It seems some do and some don't. I don't think it's any sort of 'signal,' just someone's habit or not.

Wow, then I must be attracted to the whole wide world because I always "sign" emails and posts to various discussion forums at several websites( not all dating sites,either)...

I put my first name at the bottom of ANY e-mail I send. It doesn't mean anything to me. I mean, what else would you put, "Pookie" or something?

I'm with CindyO I always put my name at the end of an email,, not intending to relay the thought that I am attracted to them. For me its a friendly thing to do.
It makes the email seem more personal and less formal.

actually i've never gotten an msg with someones name at the bottom on the first reply, usually the third or fourth they'll put their name. I personally never really thought of it, so i never put my name on any of my emails. I mean especially if you know the exchange isnt going anywhere, why bother?

I sign almost all my emails with my first name. I can assure you that it means nothing more than it's my name. That's all:)

It is common in our culture to identify yourself when a note or letter is written...if you are bothering to reply then the first name is just a courtesy

I use my POF name to sign letters when the letter is upgraded to my real name yes that is a signal that I trust that person with the information.

I usually put my first name at the end of my emails.

I just assumed that the people I'm writing to would like to know the name of the person who they're corresponding with.
perhaps that simple logic is too confussing for some people?

I have people tell me their 1st names all the time.
-Sales people
-customer service reps
-restaurant staff
-friends of friends
-new guy on my hockey team
-optometrist
-new neighbor
-lady calling about a newspaper classified ad which I placed
Should I assume that these people are all signalling that they are attracted to me?
Or
Is it more likely they just don't want me to refer to them as "hey you" ?

If they sign their first name I always do in return because I feel like it's respectful.

If I'm sending an email asking a serious question about something in their profile, I sign my name too.

However, if I'm just commenting on something in their profile that I'm being silly about, I usually just sign with ............

M

And after going back and forth with someone for a while and having exchanged names already....we both usually skip it. lol

Once in a while on a forum post that I'm trying to be helpful on I may use.... UZP I know real names are a "no no".

I sign my email, to both men and women with my name only to be polite.

The only sign of attraction may be the choose of complementery line (Love, Alexis; Your Friend, Alexis for example)

Just a random habit, a way of personalising it - at least for me.

If you know it isn't going anywhere, why do you keep conversing? I give my name right away if they give me their right away. If they don't, then I wait a few emails and if the emails are still going back and forth then I sign with my name as a polite gesture.

I think that your reading to much into it.

Though I think that if your going to email someone, you should be at least respectful enough to leave a first name. That is unless it's a "Thanks but no thanks" type of email.

But, if your going to take the time to write someone, why would you want to be this anonymous individual.

She might have forgotten. But I wouldn't read to much into it.

After an odd experience where a guy I'd been talking to online found out where I was working, based on almost no information I would have called personal, and then sent something to my office with a note making a joke about stalkers, I don't give out my first name so readily anymore, or my profession. They are both unusual enough to make that a bit too easy. So for me, OP, it is definitely a sign when I give out my first name. And if I tell you what I do, I really trust you!

I have never gotten an email where someone has not put their first name at the bottom, nor have I even sent an email where I haven't put mine at the bottom.

It's not as though you're putting your surname, address, driver's license and tax-file number on it.

k just checked all my emails, no names. Even on the ones coming to me first. Hmm guess its just me, but now that you mention it, maybe I should sign all my emails with my name, does seem curteous.

isnt the email itself generally a signal of attraction? leaving their name lets you know what to call them other than "whitey".

Have a good'un.

maybe i should rephrase that to not attraction, but more a level of trust to give out a first name

Can't speak for anyeone else, but any email I send always has my real first name at the bottom. I think it's only polite and any first contact email I send out always has my name in as an introduction at the beginning.

Yeah no kiddin, I didn't know we weren't supposed to. I always put my first name at the bottom of every email I send, it's just the polite thing to do.

I agree with Chandlers wish, I sign my name to my email because I don't want to talk to someone and be known by my screen name, but it doesn't have any hidden meaning.
