Has anyone been brave enough to meet someone with no pic at all?Page 87 of 87    (47, 48, 49, 50, 51, 52, 53, 54, 55, 56, 57, 58, 59, 60, 61, 62, 63, 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70, 71, 72, 73, 74, 75, 76, 77, 78, 79, 80, 81, 82, 83, 84, 85, 86, 87)

How many people here have talked with someone on line, seen their photos and found them very attractive/to their liking, then met them in person and the person looks nothing like their photo(s), or the pic was of them 50 pounds and 10 years ago


I LOVE those stories !

^^^That's why it's best to meet in person sooner rather than later-instead of playing text tag for eons, and building up a fantasy image of the person hiding behind a screen. The first meet doesn't have to be a grandiose event. Spending 20 minutes or half an hour meeting face-to-face will tell you more about a person than exchanging a zillion texts with a stranger.

True, I dont understand why some people text back and forth for weeks without meeting.
I tend to try to meet within a week. Then we can find out if we actually click and not waste a ton of time.

Yea OK. This thread was started in 05.

So what. That's NOT why It has almost 3K responses. A couple or 3 of those are mine over the years.

Both quality of pics as well as lack of pics are w/o question the biggest downfall of people utilizing OLD.

This includes people on BOTH sides of the pic fence.

People expecting "good" results who have no pictures or nothing but crummy ones.

And the ones on the other side of the fence, those folks one million percent sure ANYONE on an OLD site w/o pics SHOWING is positively absolutely a scumbag or criminal of some sort. Up to no good.

Forum history shows that folks with this mindset ^^^ invariably have very poor "luck" with their "meets" if they have any at all.

I have met a guy with no picture at all. It was the very definition of "blind date". He was decent-looking enough but lame in other ways. I never wanted to see him again. He made a comment that I should try to hit on the waiter & wanted to thumb-wrestle at the table while we waited for our meal. I was 25...26 at the time?? & he was around the same age. I stopped thumb-wrestling in elementary school.

I have said before- when people go to parties & other social events, do they walk around w/ paper bags over their heads?

I've had blind dates before the days of the internet, cell phones with cameras built in, and selfies.

One lady I talked to on the phone, never saw her until we met at a resturant - it never went anywhere, she was not attracted to me when we met.

Another lady I picked up was a set up from friends - turns out she was just being nice to the friends, did not want to say "no"....... turns out she was gay. I'm sure there are others I can't remember.

In the early days of dating, some men had better success meeting women when they did not have a pic in their profile. But I'm sure they had a high rejection rate when they did meet. I doubt that would work now anyway, people are a lot more savvy.

I would not recommend meeting someone these days without a pic..... pics are way too easy. At the least, you want to have an idea of what they look like so you can find your date, lol! Also, I'd like to know there is a good chance I won't throw up when I meet her!

Reminds me of eyeballs from the CB Radio era. Loved those days. Speak to local women, and before you knew it you were around for a brew ;) Oh to be 18 again :)

I had a few women in mid 30's knock on a few times that I had spoken to and never arranged. The great thing was no pressure and people weren't crude. Another thing was they could earwig on you speaking to others. so it was easy to get to know you in many ways.

Now we're all reduced to thumbnails hahahahahaah. Quite pathetic when you think about it.

In a way, some do-when their entire lives revolve around their cell phone, and block out the rest of the world. If they're walking across a busy intersection, they would rather take the chance of stepping into on-coming traffic than take their eyes off of their phone for one second to check for traffic. Turning people into mindless zombies used to be the theme of sci-fi movies, but now it's a reality with cell phones turning people into zombies.
