To those who divorced or called off the engagement, did you take the ring back? And if so, what did you do with it?

You need to think about state law too. The ring might not be yours to take back.


Once you're married, it's hers (or whomever you gave the ring to). It's a gift given in consideration of marriage, so once you're married the recipient has upheld their end of the bargain. This is the current case law.

Now, traditionally it went that the ring was given back if the lady broke off the engagement, but kept if he broke it off. That is no longer the case; now the legal precedent is if there's no marriage, he can take the ring back.


Can confirm ring belongs to the bride. When sold it will be for a loss unless you purchased at extreme discount.

Returned it to the place I bought it from for a slight loss but getting most of the money back is better than nothing!


100% return it. The more you see it, the worst it gets in the brain. You have to move on. I wasn’t married but broke off the engagement because she was cheating! Tough decisions but that’s the only way you can move on in life. Hope you feel better soon.


Shiiet, I threw that thing back!

Since the pandemic started my singledom has been cast into stark relief. I've decided I need to put more effort I'm her finding a partner. I asked a male friend for a sort of SWOT analysis on myself from a guy's perspective and he said something interesting.

He said I seem to not really need a man.

I've heard this before. I've even heard this from women.

I have no idea how I give the impression of not needing a man. What can I do about this? Being home alone is starting to make me sad.

I’m not really one to “slide into someone’s DM’s” but sometimes I do see women leave their insta handle on hinge and I am tempted to … I just feel like it’s so cringe. I’m pretty straightforward and don’t do small talk on dating apps… so I was thinking about something like
“hey, came across your profile on hinge, my horoscope today said I should do something out of the ordinary & I’d get rewarded, so I’m not one to DM slide…but here it goes.. drinks this week?”

What do you guys think?

Hello fishes,

Has anyone else quit the apps and starting meeting people IRL? It's so much better imo


Any male fishes in mid to late 30s in Texas without kids want to connect?


I feel like working from home has been the death of my dating life. I used to at least go on 4 dates a month, and I was casually seeing a guy for a while. Post covid, I love my work-life balance but I'm never out. I can't meet people sitting at my desk, and I have no local coworkers to pull me out of the house for happy hour.
