The right time to tell your name

Should I reveal my real name in an email?

Online dating with Parship is a serious and anonymous approach to find a long-term relationship with sophisticated singles. But, when is the right time to tell your real name? Should you reveal your real name straight away and in an email?

Dear Nafsika,

I have started communicating with 2 of my contacts and they have asked me my name. Do you think it is too soon to tell them?

Best Wishes,



Dear Teresa,

No, I don't think it's too soon. People get to know each other by asking each other for information and it's natural for people to want to know who they're talking to.

Best Wishes, Nafsika
