    I also knew right away this was a different relationship than any other I'd had. DB and I are kind of in the same limbo as you, OP -- we've been together a bit over a year and have talked marriage, but with him deploying very shortly, we're holding off on making any concrete plans. We agreed that we wanted to be sure that we got through deployment first. I'm sure we will, and I think once we're over that hurdle, we'll be getting engaged.

    We said "I love you" very quickly (I said it first about 1.5 months in, and he returned it the same night about eight hours later). We first started talking about a life together about seven months into the relationship. I am about 99.9% certain he's the man I'm marrying -- his mind is obviously more preoccupied with going overseas right now, which is totally acceptable and more than fine. We'll have time to sort our own stuff out after he comes back.

    DF and I just instantly knew. At the end of our first date I already felt so close and comfortable with him which is very unusual for me. Anytime we went out of town or were with people who didn't know us they all assumed we were married or engaged and we constantly joked about it. One day we were leaving his house to go to dinner and I was following him out the door, laughing at something he had said. He turned around, got the cutest smile and said "you know what? I really am going to marry you someday"

    Now here we are, planning a wedding for this summer!

    DH and I started dating the very end of our high school freshman year. At first I had no interest in him and didn't want to date him, but I gave him a chance. I was even going to break up with him cause over the summer he would only call me once a week saying 'hey you wanna go to the movies?' I thought it was odd that he only called me for that. Turns out he worked with his step father doing land scaping 6 days a week and only had Sunday available. Three months later he went as my date to my dad and step mom's wedding and right before he left he said I love you. I said it back. Even though we only saw each other about two to three times a month that summer our feelings just quickly grew. We talked about getting married and starting a family but were in high school. After 4 1/2 years he proposed and then married two days after our 6 year anniversary. So for not being interested in him, it all worked out!

    I met my [now] DH in 2006. We were exclusive from the first date.

    I moved in to his apartment in 2008 and then he left on his first deployment. When he was away we started talking a lot about marriage and I really thought he would propose on our 3 year dating anniversary in Rome on R&R...he didn't

    He proposed in 2010 and we got married in 2011

    Our 5 year wedding anniversary is tomorrow
