    He said he loved me in the February and proposed that December, so 10 months!

    It took him a year and seven months from “I love you” to “Will you marry me?” but we bought a house together five months after “I love you” and picked our wedding date about two months later.

    And yes, I knew I loved him when he said it but I’m glad I let him say it first. We were pretty much perfect together from the start and were unofficially living together within a couple of months.

    He said “I love you” first around the 6 month mark & we were engaged about a year & a half later!

    I love you: not sure, I’m guessing about 1 month after first date.  Proposal: 10 months after first date.  So about 9 months between I love you & getting engaged.

    RoseDaisyLily:  I fell in love with him really quickly but I didn’t say it until he did, about 5 months into our dating relationship. He proposed about 4.5 years later. It was a hell of a long time and at about the 3 year mark, I told him where I stood, what I wanted and that if he didn’t want to get married, he should tell me so I could move on. At the 4 year mark, I told him I was looking at my exit (which was not a bluff or threat) and he said he was ready to make the move.

    I said I love you first in a drunken moment abour 2 months into the relationship and he said it back. I did not mean it at all but I did not want to take it back and hurt his feelings. I probably really meant it 1 year into our relationship and that is when I thought he was the one. He proposed 4 years into the relationship.

    His first I love you : 1 year 1 month (although he thought he said he loves me in a full conversation, but not specifically using the sentence ‘I love you’, 4 months before the proper one)

    Proposal : 4 months after that! 1 year 5 months of being together. 🙂

    5 years until proposal. I loved him too when he first said it, but I didn’t “know” if he was “the one” at the time. I was 16, so marriage wasn’t anywhere on my radar.

    He said I love you pretty soon into our relationship and then it took about a year after that for him to pop the question.

    4 months to “I love you”, which was so cute because we both were dying to say it and we just looked at each other and blurted it out at the same time!

    5.5 years to proposal, but was partially due to his divorce and child custody battle. We were ready to get proposed around the 1.5-2 year mark.

    I love you was after a month of being together (we worked together so knew eachother for a year or so as friends) however it took just over 3 years for a proposal.
