Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doing all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright
I gotta wear shades, I gotta wear shades

My first photos posted were outdoors wearing sunglasses and I got a lot of criticism over them. I can't see your face, I can't see your eyes. I wasn't hiding anything so I don't think you should automatically read anything into it. I said I am outdoors all the time, I gotta wear shades! But, I took my sunglasses off, now I am squinting in my main profile shot ,and even took a separate photo of my eyes. The result: the response I got both ways (incoming messages and replys to my outgoing messages) improved considerably. Can't fight city hall or a women's prerogative.

Well in my profile i got sunglasses on but I have a pic without basically to see that i have nothing to hide. I definetely understand if a guy or girl has sunglasses that assumes something to hide. Now I dont like judging people but I believe that sunglasses makes the person look cooler lol.

Some people look better with sunglasses on. But If they have other pictures of them with the sunglasses off well than I dont see what the big deal would be. So long as not everysingle picture is of them wearings sunglasses.

IF it bothers you "that much" ...then why are you "not likely" to respond...

DON'T RESPOND...Just keep it moving!!!

Why are you using your mind and energy to figure them out?

Don't you have a better way to spend your time?

I usually pass up the photos with sunglasses, I have to see the eyes.

After all, eyes are the windows of your soul!

If the women in the photo are kids, grandchildren thats fine, I see as family oriented type person.

Lots of women with only pics of them in sunglasses, too. If I can't see your eyes, I just move on.

People wearing sunglasses in all their pictures should not be allowed. It is the same as no picture, a blank.

Oy!

11 pages about sunglasses in pics?

I have pics without sunglasses in my profile, hell, I even have pics with no hat...

I live in Florida, I'm bald and my eyes are sensitive to the light. No surprises and no issues that need tissues. So sorry for those who read too much into it. Lighten up!

But, blank's are allowed!! Lol Strange rules, where mods purge pics without enough face, but blanks are acceptable.

Yes, I hate pictures of men if they wear sunglasses, are with other women (bad taste), and if they are with children, or if the picture is so far away that you can't even see their face. One guy messaged me and both were evident, that he had sunglasses on and his picture was so far way. I asked him what was the point of putting the pic on? He then said he would email me a closer pic. Well, the joker did, but he only showed me his nose & mouth haha. I wrote him back and told him how pathetic he was. Needless to say we never met.

i asked the person why is it small? he gave me some dumb answer i didnt bother to talk to him i dont have time to squint my eyes


He might have been overly sensitive because he's heard that same question a few times before in a more intimate setting.

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

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.

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.

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.

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.

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?
