    Not really. I posted a thread just recently about choosing a cake flavor, and got some responses from bees who flat out told me that all of the flavors I was proposing sounded awful. I understand that my taste is going to differ significantly from other bees and that’s just a part of life. For the most part, I feel like people are really quite nice on this forum. But occasionally I’ll see comments that just kind of make me cringe. If I don’t have anything nice or productive to say on a thread, I usually just try to avoid it. I don’t think I’d ever ask for advice on very personal issues, because I’ve seen those threads get pretty icky in the responses. 

    Some people just have strong personalities and have no problem saying exactly what they feel. I appreciate when people are honest with me, but ultimately we all have different visions for our weddings, and I don’t take anything to heart. I’m doing what I want, and I feel other bees should do the same. Unless I see someone looking like they purposely just want to start an issue, that irks me.

    The thing that annoys me is when people get into arguments over stupid stuff that makes no impact on anyone’s life at all. I guess I have an old soul in the sense that I think spending time arguing over trivial things is a waste. However, overall, I find the bee to be a pretty nice place.

    Barbiestylez:  Hm, I don’t get offended or physically/emotionally upset IRL 

    sometimes I feel strongly about something and will engage in a debate or heated discussion but what seems dramatic online is really just a care free response behind a computer screen. 

    I don’t always like what Bee’s say and there are some Bee’s that I don’t enjoy “bumping” into on here. I do roll my eyes at the bee’s who are self proclaimed bithces or are purposefully rude.

    I’m sure I annoy some people on here and that someone rolls their eyes when they see my username. That is what happens when you brings tons of women (and some men) to a global site! 

    (off topic but did you figure out what to do with your dress situation?)

    Not solely in etiquette, but, I feel like people can be very crazy when it comes relationship advice on here sometimes.
