Men who wear sunglasses in their profilesPage 10 of 13    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13)
In the great scheme of things, sunglasses should be pretty low on the list of things to be concerned about. Don't like 'em? Don't write to 'em. Why persecute the visually challenged? I wear corrective lenses. My shades are prescription. I need them to see further than arm's length, and bright sunlight gives me headaches.

Still got a problem with that? How about I just say they keep me from going blind from the massive amount of cleavage you display. Does that indicate insecurity? For who?

For the record: Cleavage will not get any complaints from me...but I don't write to boobs.

PS Hopefully, you'll note that I did take the trouble to post a few without lenses...but that's false advertising. In real life, you'll never see me out of bed or shower without 'em.

I think in most cases men with shades on are trying to look 'cool' because if they wanted to disguise themselves because they are married I think they'd just not have a picture and just include it when they message someone.

Whatever the case may be it is a huge turn off for me because I am an eye person and if I can't see their eyes then I am not interested......

I don't like hats either. The one's where they are wearing a knit hat in the summer I find really dumb....lol Or if they have 5 pics and in all of them they have a hat on I don't bother with....

hey there!

i actually said to a guy why the sunnies? what you trying to hide??ha ha
he goes i am in ..... ( whatever his job was) and i don't want ppl to know i am on here.
well derr i said. if they saw you they would be on here themselves.

and to answer your question i think it in very poor choice to wear sunnies, take a side shot or have a distant photo. I would never respond to a profile with this sort of photo.

Lol, what a nit-picky thread. Ever thought that some people have sun glasses on because the picture was taken outside? I guess some of you would prefer a squinty-eyed photo, though.

Men who wear shades in a dating profile picture are shady.
And showing that you have friends is so insecure. Like, who cares
you are still on a dating site so obviously you are needing some loving'
or something?

Hey you know i don't carry a camera around with me everywhere I go. Some of these pictures were taken by others and that's probably some of the best us guys are. I'm sure i don't exactly wear what's "metro" or the color of the season either!

"It's only if their sunglasses have white rims do you have to worry about them being a douche. "

Actually, mirrored Ray Ban aviators often raise my douche-bag detector.

ironically, eversince I put up my main photo w/shades, I've been getting way more profile views which has lead to more messages.

I like to go for that "Federal Agent" look. Its cool, its suave, and its manly ! Wouldn't do it in all of my photos though. I have great eyes , love to show them off.

Guys complain they meet women who don't resemble the pics they post... and then these same guys just hide behind their sunglasses in their pics.

Oh gee, I'm just plain screwed because I don't follow fad, fashion, or dating site etiquette protocol. Don't follow it in general life either. My name says it all. Yeah, I wear shades sometimes. Might wear a hat sometimes. I got hair to my asss. Sometimes its tied up. Sometimes its all crazy everywhere. I wear destructable clothing at work. I wear jeans and harley T shirts when casual permits. I have a penchant for oscar de larente, pierre cardin, rios mercedes, and tori richards when the occasion calls for it to be formal. I do not get caught in any one style. My freinds and family are getting used to my extreme changeling, and blending into my environment looks. I have way too many designer sunglasses. I feel its tacky to put up all sunglasses pics, and I don't. Got nothing to hide. And pics are current. I pulled my script KDs down so you can see my gorgeous turqoise peepers.

I didn't mind the attractive females in the picture...if they did it becuase they Need to feel attractive, I feel sorry for them. If I find out it's their beautiful sister...I dont take it so seriously. It could be his sisters. & He's a family guy.

I will agree on the wearing sunglasses. That is deceptive and obviously history has shown us that is NOT a good impression to start off with. After all, the eyes are the windows to the soul.

I've wondered the same about the many men that wear shades in nearly every photo and those with hats and shades in every pic. I literally can't make a determination if I want to correspond, because I can't even tell what they look like.

It's especially common for many male profiles in nc. Nearly 90% of the guys have on shades in their default pics. I literally had 12 different guys in my inbox all with shades on in their default and I was thinking "how original" as I went to clean up my inbox.

I wonder if we wore shades in every pic if guys would still respond. Many down here don't smile either, most either look angry, mean or constipated. It's very rare to see a nice smile and a man showing his eyes.

I agree, that wearing sunglasses and/or a ball cap in a profile picture is a bad idea. But on the same token, how many women (especially older women) dye their hair, and have the artificial hair color in their profile pics? Why not have a picture with you're real, natural hair color instead of a phony color? Why would women hide their hair color, but expect guys to not hide any part of their head? Double standard, anyone?

I'm not sure I see the connection of any double standard. With so many guys wearing hats and shades, you literally can't see their face. I mean I can't, so it's almost like they may as forgo all of the hat and shades pics, because I won't know what they look like anyway.

As far as hair dye, are you talking about the bright colors that some wear now? Like the blue, purple, pink?

That is why I never spend the night. I wait till the lady is asleep and then I sneak out. When she wakes up I am long gone.

That's the difference between OLD for many women and most men. Browneyes posted that she had like 12 guys that messaged her recently who only have pictures with sun glasses and hats on. I used OLD for like two years and can count the number of responses I got back on one hand. Guys pictures with hats and sun glasses- first world problem in comparison.

I think it's a common thing that I've seen women say they don't care for and I think it proves that we want to see a man's eyes, his smile, just as much as guys want to see ours. I think if most women had sunglasses on in their pics, it would amount to the same. You guys are visual and we just want to see a man's face, just as we would if we were actually being approached in person. If a guy approached me wearing shades, I'd be civil, but that's as far as it would go.

Women wearing sunglasses on their pictures does not bother me. I have never seen a woman that I was attracted to become less attractive when she removed her sunglasses. If I was at an outdoor event on a bright sunny day and an attractive woman wearing sunglasses was interested in me, I wouldn't dismiss her because of the sunglasses. Same thing with OLD.

That's granted, if it were an outside sunny location, but I'm referring to those that would wear shades inside, at night and under all situations.

I think that's because most women don't hide behind shades, I think women do it far less in photos, especially default photos - whereas that's one of the main things many males do is hide behind shades. Some guy even said he had far less luck in responses and I believe it as I had a bunch of messages from local guys all hiding behind shades.

There are many of us that want to see a man's eyes, his smile as those are the first things that I look at in person. Some act like they're in hiding with all of the shade photos and even wearing hats with the shades. Some will say they don't want coworkers and colleagues to see them on an OLD site - well if they do see them, that would mean they're doing OLD too.
