FI gets a little weird if I don’t show off my ring. I mean, I always wear it but I rarely thrust it in people’s faces. He introduced me to a friend of his from his former office and I said hello, shook his hand, etc. But I didn’t go “Yeah, I’m his fiance, check out my ring!” But later FI asked me why I didn’t show his friend the ring. I didn’t stuff my hand in my pocket or anything. I just didn’t thrust my hand in his face and go “Look at my ring!” And as a general rule, I don’t bring up the fact that I’m engaged. I mean, when FI proposed, I went to work, went out with friends, family, and of course made a big huge deal and showed everyone and it was fun. But now that it’s been a couple months, most people know and have seen…
How do you handle this sort of thing? Do you show everyone your ring?

No. I would assume (and this could be wrong on my part) that only a gay man would care about my ring lol.

Tough one, i always want to show it off, bias of course, but its the most beautiful ring EVER! I’ve never been one to show it off so i tend to wait until someone asks to see it. I think shoving it in someones face isnt a very classy way to go about announcing your engagement. But i can understand where he is coming from, he bought you a gorgeous ring and he wants his friends to see it. sorry , i know im not much help here 🙂 but i dont blame you at all for not thwoing it in his face.

I don’t make a big deal out of mine and FH doesn’t mind…maybe you should ask why your fiance is so bothered by it.

I did ask him and he said “I don’t know, I just thought you’d show him.” lol, I don’t know any classy way to shove my hand in someone’s face.

I showed it off to friends and family, but I don’t think other people would care. I did notice that my FH liked when people told him that he did a great job. So maybe it is an ego stroke for him. I think it is cute when he starts blushing when people compliment us. lol

“FI, it’s so gorgeous that everyone notices it, even if I don’t point it out.” Ego boosted, and you’re off the hook :). That’s what I would do, anyway. Or, you could just be honest and tell him that you don’t feel comfortable shoving your ring in a stranger’s face, but you gushed about it to your friends.

lol @jo.lee! I think I will steal that line from you if you don’t mind 🙂 I always always tell him how much people compliment the ring but I do love the way you’ve phrased that!
