I have over 30 as well. Some of the ladies here have become some of my closest friends and the people I can go to for advice and emotional support. Several of us in the Houston area have gotten together and done dinner, had a party at my house, I've watched the dogs of 2 different ladies from here, and gone to meet the baby of one of them when he was about a week old.
This forum used to be almost like a family- until there was some drama and WW corporate decided it didn't care about us brides at all. That's why the forums suck now!
Haha- my number is rediculous... so far there are 85. I'm just... likeable I suppose. Honestly though I think I've had genuine conversations with maybe 20 of them. Otherwise it's group conversations. But I've been invited to some of their weddings and I'll be smiling pretty at Wicked Hooker's wedding coming up!
Things here used to be really respectful and fun. People used to be light hearted and I don't think I heard about the drama llama up until more recent people started posting. I miss those days as well.
