    FH and I dated for 11 months before we got engaged. It probably wouldn’t have happened that fast if we hadn’t known each other for three years prior.

    We dated 9.5 years before we got engaged, but we were 14 and 15 when we met. We finished high school and college and we just got engaged last July and aren’t having our wedding until after my fiance finishes his MBA this June. People just have to deal with it πŸ˜‰

    I started dating my Fiance the summer before my senior year in highshool, and he wanted to wait till after I finished college to get engaged.  I finished college up last December and he proposed in June (though he got the ring in January and I knew he had it and wouldn’t shut up).  We were together just shy of 6 years before we got engaged, and we are getting married in October.  We figure our relationship has been long enough that we dont need a year + engagement, 4 months is plenty of time since I already had most of it figured out anyways LOL.

    It’s been 8 years and 2 months for us. We aren’t engaged yet and only just started talking seriously about it in the Past couple months. We’re having a ring made and then he’ll propose to me but it’ll be anither 6 months at least. Good thing I’m patient!

    I’m a newbie, I guess! πŸ™‚ 2 years to the day. We love each other so much though, it feels so right. πŸ™‚ And whatever hurdles come our way, we’ll face them as a team and get through them!

    I should note that we were friends for 2 years before that too. πŸ™‚

    7 years, but we started dating young. We started to get pressure from family about getting engaged after 5 years.

    9 months of dating, with a 9 month engagement. But we’re both around 40yo, and figured there is no reason to wait as we’re both sure it’s meant to be.

    We dated for 6 months then got engaged. Yup πŸ™‚ We’ll be getting married close to being together a year and a half. Not one second thought. I knew quickly on that I wanted to marry this man.
