As long as it takes to make the decision that you can't live without them.

For me, about six months to one year, or when both have found the right chemestry for each other, both have accepted each others characteristics, likes/ dislikes, faith, visions in life, and both love each other and are ready to face challenges in life together, then, both are ready for the next level of the relationship which is engagement.

Probably when the time feels right. We all have our own internal clock and it will have to be a mutual agreement. Putting more pressure on one side only eventually will turn into a possible disaster.

I must have spent too much time gardening, and reading germination instructions, none of which say, 'the plants germinate when it feels right,' though that seems to be true in a relationship, I wonder if maxim or cosmo gave me the time lapse numbers about all of this, silly quizzes.
