    They do it for me! I wonder if next week I'll be Angeline. People find it funny that I get so annoyed about others getting my name wrong, but it happens constantly and especially in writing you just have to read carefully. Plus Angelina is the superior option out of all the similar names.

    This is a common reaction from people who have never encountered the problem of people not being able to handle your name.

    My google first page for my ego search is a fight between me and a guy in the UK who plays guitar.

    Not an actual fight, just he and I are both on there in equal measure.

    The other nurse in the staff room is probably now confused about the horrified face I just pulled at my phone.

    You should hit him up on his social medias and challenge him to a Boxing Match.

    I completely chickened out at that BBQ last weekend and failed to hold a decent conversation with the girl my friend wanted to introduce me to.

    I fucking hate having such anxiety around people I don't know well. I do well enough once I know people but I'm fucking awful with first impressions.

    Why couldn't they just stop there? They had a not-horrible (not good, not horrible) message, if they had just stopped there. They were so close!

    Before following any advice, opinions, or thoughts I may have expressed in the above post, be warned: I found Keven Costners "Waterworld" to be a very entertaining film.

    I'm really mad at myself about this one.

    From the bits of conversation we had we've got similar interests, but I just completely froze up and couldn't build up to anything that would leave a lasting impression.

    Some American kid must have my name, and difficulty remembering what his actual email address is, because every so often he tries to sign up for something with mine.

    This now also means I occasionally get emails from Instagram suggesting I check out what "McJuggerNuggets" has been doing.

    oh god there was some sorority chick in Baltimore who clearly has a name/email address very similar to mine. I'd often get weird mass emails I hadn't sign up for. More hilarious were the times i got included as a cc in drunk party photos. The last incident I had was last year when she used my email to sign up for several realtors in the Baltimore area, looking for apartments. I wrote back to several saying they had the wrong email and should probably call her if poss, and I haven't had a peep since.

    I wonder if I could compose a better message.

    I mean I typically don't mention the person's appearance at all.

    I do not get how people don't understand that the underlying assumption when you message a person is that you think they're cute. Like it's a service where you click on headshots! Of course you think someone is at a minimum kind of cute!

    Yeah.

    Usually I've focused on interesting bits from their profile and try to avoid talking about myself unless they ask.

    My problem isn't not knowing how to speak to people though I think.

    I think maybe I have bad pictures?

    I actually go by my nickname enough in the corporal denizens that it is pretty interchangeable with my real name. It is always fun talking to someone I have known for a while and they ask "What's your real name again?"

    A friend in college and I had several ping pong matches to determine who was the true Dave. (Technically him anyway since I go by David rather than Dave (more technically in college I was always called by my last name anyway) )
    I never won. He was allowed to call me Rob for 3 years until he graduated and I got my name back.

    This is why I shortened my name to Ron. Just... I have enough headaches, I don't need other people's crap about my name too.

    It's not ideal but the least you can do is take a bunch of selfies until you get some that look nice. Or have a photoshoot with a roommate!

    It's not like you need to be riding a tiger, you just need to give a good idea of what your best look looks like.

    I'm on the tube before 7am to go to a place I don't want to for 28 and a half hours over the next two days, ensuring that I will be sleep deprived tomorrow. I will happily be Angelica if it means I get to go back to bed. I would make that deal with the devil.

    Eliiiiiiiza!

    I never did online dating but I don't see how guys think leading with "ur hot we should mash bits lol" is ever, ever going to work. Like you could have gone with "you have a face and we have similar interests, can we get coffee?" and I feel like it would do at least as well.
