I like to see that undefinable look in a photo and for me it's generally down to the eyes, smile and face shape makes me click to see more.

Things I don't like to see are sunsets, homemade cards, Harleys, cabriolets, lots of group photos or "active" photos, dogs unless you're on a walk, overhead photos designed to make your eyes look bigger and to hide the bags and chins and obviously photoshopped studio shots, and anything with a scowl involved.

The worst example of a set of photos I've seen here were of a lady whose scanned and faded pictures were obviously circa 1978. Yes really.

But then what do I know? I look half asleep in mine.... ;o)

I HATE

Group shots of three or four blokes with no indication of which one is the man whose profile is below!

Photos in which he is drinking a pint. Just makes me think - heavy drinker - ugh!

Football shirt or otherwise dressed like a toddler or "lad".

Anyone with a sunburned face looking pissed and chuckling with his mates in a bar in Torremolinos

Anyone who looks like he reads The Sun.

Beer gut (now known as wheat-gut).

Holding up a fish.

Facial hair.


I LIKE

A man in a suit. Or jeans/jacket.

A big smile.

A dimple.

Good, clear, close up of face = nothing to hide.

Intelligent look in the face/eyes.

Backdrop of Grand Canyon, Paris etc

picture of a view?????


This is something I don't get either. What is the profile owner trying to convey? It's bad enough seeing a photo taken in foreign climes where the person is thirty feet into the distance, but when they're not even in it at all??

I am a sucker for eyes and a " kind and pleasant " face. Just a hint of the figure I like is enough. I don't want to be wondering if she has even saucier pics on adult friend finder or slutvibes unless there is a chance of us just having a bit of fun :P

The BIGGEST thing I look for is if they are smiling.

To me, a person that is smiling usually means their a happy person :)

^^^ Are you sure? Sometimes the only reason a women smiles is when she is either seeking her own way or has just got it!

Maybe you should be forced to use a passport photo, where I believe you are not allowed to smile!


My passport photo makes me think I look as though I belonged in the Baader Meinhof gang, so I think I'll pass up on that opportunity if it ever arises. ;o)

I'd have to think about my answer, but a friend said my main picture looks like I am looking at porn while thinking evil things (what? World domination?!) so maybe I should change it soon!!!

And for the LOVE of...do NOT have a WOMAN in the photo with you..quite a few guys have that and I JUST DON'T GET it!!
It LOOKS like they are still in a relationship with her!

I don't mean when they have other photos and one has them with a girl & they have written "My sister" or "My friend" etc. that's fine, that's quite sweet, but when it is their main profile pic, sorry but I think it's WEIRD!
Or they have the girl partially in there it's like couldn't you get a DIFFERENT photo?
Maybe they are trying to say I like THIS kind of girl if you are NOT like her don't bother?
I dunno but I find it strange.
I'll take the camera phone pics over that ANY day!
Group or two of you as main pic NOT good, we don't know WHICH one is YOU ha ha (Well unless you have more than one pic!)

I have always loved a kind face. Such as Dawn French's . There is nothing more off putting than a mean looking woman no matter how attractive she looks.

Lusipher if that's their MAIN profile pic & a woman here is cuddling another guy and saying she wants a relationship what would you make of it?

I'm not jealous of the girl in the pic I just think it's odd & I'm curious what it means
MAYBE the guy's saying LOOK I DO have boyfriend potential
LOOK women DO like me
Or
THIS is the type of woman I go for.
OR
They just don't have many photos?!

If it's not in their main profile pic I think it's GREAT they get on with both genders and very healthy & they are friends with their ex.
I'm certainly not jealous of random girls in pics - you have one with your mates but you are in the middle - right?
And it comes across positively that you are social fun and a good friend!

I wonder if I should get a photo taken with a cute guy & put it as my main photo just to see what reaction I get ha ha
Probably none.

I don't have ISSUES it just puzzles me is all but maybe I'm reading WAY too much into it?!

If I DID have issues with the women in the photo then NOBODY should date me I'd be a nutter!

Maybe it's an affirmation, like you know a vision board they look at that pic & imagine how it would be to be in a relationship again ??

I don't KNOW!!

Guys with cats in their photos or guitars or singing btw...IMHO?
SEXY!!

Whether they look like they've got a decent sized knob or not.


I still stand by this statement. What could be more important?

Haha yes that would be a good idea. I'm afraid my radar is a bit off on this one, it's in for repair....

Lusipher

Um I don't know actually, it's for emphasis but I'm not sure where I picked this habit up from.
"Random caps lock attack". Heh heh, made me laugh - when keyboards attack & all that
Actually my keyboard is possessed and the spirit inside it REALLY LIKES TO DO THIS at times. I'm not sure how to exorcise it as holy water
would surely damage the keys!! ;-)

A smile in an everyday situation is always a winner – makes it look like you enjoy life and are fun to be with. I get put off by some of these deadly serious expressions you see, often on photo-shoots (no matter how glamorous they think they look).
