I’m curious about how many of your SOs are aware of WeddingBee and the time you spend here. My Boyfriend or Best Friend does not know – I’m making a conscious effort not to push the wedding stuff (letting him plan the proposal and do it when he’s ready) and I just feel like he wouldn’t get my interest in wedding stuff when I’m not actually planning yet.
How about you?

I talk about it, but for the most part I think he tunes me out. We are in the midst of wedding planning, so it is obvious that I talk about wedding stuff. However, I try to limit how much I talk about it on a daily basis, so I won’t drive him nuts!

Yeah I talk about it all the time. I’m like “check out this thread, it’s hilarious” or “this is how I feel, check this out” and I’ll actually link him or show him the thread. Sometimes I’ll talk to him about threads that blow up.

Me: Hey baby, I found a great way to talk engagement & wedding without having to pester you all the time for details.
Him: Oh, really. And what’s that?
Me: Well, that’s my secret now, isn’t it. You have your engagement secrets and I have mine.
Him: Okay then.

It used to be a secret until he busted me on it too many times haha. He doesn’t know details, like the actual website name or my screen name- thank god!! He did something stupid in the kitchen the other day (splashed spaghetti sauce all over on purpose after I asked him to be careful) then he realized it was a jerk move and was like “are you going to tell your internet friends?” lol.

I’ve told him I’m on a girly-ish forum, and sometimes I’ll mention stuff from here. He avoids looking at it when he sees I have it up.

As far as he’s concerned, it’s my “relationship talk” message board. I told him it was a “girly” place where women come to talk about their relationships/lives/jobs/families/whatever. Which, when you think about it, is all true – I’ve just conveniently left out that it’s a board devoted mainly to wedding talk. Once we’re actually engaged, I’ll probably let the cat out of the bag, but for now he doesn’t need to know how much time I am spending chatting and daydreaming and collecting ideas. 🙂

Yep. I don’t talk about it all the time, but there have been a lot of “check out this neat idea I saw on Wedding Bee.” And “The Rock Huggers” are our letterbox names too!

While he knows about it, he doesn’t actually know the name of the site I’m browsing ALL the time for inspiration. He sees me on the page everyday.
I also don’t want him to in case he gets bored, looks it up and sees pictures and comments I’ve made that I want to be secret until the wedding. (Dress, garter, grooms cake, grooms gift).

He doesn’t know about it. He always trying to look at my laptop to see what I looking at but I close it and don’t let him see anything. This is my outlet right now.

My SO knows. lol It kind of randomly came up in conversation, and I had to divulge everything. He knows I mainly hang out on the Not Wedding Related boards, and generally just love socializing 🙂 But now he knows who I am on here and probably lurks my posts.
I came home the other day and he had a bath and candles ready for me 🙂 We relaxed and talked about the day, then he says “So I was on that Bee thing today.” lol And I said “Oh yea?” and he goes “Yea, it’s cute.” haha

Well I do not say “OMG I saw this thing on WeddingBee” but he has looked over my shoulder at least a dozen times and seen me on here or seen it come up as a top site in our computer history haha (well his computer….but I always steel his Mac to use coz its cooler).
So the other day I found him on here! I was like what are you DOING! He was like “I wanted to check it out, you are on here all the time”..haha
Sometimes I show him cute stuff from the blogs now. Other times he will ask me jokingly if im on WB and tease me about it.

Well he didn’t, but I used to talk about ‘the site’ so much until he got the name out of me. I guess he didn’t like the idea that I could keep a secret.
Now he probably regrets it cause its all I could talk about.
ETA: He doesn’t know my screen name though, thank goodness

He takes the mick out of me for it but I think he likes me doing it as it saves him having loads of wedding talk.
