Why do some guys do this
i have been engaged for 1.5yrs and always wear my engagement ring. why do guys still ask me if I have a boyfriend or married? I say I have a fiance and they still ask me out--i just don't get it? this has happened three times this week on my way to work and at work so I'm obviously not looking and I'm more than happy with my fiance so what's up with that?

I'm in a spot where if I asked about their ring, it'd be mostly just out of honest curiosity, maybe as a conversation point; not trying to hit on the girl; I might just think it's a cool design and want to store the info away for later. I'm not quite sure what the difference is between a Promise ring, a Purity ring, a Wedding ring, or an Engagement ring, because a lot of hem are starting to look very similar. I also know several girls who wear rings in order to ward off the creepy guys (they're single), or they do it to fit in to certain cultures (work, for example) and I know several people who don't wear any rings (and have been married for years). I knew a guy who would wear a ring to get women to flirt with him and boost his confidence (it was also for a character). Though, if I look, and I see a ring on that hand, I'm going to naturally assume she's in a serious relationship, and would not mess with that.

Here's a secret... girls do the same thing too. It's not a gender thing, it's a people thing.
...doesn't hurt to try, right?
Guys will still try, just to see...

Sometimes rings are just fashionable. I mean, a guy would be pretty thick if he sees that you're wearing a big diamond on your hand and thinks you're single, but I guess that's why they ask.
Some girls wear a ring on that finger just because. They're probably just trying incase you're one of those girls. They mean no harm.
