Have you ever wondered how some of these online guys come up with their screen names? I'm always baffled by the funny spellings and the creative phrases they use, especially while I'm starring at my monitor trying to come up with a eight letter word that will live with me the entire time I'm on the site.
Rest assured, you don't need to come up with an award winning screen name to attract attention. Often times I use a favorite song title or a word from my favorite movie- something that will spark interest or prompt other hopeless romantics to look at my profile. Screen names are like billboard headlines, which invite others to at least check out the product. Online, I've found that the more abstract the screen name, the more guys will message me and ask questions, which ultimately leads to conversation- the best way to asses a match.
Keep in mind, screen names can also be a deterrent. So think about the image you want to present. A name like "lookn4luv" is more likely to attract the romantic types than "easystevie".
