Absolutely! I refuse to respond to any guy whose username ends in 4u or taco.

What is the taco thing about? I noticed quite a few tacos in usernames but have no idea why they would be there.

Well, I was always turned off by the taco ending because I know it is a slang term for pussy. I figured if a guy has "taco" on the end of his name, it's just as bad as adding "69" to their name, as a juvenile way of saying, "Oh pick me, I'm looking for pussy."

But when I posted about this on another thread here (or maybe it's this one, from way back, I dunno, LOL) I was told by another member that if you try to ask for a username and it's taken, OKC gives you choices (like when you try to get an email address), and some of the ones they offer will end in "taco" and "4u". Still, any guy who picks taco seems creepy in my eyes. And if they pick 4u that is just unimaginative and also a bit creepy, like they're stalkers just waiting "4 u." At least, that's the association in my mind.

Now, "sushi" might be acceptable!

Helo, so since you've been defending the copy/paste first time greeting messages, are you guilty of same?

I know it's SO much trouble to look for a woman with a high match percentage, and then take 5 minutes to read her profile and another 5 mins to compose a message that references 2 items in her profile and how you share those interests or something, but goodness. If you want to get into someone's panties, or actually have a relationship lasting a few months (regular sex!), please, consider taking the time.

Thanks, Mags

My boyfriend, Ginger, has shown me his joke female profile, no picture, short profile... He gets messages every week, even from guys telling "her" she's cute, when there is no picture!

Haha, I am telling him about this thread and Helo's resistance to "what women want," and he said,

"Can't put out effort at first or she will expect you to put out effort later, or even in bed."

Aha! LOL

Thanks. It must be a regional term, but spreading since it's turning up on Australian profiles.
