This is, unsurprisingly, pretty strongly gendered: There are tons of men who are, say, 36, and list their dating age range from 20 – 35, or women who are 28 and list their dating age range from 29 – 44.
If you really won’t date someone your own age (or a few years older or younger), ask yourself what’s going on when you, a 35-year-old grown-ass man, feel like you would have more in common with a woman who just reached legal drinking age than with a woman two years your senior, who is much more likely to be in a similar place career- and experience-wise.
Some of the newer, younger-focused or speed dating sites ask only for a tagline and nothing else—even more the reason to ensure yours is well crafted.
Taglines are very similar to handles in that they offer a very short space with which to impress or attract someone.
For those who don't know, a tagline is the one-liner that introduces you to the other singles surfing the online dating sites.
On most online dating sites, the tagline is found at the top of every dating profile and next to everyone's photo and handle when appearing in a search list.
The obvious points of picking photos are to make them (1) flattering, and (2) accurate.But turning your dating profile into a laundry list of complaints isn’t going to get you what you want; at best it’s going to make you sound like a whiny baby, and at worst it’s going to make you sound like a huge racist. You sound like a bad Lifetime movie boyfriend, not a reasonably dateable person.It may be true that your interests are 69, anal, ass, bikini babes, masturbating, porn, vaginas and the beach.But not only does your handle need to be unique, it also needs to be personal, interesting and somehow indicative of who you are, without being off-putting, too long, or a challenge to pronounce.Although pronouncing your handle may seem counterintuitive, (this is dating after all) it will come in handy once you start meeting people.
