Are you comfortable giving out your first name on this site?


#1

I suffer from paranoia and anxiety, so it is difficult for me to divulge my real name. I am on the verge of letting people know my first name. One person knows my real name on here. It felt liberating to disclose my real first name to him. I just may let everyone know- it depends on what kind of replies I get. Do you feel comfortable with other online members knowing your first name? Just wondering, and a bit curious


#2

But dave, i already know your name.


#3

When I registered on the old forums I didn’t realize that I wasn’t supposed to use my real name. So for better or worse my real name is “77”.


#4

It doesn’t really bother me that people know my first name.


#5

That’s an interesting topic Wave.

Personally I like to know everyone’s names. But I’m a curious kind of person. I really enjoyed seeing pictures that were posted too.

There is already somewhat of a connection between most on here (I think:), but then when someone discloses their name, it’s sort of endearing.

My name is Missy.


#6

My first name is Rob - that was very liberating :smiley:


#7

Why hello Rob nice to meet you! :smile:


#8

Nice to meet you as well Missy :smiley:


#9

Everyone knows my name is James. I did not know we were supposed to keep first names a secret, so I used it a few times.

Nice to meet you Rob. This is a big step. I like your user name too.

My first name is in my user name, so you all already know it. I am not particularly paranoid these days, so I don’t mind. Hi Rob! Nice name, by the way.


#11

My name is known by 2 people here, maybe 3…
I don’t post it online publicly…not so much paranoia…rumors, spammers, etc…just past experiences…

Thanks James and Caroline, I really appreciate it


#13

Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
Cause I speak of the pompitous of love

I am not really comfortable with broadcasting my name.


#15

I know mortimer cannot be your first name lol


#16

its Maurice. Mortimer is what Walt Disney originally named Mickey Mouse but Mort means “death” in Latin and they made him change it. But I like it. Deadly little mouse. Dont take his ■■■■■■■ cheese.


#17

I like the name mortimer also, its different, and that is what makes it cool


#18

I feel comfortabe revealing my real name, at least on this site. But on a website in Japanese, my mother tounge, I guess I wouldn’t be as comfortable. Since I did so many weird things due to delusions and hallucinations, someone might notice and it would be embarrassing. But I’m sure on one I know in Japan can read my posts here.So this site is like an oaisis for me.


#19

For those that don’t know, my name is Tim .


#20

My name is Kira which means the sun…hence the username. :sunny:
