Ultimately, your dating username is just another part of your overall dating persona. And no woman is going to hold you to it during a meet up offline.
As a Personal Dating Assistant, my team & I have helped hundreds of guys come up with the best dating user names. I've worked with guys who had some of the funniest usernames (Kosher Casanova).
I've managed profiles with cool usernames (Steve Mc Dream). Not to mention it uses alliteration as a stylistic device, containing repeated sound of the first letter across both words.
