I remember the day I met my husband. I was leading a community outreach event at the office and he was put on my planning team. I didn't know what it was at the time and it's pretty hard to explain, but there was a mix of feelings--mainly butterflies and the feeling that I'd known him my whole life. I had a boyfriend and he had a girlfriend so we didn't pursue it at that time... Over 6 months we kept gravitating towards one another, but didn't act on it until both of our relationships ended... I was hesitant to start dating a coworker, but I couldn't shake the feeling that I would be missing something if I didn't give it a chance... And the rest is history!!

You'll know when something bad happens. You get sick, have a horrible day/week/month/year at work, or have some family nightmare to deal with.
"The one" is not for the good times, but for the bad ones.

Met The One when she visited her high school friend / my college classmate in our college town. Flirted, nothing happened. She showed up under "people you may know" on Facebook years later, we had unknowingly moved to the same city. Messaged her, met for drinks, kissed at the end of the night and have been an item ever since. Married with kids now!

I think it's completely false that you can know from a first meeting. For me, knowing someone was "the one" was when I could talk to and be around that person as if he was family. Like, all barriers down, fart loudly around each other, being yourself the way you can be around people who've watched you grow up kind of family. Along with that feeling, I felt like I could spend the rest of my life with him. That's how I knew he was the one.

Do you agree with firms discriminating against those who are not from a minority background? Personally, I think it should be based on merit, and the diversity quota makes me frustrated. For example, why should a black candidate from a wealthy family be given priority over a white candidate from a poor family? This is especially concerning as it is an entirely race, sex or gender focused form of discrimination. These are immutable characteristics which none of us can change.
