We had known each other almost 12 years when he proposed.  We didn’t date that whole time–in fact we were friends for almost 9 years before we got together.  We met at my freshman orientation for college and became friends.  I don’t think I could have ever guessed that he was my future husband when I met him. πŸ™‚

Wow, that’s quite a history!  My husband proposed about 3.5 years into meeting, 3 years into dating.  I think he would’ve liked to do it sooner, though.  πŸ™‚

we met in may 2005 at a job.  we totally had the hott’s for each other but we were both in relationships at the time.  2 years later we started dating, and 2 years after that he proposed.

I knew him for a little over 6 years before he proposed, but we only dated for 1 year and 3 months of that. I guess we just had to wait a long time before the timing was right!

We’d known each other for three months when we decided to get engaged, and he proposed two months later. When you know, you know.

@august – we grew up in the same home town…so I can’t remember exactly when I first met him, but it was probably around age 12.  we were in class together at age 15 (biology, same lab bench, big crush!).  And he proposed when I was 28.  So between 13 and 15 years!  Well worth the wait : )

We knew each other for about 10 months before he proposed. We tried to wait a year before we got engaged but we didn’t quite make it!
