    6 years and I can assure you, it felt like an eternity. I felt like I was “waiting” 95% of our dating time and hard core waited for 2 years. We knew very early on.

    @katydaisy:  We had talked about it 6 months into dating but he was a little slow on the asking.   I would have voted for TO DAMN LONG!!! but that wasn’t a choice so I said 7+… we dated for 7 years, 8 months and 2 days   not that I was counting!  HAHA

    @katydaisy:  4.5 years but we are highschool sweethearts so we wanted to be out of undergrad and have my FI get a well paying job and myself accepted to graduate school and such.

    HOLY cow y’all married fast! I am at the extreme other end of the spectrum – we got engaged 12 years after we started dating. But we were teenagers and neither of us wanted to get married until 30ish. Truly.

    I’d say I actually “waited” for maybe 9 months or a year, but not unhappily. More like “I love what we have as is, but I think we’re gonna get married soon, wheeeee!”

    @katydaisy:  4 years. It was the perfect amount of time for me…although i was dying for it in the last 6 months. 😉 We also lived together for a year and a half beforehand.

    I was the one who popped the question, after nearly 8 years.  But then again, I waited only 3 days after the first day we legally could get married anywhere (same-sex wedding).
