Sexy Usernames For Guys [Boost Your Match Rate!]

Choosing your POF username is the first step in the sign up process - and it’s the beginning of the end for a lot of guys.

Your username is front & center in her search results, her inbox, and on your profile. That’s three chances to either impress her or make her cringe:

Guys with sexy usernames get replies to their messages… and guys with names like “HardenThicke84” are probably spending yet another Friday night alone.

VIDA's team of dating experts has written hundreds of thousands of online dating profiles for guys, so we know what attracts the best matches. How? Because we also handle all our clients back and forth messaging too - and setting up all the dates!

In this short article, not only will you get 16 examples of sexy usernames for POF, you’ll also learn why they appeal to women - so you can come up with a sexy username that’s 100% you.

The Science Of Sexy Usernames

When it comes to attracting women, some personality traits are universally irresistible thanks to biology. You’ve no doubt heard of natural selection - AKA Darwin’s survival of the fittest theory.

In a nutshell, women are biologically predisposed to want certain traits in a mate, and that’s just what good online dating usernames capitalize on. Here are some examples:

According to researchers, “likeability springs from subconscious initial impressions.” Your username is unmissable on POF, so it needs to make a good first impression. That’s why staying far, far away from words with negative connotations is crucial.

Negative words and ideas are associated with inferiority, so they instantly tarnish your image. Take this real-world example:

She’s not going to wonder why this guy is lonely, and what she can do to fix it. She’s going to take a hard pass and move on to someone people actually want to spend time with.

Instantly Intrigue Her

Will having a sexy username guarantee you dates on POF? No, probably not. But it will entice her to click on your profile or respond to your message, and that’s what leads to dates.

A username like one of these practically guarantees she’ll want to learn more about you:

See the difference?

They all committed some cardinal username sins, namely:

  • Telling her what you don’t want. She doesn’t know you, so she doesn’t care.
  • Radiating desperation. Your username should make her want to pursue you, not declare your undying devotion to her.
  • Implying you need her to be happy. She doesn’t want to fill a void in your life, she wants to be with someone who’s already got a great life going.
  • Misspelling words, and other grammar errors. Small details matter. If you can’t even spell “integrity”, what are the chances you have it?
  • Sounding crazy. Most women have their fair share of bad online datings stories, so don’t hand her a reason to assume you’d be one of them.

Be The Total Package

On a site where you can sort your matches by whether or not they own a car, having a solid career is an attractive prospect to most women. Why not allude to yours in your username? For instance:

Here is a 4-step process you can use to generate a list of good usernames for dating sites that are based on your job:

1. Jot down a few words associated with your career. Don’t think too hard, just let the ideas flow. If you work in IT, your list might look something like this:

career words

2. Write words associated with your hobbies, like this:


3. Finally, look over those two lists and write down any associated words that pop into your head. When you’re making your own lists, the more words you jot down, the more you’ll have to work with. You can also use resources like to find words that sound interesting and intriguing:

word association

4. Start pairing words to make intriguing combinations, like “DataWrangler” or “TechViking.” Boom - sexy username that’s 100% you.
