Great idea Novella! I have been with my BF for over 7.5 years. (sinces I was 19 and he was 20) We have now been living together for the past 1.5 years afer doing long distance for 4 years. I was on the waiting list (in teh top 5) but had myself taken off because I was so unhappy with lack of progress. I am hoping for a proposal in the first half of 2012.

My fiance and I were together for 7 years and 2 months before I finally got my proposal in December of 2010!

I’m (now) engaged, but I can commiserate–I waited nearly 9 years for my proposal (we got together at 18, and 21, and had a daughter at 21/24). I went through stages of being really impatient to not caring, to completely hating Fiance for making me wait (especially years after our daughter was born), but it was worth the wait, let me tell you! Hang in there, ladies. :]

  • Wedding: February 2013

Bf & I will celebrate our 8th dating anniversary this December!  He’s promised a ring within the first half of next year, but I am getting more and more worried as this year ends b/c of all that will be going on: last semester of law school, Bar Exam prep + taking the Bar, at least 1, possibly 2 moves, all the while HOPING for a job offer!  I’m not sure how either of us could plan much of anything durring all that!

Another 6 year person here! We just celebrated 6 years a couple of weeks ago, and based on some recent hints I think the proposal is coming within the next two months

7 years 4 months and counting. The ring will probably be ready this coming week though. Hopefully he won’t wait too long after that!

Hmmm I think there should be a distinction between “waiting” and “being a couple”. I am waiting right now but I haven’t been waiting for a proposal for the past 7 1/2 years. It’s only become something I thought and cared about over the past year. Either way, coming up to 7 1/2 years for us.

So, question: Have some of you really been waiting since Day 1 for the proposal?

@VickyAurea: On no…I’d say I was expecting/hoping for a proposal for the last 3 years or so. But I assumed she just meant how long you’ve been together. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Wedding: June 2012

We’ve been together 7 3/4 years – since grade 10. We used to talk about marriage in hypothetical terms, but started talking about things more explicitly almost a year ago now (though we knew how we felt before that). Now we’ve got our stone and will likely be getting the ring made together soon… I’m hoping for a proposal super soon so we can plan a wedding for this upcoming Summer!

So obviously we’re married now, but I wanted to chime in and say … been there! Mr. Jaguar proposed a month before our 7 year anniversary.
