    Left hand, ring finger.  Because a promise ring is meant to show that you are taken and traditionally this is where your engagement and wedding ring will go to,  I was never a fan of the idea of a promise ring, but my Fiance got me one when we were in highschool but I only wore it for about a year

    I had a Promise Ring before I got married the first time.

    I was a real Promise Ring… with a clearly stated intention to marry / get Engaged (with a finite date)

    So I wore it on my LH Ring Finger.

    I wore mine on my left hand ring finger at now-FI’s suggestion. He wanted people to know I was his and he told me that it was “training wheels” for my bigger ring someday. Three years later we have upgrated to an engagement ring which is significantly larger.

    I always wore mine on my right hand ring finger. I saw my left hand ring finger as a “engagment or wedding ring only” finger.

    @rodeoidahochic:  I wear it on my left hand ring finger so people know that it is a significant ring from my SO and not just some other ring.

    @rodeoidahochic:  I didn’t have one, but I would either think right hand ring finger or left hand ring finger? I voted right hand.

    My fiancé gave me my promise ring back in High School and I wore it on my left hand ring finger. Back than we knew we wanted to get married but financially and mature wise we were not ready. The ring symbolized a promise and commitment of engagement, so I wore it on my ring finger. The ring was a serious commitment and so I wore in on my left hand. For me it was a promise of marriage and to the world it showed I was taken. 3 years later (I went to college we been together for over 6 years now) he proposed to me and he removed the promise ring and replaced it with my engagement ring. I now wear my promise ring on my right hand ring finger.

    @rodeoidahochic:  I used to wear it on left hand ring finger, then I got tired of people commenting about my pending wedding because it looks sort of “bridal” and most people thought I was engaged..  I didnt like that because  I felt like it gave me nothing to work towards so I switched it to right hand ring finger..

    however, I switch back and forth depending on my mood, weird I know.

    Left hand, middle finger.  My promise ring is a plain gold band, if I wore it on the ring finger of my left hand it would probably be confused as a wedding band, in other cultures people also wear their wedding bands on the ring finger of their right hand.  I’d prefer not send mixed signals to strangers that I’m engaged or married.

    The promise ring symbolizes a promise to get engaged but I’d rather reserve the ring finger for the actual engagement ring and wedding band.

    @rodeoidahochic:  I had one in high school and wore it on my left ring finger (at school. At home I wore in on my right ring finger cause it freaked my mom out!).

    My husband gave me one and I wore it on my left hand finger. However, I didn’t wear it all that often.
