The very first reason is very elementary, the potential for creating attraction by choosing the right nickname for your profile is enormously petite. How do I know? Because I’ve researched what truly creates attraction on dating sites, if you want to, you can repeat one of my experiments and check the results for yourself. It goes like this: create a female dating profile on a popular site and have female test subjects log onto it. The profile will begin to receive messages from guys. Have the female test subjects tell you who they like, who they don’t like, and why.
You will find that women work in pretty much the same way you do, they care a lot about pictures. There are other significant factors as well, but as for the profile name – think about it, attempt to switch sides the situation in your head. If you look at girl’s profile, how much does the name she’s chosen matter in your overall assessment of her attraction? It’s little significance is dwarfed by more significant things, you say? Yup, that sounds about right.
Looking for the right profile name to help you succeed at online dating is like looking for the right shoelaces to help you run quicker.
The 2nd reason is this: When a doll looks at your profile she will instantly begin attempting to figure you out. She’ll notice little details, she’ll ponder and analyze them, attempting to understand what kind of man you are and what kind of personality you have. If your nickname is “HandsomeDoctor” damsels won’t think “Hm, he must be a splendid doctor!”, they’ll think, “Hm, this guy’s indeed attempting to impress, he’s very likely compensating for something”, or simply, “Wow, what a douche, calling himself HandsomeDoctor!”
There’s at ot of resources out there that want to help you create you profile name, there are automatic generators, and even a WikiHow! But let me display you a quote from it’s list of “good” names:
PRINCECHARMING: This name suggests someone who is a romantic. A woman would likely expect him to arrive on a white pony, wearing a cape (which he would of course eliminate to lay across a puddle for her to cross without getting her footwear raw).
Earnestly, who’s written this?! How stupid do they think chicks are?! “Oh, he calls himself Prince Charming. he must be very romantic!” That’s not the way it works! “He calls himself Prince Charming. what a dork!!” is a much more likely reaction.
An here’s the problem we need to be aware of: Choosing the right profile name won’t help you much in creating attraction, but choosing the wrong profile name can make you seem less attractive. If you attempt to use your name to display attractive qualities you’re likely to end up hurting your chances. A lot of the names you’ll find in profile name generators or lists of “good” profile names do exactly this, they scream “I’m overcompensating because I’m not used to chicks liking me!” or “I don’t understand basic social rules!”
At its core, online dating is all about creating the right impression without looking like you’re attempting to impress, most guys end up doing the opposite.
So what should you do instead? Firstly, keep it elementary, something neutral that’s effortless to reminisce is good. It can be a real name or something from a book or a movie, whatever, as long as it doesn’t sound like you’re attempting to impress someone. It can be a random, meaningless word made from combination of letters in your name. Ggoogle it to make sure it’s indeed meaningless, however, you don’t want to accidentally call yourself “Dung beetle” in Finnish!.
Secondly, spend your time on the things that indeed matter when it comes to creating attraction on dating sites.
