v132722 :  from Aug 2006 to Dec 2014.  It was a long ride, but to be fair (he barely deserves it) we were long distance (I’m talking 1-3000 miles) until 2011.  After that it was his own dumb procrastination, but I can laugh about it now, mostly.

10 days before the 2 year anniversary of our first date.

I knew a few months ahead of time that it was coming (I helped him choose the ring in October after he looked for a few weeks with his mum but couldn’t find the perfect one, and then my mum blabbed that he had asked for their blessing!)

v132722 :  a year and 2 months 😊 pretty quick…mainly because we are older and want to start a family. I was 35 when he proposed and he was 37. We are now about to turn 37 and 39.

v132722 :  We dated for one year, broke up, got back together. 

After that, we dated for 2 years before moving in together, and started discussing marriage. He proposed 2 years after that, so we got engaged after 4 years.

About a week shy of two years. (I’d told him early on that my general timeline was that I wanted to be dating someone for at least 2 years before getting engaged, so he almost made it. He was trying to hold out until our 2-year anniversary but he couldn’t wait any longer.)

10 years to the day! We started dating in high school and both wanted to purchase a house before getting married so that extended the timeline a little bit haha. Getting married this summer and can’t wait!
