Can any men explain to me why guys post pics with no shirt one and either have bird chest, man boobs, or you can all but see pubic hair? Do you guys not realize this is not so attractive?

Or all cell pics that are not so flattering?

Just curious...

the person they are crafting their message for is not you. they are not the person you are crafting your message for. not everyone finds everyone else attractive, and that's what you've found. what were you expecting?

That is because there are lots of ornithologists on this site!

Maybe they want to display what they consider their best feature/s, smile?????

Seriously though, at least they are honest and don't even bother trying to pass themselves off as athletic. So be glad you know right away that they are not for you, either because you don't like what you see or you find the pic inappropriate, and skip to the next profile!

I'm still waiting for someone to answer this. It takes 15 seconds to borrow a camera or ask a friend to take a picture of your smiling face. Do you really not give a frick about how you present yourself?

(From the woman with no pics because she can't stand the attention. When I have the sanity points, I do post or share quality pics.)

for every guy with a lame shirtless pic, there is a girl with an over the head, gratuitous cleavage shot. stupid, attention grabbing pics arent something that only men do. i think its all silly myself.

At one time I was always looking for an explanation on why the young things would have pics exposing large quanities of boobies,skin and pics of their nice little tight bums. Now?????? I just bought myself a better pair of glasses. :O

You mean non-attractive-bodied guys going bare-chested. On another matchmaking site (that's free too), they found that guys who did have pics of themselves shirtless got more mail. Chances are, there will be more guys who have at least a decent upper body having such pics of themselves posted. You can't say that they are unattractive for all, if the guy's body isn't unattractive, as that seems to be an inaccurate assumption!
