Having a great username for your dating profile is a must

Something is Better Than Nothing

If you’re struggling to write about yourself, don’t sweat it. Get something down on paper and loaded up and come back to it later. Having ANYTHING up is better than a profile that has NOTHING up. It shows like you have no commitment to the process if your profile isn’t filled out. You may be missing out on matches that think you aren’t committed to the process just because you have nothing up.

Put up whatever you have now and then come back to it tomorrow and edit. Keep coming back until you’re happy with it or until you find somebody. Just don’t have a blank profile or one that says “will get to this later!”
