so all this talk about rings and diamonds--but i wonder what people think about getting engaged at all. my bf and i have been together for almost a year, and we just passed the 1 yr anniversary of when we met. it was at an event, and i kinda thought for a few months leading up to it that he might propose there, but he didn't. we're a little older (mid 30s) and i'm thinking that waiting forever is just silly. what do you guys think? how long minimum should a couple be together before getting engaged and when do you think is together too long to not be cool anymore to not have popped the question?
