    I tell my SO pretty much everything about the bee. Cattiness, interesting threads, and just plain weirdness I’ve seen here.

    I read the good threads off to my husband.

    I have never gotten offended on the internet. It isn’t easy to offend me, and I don’t allow complete strangers to upset me or ruin my day.

    Honestly when I read some of the flat out rude things bees say to one another on this site I just shake my head and thank god I don’t have to be around them in real life. 

    ETA: I tell my FI about the bee. Sometimes he laughs and other times he’s like “what the hell is wrong with people”

    My SO sometimes laugh at the special snowflakes with me while we’re watching tv. It’s better when they post pics.

    What can you expect when you throw a thousand or so women from around the world on an internet forum? There’s gonna be bitches, just like real life. Can’t take it personally.

    I ran into a woman at work recently who was literally one of the nastiest, rudest people I have ever met in my life… Once she realized I was engaged (like she is), she changed her tune. One of the first things she said after having a full out manic episode was “oh, do you go on weddingbee?!”…. My immediate thought was “annnddddd…. Now some of those downright rude comments make complete sense.”

    I usually come in pretty late to the offensive threads and don’t spend the time reading through the pages and pages of comments. I feel like I’ve gotten offended maybe once or twice but I forgot about it as soon as I shut my lap top. I don’t tell SO about the crazy threads but there are some threads that I’ll bring up to my SO just to discuss (for example the “is webcam porn cheating” thread)

    I don’t share the fights with my husband but when someone posts an emotional thread going into detail about what a jackass their SO/FI/DH is, I will usually read it to my husband and ask him for his opinion.  When I first started doing that he was like “Wait, you’re already married, why the hell are you posting on a message board dedicated to wedding planning?”  Damn him!

    Ok. At risk of now being one of those catty posters:

    If you frequent the bee a lot and “have no idea” what the OP is talking about… You are probablllllyyy one of the type of posters she is referring to that can make hurtful comments. Just a thought.

    I don’t get offended from anything on the Bee. Some of the posts do give me quite a bit of entertainment though!
