 I am glad you are so happy, but if everyone felt the way you do then the waiting board wouldn’t have such a negative imagine ykwim? So you can’t really say ” we “, you can only say ” I “. Hopefully every Waiting bee gets to the place of happiness and exitement that you are at, the time before engagement CAN be such a fun time.

@mixtapehearts:  I do get what you’re saying, but the other side of that is you need to remember that you’re only seeing a tiny portion of the relationship!  Just because someone comes on the waiting board to vent doesn’t mean they aren’t blissfully happy the other 99% of the time!

Agreed!

Also, I feel like the waiting board has actually been pretty positive lately. At least as far as the waiting bees go.

OP: I felt like that when I was waiting too! ๐Ÿ™‚

The excitement that can come while waiting is like waiting for Christmas as a kid (or any other relateable holiday if Christmas isn’t celebrated by you). Makes me giddy sometimes, like right now! Eeee!

@MissBoPeep:  Well some of the posts here are so downright sad, how can you not feel sad reading it? Waiting can be such a fun, happy time and I just wish everyone got to experience that. I didn’t wait long, but the time leading up to when I knew I would be getting engaged brings a smile to my face remembering all the exitement and anticipation. I just want that for all Bees.

@Seashells7:  Agreed! Sometimes I feel the waiting boards are being looked at in a negative way and I find myself sometimes not wanting to post because of it. Everyone waits at some point!

@mixtapehearts:  But there are sad posts on the other boards too. Some brides had some really sad stressful posts before their wedding, but everything came together and they’re happy as can be.

I don’t pity you. I think you have an awesome attitude. ๐Ÿ™‚

@DeadlyNightshade:  True. But there are posts from people just having a hard day and posts from people where you are like ” Whoa. red flags!” It’s like that on every board. There are some waiting bees I want to shake and be like ” No! Don’t accept this BS treatment!” because their man not asking is a symptom of a problem. Waiting in and of itself is not a problem. Does that make sense? 

 

ETA: Where have I judged? I thought this conversation was just that- a convo. No judgement from me.

Let’s not start this into another discussion/debate/whatever you wanted to call it about the waiting board. That one was closed for good reason.
