Just wondering how many waiting bees are posting here on this forum without their SO’s knowledge (I imagine it’s quite a few) and if so, what would you do if your SO found your posts? Personally i have no idea what i would do, crawl in a hole and die perhaps LOL!

@katie8759: My SO knows that I post on here, BUT I made it a point to show him that WB is not just wedding-related stuff. I actually find the Careers, Books, Fitness, and overall Relationship stuff quite entertaining/informative. I feel that the internet is lacking in terms of general life message boards for women, hence WB helps fill that void for me. As long as you make it clear that you are not some wedding/marriage-obsessed Bridezilla, your SO shouldn’t have a problem with you frequenting the site. Just my .02.

SO doesn’t know about the Bee, but I tell him stories that I find on here sometimes. If he asked me I’d tell him, and he would probably call me crazy 🙂 If he found my posts I would probably be a little embarrassed but I try not to put anything out on the internet that I wouldn’t say in public.

I don’t go out of my way to hide it from him (I know he’s seen the boards open on my computer), but I haven’t shoved it in his face, either. I’ve been treating it the way I do my other waiting-anxiety-coping-outlets; circumspect, but not hidden.

He knows I post on here, he’s thankful my over excitement is away from him and on this board and on the phone with my mom. He knows the wait is hard since we have decided on the time (this Christmas) together and he knows I just want to tell EVERYONE ALL THE TIME. ARGH. The bee is keeping me sane.

He’s seen me on it but I’m not sure what he thinks about it…like maybe he thinks I’m only looking and commenting on my best friends posts? He doesn’t seem to care really. LOL

He knows, but he doesn´t read any of it.

My Fiance doesn’t really care. He has seen me on it and I have read him a few stories but I am not worried he will look me up and start reading my posts.

Yup, I post here in secret because I don’t think he would understand the concept of having a “waiting” support group lol. Once we’re engaged, I don’t mind him knowing because I can just tell him I’m on here to get wedding ideas.

My SO doesn’t know that I’m on here and I’d rather like to keep it that way, but if he found out and saw my posts I don’t think it would be too big of a deal since he knows where I stand on all or most of this.

Yup, it is totally a secret to my Boyfriend or Best Friend and I would like to keep it that way! I think it’d be really awkward if he found out!

@kandykane1: Same here!
I come here to share my stories with others who may be going through or has gone through the same problems/dilemmas that I have. It is also nice to get a fresh perspective on things. As I stated above, I would completely die if he were to read my posts – however after we get engaged (one day perhaps) all bets are off and I would have no problems at all with him reading or finding anything I have posted here.

My Fiance reads weddingbee too! so no definitely not secret. He and i love reading different topics to each other and discussing. He loves to troll me about being on the site too much though. fun times.

No, he knows I’m here. I’m new to the bee but he knows I visit a lot of wedding sites and message boards. I haven’t said anything he would have an issue with.
