What is the average time it takes a man to propose?
We determined that the median engagement age in the United States is 27.2 years for women, and 28.7 years for men -- a 1.5 year difference. Furthermore, the median amount of time a couple dates before the proposal is 3.3 years. But as we found, these numbers vary based on where you live.
Why do some guys never propose?
Some guys wont propose because theyre not ready for marriage yet. He isnt stringing you along, hes moving at his own pace and thats good for both of you. Typically, women just plain feel ready for marriage more quickly than the average man. That doesnt mean that men arent thinking about tying the knot.
