Getting engaged too soon?

I know the few of you that answered mostly think we're rushing, but oh well. It will make us happy and I feel like it will bring us closer, and that's all I care about.
Thanks for the input.

That's what I said when we talked about it. But she has this odd sort of dream of being engaged early, and it would make her really happy. I'm not worried about anything happening though. She's spent most of the last four and a half years waiting for me to fully commit, and I don't expect her to change her mind now that she's really got me on the hook. And it's safe to say that this time around I feel more strongly about her than I ever have about anyone else. I'm completely expecting us to last, regardless of when we get engaged. I know we're young and this is a little crazy, but oh well.
So far, about what I was expecting in the couple replies. Thanks for the input.

Perhaps a Promise-Ring if you so feel the need to express your love to her with a material posession.

but the grass is never greener on the other side!!!! i'd advise talkign about moving in together first. its an awesome experience and compatibility check.
i wont tell you not to get engaged, cause i want to myself. but i am waiting until i can afford a proper engagement ring, i think that is enough time to really consider it and work through the relationship.
you can plan to get engaged though. my plan is in roughly 2-3 years, and then married hopefully 2 years after that. that would make us be dating for 7 or 8 years before getting married.
my brother has been with his girlfriend (not fiance or anything) for 11 years now, since they were both freshmen in high school. they broke up a while back because he DIDNT propose yet and she was sick of waiting. but they are together again.. waiting for my brother not to be a bum and get a real job.
