    Re: Help me please

    Do you mean that Dreamy Eyes is better than Dreamy Glance (as a nick name)...?

    If it right
    Can you tell me Why (Dreamy Glance) is not advisable..?

    A glance is quick look at something or someone. A glance is too quick to convey a feeling of dreaming. you might say " a nervous glance". When some one is dreaming of something she might glance at something distracted but I doubt if you can call her glance a "dreamy glance".

    What about "Dreamy Gaze", so that you can keep "G" and also have a nice "z"?

    Re: Help me please

    The better reason to me is that we can use eyes as metonymy for the whole person. One part of your standing in for the whole. A glance is an action and doesn't work as well.

    Dreamy Glance is contradictory -- A glance is too fast to be dreamy.
    I don't like Dreamy Gaze at all. Sounds like you can't concentrate. But it's a personal choice.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: Help me please

    The title of your thread does not give much clue to your question.

    Here are some helpful ideas that Raymott posted once:


    Here some useless titles (in my opinion):
    Help me with this word
    Question
    Urgent help needed!
    Hi!
    Grammar Q
    How should I say this
    Is this correct?
    Idiom meaning

    Here are some useful titles:
    Pernickety - what is it?
    IELTS exam information, please
    should or shall
    for the want of a nail ...
    future perfect
    trash - is this a verb?

    So: Help choose a nickname would have been better for you.
