Seen it all, but what bugs me the most...

Wedding pics with the ex cut out...OMG what is that guy thinking? That we would not notice the long lace train to the left of him?

I also dont like to see a guy without a shirt...just tacky, in my opinion. Suppose though, perfect if you are just looking to get laid, cause that is the impression you're giving a woman...or minimally, your focus is on looks (your own LOL).

Another turn off, pictures of men with women draped over the shoulders (his cousin, I'm sure).

Just my opinion...one drip in the sea of humanity >: )

Yea I have to go withthe No picture at all thing too. Another one is. Women how show more of there breast then there faces. I mean , you may be a very sweet girl but that type of picture is only going to to attract troble. That may be just what ya get . I just feel that if you have such a pretty face & a great personality to go with it , why hide behind your hooters! LOL... by the way , if the offends anyone & they feel they have to defend thereselves on this , you would not have to if that picture was not on your profile . Like I said, just asking to for troble.

I hate when you find interest in someone, and you head to their profile to find 20+ pics of themselves... but no headshot. It also urkes me now that I am recouping from a skull fracture.. I have gotten like 9 emails for people wanting to see a "new" pic of me (Ie I have a pic of the fractureline...I might put it up in my prof if there is interest...) instead of mine which is only a week old!
Does anyone else ever get messages from people wanting really wierd pics from you, not like porn or anything, but things like..."Can I have apicture of you shaving... that is so sexy!" OR something like that... whoa...

It's true though. If some fat, hairy, 40 year old gorilla of a man posted a picture of himself with nothing but a speedo on, people would be saying "gross" or "put some clothes on".

Hell, if I was a fat, hairy, 40 year old gorilla of a man I would tell the other fat, hairy, 40 year old gorilla to put some d*mn clothes on.

Blurry or very low quality pictures.

Closeup pictures of just breasts or a tattoo but no face.

Pictures that clearly show someone as overweight when their profile says average or athletic.

Pictures that are obviously edited.

I totally know what you mean bored which is why I never post pictures of me drunk with a wine bottle in my hand, or cross eyed and about to fall over.

WHen viewing a profile if I see that someone drinks more than socially that is a HUGE turn off for me. Sure going out having a few beers is fun, but I dont want a man who sits at home every night drinking Sam Adams watching TV and playing on the computer.

people who use cartoons as their profile pic...second to people's pets, motorcycles and cars.

the only think that really bothers me about guys pictures are when they post pictures of any part of their body naked...nice pecs and biceps are great, but we can see that they're nice even under a t-shirt....they don't have to be naked...even worse is when they post picutres of nothing BUT their chest....a nice face is soooo much more important than a nice body....

Another thing I think people should pay attention to is their spelling and grammer....illiteracy and lack of basic intelligence turns no one on. A word here and there, that is ok, we understand that it happens, esp. if one is in a hurry. However, when an entire profile, post or email is full of misspelled words, run-on sentances and just a lack of making any amount of sense of at all is even worse than a bad picture....

Funatnight,
Lots of people play around and sometimes thats totally obvious (and kind of funny) but alot of the time these are the guys who go on the forums and complain that women do not want nice guys anymore and that they never get any responses, and maybe this is why. Maybe Bored would agree?
Cheers all!!

I think people who post cartoon/manga/anime art instead of a real pic are totally self-deluded.

I personally believe that you are saying to be true. I think your dead on. What I also find funny is your picture...is not of you at all...its of some anime thing or something.

Now I love some Anime myself, but wheres your picture?

Just asking, you might have it and I missed it. If thats the case I appologize.

I do have a pic if you look at my profile, I did not want my real one to be the main picture for various reasons. But it is clear, is representative of myself, etc...It would be hypocritical if I had said I did not like anime pics and than had one, but thats not the case. I was talking about REAL pic's, not cartoons, or art work or anything like that (which a lot of people have to represent themselves or their interests). If some people don't like those types of pic's thats cool too, but there is no need to be an a** about it. But I dont think there is anything wrong with critiquing REAL pics if it could be helpful to people who are really serious about finding someone. And obviously the majority of posters here agree.

And if I can be so bold to be immature for a sec, to the absolute loser a few posts up, Thanks for Coming Out Coolio...Havent got many responses lately ??
