I don't have a pic and probably will never have one. If a man interests me I send a pic. If he is too shallow to talk to me since I do not have a pic, he is not for me. I will send a pic, and if he thinks i am dog ugly, he can say that and move on. I am not attractive to some and am to others.

Why would being a private pilot make him leery of putting a pic up for internet dating? This makes no sense. My porcine senses are tingling.

For those who won't talk to people without a pic, what if its obvious web clip art, like the "cats in pain" genre of pics?

I have made that mistake...
Not from POF...but another site back when I started this online dating idea...I was at Matchmaker and this man wrote me, we talked a bit, he seemed very nice...I asked why he had no pic, he told me that he had an ex-gf who was stalking him...So he would not put a pic up...Sounded like a good excuse...
Well what got me about it, yes nice guy, way older than I was given to believe, [he had lied on the profile about his age too...]

honey_kizzes:
Do you really belive that a picture would've made a difference? If he was lieing about his age, he would've most likely have put up a fake one anyway.

As for people that won't talk to people without pictures, It seams shallow and superfisual to me.

I've met people without pics, but I'm not looking to date, so I can't say their looks matter. Most of them were normal.

Come to think of it, all 3 guys I've met from online I didn't see a picture first! Wow...
Two were from Yahoo a long time ago, and last year a guy a coworker was trying to hook me up with. We chatted via email and then phone for a long time before we met. None of them were bad looking or weird really. Just no 'spark'...
I'm always interested in remaining friends but, for some reason, if it's going nowhere beyond that, they just don't put up the effort. Ha! Guess we all know why that is...

Why I do not talk to people with no pics:

-- it is not fair for them to see me and me not see them
-- if they end up being a creepy stalker I want to know what they look like
-- when we meet people in real life, we see what they look like
-- I am here to find people I am attracted to... if I do not know what they look like then I do not know if I am attracted to them
-- worst case scenario: they do not have pic cause they are married/have gf and they do not want their significant other to see them using dating services

kanuk...well I did a very stupid thing and let him come to my home...I was very lucky he was not some weirdo...so when he drove up in the car he told me he was going to be driving I knew it was him...but I will say...I will never let another soul know where I live...I learned from another experience that its not a wise thing to do...thank goodness I had my cell phone in hand and pressed my best friends number...she came flying over and helped me get rid of the weirdo...I learned my lesson..... from then on i meet people in a public places...

Yes.

We talked for abit and became good friends. I knew that were she not to be sexy in my eyes, we coudl still hav efuin and be, if nothing else, AWESOME buds. I repsetced her, and at the vbery worst, made a good ally and friend.

And..

She was smoking.


Many people dont put pics up JUST TO SEE who the shallow sobs are out there. I used to do the same. I also posted abad pic of me once, then about 3mths later posted an ab shot of myself andf apic that made me look cute. (we all have god nbad pics) Many of the girls that treated me rawe, called me names,. or simply ignored me came back kissin my ass and teeling me how much they loved my ad, and agreed with my statements/shared interest etc. THE EXACT AD I HAD UP THERE BEFORE>

(I simply told my online buds who the shallow easy girls were) Wanna get laid; show yer abs. ;)

No problem.


So,ya; if I like you and you can keep my attention, intrigue me, and make me sure that we can get along and enjoy eahc otehrs company no matter what...YOU GOT A DATE!
Mind you, if I am not at all attracted to you, the date may not go super long unless we're doin something super fun as a distraction or mutual enjoyment. ;)

That being said; I do also prefer to see some pictures "most" of the time so I can know all of you, or enough to make a decision on "dating eligibility n such"

Heck, it's not like I will onluy be friends with hot chicks..like come on!! THAT would be cheating myself of some VERY good friends!


Lie to me and its over though or..... pain for you when yer lie is turned into a spear which turns back into your soul.

And for the girl who said a guy can do anything to her if he is larger....dont you meet up in public first? Like HELLO!!!

Sure I have, because I feel that pictures don't tell the whole story. But I don't like to meet people who haven't seen my pic - if he's not attracted to me, why waste our time?

I never think it is a waste of time to meet someone interesting, which is why I don't care about seeing a pic. But not all men feel that way, and it can lead to an uncomfortable meetings.

I make this point everytime this question rears it ugly head,

#1 Are look's all that matter to you??? Most ladies say they don't care, that is a lie...(-;

#2 Are you looking to date Fabio,
Superman,or The Pengwin???
Fabio's busy,Superman's Dead and The Pengwin smells like fish...(-;

#3 Do you have a well grounded plan,realistic expectation's and do you want a show pice or some one who is wanting a real relationship???
If all you are intrested in is GOOD LOOKING call an escort service...(-;
If your happy with the quality of conversation and it feels right,the meet the guy or gal with no photo,as you can see I do post a photo but very seldome one of me...(-;

People do not post photo for a wide variety of reasons,I have dated very attractive women that did not post photo's and I'm met a few puppy dog's too...(-;

But looks ain't everything, personality is,that is what will keep you intrested and build a great relationship...(-;

Now mind you,any woman who write's to me,get's a photo on my first response,then it just depends on how I feel at the time,as to weather I ask them out or not...(-;


Also,if your going to meet some one that you have never seen before in a public place,it really helps to have exchanged photo's before you meet...(-;

Because the Red Head in the white Blouse, Or the Guy in the Green shirt method,never works out because everytime on the oppionted day and time,there will be 75 Red Heads with white Blous's on or 75 guy's with green shirt's on, perhaps it's just me,but it happens every time...*J*

So it is wise to see a photo at some point,but just because a profile has No Photo attached to it,is no reason to just shy away,there are a million reson's for No Photo,but you won't know unless you ask...(-;

I'm way more shallow looks wise when it comes to online dating than it does with meeting people in person right off the bat dating.

I've only met one guy without a picture because he offered to come right by my house. He's probably the best person I've met from the internet - he's turned out to be a really good friend

Actually recently I was talking to this guy that wanted to meet without showing me a pic first. He assured me that he was really cute (that's not even what its really about). So I told him to take a pic with his camera phone and send it to me.. and MAN would I have been disappointed if I'd met him! The bottom line is, no matter how bad [or good] you think you may look, its way better to have a picture.. just so there are no unpleasant surprises.

You're way more shallow nline then in real life? SO..when you finally meet the guy you go for the loooks on IN real life..what do you do? That's nnot gonna work out to well hu?

I ahve also been lied to where the girl was NOTHING like she decriebd. SSooo; I had noi qwualms telling her how disgusting she was. NOT for her looks; I couldnt care less, BUT fo rexpecting that she could lie to me so obviously yet STILL have a chance of enjoying a nice, fun date from me? YA RIGHT!! (plus she was hideous, but I thinkn thats because I was so biased because of her lie..*shrugs*..dunno)

CEC93013:
That's the best I've seen it put. Unfortantly, alot of women don't want good conversation or intelligence, they want Fabio, even if a cabbage is smarter. Go ahead ladies and flame away, but you know most you want that deep down.

BTW, as a side note. The lady I am dating right now, didn't have a picture on her profile, and niether did I. Both of us expected that the other person to be honest. We did exchange pictures after our first set of emails, and I wasn't disapointed, nor shocked. My advice, try building a relationship on more than just looks. You'll be happier in the long run.
