Men are quite visual and they’re instantly attracted to women based on what they finds physically attractive.After interviewing over 60,000 single men and women over the years there’s a few common things I can say men really find attractive in women.If you consider your online dating profile to be your personal advertising tool in the dating world, your username is your brand’s mission statement.Creating your username is actually the second most important step to finding and attracting your ideal partner online.As someone who has been an online dating coach since 2003, I’d venture to guess that I’ve not only seen more usernames than just about anyone on the planet, but I’ve written more of them as well.
Most people take one of two wrong tacks when coming up with an online dating username: 1) Putting ZERO thought into it: Bill10247, Claire T, Ally Cat 2) Putting minimal thought into it, using a literal description: Tall Doctor, Gorgeous Goddess, Fun2Be Around The problem with these efforts, of course, is not that they’re “bad”, but rather that they’re BORING. All of them are plays off of real names, idioms or catchphrases, which is why they evoke smiles from readers.
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.
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.
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.
