(Closed) Do other bees negative opinions about e-rings (like yours) upset you?

posted 4 years ago in Rings
  • poll: Do you get upset if another bee says something that could be taken as criticism on your e-ring?

    Yes, I get sad/angry, so I say something just as hurtful back!

    No, I don't care at all. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion. I know what I like.

    A little. But the negative thoughts gets "stuck" deep inside, and I think about them often.

    Negative comments on Weddingbee have affected my ring choice!

    Yes, and I let them know that it hurt me!

    I have cried because of what someone said on weddingbee.

    Comments on weddingbee have changed the way I look at my own ring! (In a negative way!)

    I am ashamed of showing my ring on weddingbee.

    I just laugh at criticism!

    I didn’t even cry after my divorce so I’m a special kinda human so this is said with a grain of fault..if strangers make you THAT upset over an opinion, then you’re not good at life.

    Not at all. I adore my ring and nothing will change that, especially not the opinion of people on the bee. I know my taste isn’t for everyone just like everyone else’s isn’t for me. 

    I agree with PPs who said it’s different to dislike something and specifically state your negative opinion about it without prompting.

    If someone doesn’t like my ring, that is fine with me. I love it and think it’s gorgeous.

    I used threads from the ‘Bee for inspiration when we were beginning the ring search process.

    I haven’t gotten any negative feedback on my rings (they don’t really fall under any categories that are automatic no gos on the ‘Bee) but I also waited to begin posting until I was very solid with my choice because I saw a few bee swarms and I didn’t want to find myself in one.

    Could not care less. The internet is not that important. If someone said they hate my ring and it’s the most hideous thing they’ve seen then I wouldn’t care. I’m the one who has to wear it and I love it so that’s all that matters.

    bibilicious :  In all honesty, I haven’t got very much in common with most of the bees that are constant users on the boards.  As such, I don’t put a lot of stock in their opinions on things I like because our taste just doesn’t match.  There are rings here I hate – I just keep my mouth shut.  There are weddings I think are ridiculously excessive – I let other bees comment on those boards and move on.  I almost never get compliments on my ring.  It doesn’t suit most of the bees to the point where either they secretly hate it or they are just indifferent to it and have nothing to say (which is how I feel about rings in general anyway).  So maybe secretly disapointed people don’t swoon over my ring most of the time on the bee (or in reality), but it won’t change my personal opinion about it, which is that it’s freaking awesome smile

    My engagement set. I know there are Bees that adore heart shaped diamonds and some hate them. I don’t care what someone else says and I haven’t had any rudeness addressed to me personally, however, some of the things I’ve seen/read on here have escalated into sheer madness! I mean c’mon, whatever happened to”if you don’t have anything nice to say then say nothing at all”? IJS

    1cat :  haha…imagine my surprise to read that as a proud owner of a marquise diamond ring! I’d unwittingly committed a faux pas by wearing a vag on my finger!!!

    I’ve read more threads than commented on them, and learned a ton. My ring is my taste, I love it! But I recognize that while it’s a nod to the halo style, it’s definitely “not in fashion”. It doesn’t bother me! But I’ve learned about moissanite enough to buy my own, and from the bee learned about Berricle too. Now I’m ordering less expensive rings to stack and swap out while I search for the perfect right hand stack. 😀 it’s been fun learning about what’s in style, I’ve learned while I love my blingy ring, I also love solitaires with a stack.

    anyone coming to a forum and not expecting 1) miscommunication and/or misunderstanding and 2) disagreement hasn’t spent much time online. It comes with a forum. The texted word doesn’t convey what the spoken word with inflection intonation and body language does. Words said in jest are easily taken as serious and cause hurt feelings. In addition, talking to complete strangers does give people safety to say things they wouldn’t normally say to a friend/family member. Just what I’ve observed :). In general, this board is very friendly. I’ve seen extremely few trolls! So that’s why I stick around. Well that and ring porn.

    Couldn’t possibly give any less flying fucks about what anyone think about my ring. Online or IRL. If they compliment it, well thank you very much, otherwise who the hell cares.

    The worst I’ve heard about my wedding set is that my band has chunky diamonds and that’s not really a problem to cry about 😎
