    Depends how old you are. Two years into the relationship is about minimum in my opinion, but I'd want to be at least 21 when I did it.

    19, just turned, she's 19 in two months.

    Generally a really good relationship, but it's an LDR.

    I'm thinking when we move/live closer together. :dontknow:

    There isn't some arbitrary length of time after which you should propose; it depends on the relationship.
    Once you genuinely know the person and see yourself spending the rest of your lives together. Whenever that is.

    Ermm... well at the moment, a lot of my friends are getting engaged (well 2 of them, and I'm 21), and my knee jerk reaction was the "I wanna be engaged" thought. Then I thought of being my boyfriends WIFE and that freaked me out a bit.

    To be engaged, just make sure you have the maturity to be married to someone. It's a lot harder to get out of a relationship when you're married... and you have to be there for your wife and support her. I would say wait until you've lived together for a while.

    How long before SingleMuslimDotCom is banned for being a spammer?

    You guys must be desperate over there to have to resort to spamming student forums.

    I'd say propose either on a random day or an anniversary. If you do it on a birthday and she says no... every birthday after you/she will be reminded. Bad times.

    You can propose anytime when you feel the right time.
    Just choose wisely for gf/bf first.
