Just wondering why certain people chose their user name? Most are pretty obvious, but I'm talking about the unique ones. Mine comes from an old Sesame Street animation done by Jim Henson and Don Sahlin. I used it once as a joke, but it stuck with me ever since.

I tried to use my name in dozens of ways, all taken, so I used the name of and ex-coworkers daughter and added dazed...maybe I was watching Dazed And Confused lol. daynadaze is one of my better usernames, I get so tired of making up names then having them not through, it's maddening. I envy people who have cool usernames, I don't know how they do it.

"Siisaa" was the OKC username of a hot guy I met at a house-party a few years back. He offered me blow, I declined, we kissed and then I watched him receive a blowjob from another man - all in the first 20 minutes of meeting. I'd stalk his profile (which is now deleted/disabled) on OKC and decided I liked the name so much I'd use it as my forum name here.

When the show River Monsters was on I'd watch every episode and became fond of the show's host, Jeremy Wade. He makes his shows interesting (as does his crew!) and never gives up. However there were times where he'd want the catch so bad that he'd injure himself which I questioned.

My username is a mix to two things. Wade is Jeremy's last name and it also means to wade in water. Just wish he'd wade over to me! Ha ha

Mine is part of a lyric to a Shinedown song. It ran out of space to spell it properly so it it "f" instead of "ph".

I noticed that two out of three women mention in their introduction that they love to laugh, or are looking for someone who makes them laugh. So I love2laughtoo.

I like music of all types and that is why I chose my name..... It's music.

If you sing every 2 letters in my name starting from the beginning you'll see.....

Tried this place a few years ago after getting divorced. I had limited luck, mostly due to my unpopulated rural location.

I came back about a year ago. First few names I tried were not available. So just came up with Back Again and the date I created the profile, April 4, 2017.

I started drawing a dog's head with sunglasses on over 40 years ago. I was inspired by Joe Cool (Snoopy's alter ego). I called him cool dog. I was born in 1965. Add it all up and you get cooldog65.

I "Inherited" my profile from friend. She created it and had more fun posting on the forums than luck meeting anyone here.

One day, she posted one thread about an issue of mine, then showed it to me. I had an S/O at the time, so didn't want my own profile. But I liked the forums so much, I began posting from same profile along with her --- with her permission, of course.

My friend got bored with the forums, so she left the profile to me. I changed it to my own pic, then my own info. Only thing I couldn't change was the age. No matter though, since I am not currently looking. Besides that, she's a a couple of years older than me. So, it doesn't really count as "lying", as I am not trying to fool anyone to think I am younger.

I had planned to create my own profile here to meet someone. But I'm not into meeting someone here. So, I just keep the profile, and keep posting as myself.

My name isn’t Suzy, but my daughter often rings and says “hey suze” god knows why, so when I got rudely deleted last summer and had to come up with another name, this was it..

Not quite as simple as you think.

My hair was a dark to light Strawberry Blonde, depending on the time of year, until my late 30's.
On a few occasions, I was called "Red".

My favorite color of car is red. I drove 2 red sports cars.
I love wearing red. Favorite song, "Lady in Red"

... when my granddaughter walked me through the entire internet experience eons ago ... I felt like I was making a bold step ... reaching out beyond my comfort zone ...

when I needed a "user name," I thought of the story of when my grandmother was tiny and sent off to school in a one-room school ... she was frightened of the teacher ... the teacher loudly DEMANDED my grandmother speak her first, middle and last name ... well, my grandmother didn't HAVE a middle name ... so when the teacher demanded it again, my grandmother stood up and said boldly, bravely ... "my name is Molly Maude Walker!" her older sisters gasped ... sometimes I felt like I needed to find that bold little girl ... so used her name!!! (the one she made up for herself!)

I wanted my user name to reflect my passion with the language of astrology. I love the app that allows me to read the stars.
