It means you play "hide the sausage" frequently.

On a girl you didn't give the ring to? Nothing at all. If it's not on the left ring finger she's free!

Non-sense. If her male counter part is not present, she's free.

It means you won the superbowl or are a baller if you're a guy.
If you're a girl, nothing.

Rings are meaningless.

I knew plenty of women who were not married who wore rings on their ring finger, indicating marriage, just because they didn't want losers like the OP coming up and asking them out.

Nonsense. If she doesn't come in half an hour or less, she's free.

If she doesn't come in half an hour or less, I'm keeping her until she damn well does.


Wait... how does that make sense?

I've worked for 2 German companies and my married German co-workers wore their wedding ring on the right ring finger. I'm not sure if that practice is common with other European countries.

In other countries such as Serbia, Germany, Norway, Greece, Russia, Spain, Peru, Colombia, Venezuela, Ukraine, and Poland, however, it is worn on the right hand. Orthodox Christians and Eastern Europeans also traditionally wear the wedding band on the right hand. Jewish couples wear the wedding ring on the left hand, even though it is placed on the right hand during the marriage ceremony. In The Netherlands, Catholic people wear it on the left, all others on the right; in Austria, Catholic people wear it on the right. In Belgium, the choice of hand depends on the region of the country. Greek people, many being Orthodox Christians, also wear the wedding rings on the right hand in keeping with Greek tradition. A traditional reason to wear the wedding ring on the right hand stems from Roman custom. The Latin word for left is "sinister", which in addition to this sense also has the same senses as the English word. The Latin word for right is "dexter", a word that evolved into "dexterity". Hence, the left hand had a negative connotation and the right a good one.

A jeweler once told me that more traditional folks tend to put their wedding ring on their right hand.

But isn't some artery directly linked from the heart to the left ring finger. Isn't that why they put it there?

That's one of the "things" they say about why the left ring finger is where the wedding band goes.

It really depends on the ring. What does it look like? My husband gave me a ring a looooong time ago when we were dating, and I wore it on my right hand. Actually I still do.

But also, the jewelry stores have conspired with the idea of the "right hand ring" where it's your own personal design and choosing and you can express yourself by... buying yourself more diamond jewelry.
