If you don’t want to be greeted by an onslaught of messages from creepy guys asking about your butt, you might want to heed the advice of xoJane scribe Rachel Heller and not choose the online dating username “Tossed Salad.”

Ms. Heller, as it turns out, didn’t know that “tossed salad” could be used as a filthy euphemism (she was also a proud member of the PEN15 club in middle school), so she used it as her username on JDate. “It was conservative, it was cute, and it advertised my penchant for health-conscious eating (never a bad thing!)” she reasoned.

But Ms. Heller soon realized her mistake when the weird butt-themed messages began flowing into her inbox.

“I had told them all my butt was open for business,” she laments.

This is a reminder to read up on your Urban Dictionary slang before registering your next online dating profile.
