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.Men like and notice confidence, attractiveness, independence and acknowledgement from women.Knowing this about men should give you some insight into what matters to guys and how you can appeal to his wants and desires. The first step before trying to create your username is to brainstorm everything there is to know about your descriptive CHARACTER TRAITS which could easily describe who you are: • Accepting • Adventurous • Articulate • Bold • Brave • Confident • Compassionate • Daring • Energetic • Joyful 2.is the decision all potential cyber-suitors have to make based on the information presented to them on the screen …and when done correctly a clever username can catch the attention of your ideal partner.Remember, women love positive, upbeat, confident men, and you are trying to create the impression that you are a confident, social, fun, and passionate individual.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.
Admittedly, my personal history of username selection isn’t without blemishes.
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.
The first step if you didn’t already know, is to have an attractive online dating profile photo to catch attention in the first place.
Without a great photo the chances are your username won’t even matter.
David Silver/Say Anything- Nothing makes me weak in the knees like a casual reference to late 80s/early 90s pop culture. I usually get so excited I’ll message something CRAY like, “Meet me at the Max in 1 hour? ” or, “Diane Court here.” Bagel Meet Bagel- Surprise, surprise. A visit or message from Mark3456 or jbt78 or Cardinalsfan may not catch my eye as quickly as I_shot_the_Sheriff_forreal. Because honestly, what people say in their messages, and their profiles, is way more important than their username. We’ve already done a post or two on profiles and messages, but rest assured, readers!
