Today we are going to focus on helping you create a punchy, winning written profile for you to post online on your chosen dating sites.
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.
Lots of people, unfortunately, give this little or no thought, often choosing perhaps their first name with a series of numbers after it.
As we are trying to attract people here, not robots, it makes sense to try and come up with a name that appeals to the kind of people we want to attract.
Firstly, the most important thing is to make sure you’re using correct spelling and grammar (apart from the capital letter usage as outlined above).
So, avoid names like: I’m sure I don’t need to tell you this, but they are just awful.
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?
