Don’t know if this topic has been broached on the boards before, if so, I’d love to bee pointed in the right direction 🙂
For all us ladies in waiting, how long were you with Mr.(or Ms.) SO before rings started making guests appearances in your day dreams and you hit the point of ohmygodIwanttobeengagedrightnowifnotsooner!
The boy and I were together two years when I first felt the tickle, but it wasn’t until our 4 year anniversary that I got super itchy…. Though that could have to do with the fact that we attended 12 weddings in the past year…
I know there’s a poll on this concerning hive honeys in their late 20’s, so maybe age dictates more than the length of the relationship?
How old are you and how long were you together before you wanted (needed!) to be engaged?

For me it was January 09—the three year and 7 month mark! Whew and we made it to our four-year anniversary and BAM still RINGLASS!

- Wedding: March 2010 - Calamigos Ranch
We dated for 2 years before I found myself dying to plan our wedding. 😉 We’d had a timeline from early on where we’d get engaged after 3.5 years (graduate school makes saving for a ring/paying for a wedding/timing a wedding and honeymoon difficult, and we wanted to do it up big…ish!), but I was so ready at 2 years that we decided not to wait so long. 😉 We were finally financially and emotionally in the right place at 2y, 9mo. (I was 27, he was 28.)

We got together when we were 21 – I started to itch a little around the 4 year mark but it wasn’t until the 5 year mark that I started getting engagement brain!
It took 8 months after that to get the ring – we are now both 26!

Is a month too soon? hehehe. For serious, I think I started to get the itch when the oldest of his two younger sisters got married a little over two years ago. Now that, um, ALLLL of our friends are or have gotten married, I can’t stop scratching! Haven’t found any relief yet, though…

He got the itch a month into dating. I didn’t really get it until we’d been together a year and a half. Now I wish he had the itch to start PLANNING!!!

Honestly I didn’t think we’d be engaged for another year or so! Needless to say I was very suprised and I’m very Happy:)

I have had the itch for about 2 months and we have been together 3 years. Its so difficult, people keep saying to enjoy this time, but I am finding it very difficult lol.

I’m 28 and he’s 31. He got the itch a month into the relationship. I got it about 3 months later.

Hmmmm I think I always knew something was special about him. I got the itch six months in then I didn’t anymore then after a year it started back up. Now we are 16 months in and I think we have another year or year and a half until we are engaged…

I would say it took myself about 9 months, him 6 months. We knew from the beginning 🙂
