For example: If you go really Alpha with your username (i.e.
The Warrior Within), be careful it doesn’t make you sound like some arrogant jerk or someone who’s “trying too hard.” If you’re not sure how it makes you sound, you can always ask a few friends what they think. (Or you could just hire Vi DA to do it all for you.)Usernames pack a lot of wallop into ~16 characters or less.
Cringe-worthy ones are kind of like an earthquake – they can do a lot of damage in a very short amount of time.File this under obvious, but stay away from violent words when picking a name.And yet that’s exactly the image usernames like “Lifetime Love4U”, “fit4another” and “lookin2committ” project.When you make your username about her, it gives the impression you don’t have anything positive to highlight about yourself.That means nothing with the numbers “69” in it, references to rides on either a bologney pony Nothing about a random string of numbers and letters, like “DR42785”, communicates that you have brains and creativity to spare.
Neither does tacking a few numbers on before or after your name, or mentioning the city where you both probably live.
Online dating is scary enough for a woman, don't creep her out before you've even messaged her.
You also don't want to sound like all you think about is getting laid, so nix the sexual references.
A POF username, for instance, is impossible to miss: That means what you choose to call yourself gets all wrapped up with your appearance when she’s deciding whether to respond to you.
And chances are she’ll make that decision within 3 seconds (usually much faster), because that’s how quickly first impressions can be formed.
You know the old saying about first impressions, and how you only get one chance to make them? You can have the most handsome, photogenic dating photo in the world, but tacking a horrible username on it has roughly the same effect as that iceberg had on the Titanic.
