1. I’m 24 and he’s 27 and we’ve been together 2 and a half years.

2. The first time I time I got my hopes up about a proposal was my birthday in 2009 but I only started REALLY waiting when we started ring shopping in late summer/fall.

3. My age has a little to do with it, I want children young.. but a large part is also his age. He is just now realizing that he’s getting older and kids are still a few years out for us if we got the wedding show on the road now. Plus we bought a home together almost a year ago.. we are pretty much living as a married couple already.

I am 22 and have been with my boyfriend for almost 3 years now. I guess I started really waiting about a year ago, when we got an apartment together because we had a serious talk before hand and agreed that we both see this going on for the long run, or else I wouldn’t have gotten a place with him. My age has nothing to do with me wanting to be engaged/married, in fact it’s only knowing that we’re pretty young still that is keeping me sane while waiting. We have plenty of time to spend the rest of our lives together 🙂

1. We’re both 24 (he’s 3 months older)

2. I started “waiting” about 6 months ago.

3. Age doesn’t really have to do with wanting to marry him for me. I would like to have kids by the time I’m 30 and he’s aware of that. I did feel a bit “rushy” a couple months ago but I’m much more relaxed about it now. He’s not ready and I can wait. We have a great relationship so Idk why I was so insane about it earlier lol.

@BritBee: It’s not ridiculous–I totally feel the same way. There’s a lot of things I would have done by now if I wasn’t with him: bought a house, gotten a dog, maybe moved for my job. 

I put a lot of these things on hold for him, and it’s like–when is he going to make this decision so we can move on to other ones and I can take my life off pause?

I’ll play

I’m 22, my Fiance is 26, we’ve been together for nearly 2 years, and I’ve been waiting since our one year.  I knew he was the one when I first saw him, (that’s a story that I don’t think anyone will believe but me and him, lol)  He’s helped me so much to accomplish my goals, and when we are married many of our 5 year goals will be complete. 🙂

@Taylor4: I guess I just mean its ridiculous because I haven’t really put anything on hold for him or sacrificed anything. Its only now, as the big 3-0 looms and I know we both want to start a family and it appears to me that he is not doing anything about us getting engaged.. that I am starting to feel frustrated.. he knows all this, I just have to wait, but man that is the hardest part!!! I would like to disappear into time capsule for a few months and then come back again having got myself further down the waiting line. I think the thing is he’s promised we will get MARRIED this year and I just freak out about how where and when, when he hasn’t even asked me yet.. time is ticking away and I feel like my life is on hold..

1. I’m 29 (30 next month – eek!) and he is 31.  We’ve been together a little over 2 and a half years.

2.  I’ve been waiting for over a year now, and officially since August when he graduated (before he proposed he said he wanted to finish his PhD and find a job first)

3.  My age did and didn’t have anything really to do with it.  I mean, I am aware of the fact that by the time we are actually married I will be 31, and I don’t want to start trying for kids until our marriage is official.  I do feel some of the biological clock ticking, but for the most part I know he wants kids too and I don’t think we’ll wait too long after getting married.

I am 23, soon to be 24 (so excited!!!) and I’ve been with my SO for 1 year 8 months.

I started waiting at the year and a half mark…I think. It was never very clear.

My age had nothing to do with me wanting to get married. It had everything to do with meeting someone I could really see myself being with for the rest of my life, someone who I was compatible with on almost every level.

I’m 29, and we’ve been together 1.5 years. I guess I started waiting a little after a year- that’s when I felt certain that I was ready.


I think my age plays a role for 2 reasons: 1. I had a lot of time to date around before we got together. I think this experience made it easier for me to know for sure that SO is the one. 2. I do want to start having children relatively soon, so I’m definitely more in a rush to get started than I would have been at 25.

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO?

I’m 21 my SO is 24, we have been together for over 3 years and friends for over 5.

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal?

I have been “in waiting” for about 6 months.

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon?

No, I am still young but I know I have found the one and can’t wait to get married, once I get my degree that is :).

Ok, I’m 25 and bf is 29. Been together for a little over a year now. Friends for about 2 1/2.

Started waiting, well that’s tricky, think I started waiting a couple months in but now I feel like my anxiousness has regressed a little as there are some things I would like to put in place first. ( mainly secure employment for me.)

Age has something to do with it.  I really want us to be settled in and have a family soon, and we’re both not getting any younger. But it’s definitely not the prominent factor.

1. I’m 23 and he is 27. We’ve been together for 5.5 years.

2. This is tough to answer… I told him he couldn’t propose until May, so I’m not sure if I’m officially waiting. But I guess I’ve been waiting because I’ve been ready to marry him for about 1.5 years.

3. Not at all. It’s mostly that we’re at a stage in our lives that it makes sense. I want to live with him and see him everyday. Our careers are set, and our lives are moving forward. If these things weren’t in place, I wouldn’t be waiting.

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO?

29, soon to be 30 in April (YAH!) and he’s 32 til June

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal?

A few months in, after he brought the subject up

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon?

Nope. It used to, but now I have other things on my plate, so it’s not the top thing. Plus, I am embracing the big 3-0, not dreading it. 🙂

1. How old are you and how long have you been with your SO? I’m 23 I’ll be 24 this year and my SO is 29 he’ll be 30.  We have been togeter for over three and a half years.  It’ll be four this year.

2. When did you start waiting for a proposal?  I started waiting for a proposal I guess last year when it was more of a reality.  Although I think it won’t be anytime this year but next year is a good possibility.

3. Did your age have anything to do with you wanting to get married soon?  No I think just knowing I wanted to spend the rest of my life with him did.  Also knowing that I’m almost done with school started to put things in perspective for me.  Although it might have some affect on him seeing how he is turning the bigh 30 this year.  He wanted to have kids and be married when he was 24/25 so hopefully he’ll get a kick in the butt soon.
