Choosing a screen name with a letter starting in the top half of the alphabet is as important as an attractive photo and a fluent headline in the online dating game, reveals an analysis of the best ways of finding love in the digital world.
Choosing a screen name with a letter starting in the top half of the alphabet is as important as an attractive photo and a fluent headline in the online dating game, reveals an analysis of the best ways of finding love in the digital world, and published online in the journal The researchers wanted to find out what approaches would maximise the chances of converting online contact between men and women into that all-important first face to face meeting, using published research on the art of attraction and persuasion.
That's because several measures of success, such as educational attainment and income are linked to names higher up the alphabet, added to which search engines sort names alphabetically.
But choose carefully, say the researchers, who recommend looking at the profiles of other people you find attractive and using a similar screen name to theirs.
The study findings were pooled and synthesised to come up with a list of dos and don'ts for online dating, from creating a profile to making an approach.
Because when you’re dating online, which is an extremely competitive medium, you need every advantage you can get.The usernames are made up of two words joined together, each picked from one of the category lists above.Select a category, and click on the "get usernames" button.I think the best combinations of usernames are generated when you have something like "emotions" or "adjectives" for the first category, and then pretty much any other category after that...Some of the combinations really make you laugh out loud.
