How Long Did It Take Before You Guys Made It Official?

post #1 of 31
Thread Starter 
Ya know, as in officially a couple - boyfriend/girlfriend?
Who decided or how long was "just talking" taking place before being together?

I'm wondering how soon is too soon to be officially a couple.
I remember in High School if someone liked you and vice versa, you were automatically BF/GF without even knowing their last name. Haha.

Me and my boyfriend knew each other for about 2 years prior to dating, and talked for 6 months before we were "official." lol

I think it was 5 months. lol Neither one of us were looking for a relationship but sooner or later I noticed we were acting like a couple when werent even trying to go in that direction. So I asked and I think we both agreed to make it official.

for me, within a few weeks -I would have 'the talk' with them about whether we were exclusive, or whether we were dating.

Usually a few weeks, get the feel for how things are between you and if it's going anywhere, then the talk, then I know

I always had a 3-month rule. I´d go out with someone for about 2-3 months before even considering calling them my boyfriend. That´s just my experience...the minute you actually call a guy your boyfriend it means a lot more, and being dumped hurts a ton more. So, the guy ends up your ex-boyfriend instead of "this guy I used to go out with"

It took us like 2 months to officially say it. We started hanging out around the middle of December, and kind of made it official on Valentine's Day.

We were friends first and then we started hanging our more and talking more so then maybe two months we decided were boyfriend and girlfriend. No misunderstandings here

Re: How Long Did It Take Before You Guys Made It Official?

Well when I first met my boyfriend he was still with his girlfriend but was trying to get out of the relationship, except she just wouldn't go. Then he met me and we flirted and stuff, kissed (I thought he was single) and had a date before Christmas '07. Then in late Jan '08 we started seeing each other and it was official from the word go really as we both felt more than just an attraction to one another...

i think it depends on the people.

i have only had 2 boyfriends so i may not be the best person to ask. with the first one it was about 2 weeks, where as with the current boyfriend we dated for a month before making it official

Re: How Long Did It Take Before You Guys Made It Official?

I may be in the minority when I say we weren't like the best of friends at first. It was like a month where we started to really like each other, and one day, it just clicked and that same day we were together. Still together.

It's different for everyone.

Re: How Long Did It Take Before You Guys Made It Official?

Well, it wasnt official (I think it was probably before 6 months. since neither dated others, and we moved it along fast). But we went to a work party after around 6 months together and he kept introducing me as his girlfriend. Now we are engaged, live together, and have been together over 7 years. Crazy.

Re: How Long Did It Take Before You Guys Made It Official?

Since I met my hub online, I would have to say we had a couple of months of online flirting, chatting, webcamming and phone calls. After awhile it was clearly apparent that we were crazy about each other and we moved in together. So probably 6 months total before we were "us" hehe. 9 years later we are still together

Re: How Long Did It Take Before You Guys Made It Official?

We made it official in a matter of minutes, well after we said we wanted to be together as a bf/gf lol, but it only took like a week for that, and then 7 months to get married, woot!

I knew my boyfriend for almost 2 years before we started dating...I knew we were together when he kissed me but I eventually made him ask officially but we went facebook official a month after just cause I wanted to make sure we were gonna last more then a couple weeks
post #24 of 31

It was like half a yr before he accepted me as his gf, as he was in the process of getting divorced with his ex wife

We were both getting out of 6 year relationships- so neither one of us wanted to hurry or have a label- we just wanted to have fun.... We're still having fun 7 years later ( been married for 2 years). I think it took around 9 months til I considered him my BF. oh how time flys...

It just somehow happened naturally, because we ended up spending most of our time together. The first time we kissed was when we both officially accepted that we're a couple now.

Right away. It was love at first sight. We just knew we were meant to be. We met 2004 of july and married in 2006 of July.Been happily married ever since.
post #29 of 31
Me and my man knew each other for about 2 or 3 years before we started getting close and once we started talking about how we felt about each other it was a matter of weeks and we've never looked back but I think only you know when its right to make it official smile.gif

My husband and I were together a month before we bought my engagement ring, and we were married within 11 months of meeting. When you know you know. What's the point of waiting? Life is too short to wait around. :)
