Finally i just gave up wearng earrings..

    Even the clip-on earrings? Are they even made anymore? I have my grandmother's jewelry which are clip-ons.

    I like wearing earrings. Many women have more than one ear piercing but it took my sister to convince me to get the one. I wouldn't consider having more.

    Even though I don't wear my pierced earrings often I still am able to fit them in the holes in my ears without to much difficulty. Where my ears are pierced if I place a finger on the back and front of my ear lobe I can feel the slightly raised difference in where the piercing was done...and finding those spots helps me get my earrings on much faster. :)

    Welcometo the forum, @joyful soul !
    If you look at the top of the page under “notices and announcements”, there is a section for introductions where you can start an introduction thread and tell us all a little more about yourself, where you are from, how you found this forum, stuff like that.

    Also, you might have noticed, but everyone here uses what looks like a real name (first/last name) and not a username.
    If you click on your name at the top of the page, it will open a little box, and one of the choices is going to be name change. Choose that, and then you can change your name from the user name to a regular name. It does not have to be your real name, it just has to sound like it can be a real name.

    I quit wearing earrings years ago. First I lost a pair of very special diamond studs and decided to let those piercing heal over as punishment for my carelessness. I wore hoops and hangers in the lower piercings for a few years. I was at a concert when some jerk came from behind and grabbed me and his girlfriend stole my custom made hangers by a Hopi silversmith. He held me until she got away. A couple of friends grabbed and beat the hell out of him, but that didn't get my earring back. I let my ears heal and put away all my custom jewelry. I recently found it again and just cleaned it up. I still have another set of overlay silver Hopi hangers and I am seriously considering having my ears pierced again. I am old enough now to be more responsible ... I think!

    Same here, Von. One piercing in each ear; I pierced them myself when I was 16. I have never cared for multiple piercings. I wear earrings all the time and feel naked without them. Usually small hoops or studs.

    I still have a lot of gigantic earrings (some are clip-ons) from the 80s and 90s... back when our earrings matched our huge shoulder pads and mall hair. :D Those were the days.

    I've never had pierced ear lobes. I do have clip-ons, and they are hard to get these days. I often lose an ear ring since I must take one off each time I answer the phone. For some reason, I cannot answer it with my right hand. Nutso.
