I couldn't tell you "how" but I can tell you when!
We were at a Thursday night meeting, and I was holding his arm during the song (middle one I think), and all of a sudden it hit me like a ton of bricks. I loved him. I fell in love that moment.
I guess the kind, generous spirit of his just had made it's way to my heart. I just knew. Just like when I woke up to the truth of the Watchtower. Once you know...you know.
Later that night, we were at his parents house, and I just had to tell him. The funny thing is, he said he was getting ready to tell me the same thing! He fell in love that night too at the meeting. I guess cupid had fired off an arrow!
As I left his house (he lived with his parents and I lived with mine), I said I wanted to take it slow and he kissed me on the forehead. Our first kiss.
After that you couldn't pull us apart with wild horses! We were such kissy faces we got lectured all the time!
We were engaged about a month later! So much for slow It was a wonderful whirlwind of romance! We were married 8 months later. It would have been sooner if we financially could have done it.
