10 Women Share The Beautiful Moment They Realized They’d Found Their Forever Person

14 min read

In a Reddit Thread, women reveal the moment they realized this is the one.


1. I was eating some of my then-boyfriend’s (now-husband’s) ice cream while we were walking, after polishing off my smaller cup a block before, and gave it back to him. He said, “have more.” “I don’t want to eat all your ice cream.” He laughed and said, “I always get a large, so you can eat part of it.” Then I realized all the things he had done in the time I had known him — small considerate things like that, and he never mentioned them or wanted thanks. That was his green flag. – zazzlekdazzle


2. Shortly after I started dating my now-fiance, he and I took my then-3-year-old sister out for frozen yogurt for her birthday. He helped her eat hers since he didn’t want any and I was eating mine. Then he taught her to play Connect Four and let her do the 3-year-old thing where they make up their own rules so they win. At one point, she looked up at him over her shoulder and said, “you’re the best big brudder in the whole world.” (She doesn’t have any other brothers, so he’s her first.) My heart melted and I became 100% certain that he was who I needed. To this day, if my sister is asked who her sisters are, he gets listed with the rest of us, usually before me. He’s definitely a keeper and I’m super grateful for him. – hippiehoppy69


3. I guess everyone has different green flags that work with them, but my moment of when I knew I was going to be with my SO for the rest of my life is when I slept over and I was on period. I laid on my back in my sleep and woke up and realized I bled on the bed. I panicked because it was only my third time spending the night and he got up and asked me what was wrong. I was so embarrassed but I told him and instead of being grossed out or anything he asked if I was okay. So while I went to the bathroom to clean up he took care of the old sheets and put on new ones. When I came back up he acted like nothing happened and we cuddled and fell asleep. He’s an amazing person in so many different ways I’m a lucky woman. – Bethel92


4. I went on a cruise, and when I came home, one of my closest friends from high school was living in my spare bedroom unbeknownst to me. Several months before, she had invited me to a Halloween party that she was throwing with the guy she was living with, 3 hours away. So I invited this guy who I had just started dating. Several months later, she got his number from a mutual friend and called in a panic saying she needed to move out of her place before her boyfriend came home. And without flinching, he left work and drove to her place, helped her pack quickly and brought her back to my apartment. He had only met her that one time before, but he knew that he had to save my friend from an abusive situation. And he knew that I would have never turned her away. I knew I was going to marry him that day. Thank you for reminding me of this story and how I need to tell it to my son so he knows what type of man his dad was before he passed away. – sometimesyoukno


5. The things he gets excited about sharing with me. If it’s thoughts, feelings, little jokes, something he saw that reminded him of me, a book or song he liked…all of these are things we can have conversations about to explore what we have in common (or at least where we can agree to disagree). Also, if I ask him if he wants to go somewhere with me on X night, and he says yes without asking what we’re doing or where we’re going. That level of trust makes me happy. – mamacrocker
