As a newly single woman hoping to find love again I find it VERY frustrating when married men don't wear their wedding rings! My thoughts on that are if you're married, wear your ring so I know who is off limits. If you choose not to wear your ring THEN DON'T EVEN LOOK AT ME because with the eye contact you give me I assume you're interested! You are making it difficult for me to know who is available. Just when I get my hopes up, here comes your wife! UGH!
i can't speak for other men because I know I am unusual here in thinking this way. I would never wear a wedding ring because I refuse to wear jewelry due to my own personal beliefs. I could never own any jewelry or get a tattoo or piercing or anything else that was purely decorative. I am a practical person first and foremost and I believe everything about me and everything I own should have a use and a function of some sort. that is why I do not own anything decorative at my home either. no posters no paintings no photos, nothing decorative at all.
Yea, I got some male friends that fall in that category and lots of reasons.couple of them like me, hate jewelry. Wearing necklaces, rings, bracelets, etc feels 'constricting', so as these guys tell me, they take the ring off when they get home and sometimes they forget to put it back on; granted, these are not your average guys trying to get into an affair; they are happily married and don't go to titie bars, etc :) So one of the reasons is simple pure absent mindedness; then I go on business trips that are married and are definitely looking for an affair so they take their rings off when we go out for drinks. And finally there are those that lose their rings and are too laze to get new ones. :) These are some reasons I have seen in my life from friends or colleagues; I'm sure there are more out there.
I understand your frustration; when I am looking at girls I also look at their hands first to see if they are available. My dad didn't wear his wedding ring for about the first 20 years of his marriage. I know other men who do not wear their rings too. At least the men I know don't wear their rings because they are construction workers, maintenance men, electricians, AC repair men, or have jobs where they need to user their hands, ect . So they almost cannot wear their rings on the job, because it's a safety issue: especially for electricians and AC repair men. So they develop a habbit of not wearing a wedding ring at all.
Most of us would act just the same with our rings on so why does it matter.judging by your picture we'd sure stil look at you.
Most of us still have fantasies about other women.we many not mean it, but we like our little flirtations. Personally I would tell you right away I was married, wouldn't try to fool anyone, but I dont' bother to wear it because it isn't an issue very often.most of the time I'm out with my wife anyway and one time I nearly lost the ring skiing so I don't wear it out.I play sports and it always gets in the way then.
Why don'y men wear there wedding rings, mmm cause they want to pretend that they are not married some will not do anything more than that, some do it to get a little attention and chat from an attractive lady and some just to get a good shag cause its easier than making an effort with your wife (so they think)
I totally hear you. I had a guy flirt with me and I could tell if he was married or not. Everything he was telling me made me get the feeling that he was single. Then someone said something about his wife. He got some shirt but it was for women. But he just totally ignored the comment and said that he was going to wear the shirt. So I was so confused. I then couldn't tell if he was married, single or liked to wear women's shirt.
