Signing up for a brand-new website is pretty straightforward … until it’s time to choose your screen name. Of course, it’s easier for some than others, but many people approach choosing screen names with a sense of dread and anxiety. After all, it’s how other community members will identify you permanently. We have created this helpful guide for choosing screen names that will stand the test of time — and trends — to avoid potential cringing and embarrassment for you later on.
1. Use your screen name to make a good impression.
In a world where identity is primarily online, our screen names are an essential identifier to help others recognize us. When joining an online dating community, that makes it one of the most crucial decisions you can make. Unfortunately, that can make you nervous if you’re enrolling for the first time and don’t know much about the community.
A simple guideline for most sites is to use some combination of characters that use your real name. You might want to be more discreet on adult dating websites if you don’t want people in your personal life to know you are exploring the lifestyle. While the community is non-judgmental and sex-positive, it doesn’t mean the outside world would feel the same way, especially if you’re sharing your love of being caned like a piñata at a birthday party.
If this is the case, you may prefer to have an alias of some sort. There are plenty of strategies you can use for choosing one. Let’s take a look at some of them now.
2. Nobody wants to date Person31X28.
Let’s get one thing out of the way: don’t be lazy about your screen name. A dull, generic name like this will immediately make people assume you’re not a human and deter someone who may otherwise be interested from reaching out.
Trust is one of the primary differentiators on adult dating sites. Everyone is upfront about what they want, and since some of the information they’re sharing is deeply personal, there’s a lot of truth testing.
If you want a generic label, you could choose an average-sounding name. Or you can be creative and let your screen name give a glimpse of who you are. We aren’t suggesting HugeHairyBallGuy, but you could do much worse if you’re a big person with big hairy balls.
3. You may have that name for decades!
What starts as a funny joke about the size and hairiness of your balls today might be the cringe-inducing shame of future you. Remember that the screen name you choose today might be one other members identify you with for years to come. Maybe you’ll always find ball jokes amusing (and frankly, we probably will, too), but for many people interacting with you on the site, it’ll be how they think of you when you communicate with them.
It’s worth considering how you want others to see you on the website. A screen name can reflect your interests or a particular characteristic or kink that you want to highlight about yourself. If someone is looking for a big person with big hairy balls and you believe it’s your best feature, then HugeHairyBallGuy might actually be your best bet.
Another approach might be to highlight an interest beyond sex, especially if you don’t have a particular fetish or kink and are just looking to find companionship along with sex. You may be surprised at how much fun it can be to find a like-minded sex partner who wants to Netflix-and-chill in between acrobatic fucking sessions.
Maybe you want to indicate that you’re looking for HairyBalls4BigTits, for instance.
4 It can assist you in avoiding a great deal of repetitive discussions.
Using a descriptive name can be very useful. It helps boost a conversation while avoiding obvious questions like “do you have hairy balls and like big boobs?”
It can also be a great icebreaker. For many people new to adult dating, it can be a little intimidating to suddenly be thrust into a world where you can be honest and open about what you want. There’s no tap-dancing around why everyone is on the site. Also, as a beginner, you may feel nervous about approaching someone and inquiring if they want to have sex. A good username can help give you an easy, low-pressure way into a conversation, from a flirty introductory opening to simply asking about how they chose that particular username.
You have your account, and you’re having a great time finding sex partners and having tons of fun, but you have now realized that perhaps going with that recommendation above was a terrible idea. Remember that your username (and profile picture) is how people identify you, and any change to that may confuse other members. Especially if they’re into hairy balls.
Signing up for a new site is pretty uncomplicated… until it’s time to pick your screen name. Of course, it’s easier for some than others, but many people approach selecting screen names with a sense of fear and anxiety. In a world where identity is largely online, our screen names are a crucial identifier to help others recognize us. Let’s get one thing out of the way: don’t be lazy about your screen name.
