The Importance of a Good User Name

CoupleOnline dating user names are really important and you want them to say something about you, but in a good way. Many times online daters choose a user name that is not in their best interest. This could result in a lack of interest in your profile. There are some suggestions, however, to help you choose a good user name and some examples of what’s hot and what’s not.

First of all, your user name should reflect you in some way, but it should also be easy to remember and original. When people see your user name they will either become interested or turned off, so be creative. Choose something that is memorable, honest, short and fun and you will have a great user name!

The easiest way to choose a user name is to sit down with a pen and paper and brainstorm. Consider who you are, the types of user names you like, and then put it all together and personalize it. Doing this is the best way for you to come up with an original and catchy user name.

Examples of User Names
Some great examples of user names include names like RocknRollRoxanne or RusticRandy. You may prefer a user name like SanFranMan or BabyBlueEyes, both of which are acceptable and incorporate the recommendations of short, easy to remember, and original. The types of user names you will want to avoid at all costs include LonelyLiz, HopelessHarry, LookingforLove, and things of this nature.
It is obvious you are trying to find a date because you are on an online dating website. So, you don’t have to spell out your loneliness in your user name. Also, don’t sound too confidant either with usernames like HotLover or DrLove.

Get a Second Opinion
If you have come up with a couple user names you like but you are not sure which one will be the best for you then get a second opinion. Ask a close friend to evaluate the usernames you came up with and recommend the best one for you. Your friend will be able to tell you if the username seems desperate, sad, over-confidant, or lonely. More than likely a second opinion will be all it takes to help you decide on the best user name for an online dating site.
With this information you are now ready to begin the process of choosing a user name. Relax and just start brainstorming. Write everything down on a piece of paper and then see what you come up with. You may find that you have a couple of user names you don’t particularly like but by combining a couple you may find the right username!
