Whats with the mirror phone pics?Page 1 of 2    (1, 2)
Im very suprised at the amount of men whos pictures are of them standing in front of a mirror (90% of the time with no top on) and a camera phone! Surely people have other photos that they could use? And do alot of girls have these types of pictures?

Well see, they know that they dont have any good pictures of themselves because they hate the camera. And, you cant just ask anybody to take a good photo of you because then they ask why and its like "Oh its for a dating site" and so immediately Mr. Guy gets laughed at by his friend, shrinking his balls slightly. "No, better to take it in front of a mirror" they will think. Hell, if my mother wasnt in love with her cameras there wouldnt be any real photos of me at all either, so I can see where the average joe plumber is coming from.

I supose that could be a reason, but Im sure if any of these people had facebook or bebo pages Im sure they wouldnt put up a camera phone mirror pic with no shirt on. Surley to God they could find just a noemal pic??


And whats with all the close up body tatoo pics, dont get me wrong I love tatoos on a guy but the pics to me come across as a bit vain................oh here look at my naked flesh!

if a guy has the body and the looks then why not? Its just a fashion the latest up to date style of photo. Not everyone wants to have a full clear photo of their face on a dating site. If u have a great body it will draw more responces than anything else

Other things that we don't want to see in your pic should include but are not limited too;
pets, children(yours or anyone else's), someone else's pic, your dad, mum or sibling.
I don't have anything against such pics, but they belong in a photo album not a dating site.

Later, Bob

^^^^^^

I have yet to see any man with a mirror photo showing off his cleavage!

Though given the limited choice from them, the bare chest photo is an improvement on the car one.

Ahhh Jaysus, those pics with guys posing in a mirror, with cam in hand are just laughable.
Ive even come across ones of guys in the same pose with fcuken sunglasses on........in their bathroom......WTF????
I wouldnt even dream of reading a profile with a pic like that on, and tbh i wouldnt even go into the profile in the first place.........muppets!!!

Listen don't knock the mirror pics or the bathroom pics, first of all the lighting in the bathroom can be very complementary like in a night club and a mirror can be very useful in getting the perfect head shot, otherwise your trying to look at your reflection in the stupid little useless mirror on the back of the phone!! As for the overhead cleavage shots there probably isn't a better way to get a lads attention. I personally have no complaints

You've forgotten some of my favourite pix... him with a gun, him pi55ed outta his tree, him with such gorgeous girls around him that I stand no chance, him with a dead animal/fish... i mean is 'look how sexy i am beside this corpse' what he wants us to say? Oh and I love a 'here look at my car' picture... priceless! Oooh and before I forget, I just 'love' the picture loaded sideways so I break my neck seeing what you look like!

i think it depends, i mean there are some fellas out there that are frankly a bit spa when it comes to camera phones and photography and thats the only way they can figure it out. altho as someone said, with some guys it does come across as pure vanity, especially if its topless. its ok if its a photo of him with friends on holiday or something, but lets face it, you dont really walk around your house with your shirt off do ya!? to me guys with pics like those seem to be crying out, "dunno about my personality but my sexy body will compensate". sorry lads, i want your brain, not your belly.

Maybe the only other pictures those guys have, are with their, family, like the missus, and such! Or out with their workmates?
Now us women would be more like to ask our friends to take anice picture. Don`t they have any friends they could ask? Ok, not any singles that they can ask, only married ones!! oops

I agree. I think it is sad the amount of people with no imagination in their pictures. I myself am beginning to get more creative but have no pictures taken using a mirror. There are more ways to get good ab shots, fellas.

Who cares if the person took a picture in front of a camera? If you're going to make liitle things like that a big issue you'll probably be on this site for the rest of your life, looking for someone who has a beam of light shining out of their backside.

And do alot of girls have these types of pictures?

Photos of topless women? Sadly not enough of them I'm afraid.

Sorry but I can't stamd people who take pictures of themselves posing in front of a mirror, it gives you the impression that they are full of themselves and vain. Puts me right off

I dunno, speaking as an Irish guy, I think there is still a bit of stigma around online dating. I would be afraid of telling my mates that I wanted their help taking a photo for one, sure they would only take the mick and ask 'Sure what do you want online dating for? Just come out on the pull on Saturday.".
Now, with regard to photos of you being out enjoying yourself, guys do not carry cameras about as much as women do. I know none of my own photos on my facebook or bebo accounts are of me out and about, and even from all my friends accounts, I have probably only been tagged in two or three photos (And I just think I look like crap in them). And this is coming from someone who is out most weekends!

And yes, photos in the mirror, photos taken at arms length, and lightbulb pics are very very common on womens accounts here.

So what if they photograph themselves in the mirror? It's no reflection on them.
