For instance, “Gypsy” may spring to mind as a more colourful word than “traveller.” Step 4 – Create a shortlist of good usernames Review your efforts and pick out a shortlist of potential usernames – as many as you like. Dating nicknames that seem fresh and original now might strike you as cheesy or inappropriate later on.
Ideally, put your list away and keep it out of sight for a while, then see which nicknames make the best first impression.
I can not stand when there is nothing in a guys profile for me to respond to! One pic showed her in vibrams, and she had a thing in her profile about guessing what her tattoo means. Funny is great, but i think woman value sincerity a lot more.
guys need to leave hooks so that i actually have something to message him about. My question is, should i just go ahead and msg all of them while i’m feeling pretty confident or give it a week before i try a few more? If you don’t know what photo to use, post a bunch on the hotornot type sites. I’ve used pof and have met many great women from there, including my girlfriend.
Your dating “nickname” or “username” is the first thing that people will notice.
A great username is a differentiator – a unique brand name – something that completely sets you apart from every other person on a dating site.
And when your ideal partner is scrolling through hundreds of names – Sally102, Jen NYC1, Lawyer Gal – a great username can be the very reason that someone contacts you. And you become convinced that usernames don’t matter. In my opinion, a username should be a pun or a play on words. Wine Not – for the wine aficionado Lady Go Go – for the world traveler Bach To Bach – for the classical music enthusiast Tender Legal – for the soft-hearted lawyer See the common thread?
Step 5 – Choose your top three profile names Now that you have clear favorites for a dating username, choose just three.
You must have more than one option for your dating profile – it is surprising how many “original” nicknames are in use already.
