18 Usernames For POF And Match.com That Work

It might be small – but your username can pack a big punch. A good one makes her want to know more about you, while a terrible one can instantly turn women off and send them running.

We’ve got 18 examples of usernames that work great for dating sites like POF. We’ll even tell you why they work so you can come up with an irresistible username that’s 100% you.

Exclusive Bonus: Download 8 of our best, proven profiles that you can copy & paste on all your favorite dating sites and apps.

What Makes A Good Username

Your username is your first impression. You want it to be a sneak preview into the rest of your profile. When your message pops up in her inbox, it’s the hook that makes her want to read it.

You also want to get it right the first time. While you can change your Plenty Of Fish username, you'll need to pay for an upgraded membership first.

The trick is choosing a username that highlights an attractive trait. Research has shown that likeability stems from her subconscious initial impression of you, and on most dating sites your username is one of the first things she sees.

Don’t be one of those guys who puts zero thought into his username. If you want to date the most attractive women, you need a username worthy of her attention.

Here are 6 tips for creating usernames for dating sites that work, plus 18 examples:

#1 Start your username with a letter in the first half of the alphabet.

Studies have shown the best usernames for men seeking women begin with letters A-M. They also convey a fun-loving personality and hint at intelligence or culture.

#2 Intrigue her with something unexpected.

Add a twist to a common username, use a play on words, or make a pun using a common phrase.

#3 Ignite her imagination.

The best usernames make her instantly curious. When she wants to know more about you, she’s much more likely to return your message.

#4 Make her hungry for more.

Women love talking about food – science has made it official. So why not whet her appetite with a delicious sounding username?

#5 “Borrow” corporate slogans.

Big businesses have a huge marketing budget. Why not put all their marketing research to personal use with a catchy, memorable, emotion-evoking username?

#6 Make her smile.

If your username puts a smile on her face, you’ve got one up on your competition. 77% of women surveyed by Men’s Health Magazine said a sense of humor was their #1 must have in a man.

First Impressions Can’t Be Unmade

We’ve just given you 18 awesome usernames, but chances are they’re already taken. You could hire a virtual dating assistant to craft a witty, attention-grabbing username for you (with a 100% customized online dating profile to go with it), or you can do it the hard way and come up with your own.

If you go for the second option, here are the top 4 things to avoid when writing a username:

#1: Don’t tack on numbers or characters to make it available.

Using your first name is fine, as long as it’s not too unusual or difficult to pronounce. However, adding random numbers to it just looks lame and uncreative. You want her to think you’re one in a million, not just another Shawn.

#2: Don’t be a negative Nelly.

Negativity has no place in your profile. Not in your username, not in your profile text, not anywhere. Not only is it a major turn off, but why are you taking up precious online real estate with a reason to not like you?

#3: Don’t creep her out.

Sexual innuendos make terrible usernames. Not only do they make her shudder, they send her clicking on to the next guy with a quickness.

#4: Don’t give off a beta vibe.

Women are attracted to alpha males, and have been since the dawn of time. It’s how we evolved as a species. Don’t make her think you’re not one before she’s even read your profile.

Now that you know what goes into an awesome username, it’s time to take yours from “Meh” to “I need to know more about that guy.” Chances are the same could be said for your profile – and that’s just what the professional writers at VIDA do.

If you want to meet the most attractive local women, your profile and messages need to stand out from the competition. Click here to see how VIDA can dramatically improve your dating life!
