This is one that intrigues me and gave me reason for deliberating about the other day :p

Can you really tell what a person is like by their profile picutre(s) or is it a case that you do not know someone (whether they have pictures or not) until you meet.

I will wait for some answers before revealing my answer to something which was said the other day, lol - just curios really tbh, lol

Yes thats what I thought Cinders - but the answer which should obviously be no - was the complete opposite, lol

Lets see who else thinks yes and no, lol

I think sometimes you can, sometimes not....

I prefer to see a few "normal" photo's if their main image is questionable.

Oh Banterbunny - thank you - you are along the right lines, lol

Basically, I had a guy who said I was too full-on for him and asked how he came to that conclusion from my pictures, as in fact, im quite a shy person, deep down - I just like to enjoy life as its very precious and too short - learnt from experiences etc - so wondered how he could justify this - he said i would scare him, lol - didnt realise my pictures were so scary

He also told me it was my fault for having the pictures I do - I actually do not agree with him and will not change myself for no-one - did this in the past and it made me into a very unconfident person - which also people find hard to believe.

Everyone is different, I know, but I would never judge someone on their pictures, in this capacity, before meeting them

Hey

Thanks for all your comments - has been intriguing reading them all

I found the comment that was made to me, quite off the cuff, etc, strange how he could think this by just some pictures - when in fact he couldnt be further from the truth etc- but everyone is different and each to their own etc, but as long as I know what kind of person I am etc, thats good - righ? lol

So thank you for your comments once again and maybe I will be posting a bit more from now on :)
