Let's be honest, there are quite a few know-it-alls on this forum

Got that right, a small cabal of know it alls who live to one up other people’s posts! 🤣

 

Best wishes on the new chapter of your life in the USA and way to go on preparing a video on the K-1 process.

I am not in this world to live up to your expectations,

Neither are you here to live up to mine.

I don't owe no one no obligation 
So everything is fine, fine

I said, I am that I am I am, I am, I am

Agree 100% with your statement. However is a fun and entertaining website for the long wait ahead of the ones starting with an immigration process.

Also, I have a YouTube channel as a hobby and I made a short video on the K-1 process to hopefully help other people thinking about this route. Feel free to check it out/share it with other K-1 applicants (and no doubt leave me tons of snarky comments about how I got all the facts wrong! 😀😞

Great video!
 

As others have said, it would be useful to do others as you progress through the immigration path. It's a long process, but once you're in the States with your other half, somehow the waiting isn't so bad. Good luck!

Great job! And I totally agree. It's one of the main reasons I've been less active on here as of late, I prefer to help  or ask for help by reaching out privately .Defeats the purpose of the forum, I know, but I'd rather that than deal with the know it alls.  And it's easy to pinpoint the culprits, those who chime in on almost every single thread across all topics (who has that much time on their hands??). If you even dare to state something that differs from their thoughts then get ready for the gang up session. I suspect they'll either stay silent on this thread or criticize you in some form or fashion. 

 

But then again, like Valmabe says,  this site is quite entertaining if nothing else for the long wait ahead.....

Got my K-1 approved the other day and leaving for the USA in a few weeks. Very excited for this new chapter in life and just wanted to come say thanks to everyone on this forum who helped answer all the dumb nervous questions I had on every little thing, even the ones who were jerks to me 😂 Let's be honest, there are quite a few know-it-alls on this forum but most people are really helpful and empathetic so thanks for all the advice/info.

I know, right?! I had people digging up info on me from other threads and trying to use it against me rather than just answering the question I had asked....! Like, stalker much?! 😂
