    There are definately times where I’ll feel like it’s missing! I have worn a ring on my right hand ring finger for the last 2 years and it’s the same feeling as when I forget to put that ring on. It’s weird, it just should be there, haha!

    If you’ve never worn a ring on that finger, I’m not sure how you can miss one.

    You can certainly wish there was one there… lol, I soo get that part.  But that is a whole other thing IMO than missing one.

    Missing one, is what I felt after my seperation, and my finger was naked for the first time in close to 25 years.

    That was a really really odd feeling.

    In the end, I had to find some thing to wear on that finger, just to make “the feeling” subside a bit

    In the 10+ years since then, I’ve been able to adjust… I now am able to wear rings on any, all or none of my fingers, and don’t think twice about it.

    I’ve been wearing my E-Ring from Mr TTR since June, and it is still a very new feeling… lol, now my issue is getting used to it (a whole other concept… accidently gave it a good wack yesterday on a door frame, because I’ve come to forget that a Diamond Ring is on that finger and it stands out a bit beyond my finger top)

    OMG….I thought I was just going crazy feeling like this!!!! Almost every day my finger feels “heavy” like there should be a ring there. Only way I can explain it is if you ever had a tongue ring….after taking it out, it feels like something is missing. Thats exacrly how my finger feels

    Glad Im not the only one!!!

    I never ‘missed’ the feeling of a ring before I received mine. I *wished* there was a ring there every once in a while… Now, the 2 weeks it took to get my ring back from getting it sized…I missed it a TON then! haha! It felt like there should have been something there, so for a while I wore a “placement ring” (aka the ring Fiance gave me for our first anniversary).

    I’m so glad I’m not the only one. I’ve panicked before because I feel my left finger for my wedding set, and it’s not there!!


    And then I remember that I’m not even engaged…. it’s soo weird!

    I do feel like mine is naked! However, my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I were engaged previously when we were younger, so I wore a ring until we decided to get re-engaged when we got older and had a better idea of what marriage truly meant.

    I totally get this! I think I feel a little of both missing and wishing. I actually catch myself touching that finger a lot. Weird. Oh we’ll. hopefully soon this will all change!

    I totally thought I was the only one who has that feeling! I randomly rub my finger sometimes because I feel like there should be something there. And I have honestly looked at my finger and had the momentary oh crap where is my ring feeling even though I don’t have one yet! It is similar to the adjustment I went through post-divorce when I took off my wedding band but it just started happening for me in the last 6 months or so again. So bizarre!

    I do, but I was previously married, so I just got used to wearing wedding rings. I guess since SO and I have been together I feel married, or at least engaged, so I just feel like I should be wearing a ring. I’ve been wearing some little silver stacking rings that I had in my jewelry box and that’s fixed it right up.

    I haven’t had a ring on my actual ring finger in years. And I didn’t ever feel like it was missing anything. But lately, with my soon-to-be engagement on my mind, I keep feeling a phantom ring there, or feeling like “OH Where did it go?”

    @This Time Round:  LOL I wack my ring into things all the time. Better the ring than my knuckles I guess!

    I guess not so much that I *miss* it persay, more that I feel like it should be there…
