The third step is to start pairing these words together to create some really fun, interesting and descriptive puns that really describe what’s really important to you and what you’re all about.
Examples of these are: • Negative • Pushy • Impatient • Rude • Loud • Bored • Lonely • Desperate Examples of poor username combinations are: • Single4Ever – Indicates the person has no hope. • Gr8t In Bed – Must be compensating for something. Examples of fun usernames are: • Sensible Shopper – Here’s a woman who can balance a check book.
• Adventurous Asian – Someone who can keep me on my toes and we share similar culture.

As someone who has been an online dating coach since 2003, I’d venture to guess that I’ve not only seen more usernames than just about anyone on the planet, but I’ve written more of them as well.
Why do I think that usernames make a difference, when everyone knows that it’s all about the profile and photo?
Because when you’re dating online, which is an extremely competitive medium, you need every advantage you can get.
A great username is a differentiator – a unique brand name – something that completely sets you apart from every other person on a dating site.
Creating your online dating username is not something you should do hastily.
Your username is essentially your online personal brand!
There’s nothing unique, memorable or distinguishing. One of my favorite usernames was The Goose Whisperer, written for a client named Bobbi in 2005. So if you’re wondering how to come up with a clever name that gets attention, and attracts a like-minded person with a great sense of humor, I have an exercise that can help you come up with usernames just like the ones I mention above.
