We dated for 2 years before I found myself dying to plan our wedding. πŸ˜‰ 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. πŸ˜‰ 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…
