    So, I finally got my ering and I absolutely love how it looks. We had it custom made (I helped picked it out b/c my FI knows how picky I am) and I love the ring - but I don't like wearing it.
    I never wore rings before this so maybe I have to get used to it - but I am so uncomfortable wearing it. I want to show it off and I am excited about that, but as soon as I get home I am so happy to take it off..
    Part of it is that it feels really loose and moves around - but it barely fits over my knuckle and is really hard to take off, so I couldn't get a smaller size..
    Has anyone had this problem I may go to the jeweler and see about the sizing, but I told this to my fiance and he seemed so upset that it isn't perfect after all the work he went through to have someone make my perfect ring..

      You definitely have to get used to it. I never wore a ring on that finger before either and at first it felt really weird. Now if I don't have it on I feel totally naked.

        I don't know if I'm always happy either or comfortable wearing mine... but at the same time, whenever it's off during the day I feel naked.
        Often, I find it bothers me at night, so I take it off halfway through the night.

        I just got married, so now I have to get used to 2 on my finger. And my fingers are short!

        Why don' tyou just try taking it off at night and that will give your finger a break as you get used ot it. Just make sure you have a little box that closes to put it in next to your bed. You don't want to start leaving it around everywhere! You might lose it!

          ha my DH is the same way. It's been 1.5 months and he's just getting used to wearing his ring all day. There are still days that he takes it off as soon as he gets home. I think it's all a matter of what you get used to.

            Ha, at least yours put his on! My DH's ring was to small for him at the wedding and we were going to get it resized, then he had surgery on his shoulder and his fingers were so swollen for a while. I don't know what his excuse is now!

              It definitely took me a couple weeks to get used to wearing my engagement ring. It was annoying at first to have it on. After a while, though, I got used to it. Now, I don't even notice it.

                I actually forgot to wear mine a lot in the beginning. But now, like others have said, I feel naked without it.

                  DH had a hard time with the first one we bought, because it was thick and not tapered on the edges and a bit big. So as soon as he got home, he took it off. The new one fits him better, so he wears it all the time, and its tapered.

                  It was so funny, with the last one, he would take it off to have <ahem> marital relations. He said he felt unbalanced. I was like whoa that might get in the way of the moves!

                    Do you girls ever take your rings off? I've had mine for over 8 months and I just can't get used to wearing it at work (hospital) for some reason so I don't wear it all the time. I also take it off to sleep and shower. Sometimes I feel like I never wear it! LOL.

                      I feel the same way. Now I wear it at work, but when I first got it I was uncomfortable wearing it. I think half of it was comfort and the other half was I was scared to death to lose it! I lose jewelry a lot. I have gotten used to wearing it and it doesn't bother me anymore, but I still take it off if I am showering, cleaning, or sleeping. So basically I wear it in public. Hopefully someday I'll feel naked without it!
