My username combines my first name and a nearby street.

The street name carries connotations (like Soho in NYC), and it reflects the sort of person I am, the type of interests I have, etc.

If I get back into online dating, I’ll probably try to come up with something more clever.

A good profile name will make a good first impression that encourages people to read your profile.

Of course, choosing a good username for dating sites is easier said than done!

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.

Bobbi had a farm with geese in the yard and instead of using The Horse Whisperer, which was way too overdone, we changed one word to great effect. It’s in Volume 2 of my Finding the One Online audio series, and is the cherry on top of your new online dating experience.

To get you started, think about your interests and skills, your location, personality traits, the type of environment you live in, words that others use to describe you, and so on. These are the raw materials for creating a good online dating profile name. Mix and match the words into interesting combinations – potential user names.
