Setting the right pof username is very important these days. As many users are using the search option, if you have the appropriate username, you might end up in the search list.
Choose Right POF Username
Usernames plays a vital role in describing your persona. In my opinion, if someone username is
loverboy12, I would definitely assume that the user is a minor or a kind of emo person that loves to play around or something like that. However, if his/her POF username is something like mattscott or something that goes with your name or last name, I would presume that that user is a serious of a kind and I would love to start chatting with him/her.
It’s not like this is 100% true or everyone in the Plenty of fish thinks the same. But this is what the study has proved.
Also, most of the usernames are so lame that you can tell them its fake. Like, stonerloverboy123654. This username is somewhat created for the sake of experiment or spam or something like that.
Overall, the point here is, your username should be good, catchy and shouldn’t sound fishy or spammy. Also, it shouldn’t contain lots of numbers. It must look legit.
As many users in POF uses the username search, it is not recommended to use numbers.
Usernames alone don’t do the trick. You must have a good profile pictures with the clear view of your face. Don’t message other users often. This may irritate them and can place you in the block list. So be genuine, have patience.
