“Being safe online means employing a bit of purposeful anonymity,” Bartz says.While you definitely should be honest on your dating ventures, don’t feel the need to give it all away all at once.Your handle might even affect the results of your job search or dating profile if it refers to something racy or inappropriate.
When creating your username, make sure it's: - Clear - Easy to remember - Appealing - Positive - Short These can be things you're passionate about, are interested in, some of your hobbies, your job, etc... Don't pick a word like "active" if you're a couch potato. When it comes to online dating, don't underestimate a good username. First impressions are everything so it's critical you have the best username possible so you stand out in a woman's inbox.Too many guys create lazy usernames that show a complete lack of effort. You'll stand out on your dating site and women will take notice.“Instead of opting for ‘funnyman89,’ choose a name that has a bit more creativity and wit involved — perhaps make a username that puts a comedic spin on one of your favorite hobbies or another personality trait,” Bartz tells Bustle.Many people don’t really take the time to think of good usernames because they tend to stick to variations of their real name.
