Started Dating Nov 2008

Moved in together June 2009 (6 month anniversary)

Proposed June 2010

Getting married June 2011


I think we progressed well in our relationship. We did the LDR from Nov-June before moving in together. We did only live about 2 hours apart, but he transferred to another college in June , and that made us 5 hours apart, so we decided we would move here together. We knew we were going to get married, but waited to propose till June 2010, because of family, and we are waiting to get married June 2011, because we graduate in May 2011.

I commented on the other post but I’ll play! Yes, we did live together before getting engaged. We’ve been together for 5 1/2 years and we moved into our first apartment about 6 months after we started dating. We were engaged in June of this year. By the time our wedding rolls around next October we will have been together for 6 1/2 years.

We dated for 6 1/2 years prior to getting engaged.

1 1/2 of those we were both in college (bi coastal during summers, me in CA him in NY)

1 year of long distance (me still in college in NC, him in NYC)

1 year of living apart in the same city (NYC)

3 years of living together (2 different apartments)

We did a lot of growing up in that time. I was 19 when we started dating and 26 when we got engaged. Having multiple stages of our relationship (college, long distance, professional but living apart, living together, upgrading apartment and adopting a pet) really cemented our relationship.

We were committed to each other and talking about “forever” after a year of dating. But we took our time getting established in our careers and settled in NYC before getting engaged.

No, we didn’t live together and won’t live together until we’re married.  We dated for eight years before he proposed.

No, we haven’t lived together. We dated for about a year and a half, got engaged, and will be married/move in together after about 2 1/2 years together.
