@LeenieBee:  You need to sit down and talk with him about this, do you want to say that you are engaged before the ring and proposal? 

Ask him “the other day when you said this…. I was very surprised, I didn’t know we were engaged!” Talk it out, explain your expectations and ask him what he is thinking. It may be awkard yes, but it will be less awkard than him going around and possibly telling others that you are engaged when you don’t even feel you are!

I agree, I think you need to tell him that you don’t really feel engaged until there’s a ring. It’s totally possible that he wouldn’t understand that, especially since most guys don’t wear a ring during the engagement period. They just don’t get the symbolism for us =). I completely think you could bring this up without starting an argument or anything like that.

It sounds like you are definitely engaged, especially since he is telling people. You should explain to him that you would like to share the news with friends and family too, but feel awkward doing so without the RING!!

Guys are soooooo dense sometimes. How can he note realise the ring is the very first thing people want to see when a woman says she is engaged?? Sheesh.

Oh honey. Forget about the ring for a second. Sit down and have a talk with him asap. Obviously you guys have major differences in what you define engaged as… don’t start a marriage with such a huge communication error!!
