It drives me crazy to see usernames like that--I've identified myself to people at a party as "oh, I'm Ben's girlfriend," or the like, but only if that was their point of reference. and inevitably, those four words were followed by my actual name, so I don't just have to go by the girlfriend label. But in cyberspace, where you're identified by the one word or phrase of your choice, I'd hope that I'm more than just someone's girlfriend.

(I stumbled across your journal via a LJ community, but your username looks familiar for some reason. Were you ever a member at Estronet or Chickclick? my memory is being wonky.)

Sure, a point of reference is a polite way of establishing a connection when you meet somebody. "I'm Paul's daughter." "I'm the one who wrote that letter." "I was the girl in the weird mask." ...or whatever. But that's totally different than really identifying yourself as nothing but an extension of that other person!

Nope, I was never a member of those groups...but your journalname looks familiar too. We've probably stumbled across each other some time in the past... ...so if that's the case, nice to see you again!

nice to have found/re-found your journal, too. :)
