Example usernames for online dating
Maybe you can’t tell, but it’s really hard for me to come up with pretend GOOD examples.
In light of that, I asked a bunch of Ok Cupid users who had decent usernames if I could include them here as examples, so you can get a feel for what works well!
: It’s kind of inane (unless you’re a UI designer by trade who actually deals with scroll bars and such).
I confess I had no idea what “tossed salad” meant, but it turns out it meant something kinda kinky that did not convey what this gal intended.Could send the wrong message about your orientation, despite you self-identifying as straight on the site.(As my husband would jokingly yell, “WORDS MEAN THINGS! Think about the double-entendre and maybe check the terms you want to use in Urban Dictionary, but with a grain of salt.) Ski Rainier – A-OK : Totally inoffensive, and devoid of awkward numbers/underscores; conveys a bit about your potential interests which can help spark a conversation and appeal to similarly outdoorsy singles (or singles who find skiers hot, or singles who want someone to help them learn to ski, etc.) : Still a little boring, but you’re getting there!These are all way more eye-catching and curiosity-inducing than your average username.I mostly discourage “descriptive” usernames, like “Fit Swimmer Guy,” because they just sound cheesy, boring, a bit boasty, and kind of outdated.
