Many fair points. But I disagree with ‘using the hive wrong’ causing relationship issues. The fact is, being on a wedding website where 90% of posts are wedding related, when you’re waiting for a proposal, makes you think about weddings more than NOT being on a wedding website. The Hive is a disproportionate representation of the population.

That’s not the Hive’s fault. But to say that being affected by being completed immersed in wedding chat is the user’s fault and avoidable, I disagree with. For many, leaving the Hive IS the best option.

What a great thread!!  I think this could definitely help a few waiting bees out.

And I agree that if you are waiting for your SO to propose it is probably a bad idea to go straight to the wedding parts.  I was a waiting bee here a few years ago (for an ex boyfriend) and I would be in the ring and dress forums all. the. time.  It didn’t help me focus on what was important; it just showed me what I wanted but couldn’t have.  This waiting time around I’m in a much better frame of mind (a better boyfriend helps, lol) and can still enjoy those threads without letting them overwhelm me.

@veryberry13:  Great thread and I agree!! I’ve said it before, but since I’ve joined I’ve been more relaxed (still excited but like you said, I’m ok waiting for my SO because I konw he wants it and he’s working on it).  I also try my best to stick to the waiting boards…but it is fun to glance at the proposal section too 🙂

anyway…thanks!!

I love this!! I’m a waiting bee. We have a timeline, but I definitely think I can improve on the SIU aspect. Great points!
