More and more women are going out on the street or going on public transport wearing engagement rings. But in fact, they are single. And the reason as to why they’re wearing these 'fake' engagement rings is freaky!
The excuse 'I’ve already got a boyfriend' doesn’t seem to be working anymore on the gentlemen who are just a bit too insistent when asking for your number in the street. The new popular method to deter the creeps is to wear an engagement ring!
The ring suggests that you are in a 'serious relationship' and that there is therefore no room for a new lover…You’re hoping then that this ring (which means marriage, let’s be clear) will earn the respect of catcallers in the street.
This trend originates from the US after a young woman who had been harassed by a work colleague decided to wear an engagement ring to make him understand that she was already taken. She even posted a picture on social media with an explicatory caption, which quickly attracted attention. Thousands of women sent her messages of sympathy.
Some women have even admitted that they have done the same thing to get rid of a man who’s just a little too keen.
What do you think of this technique?
