At least when it comes to getting noticed on Po F..Because Po F is the biggest free dating site with a gen pop demographic, your clever username won't be appreciated as much here, when compared to Okcupid and Match.The reason we chose a fairly attractive test photo, was to make sure we would get enough unsolicited inbound interest, so we could compare the amounts.(note, we also tried this test with a few less attractive guys.

But I have learned quite a bit over the years about what goes into a great dating name. This username plays to the mans ability and power, without coming across as conceited or arrogant.
