Is he still your boyfriend? He might want to keep you on the side.
So many questions. Please follow up, OP. Because it's shitty if your family knew about this other girl and continued to let you see this guy and not say anything. Unless you meant to say ex-boyfriend, in which case they might have been guarding your feelings. I don't know. I want to hear the whole story.
One possibility is that he asked OP's father for permission and then OP's dad blabbed it to everyone. So let's not assume the guy is a dick. Even if he might be living in the 1950's.
I was thinking the same thing. He might also have gone to a sister or something for advice (ie: what type of rings she likes, her dream proposal, etc) or maybe wanted to do some elaborate proposal that would require the family being in on it. A follow-up would be lovely.
Yes that's a possibility. That sort of happened to me. My husband asked my father for his blessing, and then my father and brother congratulated me on my engagement before he got around to proposing. It wasn't that big a spoiler because marriage was something we'd discussed so I knew it was going to happen anyway and he didn't actually propose until several months later so I was so surprised, but my dad and brother were still embarrassed when I said, "Congratulations? What for?"
I'm going to guess that she meant the guy is engaged to someone else and somehow her family found out and didn't tell her, maybe because women don't always take the news well that their significant other is cheating on them (or maybe in OP's case that she's the side piece). But do clarify for us, OP.
