Ramifications of a rejection deters many from the dating scene. After all, how long can you brood and lament over what's gone?
Focus on your strength, turn your weaknesses into your assets and look forward at brighter prospective to get out of mourning over a guy who didn't deserve you in the first place.
It’s fun, and it adds a bit of much-needed intrigue to my day. Consider your intentions: What kind of people do you want to attract? “A name like Twiglet or Kit Kat sends a playful message, while Erininpajamas implies you work at home (or not at all).” That’s not to say that you have to stick to more literal names and avoid cleverness altogether—quite the contrary.
Until I click on the profile, I’m free to daydream about the person on the other end of the wink. Consider having some fun wordplay with your name or initials—Grish references a friend of hers named Alia, who lives in California and chose the catchy CAliafornia as her handle.
Could it be a blue-eyed guy with a quirky sense of humor? There is nothing wrong with Mr Nosferatu’s profile—he seems nice, has a solid job, cute pictures, and no visible scars. We’d go to an Italian restaurant (with lots of garlic items on the menu), and I’d carry a pointed stick in my little black tote, in case he tried to get, er, fresh after dinner. Dating is enough of a challenge without trying to figure out if your dinner partner is a member of the Undead! A few days pass, and I got emails from several cute guys with normal, friendly usernames. In just 11 letters, Alia manages to convey that she’s fun, witty, and proud to be a West Coaster.
