They say when you find the right person, you know. Now a couple has proven that sometimes you know before you’ve lost all of your baby teeth.

In an adorable Instagram post for the account “The Way We Met,” a man told the story of how he met his future wife Laura in pre-school. He said he knew right away that they would get married someday. 

“Laura and I met in preschool. One of my very first memories is of being 3 years old and standing up in front of my pre-school class, declaring that I would marry her someday. As kids, Laura taught me how to ride the swings, draw rolling hills, and the ‘right way’ to properly eat string cheese. We have fond memories of playing hide-and-go-seek, chasing after each other on the playground, and mischievously staying up during nap time. I was enamored with Laura as a child, and I still am to this day. Eventually, we lost touch upon entering our Elementary School days and for the next seven years, our family’s annual Christmas cards was the only way we ever saw each other’s faces. It wasn’t until High School that we reconnected by happenstance through a mutual friend. Within two weeks, we decided to be boyfriend and girlfriend. We continued to date through out all of High School, even though we went to different schools. We even stuck together long-distance while attending colleges in different states. We remained a resilient couple until May 23rd, 2015 when I decided to stay true to my preschool pledge and make Laura my wife. I proposed to her at the place it all began… our preschool classroom.”

He said that the pair lost touch during elementary school, only seeing each other on Christmas cards their family would exchange. They met again in highschool through a mutual friend and decided to date after just two weeks of being reunited. 

The pair has been together ever since, even through a long-distance relationship when they went to colleges in different states. The man even shared their adorable engagement story, which paid homage to their rich history together.

We remained a resilient couple until May 23rd, 2015 when I decided to stay true to my preschool pledge and make Laura my wife,” he wrote. “I proposed to her at the place it all began … our preschool classroom.”

After reading their story, people could not handle the cuteness, even calling them the “real-life Cory and Topanga,” a nod to the lifelong lovebirds from the show “Boy Meets World.” 

Would love to see this love story turn into a movie!” one user wrote. 

“This! My heart just exploded!” another said.
