Matthew Valentines is an online dating concierge, and executive director at Personal Dating Assistants.An attraction technologist at heart, he travels the world in search of beautiful women, new ways to help men with their online dating, and the perfect single malt whiskey. In Finding the One Online, I give you 7 hours of audio, a 180 page transcript, a 35 page workbook – and tips on everything from choosing the right site, to writing a compelling online dating profile, to taking the right photos, to flirting effectively via email so that every single person will want to meet you in person. What’s the most memorable username you’ve ever seen on a dating site?I’m quite sure our readers are not going to copy them for their own personal usage. The most memorable (in a good way) were a Blond Moment, Polyglotapus, and Toe_Tap_N.
A great username is a differentiator – a unique brand name – something that completely sets you apart from every other person on a dating site.For women, The Grade notes the names Brianna, Erika, Lexi, Brooke, Vanessa, April, Natalie, Jenna, Molly and Katie were identified as the sexiest.The hottest names for men, on the other hand, were identified as Brett, Tyler, Corey, Andy, Noah, Shane, Jeffrey, Rob, Frank and Jeff. According to Cosmopolitan, The Grade looked at how the names matched up, noting that men named Mike had a tendency to match with women named Brooke, and women named April appear to be into men named Tom.As someone who has been an online dating coach since 2003, I’d venture to guess that I’ve not only seen more usernames than just about anyone on the planet, but I’ve written more of them as well.Why do I think that usernames make a difference, when everyone knows that it’s all about the profile and photo?
