Usernames & Internet Dating...(Not-Doggin-Ya...Cave-Dweller...)
Not Doggin Ya
How do we all come up with our pseudo-names..... You know, the log in or user name that we create, in order to be recognized in a mysterious way.
We get online, and we see who is logged on, and we think, “Oh, look! HeManWonderSlayer-is on chat right now.”
Some people use a combination of initials which is not real creative. But, ok, whatever floats your boat? Some use their name with a hyphen or underscore, so that they can achieve name recognition. Some have funny names; while others try to express how cool they are through their user names.
Some will use a combination of words to express their emotions. But this scenario can get someone in real trouble. Let me explain. Now who is going to date a guy named SeeMyBuns or LongOne. Another few that made me scratch my head were TheKingofBitches, or NutJob or NailnBail. There’s a couple of winners.
There's a specific area in your profile for you to talk about your hobbies, and it's not your username. IDigSexnSoftball. Wouldn't this same sentiment—"I enjoy playing softball at the park, and lots of sex life is important to me"—sound less caveman-ish in your profile than your username?

Choose Your Username Wisely
Choose a username that attracts a WOMAN. Men often choose a username that’s a turn-off to women. For example, if you are into chewing tobacco and planting yourself in front of the TV for hours at a time, that’s great. But don’t include it in your username.
You can and should be a nice, funny guy when online dating. Just don't be NiceGuyBrad34 or ComicJohn27. Show, don't tell, as they say in Vegas.
Tip: if your bro's love it, it won’t attract a woman. Choose a fun and woman-friendly username that describes what a woman would love about you.
I won’t date anyone, or even respond to a message from anyone named, MyFeetStink, HearMeFart, or DrillFork. Nobody with the name of InTheSack, or BeaverBuster will get into my friends list. I’d have to think twice about OneNightStand or ImTheMan or ImUrDaddy. Anyways, I think you may get the idea...
On the other hand I would actually click on and read someone’s personal data with the name, PuppyLove or Kissme. My favorite is NotDogginYa. However, I would have to think twice about guys named KittyLover, or CaveDweller and wonder what their true intentions are.
So, in conclusion
I am hoping that the gentlemen who read this may gain some insight as to how a woman thinks and more importantly, what she thinks when she first sees your profile name on an internet dating site...
