    I'm not on here as much as I have been,  just because work and classes are a bit overwhelming at the moment. I only really use TK during my leisure internet time. Sometimes when FI sees me at the computer and I'm not working, he'll ask if there's any "crazy knot drama" (that's usually when I get sucked in). He knew about it before we were engaged and while he teased me about it from time to time, he doesn't really care. If anything, he's amused.

    The only time it mattered was when he decided to read and see what all the fuss is about. This happened *right* after I posted about wanting to propose to him. I flipped out and tried to keep him from going, saying that I had posted something about a Valentine's Day surprise completely forgetting that we had agreed not to celebrate. This sparked a whole "What?! I thought we weren't doing anything for Valentine's Day" fiasco. Oh man, what a mess.

    I told him I'm on the Knot, but only after he saw me one day and asked what I was doing. I explained that I spend time on the "not engaged yet" board and that it is also for people who are already married or are helping someone else plan (truth is I spend a lot of time on other boards too!).  He didn't really seem interested and was like, "ok" and never asked any questions. However, everytime he comes in and I'm on, I immediately switch tabs to FB or something else. Smile

    yeah, he knows. He thinks it's cute. :-)
    (He's really happy that I'm so excited to be planning "our wedding.")
    (I know that we're getting engaged really really really really soon!) :-)

    I never post on the boards just search for wedding stuff and I don't think my boyfriend has any idea since we are not engaged. Whever I read something on here and want to tell him about it I just say it's something I saw 'online' which is true haha. It's getting hard to keep it from him! he already knows I'm wedding crazy but I don't know if he knows the extent lol

    Why is "our wedding" in quotes? Is it not really both of your wedding? Is it not really a wedding? I don't understand.

    I don't tell him.  He doesn't tell me when he looks at porn.

    don't read into why I say "our wedding" too much. I think I said it cuz it sounds funny to me to say our wedding when it's not officially happening yet!

    Yea, he knows. I never even thought of hiding it. He talks about it too, which is weird. He'll be like "What were you doing at work? On TheKnot?"
    I started going on TK a lot more after I got rid of my facebook, and I check the forum a few times a day to feed my need for social networking, so he definitely knows.
