Strangers ask to try on your engagement ring??

It’s beautiful! I don’t really get why strangers would ask? Friends, sure. I’m not crazy about it but I get friends asking. Strangers though? That’s kinda weird…

Tell them that you have a rare contagious skin disorder. lol  That should work.

@MrsFuzzyFace: Haha, yes, do that!

I haven’t had anyone ask to try mine on, and I think it’d be a little weird if they did. But it’s EXTRA weird that the people that are asking you are basically strangers. Like, who does that??

I have my friends ask me all the time (but I watch them like a hawk).  And people at work, but I wouldn’t call them strangers.

Tell them that you don’t like taking it off, because you’re afraid that you’ll drop it, or that you have a tough time removing it & getting it back on. I find it kinda disturbing that strangers would be asking you this. It’s almost expected that at least ONE friend or family member would ask you to try it on, IMO.

Weirrrrdd…..I would just say “I’m sorry, but I don’t ever take it off.”

Hmm, no one has ever asked me this, not even a friend!  I think it’s weird.  FI’s mom popped it on her finger once without asking (she had been holding it to see the changes we’d had made to the ring) and it upset me for a few moments.  Luckily, she couldn’t get it past her second finger joint so it wasn’t all the way “on”.  She’s a tiny lady, but I have skinny fingers!  😛

Aaaarg, that would drive me NUTS. In an ENGAGEMENT RING! No one else needs to be “trying it on”. Dang.

Well, at least they are being nice and enthusiastic about your ring.

That is odd that strangers would do that…I would probably just say that I don’t like taking it off.  You have a really beautiful ring, though!  🙂

I would say that, too…. you just don’t ever take it off. Wow. That’s def. a new level of rudeness regarding ring stories lol. I think I’d be slightly horrified if someone did that to me. It’s a weird request.

Nobody, not even my friends, has asked that. Maybe your local watering hole is tainted?
