Just curious/just for fun.
Do you remember how you found this site? Almost a year ago, after being with my SO short of 3 years, I started looking up rings and proposals and stumbled on here.
How has it changed your perspective on relationships/engagements? Do you think you’re better or worse off for it? It made me aware of something I wasn’t aware of before. This whole waiting thing that I’ve never heard of and an entire phase of a relationship I never went through before. A pro is that I got a timeline out of my SO, which in itself progressed and I think strengthened our relationship. A con is that sometimes I wonder if I create my own anxiety. Like if I didn’t hear about ‘waiting’ I wouldn’t think of myself as such and worry about when it might happen.
Feel free to add your own similar questions in the responses =]

Do you remember how you found this site? This is kinda funny. Last summer, I actually googled “jealous of friends engagements” or something similar and a bunch of threads on weddingbee came up. I became addicted! lol
How has it changed your perspective on relationships/engagements? Do you think you’re better or worse off for it? I think I’m better off because of it. I was going nuts in my own head about my impatients and watching others get engaged. At the time, I didn’t have any other friends to talk to. However, I do find myself on there a lot! Part of me wonders if I would be thinking about it as much as I am because of the bee. Overall, def. helpful being able to rant to you guys!

I found this website when googleing “why doesn’t he propose” topics. I guess I didn’t know the term “waiting” but I was already doing it…

- Wedding: January 2013 - Harbourfront Grand Hall
@Kat_Kit2000: I signed up with The Knot after getting engaged and they were always talking about how WB was so lovey dovey and wouldn’t correct anyone if their etiquette was blatantly wrong. So when I got sick of all the posters being bitches I moved over here!

I ran into this site in 2009 while looking for advice on my first engagement. I didn’t join the site. However, I lurked until this year and rejoined when my SO and I started talking about marriage.
This site has helped me realize how many women think the way that I do, and has helped me collaborate with those who think much more uniquely than I do when it comes to marriage. Its helped me find friends. I don’t have any here in my new city, so I just come here and hang out. I really like everything from the blogs, to the different ads. Its just a really cool site 🙂 I’m on here more than im on Facebook or Twitter lol So that says a lot.

seach engine… looking for wedding websites. I knew he had the ring and was about to propose.
It was useful to me in explaining the thinking behind some aspects of modern bridal culture that I found very unintuitive (e.g., engagement photos that are not of the proposal). Understanding the reasoning behind those things better helped me decide once and for all whether they were “for us” or not, so it helped us figure out what we want to do for our wedding.
It made me much more aware of what ways our relationship and ways of seeing the world were different than others in the US (most bees are from the US). It really makes me be aware of the diversity of US culture.
