(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!

    bibilicious :  Every time I read what some Bees consider small, I think they would classify my ring as ‘microscopic’. And it’s a cluster…..oh dear. But seriously, I always keep in mind that Australian ring styles and common sizes differ greatly from the US, and I love my ring so opinions are irrelevant.

    people have said stuff that rings like mine are ‘everyday, unspecial, worthless, juvinile’ it just makes me laugh because I garantee I hate their ring too – the people that talk down about my taste usually have the most shockingly gaudy, flashy, rediculous taste (I mean there use to be a thread on another american website and it might be culture difference but their rings and attitude about them where the most disgusting thing id seen ragarding materialism) but theres no point saying it back people can clearly see for themselves

    someones engagement ring doesnt effect strangers at all and weather others like it or not is irrelivent so its not something opinion need to be voiced to the person about (save you battles for things that actually matter)

    llevinso :  Sometimes people say really catty things on ring boards, even in the context of a compliment! Such as, “Neat ring! It’s so 80s!!”

    I don’t know these broads, so IDGAF. Even if someone IRL doesn’t like my ring, IDGAF. I love it, I wear it, the end.

    I like you guys… but i give zero fucks about anyone elses opinions when it comes to my personal style. If you make real life choices to impress a message board you have problems!

    I don’t care what any stranger on the internet or even what people in my real life think about my ring. I also don’t care about what people think about my clothes, job, , make up , style or preferences in general. I’m not saying I lack all social undertstanding. Yes if I go to a job interview I dress in a way I think the interviewer will like. I guess what I’m saying is that I do not put too much stock in what other ppl think about my clothing or jewelry. If you are not my man it does not matter what you think about my appearance. I have always had ppl gush about my ring in person but I’m also of the thought that 

    1. I don’t give unsocilted advice/ opinions on people’s style, appearance or personal preferences

    2. If I don’t have anything nice to say I keep quiet. Why is my opinion more important than that if the person wearing said items ( just a hint it’s not)

    Im generally pretty annoyed by ppl who feel their dislike for others personal style is so vitally important that they will spontaneously combust if they don’t share. Who’s to say I’m the ultimate authority on what is attractive or beautiful or that my standards are the only reliable ones. I’m glad we all like different rings clothes ect. Also variety is the spice of life and the idea that I would have the same ring as a million other ppl made my head hurt. Let’s keep liking different things and going on with life.

    Of course I’ve seen general comments about my ring style that people don’t like. But I’ve also never posted my ring because I don’t really care if people like it or not. I knew the style I wanted before I even met my DH and I still love it. I read a lot of the ring posts but rarely comment because I don’t like most of the rings I see. It’s just a difference in style and that’s okay, no one should get upset about it.

    cmsgirl :  Ha, my RHR that has a marquise has been called a tilted/bedazzled vagina. As a proud owner of a real (untilted/unbedazzled) vagina, and who sees nothing wrong with vaginas, I am still trying to understand if that is supposed to be insulting. Plus, I think they are confused about the female anatomy. Anyway, I love my RHR so whatever. Vagina power ring.

     

    To answer OP: don’t care what people think of my rings. Here or in real life. I am way past the time of my life where I worry much about what others think. I wear them for me, and well, I like my rings 🙂

    I do find it hilarious that in this thread there are people who can’t say they don’t care without adding in they’d hate the gaudy ugly rings those critics wear anyway.

    crackerjax :  I recognize “dingleberry” as the pet name a particular Youtuber uses for thier fans. I don’t think it means anything beyond that but I could totally be wrong. 

    EDIT EDIT EDIT

    I just Googled it. It is an insult. And it’s a gross insult. And now I’m wondering why someone would call thier fans that, lol. The person that said that about the girls ring is a dingleberry.

    Nope. 

    But I generally don’t care what other people think about anything anyway, besides my husband and my loved ones.  And my boss, but only because I have to care what he thinks.  The rest of them, I couldn’t give a rip.

    To each her own. I have seen some pretty awful rings on this forum but as long as the bride is happy. it’s her business. I am convinced a few ladies take what their Fiance gives them even if they don’t like them.
