Maybe as many women don't either, but I don't notice them.

Really, guys, what is the reason for not having a picture? I can't understand why someone would do that on a dating site.

All I can think of is

1) just haven't scanned it in here yet. So it's not that they don't have a picture, they just don't have a picture yet.

2) my job is too important and someone who knows me from work might see me. Hmmm, okay....if you are in public office maybe....

3) I don't have any good pictures and I don't plan to do anything about that for some dating site.

4) I don't want to be flooded out with emails from women because I am so attractive. I'll be the judge of that! :P

Or ?

I mean really, what is the deal?

There are many women who do not post pictures, either.

I have pics, just not as my profile. My profile pic was noticed at work and my town does not comprehend the concept of a never been married fortysomething man. Rather than let it become a topic at work I pulled it. Now an account is needed to view my pics.

On a related note CM has been locking the "Why don't (men/women) do...." threads due to their antagonistic effect so this one may be closed soon.

And I should have clarified not having any pictures, not just a profile picture.

Count me among those who answer #4. laughing

Seriously ... for the longest time I posted photos in my photo gallery, but didn't include one as the main photo in my profile. Never gave it much thought, to be honest. I figured I want women to read my profile and get interested in me (or not) before viewing my photo.

I changed my approach when I realized that a lot of people include the presence of a profile photo in their search parameters.

No. 4 Pat, and I kid you not. I simply had to remove my profile picture as I got angry e-mails from the CM-head office that the flood of messages to my inbox almost caused the CM servers to crash. It was ugly. wink

Maybe it is because the picture may not match the definition of "slender" or "athletic" ???


Most men sure do want to see pics of ladies....

I recently read a profile of a man (with no photos) who said he had no photos up because he refused to be judged by a picture. scratchchin

I do, however, understand people's apprehension about annonimity. I actually have personal information in my profile that I wouldn't normally discuss with people in my everyday life- even my friends (who are not practicing Catholics).
