May I ask how old you are? Sounds like your 20's. I agree with Drac above, but will add.
My wife and I dated 7 years, more then some marriages, while in college, then engaged for 2 years. We took our time and did it right, neither were wealthy, but we got good jobs, planned our wedding, saved our money, etc.
Let her know you do want to marry her, but you don't want to do it the worng way, that you been working at if for a while now. That you want the perfect wedding for HER.
I proposed to my wife on the ski lift (she couldn't run!) HA
But she was also at the point of Pressuring me like your girlfriend, all our friends were getting married, we were together 5 years....when? when? when? But she knew it was commig and I guess that is the hardest part.
If you ahve the money for the ring, I say do it now, why wait? If your ready that is....Doesn't matter really how you do it, because she is dying to marry you.....any which way you look at it.....you win.
Best of Luck and I wish you the best. Just make it sweet and romantic and she will LOVE it.
