Dating site puns Livesex cam chat nigeria
It’s the first thing potential dates see, and as this humorous article indicates, it makes a big impression (sometimes unintentionally).
It’s either a huge advantage, a huge disadvantage, or a missed opportunity! You can check out this link with a decent round-up of some of the very worst username strategies, but there are a lot of more mundane things that make for bad usernames.
Earlier this year, writing for Motherboard, Daniel Stuckey proclaimed Tinder—the geo-location hook up app that matches users together only after both have approved of each other—to be the end of online dating as we know it.
In light of that, I asked a bunch of Ok Cupid users who had decent usernames if I could include them here as examples, so you can get a feel for what works well!
(Again, this is an “only if the shoe fits” example.) : Potentially makes you sound drinky.
But if you live a lifestyle in which you do enjoy whiskey fairly regularly, then that shouldn’t be a problem; the rest of your profile is going to be so well-written and whip-smart that you won’t sound sloppy or alcoholic. (Don’t forget that I can help with that, haha.) Above you have a few examples that I made up to illustrate a point.
There’s nothing bad here, but it doesn’t elicit a huge reaction other than “oh, I guess that guy likes to ski/be outdoorsy.” We can do even better than this, but it’s certainly not bad. Phantom Scrollbooth – Pretty good : It’s a bit geeky and witty; relates you to beloved children’s book that heavily features math, and makes a subtle joke that shows levity and a sense of humor. Obviously, if you don’t get the pun because you’re not familiar with this book, or you didn’t particularly like the book much, then it wouldn’t work so well.
But if the shoe fits, then this is a fun playful username that sets you apart.
: It’s kind of inane (unless you’re a UI designer by trade who actually deals with scroll bars and such).
