Online Dating Names

Hottie3000. SnuffyBoy22. Online dating is no different than real dating—you wouldn’t walk up to someone and introduce yourself as KeiraLovr, so don’t do it in cyberspace.

You can still be original and flirtatious. In fact, research has shown that a little flirtation goes a long way with screen names—more people gravitate toward people who have handles like “fun2bwith” or “I’msweet.” Physical descriptors are also helpful.

One category that doesn’t do well is names that imply wealth, such as “lovemyporsche,” likely because they’re seen as superficial and in some cases could be deceitful.

The best thing you can be when looking for a relationship online is honest about who you are and what you’re seeking. Let your screen name be a reflection of the real you and the things you truly enjoy! [Times Online]
