    We said “I love you” a couple months into dating, my now-husband told me I was going to marry him shortly after, he proposed on our 1 year anniversary, and we were married less than a year after that.

    i picked “other” because we were in love in a matter of weeks; moved in together within 6 months; will be engaged after just over 2 years (coming soon!); and will be married after about 3.5 years

    My fiance and I never had issues talking about serious subjects. I’m a pretty forward person. I make friends easily but I don’t let people in easily. I’ve always been very picky in dating and I tended to run before things had a chance a lot. When I met my fiance, we just both were very straight forward in how we saw our lives going, what we wanted, and what we felt about serious subjects. We talked about subjects in the first weeks of knowing each other that a lot of couples I’ve seen haven’t for several years. There’s nothing wrong with that if it works for your relationship…but for me, I need to know everything up front lol so it definetely gave me a lot of respect for him that he wasn’t taken back by that.

    We probably were dating three months I think…when he pushed me into a store to see what sort of rings I was into. I wasn’t into anything so we looked online for fun for awhile together. We talked of marriage a lot and we had a clear idea that one day we wanted that for us. However, we were more focused on buying a house at the time. For what should of taken a couple months…turned into much longer…as most in the house buying process know. We finally found the right house in the summer of this year and closed on it on my birthday. After moving in, the flood gates opened and looking into rings was back in full force. By that time we had been together over a year. We’ve had bumps in the custom process and had to switch jewelers. I’m hoping we’ll have the ring done by early january and I know he won’t be able to wait long after it being done. That will be a year and seven ish months we’ve been together.

    We already chose a date for 11/20/16. We’re going to visit his family in February to announce. Trying to save as much as we can for the wedding so we’ll be making a 14 hour drive instead of flying. It’ll be a fun big road trip I think though. I’ll annouce to my family before the trip at a lunch outing. So hopefully all goes well. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the life we have and are building together. I love the person he is and the person he makes me want to be. So yay cheesy feelings.

    Actually I met him when I was 14 had a crush and moved on. Then we met again as adults, I said I didn’t want a relationship. He said he’d wear me down. Four months later I said we could be exclusive. He said still he’d wear me down haha.  And the son of a bitch did. We are getting married next October. lol I was once bitten twice (more like a million times) shy when it came to men and dating. But couldn’t be happier now!

    We were together 8 years before getting married. 

    We knew we were in love after a few months.  We basically lived together since the beginning of our relationship, and always talked about getting married “one day”.  We both wanted to be finished with college, have stable careers, and be able to afford the honeymoon we wanted before we got married.  We didn’t want to expect my parents or anyone else to pay for our wedding.  At about the 6 year mark, we discussed a timeline for getting married because we both were approaching 30 and wanted to start a family soon too.  He proposed later that year, and we got married 9 months later. 

    I will say this, even though I knew a proposal was coming eventually, there were definitely times when waiting drove me crazy.  I wanted so badly to be married, have a house, and start a family, that I began to feel like it was NEVER going to happen.  I was depressed and let it interfere with living in the present.  We ended up closing on a house the day before our wedding, and we didn’t even originally plan to start house hunting until after the wedding.  If I could give my old self one piece of waiting advice, it would be that everything will work out somehow, and to enjoy the present moments now.

    Our story was a little more like:

    In love after a few weeks. Engaged after 2.5 years. Married shortly before 4 years and now together for almost 6 years ๐Ÿ™‚ We waited until I was done with college to get engaged because that was the next step we wanted to take before we moved in together.

    I also do not fall into any of these categories. Love at first sight for both of us, but waited about 4 years for engagement and married after being together a total of 5 years.

    I voted Other. I realized I loved my Fiance after 3 weeks of dating (although after our first date I had a feeling this was the start of something special but I had no idea it was THIS special haha) We started talking about marriage after 3 months but waited to get engaged until after 1.5 years together. We will marry just a few days shy of our 4 year anniversary. A long engagement felt right & I feel 4 years is a good time for us.

    We fell in love at first sight but neither of us were in a place to get married right away. I knew my Fiance was the one and he says he felt the same, but it took us 6 years to get engaged. We had school, family issues, etc. things that needed to be resolved and/or finished before we could take the next step.

    We met in April, said our first “I love yous” sometime in July… I knew by Christmas he was the one I wanted to spend my life with. We dated 5 years before buying our first house, and he proposed a few months later. We will have been together 6 1/2 years when we get married next fall ๐Ÿ™‚

    I selected other.

    I knew within a month of us dating that he was “the one”, and although my love any have still been an infatuation… everything was good. I remember walking through a grocery store with him, and just laughing/talking like we had known each other for years – and almost at the same time, we both said that to one another. Things were just comfortable/easy.

    We dated for a little over 3 years before we got enaged, and then got married a month shy of our 4-year dating anniversary. We could have been engaged/married sooner, but I waited another year to move in with him after he originally brought it up.

    But, it all worked out!

    justinsgirl2016:  LOL I didn’t even know timelines existed!  I also thought I was the only one in the waiting phase HAHA.  I am so glad I didn’t discover the Weddingbee while I was dating my Darling Husband.  We would have had so many problems because of this site.
