I hate when Bees want help choosing a ring, a dress, a shoe, what have you but there aren’t any embedded pics, just links. Download and upload pics! Gee whiz.
I also hate when there isn’t a poll accompanying the “help me choose” posts.
I hate misleading title posts too, like “SO is going to a strip club for his bachelor party. Help!” Then you click on the thread and the Bee is just bragging about not caring about strip clubs (not a real post, as far as I know. Just an example).
I hate when someone starts a poll, gets great input, then never follows up on their own post.
What are your pet peeves? Let’s keep this light. This is for fun since complaining is fun 😉

I need pictures! I can’t help you decide without pictures!!
Post # 4
I need an “all of the above” option on the poll.

@OldMrsMcDonald: lol, I hear ya, but Bees love the “other” option.

@IheartUFC: “What do you think of this situation?” post followed by OP responding to each and every response with “It’s my wedding! I don’t care what you think!” Um… then don’t ask for opinions, missy.

@MexiPino: Yep, that’s definitely annoying.
I just thought of another one: polls with the obligatory stupid option. “I like shiny things!” “I love polls!” Etc. And Bees choose those stupid responses! That’s the second worst part (the worst part being having the stupid option in the first place).

@IheartUFC: I don’t like the rude/sarcastic replies when bees are looking for real advice! Seems people have more guts in an online forum than in real life.

@IheartUFC: “but there aren’t any embedded pics, just links. Download and upload pics! Gee whiz.”
In fairness, some sites are copyright so you can’t (or you’re not meant to).
I don’t like posts which say, “Wedding Bee is horrible, why can’t we all be nice?” but doesn’t give any specifics of alleged nastiness. Or did I just do the same thing? 🙂

Posts where the OP is supposedly asking for advice about a situation, but flies off the handle at anyone who offers an opinion different to his/her own.
Posters who get offended that a potentially sensitive topic is being discussed, even if everyone in the thread is airing their views respectfully.

@little_d: Oh yes, that is very off putting. Bees that are opposed to porn or strip clubs get the worst of it. The Bees swarm and tell her how insecure, immature, and unrealistic she is, then tell her she doesn’t trust her man. I personally don’t care about porn (staunchly opposed to strip clubs, however) but I can definitely understand why some women are opposed to porn. It’s so obnoxious when Bees act like the OP should have the same views he/she has.

@IheartUFC: I can’t stand the “could I be pregnant” posts that describe all these symptoms that could be pms or pregnancy or nothing but the poster hasn’t tested. Every time I have to exercise self control to not reply “have you had sex? Yes? Then theoretically you could be pregnant”

Oh I’m not a fan of posts like such: “OMG my boyf bought a ring and he’s been acting so weird and practicing on one knee do u think he’s going to propose????”. Basically anything that is so super obvious, but the poster just wants congrats.

Posts more than a couple of paragraphs. I don’t really care what anybody has to say that much, lol. Condense it down or I won’t read it!
Posts that referense wiki I think we all know what it is, plus it isn’t really that reliable.
Pretty much any post asking “why would people do xyz in their relationship”. If it works for the couple without anyone being hurt who cares?
