viperess: the saying only dogs like bones is beyond stupid. sure, some men may like a meatier, or curvy gal, but there is a good reason most models are thin and fit. men who are attracted to thinner women arent any less of a man. sigh.

OP: i agree with abelian on this one. most women doctor up their pics on this site so much that when you do meet her in real life, you have no idea what shes really going to look like. with the galmour shots, up in the air cleavage shots, 4 year old pics, and obvious photoshopped pics, its a breath of fresh air to meet a girl who looks better in person.

change your body type on here. im sorry, but youre not average. all my single friends on here will quickly point out a bigger girl who says theyre average or athletic. its a misrepresentation. if a girl will lie about her body type on here, what else is a lie on their profile?

id say to take a pic with you all dressed up and add that to your line up. that way people can see that side of you as well.

one last thing, how important are looks to you? do you really want to put up only great pics just to have some guy to judge you based on those alone? again, i agree with abelian when he said that you should attract people with substance, not looks. that way, its YOU they like, not your cleavage.

best of luck to you!

Mr. "Wrong" it's no WONDER why you have that TAG and I'm sure it's HIGHLY appropriate. I have deduced that MALES such as yourself like NOTHING more than hearing yourselves BLITHER on about INHERENT NONSENSE. You are the POSTER CHILD for the term "You can't fix STUPID". Having no photograph speaks VOLUMES also, as I'm SURE you look like a complete A$$ CLOWN. Do the world a favor and STOP BREATHING. ~Shakes head and LAUGHS~

Only one woman that I ever met from a dating site looked exactly like she did in her photos. It was almost eery the resemblance to her picture. lol

The biggest shocker to me when I meet women are the short ones. You never realize just how short 5' - 5'1 is until you see them in person. Their features look so different in their pictures because they tend to be closeups or from an angle that makes them look taller. So, if a woman puts >5' on her profile, be prepared that she will be tiny if you're at least average height, no matter how she appears in her pics.

The thing about pictures is that it's you, but it's not really you. It's a moment in time taken from a certain perspective, but it never gets your whole three-dimensionality that can only be seen and appreciated (or not) in person.

True!

Forget inner beauty- our first impressions of others are still based on appearance
Bad news for ugly ducklings and the less fashion savvy- it seems appearance is as important to us as they ever were, according to an online survey.

Three fifths of people form their opinion of someone within just five seconds of meeting them and more than a third said appearance was everything when forming first impression.

A quarter of (rather judgmental) respondents admitted that they always evaluate someone by their appearance alone.
