      Do you think this will be a good thing, or not so good?

        Yep! i know, it's been all over the boards across.
        A ton of bees are leaving and it's just tragic! I know she said it'll get better but ppl are pretty upset about it.
        a little help goes a long way.

          not too mention, i've been following that site for 4 years, this sucks.
          oh well, whatever makes a profit..can't blame them.

            That's too bad. Hopefully, though, the site won't be ruined.

            I noticed that you are getting married in Greece. That's really cool!

            Hope your planning goes smoothly!

            Best wishes,

              But for me there's a financial counterargument. Every time I click on Weddingbee now, eHarmony will make money. That makes me uncomfortable. And for the bloggers, every time they write a post, they are attracting more readers who make money for eHarmony. In essence, these wonderful bloggers are volunteering their time to make money for eHarmony. Yes, they're getting other things out of being here (support from the community, a chance to have their blog more widely read), but it's still volunteer work for a corporation that practices policies they don't believe in.

              I haven't decided whether to keep reading just yet. I'm still conflicted between wanting to keep Weddingbee diverse

                  Wow, that sounds like the perfect place for a wedding. I've been to Italy, but never been to Greece. However, I've seen a lot of pictures of Greece, and I went to college with a guy from Athens so I've heard a lot about it.

                  Be sure and post a link to some of your pictures when you get back!

                    Why does everyone hate eHarmony?
