Love, Sex & Relationships GMP SIG
On the Good Men Project’s Love, Sex, and Relationships Social Interest Group’s convocast, lead by Nina Rubin, we discussed, “How do you know when you’ve met the right person?”
You meet, talk, share a meal, and suddenly you know. This is the person you want to see again, wake-up with every morning, and love forever. This scenario is your dream come true. The journey’s over. You’re home.
How do you know?
During our conversation, it was hard to put that feeling into words. It’s both emotional, physical, and mental. It’s often unexpected and new. It could’ve been a smile, a laugh, or a look.
We did come up with a few descriptions. You know because you expect to see him/her again – soon. And during the dating phase, you notice the little things, that your love is there for you, sharing ups and downs, understanding that it is all a part of life. You give in return – not because it’s the right thing to do, but because you want to.
Have the conversation.
However, none of this happens without conversation. Words of endearment can mean different things to different people. As terrifying as it may be, the words of commitment need to be said – and that may be the hardest thing of all.
We want to hear your point of view. Share your story of how you met your partner. How did you know? What was the telling moment in the relationship? How did you feel when you were alone, after the first encounter?
Not all amazing relationships end in marriage or last a lifetime. However, when it feels like two journeys have come together, it’s amazing. How did you react? Did you share your feelings? With a friend or family member? Did you tell the person?
