Topics: Dating Site Username?
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.
A great username is a differentiator a unique brand name something that completely sets you apart from every other person on a dating site. And when your ideal partner is scrolling through hundreds of names Sally102, JenNYC1, LawyerGal a great username can be the very reason that someone contacts you.
The problem with these efforts, of course, is not that they’re “bad”, but rather that they’re BORING. There’s nothing unique, memorable or distinguishing. There’s nothing that evokes a smile. And so the names fall flat. And you become convinced that usernames don’t matter.
