Clever online dating usernames
I started experimenting with each part of my online dating, starting with my username, my photos, profile and last the emails. It’s just common sense when you think about it, I mean…
you wouldn’t go on a date wearing swimming trunks, a dress shirt and boots right?
Mike is a marine, so we included a great photo of him in uniform. How can we tie being a Marine into his username in a way that women will find irresistible? A Marine is the modern day Knight, so what better name than Mike In Shining Armor?! This creates a connection between those pleasant feelings and YOU. If you were to use that, the girl will think you’re a boring pile of mush.
Using the positive association girls have with finding their Knight In Shining Armor. I know it’s a little confusing but I’ll make it crystal clear with these detailed examples. This would be a great name for a wrestler that 13 year old boys would find awesome but — for women? Something I see all the time is guys adding a bunch of numbers after their name. To connect to these pleasant feelings, your username should be any combination of the following: Funny, Dorky, Tender, Subtly Romantic, Silly, Creative. But the username — feelslike ZOOM — is AWESOME because it still hints at that love/excitement feeling that a girl finds attractive without being to mushy.
The reason for that shift was to combat harassment, but the company didn’t indicate that similar thinking is at work in its choice to ditch usernames.
In fact, requiring users to go by their real names seems like a way to open them up to harassment, since bad actors will have an easier time identifying people and contacting them off the platform if they wish to.
