    What would you guys do if you were flat out asked about your surname? Recently, a couple we've met and played with said, "so you know our surnames (out to dinner they said their surname, which honestly, I don't remember) so what is yours?"

    I was a bit caught off guard ...

    This has never happened before, but I think I would honestly tell them for discretionary reasons, we'd prefer not to say. I'd have to know them awfully well to divulge that information.

    Our surname is one that is not really common.

    Also, I have a common first name with an uncommon spelling; therefore I will spell it differently.

    I have never given our names on the Swingers Board, but I think it's time.

    I've been here long enough and feel so comfortable with everyone.

    Default Re: Alias Names

    We use alias names, but they are actually our middle names - which we don't use in 'real life'. But at least if someone yelled across the room, we'd recognize the name. We've been using our alias names for so long that it's habit... but if we had to do it over again, we'd start with our real initials... would make it much easier.

    We do tell people, when we arrange to meet or start to email about meeting, what our real names are. So far no one has walked away.

    Default Re: Alias Names

    We were just wondering how many couples, and singles for that matter, use their real names?
    We do...
    You mean your real name is jcbicouple?! Man, I've heard of parents planning their kids' futures but this takes the cake!

    We use our nicknames' initials online, but give our real names over the phone or when we meet.

    (Bah! I got suckered into answering a recently-dug-up ancient thread! So sorry...)

    We never use our real names until we meet. Our jobs would not stand up to the "infamy". : "Gee, Icaught my son on a dating site and he found Mayor Hottwat and her husband Officer Handcuffs. Well, no I wasn't looking for something on the side it was my son, and I disciplined him for going there, but he did find these perverts on the net."

    Default Re: Alias Names

    we have to use "aliases" in our posts and personals due to the high profile of our chosen professions in our community. This community, though medium population, has a "gossip tube" especially in the area of our profession. If somehow our real names were exposed it would affect our profession and make it difficult if not impossible to work. It might appear weird to some but we are very aware, as our community has a large population that espouses conservatism, though maybe only social, and large progressive liberal. We just can't take that risk if we want to continue to maintain an income to support our profession. We do tell our real names as soon as the communication develops to the point that we feel they can be discrete and respectful of our requirements.

    We were harrassed early on from a guy on the 'net that we often use an alias at first. Once we meet or get serious we use our real names. so there.

    We could have voted two ways. I voted for we use an alias online but use our real names in person, because we do that. However mine is an alias while hers is real. I have to be discreet due to work, whereas she doesn't give a shit who knows it. LOL

    Default Using Real Names

    A discussion came up this weekend about how some couples choose to use fake names when they are at clubs and in swinging situations. Someone had posted a thread about wanting to remain totally anonymous and not use their real names. I know some who use them online and will give out their real names once they meet in person, others who won't give them out at all. I've never used a fake name simply because it's hard enough for me to remember my real one sometimes...lol. Seriously though, I can't imagine trying to remember which name I was using at that moment... or if we got to the point with one couple at a club where they knew our real names but others didn't can you really expect that one couple to not screw up and call you by your real names?

    So I'm curious, how many here do use fake names in swinging situations (whether just online, in clubs, or throughout swinging)? How has this worked for you? Has it ever lead to confusion? Or to someone using the wrong name at the wrong time?

    Default Re: Using Real Names

    The first time we met a couple locally, we used fake names until we met them in person. We quickly realized that was too much trouble, and seemed like a slightly dishonest way to start a possible friendship. We never did it again.

    Last year, we met a new couple at a houseparty and they gave us one set of names. After the party, they wrote to each of the couples at the party and told us their real names. We told them we liked their made-up names better and that we were going to continue calling them by those names. Even now, I still have a hard time remembering what their real names are.
