Getting engaged after 6 months of dating
Besides, I was working crazy hours and had no time to go out on dates anyway.But over a few glasses of wine one night, my friend convinced me that I needed to meet someone and go out, so I signed up for Bumble. A big part of the reason that I swiped his profile was because we had so many friends in common [Bumble connects you through Facebook friends].At the time, I lived in this condo that had gable fences, and when he picked me up, he said it was like a fairy tale.He was like, "You waved out of your window on the second story and then you came running out of this iron gate." I just remember seeing him and being relieved that he actually looked like his pictures! Our first few dates after that, we were spending three to four hours just talking.I thought he was attractive, obviously, and I could also tell from his pictures he loved to travel, which is something I love too.
If you expect your marriage to be otherwise, you’ve got a big surprise waiting for you.“The fact of a couple moving quickly toward marriage is not in and of itself a problem as much as what is driving the speed.A busy schedule and a string of dead-end dates left Jenn, 26, less than enthused about her nonexistent dating life. In August, the Jacksonville, Florida, couple were engaged.But at a friend’s suggestion (read: peer pressure and wine), she caved and created a Bumble account. Here, Jenn shares the sweet story behind their zero-to-60 relationship.If a couple is still finding lots of reasons not to marry after four or more years, then that’s usually because they’re subconsciously picking up on problems or even thinking that they themselves aren’t suitable for marriage, ever.”Makes perfect sense to me.Which is why I’m going to double down on my theory that you shouldn’t get engaged before at least two years (like most couples already do) and you shouldn’t marry when you’re caught up in those giddy feelings.
