If you're madly in love, how long do you have to wait before you pop the question?  And how long is TOO long?  Over 7,500 people recently took a poll.  Here's what they said...

1.  Less than 6 months of dating . . . only 2% said it's okay.  98% said that's too early.

2.  6 to 12 months . . . 18% said that's the right amount of time.

3.  12 to 18 months . . . 20% said it's a good amount of time, making it the #1 answer.

4.  18 to 24 months . . . 15%.

5.  2 to 3 years . . . 15%.

6.  3 to 4 years . . . only 4%.

7.  4 to 5 years . . . just 2%.

8.  More than 5 years . . . also 2%.

22% said they weren't sure what the right amount of time is.

And here's one more surprising stat:  Apparently women are a little more gun-shy about getting engaged than men are.  23% of men said you should propose within the first year of dating, compared to 18% of women.
