How do you express "the beginning place of love?"

Here, we start to love.
Here, we start out our love.

@user3780 Can you add a little more context? Is this for a conversational use, a poem, an academic paper, an email, etc.? (We'll happily supply expressions, regardless, but it will get you a better answer if you add more specificity.) – jbelacqua Mar 20 '11 at 20:52

One option is: "to get (romantically) involved". To fall in love is also a classic.

yes, fall in love – user3780 Mar 22 '11 at 12:33

A few options:

  • Love at first sight
  • Beginning of our relationship
  • Became more than friends
  • Things became serious
  • This is when I knew I loved you
  • Where we first met/kissed/touched

I am also fond of F'x's classic: This is where we fell in love.

"This is where our love began to flower."

Or also: “blossom” or “flourish”… – F'x Mar 20 '11 at 20:53
