|What kind of pictures do guys like to see on profiles? Just curious. I am going to take some new pics and post them on my profile and would love any help. A couple of my interests that I was wanting to incorporate are football and muscle cars. Any other suggestions would be greatly appreciated!|

|Just a couple random photos, i dont think the guys are as picky as the women =) You have some decent photos already. A good body shot, a couple with some nice smiles.. And maybe some of you out doing something fun. Dont need cars and football but it doesnt hurt haha. The one fella is going to post and tell you to look at his history because he has a post on photos. Its a good point of reference =) |
p.s. Colorado posters > anybody else! >=)

|There is something tasteful, classy and alluring about skimpy bikini shots on a trampoline??? Just saying... (LOL)|

|Your pictures look good.|
Just add one more of you in a lil black dress
and you will have covered all the bases.
If you really want a lot of mail...
a bikini shot.

|dont do the bikini shot unless you want the wrong focus haha.|

|My preference is a nice face photo or two, at least one head-to-toe shot and maybe a couple of you out doing things you enjoy but if your friends are in the picture to, be sure to write in the caption which one is you. (it's so annoying when women have girlfriends that look similar to them in a photo and don't point out which one is them)|
Depending on what car you put in your profile, cars guys may be more interested in it than you, lol.

|You're missing a photo with a full smile in your current profile.|
Typically you want to have a full body shot in your portfolio. I've seen some photos that looked great from the waist up, but below that everything changed. Significantly.
There can be more to a picture than looking good. I use to have a photo of a puppy licking my cheek that attracted emails. I'm not one to contact women, but when something catches my eye I will. Like a place or activity I can identify with. Remember, you are one of thousands in a catelogue that people are leafing through. The first thing that catches their attention is the picture. If the picture grabs their attention then they are more likely to read your profile. Then maybe they will contact you.
It's great that you are asking. I always suggest being very thoughtful with the pictures as they are the most important part of your profile.

|Usually the same thing most women like to see: A good smile. A good body shot. A public adventure.|
Those boil down to my personal 'holy-trinity' of inquisition. Is she kind? Is she attractive? Does she leave the house?

|The football and muscle car photos on women's profiles have been done to death, just put in Interests or your profile that you are into them. I agree with the others about a full body photo, when I see only a torso or face I get suspicious. Oh yeah the bikini shot doesn't hurt. :)|

|Get some full body shots of yourself showing that you really have a thinner body type, and make sure that at least one or two pictures of your face are clear and close up........football and muscle cars will not change how you look or you body type unless you want to have someone date your car while going to a football game!!|

|OP: Well, I'll tell you. I don't want to see a ___load of mammary flesh. Unless you've had a breast whacked off from cancer, I presume you've got them (i.e., breasts), and I'm good to go. I don't need shot after shot after shot after OH-MY-GOD-IS-THAT-ALL-SHE-BRINGS-TO-THE-TABLE SHOT of cleavage. ENOUGH ALREADY!!! So... full length. I want recent (dated in the photo is preferred) photos of you, front and back, sideways, et cetera. If your fourth point of contact is the size of the Grand Canyon, I WANT TO KNOW. Face... I want to see if you know what eyebrow tweezers are, if you actually have TWO eyebrows instead of ONE, if you know how to get made up, et cetera. I like seeing a "dirty" shot -- and I truly mean "dirt" dirty. I want to see you in jeans, an old sweatshirt, doing something that convinces me you're not some prissy-__ _____ who is going to squeal like a stuck pig if you ruin your manicure. I'd like to see a smile. Not a DRUNKEN smile, like you don't even remember when the picture was taken, just a normal smile. Also... reasonably close to the camera lense, NOT A PICTURE TAKEN FROM FIVE COUNTIES AWAY. Lighting. It exists. Unless you're a vampire, take advantage of it.|
Knock off the gol'-flippin' bathroom shots and car shots. Just like with the breasts, I'll take it for granted you have a bathroom and a car, so I don't need to see either. Do you have a pet? Show me a picture of you WITH the pet (I look at those pretty closely... it's a "she's got a good heart" thing I'm looking for in those cases). Do you have kids? I know, I know... rapists and perverts, bla bla bla... but personally, I'd like to see you with your family to get an idea of whether or not you LIKE your family... or if they like YOU.
What I don't need, and what I'm frankly sick of, are bikini shots, "I'm trying to look sexy" shots that really suck, and football-jersey shots.
My personal preference, though not popular (not that I care anyway), is if you hunt, post a picture -- because if you're with me and you don't hunt, you're not going to be (with me).
You asked. There you go.

|I don't really care about someone's truck, car, boat, dog, etc. I didn't come here for their ride.|

|Pics should be an accurate representation.|
If you almost never dress fancy, only one photo out of the eight should be in the fancy clothes.
Soneone who goes out to bars / clubs a lot can have at least half the pics in those locales.
If at least half the pics are travel / vacation, the user is likely to travel a lot (back button for me).
A homebody can have most pics inside at home.
For me to believe a claim a user has outdoor interests, there should be outdoor pics, in your case a rafting photo.
I prefer everyday shots over glamour shots.
Those with pets should have photos with the pets (my favorite photos).
It is best to look better in real life so if you meet someone in person, they can have a positive reaction to the real life person.
One photo of you at a car show should be good, in front of a vehicle you find interesting. One photo in front of your bike.

|Your main photo is very good. I'd say keep it and the last one and ditch the others and take several photos until you know that 6 more are very good. Keep them current by adding and deleting every 2-3 months IMO.|

|Mud wrestling. Pictures with BEER. Preferably with other women in a cold mountain setting wearing bikinis with BEER. Maybe on a beach with some BEER. Did I mention Bikinis and BEER and possibly playing football in bikinis with BEER! lol|
Seriously though, your pics are fine but really, throw some BEER in there

|Just to clarify I do not own a pet.|

|This may be wrong of course depending on what you're looking for, because some girls unfortunately conform themselves to what they think a guy likes, to increase the amount of attention they get, and write according to what will get them the most responses instead of writing to get the responses they're looking for...but it's a mistake to take pictures according to how you think guys want you to take them. Just like the written part of the profile, you should show who you are. Take what pictures you want. Write what you want to write. If you don't show yourself, who you are, then it's frustrating as heck and self defeating for you when we don't know who you are.|

|A recent full body picture should be mandatory.|

"...a breast whacked off from cancer"
Presumably you're not trying to be funny? Who the f*ck talks like that!?
What a complete moron.
