    Guys hit on me just the same.  However, once i wave my left hand around most guys get the hint, freak out and run away.  Laughing

    If I sense the convo is going in a flirty direction, I usually wave my hand around so the guy can see my ring. Guys seem to notice the ring pretty quickly and back off.

    No real diff, seems to me that single guys don’t seem to really recognize that an engagement ring is not just some random ring.

    Guys are usually oblivious; they don’t check hands before starting their “moves.” But all I have to do is nonchalantly brush my hair out of my eyes with my left hand, and it works – sometimes they even stop in mid-sentence!

    I seriously feel like I’ve been hit on more since I’ve had my ring. My mom said the same happened to her when she got engaged too. I think some guys see it as some sort of a challenge.

    I think I get hit on MORE now that I’m engaged/in a relationship. I swear, when I was single I couldn’t get a guy to look at me twice. Maybe it’s a confidence thing – as in, now I’m not interested in picking up when I go out, so I project a different sort of vibe.

    These days guys just don’t really seem to care LOL…..I get hit on the same amount with or without my ring. When I had my ring I literally had a guy hit on me and I said I’m engaged and he was like yeah right! and I was like yeah I am….and he goes you could just be wearing that ring to throw me off LOL….funny because I did have a friend that did that

    I work in a male-dominated field, and I find that guys seem more comfortable with me now that I’m decidedly “taken.” I feel like especially other married guys are totally comfortable talking with me because we both know the other isn’t trying to hit on us. It’s definitely made networking a lot easier for me.
