    I read you yelling EIGHT like in the scene in the first Sex and the City movie where Charlotte announces to the restaurant that Carrie has gotten engaged after dating for NINE YEARS.

    about a year and a half. I moved in with him 8 mos. into dating. that sounds kind of fast for some people, but as i said in a previous post, we are in our late twenties/early thirties. when you know, you know :)

    Dated for a year and 11 months. Engaged for 17 months.

    My confession was not for anyone here. We have a temp and she asked me about when me met when we got engaged etc. then said "wow that was quick". I just think that is a rude response.
  • edited December 2011
    Really?  I think a year is fairly typical time to get engaged once you are out of "college" time.  

    In my mind from meeting to wedding was 2 ish years.

    8 months. To the day. BUUUTTT- again, we've been friends for 7-ish years. He's been there for me through everything. From planning my first wedding, (yikes, that sounds bad) to my divorce, to being preggers, and all the crap I went through with her father... he's amazing. :)

    Ditto this. After college my time line was date a year, engaged a year. If a 28+ guy doesn't know if he wants to marry me after a year or not/I don't know... chances are he's not the one. I knew about 6 months in DH was the one. When you start dating young though, I see the long relationships before engagement.

    Just under 2 years. And I'm talking like by days. By wedding time, we'll have been engaged for 19 months.

    cmrpsu - oh.my.god. I can't believe one person would say that, let alone more...

    Wow @ Nicole & Cmrpsu.  Some people really have absolutely no tact.

    I mean if you know within that amount of time, then all the power to you.  I knew within a year that Gzilla and I would get married.  I didn't think I was going to have to wait almost 8 years... but if he had asked me a year in, I would have still said yes.
    Paprika: I like it when you burp in my ear. It really turns me on.
