    7 years. We met in school when we were 21, got married at 28. In the time between, I finished my degree and got a career going, he finished his degree, moved to another state, we dated long distance for a couple years, he earned his master’s degree, he moved back, we lived together for six months, then he proposed.

    Meet my guy on line in April 2012, talked on line and texted with phone calls until we finally met in August 2012, he is now planning to propose marriage this Thanksgiving with all of his family present (he bought a ring).  We are not young kids in our twenties either so that may be the differnece.  We both know what we are looking for and we love each other and it’s more than sexual since we live over 1,000 miles apart from each other. Sometimes you just know when that person is the right one for you.  There are NO rules for when is the right time to do anything.  There is NO book or format you have to follow only your heart.  Life for all of us come arounds ONCE take a chance and say yes don’t live with regret or wonder.  We will be married on 12/21/12 at 1 pm a lucky set of numbers if you ask me.


    Good luck

    2 years and 3 months / I think it would’ve been our 2 year anni but we were fighting like cats & dogs around that time and I don’t think either of us wanted to even think about that. Things calmed down and he asked a few weeks later.

    We have been dating nearly 8.5 years and we are not engaged… I really don’t expect it anytime soon either since I am in med school and I have expensive taste which I think is hindering him from buying a ring he thinks I will not like. I am sure when it happens it will be perfect 🙂
