We met back in 2000. Dated, broke up. Dated, broke up. Then got together back 2004-ish and got engaged in 2009.

We dated for 9 years when he proposed, when we get married we will have been together for about 10.5 years!

We dated for 5 years before he proposed. My good friend and her husband dated for 10+ years before they got engaged.

Over 4 years. I’ll be almost 33 when we tie the knot.

@paulajmc4:

Still waiting for a proposal at year 14.5 but your story makes me feel good I can still have hope 🙂  – Thanks, I really needed some hope of that after this past month of less-than-one-year couples getting hitched.

2 years and a couple months into it we were engaged. I feel that he felt pressured to buy a nice ring in order to pop the question so he waited till he could afford it. Though we were practically living together since after the first few months. (We were always sleeping over at each other’s place.) He gets it from his idiot family and friends about getting a ring. NOT ME. I specifically asked NOT to have a ring. I am not a ring person. But he is.

Though with my first relationship, we were together for 11 years. Yep! (We met in h.s.) and even when we were 24-25 years old, he STILL “wasn’t ready”. Then shortly broke up stating religious differences and going nuts after losing a lot of money post recession. Yell It wasn’t like I was pressuring to be engaged. I just asked “So what’s in store for our future? Do you have any plans? I think we should discuss this…” I guess it did not help that we ended up going long-distance for a good amount of those years.

So truly depends on the guy.

I’d known him for a few years before we started dating, but I guess it was about 15 months from our first  ‘date’ to his proposal.
