The biggest reason first dates don't lead to second dates is "unmet expectations".Mention your ex in your profile It suggests you're not ready for a new relationship.
The most successful photos are taken in daylight, using an SLR camera (not a smartphone), and show just one person, not a group. Include a photo of you engaged in an interesting activity Like playing an instrument, a sport, or in an unusual location.
These photos create the most conversations because they break the ice.
It is worth spending a bit of time trying to find the right one – first impressions count, and this is the first thing people read about you.
If you have tried online dating before, you will probably be aware that there are a lot of bad usernames out there.
Secondly, avoid anything remotely sexy or seductive – it will give the wrong impression.
Silly, fun, dorky, romantic (within reason), creative or even tender are good for usernames. We also need to remember the rules we learnt for creating our username, as they still apply here: Did any of these headlines appeal to you?
You may be an awesome business woman, project manager, director etc but your username is not the time or the place to showcase this. Here we have a few more words to play with and our second opportunity to make a good impression and attract people to click on our profile. If you’re still feeling stuck and uninspired, you could just stick to a headline that describes your USP (which we looked at last week).
If you think of your dating profile as a shop full of goodies then your headline and username are your shop window dressing that are used to attract people inside.
His name makes me chuckle because it’s a bit silly, but it shows he has some imagination and already I know I have something in common with him.
Frank number two is making his username work hard for him rather than wasting this great opportunity to attract people from the get-go. How much easier would it be to send him an email than the first Frank? But also, crucially, it’s going to be much, much easier to remember the name of the second Frank, so if you want to find him again the next time you’re online, you will. Have a look back at some of the things you came up with about yourself last week.
Just a note on this: if you are stringing words together as above, do use capital letters as I have done so that it is easier to see what the words say when put together.
