I wouldn’t worry about it, you’re both adults and six months is plenty of time to know someone and fall in love.  My Fiance and I have only been together for a year – we got engaged after six months and are getting married in September.  It’s fine!

I am FIRMLY of the belief that when you know, you know! As was the case with my DH. We dated for 5 months before getting engaged. And shortly before he popped the question, I had been bitching about someone else getting engaged because I really wanted to be engaged and start planning my life with the man who I knew I was going to marry! I ended up saying to him after that (but before we were engaged) “I’m glad we’re waiting. That way no one can put a damper on our day by saying we’re rushing into anything.”

When we did get engaged not to long after that conversation, my friends and family were THRILLED!! They were nothing but supportive and happy for us. I wouldn’t worry about their reaction at all. If they see that you’re happy, then they’ll be happy for you!

@nor_cal07 Are you my best friend? Because change a few of those details of your best friend’s courtship (bus rather than fair, mostly) and you have my own story! Well, minus the having a kid thing. Freaky!

Ok, so I didn’t have an account before reading this post. I felt compelled to answer though. I’m a waiter, or even to-be-waiter. I have no clue. All I know is that have had 2 serious relationship (prior to my current boyfriend), and never in my before have I felt like “THIS.” And what I mean, is that I KNOW, this is the man I want to spend the rest of my life with & we haven’t been dating that long, only 5 months. I have been given a man that is everything I need and more. Who cares how long we have been dating or how long we have known each other, he told me he loved me after a month & a half.

If you feel, I say, GO FOR IT.

I never understood that saying, “you will just know,” but now I do and I’m sure you do too.

We got engaged right at the year mark. I think as long as YOU know this is whats right for you then who cares. They may be skeptical at first but if the situation is healthy they will get over it. Has he talked to your parents about this?
