Fun! I like this, cute idea!

How long have you been together: About 17 months

-How long have you been officially waiting? Hmm, I think we started talking marriage March of last year, but I wasn’t actually on “Ring Watch” until August and that was just wishful thinking. “Ring Watch 2013” until November

-What do you consider waiting? Waiting to me, is knowing that an engagement is pending or in the works. That the process has started and you are just waiting for that special moment!

-Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? My timeline is March. I think his mom may have told him this too… I’m not going to “walk” but at that point we would need to sit down and see what the hold up is. I moved in knowing an engagement was coming, not a possibility. And I think 6 months after I’ve moved in is a good time period to get it together.

– Do you live together? Yep, moved into his house in September.

– Do you have children? No kids, just 3 very lovable cats. Though my cat is on “vacation” at my parents currently

-Do you share finances? No. We are open about our finances and money is not an issue to us though. We are more like “what’s mine is yours”

-Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? No timeline. It’ll happen when it happens. I’d never leave him — EVER.

– How long have you been together: We’ve been together for 3.5 years (half years count, right?) πŸ™‚

-How long have you been officially waiting? Hrmmm… since I discovered all of the lovely wedding things on pinterest. Nope – probably a year or so! We started talking about wedding stuff a while ago.

-What do you consider waiting? Right now, I’m waiting for not so much a proposal – but waiting for him “to be able to afford a beautiful ring” (his words, not mine) I wouldn’t care if he proposed with a ring-pop!! He’s a traditional kinda guy though!

-Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? Nope. Nope. Nope! Couldn’t imagine my life without him!!

– Do you live together? Yep! It’ll be three years this month πŸ™‚

– Do you have children? Nope! One day!

-Do you share finances? We have seperate bank accounts, but that’s just because we already had them when we met each other. We know the passwords to each others accounts, and everything is pretty equally divided! It’s a non-issue for us πŸ™‚

-How long have you been together We have been together for almost 2 1/2 years.

-How long have you been officially waiting? Around a year or so since we first started to talk about it so I suppose that’s the same thing.

-What do you consider waiting? T me, waiting started once we first started to talk about it.

-Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? I would like it before our 3 year anniversary because the date we have in mind is a year and a half after that.

-Do you live together? Yes, we have been for about 5 months now.

-Do you have children? We have a dog that we got recently that we call our daughter and our fur baby so yes. πŸ™‚

-Do you share finances? We did start a shared account a few months ago as well because it makes it easier for paying bills and rent instead of going back and forth but we do still have our own, seperate accounts.

– How long have you been together A year and some change

-How long have you been officially waiting? Since we started talking about it – oh about 6 months ago.

-What do you consider waiting? I think it is different for everyone. In my case, we’re  waiting because we’re going to travel so I can meet his parents first before we officially get engaged. Also, he really wants to do the asking at the holidays. So we’re waiting till this December. We get to ring shop this fall. WOO HOO!

So to me, the waiting bit is the part in between the “lets get married” discussion and the actual proposal.

-Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? See above, but we’re getting engaged this December… mutual agreement.

– Do you live together? In one month I can say yes!

– Do you have children? Nope.

-Do you share finances? In one month I can say yes! We’re going to get a joint savings when he moves in.

– How long have you been together 8 months but we’ve only physically been in the same place for 5 and a half. I think those months apart have really helped cement us.

-How long have you been officially waiting? im very new to this game – maybe about a month.

-What do you consider waiting? I absolutely agree with a previous poster in that its the time between discovering and agreeing that you both want to be married to each other within the same rough time frame, and the actual proposal. For me it became REAL a few weeks ago when we started emailing rings back and forth!

-Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? Nope but from hints I assume the propsal will happen sometime this year although he really wants it to be a surprise and keeps teasing me that it’ll ‘definitely, for sure, absolutely be within the next 3 years’. GRR!

– Do you live together? exactly one week today were both leaving our current places of residence (I’m in Spain and he’s in England) to move into the flat I own in Scotland! I’m crazy excited!

– Do you have children? No. I have however been told about a conversation in which he and his parents discussed what our future kids will call them – his mom doesn’t want to be called granny and his dad would rather go by ‘pops’! This makes me smile.

-Do you share finances? we have our own accounts but budget together and definitely live by the ‘what’s mine is yours motto’ although sometimes for me it’s more like ‘what’s mine is mine and what’s yours is mine’. He seems ok with that though!

– How long have you been together – 2 1/2 years

– How long have you been officially waiting? – about 8/9 months

– What do you consider waiting? – since I brought it up

– Do you have a timeline? walk date? other? – yes, had two timelines – I understand why we missed the first, and it was mostly my fault. The second was my walk date but we came to a compromise on that, which I am mostly okay with. Also, sometimes I think I have to listen to the universe and what it tells me (as much of a hippie as that makes me sound).

– Do you live together? No – super LDR since about 3 months after we met

– Do you have children? – No

-Do you share finances? – No
