The Hey/Hi/Hello Headline Don’t use some form of greeting. You might as well have said “I’m on here because I want to meet women” or “Single and Ready to Mingle.”Use this rule of thumb: if it’s been printed on a mass-produced t-shirt, you might want to avoid it.
The Most Special Snowflake Headline It’s great that you’re a vegan, a Jehovah’s Witness, a Cross Fit enthusiast, and a CEO who only dates models.
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.
Bobbi had a farm with geese in the yard and instead of using The Horse Whisperer, which was way too overdone, we changed one word to great effect. It’s in Volume 2 of my Finding the One Online audio series, and is the cherry on top of your new online dating experience.
But if your headline is going to advertise how “unique” you are – and how strict your parameters for the perfect woman can be – then don’t expect to get many responses.“Vegan biker and techie looking for blonde, in shape, environmentally conscious gluten-free artist” isn’t exactly going to reel ‘em all in.
This is just a more annoying, particular variant of The Captain Obvious.
A great username is a differentiator – a unique brand name – something that completely sets you apart from every other person on a dating site.The “It Ain’t Easy Bein’ Sleazy” Headline Please don’t include the phrase “DTF” (or any of its variants) anywhere in your online dating profile.(Yes, we’ve seen it, we just wish we hadn’t.)Your headline isn’t the place to advertise that you’re only in the market for a friend with benefits. If you’re not looking for something serious, that’s fine.So if you’re interested in optimizing your profile and beating out the competition right off the bat, a catchy dating headline is absolutely essential to piquing a woman’s interest and getting her to click on your profile instead of the other guy’s.On POF and Millionaire Match, headlines are almost impossible to miss in her search results, so yours needs to make a good first impression.
