Should I change my profile name?

A few people now have said that they find my user name off putting and it has made them hesitate to connect with me

I used to be Faerylight. Then TaoTeChing. But coming back to SW's in a darker space personally and not enjoying the site as much due to all the political b/s I chose a more appropriate name for the time Dragonsballsack

But I'm really enjoying myself at the moment and connecting to some really lovely people ❤❤❤

So I was wondering if I should change my name to something less off putting and more positive like Dragonsballsacksoflove?

It's weird because I seemed to feel you but couldn't place you.
Like that itch you can never scratch...
But over time I became comfortable with you none the less.
Though after all this time I treat my account differently as well.

A rose by any other name is still a rose....

Call yourself what you will, eventually you tend to shine through.
The interactions you choose to take on are of your violation and are subject to your own whims.
That is what shapes the spaces we carve out here for ourselves.
Not what we call ourselves.

Dragonsballsack is a beautiful thing in my opinion.
Not what I'd call you, but beautiful in it's own way.
if theres a single thing to be learned from sw, im pretty sure it is this - do what you like and want because its what you want. not for anyone or anything else. the swinds are fickle, ever changing, unreliable, and apt to completely stop for no discernible reason. just do the stuff you like and what makes you happy. everything else has to work itself out in time.

@blackguard That's great advice, thank you 😊
Do as you please. If someone finds it's off-putting, then I highly suggest you keep it just to bother them.😉

Hell, I get mocked by haters just because I've changed it so many times and don't keep my pfp the same. You can't please everyone here, nor should you. You're here to be yourself.🌷

@MoonlightLullaby so true, thank you.
@Dragonsballsack You're welcome

A rose by any other name is still a rose.
And although I only recently connected with you, I enjoy your point of view. So call yourself whatever you like, I'll still appreciate you!

Keep it if you like it. I keep thinking you are a guy with that name, and have to look at the F to remind myself you’re female. It’s definitely a masculine name, but it’s original.
If you do change your name, will you at least explain the story behind this current name, pretty please? I’m legit curious.

Leave your name alone......dont let anyone try and change you or that aspect!! Enjoy!! 😊
Please don't change it, it's hilarious 😂 I always wanted to say this.

Maybe try dragonsnutsack?
Dragonsballsack · 46-50, F
@DownTheStreet good idea,
though that would remind me of peanuts and make me hungry. Talking of peanuts maybe elephantsnutsack 🤔
Gangstress · 36-40, F
Eh. I love your username. Its funny and inventive.
I see people use inanimate objects they see on their desks so at least you're not potplant123 or squash69
Dragonsballsack would make people wonder what is that.

Dragonsballsacksoflove would confirm what people were wondering about.

the fact that we actually got to choose our own names at some point in our adult lives and we choose names like dragonballsack

I was originally going to say it didn't bother me

But now I think the edition is the way to go
theAlchemist · 56-60, M
No. The sort of people bothered by your username are too prissy and prudish to be worth any attention.
That’s an awesome name! It’s wry, smarmy and hilariously sarcastic. I say keep it.
IronHammer · 61-69, M
Your username doesn't bother me and wouldn't stop me connecting with you.
Don't change your username. I recognize and love you.
Adogslife · 61-69, M
I don’t think you came here to change for others. Be who you are.
Docdon23 · M
I Like it--is shows you have character and spunk!
Dragonsballsack · 46-50, F
@Docdon23 why thank you! 😊
I think its a funny name, makes me smile when I see you around
KingofPizza2 · 36-40, M
I find this one funny - though Dragonsballsacksoflove is good too.

If I remember right they keep extending the time between name changes though so be careful with what you choose as you may be stuck with it a while!
Dragonsballsack · 46-50, F
@KingofPizza2 I was only kidding re the dragons ballsacks of love 😆

But thank you 😊

I think DBS suits me and I'm comfortable with it

I can understand why people are put off though

@Dragonsballsack What’s wrong with it though? When Goku collects the 7 dragon balls he’s got to store them somewhere, he can’t just juggle them indefinitely now can he?
Dragonsballsack · 46-50, F
@KingofPizza2 Exactly!!! Well, it turns out that not every one is as attuned to the fantasy genre, and are very visual to boot
DeluxedEdition · 26-30, F
Your name if fine ❤️ They sound like a prude
Slade · 56-60, M
Don't you dare!
Dragonsballsack · 46-50, F
@Slade 🤗

Keep it. It's an attention getter.
