I'm really surprised by so many responses saying they aren't interested in, or don't want to see older pics in profiles. Of course people should have recent pictures of themselves first and foremost, but there's nothing wrong with having older pictures also if they say something about you and how you got where you are today. Older pics can be great conversation pieces! You can say all day long, until you're blue in the face, "I'm not the same person I was 30 years ago". That's true for all of us, but we also wouldn't be who we are today without learning from all our life experiences. I have some older pics in my profile. Not because I'm trying to live in the past, but because they tell a part of my life story that led to where I am now. I'd much rather see a wide variety of pictures in someone's profile showing them doing things that reveal who they are as a person. Seeing 10 shots of the same person in the same bathroom, through the same mirror, from 10 different angles tells me nothing personal about the individual. Just saying.
