Ladies: are you a "Miss", "Mrs.", or "Ms." ?

spiced spiced
My wife uses "Mrs." — but she only uses a prefix if it's required. I'm not sure what I'd use if I were female.

How about you? When you have to use a prefix, which one do you choose?

I don't use it, because it doesn't really come up. If I have to check it or something, I check "Mrs.". I suppose I'll be using it as my son gets older. As of now, I say my first and last name when I'm addressing people.

I'd say I'm a Ms. I'm married, so definitely not a Miss. But I also didn't take my husband's name, so I don't feel comfortable being addressed as Mrs. with my maiden name. If someone who doesn't know me addresses me as Mrs. [Husband's Last Name] it doesn't bother me, though.

This exactly!

It comes up a lot for my wife because she works in a k-8 school where she is referred to as Mrs. We're traditional - and so is the school, so it's a good fit.

I use miss when it comes up. But that isn't too often.

I'm single and over 30, so I suppose I'm a Ms. Doesn't come up often though.

I'm a miss! Getting called ma'am feels weird.

Guess I'd have to go with Ms. since I'm not a Miss but I don't have my husbands last name.

I would go with Ms. since I am divorced. I think Miss is for a woman/girl who has never been married.

It's more professional to address women as Ms.

I agree, and when I have to address a woman in a business setting, without knowing her preference, I always use Ms. Occasionally, someone will correct it to Mrs. or Miss, but usually not.

I use Ms. for the most part I am no longer a Miss and don't use Mrs. since I am changing my last name and getting a divorce

I use Ms., Miss sounds like something you'd call a 12 year old.

I agree, I use Ms., as well. I also like that it is neutral as to your matrimonial state.

I'm a Ms. But, as far as my online personality goes, I always use Mrs. because I think it sounds more stately.

I'm married but don't use it at all, don't need to, everyone calls me by my first name and if they don't know it they always come up with something.
