… whose Fiance proposed earlier than expected? It seems like so many bees had to wait, talk about timelines, etc. before their guy proposed.
Before we moved in together we had talked about it being a test of whether or not we would get married. Neither of us wanted to move in if marriage was not a possibility (we are both in our mid-twenties). After a few months, I knew a proposal was likely in the future, but was expecting him to wait at least 6 months to pop the question… we were engaged after 3 months 🙂
He actually worried and asked me afterward if I was SURE it wasn’t too soon, if I thought he was being too impulsive, etc.
I did scare me a little to commit so quickly but… it truly was a “when you know, you KNOW” thing, and I said YES.
6 months later, I am still estatic to be engaged to Fiance, and happy that we have a long engagement to plan and save $$$.

We didn’t have a timeline nor was I waiting. It was an absolute shock when Fiance proposed though. I never expected it to be as soon as it was. We’ve been engaged for well over a year now with our wedding coming up so soon. =) His reasoning behind it was “when you know, you know…”

No, you’re not alone by any stretch, as many of the Bees will tell you.
My Fiance proposed to me sooner than I expected and I was deliriously happy about that. We’d talked about how we felt about marriage and we knew we wanted to always be together. When he asked me to go ring shopping it was just for “ideas” so he would know what I’d like in an engagement ring. But he popped the question only a couple of weeks after that, and I was really surprised; so even though I knew he was going to propose, I didn’t know when. And yes, much earlier than expected!

We talked about it happening within the 3 year mark. He jumped the gun at 2 years and 3 months. I wasn’t waiting for it and we really didn’t discuss much about it! I did find out that he bought the ring and when he was going to do it, but that was the surprise!

My Fiance always made me think that we’d get engaged somewhere around spring of 2011… he proposed 2 weeks before Christmas in 2010. I TOTALLY was not expecting it. I loved it!! 🙂
