Dating sites don’t typically have a search bar where you can search for a person by their username or name.
However, doing a dating site username search can be done in various ways on the internet.
Unfortunately, this isn’t as easy as the ‘experts’ of the matter portray it.
The truth is, there are only two ways to do a username search on dating sites, and that is not directly through dating sites or apps!
If you’re looking for a realistic guide, then here are the only two effective ways to do a username search on dating sites:
1. Do a free username search on dating sites by using Google and its searching options.
If you’re looking for a free method yet an effective one when it comes to searching dating sites by username, this is the one!
Searching dating profiles by username can be effective if you use the right tools to operate the search, hence getting accurate results.
Using Google to search things, including usernames on dating apps and sites, is free.
Depending on the dating app or site and their policy regarding the user’s information being displayed on search engines, Google can be an excellent tool!
Considering that Google is one of the most used search engines on the internet, you’re likely to find information. The good part? It’s entirely free!
Some dating sites allow their users to choose whether their information may be public on search engines or not, but some others have strict policies on the matter.
However, this is the only free method, hence it’s worth giving this a try before you proceed to use tools that charge you money for such services.
- Go to google.com, and search “site:nameofdatingsite.com name of the person you’re looking for”
To make this clearer, here’s an example, “site:tinder.com jessie”
This method can work despite you knowing the username of the person. Don’t forget to look at the Google Images results as well! Give it a try!
- Write the name of the site and add the username of the person you’re looking for. For example, “tinder.com/@jessie1”
You can try this method to search other sites other than Tinder, however, so far, this is known to work for Tinder only.
If you find yourself helpless using Google to search dating profiles by username, then you can rely on other tools online!
2. Use search tools online.
There’s an immensely large number of tools and services on the internet that claim to provide you with search results from any dating site with any information.
Now, some of those sites work, and some of them clearly are a scam.
Searching through these services can give you the results you’re looking for, however, you have to be cautious and do a little research on them.
Before deciding to spend a particular amount of money on a specific search service, make sure that the service is legit and has good reviews online.
Some of those services are fast, simple, and don’t require much information to operate the search. All it takes is a username, name, or email!
* Quick note: with this service—Socialcatfish—you can use email, phone number, name and/or last name, email address, or all at once.
On the other hand, other services are specially designed to search for people on a specific dating site or app. An example of that is Cheaterbuster.
Other tools online tend to be more generalized regarding these searches. They not only find dating profiles, but they also find other information too!
Some of those tools that tend to roam around the internet include (but are not limited to):
Some of these sites also provide services to do a background check on the person you’ve met on dating sites.
Take a look at which one is affordable and trustworthy before you spend your money and time on any of them.
If you’re trying to find someone on dating sites and you’re willing to pay for the services, then do your research well before you put your money in!
Things you need to look out for while using tools online to search for usernames on dating sites!
Again, there’s an immensely large number of services and tools on the internet that claim to offer you accurate and fast results for a particular price.
However, you mustn't blindly trust everything you read on the internet.
You’ve got to do a little research on these sites, take a look at the reviews, but also see what you can find with their free trials first.
For example, a largely mentioned site was “usersearch.org”. And before I went to search for anyone, I thought I’d search for a friend first!
I know her well, and I’m very well aware she’s not using any dating apps.
Now, I look her name and last name up on the search bar. And here goes this link claiming to be an ‘onlyfans’ link with her name and last name.
I click on it, and it was her Twitter profile except the link was onlyfans.com.
That being said and seen, I wouldn’t pay this site for its services.
The only time I’d use a service from this site would be if it’s free.
- If given the chance, test a service with a free trial and see if the results are accurate, to have an idea of whether spending money on it is worth it.
- Do a little research on the service;
- Take a look at the reviews of the services outside their site;
- If you can, make a Reddit post about it. It’s a great way to get perspectives on the service you’re trying to pay for.

That being said, consider the time, effort, and money you’re going to spend on a service before you use it.
Go for the free methods first. Use Google. Use the free trials. Then, when convinced and proven it’s a good idea, use the particular service(s).
