Selecting a Username A good username should tempt potential partners to open your profile and learn more, Donaldson says, so you want it to stand out.Using just your name implies that you didn't put a lot of thought into it; plus, it's generic.It is unfortunate that so many people join dating sites but so few put a fair effort into writing a really good profile that makes them stand out from thousands of other users.I am not sure why people go through the trouble of signing up and filling all those questionnaires and then post a profile that looks like a copy of any other neutral, boring, profile full of cliches and types.I commented in parentheses throughout the profiles below what I thought of them and why: I gave this profile a passing grade because while it’s not great, nothing about it makes it terrible.
Then, do your research; think about what you are looking for, and find out how to attract that kind of person.
The dating profile headline is a one-time lightning-quick opportunity to show a little flair, and highlight something about your personality or a special interest.
The tagline can showcase your wit, a love of poetry, sense of humor, a romantic or philosophical nature, etc.
If the photos don’t cut it, we generally don’t click on the person. But if we make it past the photo, skimming profiles, the first thing you'll notice is the profile tagline.
This little ditty can compel us to read further, or it can cause us to roll our eyes and move on.
