Converted sister here! How long should one wait in order to start thinking about marriage as a Muslim? I have been Muslim for three years and no one really peeks my interest. Is there something wrong with me?

As soon as one feels that they can fulfill the obligations and responsibilities of marriage, one should embark upon its journey. More important, learn the necessary skills that would make you a good husband/wife. Marriage is not a living experiment. Marital experiments consistently yield laboratory disasters. Know what you want out of the spiritual and nonspiritual domain. Never be desperate nor play hard to get when a good proposal comes by.
‘No one peeking your interest’ could be as a result of you looking in the wrong places or having unrealistic expectations. Know fully what you want to get out of your intended relationship.
Each person knows what is right and wrong with them. You can best answer the last part of your question. Knowing this could help make you a far more successful person in every facet of your life.
Sincerely wishing you the best,
Allah Certainly Knows Best.
