Awkward?

Lately I have encountered a few people people who I have known before I was married so reintroducing myself feels so awkward. Is it just me or is it the weirdest thing to say I was Lauren ..... but now it's Lauren .....?

I dont think its too weird. You got married, so you are introducing yourself as your married name. Own it :) xxxoo

I don't think it's weird, but I do feel often like I'm telling people I got married who may or may not care. Like, "well, I recently got married, don't you want to know?"

I completely understand.. it's not weird but it does make you feel a little crazy.

I think its one of those things that sounds funny but isn't really? I mean, you can always word it as "Good to see you, blah blah blah, my name is Lauren ... now!"

I dunno. I guess it just is kinda funny.

Yes! I got married almost 7 years ago, but when I went back to work and had to introduce myself to someone, answer the phone etc, I had the hardest time, and usually screwed up and would say my maiden name!

I'm having trouble just remembering to use my new name! I am getting way better at writing it.. but for example if I am at a restaurant getting a table and they say "last name" I just blurt out my old name without thinking! I'll get used to it eventually... :)
