Funny dating usernames

02 May

Fourteen percent of users surveyed by Herring included gender identifiers in their avatars.Among men, "son," "mrman," and "hulk" were used; among women, "girl," "queen," "gal," "goddess," and "woman" were popular.“There’s too much variety in the names to really get a sense of whether one particular one affects incoming messages,” he told me in an email.“There are certainly trends -- people append the word 'taco' a lot, but that’s because we suggest it, kind of as a joke.

Only five percent of usernames surveyed included geographic information, and zero percent included pop culture references such as band names.My first, chosen for a dial-up Compu Serve account, was Pool Princess6030, a blatant ripoff of my BFF's moniker, sport2040.But I’ve since become a more deliberate person (read: adult human) and tend to think my usernames align with my personality.They were, to me, the pseudonym equivalent of a cheesy pickup line.Much more appealing were earnest self-depictions or vague, consciously nonsensical noun mish-mashes.
