Julianne Hough and Chuck Wicks are happily dating ... and that's it. Engagement rumors swirled Wednesday after a PEOPLE article quoted her as saying, "We definitely want to go there," and attributed the quote as her response to the prospect of marriage.

"Chuck and I just wanted to clear things up," Hough writes on her website. "First of all, sorry to disappoint, but we are not engaged. We are dating and enjoying this stage in our relationship. We're not in any rush. They twisted my words in that article and its gotten to be a much bigger deal than it should be."

Wicks and Hough met on the Paisley Party Tour. They started dating in summer, and both have since publicly professed their love ... but don't expect Wicks to drop to one knee just yet.
