Can i just say WTF? I dunno what is wrong with men these days… but it seems that ever since i got my sparkely sparkely i’ve never been hit on more!! Jeeze… maybe my happiness is infectious in a room these days.. but crap!
Geeze boys, its nice to know “i still got it” but i’m spoken for!!
I had 3 guys hit on me.. right in front of my fiance in one night. He thinks its hilarious and just sits back and laughs at it all but I think its annoying!
Anyone else having the same problem?!?!

Yup. The ring went on, and the compliments kept coming. One man even hit on me for an hour-long plane ride and then sheepishly asked me at the end, “Is that your engagement ring?” And I was like, uh-huh. That’s why I’ve been responding in a curt way and trying to read the scintillating in-flight magazine.

usually if i get hit on it’s by younger guys. i figure it’s because they’re not at the age where they think to look for a ring yet.

Yes, this guy at work has been uber interested in talking to me–he’s fairly new. It’s weird because he definitely saw my ring today and still kept going!
As long it’s not from some creepster, it’s a little flattering, I guess. haha. Miss Sequoia, that dude just sounded odd though!

I had that happen too! I even had one guy try to be cute about it. I told him I was married. He said “Oh you’re merry? Cool.” I held up my hand and dangled the sparkly in front of him. “No, I said MARRIED.” He just laughed and kept going. I told him if he couldn’t do better than that ring he should give up. That got him to go away!

my maid of honor has a theory…. If the guys knows hes gonna get shut down because you have a ring on your finger he might as well show off in front of his guy friends. Then he can say you turned him down cause you were engaged/married… not because he was some ugly loser. lol

lol. @tarahartman, that’s a pretty good theory. It’s probably the only thing that explains it.
I’m pretty sure it’s not an issue of them not seeing it; I’ve actually had a couple of guys start out with “That’s a beautiful ring you’re wearing.” before trying to pick me up! Definitely don’t get the point.

this is a funny thread! i don’t know if i can say i’ve been hit on any more than usual… but it certainly comes in handy when i can cut off unwanted attention on the spot just by flashing my ring! it’s awesome! i have yet to meet someone who doesn’t respect the ring.

@kemi I know what you mean! I use it for men…sometimes but more so for respect at work! I am young but I am a manager which most customers don’t know (don’t wear a badge, etc) so I flash it about so they realize I’m older/a boss hahaha

Unfortunately in my area alot of girls wear fake rings so alot of guys will still hit on you even if your ring is real.

My theory: It all comes down to …. MEN ALWAYS WANT WHAT THEY CAN’T HAVE… especially the desperate ones

classic…everyone wants something and someone that they can’t have. Human nature tends to love a challenge and it happens to be interesting to men to see if they can get your attention even when you are spoken for 🙂 I know it can be very very annoying

That’s so funny! This didn’t really happen to me, but it makes me giggle. The theory definitely makes sense – you want what you can’t have!!

I think they view it as more of a challenge and therefore have more interest when they see the ring. How genuine that interest is may be questionable. There are so many men that really do only want what they can’t have. If you actually reciprocated and showed them some interest back, they’d probably not display as much interest in you. They are bizarre creatures.
