Funny or Foolish? Online Dating Username Examples

Creating an online dating username is fraught with difficulty. You may not even have considered using anything other than your name before but the reality is, that whatever you choose, people are going to read something into what you write and it will be the start (or end) of your relationship with them. In this article we look at some real life dating username examples and consider what people may be reading into them.

Worldtraveller is great username as it conjures up an expectation of someone who is well travelled or at least interested in travel and therefore open to new ideas, cultures and experiences. It must be backed up in the profile itself though to have any real success or the writer may just sound like a fraud!

Wellfun, Chilled, Coolguy etc. were probably chosen as light hearted and easygoing dating usernames. They are suitable if the writer is looking for fun and friendship only, but not necessarily so good if they are looking for a serious relationship. They don’t actually tell the reader anything about the writer or their interests and they certainly don’t demonstrate any serious or reliable qualities.

Centrallondonguy or some other geographically specific name works well to attract local potential dates. It doesn’t tell the reader anything about the writer though whereas changing it to something like Londoncyclist or similar would add an element of personalisation about the writers interests and therefore attract more specific attention from potential dates sharing the same interests.

Robster, Stevenzx, John25 etc. are the simplest format of username for someone who can’t think of anything else. They show a straightforward nature and confidence but reveal little else and will not jump off the page. Try combining your name with your number one passion and suddenly you will be telling your reader much more about you. E.G. Workaholic-John or Trackday-Robster etc.

Aldente is an intriguing username as it can be interpreted many ways and is certainly more original than many. Rather than saying something specific about the person it makes the reader wonder what they mean which will probably get them to read on. The trick with this type of username is to add some relevance in the context of the actual dating profile but try and maintain the intrigue!

Aa maverick; on the face of it this is a clever username and one would think it would obviously lead the reader to assume the writer was unconventional etc. The problem with this username is similar to the problems associated with using the term ‘gsoh’. It’s a word you would use to describe someone else, not yourself. A true maverick (or someone with a good sense of humour) would demonstrate this personality trait rather than simply use the word.

Nicebutdim is a funny username which raises a smile, however, it’s not necessarily the best way to attract a date. Certainly it demonstrates a sense of humour but sadly at the writers own expense and, whilst self deprecating humour can be appealing, this type of username will immediately put many more potential dates off than it will attract.

Cupidsjaded, Beenhurtbefore etc. are the sorts of usernames most people will steer clear of as it’s obvious these writers still have some history to deal with!

The lesson I hope you will take away from these usernames is to make sure that you consider your username carefully before you commit to it on your dating site. Stick to terms that are upbeat and positive and see if you can use your dating username as one of your key sales messages or you are missing an opportunity. If your predominant characteristic and passion is sport then make your username sporty, if you are serious-minded or career orientated then say so!

Remember most people on dating sites, especially women, are initially looking for nice genuine people who they like the sound of, think they can share some interests with that they don’t think will turn out to be too weird. If you really can’t think of something that shows you in a good light then stick to your using name or your name plus your favourite hobby and you won’t go too far wrong. Even if your username doesn’t leap off the page, it won’t put people off completely.
