I’m suspicious for many reasons, but chiefly ” I’m a long time lurker”
On weddingbee? why? who was op thinking of marrying while she was lurking for so long? the bf who has been making her miserable? The proposal from the client came out of the blue, so that can’t be it.
Also, some of our replies may have seemed mean, but from what I read, OP left her live in Boyfriend or Best Friend to fly off to Paris with another man, and if she broke up with him and moved out first, I didnt see that mentioned here. This from someone who says she’s “not a cheater”. We’re a forum of married and engaged women, we dont take kindly to that kind of stuff.
If genuine, this wasnt a thread asking for advice on what to do, it was one asking for permission from a bunch of strangers to do what she’d alread decided to do.
Anywho… back to real life

I consider myself a semi-lurker now. I signed up a loooong time ago because I thought my then-boyfriend would propose soon (he cheated on me instead and ran away with the new chick) and I’ve stayed on because it’s something to do when I’m bored at work. And I got to turn to the bees for advice this past week and everyone was super helpful/supportive, so even if I’m not waiting/engaged/married, I still enjoy this site 🙂
I’m super curious about this story though. If she’s fake, whatever. But if she’s real and actually went to Paris with that guy…. I hope she’s ok :/

Idk, lurking before thinking about your own wedding is totally plausible. I lurked on Weddingbee long before my boyfriend and I started seriously talking about marriage. I came across the site during a Google search (I was attending a friend’s wedding and was looking up something about gift-giving etiquette), and I just got caught up in reading all the stories on the site.

No need of staying in a dead-end relationship. But that doesn’t mean you have to marry the other one. Just date him and enjoy spending time with him, then see if he’s someone you want to marry a little later down the line.

Her profile says LMT, which would be a massage therapist. So, I guess he’s a massage client.

Wow…I am a massage therapist and I make nowhere NEAR $100,000 (I don’t even make a quarter of that) a year. Not to mention that we aren’t allowed to associate with clients outside of work, (unless of course we were friends with them before starting a therapist/client relationship), and we’re not supposed to have any kind of relationship with them for at least six months after ending a professional relationship with a client. What she is doing is BEYOND unethical.
ETA: I don’t think this is a real story, but IF it is, the OP needs to tell me where she’s working so I can make that kind of money, too.

Maybe she gives “happy endings”

@Regina Phalange: Maybe she gives “happy endings”
LMAO! I didn’t take the job for the money, I took it to help people. But apparently I need to consider lowering my standards and apply at Bubba’s Big House Of Rubbin’.

At the same time, if I was the original OP I would respond and defend myself because by her not responding, it just makes it that much more suspicious and obvious that she got caught in a lie.

This is one of the most interesting threads I’ve read! *Subscribes*

You mean everything I read on the internet isn’t true?!!!

She’s obviously not responding because she’s on a spontaneous last minute trip to Paris having the time of her life celebrating the proposal from a super romantic guy she enjoys spending time with instead of crying over some deadbeat douche that is a jerk to her! And I refuse to think otherwise!!!
Any massage therapists watch the Client List w/ Jennifer Love Hewitt??? 🙂

@futuremrsk18: Any massage therapists watch the Client List w/ Jennifer Love Hewitt??? 🙂
Actually, no. The ABMP was actually trying to get them to not air it, and I signed a petition supporting the decision to do so. The network basically said, “Oh well. We don’t care.” MTs are trying to get our profession seen as legitmate health care, and movies like this do nothing but set that back for us. Massage Therapy is still seen as one step above prostitute by many people. Thanks Jennifer Love Hewitt, I will know no longer knowingly watch anything you are in. Not trying to threadjack, sorry, (though this ones seems pretty off the rails already), but had to respond to that comment.
