Ideas for dating username
On my fourth or fifth date arranged through OKCupid I met my current boyfriend, who happens to be the most communicative, fun, and kind person I’ve met, online or off.I’ll spare you the gush-fest; suffice it to say we’re an awesome match.We frequently get requests for help from Plenty of Fish (see our review on POF) and Match (our review on Match) members for advice on making their online dating profiles more appealing.Typically, the alarm bells start clanging as soon as we see their profile taglines: 90% of these taglines are either typical (overused and boring) or slightly needy.As I learn all too regularly, there is a fine line between being funny and just plain scary.And one (me, obvs) should avoid that line when it comes to dating. ) I like it because 1) It’s a clever play on a name for another internet dating service and 2) It’s a little joke about Judaism, which you know I appreciate.If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.
Admittedly, my personal history of username selection isn’t without blemishes.
They were, to me, the pseudonym equivalent of a cheesy pickup line.
Much more appealing were earnest self-depictions or vague, consciously nonsensical noun mish-mashes.
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.
To this end I’ve been more successful, or perhaps luckier, than my friends.Too bad most of them are blowing a great opportunity to grab your attention, and make you want to dig deeper.
