You're in your own little bubble, completely and utterly focused on your fairy tale romance. But at what point do you know, that person is 'The One'. We all know that the bubble can burst and the fairy tale can be over in a moment, and the person who has been your world for the last three and a half weeks now becomes a stranger that you wouldn't even say Hi to as you pass them by in the street.
I met my husband in a Nail Salon. He was there paying for a mutual friend's nails as a Christmas present. It was Christmas Eve 2009. We chatted a little, but not a lot. We didn't swap numbers. A couple of weeks later on a night out, our mutual friend brought Brett along. It was that night that a drunken Bretty told me he loved me for the first time! Not even having been on a date I admit to thinking, "Stalker!! Weird!", if someone had told me that evening that I would later marry him, I would of de-friended them there and then! The morning after the night before though, I found myself thinking of the weirdy a lot. And I was soon tracking down his number.

But after a couple of weeks of being apart we decided to meet up and take Brett's dogs for a walk. During the walk, one of the dogs saw a duck or something and jumped at it, pulling Brett straight over into a big muddy puddle. We both fell around laughing and from that point on we were back to 'Harriet and Brett'. We got engaged soon after, in July. I went to visit Brett in Aberdeen where he was working and he proposed over the weekend.
I don't know about other people, but we found through out our relationship (and even still now sometimes) everybody wanted to have an opinion. Friends, family you name it. And sometimes I admit, it would of been a lot easier to just split up. But through it all we stayed strong and I love my husband very much, and vice versa.

My husband is my best friend, my conscience, my agony aunt, my soul mate. The best advice you can take about your relationship.... is from your own heart.
So I guess, Love At First Site.... does exist <3
