    I fall in the second category.  Sometimes I look over and he has a wry smile on his face and goes “Are you a Bee, Aimee?”  He thinks its pretty funny that I come on these sites and wonders aloud what I’m going to do with all of my time after the wedding (which usually leads to suggestive comments LOL).

    I’m category B. It was an absolute secret until we got engaged and even a bit after, but now I’m fairly open with the fact that he better not look at my iPad screen when I’m looking at wedding stuff.

    I’m in between A and B. I tell him stories, but he never looks at it with me! Some of the stuff on here (like the girl who found a leg in the woods!) is just too good not to share!

    I’ll occasionally tell him funny stories from the Bees or read him ridiculous drama threads.  He finds it amusing.  But mostly, it is more just my thing.

    I tell him some of the more hilarious board posts, but he doesn’t care that I stalk the recaps board!

    i am in between B and C… he knows i am here and if i get sucked into a particularly crazy thread i might tell him about it but i dont want him looking here and finding my posts etc. i like have a place where i can be a bride-ish as i want and not have to risk boring FI or my friends to death. i want to keep the bee just for me. and you ladies of course.

    It’s not really a secret-secret, because I tell him about things I see on here, and I’ve sent him links to a few things I’ve found on other wedding sites, but I’ve never actually come out and said “I visit weddingbee almost every single day”. I feel a little silly about it, but I’d tell him if he asked obviously.

    @abbie017:  Same. Funnies I share with him, but not much else.

    I tell him some stories, and then he will just look at me and nod. Then I do the same thing to him when he starts talking about his card games. lol.

    Occasionally I’ll read out a story to him, but otherwise it’s ‘my’ thing, just like The Escapist is his thing.  He knows I’m totally obsessed by this, and by blogging both wedding things and recipes.

    Sometimes I tell him stuff if I found it very interesting but he knows I love this site and generally refers to it as the “ignore FI site” lol

    Haha.  Mr CL literally just asked me what my username was.  I told him I posted a photo of him in his new wedding suit, and he wanted to check out what people were saying about him!

    He knows I go on and I’ll occasionally share something funny with him.  Last night I told him about the girl who’s FMIL gave her the ex-wife’s photo album and about pictures I saw of Mrs. Mink’s wedding.

    I’m somewhere between A and B.  He knows I’m on here just about every day, and I share some of the more dramatic stories with him.  I also told him about my ring twins and how they both PM’d me for advice!
