Married/Engaged People How long did you date?

How long did you date your significant other before you became engaged?

OR

If you aren't married/engaged what's the longest you've dated and had it end up not working out?

One date, about four hours. It just didn't work out. She told me that I am like a robot because I am emotionless. I don't really know what she meant by that but it sounded like a compliment, anyways we never went out again after that. I almost made out with her but then the cab showed up and we had to go. If that cab driver would have taken a few more minutes maybe I could have made out with her and then the date would have turned out differently.

My wife and I dated for 4 years before getting engaged. I think I was 16 when we started dating. More than half my life ago..

I knew my first wife for 5 years before we were married. Dated etc for a year or so. Marriage lasted 16 years. Should have been over in the first year.

I knew my second wife for 14 years before we married. Not sure we really dated. We worked together for 7 years, carpooled for a year. Still married after 18 years.

It takes the ladies a while to determine my worth or to just get used to me. I'm sure I am worth the wait. Relationships are complicated and should take time to gel.

We met in 1988, probably moved in together in 1989, and got married in 1991.

This June is 20 years married!

I think we met in 1971. We were married in 1973. Our 38th anniversary is next Thursday. Should I buy her that card, "welcome to Dumpsville, population you?" Maybe that doesn't express the right sentiment. I think I'll just buy her some flowers and take her to dinner...or a pit bull fight.

what does it mean when they say: why buy the cow when you get the milk for free?

That was a propaganda statement made by a covert republican cheese producing corporation.

We met through an online matchmaking service called OneAndOnly.com. It's gone now but we're still together. That was late 1998. Emails followed by phone calls, then our first date on 2/13/99. We got engaged on 9/9/99. Wanting an easy-to-remember anniversary, we got married on 7/1/00. Still going strong!

First date 31/12/94 married 19/7/00 couldn't be happier. All you have to do is wait until the right person comes along - it doesn't work if you try and change the person you are with into the right person.

I think shortest length relationships would be more fun. I dated a girl for 2 days before, REALLY weren't right for each other, polar opposites. She's a cool person though, and a good lay

My longest was a bit scandalous, so I'm not sure it counts, since I wasn't technically dating the girl (She already had a boyfriend) WHOOPS! Was about 8+ months though. Good and bad memories, but were still really good friends
