We were together for 5 months before getting engaged.

As we grow older, as we continue to change with age, there is one thing that will never change about me, I will keep falling in love with you all over again every single day

You must be so excited!!! Can't wait to hear details when you get engaged!

Me and FH were together a little over 2 years when he proposed, he told me he bought the ring though about 10 months prior to proposing, just wanted to wait for the right time and place, then he had to wait for the actual plan to go through which took some time as well. He said he was going to propose right after he bought the ring, but changed his mind because he didn't like the way he was going to do it. I'm happy the way things turned out though, plus we already have a long engagement and if he did it 10months earlier it would have been an even LONGER engagement!

I dated my guy for around 4-5 years. We started dating in high school but broke up for a summer and half a school year so it equals out to around 4-5 years. And then when we get married it'll be about 6 years.

 

 

 

 I feel like a kid. Pinch me. This kind of love certainly can't be real. Oh wait, it is :)

thanks! hehe, i'll be so excited to tell you guys how/when it happened. I almost can't stand the wait, but its still fun at the same time (if that makes any sense)

2dbride - I'm so glad you're finally able to get married =)

HTT - i totally understand. i knew from the first month that i wanted to be with my bf for the rest of my life. he felt the same way but we didn't actually bring it up until about the 6 or 7 month mark bc we were both too nervous to tell the other person =)

DH was my high school sweetheart even though he was already in college. I was 16 when we started dating so we had quite a while to wait. He proposed just after my Junior year of college. We had been together for 3.5 years . We waited until I graduated college to get married so our engagement was a year and seven months. When we got married we had been together 5 years. We've now been together 8 years.

My husband and I were dating 4 1/2 years before he proposed! We waited a while (despite having talked about it and knowing we wanted to be together) since he was still finishing his masters program and I had just started my teaching job and still had a lot of loans to pay down. People were wondering when it was going to happen, and it eventually did! We just got married this past summer, and things are going so well! We are so happy!

For me, the proposal was on our four year anniversary. I thought that was way too long... but I know everyone is different, and I didn't want to push too much.

But I had a really hard time!!!

This is kind of funny because my fiance and i have only been engaged 2wks, we’ve been dating 2 1/2years. We’ve been talking about it on and off for the last year. I felt he was stringing me along so i told him that we should take some time apart to decide where our relationship was going. Less than 3wks later he proposed. I didnt think he would be involved or even interested in the details. Now he's coming home daily with names of country clubs and reception halls, wedding themes, colors and favor idea, etc. He is telling everyone who will listen. I was in walmart yesterday and ran into one of his co-workers he said congrats let me see the ring. He said Darryl is really excited and loves you very much. He has done a 360 much to my surprise in the past 60days.

I pretty much proposed to him. We are a long distance couple, and have been one for 10 years.
