what is it that u find in peoples profile pictures that turn u off right away?Page 10 of 15    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15)

nothing says cheap to me like a game of frisbee for a first date idea.


Though I suck at frisbee, I'd sure go on a frisbee date.

After all, isn't going on a date an effort to get to know someone, not how much they're willing to spend on you?

I will never get that mindset personally. Who cares how much money is spent, as long as you have a good time and get a feel for what that person is like and if you might be compatible with them.

.........that a person does get a feel/instinct about another person...


I instinctively would rather feel the person than to sit and look at any pictures! To the Moon Alice, to the Moon!!

Some of the funniest I think are when the younger ladies try to make their profile seem larger than it is (the bust area). As I recall, the best way to enhance the appearance is to take a shot looking up at the boobs, not down on them, but in real life, I would rather go down on them than have to come up on them, less chance of getting the wrong impression!!!

I hate when the pictures have ugly people in them who want to date you.

I don't like it, not one bit.

Men that put christian in their profile, but don't even know what being a Christian means.
You need to read John 3:16 in the bible. Also men who think they are God's gift to women, you all need to take a good look in the mirror and see yourselves as you really are. Men expect women to not age and not have any flaws but they can put up a picture of them in bed, in an old t shirt, or just a picture showing that you don't take good care of your self.

i agree with the posters who are turned off by profiles that list religious affiliations. but for the opposite reason.their beliefs are not a concern for me... i just know that my own level and frequency of sinning will be an issue for them.

i also tend to run from a profile where the woman has hidden the identity of a former spouse or romantic interest in her profile photo by obliterating his visage with what appears to be multiple stabs and slashes using a knife or similar sharp instrument.

Picks of women with thier kids. I have no problem with women that have kids, but this isn't the place to show them off. Kids are great, I have three myself. But keep your kid photos off a site where there are people you don't know looking around.

Some of the things in a profile that disinterest me are:
*Bare chested or other bare things in their pictures
*Group pictures or with girls hanging all over them
*Never smile with your entire face to show it is a genuine smile and comes easily... this includes your eyes
*Pictures that do not show your face at all or you need a telephoto lens to see it
*Wearing sunglasses and a hat in all of them...Why bother?
ALSO
*When their profile states that they will reply to EVERY question and you never hear back from them
*Email me and tell me it's called a gym and to use one... yet you have no idea anything about me or that I have lost 130 pounds and I am happy being average and not a stick
*Asking me for girlie pictures of myself... what you see is what you get(they have magazines and google for those kinds of photos)
*Telling me my profile is a book... I like to write and communicate.... If it is too long then we won't get along

I struggle with main pics that are group shots and you don't know which one is the owner of the profile.
I hate this too. Usually they tell you but sometimes its ambiguous.

But I came up with a way to tell which one is them. Rate each person in the picture in terms of attractiveness -> the profile belongs to the ugly one.

I got a good one if it wasn't already written. I think its pretty dumb when someone is copying and pasting something they wrote, sending it to every person they message, only to get busted sending it to u again 3 days - 6 months later. :/ Lol

For example, there is now a guy on here who i met a few times the past few weeks, after talking for close to a year. The reason why i was talking to him so long and never pushed to meet him.......cause in his pics he looked TOO good looking and it had pics of his cars etc, so i put him off the the side as a "egotistical guy".

What do u find are things that turn u of right away from a persons profile pic? I found that i dont even read the profiles...if for some reason the picture makes me stereo type them into certain classifications...like in the above case "the guy who is too good looking for me, he must be after sex" lol I have finally met him and realize now that he is no such way, and he doesn't even like high maintanance chicks lol


Main Picture of a woman in the bathroom behind the condom dispenser. What are the implications of that?

I hate duck face and hunting pics.

as far as I'm concerned, hunting is something to put in your interests, but I dont want to see you holding up a fish/rabbit/coyote/ deerhead in a picture

Location can be a turn off. If all the pics are taken in a bar, or series of bars......or every pic has the guy with a drink in hand, but profile says he doesn't drink....and lets not forget the ones where EVERY pic submitted is of them with another person of opposite sex. last but not least are the ones that could be audition photos for porn. all naked chest, flexing abs, hanging off ass pants....just post your rates for service why don't u.

I think ya can block any image you choose with Adblock Plus if you're using firefox as your browser. I imagine other browsers have similar options, but can't say for sure.

Well I see this post is fairly old but as Im not here regularly I found it interesting. Maybe we should revive it again.

I find pics of men laying on a bed to be strange. It just seems weird to me for a man to pose that way. Also pics of men without shirts, unless at the beach, just turn me off. Dont get me wrong, I like skin as much as anyone, just not showing too much on a dating site on a man that I otherwise might find interesting. Of course I am older and I do look at older men's profiles. Not that they are not handsome at an older age, but it isnt about showing skin on POF.

Most men in my age group have hair loss, so show me your lovely head. Why cover it up so one cannot tell your true look. Bald is sexy too ya know!

One more thing is a negative profile. If you have to be negative about your dating experiences, time to leave the site for a while isnt it? Man Ive seen a few of those and it tempts me to ask what they expect to find with all that complaining happening..but I dont ask.

Have a great night!

Cat

I won't quite go so far as to deem it a turnoff but I wish the shots of gals all puckered up were fewer, and while it is nice to see the muscle tone in that neck of the woods, them gals are just ruining any potential surprises related. LOL
