So Who Are You NOW?

While leaving a comment at

cougarprey4play's blog

I realized that I am no longer a clever girl

He asked a question about handles and why we choose them.

I commented that my handle is outdated.

When I first joined, I was clevergirlinla. I left for awhile, then hastily rejoined one day, without giving a handle much thought.

<------------ Note the suns over both the heart and mind :)

The site wouldn't let me be a clever girl in Louisiana anymore. And there were so many other clever girls on the site, I COULD have been clevergirl103, I guess Oh, what the hell...tag on the 4 U and be done with it.

Really bad choice.

Since I started blogging, I haven't really been

4 anyone

let alone U... a kind of unintentional false advertising that has raised the hackles of more than a few men and prompted them to write to me.

That I felt the need to announce that I was Clever Girl, at all, was reactive. I wasn't meeting men able to converse about things that interested me, and I was tired of "dumbing down."
I also valued the intellect and the mind over everything else. If not cynical, I was at least very cautious

I'm becoming more of a "heart person"...dual action...heart consults with mind? How about HeartSmartGirl?

Does your handle still stick? If not, what might you change it to?

HeartSmartGirl...yes, this I like.
Attentive2u58 is the one I use every where and 2u dosn't have to be for you so as things change my name wouldn't but I think you're going to have some guys bug you no matter what.

Well, I've known you a while now and anybody that needs reassurance that you are a clever girl need go no further than me to ask. I'll tell 'em in a heartbeat. Not much gets by you. As for me? I reckon I'll always be a plowboy and for now I live in ky, so I guess it still fits. lol

It's the Masters in English that fooled you, sweetie. I may not have much to say, but dayum...I say it well

I LOVE that this is the direction you're headed!

Mine is more apppropriate now than when I started. Or at least, I've made peace with it.

Wahine is Hawaiian for woman, so mine is saying "One Hot Woman" ha
Before, I cringed at the implication. Today I like it.

Yeah, I'm still [blog 1hotwahine]

I'm not for certain but you might be able to have your handle changed by talking with customer service (phone is best); I know those with gold membership can have it done, not for certain on silver & really unknown about standard.

At least I can understand it - some I look at & would never figure out unless someone told me.

Thanks for the mention, returned it to you already!

Take care,
Coug

My handle still suits me, but my profile is over a year old. It needs to be wiped out. I haven't tried to use it for meeting someone since the first month I joined this site.

Oh well. Nobody writes me anyway. I don't suppose it really matters. Da heck with it...

Attentive...a very nice quality for women to know about you

So you really can cook? Even though I see your handle a lot, I don't associate it with cooking. Strange. Maybe in your basement?

You should do a post on food/cooking/favorite recipe to remind us all that you really CAN COOK

Hmmm...you grew into your name and I grew out of mine...

Yeah...seems like everyone around me is happier as I become softer and kinder...even the dogs

    humboldthonni...nah...what was I thinking....maybe czech honni....no....but I guess I am stuck with it unless I move to Ras Al Khamiah and then I will be haremhonni (stay tuned)
Stay tuned? Really?

I have been thinking about it and posted the self question on my blog. You gave me much to think about but, I know I would change it to something a little more about me the person.

Thanks,

Tim
