Favourite: Relationship threads, etiquette threads. I just like reading about personal journies, but I also like the drama that the etiquette threads can stir up! I also like feeling support from other Bees about pregnancy and MC since last year on those boards.
Least Favourite: Rings. I don’t care about other peoples’ rings. I absolutely hate threads that complain about rings/jewelry gifts being not good enough. Drives me mad. Hate the humble bragging.

Favourite: Being on the other side of the world to most Bees, I read threads that have started overnight and when I see one that is up to 100+ comments, I grab the popcorn and enjoy the drama.
I also like the threads about pets, careers and anything under the ’emotional’ tag.
Least favourite: I don’t read the ‘wedding planning’ threads because I’m already married, and I eloped anyway so even while engaged I wasn’t interested in checking out cakes and invitations. I read the Waiting threads sometimes but having never been a waiting Bee, I never comment.

Love you and many others for your honesty! I love some drama too, (other people’s) I usually don’t comment, just love reading along and thinking about how I would handle it.
The one thing that drives me nuts are people who think they have to take their kids to a wedding….you don’t take them to work….and uninvted guests that people think should have to go too…..so that’s my duh. It’s the bride’s right to have the wedding they want to have with the guest they want.
This is a super fun thread!

Love: non wedding related drama, especially when there’s a suspicion of cheating; baby stuff, especially names; random stuff like this thread or the types that are like “what products do you think are overrated” etc
Not into: rings, DIY, most dress threads, ceremony questions
The WORST is when you see a thread that sounds super interesting but it’s from four years ago and someone just randomly posted. Such a letdown lol

Favorite: Diamond, gemstone, and vintage jewelry threads (bring on the ring porn); ettiquite questions with interesting conundrums; crazy Mother-In-Law threads (can’t relate, just here for the dramz); and Nesting/homebuying and Married Life boards. I like to cheer on the waiting bees and TTC bees in my head too.
Least favorite: Moissanite blah blah ethical space rocks that don’t perpetuate diamonds; show me your low color diamond and talk about how white you think it looks threads; is my 1 carat ring small threads; wedding cakes, favors, paper, and other threads which seem to make nervous planners more nervous.

GIVE ME ALL THE DRAMZZZZZ.
Seriously though, I LOVE talking about relationship issues. My life is actually super boring and low key and I avoid drama like the plague so I love talking about other peoples’ drama. Plus I legitimately love helping people. I myself went through a rough relationship years back and was on a site similar to this where people were telling me how unhealthy my relationship was. I remember not wanting to listen to the advice despite everyone saying the same thing. I remember posting literally the same questions over and over and people saying the same thing. I TOTALLY was THAT person years ago. Now with the help of those anonymous posters, I am in a happy and healthy marriage with a man who has such love and respect for me and I have the same for him. I wouldn’t trade this for the world.

I stumbled across the Waiting board a while ago and after browsing there I think those are now my least favorite threads. It makes me so frustrated. Half on behalf of girls with commitmentphobic bfs, and half frustration AT them for not leaving.
Fave thread is the replica dress thread, and dress threads in general. Replica dress thread is really fascinating. People don’t generally get to see behind the scenes at dresses in progress. They are massive projects and seeing those in progress pics gives me appreciation for how much work goes into them.

I HAAAAAATE waiting threads with a PAAAASSSSIIIOOONNNNN.
Weird fact – i am registered on one more wedding website. What i find extremely crazy, is that NO ONE ON THAT FORUM TALKS ABOUT WAITING, SIUP, and crap like that. It is annoying. A lot of us waited, I myself dated my fiance for 5 years (he proposed on our fifth year anniversary) but it wasnt the end of the world. Some of the threads are just too much, like ” been together 2-3 years and waiting, losing patience” like really? I am sorry, i know i may sound harsh, but people need to enjoy their relationship instead of pestering their boyfriends to propose. More you beg, more they will back off. (this is not to say that i wasnt concerned here and there, sure, i actually cried ONCE in our five year relationship and that was so silly, now that i look back. It wasnt dramatic or anything, i just got upset, because his best friends ex married someone within like 9 months of dating, so naturally, i was upset ( not because i would EVER want ot get married that soon, but because i could not stand that girl, lol) and guess what? My fiance didnt propose to me for anorther maybe two years after that… but the bottom line is – i did not beg, i di not cry (except that one time), i did not keep pestering him about it. He did it on his time. Sure, women may be ready sooner than men, but you cant force him to be ready, because its not genuine.
Now – if you have been dating 10 years, and he makes good money, you are in your thirties and your biological clock is ticking and he STILL keeps stringing you along – WALK AWAY. I know it is hard, but if a man loves a woman, he makes money, can afford to buy her a ring and still does nothing about it… he is not worth your precious time. Stop wasting your time.
