We were together for 6 months and 22 days when he proposed.  I knew he was the one on day # 6.  He states that he knew I was the one for him after two months.  Yes, I’m 30 and have had multiple relationships some lasting for years.  However with my Fiance it was just completely different.

Girls, if you don’t wanna wait, why don’t you propose? This is the 21st century and completely acceptable.

@thediamondguy:  

Sheesh. Is that what happened in your relationship, diamondguy? Really?

In my experience, men who aren’t ready to get married don’t propose. I tried being the initiator and aggressor in a relationship with a man. He was always agreeable. And then one day he just backed out claiming he wasn’t ready.

I’ve seen it happen to other women as well who act as the initiators re the proposal. My neice who was with her boyfriend for 6 years let him know she was ready to get married and was going to move on if he wasn’t. He agreed and then backed out 2 days before the wedding.

I consider myself a feminist. I’m also 39 years old and am getting married for the first time in 2 months. So I’ve dated a lot. I’ve lived with a few men in my time as well. This comes from many years of experience dating a variety of men.

Before my fiance proposed, I told him straight out that I was ready to get married to him. He seem to take that in, but after 6 months, he still hadn’t proposed. I started to prod him and one day he said, “You’re immasculating me. Leave me alone about it for awhile.”

So I stopped. Then, three months later, he proposed.

It only took him 3.5 months to propose but he had the ring a month before he did… He said he knew much early than that but he wanted to make sure that I was as sure as he was..Which I was… We are getting married in a little less than a year!

We have been friends since 2000; it was a friendship that developed to love.  Here we are 12 years later.  We’ve been best friends for many years, together for 5 and getting ready to be married in December.  It’s been one awesome ride!  I would not have traded our route getting here for anything else.

Approximately 3 years. And he took me by surprise since whenever we talked he wasn’t that into marriage and it’s not that important to me. I told him that I would’ve been with him till the end even without the ring.
