London: Most single people check a person's ring-finger before making a move and get the conversation rolling, says a study.

An online dating site conducted the study where it found that three quarters of British respondents admitted that they look out for a wedding ring when they meet someone on a night out, reports a website.

Four in ten said they will look for a wedding ring even before they start talking to someone. If we go by percentage, women were more likely to look for a ring than men. As many as 81 percent of the women respondents said they would check the ring-finger, while 70 percent of men admitted to the habit.
