pictures on POFPage 5 of 6    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
When I joined POF, I had photos of myself, prepared. to upload. nay even smiling
My question is in two parts
How can a woman expect to get replies to her profile when there is no photo to view the person.
the second part is, if the woman posts a few photos of herself, and she is not smiling what is other peoples reactions to her photos.

My answer to both, is
With the first I dont , bother to view their profile.
And secondly If a woman who post photos of herself without at least a smile in one Pic, I feel I would wasting my and her time, we can all have long faces, but people like to see the lighter side of your personality.
I think I will now go and dangle my worm over the bath . And see if I can catch a fisshie, or even get a bite

To be honest, it doesn't bother me if I get a mail from Mr Incognito who doesn't have a pic on here. If there is a substance in conversing, a photo will follow shortly and voluntarily. If not, 'fair & square' will materialise at some point ... as we obviously are not on the same page.

thanks all so far. for replying. its not a wind up, we all have different likes and dislikes. I just wondered what yours were.

I am still going to dangle my worm in the bath and see if I can catch a Fisshie, or get a bite.
a Merry Xmas and a Happy New Year To all the Fisshies out there.

[I am running on windows 98 and cannot view any pics unless I go around a friends house which isnt always easy.]

I'm on windows 98, I have no problems viewing pics,

plenty other problems though...still slightly better than
vista i suspect.

my opening line to a man with no profile is as follows....
hi...married or ugly?
I usually get the truth.....9 times out of ten married or gf

I get people that message me and obviously havnt read my profile,which i sometimes find annoying so dont really bother spending the time to message them back as they havnt been bothered to spend the time to read a profile.I think pics are more important to men but shouldnt it really be an intrest in the person and not the pictures.
Ive come across profiles with no pics but what they have written has intrested me enough to write to them.

For some people I imagine it's easier on here if they don't have pics.

It's probably more likely that people will talk to them if they don't realise that they are actually a bit of a dog.

Not catch 22 at all, what does it matter if you don't get messages from people who don't like the look of you? I bet there are loads who haven't messaged me because of my looks, or lack of them. Their loss.

I mail both with pics and without...No problem...I do find though a lot do judge me by my photos, but then again if they do that why would I want to chat to them...so it works both ways...

Yes, there has to be an attraction for a relationship to succeed but to my mind there’s no point in a physical attraction if there’s no intellectual attraction cos that relationship will go nowhere!


But, doesn't that also work the other way around as well? Most people couldn't have a relationship with someone that they didn't find physically attractive no matter how attracted they were to them intellectually.

I find it's quicker to weed out the mingers first before I waste any time getting to know them.

It depends what you are looking for really, I don't mind having ugly friends.


Fair point. But, you don't want to have too many. There's a danger that people could think that you are ugly by association.

But how many times have we heard the words "How the feck did he pull her?" Is it more unlikely in the age of internet dating? Probably.

"Now tell me Debbie, what first attracted you to the millionaire paul Daniels?"

Some peoples shallowness saves the rest of us so thankfully they are quite welcome to it.

All I can say on the matter is that I've never subsequently seen a picture of someone who has no pictures on their profile and been pleasantly surprised.

That can't be a coincidence surely?

The only ones I message without pics are those on the forum whence you get to know a bit about them and something prompts you to do so. Which actually, for me, is true of messages I send anyways. Helios and the Cats jim jams come to mind, super personalities, but too young for me personally but it is their personalities that stand out. it does though make you wonder what they look like. As humans we like to put a face to a personality.

I'm taking brunette girly to court for not wanting to jump on me, such discrimination against fat, greying, balding chaps is derisory and I demand compensation.

Saves me from a heart attack though.

Does anyone else not think that having a patient approach to who you have time for will actually help find a suitable partner?


Yes. I don't think that.

don't apologise johnny somebody had to say it! well done seems to have hit the spot!

astro only a dumb blonde would claim to be normal after talking sense on here:)
you're right that only a troll or someone with a serious disorder would rant on like that.

as to the pic's. the way i see it it's a question of honesty/openness. if you have a fear of rejection quit looking. that said when i first signed up i had no pic to post so had to take a couple, which didn't happen in any rush, as it's not the only thing i had to do.

as for you Brunettegirly you deserve a slap didn't you read the notice "don't feed the trolls":)

No pic = no contact!

Sorry, but I don't trust people who hide their identity, people without pics are less trustworthy! If someone without a pic posts to the forum, I discount anything they have to say, because they are clearly hiding something!
