    I think you have a valid point. This is a DATING site after all. Looks matter, but we're not all looking at the same things; in all fairness I think anyone who initiates contact with someone on a dating site should have a picture posted or at least have one that can be emailed. Besides, I'd want someone to know what I looked like right off the bat...folks can be cruel and I'd rather not deal with that kind of B/S...and the B/Sers most definitely would NOT want to deal with me. LOL

    i think its natural to want a face. in public, we arent all running around behind masks or paper bags - you see everyone youre talking to. it just feels weird to not have that when talking to someone even if it is online. its too many unknowns at that point (personality, humour, voice AND looks -all missing? not a chance.)

    thats just theo, thats what he does.
    I feel the same way - looks or no, id rather have a face than some anonymous black hole. Also, half the time the profiles *arent* interesting so you have even less to work with.

    There's any number of reasons why someone wouldn't want to post a picture of themselves... some reasonable, others less so. I'm sure you're clever enough to think up a few.

    I find it interesting though that you can't even expend the minimal effort of winking or sending an email on the basis of personality. If they turn out to be ugly you can then stop talking to them but it's pretty sad that you won't countenance talking to someone without a picture to the point where you feel the need to vent.

    Maybe they're hoping you'll judge them on the basis of who they are rather than what they look like.

    Ludicrous I know...
