    i just saw a posting just a little while ago that I want to address. One of the members here has written a guideline on how men should post their pictures. I figured that maybe there wasn't a big enough guideline for women and I'd like to offer some of my suggestions.
    1. You shouldn't submit a photo of yourself if you look like you just got out of bed. I usually have to take a dozen shots before I find one that's appropriate for submission. Like I've said in past postings, I don't have the greatest face in the world so I'll understand if there's a lot of negative reaction to this posting. Please take some time in preparing yourself for photos. I've seen half these photos and I keep wondering if these photos will be entered as part of the Cannes or Tribeca film festivals.
    2. How can we tell it's you if we need a. digital enhancement or b. a zoom lens? A frontal shot or 3/4 close-up will suffice.
    3. Save your "busty" shots for personal moments. I'm not trying to offend. I love a beautiful smile and eyes that enhance a photo. The rest is up to your written profile where you can write what you want (within reason because you don't want management coming down on you)
    3.I understand that you also want to place children in you pictures and I'm all for it but also keep in mind that men look at your profile for a reason. This also includes your pets. I don't mind a photo of you with a dog or cat but if when you start to see the dog and cat by itself in the picture, then you start wondering about the person who posted that picture (I mean Yikes!!!)
    Well thats all I have for now on this subject. You have to remember that a profile is memorable but one with a photo is so much more. Don't worry though... the mystery will still be intact.

    I have a gripe about photos, there are to many people on this site that don't submit them.

    Don't believe toketee, she's a beauty queen in my eyes and in my heart. She's a great person to get to know and have as an ally. I am lucky and proud to consider her my beauty queen friend!

    I wouldnt want to post photos that have my kids in it because you never know what kind of person (pervert) may be lurking out there. I have posted pics of me that I think are pretty decent. However, being the "comic".. aka smartazz that I am.. I also posted some of me with my Mud facial mask on.. LOL.. and of me goofing off. That way people can see the "real" me. As far as showing the "busty" shots.. I think modesty is more attractive than bare skin. But thats just me. Even though a person may not be on here just for a temporary hook up... when they post a "suggestive" photo... they had best be prepared for some of the replies or suggestions they may get.
    Another thing that I cant stand is when someone uses a photo of themselves sitting with their arms around someone else.. That just isn't kewl. I mean.. if you are wanting to meet someone.. why post a pic that basically insinuates that you are already taken. Doesnt make sense.

    Okay Marvel, you opened the door, so I'm taking advantage of it. I have often wondered if having my daughters in my pictures was bad. The picture I have posted of me by myself is truly the ONLY picture I have had taken of just me since I got married (18 years ago) and posting it on here is the only reason it was taken. I could always post one of those, but (1) it isn't recent (2) I'm not sure what kind of message that would send and (3) no way.

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated -- I can take it.

    We have all heard the saying... "A picture is worth a thousand words". I can't stress the truth in that cliche' enough! I agree with the post below for males and females alike. Take some pride in what you put up, and above all, make sure that it represents you... not just appearance, but personality too. You can "see" sooooooooo much in a simple photo.

    I'm no beauty queen, barbie doll... but hey... I'm me. I will say that the cam is WAY to nice to me. LOL

    Keep posting the pics everyone... the more the merrier!!!
