TWO MONTHS! Lol I think I'm in the minority... We met on eHarmony in January, first date in February, engaged by April. But we were engaged more than 2 years thanks to Covid, so we had plenty of time to back out! hehe We've now been married 8 days
We met in early 2020 and he proposed two days ago on Oct 16, 2021. Both of us are mid-late thirties and have been through this before (I had a broken engagement after college, he's divorced). I was clear to him on our second date that I was looking for a partner that wanted to get married and build a life together. We started talking about getting married about a year ago, moved in together this past summer, met (and adored) each other's families a few months ago. I knew a proposal was coming at some point -- he just did it way sooner than I anticipated
6 1/2 years! But we started dating young, had college and grad school expenses, moving in expenses. Then we wanted to do some traveling and couldn’t have afforded that, a ring and wedding all at the same time and traveling came first for us!
