My username combines my first name and a nearby street.The street name carries connotations (like Soho in NYC), and it reflects the sort of person I am, the type of interests I have, etc.When your message pops up in her inbox, it’s the hook that makes her want to read it.
I’m quite sure our readers are not going to copy them for their own personal usage. The most memorable (in a good way) were a Blond Moment, Polyglotapus, and Toe_Tap_N.
Not only is it a major turn off, but why are you taking up precious online real estate with a reason to not like you? Women are attracted to alpha males, and have been since the dawn of time. Don’t make her think you’re not one before she’s even read your profile.
Now that you know what goes into an awesome username, it’s time to take yours from “Meh” to “I need to know more about that guy.” Chances are the same could be said for your profile – and that’s just what the professional writers at Vi DA do.
There’s nothing unique, memorable or distinguishing. One of my favorite usernames was The Goose Whisperer, written for a client named Bobbi in 2005. So if you’re wondering how to come up with a clever name that gets attention, and attracts a like-minded person with a great sense of humor, I have an exercise that can help you come up with usernames just like the ones I mention above.
Bobbi had a farm with geese in the yard and instead of using The Horse Whisperer, which was way too overdone, we changed one word to great effect. It’s in Volume 2 of my Finding the One Online audio series, and is the cherry on top of your new online dating experience.
Studies have shown the best usernames for men seeking women begin with letters A-M.
