I hope many people will find a far happier future by using the site carefully and heeding the advice given.
Get it right first time On the vast majority of dating sites your username is the only thing you cannot change once selected. It will be one of the first things that a dating site asks you to choose (if they require it) and we would therefore suggest if they do you stop there and have a think about it. Examples we have seen are “Long_D**k”, “Big_T***”, you get the picture.
Yes, you might be into these but you don’t want to make that obvious from the moment a woman searches for you! Plus a username like that does make you look a little childish, which again is a complete turn off. Try to mention something that sums you up in your username Try to bring something about you into your username, but only if it isn’t completely boring. With 1.5 million members all across the UK so there is bound to be someone near you.
It takes great courage for some of us to take this leap of faith; for me it has been successful.
For 'seekers' everywhere - have faith and good luck.
For some unknown reason people like to mention one of their body parts in their username, this is usually a complete turn off for the opposite sex.
These are probably fine on adult dating sites but are a definite no for mainstream ones. Do not mention romantic connotations Again a complete turn off for the opposite sex so avoid where possible.
Encounters Dating offers readers of The Times and The Sunday Times, an opportunity to find and connect with like-minded people for fun, love and romance.
Everyone is on a dating site to find romance and love, you don’t need to spell it out in your username.
Examples are “cupid_1122”, “I_Heart_U_11”, you get the picture. Don’t go for video game, cartoon or comic character names. Loads of you choose names that are character names from comics, video games or cartoons. A small fee is payable if you decide to make contact with other members, this covers our costs of running the site.
