@MissLadyInWaiting_xx:  I don’t think it’s too early at all! I am actually in a similar situation.. dating for 8 months and we are absolutely certain this is it. When you know, you know… you know?? 🙂 We are just starting to tell our families and are planning to get engaged in December. I love your story and think it’s great that you have a trusted jeweler you can work with! Best of luck to you and your SO!

Honestly, everyone has their own timeline!  One of my best friends met, got engaged and married his wife in the space of three months.  They’ve been together 7 years now, with two adorable kids.  I knew my guy was the one at 6 months, but we waited another year and a half to get engaged.  Another friend waited 6 years with her SO before ring shopping, so it’s all relative.  When it’s right, it’s right, whether you’ve known each other for 100 days or 1000 days.

@MissLadyInWaiting_xx:  Also I just read your first post (New Love, New Start) and I, too, broke off another engagement! i am amazed at how similar our situations are. I am so happy for you that everything worked out the way it was supposed to!

@stephee:  Love this!

@MissLadyInWaiting_xx:  I’m confused. Didn’t you say that you picked a black diamond e ring in your other thread? Or am I getting it wrong??

@MissLadyInWaiting_xx:  Exactly how I felt. Like no one must have been through what I was going through .. but now I realize it’s more common than I thought and I’m thankful that it turned out this way, since I learned so much about myself in the process! Ok, one more weird coincidence – I just turned 25 two weeks ago. Crazy!!

FI and I knew we were the one for each other three months in, and by 8 months I was obsessing over wedding stuff online (age 25)!! I’m glad FI waited until we were together 2 years until he proposed just so we could make absolutely sure, and I think it’s better to be dating at least 1 year out of principle, but I don’t think it’s too early to go ring shopping and let him know what you like for when the time comes… exciting!!!

I don’t think it’s too early unless by “We decided to go ring shopping,” you actually meant, “I brought up ring shopping, and he went along with it.”

It’s just a friendly warning. It’s a pretty common thing that happens. Not only do you not want to pressure him, but you don’t want to get your hopes up.

People can definitely get engaged after 8 months, but it warrants some serious thought. Are you sure you really know your SO well enough at this point?
