"She appreciates all the small things. Biggest green flag."


"On our third date we watched a movie at his place. He remembered that on our first date I ordered a Dr pepper with my meal and a chocolate chip cookie for dessert. He had Dr peppers for me in the fridge and made me home made chocolate chip cookies. He burned them but I married him two years later anyways."



"We talked about everything and the conversation never dulled, everyone at the party left and we were the only two people there and didn’t realize it for a while. 25 years later and were still running our mouths!"


"She came to my door and my puppy got excited. Without skipping a beat, she scooped up the dog & asked where the 3 of us were going.

That was 19 years ago. Puppy is gone but we’ve stuck together through hell and back."



"When my girlfriend and I had our first date her mom sent her with 50 bucks (just in case I made her pay I guess) and since I paid, she made the waiter cry by tipping him the whole 50 bucks, apparently he was having a bad day."


"We stayed at the wine bar much longer than planned, and we were trying to race to a restaurant for food before places closed. So, I offered her a piggyback ride to run it, due to her wearing heels. She jumped on, threw her arm forward and yelled “Onward!”

We didn’t make it to the restaurant in time, but did end up at the nearby diner for a few more hours. Been married just passed 3 years now!"


"First date, she was driving us to a spot to go hiking, about an hour’s drive. We’re talking and talking, but every once in awhile we wouldn’t be talking, and it just felt so comfortable and not awkward being silent together."


"He took me to an amateur stand-up comedy night. He was heartily laughing at all the jokes. They were so bad. So not funny at all. I was planning to not go on another date with him because he obviously has a bad sense of humor. As we were walking to the car he commented how bad everyone was, but he wanted to encourage them so he laughed at everyone’s jokes. We’ve been married for 12 years now."


"He took me out for coffee in a place that he made me choose. when i got there, he was already waiting and the way his eyes shined when he saw me was really adorable. we ordered and played chess, his hand was shaking. its been a year and counting."


"Not the first date, but the moment I knew I was gonna marry this man…

We went grocery shopping. It was about 9pm, we had both just been paid. The young lady in line in front of us had a very young baby, and was paying with WIC coupons and a food stamp EBT card. Her total came to about $22, and she was holding a $20. She looked dejected, and put back the one and only thing that was probably her splurge, a candy bar and an energy drink. Other than that, she had baby food, diapers, chicken, rice, bananas, formula, wipes, the bare minimum. I turned around to tell my now-husband to hand me my wallet…

I didn’t have to. He already had his out, took out a $50 hill, handed it to her and told her to keep the change. He changed her week, he changed my life. That was THE moment I knew he was it for me."


"A two-hour date that felt like five minutes. At the end of it she made some silly bet with me that she said if she lost, she’d go out with me again. And of course, she lost.

It was about eight green flags"


"Ohh something similar, early in our dating days. He was driving me to get my car when we saw a little dog running down the street. I was opening my door to get out as he stopped. Like there was no talking, didn’t even look at each other, we both just autopiloted to “save the dog,” perfectly in tandem like we’d been together our whole lives.

Was the first of many times it was clear we have the same values, and seem to just match."


"He made it clear it was a date and that he was interested without it ever feeling creepy or like he was pressuring me for anything. We talked for hours, went from restaurant to walking up and down the river to my place for a beer, then I offered for him to stay over but on a mattress on the floor (I was in a studio with no couch), not in my bed and he wasn’t pushy about anything more happening.

The first few weeks he was always sweet and respectful but made it so clear that he was interested in a relationship, no back and forth or second guessing. And now we’re married!"


"Random dance at a club. She held my hand after it ended. We were married 24 years before she passed due to cancer."


"I asked if she wanted to go to McDonald’s and split some fries because that was all I could afford at the time. She said sure, we talked a long time and split a large fries and she was so chill about it. She wanted to be with me, anywhere would have been ok…. I knew if she was willing to go out with a broke and struggling me, she would also be willing to build a life with me from the ground up.

We have been married 35 years, through ups and downs, kids, sickness, wealth and poverty."

"First date with my now wife. Had plans to go to a fancy Italian restaurant. I show up a bit early, dressed as nice as my wardrobe allows, a couple drinks before she gets there.

But anyway she arrives and we enjoy dinner, drinks, appetizers, dessert. The works.

Anyway when it’s time for the check the waitress comes over and says “a person who prefers to remain anonymous picked up yalls tab and told me to tell y’all to continue to enjoy the night.”

We were both shocked. I wasn’t keeping tabs but this was an expensive meal we just had. I tipped well of course and I thought to myself the only reason anyone would do that is because it was an obvious first date unfolding and they thought we were cute/happy/genuine or something.

We both felt pretty special. Been married for 3 years. Together for 8. We eventually paid it forward to another young couple years later."


"Our first real date was someone else’s wedding. We got tired of the reception and walked onto the pier to look at the stars. Now we’re married ourselves."


"Among other things, we talked about books, and at some point I asked for some recommendations. He said he had to think about it, but I didn’t expect him to actually do.

The next day he texted me a list of his favorite books, showing that he had been really thinking about me and that he didn’t care about those weird texting rules (that you shouldn’t text the day after a date so you won’t seem too eager)

Also, just the fact that he wanted to talk about books"
