I would say to join in on the chats and in general just be yourself.  Like any other friendship, it just takes time.  If you find someone interesting or you have something in common, don’t be afraid to PM them.

I’m fairly new…only a month and a half on the boards. The girls in San Jose are coordinating a meetup as a way to make some ‘bee’ friends. I also signed up for the card swap and look for things in common to connect on when responding to a post πŸ™‚

I don’t have any Bee friends yet either.  But i think a common wedding detail would help Bee’s become friends.  Like if there is a Bee who has a common theme as yours and you help each other out.  or maybe Bee’s who share your wedding date? maybe check out the April 2012 boards, I bet you’d make some Bee friends there! Good Luck!

I like @tksjewelry:‘s advice. Just be yourself, post a bit more and even in the chat threads that don’t count towards your ‘post count.’ You’ll find bees that you’ve got things in common with or the same ideas about wedding things or life in general, and then when you see them posting on the board you’re more likely to join in πŸ™‚ I don’t know that I’ve got any bee-besties since I’m still sort of new-ish yet, but there are plenty of great gals on here that I love to keep up with. 

ETA- other helpful bees posted while I was typing, and I like their advice too. Commonality goes a long way, in online friendships as well as real life. *For example, there aren’t too many ND bees or March 2012 gals, but I like my night owls :-)*

@SandAndSea: I agree with both

@tksjewelry:

@pink.sequins:

I think you just need to be yourself, join in on some chats, and spark conversations with people you have common interests with. It will fall into place πŸ™‚

@SandAndSea:  You are always more than welcome to PM me anytime.  I am usually on later at night so sometimes I can’t respond until late.  There is a chat going on right now, jump on, the Night Shift ladies are awesome and always very welcoming.

@SandAndSea: You just gotta put yourself out there and see what happens. I think you’ll find it’s fun to open up a little deeper discussion with someone via PM πŸ™‚ Go for it!

@SandAndSea: Yeah, that’s the compromise to keep the chat threads going on the WB. They let them grow to monstrous lengths while we gibberjabber away, then delete the thread (and the posts you racked up) in a day or two. I like it since there’s not really a chat room alternative. Come on over πŸ™‚

feel free to PM me, too! I don’t have any defined bee friends (I don’t think?) but there are definitely some bees I find myself responding to often and bumping into on threads. I like to think that they are my bee friends πŸ™‚

I am always open to making more friends!
