    We’ve been dating for almost four years, we were basically (unofficially) together for almost two years before that, and we just got officially engaged this weekend!

    @katydaisy:  We’d been dating a little over 3 years when I proposed. We’d  each other for 8 years, though.

    We were dating for one year before he proposed….we were talking about it after 3 months while dating but obviously didn’t want to rush. I wasnt expecting a year because he told me 2 years

    He proposed on our 3rd anniversary, after living together for a year and half. It was very much worth the wait.

    He proposed at 1.5 yrs. We both “knew” about 6months in though and talked about marriage and a wedding in a when not if format from there on in. When he proposed I’d been painfully anxiously waiting for it for about 4 months. I was worried he was going to push it off for another year due to something he’d said once. Thankfully I was pleasantly surprised to be wrong lol. We are having a 13 month engagement.

    we dated for 5 years (but lived together for 1.5yrs) – I was never “waiting” to get engaged.  We traveled the world together so the 5yrs really flew by because I was busy enjoying my life

    • Wedding: October 2014 - Legare Waring House

    Just about 9 months after we met and 8 after we started dating.

    We were both in places in our lives where we knew we wanted to be together, but weren’t quite ready to actually be married…so we’ll be engaged about a week and a half shy of 3 years.

    It gets old, but I know we did the right thing for us.

    4.5 years until engagement, 6 years until marriage 🙂

    It seemed like a long time to wait at the time, but I’m glad we got married when we did.  It all turned out to be perfect timing!
