Profile names for dating sites examples
Single Malt Brisket – Better : Grabs interest with a slight play on words; clearly indicates that you like a) whiskey and b) meat.
Anyone who isn’t comfortable with a partner who consumes those substances is likely to skip you, which is actually in your best interests if this username fits your vibe.
It’s the first thing potential dates see, and as this humorous article indicates, it makes a big impression (sometimes unintentionally).
It’s either a huge advantage, a huge disadvantage, or a missed opportunity! You can check out this link with a decent round-up of some of the very worst username strategies, but there are a lot of more mundane things that make for bad usernames.
Also avoid awkward SMS-speak like “u” for “you” and “4” for “for.” You’ll alienate more people than you attract, even if that is in fact how you communicate in short form like text messages or casual emails. Don’t you usually wait until a couple texts in to get that lazy with someone new? All this tells me is that you’re a dude (probably) who’s named Jeremy (probably) who may or may not have been born and/or graduated and/or created this profile in 1987. So don’t just go sticking in the number of your birth year or area code or whatever.
But if you live a lifestyle in which you do enjoy whiskey fairly regularly, then that shouldn’t be a problem; the rest of your profile is going to be so well-written and whip-smart that you won’t sound sloppy or alcoholic. (Don’t forget that I can help with that, haha.) Above you have a few examples that I made up to illustrate a point.
None of them force you really take time to think about that step, or let you fill out the other aspects of your profile while you ponder the all-important “username” field and come back to it once the creative juices are flowing. Check out this link about a JDate user who picked an icky name.
I confess I had no idea what “tossed salad” meant, but it turns out it meant something kinda kinky that did not convey what this gal intended.
These names are simple initiators to help you find the perfect username for your profile.
So, don't shy away from showcasing your true personality through the name.
