How long should I date a girl before proposing?
If you made your investigations beforehand and you know that she’s a healthy girl, and now you’ve dated her a few times and you think that everything is in order, then there’s no reason to wait too long. You can’t wait too long because somebody else might take her away from you. That happens. Yes, I’ve seen that happen.
Or, even worse, she might discover who you really are! And therefore, while the illusion is still going on, make sure to grab the opportunity.
