So why do women have pictures of them with other men in their profilesPage 1 of 1    
So i dont get it about half the women here in my age group have pictures in there profiles of them with other men.
So I guess the big question is why?
Trying to show you are wanted? being here and from a guy's point of view why would I want to have a challange before I even meet you

Here's a key question:

Why did you post dark, gloomy, unsmiling photos? It baffles me. Do you think this is attractive? Many men post unsmiling, grumpy pictures and complain when women pass them by.

A genuine smile is attractive and inviting. Women want to see your eyes and smile.

I get it. You won't go after that half and the other half (without men in their pictures) don't want you...that sucks.

Really not a challange for me and remember I was refering to my age group......getting a little too mature to be playing young people games

And they are that are they not? so I guess the name of this site is generally overlooked or most you have never been fishing.
Most of the people I know that go fishing know it about how you present your bait. I have been other sites for many years and tried the nice presentation thing and just didn't get the responses I get here

Ideally, your profile photos (for BOTH sexes) should include...

- One closeup of your smiling face.
- One full-scale body shot so your physical shape is clearly visible.
- Some sort of 'social' group photo proving that you have family or friends
- Some evidence you get outside once in a while

ANY AND ALL photos with 2 or more people in them should be captioned describing the situation or the people standing next to you. <---- THIS is the main 'sin' online that people omit. So many times people just assume the casual observer is going to understand the situation perfectly - but they never do.

There's nothing wrong with anyone posing in a photo with an attractive partner - as long as we all know that it's your sister, cousin, or nephew standing there - AND that YOU are standing on the 'Left' and not the 'Right'. Captions can be creative and funny, and can really sell a profile well - but people are just damn lazy sometimes.

If it's not a challenge, then there should be no problem. With your shadow and then head shot picture, it would be a challenge for the ladies to get interested in you.
