    Okay, so I admittedly haven’t read this entire thread yet (I will), but it’s getting lots of flags, so I wanted to check in.

    Weddingbee is an all-inclusive community. Sure, we’re focused primarily on weddings, but our members come from all walks of life, and we support that and embrace it.

    @wolfpackforever:  I think that’s the point that many bees are trying to make. While it’s fine for you to make your own single bees list (you have already made it, right?) you are not likely to find many women are are focused on marriage the way you are before even getting into a relationship. It doesn’t matter whether people think you are right or wrong, there just may not be the audience you are looking for here.

    That being said, I thought it was a bit strange that there are TTC and baby focused boards on here, but I get that people have built a community here and the girls that were talking about their weddings together are now talking about their babies together. They have something in common. You just may not have the same focus on getting married in common with more than a few women. Most relationships don’t end up in marriage, this coming from someone who is marrying the first guy she dated, full disclosure. But, I did not go into my relationship expecting it to result marriage. And most people don’t. So, you have your list, and you are more than welcome on the boards, but just don’t be disheartened if there is not a lot of enthusiasm.

    I’ve been on Weddingbee for three years, and I can tell you that the site has totally changed from how it originated, and that’s because it got so many awesome members who found a community here and wanted to stay after their weddings. And that’s a great thing!

    Throughout the years, the site has evolved as its membership and the way members use the site has evolved. That means that boards have been created that aren’t necessarily wedding-centric. And we welcome that.

    There is absolutely a place for singles at Weddingbee, just as there’s a place for all of us who are already married and are no longer planning a wedding. 🙂

    At this point, this discussion seems to have run its course, so I’m going to close this thread.
