Cool screen names for online dating
As someone who has been an online dating coach since 2003, I’d venture to guess that I’ve not only seen more usernames than just about anyone on the planet, but I’ve written more of them as well.
Why do I think that usernames make a difference, when everyone knows that it’s all about the profile and photo?
My username combines my first name and a nearby street.
The street name carries connotations (like Soho in NYC), and it reflects the sort of person I am, the type of interests I have, etc.
Whatever it is, being outdoors and/or keeping fit is important to you. For the yogi/spinner, try Stretch NCycle, Spin2Fit, or Downward Digging It. In the meantime, you want to make sure your match is into the same things you are.
If you’re a hardcore athlete, try Live2Run, Bike Swim Run, or Phitness Phreak. Of course, you’ll mention it in the profile, but take this opportunity to show how creative you are (and how specific your references can be.) Ygritte And Go, Gamr Grl, Tiny Trekkie, Mendelivelife, Arwen Star, and STEMIAM might be some good options. You follow the latest trends, can spot a Chinatown-fake Gucci a mile away, and always have the right shoes for the right occasion.
While we don’t usually get a chance to choose our given name, we can choose our dating username, and that can give us a head start on meeting someone special.
Your username should tell people something about you.
I also tend to steer clear of ones that include their astrological sign. In those cases, I might not avoid them just based on what’s in their profile.
When you’re online dating, the first thing you see after the person’s photo is their username.
Choosing a username might seem like a throwaway task, but it’s way more important than you think.
Creating a memorable username is a smart way to appeal to the type of people you want to attract.
The journey of finding the right kind of person for yourself begins with you selecting a username that is clear, easy to remember, quirky/fun, and positive.
Because when you’re dating online, which is an extremely competitive medium, you need every advantage you can get.
