Yep. I got burned horribly from something I posted online that was read by extended family. I'm still too naive and probably say more than I should. On this board I picked a random, means nothing name in the hopes to stay more hidden this time.

Nothing I say here would burn me by anyone in my life. I'm a pretty straight forward person so anyone who knows me knows what I'm thinking/feeling if they ask.

I live in Taiwan! I am not too worried about my side!

But I don't want my husband's family to know that I am posting here! I just don't want them to know all our sex secrets! My mother-in-law will be shocked if she finds out what we are doing! Her Internet is very old fashioned, good for me!

A friend of mine, (C) made a new pal on the internet (S). They lived in the same state and a few months after they met S just-so-happened to move into my friend's apartment building. S began to dress like her, adopt her beliefs, and meet all of the same people. She methodically eased her way into my friend's place. S managed to turn C's family, including her dying mother, against her until they began to "see the crazy." C moved out of the apartment building and S would show up at her house demanding C apologize for ruining her life. Luckily C was granted a restraining order.

The internet is scary. LOL

That is hrm Single White Female movie scary. I'm sure it happens. I'm thinking you have a better chance of getting hit by a car crossing the street though.

I've had the full gamut on names. When we first got married some 20+ years ago, I didn't change my name. My H didn't have a strong preference either way and I liked my family name.

That lasted for a few years until we decided to have children. Then I decided to change my name but used my maiden name as my middle name and added his name as my last (you know like "Hillary Rodham Clinton" except that was before she was ever in the public eye and I was kinda pissed she had seemed to take my idea ). I did that for several years, but it was a royal pain - everyone always tried to stick a hyphen in my name but it wasn't supposed to be hyphenated.

Eventually, I changed my last name to his and am perfectly happy with it. My mom still occasionally calls me by my family's name, which I think is funny.

I guess you can see my transition and growth throughout my marriage based upon my name.
