    I don’t think I did, because I never had the chance. My Fiance proposed after we’d been together for three months. It was the most natural thing in the world to us!

    We started dating my senior year of college – and kept dating 4 1/2 years before he finally proposed. I went to law school and didn’t get too antsy about it until my last year of school and my first year working because I was ready and knew I was moving back to be with him. I totally understand though how hard it can be to watch friends (especially those who’ve been dating a shorter amount of time) get engaged. Push through. Looking back, this is the right time for us to get married – we weren’t ready earlier (even though I certainly thought I was).

    He proposed after almost 6 years of dating.  I’ve never been really antsy, we talked about it and knew it would happen at some point in the future.  He totally surprised me with it, but we are definitely ready to start official married life after all this time. 

    Lately I’ve been thinking back to early in our relationship- it is an amazing thing to see how it has evolved and how we have both grown in it.  I can’t wait to see how it continues!

    He proposed on our second anniversary. Before we knew we’d get married but it didn’t feel urgent.

    10 years!

    we’ve been together since high school so i wasn’t even “antsy” until after 8 years or so… we both needed some time to grow up and get our careers in full gear!

    8 years. I got antsy around 6 years, then calmed down, and then got antsy again a few months before he proposed.

    We dated 4 years before the proposal…but we’re planning a 2 year engagement, so it will be 6 before the wedding!
