Buying a professional online dating profile

Most people take one of two wrong tacks when coming up with an online dating username: 1) Putting ZERO thought into it: Bill10247, Claire T, Ally Cat 2) Putting minimal thought into it, using a literal description: Tall Doctor, Gorgeous Goddess, Fun2Be Around The problem with these efforts, of course, is not that they’re “bad”, but rather that they’re BORING. All of them are plays off of real names, idioms or catchphrases, which is why they evoke smiles from readers.

There’s nothing unique, memorable or distinguishing. One of my favorite usernames was The Goose Whisperer, written for a client named Bobbi in 2005. So if you’re wondering how to come up with a clever name that gets attention, and attracts a like-minded person with a great sense of humor, I have an exercise that can help you come up with usernames just like the ones I mention above.

But, ultimately, if people don’t find your profile attractive, you’re not any better off than you were before. With a bad profile and Ok Cupid A-List, it’s possible you’ll just be rejected more and faster. Choosing profile pics this way has been known to increase Tinder matches by 200-400%.

On the other hand, it’s possible to be extremely successful on Ok Cupid’s free version if you have an optimized profile.
