Hopefully you’re overthinking it, lol.  But I think it’s better to tell him than to leave him wondering. 

What I told my FI about the site is that it’s mainly about wedding related things like rings, cakes and dresses. 

Which it is.  Wink

Edit:  Oops, I forgot that you’re not engaged yet.  Hopefully he’ll take it ok without feeling pressured.  He may even like it!  Keeping my fingers crossed for ya.

@OneOfTheseDaysAlice:   He probably won’t even remember the exact name to find it.  If he does you certainly have said many wonderful things about him and how in love you are.  Might swell his head, lol.

I told my SO about it.  He doesn’t care.  Yours probably won’t either.

This has happened to me. I didn’t now how to respond considering we aren’t engaged. I was on my phone and he was like, “Whatcha reading?” Me, “Umm…uhh….I’m on a message board.” And he left it that. I’m sure he has caught glimpses of it because at the end of every night, we both lay in bed, side by side and do stuff on our phones. Usually we are both reading, or looking at ifunny together for 10 or 20 minutes to wind down. But sometimes…I’m on weddingbee…and I can very well look over at his phone and see what he is doing…so I’m sure he sees me.

If you have joined a wedding site and hope you will one day be engaged then it shouldn’t be an issue to tell him you are on WB. If it bothered him then perhaps that would indicate he may not be on the same track/ time line as you. To quore someone who said this the other day ” You can never say the wrong thing to the right man. “

I wouldn’t mind SO knowing about wedding bee once we’re engaged but I wouldn’t want him to know about it before that.. I guess that’s just me. He already knows that I’m anxiously waiting… I’d rather him not know that I’m even more impatient than he already knows

I was kinda iffy on telling my guy about bee too but then i thought he should be happy I have bee because if I didn’t I would be talking to him about wedding stuff.  So I told him, he wasn’t thrilled but I said either I talk to them about our wedding or I talk to you about it and he shut up pretty quick.  Bee is good for both of you and you just have to show him that.
