Ok, DH says that he’s noticed that now that he is married, he’s been getting looks from more women. I asked him, if it wasn’t just him thinking that, but he says that other coworkers have also noticed the increase attention he is getting because of his wedding ring. (A little background, he is a general manager of a seafood fast food restaurant. So he does have a lot of contact with customers.)
Anyway, now that he’s brought this to my attention, I started noticing that, when we go shopping, sales women will come up to him and ask him if he needs help. But I’m like, 5 feet away from him and they don’t even notice me. (I think this has nothing to do with us being married now… but it’s just something I’ve come to notice. )
I also, do have to admit that I’m not an observant person. I don’t stare at people, I don’t notice what people wear. But now that he told me about this, I’m starting to be more observant.
Anyone else notice anything different since you’ve become married?

DH says the same thing! When I’m with him he flashes his ring at women no matter where we are (ever at the Burger King drive-thru), if they’re being a little too friendly. I think it’s adorable, since before we got married he didn’t even think about other women flirting with him, he just ignored them. Now he gets all defensive! Too funny!

my husband is foxy and seems to always get attention from sales people, haha. Though I’m sure that his shiny new ring does catch peoples’ eyes. I have heard that idea, though and think you’re on to something!

My hubs is frickin’ hawt and he gets hit on a lot, usually by gay guys. BUT. Here lately, yes, the women have been getting a little too upclose to him. This one chick totally gave him the walk by smirk flirt the other day, while I was standing right next to him! I looked at her back sternly as she walked away, but I don’t think it was very effective. :/

I think it’s because there seriously are skanks out there that actually look for married guys to flirt with or, even worse hook up with. You know.. because it’s more of a challenge or some psychological BS like that.
If anyone tries to steal MY man, I’ll punch her in the face!

lols at layla “I looked back at her sternly”. Not yet married but just chiming in, women like challenges, and married men are a challenge because they’re unattainable. Most women are respectful of this fact but others are ruthless and don’t care.

My husband sends the girls in his office into giggles whenever he mentions his “wife.” And he’s definitely mentioned that he gets different reactions with his new shiny ring. I wonder how much of it is the “oh, this guy is not a threat” at least in the customer service industry. Like waitresses aren’t keeping their guards up so they don’t get hit on all the time?

Yeah my husband was happy to get a ring for the same reason – it’s a chick magnet according to his married friends. Apparently because he’s obviously not a commitment phobe? (Don’t know how this works, because if a married man hits on you in a bar, he’s obviously not that committed either!) Funny how mens brains work sometimes!

Our neighbor got married and he said that since he’s had the ring on women having been eyeing and coming on to him more than ever so maybe there is some truth to it lol

Unfortunately, there are a lot of women that look only for married men. They consider them “safe”. These women are not looking for a comittment. They are just looking for the challenge.

And you know what… it’s not the other way around. Guys don’t really notice me more when I was engaged or now that I’m married. (Not that I’m looking for it.)
Anyone watch the tv show, “Scrubs”. Remember that scene where JD (I think) tells all the women in the area to take off their wedding band and all of sudden there’s like 50 more women he didn’t notice before. LOL
Funny how things work.
You do have a good point. Some women do think that married men are safe because they are commited.

My DH and I were just talking about this the other day! He thinks it is because women feel safer that married men aren’t thinking about getting down their pants. Or married men have a confidence that unmarried men do not. I have heard from some pilots that they look for other marrieds to have an affair with. That way both have something to lose. Isn’t that horrible?

for my DH, I don’t think it’s the ring, but just the fact that I buy all his clothes now, got him to start working out, and get regular haircuts 😉

I feel like married men are probably sort of attractive to single women because being married means they can make a long term committment.. which is something so many women are looking for!! haha it makes sense!
