What motivates some of you men to take the shirtless picture in front of the bathroom mirror with you cell phone?

Perhaps I take myself a little to seriously for some, but I have to say...it's a little creepy!

Probably the same reason women take the same pic of their chests or butts and post them on profiles........ The only offering they have, cell version..........

Same reason why its so popular among women to do the same thing, but in underwear or a low cut blouse with provacative poses.

In my case it's because my porn-producer buddy forgot to recharge the batt'ry pack in his camcorder: konica ergo sum.

Yes they do- I have two!!! They are cute, they are fun and for some
reason I look really really cute after I pee.

Look- people just take a picture- some of us
live in log cabins in the woods with no electricity and no indoor plumbing-
glamour shots are out of the question.

Really- its just a picture. At least they have one. There are a variety of
pics here- some of us dont have a nice rack or a great six pack. We are
all just here to meet that special someone- when we start becoming
critical over every little thing- we lose- we lose out on meeting the
guy with the picture taken in his bathroom mirror.

Hopefully you stopped to wash your hands in between peeing and pics.

"You think, therefore you're a Konica camera??"

They're hoping you'll be so mesmerized by their shirtless pics that you might not notice their lack of intelligence, maybe??

I think people do it, just so they can see how many people will start a forum thread asking why they do it.

Hi sunrae

Well at least you can tell how old the picture is by the size of the cellphone!

1. Because the can

2. Because they don't own a camera

3. ^^^see #2 and they don't have or won't ask anyone to take a pic of them.

I'm just happy that most likely it's a recent picture as they didn't have cell pic phones back in day.

And

I'm just happy that there's a pic at all.

I'm going to set up the camera/timer & take a picture of JUST the mirror.

Then all the Vampire chicks will think I'm HOT!

A similar question was posed on "Ask a Girl" a few days ago.

Thread title: "What is the term for Cell-Phone Glamour Shots?"

No, it's not creepy. Creepy is an overused word women use to describe things guys do that they don't find attractive. Creepy would be having a picture of you on their profile.

"He hit on me, he's creepy" Without creepy evidence does not make a creepy situation.

You try taking a body shot of yourself with a camera. And we aren't chicks who want to take constant photos of ourselves, so we lack the experience. You never see two guys with their heads pressed together with a cheesy grin, BFF style.

They just want you to look, and perhaps appreciate what you see. That's all. How is that creepy?

For that matter why do women post provocative seductive pictures and think to be viewed as long term? You know what I mean..... the glam posing, cleavage just short of p*rn, legs crossed on the bed in a naughty nighty, panty and bra pics.....

Are you sure it's not that you just look more relaxed?

I just assume they lack any friends to take them for them.

Neh... they look more relaxed after # 2.

I assume they cannot figure out how to work the timer function on regular camera.
