Unusual usernames for dating sites
You may be an awesome business woman, project manager, director etc but your username is not the time or the place to showcase this. Here we have a few more words to play with and our second opportunity to make a good impression and attract people to click on our profile. If you’re still feeling stuck and uninspired, you could just stick to a headline that describes your USP (which we looked at last week).If you think of your dating profile as a shop full of goodies then your headline and username are your shop window dressing that are used to attract people inside.
Let’s break down your profile in the following ways: to distinguish you from all the other daters on the site.It is worth spending a bit of time trying to find the right one – first impressions count, and this is the first thing people read about you.If you have tried online dating before, you will probably be aware that there are a lot of bad usernames out there.You don’t want to attract the wrong kind of attention. Personally, apart from the last one (not only too lazy to think of something, they can’t even be bothered to check their spelling) and the scary one about the ‘furnace of darkness’, I find the others fine, but perhaps a little bland. So when you’re creating your own headline, you need to ask yourself, does this pique interest? They appealed to my taste, but may well not appeal to yours.Thirdly, it’s best to leave work out of things at this point. Basically, I’m not on falling over myself to click the ‘read more’ button. In any case they are slightly more interesting and well thought out than the earlier ones, demonstrating a level of creativity and humour. With a little bit of effort you will probably come up with something that is better than 90% of what is currently out there!Secondly, avoid anything remotely sexy or seductive – it will give the wrong impression.
Silly, fun, dorky, romantic (within reason), creative or even tender are good for usernames. We also need to remember the rules we learnt for creating our username, as they still apply here: Did any of these headlines appeal to you?
The username you choose needs to work for you not against you, so ideally it needs to be: – which one are you more likely to click on?
The second Frank sounds infinitely more interesting to me than the first one.
"Electronics", bizarrely, works well for both sexes.
Liking Radiohead, Homeland, Pulp Fiction and The Great Gatsby are effective date words, and mentioning cats is fine, as long as you don't say "my cats".
