Internet dating screen name

Single Malt Brisket – Better : Grabs interest with a slight play on words; clearly indicates that you like a) whiskey and b) meat.Anyone who isn’t comfortable with a partner who consumes those substances is likely to skip you, which is actually in your best interests if this username fits your vibe.

These are all way more eye-catching and curiosity-inducing than your average username.

I mostly discourage “descriptive” usernames, like “Fit Swimmer Guy,” because they just sound cheesy, boring, a bit boasty, and kind of outdated.

Trying too hard to perfectly sum yourself up is a common pitfall. Generally you should avoid anything with numbers, or super descriptive words (Ski Girl Seattle is very boring, even if it’s easy to come up with—and it only conveys information we’d be able to find in other areas of her profile).

It’s also best not to just recycle whatever old school internet handle has been your Twitter username and forum login info for years—stuff we created c.

That would make them relevant and witty, and likely to stand out to similarly math-minded gals.

Pinot Grizzly – Maybe : Sounds playful with subtle word play; indicates that this user likes wine and has that Northwest-scruffy vibe (you know, like a bit too much stuff from Filson and a few days’ of stubble). : Could possibly signify “bear,” which is a slang term in the gay community for guys who are a bit hairier/less effeminate.(Again, this is an “only if the shoe fits” example.) : Potentially makes you sound drinky.But if you live a lifestyle in which you do enjoy whiskey fairly regularly, then that shouldn’t be a problem; the rest of your profile is going to be so well-written and whip-smart that you won’t sound sloppy or alcoholic. (Don’t forget that I can help with that, haha.) Above you have a few examples that I made up to illustrate a point.There’s nothing bad here, but it doesn’t elicit a huge reaction other than “oh, I guess that guy likes to ski/be outdoorsy.” We can do even better than this, but it’s certainly not bad. Phantom Scrollbooth – Pretty good : It’s a bit geeky and witty; relates you to beloved children’s book that heavily features math, and makes a subtle joke that shows levity and a sense of humor. Obviously, if you don’t get the pun because you’re not familiar with this book, or you didn’t particularly like the book much, then it wouldn’t work so well.But if the shoe fits, then this is a fun playful username that sets you apart.It’s the first thing potential dates see, and as this humorous article indicates, it makes a big impression (sometimes unintentionally).
