Hi bees! I am brand new (this is my first post) and I was nervous that waiting bees would be frowned upon but everyone is so welcoming around here!
My SO is two years younger than I am, and when we had last talked about it he said we were several years out from an engagement (waiting for the right time in our lives), so I stopped thinking about it. But a couple evenings ago he said it could happen before the year is up! So now I can’t get myself off of Weddingbee!
I’m curious: how long was everyone a member before you got engaged? Or for waiting bees, how long have you been around? So happy to be here with all of you!

I lurked until I got engaged. I didn’t have much free time to spend here and actually was totatlly surprised when he did pop the question…
Welcome and yay!!

I joined about a month ago, but just got engaged last week so I didn’t have to wait very long (around here at least! I was with my SO for 4.5 years before he proposed).
The waiting boards are awesome–as is all of WB. It was definitely nice to know there were others who understood my frustration.

@MissTzatziki: Welcome to the bee!
I’ve been on the waiting board for a while and will likely be here a while longer. SO and I have been/are going through a lot of changes in our lives. We are simply enjoying our relationship and building a strong foundation for our future. 🙂

Been lurking for some time, actually. A few months? Then a few weeks after I finally joined, SO has told me that the ring is coming very soon. His sense of time is kind of ridiculous, so I’m not sure if that means next week or in a few months. Joining the bee has been great, though, I love every minute of it. 🙂

I’ve been around a few weeks now and I’m so happy I found the bee! Such great advice and support around here! And it helps that so many others feel and are going through the same things I am! I don’t have many waiting friends in my circle anymore so it’s hard to talk to most about what I’m feeling and going through
Welcome to the bee 🙂

@MissTzatziki: I was a lurker for like a month or two. I am new too- I have only been around about a week or so. But it is exciting to see people be so supportive–I think you will really like being on here. I hope your day comes soon : ) Until then (and even after then) come write about it on here!!

I joined in November when I was having a hard time deciding if I needed to put my foot down and give a ‘me-matum’ or not, when we had been together a little over 4 years. We had a HUGE talk/blowout, but it’s all settled down, and I’ve been a timeline of by the 5th anniversary! Doesn’t help we are long distance though!

Welcome! I come to the bee November of 2010 when I knew a proposal was imminent to get wedding ideas and found the waiting board. My fiancé proposed February 2011. I did wait for about 14 months though in total.

@MissTzatziki: Welcome welcome! 🙂
I was a looong time lurker, for about a year, then I signed up a few weeks ago. Its a great community of women who understand each other and share similar life expiriences, so I’m glad to see you here!

@MissTzatziki Welcome to the Bee!! It’s great to have you join us on the Waiting board Your name is now making me crave some tzatziki on a chicken souvlaki lol. I’m so impressionable.
I lurked for a month or so before joining in October last year as a waiting bee. I have to say that it’s awesome to have a place where there are others who can emphatize with the situation that you’re going through.

@love108: The long distance thing rings a bell…only my problem is I’m moving away to grad school and he’s still in undergrad. We are bound and determined to make it work though! I figure if we can make it long distance, we can survive anything!
@Miss Circe: The SO is VERY Greek, hence the name! Glad to know someone gets it!
@ALL: Thank you so much for all the kind words! I’ll see you around on here! 🙂

I’ve always had a bit of a fondness for wedding planning (incidentally, for my own marriage I’d much rather elope!) so I had an account for a looong time… I just decided to register a new one when my bf and I started shopping for engagement rings.
But yeah… I’ve been here in some form for longer than I’d care to admit!
