I just got engaged in July, but I was a waiting bee for a longggg time. We dated for 6 years before he finally proposed. I had some really tough times waiting, but I’m glad I decided to stick it out because I can’t imagine being with anyone else. I think some guys just need more time than others. My fiancee was abandoned by both his parents when he was a baby and I think he had some issues with committment because of that.  I think he just needed to see that I was really, really, committed to him.

Good luck ladies. πŸ™‚

@Novella: I knew you were asking how long we’d been together, was just pointing out the difference as I think it’s interesting the speeds at which people feel “ready”, etc.. πŸ™‚

@lumos: What age is Grade 10? (annoying question, I know)

@claireos: Ah right. 16 is school-leaving age here. (unless you choose to do 6th form)

Well we are engaged now but we were just shy of six years when he proposed. I was beginning to think it wasn’t going to happen.

I am now engaged but I waited 6 years for him to ask! We are getting married next year after 7 years! 6.5 of those living together!

I never doubted him, I just knew he needed more time than I did to prepare himself mentally for marriage… and really, at the end of the day, thats not a bad thing! I would rather he wait until he is ready than just ask out of peer pressure!

We have been together eight years, but I’ve been waiting for just over 2 years.  I hope that it’s coming soon.  His family is getting annoyed, I think, because they refer to me as his “wife.”

I’m not as far along as you guys – 3 years and one month for us, but sometimes it feels like 6 years.  πŸ™‚   It’s good to know there are others out there waiting for “awhile” and I’m not alone.

I hope you all get proposals soon!  Not sure when mine’s coming.  my boy is coming along slowly.  But, I’m sure it’ll happen.  No set timeline, but I’m thinking a proposal within a year….I hope.  Else I’ll be joining this thred for real soon.

I have been with my SO for 6 1/2 years. We talk about our future but I don’t consider myself as waiting, so I don’t know if I count for this thread..

@lumos: Wikipedia tells me that I’ve been with my SO since I was in 8th grade, then. (or Year 9, as it was to me) 8th grade sounds so much younger than Year 9! And I don’t think it’s the numbers, I think it’s associations to American TV/films. I never knew what ages any of the grades were but 4th grade and 8th grade get mentioned a lot. While we’re on the subject, when does high school start and elementary school and is there another one as well?

School is in session from September to June with July/Aug off for summer break. Elementary can be kindergarden to Grade 5, Grade 6 or Grade 7 depending on the school. Middle school can be Grades 6 to 8 or Grades 7 to 9. Highschool can be Grade 8 to 12, 9 to 12 or 10 to 12. You start kindergraden at age 4 or 5 and finish grade 12 at age 17 or 18.  In the US they refer to HIghschool as Freshman, Sophmore, Junior, Senior or something like that but we don’t use those terms here in Canada. πŸ™‚

My boyfriend and I have been together for 11 years but I’d say I’ve been waiting for a proposal for about a year.. But then again I don’t like to say “waiting” because we’ve always known we’ve wanted to get marroed, and we’re now in a place where we can πŸ™‚
