It was a Friday night and we'd made a date night for dinner and a movie.
That's when shit starts to get real and you can really decide if the person you're dating is the person you want to give the privilege of entering as "life partner" in your phone. This is okay, because you can always go have Thai food with your friends and he can always go see Expendables 3 with his friends. You would rather spend the night at your own apartment than go to the trouble of packing an overnight bag to stay at his place..if it means *yikes* not seeing each other for a night. All women know that guys usually freak out at the first sign of "overly emotional," so we make our best effort to keep our insecurities and panic attacks at bay during those first blissful twelve months (I think I only made it to seven months).
In fact, they tended to divorce quicker than those with short courtships.
Again, there are a couple of reasons why taking too long is a bad sign: It’s not so much that people wait too long to get married, but that they stay in a relationship that never was built to last.
How long did you date your partner before he or she popped the question?
It may have only been months, or perhaps it felt like an eternity.
