He asked my dad in early September 2013, and he proposed October 18 (the same day he picked up the ring from the jeweler 🙂 )

exoticchic:  3 months.  🙂  But, that was also because he was out of state for a while.  He probably would have done it sooner if he could have.

Exciting!  My guy waited 2 (3?) days and proposed in a random hotel room because he couldn’t wait any longer, that cutie.  I didn’t know that he had asked them until after.  

Buuuuut… he did wait like 12 years to get to that point, lol!  (To be fair, neither of us were any rush for the first, oh, 11 years.)

exoticchic:  I didn’t actually know that my FI asked my dad until we told my parents of the engagement. Apparently, way back  in April or so, he asked my dad. He bought the ring in July, and proposed just before Christmas. It drove my parents crazy haha they had to pretend they had no idea

DH waited about 5 minutes!  He got my Dad’s blessing while I was in the shower, then he asked me as soon as I came out and started folding laundry.
