    At what age did you find the person who you know you want to spend the rest of your life with?

    If you have not found that person yet then this thread is not for you. Please do not derail this thread into a circle of self pity due to loneliness (Use this thread for that; http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show....php?t=4353978)

    Mostly curious because I'm like 70% sure most people didn't find the one (or at least didn't realise that person was the one) at 17/18 which seems to be the age some people on this website think they should find the right person.

    Okay thanks

    I met him when I was 15 and he was 16 and we became a couple at age 17/18 so I'd say I met the one at 17 since he was my best friend before that

    I got lucky finding someone really well suited for me first time around but in general, I wouldn't have expected to meet someone serious and someone I'd class as the one until I was in my 20s. It happens when it happens, though. A lot of people see themselves as failures or undateable if they haven't settled down by 20 which isn't the case and so many people come off as desperate because they want what everyone else has got, especially at a young age and they don't realise that kind of approach only further lessens their chances of finding someone.
