@alohakay:  My bf (now fiance) and I were dating for just over 2 years when I moved in. We lived toghether for exactly one year and then he proposed!

We were together for 1.5 years before we moved in together. Then we lived together for 2.5 years, and then we spent most of the next year in a LDR, during which time we got engaged (after 4 years of of being together total). Now we live together again, and we will be married right around our 5-year anniversary ๐Ÿ™‚

I wouldn’t live with him before we got engaged becuase it required me to move 75 miles away from where I was and leave my job, so I made it clear to him SO in answer to your question we dated almost 2 years before we became engaged.

Almost 4 years?  We had talked about getting married before then, but due to deaths in the family (both of our fathers) things got postponed.  We moved in together after less than 2 months though.

We moved in together after about 5 months because we both moved right across the country and it made sense money-wise for us to live together. We then dated for 4 more years before getting engaged.

9 months… but we started talking about engagement about 6 months in.  We also moved in together after having dated for about 3 or 4 years, so I definitely felt like it was about time, and after moving in together, engagement was the next step.

@alohakay:  We aren’t engaged yet, but have already been living together for a year. It will probably be 1 year and 2 months ๐Ÿ™‚
