FI Opinion

Do any of your FI laugh at you for spending so much time on the boards? Mine thinks I'm so silly for checking this board all the time and then laughs at me when I make comments about posts! haha Does anyone else experience this?? :)

    Mine laughs, but sometimes he chimes in on a response I should give. It's pretty funny!
    But he has admitted that without this board, I would have been very lost! I love you girls!

    Yes, especially at first.  But recently he knows we've reaped the benefits b/c we found our WC and photographer on the Hawaii board, a couple girls on this board helped me with our invitations in PowerPoint, I learned about stamping on here from Sarack, and more.  So it's becoming more real to him.

    He still thinks it's funny, though.  :)

    mine is totally used to it. during the beginning (sorta) he thought a group of us were cyber bullies. I'm nice! haha. I think he's happy I have other people to ask about WR things so he can stay out of it. Today he told me .99 was so much money...... omg! he has NO IDEA!

    He SERIOUSLY thought 99 cents was a lot of money?!?! Good Lord woman, are you sure you want to marry that nutter? o.O

    kducharme - yeah, my FI laughed at first, especially as the slang started creeping into my language when I told him things. But he liked it because it was something I enjoyed and it gave me support in the planning and I totally died laughing the day he used STD in a sentence to me, using TK definition and he didn't even notice. BAHAHAHA.

    Yep.  He thinks I'm a little crazy.  He complains that I'm always on the internet.  I told him today he could go ahead and plan it if he'd rather.  : )

    Sarack - did you point out that you can always resell the dang things? My FI doesn't complain about money because he knows how hard I am trying to stick to our budget (he doesn't notice that I buy stuff out of my personal money a lot so am technically going to be over, heehee) and that the resell value will probably cut the cost of most stuff in half at the end.

    My FI calls me "Bridezilla" whenever I get on TK.  But deep down he likes it, because he knows that the boards have been really helpful, and I have an outlet so I don't have to drive him insane with wedding details.

    He used to make fun of me at the beginning but not as much anymore. He too likes that I have somewhere else to go so he doesnt have to hear all about wedding all day.

    Yes, FIe makes fun of me for being on the boards and taking advice from Knotties. I think once she said "if the Knotties said it was proper ettiquette to go jump off a cliff, would you?" But other times she thinks it's useful to get outside opinions on stuff, especially ettiquette Qs. And since she is heavily into other online board/chat whatever she doesn't think it's that crazy.

    FI doesn't really notice, unless I point out a post to him, but I don't think I'm very immersed into TK or other bridal websites (yet).

    I don't think he realizes since i do a lot of it while he is at work or when he's playing computer games.  Im sure as the date gets closer, and more decisions are being made  i will whip out the "the the other knotties thought" card :)

    FI thinks its funny and cute that I'm on TK almost every day (even at work!). The only thing he complains is when I'm using his computer and he wants to go on HIS forum for cars..which he is on EVERY DAY! god.. he loves his car.. blah! So yeah both of us are basically 'fighting' on who gets to be on their board/forum that night... >__<
