A couple of woman have asked me for that information which I thought was kind of odd because some woman like to act like employers and check out your Linkedin profile.

How many ladies on here ask for a last name?

Most will say they do but I don't until after we meet. Then again I am very careful when meeting someone and I meet them during the day in a crowded mall and I drive myself. I don't have them pick me up or pick them up. If there will be a second date (or rather a proper first date) then I ask for a name. However, several have offered their last names upfront.

Interestingly many years back I did ask for a last name and I found out a few things before meeting, such as marriages or sex offender. I figure since I won't ever see most again I don't bother anymore. I know, sounds like a contradiction but am more careful about meeting now and rarely meet anyone from dating sites anymore.

If they call me from their cell phones or landlines, their full names show up anyway. I never checked anybody's "credentials" before meeting them, I am not that paranoid. Most people are exactly who they say they are. Some are annoying online, they are also annoying offline. If the chemistry is right, I can let some white lies slide.

I am simply not compatible with uptight, paranoid, overly suspicious folks who act like they work for CIA or the FBI.

I don't ask for it, but I can usually find it on my own.

I wouldn't hang out with anyone that I didn't know their last name.

What is this? A drug deal or a date? LOL

Granted, I haven't done a lot of online dating... but the guys I've actually met volunteered their names before we met. So I've never had to ask. I think if I didn't know/they didn't volunteer that, I would ask on that first "getting to know you" date--I have no qualms about meeting someone in a public place while not knowing their last name (then again, I am horrible with names anyway so maybe they've never been a big thing for me).

Haha...the problem with asking them to give me their last name before meeting is that they then might ask for mine, which I'd rather not reveal until later. I don't even tell them my real first name- just a nickname.

So basically what you are saying is it's ok for men to reveal their personal info but a woman shouldn't have to??
