    @shortie1848:  I haven’t. It’s not because “I’m perfect” but rather because I don’t take it off. I would feel like something was missing if it ever was off so I’m sure I’d notice.

    Nope, but only because I don’t take it off. I’m prone to forgetting things.

    I take mine off when I’m applying lotion. One day I was rushing to the office and forgot it. I felt TERRIBLE and my FI was working from home, so he ended up bringing it to me on my lunch break. Lol!

    I forgot mine today!  I take it off whenever I cook and I put food in the crock pot this morning and in an early morning haze left the house without it.  Oops!

    I don’t wear mine to work but I try to wear socially.  But, I mess up all the time, especially if I’m in a hurry to get home and shower, then go out.  Im pretty sure I’ll never live down forgeting it the first time we went home after we got engaged.  

    My FI has basically gotten over it though – he knows I don’t do it on purpose so it doesn’t bother him that much.

    I don’t really wear mine anywhere except for work. I take it off right after work to work out and don’t typically put it back on until the next morning so even though I run to the store without it, it’s not because I forgot it. However, I did forget it once before work and felt naked the whole day at work. I couldn’t find right away this morning though because I didn’t put it in my ring dish mi freaked out a bit!

    @shortie1848:  I’ve forgot mine once or twice, and I was a little rattled! Not because I hate being out and about without a ring on my finger, but because I’m so used to having it on that it made me a little nervous to think about where I left it.

    I think I have forgotten just twice. Definitely felt weird!

    Fun story: Last weekend my husband left his on his desk while he went out, and called me in a disguised panic saying “Now, this doesn’t necessarily mean anything, but have you seen my wedding ring?” Me: “Oh yeah, it’s right here on your desk!” And he had the biggest relieved sigh I’ve ever heard! He was like “THANK GOD, I thought I might have just flushed it down the toilet or something!” He was gone for about 4 hours, so I’m surprised he didn’t notice the naked finger until that late! IMO he’s just asking to lose his rings. He wears two very sentimental rings daily, and takes them both off to shower, sleep, eat, work, type, go to the bathroom, play video games, EVERYTHING!

    I did at the beginning, but now – never. I take it off when I get home, but I never forget to put it on before I leave the house. I don’t wear it when I’m exercising though, and my finger always feels so naked without it!

    I have almost forgotten a couple of times. Meaning that I have almost walked out the door or have gotten to my car in the morning, noticed and then went back in to get my ring.

    I have not yet, but I have mistakenly worn it on the wrong hand/finger once. I wear a ring on my right hand as well, and for some reason I put that ring on the left hand. Noticed it a couple hours later, whoops!

    @shortie1848:  I’ve done it a couple of times after taking it off to work out and leaving it in my gym bag. I don’t wear it to bed, so if it’s not there when I’m getting ready in the morning I’ll forget!
