    I'm not a teacher
    but do you mean " Where have you been all my life ?"
    because if you do .. I guess he meant that she is the right woman for him and he was looking for her his whole life..

    Wait till the teacher arrive ..

    best wishes

    I would add that it's usually a hyperbolic usage: the speaker exaggerates, in a humorous fashion, to flatter the woman in question.
