4 secrets to an online dating username that attracts your right click
When you’re online dating, there are two first impressions you make on a match – the impact you have at first click, when someone lands on your profile, and then the presence you exude in person at first blush.
When you think about that first online impression, what's the ONE thing that everyone will view before anything else? Your username. On most dating sites, your match sees this before anything else, and usually has to click directly on it in order to view your photos and written profile.
New research done by the Queen Mary University of London found that online daters pay a lot of attention to usernames -- and as someone who sits next to eDaters every day, I concur. I've seen both men and women balk at a username and pass someone awesome over entirely, just because of the first impression a username left on them. And I don’t want that to be you!
Ultimately what you're doing is branding your single self. What do you want your first digital impression to say about you?
In my Username Guide, you'll learn:
- 4 approaches to writing a unique username ... even if you're stumped
- The surprising results of a new study that focused on online dating screennames and what you should learn from it
- Simple things you probably didn't think about when writing your username (but that you should change)
