    I voted “other” because my FI knows I’m on here and my nearest and dearest BF also knows. But the funny part is that I didn’t think I actually “knew” anyone from real life on here. 

    Then I got a message one day entitled “I think I know you”

    Sure enough! I did know her. (We live in a small town). But I just love her, so it wasn’t a big deal ๐Ÿ™‚

    DH and a couple close friends know I am still a member of a wedding site, but do not know which one or my username.

    My husband knows I’m on WB.  I haven’t told him my username but it’s probably not the hard to figure out since I’ve used this username for a lot things.

    I know a few of my bms know that I post on here because I forwarded them a thread I started on here to fill them in on the drama going on in my life in regards to wedding planning.

    DH knows I am on WB and I think he knows my username, but I am not sure. A few other people know I am on here and know my username as well.

    I have never mentioned WeddingBee to anyone I’m close with. DH knows I go on a wedding website but that is it. It’s not that I’m embarrased of anything I said but during my wedding planning I turned to these boards alot to help me get through the wedding planning with such difficult inalws. I can imagine that DH may not be the happiest person if he knew I told strangers about his family. But at the same time he doesn’t like to talk about it and I needed to get unbiased advice.

    I said other.  My husband knows I’m on here (and knows my username).  And I’ve become friends off boards with some people I met on here.  Does that count?  ๐Ÿ™‚

    Only my husband knows, including my username. After the last metup I told my mom I went to dinner with some girls I met on a wedding website but she thought I was joking. I’m sure a lot of people at my work wonder why there’s always a sketch of a woman wearing a wedding dress and holding a red bouquet on my screen. I don’t tell anyone else, because I’m sure they’d find it weird I’m on a wedding website considering I got married a year ago.

    only my hubby knows, and he knows my username. he has a music-related board that he’s posted on for years, so he gets it. it’d be a bit awkward if other people knew i was here though, especially people i’ve talked about…

    As far as I know only FI knows I’m on here and I’m pretty sure he knows what my username is. I’ve spoken about “my wedding site” with friends and family before but they don’t know which site I’m referring to (I’m going to let them keep thinking its TK). If they were to find WB, it wouldn’t be too tough to figure out who I am since my username is my first and middle name.

    I told FI that I post on a wedding message board but I didn’t specify the name of the site.  He made fun of me, that bastard!

    FI knows about weddingbee but I don’t think he knows my username. No one else really knows and I like it that way because this is like my own little safe place ๐Ÿ™‚
