Try not to typecast yourself with a username that indicates a niche hobby or interest.
It may help you meet like-minded people, but think of all the people who won’t pick you just because they don’t share that one interest. Researchers were surprised to discover that this usually backfires with both sexes: At worst, people think you’re lying; at best, they think you’re materialistic.
