We've talked about getting married years ago but last year October we decided it was time. We talked about marriage, & he acknowledged me as his "wifey" well before he made the proposal official on this past Christmas Eve, 2007. We started talking in November 06, started dating in March of 07, moved in together officialy in July 07 and proposed on March 07 2008. Friends for about 4 months before,we started dating, we were dating for 2 months and 2 days when he proposed - we knew 2 weeks there was noone else we'd rather be with. By the time we get married (in exactly 1 year) we will have been together for 7 1/2 years. We started dating when I was 16 and he was 18, though! - Aquaintences for a couple years- Dated for 8 months before getting engaged- Will have been a couple for 13 months when he moves in- Will have been together for 2 years and 3 months at the time of the wedding.: ) I've been with my guy now since I was 15 except for about a year and 1/2 when we were 16 and broke up.
He actually said he was READY so it all went down from there. He asked my parents out of respect, and then proposed! So...technically..you just count since we've been back together, it would have been 6 years this past May long (i'm in Canada so it was the weekend of August 16-19).
It’s just that…some stories are more culturally accepted as normal.
We met late in the summer of 2013 at a mutual friend’s BBQ. Going to that wedding with him, made it very clear to me that I was in love with him. I don’t really know how to put our connection into words. I never really dated a guy that had similar interests as me, had similar style to mine, or that would be considered as ‘my type’. There was one thing that really struck me about him… Since we had so many mutual friends, it was the people around who adored him. You’re then in a constant power struggle for the upper hand in the relationship.
When we went on our first date (3 1/2 years ago), L. about a year and a half when he proposed, but we knew each other for three, and then started living with each other right after we got engaged.
we've been engaged for almost two years, and will be getting married just before our 4 year mark. We are both 23 though, so we're young :) I've been seeing someone for about two weeks and he asked me to marry him this past Saturday 10/25/08.
We knew right away, and we don't have any reason to wait. I've been proposed to about 20 something times, engaged once and now I have found the one that will never end and I know that based on compariosons fromt he past and simple life signs and signals.
I wanted to be set in my career first and then I decided to go to law school so we wanted to wait and let me get settled first. We started dating when I was 16 and dated for almost 4 years before he proposed, and have only been engaged for 2 months. We met on Nov 2000 (working together) Our first kiss was Feb 9th 2001 and he proposed March 3rd 2001, barely 3 weeks!!!! Our big wedding is set for Jan 2009, and we are as much in love as we were the first day!!! Jeremy proposed 2 days before our 1 yr anniversary.
Yesterday, my girlfriend received test results from her gyno appointment. We've been dating for 5 months, probably have sex about 3 times a week on average. I believe her when she says she didn't know she had it, else why come clean now.
She apparently requested a full battery of tests, to try and fully ease my mind as we discussed my worries in the past and she was confident she didn't have anything.
As far as I can figure if I want to try and stay with her, perhaps just suggesting we don't have sex while I sort through this is a good approach. Taking the risk of contracting it (assuming I haven't already) is a big risk even if statistically small as women I'd date in the future I'd obviously have to tell assuming I tested positive.
During the first year of my relationship with my life partner (Yes, that's how he's entered in my phone. One of you starts letting negative comments slip about the others friends or family. But it might be slightly less frequent or slightly less adventurous or maybe just a little more "skip the appetizers, get to the main course" if ya know what I mean. But if you both kept your farts to yourself the 6-12 month mark is usually the period of time where you start to bond over your mutual gas and IBS issues. Just as an FYI, my parents have been happily married for 38 years and they are adamantly against ever discussing these things with each other. The spontaneous texts during the work day start to go away. At the beginning of a relationship you're both on your best behavior and at the first sign of conflict, one person usually tries to diffuse the situation as quickly as possible. " When you've hit the one year mark and you've invested enough time into the relationship where you know that one big fight won't equal break-up, then the fights get way more intense. Our pain is usually caused by one of two things: Something you did to us OR because we have nothing to wear. Every so often, you break plans with each other at the last minute to hang out with your friends.
