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 !!

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!

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.... :(

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?)

It took forever for them to approve my pics :( apparently they are a little dark, but with a peice of junk $19 camera from Wally World, what do you expect? lmao

Pictures or not, I never seem to get any replies from men under the age of 50, within 500 miles of New York! :(

I couldn't agree more. It seems like most of the guys that send me a message or wink don't have even one picture in their profile. I would atleast like to know what you look like especially if I'm talking to you and feel a connection...it would be nice to have a face to match with your personality. ^_^

The only pics that creep me out are the most OBVIOUS nudies (and I've seen some doosies!! Size has NOTHING to do with it, trust me!! UGH!!)

I can understand folks being a bit shy, but as someone said before, I think it's great when you can put a face to the "conversation". It can only help......

oh, and from experience, when you're using the bathroom mirror to take a picture, and you just happen to be nude, make sure there isn't a mirror on the back of the bathroom door behind you...

I know folks of our, um... "size" are sometimes photo shy and afraid they will be judged on appearance... However the whole point of this site is acceptance of those who are a bit larger in life.

Putting a photo on your profile doesn't open you up to harassment or abuse here... It instead, shows you are a little more serious and not merely lurking around.

In this technology age, a quick digital shot shouldn't be too hard to come by. Many photos on this website (mine included) are either taken in a mirror or at arms length. That's OK! These work just as well and help others put a face with your personality and profile.....and speaking from experience...you might be surprised with the response!
