Hello Everyone,

I just thought I would share my opinion on Profile Pictures.

I really wish more of you would post a picture.

I understand the feeling that some have, being concerned that outer looks versus inner looks might push people away... but look at it this way...
Your here on a dating site, hopeing to meet people... which means that eventually, you'll meet face to face, so you might as well be open, honest and up front right away about who you are... and MOST of all.. be PROUD of who you are.

I personally like pictures because I feel they tell alot about you.... especially the eyes. They are truly windows to the soul.

I understand there are a few exceptions that cause some to not want to post a picture, but for the most part... come on all you lovely people.... put your mugs up and share your beautiful smiles !!

Yes Doe Bear.... this is most definatly an old topic, if you look at the date on the original post... it's from over a year ago. It just keeps getting added too. It's good to see you back. *HUGS*

Lets get real folks.

We all want to be accepted for what we have on the inside, AND the outside. BOTH. Why else would we be on website that promotes a penchant for beauty in "LARGE" sizes? "LargeFriends.com" describes a body size/shape, a physical description first. And it goes both ways...men should post a pic, & women should post one. We all want to know someone inside, and talk to them ,but yes, to see them too.


And for those who don't want to, don't believe in posting pics, or maybe can't post pics, well, maybe they would feel more comfortable at a dating website labeled "NondescriptFriends". For the NDP's lovers (NON DESCRIPT PERSONS)lovers. Once there, they can focus on everything internal,emotional,and itellectual, without the hassle of pics to cloud their judgement. How bout that?

Here's another bit of information to think about, regarding pictures....

Did you ever stop to think that some of us look at MORE than the person in the picture?

When they say a picture is worth a thousand words, that statement is soooo true. Browse around and look at some of these photos and look with your third eye. What's in the background? A person's enviorment can say alot. How are they dressed? But isn't that a bit like "judging" ??? No... it isn't. It is however a means of filtering. There is nothing wrong with owning the attributes that are, and are not, attractive to you. When your looking for a needle in a hay stack, it's nice to have some filters to help sift through all that straw!

Unfortunatly, not everyone is as open about themselves as our dear sweet SteveNads is... so these filters can help out during the weeding process.

Happy Hunting!

I agree that pictures are important. I like to be able to put a face to who is sending me an icebreaker or email. Having been overlooked and abused on other dating sites that were not geared toward people of size, I find this place to be a breath of fresh air!

I think that looks are important. I'm not trying to be shallow...it's the truth. No matter if your a size 2 or 32... there has to be an initial attraction there.
I wish more people would post their pictures too. It's nice to see who you're talking to. However, I recently found out that some people don't post their picture..they post a complete strangers.
To me, that is SO dishonest. This guy turned out to be married, and decided to come clean with me 2 days before we were to meet for coffee.
Heellloooo... we were going to meet, don't you think I'd notice.
Anyways... this could be a fun, safe place to meet people. If a friendship is made great...if a romance blooms...even better.

That's my opinion !
Cheers,
Cee

SteveNads,

You are more than lucky you are so physically attractive, and not old and feeble...because maybe you would be getting winks from little fat old ladies. I mean, all the cute smart girls here seem to adore you. And coincidentally they all appear to be of a compatible age for you.

lucky

It took forever for them to approve my pics :(
Pictures or not, I never seem to get any replies from men under the age of 50, within 500 miles of New York! :(


Singlewitch,you I are in the same boat it seems! I rarely get a wink from anyone under 50, and they are always soooooooo far away.A long distance friend is fine, and older men can be quite charming...but, ya know......

I agree!!! Pictures are really important. As much as we say that looks dont matter - i think they do. You want to be attracted to the person your with - i mean attraction does not have to come from looks alone, but i think that it is part of it. I dont think people should be shy about sharing their pics....there is something beautiful about everyone!!!

Definately agree here! I did a search of Scottish men last night...there must have been about 10 pages of matches, and only about 15 people had a picture! How disappointing.... :(

I think its important to have a Pict because what photo you pick out and how you look in it can tell a lot about your personality. We are thinking animals and as such we convey emotions and personality traits through body language as much as we do through our words. So think of a Pict as a still life example of your everyday body language and an expression of yourself. It might be the only truthful way of saying hi this is me, I'm proud of myself and who I am and if you don't like it to bad. In fact its probably better than words because its easy to lie with words but the eyes are windows to the sole.

Eyes are my thing so a profile with a picture and one that shows the eyes is a PLUS for me

Dear BARBIEISDEAD1024; your photo is so small, I know you are in there SOMEWHERE. A little bigger next time.
(I hate it when I have to tell a woman 'I wish IT were bigger', don't you?)
