Im with you! I met my Fiance in Dec. 2010 via Facebook/Mutual Friend. After a week of messages phone calls and texts – we met downtown on a Friday. Hung out that saturday, tuesday, thursday, following weekend etc. IMMEDIATELY knew “hey i like this person. i wanna be around this person” etc. Feb 6 2011 we became officially a couple, and he proposed in September of 2011! Were getting married August 2012 — and there is without a doubt that he is the most perfect man for me and it was in Gods plan! Soo in love!

Good for you! Best of luck to your relationship πŸ™‚

My Finace and I were only dating for 10 months when he proposed and he started discussing the possibility of marriage. Like you, we had known eachother for quite a while before actually officially dating. Because I am quite young and we hadn’t dated officially very long, my parents were a bit worried first, but they warmed up over time as they see how amazing he is and how well he takes care of me. I definitely have had some people say some negative things but everyone close to me was really happy when I told them the news.

Congratulations to you! I’m sure you both will make a happy family Smile

It wouldn’t have been possible for us because we met in college, but I could definitely see it if we met later in life.

Sometimes you just know πŸ™‚  My SO and I each had that feeling the day we met, and within weeks really truly knew that this was a forever thing.  I think especially when you have kids (SO and I each have a child) like you and your Fiance do, you’re not just thinking about where to go on a Friday night. You’re seriously considering very early on the other’s traits that make them a good partner, a good parent, a good housemate, finances, etc. to determine whether he/she is a good fit for your family.  Congrats!

I knew I found my soulmate after just a few months of dating, but I wasn’t ready to be married. He wasn’t either. But we were very serious very early on. Some of my friends gave me a hard time, but 4 years later we are still madly in love.

Sometimes when you know, you know! πŸ™‚

I met my Fiance in September of 2009, he moved in with me in July of 2010, proposed in August of 2010, and we’re getting married in August of 2012.  We decided on a longer engagement but everything else was kind of whirlwind… and I wouldn’t have it any other way!

9 months for us! And we get married in one month, so an 11 month engagement. We will have been together for two years in July.

I generally fall into the camp that you should date for at least a year before getting engaged.  I am not saying that it can’t work out fine if you don’t, but if it is the right thing it will be the right thing in six months when you know each other even more.

We dated about 11 months when we got engaged and will be engaged 11 months when we get married. We both knew rather quickly that we were meant to be together.

I met my Darling Husband online in Dec 2009 and chatted a bit back and forth. He lived in England and me in NC. Then in July 10 I told him it sucked he lived so far away because I had a huge crush on him ( thank you Jim Beam). He made his irst visit in Nov ’10 and we were engaged in March ’11 on our 3rd visit. I think if there hadn’t been an ocean between us it would have happened sooner. I was 39 and he was 37. I actulay said to my friend the night I told him I had a crush on him I was going to marry him. I just knew we were meant to be together. 

Congrats and best wishes to you both!

When you know, you know! I met my fiance in June 2011. We became a couple pretty much overnight! He proposed 3 weeks ago on January 8 2012 after not quite 7 months of being together. We are planning an October 2012 wedding!!!! On our wedding day, we will have been a couple less than a year and a half! I wouldn’t change a thing! No two paths are the same….follow your heart!

My parents! My dad was 28, my mom was 23. They met in the Spring, and were married next January! They are still married, it hasn’t always been smooth sailing, but I wouldn’t worry if you KNOW πŸ™‚
