Jimmy Fallon thinks people “just know” who to date.
The 39-year-old comedian and future The Tonight Show host is a big fan of intuition when it comes to matters of the heart.
Jimmy has been married for six years to producer Nancy Juvonen and he’s convinced he knew they were perfect for each other from the outset.
“The truest thing I can say is . . . sometimes you just know. But that’s terrible advice. The only people who say that are the people who just knew. How do you know unless you found that person?” he mused in the March 2014 edition of Men’s Health magazine.
“I think you just look for the person you have the most fun with. And that’s enough. You realize, ‘Wait, I can just keep having fun with her forever?’ Yes, you can do that. It’s the secret. Look at Paul Newman and Joanne Woodward.”
Jimmy is preparing to take over hosting duties of iconic late-night program The Tonight Show from Jay Leno.
Johnny Carson presented the show for 30 years before Jay took his place, and Jimmy never would have imagined he’d be part of that legacy.
“The Tonight Show didn’t seem like an actual job that you could have,” he explained.
“All you remember is watching Johnny Carson and thinking he would never retire. You thought he would live forever. So there was no way for that to be a dream of mine.”
The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon will premiere on February 17.

Will Smith will be Jimmy Fallon’s first guest when he takes over The Tonight Show.
The Men in Black actor will sit down for an interview with the comedian as he takes over the iconic late night show next month, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
U2 will also join the line-up, serving as musical guest.
Jimmy announced the news during his winter Television Critics Association press tour session on Sunday.
As THR reports, the comedian’s former Saturday Night Live co-star Tina Fey previously mentioned she hoped she’d serve as his first guest.
“Oh I hope so. I’m hoping that the first Tonight Show will open with me singing the national anthem. I haven’t pitched that to anyone. Maybe the French national anthem? I could be the musical guest,” she mused.
Jimmy said the first three weeks of the show have already been booked, although he declined to offer further details.
However, the funnyman has high hopes Justin Timberlake might clear his schedule for an appearance.
“Whenever he’s available to play. He’s always great to play with,” Jimmy said of his frequent collaborator.
NBC’s The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon is scheduled to premiere February 17.
Will is expected to promote his new movie, Akiva Goldsman fantasy drama Winter’s Tale, during the show.

Justin Timberlake is giving fans a free listen of The 20/20 Experience a week before its release.
The first half of the 32-year-old singer’s two-part album climbed to the top of the charts after it hit shelves in March.
With part two of two dropping in just days, Justin has announced on Twitter his fans can get an exclusive sneak peek of what’s next.
“Since #The2020Experience #2of2 is out next Monday, it’s streaming for FREE all week on @iTunesMusic! http://smarturl.it/2of2stream,” the star tweeted before responding to an excited fan, “You’re good… It’s ALL just The 20/20 Experience to me, brother!! #Complete”.
Justin was scheduled to perform one of his new tracks on late-night talk program The Tonight Show on Monday, but according to Deadline the show has been canceled.
The outlet claims he will still appear for a sit-down interview on the show, but he’s feeling too “under the weather” to sing.
Another source reports that Justin’s upcoming Jimmy Fallon performance was “scrubbed” for marketing purposes.
Apparently executives behind the scenes want to “ensure maximum impact” for a free show on Tuesday that Justin is putting on in Hollywood for ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live.
The pop star is expected to sing tracks from his new album during the highly anticipated performance. Producers are reportedly hoping the concert will secure more viewers for the program while simultaneously boosting sales for Justin’s new album.
The 20/20 Experience 2 of 2 is officially scheduled for release on September 30.
