And I've seen usernames that dudes thought were hilarious, but actually terrible ideas (Statutory Ape..takers, ladies? Working from a sample size of under 1000 men, I don't have perfect data. A missed opportunity, and playing to a narrow audience who respond to the 1 dimensional approach.

But I have learned quite a bit over the years about what goes into a great dating name. This username plays to the mans ability and power, without coming across as conceited or arrogant. With surfing being one of the most attractive keywords a guy can include on his dating profile, this username is on the right track.

Each element working in sync, will support the other, together creating your overall Attractive Archetype. While rich language and outrageous words usually word best for Po F & Okcupid usernames, it's not always the right play. The first time I used their site was when they launched, way back in 1995!

Particularly on a more serious or conservative dating site, like Christian Mingle, or On these platforms, I find that less outrageous dating site usernames play better to these types of women. Try a kinder, more relationshipy sounding username. These days, Match has settled into their place as the best platform for folks over 30 who are looking for serious relationships, but younger men can also find success on the site. So it's fairly important to choose a good name for this site, to tie together your overall profile.

But they didn't get enough unsolicited inbound to draw conclusions, unsurprisingly). Also interesting is that when either username was shown alongside his picture on Photofeeler, he scored less than half as attractive when compared to just the photo, with no dating username at all.

Perhaps the nameless photo scored twice as high on Photofeeler, because it was twice as big on the scoring page, when compared to showing it with a username.

Keep in mind Okcupid will only allow you to change your username once per month.

So get it right the first time, or you'll need to start over with a new profile.

The reason we chose a fairly attractive test photo, was to make sure we would get enough unsolicited inbound interest, so we could compare the amounts.
