Why did you choose the name you chose on here? The avatar?

Me I didn't choose the name I use on here my husband did. We had a friend turn us on to this site and he was going to write on here but he gave up and I love this site. He chose this name because he has a friend named free man. And he thought it would sound cool. I chose the avatar because it is our dogs. So what made you choose your name on here? And why the avatar?

Marginal, yeah, I love that name. Marginal is a symbol of loneliness and the castaway. Those who are rejected by others. Those who are forgotten by others. I love being symbolized by that. Why? Coz if I'm marginalized, I feel like being in the thing pictured as my avatar. See then?

firstly the avatar - because this is me warts and all - secondly the name, well i was in the rat race and the $ or £ was the goal to make as much as i could, but after many years of chasing them i realised that wasnt a life it was greed, so i changed my lifestyle and use the same name for everything i do online to remind myself that life isnt about the $ or the £ its about living it to the full and being as happy as i can.

Hi lxdollarssl and welcome to my lot. I know what you mean too many of us are running after that dollar and in the long run we never seem to catch it. Life is too short not to enjoy each and every day as if it is our last. No fun looking for something that sooner or later will go away so why not live for today and enjoy what we have. Hope you have a great day my friend.

It was quite easy. "Green" is my favorite color, and I like to walk along with it. So, "greenline" just fits the plan. Even in my house, there are many things of different shades of green, curtains, carpets, table cloth, bedsheet, and more. I would feel very refreshed when I walk into the house after a long stressful day at work.

I believe my name on here is lologirl and of course that is my nickname since i was little and when i first started onloine at the age of 13 my mother made my screen name and email address on aol for me so since then i have only ever changed the numbers but have kept the same screen name so it would be easier on family and friends to always remember it i guess. The avatar on here i use is a scenery that i believe i took while either in St Thomas or St Marteen and i just thought it was gorgeous of course and its really breath taking when you go to other countries and see how gorgeous some things are.

Hi Lologirl. I think that is special that your mother picked your user name on here. I love your avatar. I have never been abroad . So it is nice to see things I have never seen or ever will see. My husband was in the navy and traveled all over the world. Never had the desire to go anywhere but the US. I have been all over the US and seen many wonders. Thanks for sharing my friend. Hope you have a wonderful day!

My name here is the initial of my name. This is usually the ID that I use in forums. As for the avatar, it is the default that I was given. I don't usually upload my picture so I prefer to use whatever is given.

Hi Sjlskl. Well at least you will never forget your name on here. Makes it easy. The avatar is your choice but I want something that people will recognize me for. I wouldn't upload a picture of myself or my husband but I think the dogs is okay. Thanks for sharing.

I chose this name cuz it's just simply one of many names i've had in mind when me and my band were brainstorming for a name. I chose my avatar cuz i love kakashi hatake from naruto anime and computer graphics art.
