And while those micro-decisions seem unimportant, they add up and do matter, because you’re only as good as the profile you craft.So how do you create the kind of online identity that will land you a first date?The creative process can feel a lot like having writer’s block; those are the moments you resort to “Iam Mike1234” or “Sunflowers1982” —plain and blah.
I’ve often used variations of a song title as a catchy screen name. Because it adds personality to your profile and invites someone who shares your passion for music to stop and take a digital peek.
Don’t be surprised if he or she fills in the blanks with the second line of the song.
This can make your profile look like more like a library card instead of someone whose personality should be shining.
Just like a great magazine headline, in order to grab his or her attention, you need an eye-catching screen name for your dating profile.
I will show you how to create an attention-grabbing, unique username that represents you and a matching mantra to help you stand out in the crowd.
When I polled Facebook users for their tips on creating usernames I got vague advice like “be yourself” and “be authentic,” “use your name,” and comments such as “usernames are not at all important, as long as they are not terrible.”Imagine you found 20 people online attractive.When picking a username, opt for incorporating more desirable traits rather than ones with negative connotations, the researchers wrote.Stay away from words like “little” or “bugg” in them, as they “are often associated with inferiority,” the study noted.But finding a memorable one isn’t always that easy, as your favorite choice might already been taken.Having an eye-grabbing rock star screen name goes hand in hand with posting a great primary photo in your online dating profile.This winning combination’s goal is stop someone in their digital tracks so they can read your profile to get to know you.
