How did he propose?
It was the evening of my birthday, and he'd yet to give me a gift. So, of course, I thought he'd procrastinated buying my birthday present and that I wasn't going to get a gift that day. Then just before we were leaving our apartment for dinner at our favorite restaurant, he brought out a little box, and proposed! (My reaction, which I will never live down: "Are you SERIOUS?")
How long were you dating before you got engaged?
We'd been together for six years (since we were in high school, in fact).
How long was the engagement?
Two years, while he finished school and we planned and saved!
