I've had it since the day I left private school. So, I won't be parting with it anytime soon. "Parting"....haha. Get it? Oh, I kill me. But hey, any pain you attempt to administer on me would probably only be perceived as pleasure to my senses.

I HATE to say it, but I've seen profiles, again, I was last here in 2010/11 THEY HAVE THE SAME PHOTOS UP.
And, as I'm searching a specific type/age etc in a specific area, I thought, whoa, they should purge the system, but then I spotted the "online this week" thing.
Minimally deceptive dont you think?



I've noticed that some people declare themselves of being at a certain age when they appear older than that in their OLD photos.


aint that the gospel....a life of smoking, drinking, laying in the sun and casual exposure to leaking nuclear reactors couldn't age someone that much.
I'm talking what my first thought was a 15 year difference


I just spit out my beer. Thanks for the best laugh I had all week.

I've seen people in my area using the same pictures when Columbus discovered America. lol With so much technology there is no excuse to update their profile pics.

How about the profiles in which people "re-purposed" their old photos, by doing a little clever cropping and retouching, and then re-posting and passing them off as a recent photo?

It's pretty vulgar, particularly when they half-assedly photo-shopped their chin and not their neck and expect people not to notice that one body part looks 20 years younger than another?

^^add to edit: I meant one body part appears two decades older than another in the same region of the body.

Pretty dishonest.

How often are we sposda update pictures? My main profile pic is a year and half old and my face isn't changing that much week to week, month to month.

Honestly, if the same people aren't looking at it over the years -- it's not the "when" on the calendar, it's the "when" on our looks. Some people could have a 7 year difference in their photo that looks like they do now -- technically even moreso than a bad lighting pic taken 5 seconds ago. Some people could have gained or lost a considerable amount of weight in an extreme diet (or anti-diet) and look notably different in 3 months and should change it.

Especially if you use the forums and are a POF lifer, if you keep your profile open for business, even passively, you probably want to change up the photos, as other POF lifers in your area will notice. And people know other people who they introduce them on there, and you don't want to be "oh, that guy". You can keep a nice looking photo that's been around for a while as your primary as one just down the line if it still looks 100% like you... but it's good to rotate/change the pics over time anyway. A good strategy all around.

And it's always good to talk about your raccoon and baby cricket collection, too. Stating new adventures with them is always something I lag behind on.

OK rotated mine to one from this past March.

I think I look different in all of my pics, but people tell me that I do look like my pics. Not sure what that means!

Too funny, I had a pet raccoon when I was child. My favorite animal, and yes, I DO have a "raccoon collection". Over 200 items, from coffee cups, to oil paintings.

OT, I change with the season. Hair color and very tan, to no tan. I think people change more than, they think they do, from one year to another. Nothing wrong with providing new pics in one's profile.

Hi Igor.

I would like to know if there is a better site for forums than this one. I have not found it. Though of late it seems to be losing some of the more interesting posters I have to say. Hope they return, either in new guise or old.

Just reported someone for sending photos (my mail settings) and lo', while waiting for a reply to my well thought out reply, I googled their user name, and used googles "cache" from last year......WHOA....
lets just say, what has been seen, can not be unseen.
Completely redid their photos, stolen off the net, almost the same profile- verbatim- down to first date, job, education, grandkids, what their likes were etc, but.. changed body type, height, color of eyes, and oh, yeah, the photos...who does that?? wth




p.s. met someone for coffee, 48 year old woman, nice really..but NONE her photos showed, or the several emails mentioned her nose ring or lip diamond or whatever those are called...Might want to mention something like that before meeting someone..no?

You met a woman 8 years younger than you, nice you say and is a nose ring or lip diamond a dealbreaker for you?

LetitiaLeGrande, if something is a pretty big part of your life, be it style, religion, work, wouldn't you mention it early one when trying to establish a *meaningful* relationship?
Wouldn't you wonder, minimally, why something as attention grabbing as dual piercings at least in one photo? Its not really like showing up in a bright colored shirt is it? ;)

1 or 2 professional photos along with some more natural photos is okay.

Even though I am currently not looking, I am constantly updating/rotating my pictures. My main pic is only four days old.

As a car nut, now i'm wishing Peppie would put up a photo of her T-top Trans Am I believe she's mentioned before. And if the photo was in Kodachrome, so much the better. Maybe its b/c summer's coming to a close out here, the muscle cars are getting run one last time before going to a long sleep.

I won't bother changing my photo, b/c its not going to change the response rate. But if I had more room for scenery photos, i'd be plasterin' this place. Climbed up some cliffs that really set off the ol' vertigo, but the view with colored foliage still on the trees was worth it. even found a nice restaurant for lunch among the mill cities trying to return to financial life.

second that about love2laugh's photos, those things are awesome.
