    Do people call you by your first name, middle name, or a nickname?

    It's basically a 50/50 for me. Some say Pottie, some call me Carl. I find it's mainly the closer friends that call me Carl on the regular.

    I usually go by Candy, I have noticed that Candace is more when the conversation is serious.

    for nick names I have and some people still call me-Glibber, Skim, Skimberley. I'm pretty sure there is a few more.

    Alot of people have a hard time pronouncing my first name (gillianne). So most will call me Gilly or Gillian or Gill ... I usually am puzzled when someone uses my full-name.

    Many people automatically call me Liz but if truth be told, I don't really care for it. I rarely tell anyone that either.

    When asked what I prefer to be called, I always say Elizabeth. I've noticed acquaintances call me Liz while close friends and family call me Elizabeth. Except ingy, he usually calls me Liz and he's really ever been the only person I didn't mind calling me that.

    Ingy's boy calls me Izzy and I've always loved it.

    Probably because Candy sounds like a stripper's name.

    Family or friends call me by my first name.
    RCer's generally call me twopoops, Mr. Poops, twoshits, etc.

    We do that because you introduce yourself as Twopoops! :lol:

    I didn't know your name until about 20 minutes after we started talking.

    as far as I know, people only ever call me shawn, unless they're yelling something profane at me. I get asshole a lot, or prick.
