    Online Dating Username

    Looking for opinions about my online dating (match, Okcupid) username. A little background, I am a doctor who is entering the dating scene for the first time in a few years and am new to online dating. Should I make some mention of my being a doctor in my username, or would that be seen as pretentious/narcissistic? I was thinking something along the lines of dr(my first name) as my username. Thanks for the advice!

    No, do not mention your a doctor but they will ask what you do for a living. You can pick anything for a Username but I would not use your first name. I had a Ford Explorer built in 2005 so I used explorer05 Good Luck.

    no, I wouldn’t use your profession of doctor…you will get women who are looking for a doctor’s paycheck rather than a woman looking for YOU…

    I agree, if they want to know what you do, they will talk to topi and ask. Putting that out there might attract the wrong kind of person you want.

    I agree with everyone not to use doctor or doc because that might make others think doctor.

    Just avoid it and choose another one.
