Helpful Tips


Enter Full Names Carefully: If you've only heard "Josh," there's a chance it could be "Joshua" on official documents. When sharing names, get the full version. It's all part of getting to know someone better.

Verify Spelling: A casual conversation about the unique spelling or pronunciation of names can ensure you've got it right.

Birthday Assistance: If birthdays come up in conversation, noting the exact date can be a plus. But remember, it's the genuine connection that counts most.


Skip on Accuracy: If you're entering details based on memory, a quick, friendly confirmation can make you safer when you meet.

Settle for Nicknames: They're great for friendly chats, but when it comes to making sure you know who someone really is, knowing their full name can be key.

Don’t Discriminate: Don't assume details based on demographics; always aim for accurate information about individuals.
