Over the past week I've talked in my blog and others about coming up with a universal code that we can all use in the real world to let others know that we're "in". Here are a couple that I came up with. Let me know what you think and feel free to post your own suggestions. We'll keep this up 'till we get one that the majority likes.

TUNA SUB- (bus a nut spelled backwards). I saw that one on someone's profile. Just not sure how you'd incorporate it into a sentence when you're walking up to someone. That and you'll look really weird if they're not "in". Threw this one in to break the ice.

"Do you shop online?" - Alluding to the fact that we're all searching for something/someone on here. Again, a little weird when you first walk up to someone, but promising.

"Have I seen you at the Y/Do you go to the Y?" - One of my better ones. Has the safeness if you're with your mother but the inuendo of something a little more risque. The only problem is- what if you really do go to the Y?

"Do you like to eat out?" - Obvious sexual reference. Maybe too obvious. But it does get the point across. Could be followed by a wink for clarification.

"Do you go to my gym?" - I don't know how many of you actually go to a gym on a regular basis, but this could work too. At least it gets you "in" and opens up the possibility for a follow-up question (I go to the Y). Or throw in the old wink. It could work.

"Ever been to Vegas?" - Sin city has to be a clue that you're here, right? Just make sure you're answering the right question. You could never have been on this site and say "yes" opening yourself up to some person you've never met telling you how much he loves your blogs. This one needs a special answer to go with it.

There's also the use of a key word or phrase. I was thinking using the word "swing" or something like it. Incorporate it into a sentence playfully and discreetely. Remember, that could be our significant other standing next to us and they may not be in the know.

So there's a quick little rundown of my suggestions. Nothing great by any means but hey- it's a start. Besides, this isn't just up to me you know. I want to hear what you all have to say about this. We'll keep it running until we get a good one and then try and make it the industry standard.
