  • When we were 17, my husband gave me his class ring, which was a symbol that we were dating each other and no one else.
    When we had been dating 10 months, he went to Italy and brought me back a ring, which I wore on the ring finger of my left hand. We didn't call it a promise ring or discuss what it meant, but we just always assumed we would get married. We moved in together 2 months later and got married about 2 months after that. I think it's a sweet thing, a symbol that two people are more than just dating.

  • When a man gives a woman a promise ring, to me it means that he promises to propose to her and marry her one day.

  • Rings don't really mean anything to me really. I heard someone say one time, "Why do I need a ring. I have a ring around my heart". I like that!!! That's words to live by!

  • In all honesty....I don't think they mean anything. Promise to be yours? Promise to marry you someday?....
    The same with....engagement rings...they really mean nothing *to me*.....unless you know when your getting married. I don't get these people that know they're getting married, but wait YEARS to actually follow through with it.

  • nothing. studies actually show that kids that have promise rings lose their virginity earlier.

    or are you talking about a marriage promise ring? that's just the pre-preposal. some people use their class ring as one. for me, i like the element of surprise. there really isn't any surprise when you have a promise know he'll ask sometime, you just don't know when. and there's no shock when he finally does.

  • It means. I don't want to get married to you but I want to keep you around until I get something better.

  • It means that they are too scared and unsure about asking you to marry them and setting an actual date.

  • Depends....I got a Promise ring from my Dad, but I promised to be abstinante.

    A lot of girls I know get them from their Dads.

    Seems like if a boy gives u one it means maybe ya'll are too young to get married or engaged but still promise to be faithful to one another
