hi girls! i guess i would be considered a “waitingbee” though i’m not a fan of labels ;p
originally i signed up here because i was in a friend’s wedding and just lurked/asked some questions. i find that lately i’ve been spending a LOT of time on the boards! there are just so many interesting stories from ladies about so many different phases of life – i get sucked in! it is so addictive!
i guess i am feeling a bit silly not being engaged/wedding planning and still am “all up on the Bee” hehe.
anyone else feel this way?

I feel the same way! I found the Bee when I got the engagement itch a while back and started googling rings online. The ring threads kept coming up, and I started to lurk around for a few weeks before finding the “waiting” boards and gathered the courage to join the site myself. Now, I love it.
I do feel silly talking to some of my friends about weddings and engagement, so the Bee is a wonderful place to vent or share exciting news with supportive, non-judgemental people! Plus, it’s fun!

Trust me, you are not alone! I’m not engaged but I found my way here through a friend who was blogging here and well, I haven’t left! It’s very addicting 🙂

I am very very addicted mostly because its a great source of procrastination from my dissertation!

thanks ladies! i have actually learned so much from everyone here – about human nature, about different perspectives, love, relationships etc etc! it’s totally addicting and very educational (or so i tell myself! it’s so much more than weddings. 😉 i am totally a procrastinator too – so true!
happy waiting/reading 🙂

I joined about 5 months before I got engaged. I found WB when I was looking for ideas for my sister’s wedding and I’ve never left.

@tenacity: Totally, I’m technically a waiting bee but I’m mostly waiting for myself… I want to be out of Junior College and have been in my relationship another year before engagement (about 1/2 of the seven-year itch).

You are not alone! I joined when I was lurking wedding stuff just for fun (knowing that an engagement would be coming within a year or so), and I loved the placwe so much I joined. I’m still not engaged, but by looking at my post count it is pretty obvious that I’m addicted. HEck some of the waiting bee’s have been here for a few years!

You’re definitely not alone. I’m not engaged yet and I’ve been on the Bee for five months now. For me, it’s a great outlet for any waiting-related frustration I feel so it’s not unnecessarily vented onto the SO lol. Also, I’ve “met” some lovely Bees during my time here which is great.
