I Asked 15 People When They Knew They Loved Their S.O. — They Told Me The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

Love is so cute...sometimes.

I Asked 15 People When They Knew They Loved Their S.O. — They Told Me The Good, The Bad, And The Ugly

After feeling on top of the world about my own relationship since it started, I decided to ask other people when they just knew they loved their significant other. I knew when I realized I was so comfortable with him that I was 100% unapologetically myself, with no qualms. I could lounge around in pajamas while stuffing my face with Chinese food and he loved me all the same. That's when I knew. (After all, your comfort level is so important in a relationship.)

Out of curiosity, I asked 15 other people when that moment was for them, and their answers were both like mine and nothing like it, all at once.

When I was comfortable

"When I finally realized I had the feeling of true comfort in all aspects, and safety no matter what. When I felt like he was "home" to me was when I really realized I loved him, the person he was, and the person he made me." - Emily

He was different

"At first I was in a very lost place and I told him I never planned on dating again. He kept trying. Eventually, we hung out a few times and, being in the place I was [in life], he let me move in with his family. One day we were talking about relationships and he said, "You know, it's all about finding the right one." From that moment I knew he was different." - Kaitlin

She was my "home" 

"I knew I loved [her] a few weeks after I met her. Being with her was my new home. I felt a kind of comfort I had never felt before." - Baley

Cuddle sesh 

"When we would cuddle. I realized how much he made me feel safe." - Gabby

Our conversation 

"I was addicted to talking to him. We were long distance for a while, and it was so hard to forget him. I fell in love with the way we conversed." - Kayla


"When I knew I could trust him with my life." - Emily

He said it first 

"He felt like home. I felt safe with him and trusted him with my whole heart. I wasn't sure if it was love or lust but as soon as he told me he loved me, it solidified that I loved him." - Marissa

Right away 

"Pretty quickly. We didn't "say it" until three months in, but I wouldn't have dealt with anybody for three months had I not been in love." - Alyssa

I always missed him 

"I knew when I missed him when he had only gone to the bathroom. When I couldn't wait to wake up after we had gone to bed because I'd see him all sleepy, cute, and soft. I knew because one day I choked up at how perfect he made his toast. Love is weird and stupid and the best thing I've ever known." - Keena

 High school 

"In high school, the first time I saw him I knew I loved him." - Taylor

 I couldn't get enough of him

"After a couple of dates, I literally missed him so much. I couldn't get enough of him and couldn't go more than a few days without him. Now that we've been living together for a while I literally miss him at work." - Lilli

 Best friends 

"He was my friend before we dated. I fell in love with my best friend." - Liv

 We lived together 

"I knew it when we started living together. I didn't truly start loving him until I got to see his daily habits and little quirks that no one would know about unless you lived, day in and day out, with him." - Sara

 He made me feel like a kid again 

"To everyone else, he was not ordinary, or odd. He'd walk in a room and be unnoticeable. I laughed at him more than I did at him. The moment I knew was when he made me smile. He was my best friend, and every moment with him felt like I was a kid again." - Alexis

 The first time I saw her 

"I knew I loved her the moment I saw her. [She] was the one." - Megan

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
