, you should have quite a few notes, which will provide the content for your profile. It needs to be unique, so it is obviously quite challenging to find a one that is available and works for you.
Let’s break down your profile in the following ways: to distinguish you from all the other daters on the site.
You may be an awesome business woman, project manager, director etc but your username is not the time or the place to showcase this. Here we have a few more words to play with and our second opportunity to make a good impression and attract people to click on our profile. If you’re still feeling stuck and uninspired, you could just stick to a headline that describes your USP (which we looked at last week).
If you think of your dating profile as a shop full of goodies then your headline and username are your shop window dressing that are used to attract people inside.
Yes, it's true I was called a bad boy by my ex-girlfriend Loving life!
A recent study showed that words such as "skiing", "yoga" and "the ocean" help men get dates; "sweet", "running" and "dance" help women get dates online.
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?
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.
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?
The second Frank sounds infinitely more interesting to me than the first one.
