Changed it to the casual thing. Don't know how I missed that detail!!!

You guys should see my inbox. Seriously. I will give a couple of guys credit that they are smart enough to know it is all bs but let's be honest they would never have even looked at my profile without that old azz photo. It is bringing all the boys to the yard.

I am about to head into the city to run errands. I removed the app from my phone but I may have to reinstall it for the day.

This thread is delightful! Spot4username: Please could you do one for me? When a guy asks if you'd like to go for coffee, please please could you say, "Coffee? We haven't even had sex yet."




if she REALLY wants them to come running....


Can I buy you coffee before we cuddle? Clothes optional...

(don't forget to change your body type to thin athletic so you can have everyone with filters gunning for you too) :) more exposure to the deep masses :)

Can't wait for Henry to arrive :/ CPR on stand by

What? Are you making fun of me? Blasphemy, I say!!

Spot4username, the picture is 25 years old, you say? That would mean 1990, and you would have been 25 years old? Let me set the “waybackmachine” for 1990, here I come!!!

It is from '88 I believe - fall - like Sept - right before I was pregnant with our first son.

My inbox is a sh!tshow. I have to walk away from it for a while. I don't know whether to laugh or cry.

Spot, feeling cruel ?

Change your profile to the exact opposite , something like


" I'm a God fearing woman and won't have sex EVEN after marriage "

...


Wasn't it Eric that had asked for bikini pictures of some of his fellow forumites?

...if only he could see this...


However, I'd wager the 25 year old picture is unnecessary.

Not saying you SHOULD, but I'd bet even current you in revealing attire would net similar results.

Why?

Because of two simple things: the average IQ in the U.S. is about 100 and the mindset here of "Instant Gratification".

Your profile is simple and to the point. And it get's to the "end game" for many of the people that use OLD. Even the people that want relationships want sex, so you'll get them too.

Another experiment to try (I've done this one): Write your profile as if you're talking to a six year old. Keep it simple. Try not to use multi-syllable words. While it won't net you the kind of response that half-naked photos will, it will still increase your response rate. Why? ...well, i'm not entirely sure on that one.

I did it because I work in health insurance now and, as a part of my training, we HAD to learn how to speak like a Kindergarten teacher. I assume it's because of the aforementioned average IQ.



Disclaimers and asides...

Before I'm assaulted by people citing the difference between booksmart and streetsmart and all that nonsense, IQ is measurement of one's critical thinking ability; the ability to process information, the type of information is irrelevant.

You can have poor education and still possess a high IQ.

Also, I wanted to add, I use U.S. stats because, while POF is obviously available to other countries in the world, the U.S. is going to have more Users per capita.

Spot... well done.
And that bikini is awesome.

I also am doing an experiment.
Left my photo the same and changed the content of the profile.

In box also FULL.

Messages range from:
What you would expect. Men saying I am their dream woman.
A man sailing down the east coast wanting me to pick him up and let him do whatever he wants.
Thinking I am a sub.
Thinking it is a fake profile put up by my ex to get back at me.

And a couple who have seen and understood the 'reverse psychology'.


Will be interesting to see hear the results of your experiment saying you want to get married but no sex till after the wedding.

I'll agree with Mike, Spottie might not need the Barbie Benton photo, seeing how she looks now in a white shirt. BUT, I think she should do a final change on her profile, to "Transgender". See if anyone looking at the photo actually does read the profile :)

can't wait to read the greatest hits. not the least bit surprised. the guys on Fantasy Island are going to remember your profile name long after you take that photo down--"man, you shoulda seen what she looks like in a bathing suit! I saw the photo!"

Beyond any shadow of a doubt, at least some if not many of the best Profiles are by people choosing to not have any pics POSTED for the world to see. And there can be all kinds of perfectly VALID reasons but many here along with most in the RW have the "NO pics posted = some kind of scumbag/pervert" mindset. RIGID, Closed Minded thinking. Not an endearing quality at least IMO. In the world of non Forum Fish, the odds of any profile views/email contact are slim and none but not impossible w/o pics up. In the case of Forum Fish, it's a little different but with the #s that currently swim here at the Forums...as compared to 5 years ago? One would have better odds of being bit by a Great White and struck by lightning at the same time than being contacted from something you wrote here.

At least in my area, there are literally thousands of "younger" women with 8 "suggestive/illegal" pics up and a 2 line profile. Maybe it works for the younger folks. Thankfully, most of the older attractive women where I live are sharp enough to DATE their pics AND have something of substance in their profile. I have consistently found that serious people will put reasonable effort into their bait regardless of their looks.

The bottom line is that "attractiveness" and brains and willingness/effort to write a decent profile have no correlation IMO.

And all the SILLY people UNwilling to take a chance on profiles where most of the Profile is "agreeable" [to what you desire from a mate] but there are NO pics posted? Just another way to shoot yourself in the foot.

But it's OLD and that is one of many choices we all have.

SLAFFA for me, the men I have emailed with no photo, have never supplied a photo and never chosen to meet.

I really tried with one man.
He arranged to meet me for a picnic and the last I heard of heard of him was one hour before the scheduled time informing me he was on his way. Would be there in an hour and was bringing fresh bread and dips.

Never showed.

And they say women play games.

"man, you shoulda seen what she looks like in a bathing suit! I saw the photo!"


She may have taken it down, but it will forever be in my memory...

Well, at least until I forget...

I am heading out shortly to grab a bite and watch football - at a bar - by myself *gasp*

I will still post some of the messages. Probably sort through them and do it tomorrow while I am just sitting at work waiting for customers to come in. This has been a very interesting experiment. Yes, I could post recent photos that are more risque and I still don't look half bad but it really isn't my style.

Deleted compliments of the FPP no doubt. That would be the Forum Pic Police. Undoubtedly, squeeeeling with delite.

If only the real police could respond so quickly to crises of all types.
