Guys Reveal Why They Have Secret Pinterest Wedding Boards
If you thought Pinterest wedding boards were gender specific, you totally thought wrong.
It turns out women are not the only ones secretly pinning every single detail of their wedding long before they're even engaged or dating someone serious. Men are into that, too.
Whether it's to potentially impress a girl later on or because they wanted to see what all the hype was about, your soulmate might also be secretly planning the wedding of his dreams.
Check out why these seven guys admitted to having their secret wedding Pinterest boards:
1. I want to be prepared.
I'm about to propose to my girlfriend in a month or two, and I figured I'd go on Pinterest to get proposal ideas and look at engagement rings. Then, I kind of got hooked and started making a board with my own wedding ideas. I want to be prepared when I start this whole wedding-planning thing with my girlfriend.
— Leroy H., 28
2. I needed to see what this was about.
Every girl I know at work is always on Pinterest when they should be working, so I went on, too. I made a bunch of boards — manly boards — but one board happened to be wedding-related. I just did it to see what it was about.
— Craig S., 24
3. I kind of like it.
Yeah, it's embarrassing that I have a wedding Pinterest board titled, “John's Dream Wedding,” but I kind of like it, and I'm going to be proud of it whenever I decide to show my friends... which is most likely never.
— Peter B., 28
4. It's not just a wedding board.
I use Pinterest for inspiration (I'm a designer), so whenever I'm on there, I like photos that capture my attention. Sometimes, those are wedding photos, and I either download or pin them so I can refer back to them.
— Rick D., 31
5. It could be a future turn-on.
I don't know when, but I have a feeling telling a girl I have a wedding Pinterest board is going to be a turn-on. I'm waiting for the day it gets me laid.
— Victor W., 29
6. I want to help my sister.
I have a wedding Pinterest board because my sister is getting married, and she and I are really close. I've always been her big brother and helped her with everything. She doesn't have a lot of close girl friends, so I've taken on the job of helping her out. I use it just to collect cool ideas I find.
— Lucas E., 26
7. Don't judge me.
I watch football, drink beer, do other guy things, oh, and have a Pinterest board with wedding pics. Don't judge me. Guys secretly plan their weddings, too.
