A woman who was trying to sell her engagement ring after her marriage broke down found that she received a lot of "creepy" unwanted messages instead.

Camille Fahrnbauer, 26, who is a travel nurse from Salt Lake City, Utah, decided to sell her stunning star-shaped diamond engagement ring on Facebook Marketplace to make some extra cash.

After putting the ring online, she did get lots of interest... however, it seems a lot of the people reaching out were more interested in getting a date with her than the ring itself.

She took to TikTok to share the experience, writing in overlay text over a photo of the ring in question: "POV your husband leaves you so you try & sell your engagement ring on Facebook marketplace."

In the next slides on the post, she shared responses from the men who slid into her DMs under the guise of being interested in the ring.

When she asked the first one if he was interested in buying it, he responded: "tbh I really dont want the ring I rather just use the ring to re marry you."

Another simply told her: "Hey, I’m not interested in the ring, but I would be interested in taking you on a date sometime. What do you think?"

Someone else messaged her to ask: "I’m not looking for a ring yet. Would it be bold of me to take my shot?"

Another hopeful suitor wrote: "Hey Camille, I don’t want to buy the ring but how about I take you country dancing and we can talk about what you are going through."

Despite the slightly overwhelming amount of men who apparently mistook Facebook Marketplace for a dating app and thought it would be appropriate to shoot their shot, Camille thankfully saw the funny side.

She captioned the video: "Ladies, delete Hinge and download Facebook Marketplace. Anyways, does anyone want my ring?"

The video has since been viewed over 6.5 million times, and many took to the comments to share their opinions, writing: "Is this my sign to try and sell an engagement ring on Facebook Marketplace?"

Another joked: "I really hope they weren't searching for a ring on there when they found your account... cause if they were..."

Someone else wrote: "Men can just never read the room", while another added: "last one got that sympathy rizz."

Others questioned whether the engagement ring should have been given back to the purchaser if the relationship didn't work out, while others believed that it was hers to do whatever she wanted with as it was given to her.

Surprisingly, a large amount of people also suggested that she take up the offer of the country dancing date for some reason. Though it sounds like a lot of fun, it's probably a bit weird under the circumstances, no?

Camille later shared an update to reveal that she had in fact sold the ring and shared what she did with the cash.

She shared a clip of her fanning herself with a large wad of notes, before sharing a travel montage as she told her followers: "the same day i sold my engagement ring a friend called asking if i wanted to fly to Italy with her.

"5 days later im back in the EXACT SAME town i eloped in to make better memories. fulllllll circle baby."

We have no choice but to stan.
