As a rough rule, two months should be a safe amount of time to broach the subject. But every relationship is different, so if it feels right earlier, go for it. If it doesnt feel right at that stage, there are a few steps you can take to build yourself up for the conversation.
How long should you wait before committing a relationship?
Americans tend to say the earliest a person should say this to their partner is when theyve been dating for one to three months (19%), or perhaps even longer, four to six months (18%). Fewer think the earliest appropriate time to say it is seven to nine months in (6%) or 10 to 12 months into the relationship (7%).
How long is too long to date without getting engaged?
According to recent data, most couples date for two or more years before getting engaged, with many dating anywhere from two to five years. Once the question is popped, the average length of engagement is between 12 and 18 months.
