How about those with no pictures posted who request another picture of you and you have 4 or 5 pictures posted ??? When asked why do you not have a picture the answer given is because of my job. I have a very public job and do not want people to see me. When asked why do you want another picture of me when I have 4 or 5 already posted there is no reply ???

Is it possible that they misrepresented their marital status and are in fantasy land?

There is a concern about this right now for myself. I want to thank you for this post. I think that there are some people on here that are NOT who they make out they are.

Yes this is another problem when men claim to be a height and stature and then are not. The search for height is for a reason.

Hi laura,
I feel the same way. I get lots of viewed me and I check it out even though most of the time I just delete the email because if a man can't say a sentence or 2 than I'm gone. What gets me is when the same men view with no message. It's like they are peeping Toms. As for the no picture, I don't get it. A picture is worth a 1000 words as they say. I have asked the ones with no pics that keep viewing to send me a pic then they disappear. I expect so much more from CM. just goes to show you there are weirdos everywhere. very disheartening. Like they say " No Picky no watchee" LOL!

Hi Elizabeth,
I can only speak for myself on this thread. When I am looking at the photo album section to get a better view of the pictures in it, the person profile is opened up. What I like is all the different pictures especially if the person is traveling. This just gives me better perspective on the person without really looking at the profile. If I am interested further, i will then read the profile. To me,like you said, pictures speak a 1000 words.

(quote) Laura-857740 said: Hi everyone, can someone explain why a person would choose not to put a picture on their profile, on a dating website? Many men and women have stated that there must be an attraction. Seems only fair to place a picture on your profile then. When I don't see one, the first things I feel are: 1. They must be very unattractive (according to their own self analysis), 2. Their hiding something...like they're really not divorced yet and they don't want to be seen by people who may recognize them. I do not buy into the fact you need to get to know my personality first, instead of judging me for my looks. Dating does not work that way...when you see someone for the first time, it is the initial attraction that brings you over to them and begin a conversation with them. I have talked with several men without profiles and have gotten along well with them, but once I finally see a picture, I find that I am not attracted to them. Attraction cannot be manufactured, it's there to its not. (With a few exceptions I'm sure). So why not have a profile picture? What's your thoughts?
Laura, I agree with you totally! Finally someone said it. And the few dates I have had, none of their pics were updated at least 10 or more years older. And look very different. And the height and weight is way off. Lying is not my style. How can you build a relationship on that?!?

Hi Laura:
I used to have my picture until someone pointed out that it could be seen outside of CM. In fact, I Googled CatholicMatch Panama, and I was the first on the list! Further down, there was the whole post regarding one that was started on my behalf by Tricia for my birthday last March...
I do not appreciate my picture being on the Internet outside of the already potentially dangerous miss use here.
On the other hand, I have made good cyber friends here: some gone, some in the process of getting married, others still here. I do keep posting now and then.
I am also interested at the moment on just one specific man I met here. I have changed my status to Seeking Friendship Only because I do not want to appear as if I were "looking".
There is a lot more to CM than matchmaking - which is its obvious main purpose and why I joined. I truly enjoy the Fora and I learn from all of you. I am here mostly for the praying community. I will start the 54 day novena tomorrow.
I hope to have contributed a bit by explaining my very personal reasons for not having my profile pic - though I left the others up.
