@searock:  Yup. That’s me. I’m hoping it’ll be around the time of our 1 year anniversary (in September) but definitely before 18 months. He is also on board with this timeline. If all goes according to our mutual plan, we’ll be married before we’ve been together 3 years.

I’m 34 and he’s 42… so yes, I think this is a huge factor. We both know who we are and what we want. We know (or have met) our education and career goals. The other day we were sitting around the house and he asked “Are we that old married couple already?” and I said “I’m pretty sure after our 3rd date we were already that old married couple!” 😛

  • Wedding: February 2014

I’m expecting to get engaged in the next few months. We started dating 10 months ago and my SO asked me to go ring shopping at around 7-8 months. I would say I started waiting after ring shopping. I’m waiting but not feeling anxious about it! We’re in our early-to-mid 30s, both own our own homes, are well-established in our respective career, and are financially set. We don’t feel the need to wait much longer but Blue Nile apparently needs us to wait months as my ring has been on backorder for a while now!

@MexiPino:  Sounds like our anniversaries are very close! What day did you two start dating?

We are 32 and 33, dating 8 months. We both know we want to get married and have a long term future planned around each other. I’ve never loved anyone like this and I may be waiting but it’s okay bc I know we will be together. Even with my ex husband, I didn’t know like this, ever, and we were together 10 years.

When we were dating I was sort of waiting for the offficial proposal the last 2 months of the year.

Like we had decided on a date and place but were waiting to buy the ring so he could “officially” propose (his idea).  I guess he wanted me to have a ring when everyone asked about it.  We officially got engaged a week or so after our 1 year anniversary even though we decided to get married at about 9-10 months.

We met at 27 and were both 28 when we got engaged.

As far as when I expect a proposal might happen? Not sure. we take a lot of vacations but he prob wouldn’t do it on vacay bc he’d think I would expect it. He likes to surprise me and he’s not traditionally romantic. so who knows?

We’ve been together for almost a year now, but started seriously talking about getting married within the next 2 years a few months ago. OH would like to get married next year, but I would prefer the year after, and he’s happy to go with that. He’s been dropping hints about proposing around my birthdaytoned if October, but we’ll see. 

I’m 27, he’s 29. We love each other, we know it’s what we want and are independent, so why not! We also both want to have children soon, but I prefer not to have another child before being married, and he respects that.

I started dating my SO at the begining of the year. I am 39 and he is 41. I had been in two long term relationships and I have never felt like this. It’s not like I think everything will be perfect or that it is some sort fairytale, but I have never been more sure of anyone. I can be totally myself, and he feels similar. We can talk about anything. I am a pretty logical person in some ways, and never thought that I would want to (and know it is coming) be engaged so soon, but it just feels right.

We make our one year in September (the supposed proposal month, but I’m thinking more October) I’m 25 he’s 31 and I’m finishing grad school to get my doctorate (in April). We couldn’t have met at a more perfect time!

I am 28 and my SO is 29. Our first date was the end of October 2012, and we will be engaged sometime in August. We are going to purchase a home in 2015, and get married in 2015/2016.

My SO and I have been together for almost a year and a half now, but when I brought up engagement for the first time we had been together 9 months. Wink I didnt tell him I wanted to be engaged right then and there, just brought up my feelings on the subject and where I wanted to be when he was ready. I was just a month shy of 28, he was 29, and we both are financially established with stable jobs and income.

I will now be 29 in Feb and he is turning 30 in Sept. We will be getting engaged this year.
