Best online names for dating profiles
Most fake profiles don’t take time to fill in all the sections, or have trouble with correct grammar, or even basic English.
Though I’m sure that’ll change if the fakes care enough to read this article—but don’t worry, they don’t.
An analysis about online dating published in the journal Evidence Based Medicine suggests that men are drawn to online profiles in which a user name signifies physical fitness, while women prefer user names indicating risk-taking. The joint data analysis, by researchers with Queen Mary University of London and the University of Texas, found that choosing internet dating handles that begin with a letter in the first half of the alphabet is as important as uploading a flattering profile pic or crafting the perfect introductory headline.
"Initial interest was best captured through: a desirable screen name starting with a letter in the top half of the alphabet; an attractive still picture; and a fluent headline message," the paper says.
"Those embarking on this medium can use the evidence-based approach from the outset," the researchers wrote.
"Those already registered should update the profile.
If a single you’ve contacted can’t answer basic questions, just gives you one or two-word answers, or gets angry that you’ve questioned if they’re legitimate or not, then move on.

So, how can singles wade through the muck and find true love?A Singles’ Dating Convention member sent this to me: “I’ve recently joined a different singles’ site and am running into the same issue I’ve had with the previous ones I’ve been involved in.It seems that somehow my profile targets only those that are looking for money, or are spam. For example, the other night I got a message from a lady on Plenty Of and responded to her and then she quickly responded giving me her Yahoo screen name to IM her.Screen names beginning in the top half of the alphabet may spell success in dating, according to the researchers. researchers have previously described this phenomenon as "alphabetical discrimination," and note that lists are often in alphabetical order.
That’s because high achievers with names nearer to the beginning of the alphabet have been linked to educational attainment and higher incomes. "Those in the lower quarter of the alphabet will be lost in the bottom of the pile if you start at the top," the Queen Mary and University of Texas team wrote. Negative associations from words such as "Little" or “Bugg" should be avoided in screen names, the British and American researchers said, though they said playful-sounding names such as "Fun2bwith" appeared to be effective.
Unless the online dating site is going to go to the extra effort of meeting the single in person, doing a background check, and taking their online profile pictures for them (like Findthe It Factor.com, a personalized dating service), then “verified” means nothing more than the faker has access to a credit card.
