    oh man, my ex and I were together for 3 1/2 years and at that point I realized if he hadn’t asked yet…. it was never gonna happen. BUT that relationship had a lot of dysfunction besides. So so so glad I got out when I did.

    With J, it was like a month into the relationship that he looked at me and was like, “You’re going to marry me, aren’t you?” totally sincere. And I was able to, with all my heart, say yes, because I KNEW it was right. Apparently so did he. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Now we’re just waiting til we’re together again (LDR) this winter to get a ring on my finger and ‘make it official’ (we’re not telling people only because we figure they’d freak out since it all happened so quickly).

    My story is similar to daydreamwanderer (complete with the “people will freak out” LOL). Fiance told me three months into our relationship that he was going to ask me to marry him before the year was out. Two weeks later…!

    Just under four years… but we knew we would get married one day just as soon as we started dating. It was the right time for us! ๐Ÿ™‚

    We dated 2 years 9 months before he popped the question.  Our engagement will be 18 months long.  By the time we tie the knot, we’ll have been together 4 years, 3 months.  ๐Ÿ™‚

    3 and a half years to the day. But we started talking about it after 2 and a half years. Serious talking. The waiting and knowing that he was the man I wanted to have next to me for the rest of my life was the longest wait ever!

    I marked 1-3 years because our 3 year anniversary will be in Feb 2010, and I am 99.9% sure he’ll propose before then. 

    Our story was a bit different, we definitely didn’t “know” on the first date or the first month or even the first year! We took things slow. We had both gotten out of super serious relationships just a few months before we met. I’d been with a guy I thought I’d marry for 5 years, and he’d been engaged. Needless to say we were NOT looking for a spouse when we started dating. Add to that, I was still in school, and I had a real need to get a job and prove to myself I could take care of myself without some guy paying my way. But, we loved each other and we had a great time together so we just stayed together. Soon after the 2 year mark everything changed. I felt really stable and happy with myself for the first time in my life. Things were going well at his job. Things with us were still great. At that point it became really clear that we were going to get married. Our theoretical talks about the future became more like plans. Not long after he started ring shopping. I know he has a ring picked, and now I wait ๐Ÿ™‚

    I feel like I’ve gotten some slack from my family because we didn’t have a story-book whirlwind romance where we both “knew” early on… but I don’t think love happens in just one way. Our way worked for us.

    We’re right now officially one year ten months.  He’d better hand it over before the 2 year mark which is 2 days after Christmas of being an official couple and the official anniversary.
