I went to the bar today and noticed that all the bartenders were wearing wedding rings. I like to consider myself a gentleman so I will not flirt with a girl that has a wedding ring on. I figure they are either married or don't want to be hit on. But do some girls put on rings in hope that guys won't hit on them? And if so does it work?

Yup! I'm 21 and I just graduated from college with a BSc in Pre-Med, I've worn my mother's engagement (2.5 carat, 3 side diamonds platinum) ring since I started high-school, I was 13 years old back then. For me this is like a "promise ring," but to myself; I want my career first. I am not engaged, and I am far away of getting married right now, I still have 3 more years of studies. But I am not interested in dating at this moment, so this helps keeping interested guys away. Overall it does work, but they are some who still approach and don't care. I honestly find this type of guy a bit annoying, because of their lack of respect, what if I was truly engaged? Get it? And others who are curious and ask me if I am engaged. My answer to their curious question are, "It's personal, sorry!" or "Oh! It's just a promise ring."
Some people might take this as "me being selfish, etc.." but I am just not interested. So that's the point.
So to answer your question, yes it works, but it also depends how you act overall. For e.g.. Do your flirt a lot? If you do guys might take the wrong impression of you.
