Hello fellow waiting bees!
I have found myself completely obsessed with this site in the past few weeks, and finally after much embarassment and sneaking around decided to confess my addiction to my boyfriend. The conversation went surprisingly well…
Me: “I have something to tell you. This is really hard for me.”
Boyfriend or Best Friend: “What is it?”
Me: “….I can’t.”
Boyfriend or Best Friend stops watching soccer game (veryyyyyyyy rare for a German man).
Me: “I can’t hide it anymore. I’m addicted to this site.”
Boyfriend or Best Friend: “Is it porn??
Me: “You can call it that. It’s a kind of girl porn.”
Boyfriend or Best Friend: “WHAT IS IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!”
Me: “It’s called weddingbee.com.
Takes a while to sink in because of language difference. Eventually he bursts out laughing.
Anyways, he ends up telling me to register and have fun!…So here I am.
I am a waiting bee. We know we want to get married, but need to get through out Masters first, plus there is the added complication of not knowing where we will end up living/getting married, etc. in the near future. I am Canadian and he is German, and we are now living in Berlin.
Just wanted to officially introduce myself to all of yous waiting with me and I’m so excited to finally be ‘out of the closet’ so to speak!

@International: Bahaha that’s hilarous! I did the same thing at first – made sure to delete my internet history, etc. But the other day my secret finally came out. SO said “I was looking through your phone the other day and I found a site you were on.”
I immediately blurted out “Oh no! You found out about Weddingbee!”
Apparently he actually saw my Pinterest and thought it was cute. We then looked at Weddingbee so he could see what it was (he just laughed and said he was glad I had an “outlet” for my thoughts).
But way to blow my own cover lol. It feels so good to have the secret out!

I’m not willing to admit I frequent the site yet… long live google chrome incognito. But I do watch “Say Yes to the Dress” and “Four Weddings” on TLC every Friday with SO in the same room.

Ha! I thought I was the only one who was uber sneaky about it.
We are hilarious, ladies. 🙂

Haha I’m not sneaky about it at all. Whenever I’m on my phone my SO asks me if I’m on “The Weddingbee” again! Lol!

I was sneaky about it at first, too, but now I talk about and even show my SO weddingbee. He thinks it’s kind of cool (or at least humors me about it, like he does pinterest).

Yes! I had a very similar conversation with my SO, and we’re planning on moving to the EU (probably Germany or Austria depending on where I go to grad school). You are so lucky that you’re already able to be living there but if I get into my dream school waiting over here will be worth it.
I still have 1-3 years of waiting… so the bee has been a blessing!

This is funny! Glad he didn’t seem to mind 🙂 I tell SO I’m on “that” site, where they have wedding and relationship stuff. But I don’t dare tell him what it is called in case he would find my posts!
