Hmm I’m quiet irl but not so much on here though I have a hard time replying when someone replies to me ๐Ÿ˜› I just overthink “what if I come off rude or sound dumb and junk ๐Ÿ˜›

I lurk here daily, sometimes hourly! When I got a case of wedding/engagement/baby fever I come here and read through threads and it helps a lot! ๐Ÿ™‚ I am neither from the UK nor from the US so i can not really relate to most of the wedding traditions and expectations through …

Me!!! Hello fellow lurkers.  I’ve lurked almost daily since we got engaged in September, finally made an account in October, waited a couple weeks to post and still lurk daily but rarely post.  I love the advice I get on here but feel like a lot of times I have nothing of value to add to the conversation.  I do however vote in every single poll I see ๐Ÿ™‚

@lilchicana:  That’s me, exactly! Once I posted a topic and when no one responded after an hour or two, I just deleted it, haha!

Me! I lurked for a long time before I posted anything. I’ve been posting a lot more recently but I’d say about 75% of the time, I write out a response and then delete it. 

There are a few other forums that I lurk at, including one horse-y one where I would be terrified to post anything on! They are vultures.

Me! Well actually I’m a lot more shy in real life then i am on here but I type up and delete my posts most of the time. I usually I wonder how many people are going to hate me or think i’m a loser. Which i’m sure many people do but im used to it. It makes me happy if anyone ever agrees with me – which doesn’t happen often. I’m not like most girls on here and i’m pretty opinionated. Actually I’m sure most people on here wish I was more of a lurker.

I just started a thread for the first time in ages, and now I’m really nervous!  I’m worried that everything will be fine, people will be being polite, but then I’ll walk away for a couple of hours and come back to find it’s morphed into a heated mess.  I really shouldn’t post on the Internet, it’s terrible for my anxiety levels!

I am totally this as well – and don’t feel weird for being on the boards pre-engagement, I found this site after DH took me to shop for rings and six months later we were engaged!
