DrunkInLove: larissakay: Sorry about the poll! I got tired of writing out stuff lol and I figured there’s a TON of different options to fit everyone! Love these stories though! Amazing how you can connect after not talking and also to have the maturity to know what you want prior to a life long committment! Thank you for sharing!!!!

I’m not really sure if I could fit in any of your options! We said I love you 9 days in, got engaged after 6 months, and married 13 months after that. We would have gotten married sooner but we were waiting until we graduated from college (got married the week after graduation, so that is all we were waiting for hah!)

justinsgirl2016: We had our first date two days shy of my 33rd birthday. I knew I loved him around 2 months but we didn’t say it until 4 months. We had our where is this relationship going conversation after a year. He proposed 3 months shy of our 2 yr dating anniversary. We married 1 month shy of our 3 yr dating anniversary. I would have been happy dating longer if we had met younger but we are hoping to have kids so we needed to keep the timeline moving. 🙂

justinsgirl2016: We said I love you about two weeks into dating, and just got engaged a little over a year and a half after we started dating. Our wedding is in another year and a half, so by the time we get married, we’ll have been together for three years.
I’ve known since about two weeks in that I was done and dusted, he was it for me. I still wasn’t in a huge rush to get engaged, although now that we are, I sort of wish we could move the wedding up a bit. We don’t want a winter wedding and venues in our area book pretty far in advance so we are pretty much stuck with a year and half, as that’s the earliest we could really plan anything for the type of wedding we’re looking to have.

We started dating when we were 17, fell in love very quickly (said “I love you” after a month), and knew right away that we would get married someday. We got engaged after 3.5 years together (right before we turned 21) and got married after we finished university (we were 23 and had been together 6 years).

Newlywed here! Married 10/2. Darling Husband and I were together 4.5 years before there was a ring on my finger. I could have told you within the first year I knew I was going to marry him….eventually. I was only 19 when we met though. We waited, took our time, let our relationship grow into something unbreakable. Our 5 year anniversary (and my 25th bday) was September and we married in October. I wouldnt have wanted it any other way!

justinsgirl2016: I wouldn’t say it was love at first sight, but we were friends already and once we got the ball rolling and went on a date, things just progressed naturally and we fell in love. We were also 17 years old.
I went off to college and he joined the military. We wanted to stay together so we did long distance, agreeing that we’d break up if it wasn’t working out. It was hard at times but we figured out how to make it work so we could stay together. We continuing dating long distance for 5 years. During that time, we talked about the future and getting married. Then, at 22 (5 years later)we got engaged.
We were married 10 weeks later. No one batted an eye or mentioned the short timeframe – it wasn’t like us getting married was a surprise to anyone!
For us, we were young, so the 5 year “wait” to get engaged was kinda necessary (in my opinion – I still think we were too young to get married at 22!). We grew up a lot during those 5 years and it just happened that we grew up together.

We dated for 4 years then moved in togethe. He proposed after 7yrs of living togethe. We will be married next year in May. So total we will have been together for 12years when we get married.

We don’t fall into any of the poll categories… We said ILY after a few weeks (we just *knew*), got engaged after a couple years, and the wedding will happen by the three year point.

There were 10 years between when we started dating and when we got engaged! We were 20 when we started dating. Fell in love after two months. Broke up after 2.5 years but stayed good friends. Got back together 2 years after that. Moved in a year later and got engaged 4 years later. Neither of us ever thought we were getting married at all. Towards the end of that time, I changed my mind and told him I wanted to be married to him, but I’m not going to leave him if he doesn’t want to get married. Turns out he did too, so we got engaged. Getting married in 2 months, which is over 11 years after we started dating!

none of these really apply. i was just about 30 when i met Darling Husband and my timeline might be a little different from someone in their 20’s.
we met and started dating. after 9ish months, i saw a future together. we talked about it loosely. at the year mark, i brought up if marriage was where we were headed. he said yes but wanted to get some things in order first.
so we dated 2 years before he officially proposed (he wanted to do the big proposal) and we got married 7 months later.
so from meeting him to getting married was 2 years and 9 months. we have been married a little over 2 years.

- Wedding: April 2017 - Hogarths, Solihull
Love at first sight for me. Rugby player mmmm 🙂 saw him in the college common room. Turned out he knew my friend so I forced her to introduce us 🙂
He asked for my number and we started dating about a month later (once I had dumped the guy I was already going out with. I know I’m awful but… I was only 16 and didn’t really fancy him)
We moved in together after 5 years, bought a house shortly after 6. We got engaged this year a month shy of 7.5 years.
We’ll be getting married on our 9 year Anniversary (n’aww) He’ll have just turned 27 and I’ll be 25 (almost 26)
He had a nightmare trying to hide the ring purchase from me – we work together too and so it’s hard to keep things secret from each other! He ended up putting the ring on his Credit Card because it was on offer and he didn’t want to wait any longer! 🙂

Like most, our relationship didn’t fit into these categories. We started dating, fell in love after a couple months (he said the words after exactly 2 I believe), knew we’d get married someday after around 6 months, moved in together the following year, and then got engaged a few months before our three year anniversary. We got married a year later. We were in no real “rush”….we just took things at the right pace for us.

justinsgirl2016: Our story may not be relevant as we are older – I am now 53. My Darling Husband and I met in 2006, I was instantly smitten. We were friends (common interest, same group of friends) for three years, then I could stand it no longer (LOL) so hinted at how I felt. A week later he asked me out, and we both knew from that first date that we were going to stay together. We moved in together in 2011, were engaged in 2013 and married in 2014. Still truly happy and feeling so blessed to have each other. 🙂
