Would you ever buy a wedding band to just wear at work if you were/are not married? I am considering one because we have a psych floor and I am a bit "too nice." I genuinely am nice to people.
This is what was recommended to me. Have you considered doing something similar? I am in a relationship but not married. I also don't date people at work ever.

I never did, though some people recommended it. Honestly, if patients/coworkers are going to hit on you, usually a wedding band won't deter that kind of attention from that kind of person. Case in point--I'm married now, wearing a band and shiny diamond and it still happens.
What matters is your response. Prepare yourself mentally for what you'll say in a variety of situations: blatant flirting, sexual harrassment, subtle flirting, etc. You may find the response rolls off your lips if you know in advance how you'll address it.
It will also open up questions "ooh so you are married? Tell me about your husband!"
Plan your response of "Policy states we aren't allowed to discuss personal items" or " well it's been so long I don't count the years anymore"
