I see a lot of people who posts pictures trying on dresses, getting engaged, posting pictures of engagement pics or wedding decor or ideas…
Have any of you ever posted things and then meet someone who identified you because of this?
Like.. “Are you Mrs O? I love the colors you used for your wedding!!” // “or that ring looks better in person”
haha I know I’m nuts.. but I’m just wishing or hoping for that coincidence where two worlds meet IRL..

Pictures a bee posted on WB ended up on my facebook wall because I am friends with one of her groomsmen. I let her know we had a mutual friend and that was it.

I try not to post any very personal pics on here for that reason. I like to keep some online privacy. The most telling photos I’ve shared are of my dogs, so in theory someone could spot them on a walk or something. But they would really have to be paying attention to do that.

@Mrs_O: Yes. I haven’t posted any pictures but I stupidly sent a link to a thread to my cousin. She read more than just the OP and I forgot I had commented… and that it was pretty clear if you know me that it was me! So she ID’d me and it freaked me out. We were on IM and she apparently went in and read OTHER posts I’d made, including one where I speculated that she & my SO had been talking about him proposing, so she said “Just so you know- I haven’t discussed anything with your SO”. Ugh! I asked her to stop reading because it was freaking me out.

Another Bee and I figured out that we work in the same building on occasion, but no one from my personal life knows my user name except for FI.

I ID’ed someone when I first joined, and it scared me how easy it was (and her and I aren’t close friends)!! I never told her, or read too much of her stuff – I want to respect her privacy. but its made me very mindful of what I post on here.

No! I hope it doesn’t happen either! I actually worry it’s gonna happen when I post a pic, but I do it anyways lol.

Haha, no, thank goodness! The world is so big, I would be so flabbergasted if something like that happened.
I occasionally post pictures of my face, and once someone asked me if I was Darci (or some similar name), but I am not!

@MsPiggy: Haha I’m the same way. I’m a lot more “open” online, I’m kind of a private person unless it’s my best girl buds. I always worry that an aquaintence will ID me and read something embarassing I posted lol… Don’t think I posted anything embarassing yet. But I still post pics of my face hahaha

- Wedding: June 2014 - Ontario, Canada ♥ EDD- April 2016
A lot of the people I know IRL or have on Facebook aren’t in serious relationship and aren’t planning a wedding so no one has found me yet. I’m sure in a few years when people I knew from high school and stuff start to get married it’ll be a more real possibility, but probably all of the threads I posted in will be buried 😉

No, hasn’t happened. I’m secretly hoping I’ll recognize someone lol.. but hasn’t happened so far.
I don’t put photos of my face up, but I think if someone did read all of my posts they could paint a pretty good picture of me and I could be recognized if they had a feeling about it, and then did some digging. Creepy.

Nope. I did have a bee PM me because my avatar made her think that I was someone she knew from high school, though.
Post # 14
Nope. I love the anonymity on here 🙂

No but terrified it will happen!
I once was talking to a guy through online dating back in the day and we talked for a few months but never met. fast forward a few months after that and he and I ended up working together… I was mortifed. He was the one who cut communication….
