I’m leaving the board. When I first joined everyone was very helpful, supportive, etc. But lately for some reason there has been a lot of snarkinessrudeness. We all joined the waiting board for one reason: Because we think that our time will be coming shortly and we want a place to pour our hearts out. Yes, I realize that I ask for opinions and advice, but there’s no need to be rude.
And yes, I realize that I analyse things a lot (it’s just who I am) but we’re ALL waiting and we ALL have the same thoughts. Some women post those thoughts, and some don’t. I just so happen to pour my heart out about the things that go through my mind, and unfortunely things have been turning sour with each post.
Thank you to all who were polite, and gave great advice. You girls are amazing, and I hope your wait ends soon… Hang in there!

I’m really sorry to see you go, Gwen. I hope you’ll come back soon, and maybe the hive won’t be so crazy. I wish you all the best, and I hope your proposal comes quickly!

I also analyse alot, so I understand how you feel. Dont let the snarkiness get to you Gwen, I am sure J has something up his sleeve!!

@PinkBubbleGum: You’re welcome.
It just bothers me because despite what people have said, J and I have a very strong and healthy relationship. I’ve been screwed over once before, so I can’t help it if I over analyze things sometimes. And I don’t have the time nor the patience to listen to others talk negatively about our relationship.
P.S.~ Anyone know how to delete your profile? Can’t seem to find it anywhere!

@Gwen von D: You have to ask a moderator to delete it for you under the support board.
I’m sorry to see you go. I haven’t been on the waiting boards a lot here, but people can get really mean about it :(. Congratulations on your impending engagement, though!

Sorry to see you go Gwen. I know the waiting boards can be a touchy subject and it’s a shame some people can’t just not read them. I hope your proposal comes soon and that you’ll come back to share your planning with us! Take care hon!

I’m sorry to see you go Gwen 🙁 I’m new on here but from what I’ve seen you always gave great advice. I hope your wait is over soon and you’ll share your proposal with us. We’ll miss you around here *hugs*

Gwen, I’m sorry, I shall not be all sugar and spice. I’m going to tell you to put on your big girl panties and NOT CARE what people on an INTERNET BOARD think about you and J. Of course for those of us who have done the waiting game, we understand the need to obsess a little bit. I didn’t dump on WB but you best believe I did dump somewhere else. ON ALL MY FRIENDS. God, who knows what they thought about me? I love reading about you and J. I know you do tend to overanalyze but at least you have something to analyze (I didn’t!!) So please, don’t let people get to you. Keep posting your stuff. One day, we too will be “oohing” and “ahhhing” over your ring bling posts 🙂

@Gwen von D: Aww, Gwen I am sad to see you go! I do understand why you will be leaving though, a few days ago I posted about my situation with moving in with Boyfriend or Best Friend before having a ring and some people honestly made me feel like I am never going to get a ring ever, that I made the worst decision of my life and that the only way I could fix this is by moving out. All I wanted to know was if people would be upset over the situation, it’s done and it’s over with and I am happy to be living with the love of my life.
I know this is your decision but I hope you choose not to delete your account, I would love to hear when J finally does give you the proposal of your dreams.

No 🙁 I really enjoy reading your posts and definitely feel like I can relate. I’m so sorry some people cannot just be nice or shut up. I hope you return soon!

OH no! It’s so sad to see you go! I understand why you would feel that way, though, there have been some harsh comments lately. I hope that you at least pulled out the supportive posts and will hang on to what those ladies said. You are not the only one who analyzes things SO says–I’m sure every person on here does the same thing,it’s human nature, and it multiplied when there is something huge like this on the horizon. It has been nice seeing your posts on here, especially when the boards were having a quieter day yet there was still activity coming from somewhere. Don’t let this discourage you–I hope you have a short waiting period from here on out and I hope you come back every once in a while 🙂

I hate to see you go, Gwen! You have been a really supportive poster and you will be missed. I am sad to hear people have been making negative or rude comments to you. I think that is inevitable though on an internet board and you shouldn’t take them to heart and try to “filter them out” and only heed the supportive people. No one on here can know your true situation but I know it is hard to hear negativity and if you feel it would just be better mentally to be away from it I totally understand. best of luck to you!

I’m kinda new to the board as well and have enjoyed your insight and advice to the bees you’ve shared it with. I’m sad to see you go as well. Best of luck to you.
