Ideas for online dating nicknames
Numbers = not remotely compelling, unless you manage to work the Fibonacci sequence in there and you’re an actual mathematician or something.
That would make them relevant and witty, and likely to stand out to similarly math-minded gals.
But if the shoe fits, then this is a fun playful username that sets you apart.
: It’s kind of inane (unless you’re a UI designer by trade who actually deals with scroll bars and such).
Your username, coupled with your profile picture, is the MOST visible thing in search results.
It’s the first thing potential dates see, and as this humorous article indicates, it makes a big impression (sometimes unintentionally).
Something playful and light, relevant to what you’re like, and funny if you’re a bit of a jokester. A username doesn’t have to encompass your entire personality to be good; it just has to be interesting and catchy enough to make someone want to click and learn a bit more about you.
These names are simple initiators to help you find the perfect username for your profile.
Of course, this will be paired with a GREAT profile picture, and a GREAT profile. Let’s analyze a couple usernames and think about what they convey to potential matches. Even if sex is important to you, you come off like a complete jackass if you actually spell that out with middle school shorthand.
These first ones are mainly designed with a straight guy in mind. As covered in the roundup link of bad username ideas, avoid anything sexxxxy here. The sex comes later; you can’t frontload it in a username.
I know, I know; none of the sites make it clear enough. Don’t create a totally random one that you gave a mere second’s thought!
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.
