    [QUOTE]@ OP: You wanted if perfect so you sacrificed surprise. No big deal, he could still do the "dinner proposal" a thousand different ways so breath. Well all that being said, congrats on your engagement and have a wonderful life. @iwantcake (aka weddingbee-spy-who-failed): These women are bluntly honest and smack some sense into you when you need it. They also care for each other a ton and are fun to talk with. If you can't handle that then it's your loss.

    <div>Thanks :) I am excited to see what exactly he has planned in that aspect, I just got distracted from it for a bit when I realized the rest wasn't. Thanks for reminding me.</div>

    Which is fine but you have to expect that there's a chance of receiving responses that you may not like. I think plenty of people shared their experiences with you, but also gave their opinion on and advice for your situation, basically because it's a message board and that's what happens around.

    Regarding iwantcake, you can't come in here and tell people how to post. We are an honest group of women and if you can't handle that then you're probably better suited elsewhere (WeddingBee, for example).

    Actually, I told you that you need to tell your BF how you feel about the situation because he isn't a mind-reader. I never said or implied that you shouldn't have posted. And FWIW, I think you handled the responses really well.

    This isn't the only thread where iwantcake got a stick up her ass over replies on this board.

    <div>In your response to iwantcake (the one I quoted before) it seemed like that's what you were saying. And ah, I hadn't seen those messages so it looked like you were jumping down her throat out of nowhere. It makes more sense now.</div><div>
    </div><div>I don't know if you saw but I did reply a few posts back and say that it's kind of too late for him to change anything (about a week away) which I didn't mention in my first post.

I understand that otherwise talking to him would have been helpful though, so I didn't mind being reminded of that.</div>

    My response to her was because she was basically telling people how to post, which as I said before, isn't right.

    I did see that. Basically, you're about to get engaged to a man you love and who loves you back. Whether you know about it or not that day is going to be one of the most special days of your life. Enjoy it and don't worry about the rest.

    <div>We're not calling ourselves publicly (to family/ on facebook) engaged until he asks the "old fashioned way" but since we both have talked about it and have begun planning a bit, I sometimes call us engaged here because it's easier to say that than explain.</div>

    Honey, with your full name in your screen name, it's possible to find out a significant amount of information about you. Like your registry information, for instance. Please delete this account and remember to practice appropriate Internet safety. It really isn't something to take lightly. Your address and phone number probably won't be too hard to get by some creepy person. Oh, and don't register if you aren't engaged.

    I think what people are trying to say is that your username is your actual IRL full name. Anyone here can google you and find out a TON of info (your FB and twitter accounts, where you go to school, etc) and that's not info anyone should want in some random stranger's hands.

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Weird thing hit me as sad all of a sudden (long post, semi-rant) : 1. You shouldn't be registering for wedding presents unless you're engaged and, you know, getting married, having a wedding. In Response to  Re: Weird thing hit me as sad all of a sudden (long post, semi-rant) : 2. I saw both of your FBs.  You're listed as engaged on one and in a relationship on the other.  If that's not weird and BSC with all of your other BSC stuff, then I'm the Dalai Lama. 3. Being a sophomore in college still makes you...19 or 20.  I'd slow my roll if I were you.  A LOT.  Like, to negative speeds.

    <div>1. I will be engaged in a week or so, I don't see a problem in having a few items in a registry. And we have a rough date set and ideas of some other details, so we are going to be getting married. </div><div>
    </div><div>2. I don't know why having a running inside joke with my friends on facebook is crazy, even if it involves my relationship. Everyone I'm friends with on that facebook knows that it's not real, and no there are no mixed messages to them about my relationship status. If putting a not remotely inappropriate joke on my facebook makes me crazy, then I'll bet there are a ton of crazy people out there. Have you really never refered to any kind of inside joke on a social media site?</div><div>
    </div><div>3. Just because I'm young (and assumingly younger than most people commenting here) doesn't make my relationship any less valid or real than yours. True younger people have a higher chance to make rash decisions etc but that doesn't mean that's the case here. Everyone has a different relationship and backstory, we beileve ours is one ready for the next step. You don't have to agree, but I don't think it's fair to judge our choices based on only age. Would you apreciate if someone said you were too young or old or whatever the case my be for your relationship etc? Especially based on only age?</div>

    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Weird thing hit me as sad all of a sudden (long post, semi-rant) : That would be the target one, because I made most of them non-viewable to the public until we're officially engaged. I wanted to have that one be stuff you can't get at places like macy's or williams sonoma to change it up a bit and give variety to anyone picking from them. Thanks for jumping to conclusions though :)

    I'm actually 100% engaged and still don't have a registry for my wedding that's less than a year away. My assumption that you're completely BSC still stands.

    <div>To each their own in terms of when they plan or do things. </div><div>
    <div>I decided to start one becase one of the wedding planning things I read (I don't remember if it was this site or not) said that as soon as an engagement party, people will be asking for one. I figured that it would be better to start one when I read that during a relatively un-busy month than to do so when he proposed, since I could be busy then. I was just trying to follow the advice of an article that seemed to make sense and would likely have been written by someone with more wedding planning experience than me, which I would think is a point of the articles in the first place. </div><div>
    </div><div>I can't make you change your opinion of me, but I can give you my reasons for doing things. I don't think I'm crazy, and I really don't see a reason for you to call me a phrase that is usually connected to insanity. </div></div>
