How did you meet your partner?Hinge
When did you first know you were in love? November 2018, about 7 months after we first started dating. I wrote about every single one of our dates when we started dating and when I go back to these entries my writing changes to how I felt that we were both in love with each other even though we hadn’t said it yet. It all was about the power of feeling it at the time that makes it impossible to pinpoint an exact moment aside from thinking back to that feeling (and reading about it from my writing!)
