Not to want to tell DP my mumsnet nickname?

So DP knows I go on mumsnet and has always been a bit fascinated by what goes on, sometimes I read him out funny bits etc.

Anyway, last night he asked me what my talk nickname was. I refused to tell him - not because of anything sinister (there's very little he doesn't know about me!) but because I like having a little corner of my life that is nothing to do with him and DS.

DP was quite taken aback that I refused to tell him and implied that I must have secrets to hide . Am I being unreasonable?

You're not...but I daresay if he comes on here for a lurk, he'll deduce it by reading this thread!!

I wouldn't tell dp my name.

He guessed it though (asked me if I couldn't have thought of something more original )

Well, to be honest he could find out my nickname any day of the week as we share the same computer at home and I have my mumsnet login saved in the browser (and password for that matter).

I think he was more taken aback that I refused to tell him myself!

He now refers to the mumsnet mafia and asks when sleeper cell 49 is going to be activated.

I didn't think DH knew my nickname but he does and was reading my posts last night after I'd gone to bed

MY Dh knows my nick. He actually thinks this is very boring. However he does say " go on, park in the M&T space" whilst shopping at Tesco, " no one from Mumsnet will be here!"

scootergirl!! At least DP asked, I suppose!

There's no way I would tell dh my name
Hunker wrote my old one on a parcel and I had all my old posts deleted and changed my name
Not out of anything to hide but privacy, you know.....

ooh you fox

I dunno - we're all entitled to a private life even on shared computers. My dp isn't above googling people to see if they're listed on the net somewhere - he's such a nosey sod.

You could always set up another talk name, put a couple of boring posts on with it and tell him that one [devil icon]

Liking your plan, Chocolate! Although I think on reflection I'd rather go with LL's idea and tell him I'm Cod (I don't think he'd believe I was Xenia, the lack of high-powered job and corresponding salary might give me away!)

I think I might have told DH once, but I hope he has forgotten who I am, i wouldn't tell him now, we are all entitled to a little privacy I reckon.
Mumsnet and drinking too much tea are my main vices now, which is a little tame in comparison to my 20s
Love your name as well, MissGolightly
