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.I’m quite sure our readers are not going to copy them for their own personal usage. The most memorable (in a good way) were a Blond Moment, Polyglotapus, and Toe_Tap_N. I’ve swiped, I’ve messaged, I’ve boldly gone where no right-thinking relationship-seeker has gone before (to see a vampire movie on a first date), all in the name of finding love, or at least a cool guy to hang out with.Sure, having the perfect name on your profile never outright guarantees success.
You can also Start a Name Contest and invite your friends to suggest names.
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.
Why do I think that usernames make a difference, when everyone knows that it’s all about the profile and photo?
Because when you’re dating online, which is an extremely competitive medium, you need every advantage you can get.
