I had never heard a specific taco reference before this thread, but it doesn't take much imagination to put two and two together... Tacos have a certain shape... I don't know what the female version of phallic is, but...yeah... And you put meat in tacos...

"Shame you live in [snip]. We'd be intellectually, philosophically and emotionally compatible... And then there is the sex, of course."

Yeah, or not.

Curiosity always gets the better of me.

One of his answers is that yes, he would mind if his partner maintained an active profile on OKC. Sorry, we're compatible...how?

Incidentally, it's "yonic," from the Indian yoni symbol.

That's what anthropologists call that taco shape, anyway...

I've pretty much given up on OKC for now. It was getting weird really fast. The two people who actually wrote more than a one sentance message like "hey ur cute hmu" turned out to be a bit odd. I don't know how to put my finger on it, but it was just very off-putting.

It kills me too, because I am pretty clear in my profile that I won't respond to one line messages. Yet, I get 6 or more a day. Ugh.

Oh well. I've been having one of those "feeling waaaay too busy right now to get out there much" moments. I keep trying, but I think I just kind of suck at online dating.

Maybe that's why they do it. Lots of people will automatically do that which they are told not to do, just to be contrary or rebellious, and to poke at someone. Take that sentence out and see what happens.

Yeah...I had it out for a long time. Still got those very short messages. So I guess it doesn't really matter if it is there or not! Oh well.... I have way way way too much going on over this coming month to even check my messages, let alone do much about them.

The really really short messages are becoming more and more common as people are used to a text & app-based world. Instead of using these sites as a personal ad that you read thoroughly then type out a well-thought response, folks these days (particularly males under 35) will just use it as an instant-message thing.

Keep getting crap like "hey ur hawt lol"
Well, thanks. "bored here, wassup"
"wanna hang out?".

I'm like dude, this is okcupid not grindr.

I'd like to see OkCupid institute a minimum word count for sending a message. Or at least have it be a requirement you can enable in your own profile; someone cant send an initiating message unless its over a certain word count.
