    He proposed to me 2 days before our 1 year anniversary. It felt like it was the most natural thing in the world!! πŸ™‚

    He proposed after eight months.  I know it sounds quick, but I was antsy around seven because he was acting all mysterious when we were in NYC for New Year’s and I thought he was going to to do it then.  He didn’t and I was disappointed πŸ™

    However, a little over a month later he proposed on Valentine’s day!  Yay!

    Well, he didn’t propose, but we decided to get married a little less than 3 years from when we officially started dating and 3.5 years after we met.

    oh my goodness! I feel like I’m crazy… we got engaged 6 months after we started dating, but we definitely have a good reason haha.

    I was living in NY at the time, and in July of ’09 I told him I wanted to move to MN (my  home-state) around Christmas-time. This broke his heart because he thought I’d be in NY forever, and we’d only be together for about 4 months.

    So in September of ’09, on our 6-month anniversary, he proposed! I don’t think he would have done it so soon if I hadn’t told him I was moving away.

    Now he’s moving here and we’ll live here!

    I am so happy we got engaged when we did and I don’t really think it was too soon, it felt right. And my parents and family absolutely adore him. Which is amazing!!

    We were together for about 9 months before he proposed and everyone thought we were crazy, but we knew we wanted a longer engagement and we knew within the first month of dating that we wanted to wake up next to each other everyday for the rest of our lives.

    A couple months before our 6 year anniversary. I don’t think I got antsy until about the 5th year.

    Love that everyone has been waiting as long as me (6 years)! We are high school sweethearts though so we wanted to do the career thing before the wedding. Now I have my man and a fabulous future ahead…..this is the way to do it girls πŸ™‚

    We were together 4.5 years before we got engaged – I had the “itch” probably around 3.5-4 years.

    We were together a little over 4.5 years. I didn’t start to get antsy until one of my friends got engaged after dating her bf for about a year. I didn’t know this at the time, but my fiance had already bought my ring before they got engaged and he was waiting for my birthday to propose.

    We were together 2 months shy of our 5 year anniversary. He was planning on a Christmas or New Years proposal but couldn’t wait once he showed my parents the ring. We are getting married in June of this year!

    I kinda “forced” him into it. I decided not to go into the Navy because of him and told him that I needed some kind of commitment so I knew that it wasn’t a bit of a fling. We’d already been together for 2 1/2 years and we’d known each other for longer. We made up for it by having a long engagement instead haha! Engaged since December 2009.
