Posting a "few extra pounds" doesnt keep me from getting email, and it does weedout the men looking for a "Barbie Doll", because I'm certainly not looking for Ken....

I put a few extra pounds to account for the mass of my member. Is that wrong?

Many, many overweight men cannot find that anymore, it evidently doesn't do a thing for that part of mens' bodies, unlike boobs.

I agree that with saying an extra few pounds and not posting a picture it leads people to wonder just how few is a few pounds.

So email guys you are interested in and send them a photo.

Not to be rude and cause discontent...but either Payson was truly burned by a female, or he just is too dillusional about women to want to find a great relationship. Honestly Payson, not being rude, just concerned about what seems to be an incurable bitterness toward the female race. And I am not refering to only this post, I read your profile.

I cannot put my pic on here due to my job.


Just curious as to what kind of job do you have that does not allow a single woman to post her photo on a dating site? Why is that their business? Think I'd be finding me a new job that doesn't dictate what I can do in my own life.

Maybe you could state in your profile that you will attach a photo when asked for one in an e-mail. I know many guys do that.
This way no one will see it except the ones you intend to exchange e-mails with or find an interest in . Just a thought. I never read the further posts.

It's the inside that counts anyway , or suppose to be. and one can often know that by the profile and the first few e-mails...I like to see a picture when I write to people it helps me to relate to the person I'm writing to.

Fair or unfair a lot of people will think "prefer not to say" or "few extra pounds" + no pic or just a face shot = fat/obese. A lot of men would date a woman that is actually a few pounds overweight.

It's interesting they always have a 'few extra pounds' option, but don't ever have a 'extremely skinny' option. I personally like a voluptious, curvy women, not skin and bones.

The problem is perception as some people pointed out. The 'few extra pounds' tag is heavily abused by both sexes on these sites. I am not a mean person at all, but I saw someone on one site who's profile said they were 5'2" and 200 lbs but had a 'few extra lbs' selected. To each their own, but I think that is more than a few extra lbs.

It seems like men can say average and have a gut. Athletic means they walk to a bar stool. A few extra pounds means they haven't seen their feet in years.

I say put what you want to put. If the guys on here can't tell what they are, why should we be so hard on ourselves!
