    did anyone see this article on CNN.com today? not sure how much stock I put in a study that measures Facebook activity...

    hopefully all of your boyfriends will ignore it!

    getting engaged makes women unhappy

    LOL!

    i think the vast majority of wedding planning is done by women though, and it can be very stressful.

    either the guys need to pull their weight or a fabulous wedding planner is absolutely necessary if you insist on a perfect wedding with minimal stress (but it''ll cost ya!)

    Considering that the article came from "The Frisky" which also features a piece today on Doggie Yoga, I don''t put too much stock in the study.
    My facebook posts do not always equal my true feelings, and I often don''t post about feelings at all -->I''m sure this is true for many people.

    Social network research is certainly interesting, thanks for posting the link slg47 [​IMG].

    Its not being engaged that causes women to be unhappy. Its waiting to be proposed to!

    I don''t think it is really too accurate. Planning a wedding is stressful so of course women are going to be a little negative sometimes but, it''s probably just that a person is more likely to vent when feeling frustrated than spend their time status updating on facebook when their feeling really happy.

    Haha because a facebook sample is a reliable base for any sort of statistical analyses [​IMG]

    This is pretty much true of anything and everything, especially on the internet. How many of us have a bad impression of a girlfriend''s SO because all we hear is her complaining about the stupid things he does?

    And this is why I generally don''t post about my relationship on LIW. It is a lot easier to vent than it is to be one of those happy people, even if 95% of the time you''re happy. And I would hate for anyone here to get the wrong impression because of the 5%, which I think is often the case in these here parts.

    As a married woman, I can say without a shadow of a doubt I was much happier before the proposal and after the wedding than during the engagement period. Planning a wedding was so stressful that I would be amazed if any of my status updates from that period were happy after the anouncement of the engagement. I even made it fairly low key, the process is something I will never repeat for anything.

    I think it totally depends on the woman- if wedding planning is stressful for you, then the engagement PERIOD may not make you happy. However, I think that most women are happy that they GOT engaged.

    Also- I think a lot of women like to pretend-b*tch on their status updates (to evoke comments & attention). I admit- I''ve done it before. It''s boring to see a status that says, "Life is beautiful, wonderful, and I am the happiest women in the world!" ... just my observation... and an explanation for why "tracking statuses" may be misleading...
