How to Create the Best Online Dating Screen Name

You may think your screen name has not much to do with your onlinedating profile but you couldn’t be more wrong! I can tell you mostwomen will run screaming from ‘LadiesLoveMe69′ faster than you canimagine and men will go running for their covers from‘WeddingBells2009′. So here are a few easy tips to remember whencreating your online dating screen name.

First of all, don’tuse your real, full name. This has mostly to do with privacy issues andnot with attracting enough potential dates. Even though you may be opento the idea of online dating and you pay all your bills and view yourbanking information online it’s still not a good idea to list your fullname. With that being said, using your initials, your first name oryour nickname can be a great conversation starter.

Also, asyou may have noticed above, don’t take your screen name to theextremes. Yes, you can be funny, clever and/or charming but in a modestway. Nothing spells ‘stay away’ better than a lame screen name thatlooks more like a porno stars name. And let’s not even get started onthe kind of people who you’ll attract to your profile.

Don’tbe generic or obscure. If you use a name like ‘Dan23254′ you won’t becatching much traffic unfortunately. While it’s important to beyourself and to keep things in balance, you do need to do some‘marketing’ of yourself. Use an eye catching screen name that usesadjectives like ‘DanDigsDenmark’ or ‘PrettyPenny’. Be creative, alittle silly or maybe even a little daring!
