I have often been asked by readers and dating profile clients what makes for a really good online dating name.

Well, think about it—especially you folks who complain that your fellow singles “only look at the pictures anyway.” This is your chance to be clever, cool, fun, witty, and alluring.

That is, If you don’t totally mess it up by coming up with something stupid, self-obsessed, or downright uninteresting.

Successful online dating requires a lot of proactivity, and your profile is perhaps the best example of that.

It can be all too easy to write up a brief profile, upload a couple of photographs, and then hope that your perfect match will land in your inbox. But in order to give yourself the best chance of finding a meaningful relationship, you will probably have to work a little harder than that.

I have looked at literally thousands of profiles in my time, and so I feel I am well placed to suggest what profiles I think “work” — from a man’s perspective.

What You Should Know About Picking a Good Username

Online Dating: Your Username

While some online dating sites assign you a username automatically, the big boys like Match.com and eHarmony leave it up to you – which means you’ve got a bit of thinking to do.
