In Finding the One Online, I give you 7 hours of audio, a 180 page transcript, a 35 page workbook – and tips on everything from choosing the right site, to writing a compelling online dating profile, to taking the right photos, to flirting effectively via email so that every single person will want to meet you in person. What’s the most memorable username you’ve ever seen on a dating site?
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.
And when your ideal partner is scrolling through hundreds of names – Sally102, Jen NYC1, Lawyer Gal – a great username can be the very reason that someone contacts you. And you become convinced that usernames don’t matter. In my opinion, a username should be a pun or a play on words. Wine Not – for the wine aficionado Lady Go Go – for the world traveler Bach To Bach – for the classical music enthusiast Tender Legal – for the soft-hearted lawyer See the common thread?
Along those same lines, don’t pick a name that sounds gross, icky, or just plain unappealing , like these guys did: Mr_Sluggo (he hates salty food! ), IDon’t Have Ebola (don’t link your profile with disease in her mind) or Primate1967 (who wants to date a monkey? File this under obvious, but a brief glance through my most recent Ok Cupid matches made me realize I have to point it out: stay away from violent words when picking a name.
Online dating is scary enough for a woman, don’t creep her out before you’ve even messaged her. The name you choose should look like you put some actual thought into it.
Grab a piece of paper, and write down some words associated with your occupation, some of your hobbies, and some adjectives or verbs you think sound interesting.

After all, an uncreative, slapped together username like “John123” subconsciously tells her you don’t take online dating seriously, you’re unimaginative, and you’re such a slug you can’t be bothered to spend a few minutes trying to impress the online dating multitudes (and specifically, her.)Don’t be that guy.
When choosing a username, avoid sounding desperate, like Lifetime Love4U, fit4another, or lookin2committ.
Now imagine opening your inbox, which is flooded with hundreds of messages.
Are you going to click on the one from “Asstazztick”? A strong username will increase your response rate from women, while a weak one will lump you in with the pile of other losers she’s already forgotten about.
Look at your list of hobbies, and think of some powerful words associated with them. How about “Rule The Ruck” or “All About The Blitz”. “Pack Your Passport” and “Around This World” suggest vacation adventures in her future if she responds to your message.
