    False. I take it off when I shower, workout, clean, sleep, basically any situation that could potentially mess it up. But I'm pretty O.C.D. and I make sure it's on if I'm leaving the house, or even when we're just sitting on the couch. There is one time I thought I lost it. Turns out I took it off to make dinner and my fiance took it. It just so happened to be a year to the day that he proposed (while I was in the kitchen getting ready to make dinner) so he thought it would be cute to recreate the proposal. It actually was really sweet of him.

    True! I only put it on when I leave the house, so every once in a while I forget it. It always makes me sad when I realize I'm not wearing it!

    True - I do forget to put it back on sometimes after I finish cleaning or showering but I remember to put it back on before he sees me.

    False. I have gotten used to taking it off right when I get home and reaching for it when I leave. It is always in the same little dish on the same little shelf. It's like a muscle memory by now.

    True! I take it off when I'm washing dishes or cooking, and I have forgot to put it back on a few times!

    False. It's so dainty, I always have it on - it never gets in the way & fits so well I'm not worried about it falling off. I will be leaving it behind while I travel for my Bachelorette but I will be wearing a cheapo ring in its place and will probably be anxious to get home & put my real one on!

    False ! There's no way I'm taking off my ring unless it was a dire need to or mandatory for whatever reason.

    True. I take it off in the evenings when I'm home, and put it on before I leave the house.

    True, but I often catch myself when I get to the driveway and go back. Now 8 months in I am forgetting less.

    True but only twice since Oct last year. The 2 times I forgot it, I had taken it off to cook.

    False! My dad gave me a purity ring when I was 15, my now husband gave me a promise ring when I was 22, and I got my engagement ring this past April at 23. Wearing a ring for 8 years makes it hard to forget!

    It is now at the jewelers because there's a cloudy stone in it they are replacing or cleaning, but since I have my wedding band it helps!

    False. I don't wear it on purpose when I'm at home and when I'm at the gym so that I don't damage it or get it super dirty. I forgot once like a month after we got engaged, but I left all my jewelry that day bc i was in such a rush.
