    We waited two months… I am surprised we lasted that long we had a very strong and intense inital attraction… which we still have!

    We waited 2.5 months.  I was my first time so I certainly didn’t want to rush anything.

    We waited 2 weeks. We didnt really date, we just hung out. our whole relationship was rushed i guess you could say. only a month and we had a apratment together. and a year later we were engaged.

    Yeah ours didn’t start the best either for something meant to be longterm. Ours first was the same night that I broke up with my ex… And about 4 months before we actually started dating…

    Hah, ohhh about a week. But in my defense, our first date lasted 8 hours, and we went out 5 out of the 7 nights that week. It was like we waited 6 dates, right? 😉

    3ish months. We didn’t have an exact day we were dating so that’s why it’s ‘ish’ at the end.

    DH was my first boyfriend and i was 17 when we first started dating so my response is a little longer than most…but it was 9 months

    7th date; 2 weeks.  I’ll never forget walking into his bedroom and seeing that he’d put new red satin sheets on his bed.  I tried not to laugh hysterically but wasn’t good at hiding it.  But I pretty much ate him alive, praying mantis style.

    We had known each other 3 months, but it was on our first “real” date :/  Our relationship was fuzzy at the time, so our anniversary is the day of our first date… that neither of us thought of as a date at the time haha.  If I could go back I would not have rushed into things that easily, but obviously it all worked out.

    We dated 5 years before we got engaged. We finally did it at 5 years 10 months, about 7 months prior to our wedding. I planned on waiting until marriage but the timing just felt right.

    I accidently voted 3-5 years should have been 5-7 years
