Re: FFFC 1/11

  • @b_1029 - Ah okay, I thought you hadn't been here as long as you'd been TTC. I think I've been here since March?

    Now I'm trying to think if I'm the "oldest" regular that's not in the IF board.

  • @holly321 - It's an awful award to win, but I admit you beat me by about a year.

    @holly321 - Same! I mean, I understand not wanting to surround themselves with people that are 2/2 or 3/3 and are still blissfully optimistic, but some of us miss them! 

    ETA:
    @b_1029 - You didn't make anyone mad! We were just seeing who the "grandma" title should go too lol.

  • @marebear15 the 2/2 3/3 that are blissfully naive are better than the 2/2 3/3 that worry too much!

  • @holly321 Maybe like a pre-IF type of check-in....but then you would probably have one of the newbies that are freaking out for no reason thinking that they would belong there and ruin the peacefulness of said check-in  :/

  • @inthewoods23 Yeah, people who complain about how long it took them when really it was like 4 months can GTFO with that shit

    @galentine Most of us post those kind of things at one time or another and we understand that the newness of TTC is exciting.  We try not to judge you too hard if you do that...especially if you prove yourself to be one of the more awesome newbies :)

    @inthewoods23 an acquaintance was complaining to me right around our year mark and they had been trying for 3ish months.  *TW* she’s now about 20 weeks and got KU literally right after our conversation...I can’t help but hold my bitterness back at this point like aw yes please tell me how awful that was for you *end TW* 

    i don’t reply to her texts anymore since she texted me to inform me of her status and I don’t really feel that bad about it.

  • @galentine no no no. You've done nothing (that I'm aware of). Some of us are just super jaded due to the hand we've been dealt.

  • As someone new to the board and to TTGP, I can see how those things would be frustrating to the people who've unfortunately been here for longer.  I hope I haven't offended anyone by trying to give advice. I feel like I'm the opposite of everyone who's just starting out, sometimes. Whenever I decide to do something, I throw myself into researching everything I can about whatever it is.  After reading everything I could (including TCOYF!), I wish I knew less. Only a 25% chance every cycle and only if you're "normal"?? I hate those odds.  I never win raffles so I often feel like I won't win this one either.  MH thinks I'm crazy.  I probably am.

    Anyway I'm sorry about the long post. But I'm glad I've found this community even though it hasn't been long and I truly hope I haven't upset anyone. :heart:

  • As long as people apologize for their blunders, you know?

    In a Facebook fan group I had joined, I had commented on something and said that it looked like my spirit animal and someone replied to me saying that spirit animal is an offensive term to use and cultural appropriation. I was a bit miffed at the time but I definitely learned I should probably be careful about what I say! 

    @lulu1180 amen!

    @b_1029 geezez at 3 months it's like you haven't even started! It's like "achoo, oh my I'm pregnant!".

    It's like some people have the magical power that all they have to do is blink and they get pregnant! /Rant

  • @klmcguire Okay, that ring is stunning! 7 carats might be a little over the top for me, but I wouldn't say no to 2 or 3... 😉

  • If I ever say anything stupid (let's be honest.... when I do!) I welcome being called out so I can learn and adjust my comments accordingly. I definitely understand being jaded and bitter about being dealt a crummy hand, so I don't begrudge anyone their feelings. This is an amazing and supportive community here that I've wanted to be a part of for a long time, so I definitely plan to prove myself to be an awesome newbie!

  • My FC is along the lines of @galentine but I'll put it in a spoiler 

    TW mention of kids 
     I was part of the bump July 2012 and some of those women are people I talk to over FB on a daily basis and in fact have spun 2 FB groups since we got booted from TB, anyways I hope I dont piss anyone off as being a newbie because sometimes I forget I am a newbie. I keep worrying that if I do get  BFP soon that I'll just move without posting in the grad thread because I dont want to offend anyone but it sucks because so far y'all have been so helpful and supportive.

  • It has been fun reading everyone's posts. I'm technically a newbie, but this is my second time around TTGP, so it's really nice getting to know the new culture here!
