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.
Try not to typecast yourself with a username that indicates a niche hobby or interest.
It may help you meet like-minded people, but think of all the people who won’t pick you just because they don’t share that one interest. Researchers were surprised to discover that this usually backfires with both sexes: At worst, people think you’re lying; at best, they think you’re materialistic.
The username you choose needs to work for you not against you, so ideally it needs to be: – which one are you more likely to click on?
