    yesterday, at my tax appointment (yes, i had a tax appointment in august), i noticed my CPA's wedding ring. it tells the world that he's "taken" and he is in the marriage club.

    we need one of those. a ring (like in the left ear lobe), that tells everyone we're in the "club," or we're "family." it would let women know they could save their overtures for someone else, and it would take all of the unnecessary mystery out of trying to guess who is and who isn't.

    there are single guys (and ladies) who put on wedding rings to ward off pick-up lines...the ring works magic.

    bandanas in the hip pocket don't work...try wearing a bandana with a suit. earrings are okay, but again, not for everyone. a ring on your left hand index finger or on your right hand anywhere would be easy to pull off anywhere.

    Perhaps a cock ring would be appropriate?

    One with princess cut diamonds and random gems.
    omg!

    look on ebay there are thousands of diff. rainbow rings from $5 up into the thousands, but why can't you go the old root and use your intuition and charm. or you could plant a billboard sign on your head advertising that your gay and free, but then that's a personal choice.....i'm just fukkin wit ya brother, might buy a ring myself.......icon_smile.gif

    Say, what a cool idea!

    Something like this?

    ..perhaps with the arrows both going in the same direction would be a little more, er, to the point.

    All in gold would be nice.

    It would also ensure getting caught if you frequent glory holes.

    I know, but one with a little more style and sophistication would be good. I think it looks tacky.

    If i saw that ring, id be like "ugh, good lord! how unbelieveably brash and cheap"

    Perhaps a brushed nickel look would be cute?

    There you go, great idea.
    ....really it was the only half decent one we could find on photobucket.

    Make the band narrower and the symbols smaller and have the arrows in the same direction but the loops overlapping still. Brushed nickel would be great - a little like an engineer's ring.

    and then have both ur initials carved in on the inside.

    Now, that would be cool

    With my late and current partners we've worn a gold ring on the wedding finger with six rainbow stones (left hand in the US). But it once led to a funny scene I've related here before:

    My late partner & I were on a road trip, and stopped overnight in Council Bluffs, Iowa, just outside of Omaha. We had made reservations for a ground-floor handicapped room, but it was their last one and only had a single queen-sized bed, which we hoped wouldn't raise questions or even objections because of us being 2 men with different last names.

    My partner was at the desk, while the clerk searched through the reservations for his name, when she happily announced, using hotel terminology: "Yes, here it is, you're the non-smoking handicapped queen."

    I could feel myself about to start laughing out loud, do I ducked around the corner into a vending machine room until I could compose myself. My poor partner was stuck there with this silly grin on his face.

    Just as I rejoined him at the desk, the clerk noticed his wedding ring, and said: "What a lovely birthstone ring! And you have 6 children, all born in different months!"

    Once again I had to flee for the vending machine room, leaving him to fend for himself. A few moments later I returned to the desk a second time, and this time the clerk noticed my matching ring: "Oh, and you have 6 children, too!"

    That was it. I blurted out that I would get the luggage from our car outside and made a dash for the door, where I doubled over in laughter. When we finally got to our "non-smoking handicapped queen" we collapsed into each other's arms in hysterical laughter.

    i'm here...just working.

    now where were we? oh yeah...

    these rings aren't just for married gay men...they're for all gay men. a sign. we're family. we're in the club. if you like what you see, you can ask me out knowing i'll be somewhat receptive. but you won't hesitate because you "can't tell," or your gaydar is down for maintenance.

    personally, i would go for something simple with no particular markings or colored gems. maybe one with three letters: G, A, and Y?

    I am bumping this because I am confused. Do some gay men wear silver ring on their middle fingers? The vast majority of people I see wearing a silver ring on their middle finger looks suspect. The ring looks pure silver/grey. What's up with that?

    Error saidI always assume that if the guy is wearing a ring other than a wedding ring, he must be gay. Assumptions are great.

    Stereotypes are a real time saver. icon_wink.gif

    We both wear a traditional plain wedding band on our left ring finger. I can say with a high amount of confidence that it most certainly does not ward off people hitting on my husband. Most gay guys don't recognize it as a wedding ring, and most women see it as a challenge to conquer.

    No one owns me - not even my BF. I need no jewelry marking me as taken. If you need such a thing then have at it.

    N.B. A ring or other piece of jewelry has never stopped a spouse from straying or others from hitting on them.

    Google "rainbow wedding rings."

    Maybe they could come out with one that isn't tacky. With flawless stones, natch.

    No one owns me, either. I'm not "taken" but given, of my own free will.

    And that's how he thinks of it, too. Our rings a declaration of our love for each other, freely given. A mark of pride, that another guy wants me, as I want him.

    And also a subtle sign that says off-limits, I've already chosen my guy, and him me. I'm off the market, committed. Thank you for looking, but I'm not available, so you can save your time & energy. It saves you & me some awkward moments.

    And yes, a ring won't stop infidelity. But then I don't need a ring for that anyway, or a chastity belt, either. We're faithful because we want to be, and a ring is our public sign of that, not a magical talisman that makes us monogamous.

    When I look at my ring, his ring, when I feel it on my finger, I'm reminded of him, and it makes me happy. Happy at how fortunate I am. I think that's a good enough reason right there to wear his ring, even if nobody else even notices it. icon_biggrin.gif

    My sentiments exactly. I wear my wedding ring because I want to and I'm proud to, not out of some obligation.
