    @Kat_Kit2000:  I came here due to waiting frustrations.

    I got my a$$ handed to me the first few posts I wrote as bees questioned if I wanted to have a wedding or wanted to marry my SO…and if he wanted to marry me.

    I took a few breaks, got therapy, read relationship/self help books, talked to people…changed my outlook, came back to the Hive…and it’s honestly been a wonderful support group

    >sometimes more than my therapist can provide because of all of the different perspectives on here IMO Wink .

    I joined the Hive January of 2013 a confused bee…and I lurked for about 6 months before that.

    I plan to be here for a while….I’m a waiting bee, but I can’t wait to be an engaged/wedding bee, then married bee, then TTC bee….this place is wonderful.  A place where I can really be honest even if I’m wrong–I can find my way without (hopefully) runing my relationships with people IRL.

    Sorry so long!!  I’m feeling very chatty/typie tonight or something lol Tongue Out It’s like this in all my posts!!

    Hmmm… I think I joined shortly after my engagement, so probably somewhere around 1.5 years?

    February this year, to vent my waiting frustrations! I don’t come one so much now I have a bit of sparkly 😛 I am a super-chilled engaged bee, wedding planning is not fazing me at all and the big things are already sorted 🙂

    Two years, I joined a couple of months before we got engaged, when we were seriously talking about engagement. So in January I will have been engaged for two years.

    • Wedding: October 2010

    I joined in 2009 when I got engaged.  Married in 2010.  Although a lot of Bees come and go, I really like the ladies here.  I like to think that maybe I might be able to offer them some advice and perspective now that I have gone through the wedding process and am a mom.

    I have been here since June 2011, when I first got engaged… so about 2.5 years. I have my moments where I back off and don’t post as much and times when I post a lot– overall I enjoy this community!
