Username advice for dating site
Lots of people, unfortunately, give this little or no thought, often choosing perhaps their first name with a series of numbers after it.
As we are trying to attract people here, not robots, it makes sense to try and come up with a name that appeals to the kind of people we want to attract.
Lovesbakingbread, for example, is harder to read and is actually a bit off-putting, the exact opposite of what you’re aiming for.
Let’s have a look below at some actual dating headlines in use now (the good, the bad and the ugly…) I literally cut and paste the first 15 I came across directly from two different dating sites today – so these are real, live headlines uncensored by me.

Firstly, the most important thing is to make sure you’re using correct spelling and grammar (apart from the capital letter usage as outlined above).
So, avoid names like: I’m sure I don’t need to tell you this, but they are just awful.
Being a woman on @okcupid already makes you a target for entitled, misogynist men who don't have good boundaries.
