One of the most easy ways to create a screen name with the least amount of effort is to let your computer do it for you.
A great username is a differentiator – a unique brand name – something that completely sets you apart from every other person on a dating site.
And when your ideal partner is scrolling through hundreds of names – Sally102, Jen NYC1, Lawyer Gal – a great username can be the very reason that someone contacts you. And you become convinced that usernames don’t matter. In my opinion, a username should be a pun or a play on words. Wine Not – for the wine aficionado Lady Go Go – for the world traveler Bach To Bach – for the classical music enthusiast Tender Legal – for the soft-hearted lawyer See the common thread?

Because when you’re dating online, which is an extremely competitive medium, you need every advantage you can get.
