Different people have different feelings on this, but what do you consider to be "engaged"? Does someone need to have a ring on their finger or does that fact that both of you want to get married all that you need to be considered engaged?

For me it was that both of us wanted to get married. Did you get the ring?

I haven't gotten a ring yet, but I have agreed to marry him. He tells me that we're not officially engaged until he is able to give me an engagement ring, so I haven't told anyone IRL yet.

I had a promise ring for 6 months before getting my engagement ring. It became real to us once "the" ring was on my finger.

I wasn't "engaged" until he got down on one knee with THE ring. I had a promise ring for about 6 years before that happened and we had been.dating for a total of 8 years and.had a baby! Lol. I wanted the ring!! Hahah

Thank you Quantum_Leap for my fabulous signature!!!

I don't think you "need" the ring to be considered engaged, but i didn't consider myself engaged and didn't start telling people until he officially got down on one knee with the ring

Engaged was "ok, you aren't going back to Canada" for us.

I'm still waiting on my ring.. I have a wedding ring LOL, but no engagement ring. I think I want to sit down with him soon and be like "look we're going to be telling your family we're engaged soon.. let's go get the ring to make that look plausible!" His family does diamond wedding rings instead of engagement rings, but since our wedding rings match and are made of titanium (or will be when I order the good ones) I'm losing out!!!!

*pout* I want my ring! doesn't even need to be a diamond, I'll take a white sapphire!

To me it's when you both agree to get married and have at least a rough idea of when that will happen... I don't think the ring is necessary (it is nice though!), but I'm not a big fan of people saying they're "engaged" for years and years without actually thinking about when they'll get married.

To me its when he asks you and you say yes and you have a date in mind. I didnt get m ring until about a month ago but we had been engaged for at least a month prior to that and had the date set. we had to move the date becasue he will be overseas on our original wedding date
