“Being safe online means employing a bit of purposeful anonymity,” Bartz says.
While you definitely should be honest on your dating ventures, don’t feel the need to give it all away all at once.
Thank god you made it clear in your username that you aren’t looking for a slut, because I was just about to message you and offer you my body.
As experts from consumer research group, Next Advisor, found, usernames may seem trivial or petty, but they are indeed the first thing other users see. Do I really want to be hitting up the cute, soon-to-be lawyer who proudly labels himself as “Sxy Frat Boy” or “Sit_On_My_Face69”? Because usernames are important, I spoke with Emily Bartz from Next Advisor about how to ensure that you make the most out of yours. Telling people that you’re funny is so not the same as showing people that you’re actually funny.
If you are at loss for username ideas, then you could opt to sign up on a website that generates usernames depending on the preferences that you have.
But opt for this only if you cannot think of any cool names for yourself.
Thanks S, for being the voice of reason and drawing that conversation to a close.
As I learn all too regularly, there is a fine line between being funny and just plain scary.
