So although the option to select married is not available - he is definitely being very honest about his status.
- **THIS IS A CUSTOMER SERVICE ACCOUNT ONLY!**
- "This is the profile of a MARRIED CatholicMatch staff member and is meant exclusively to use for working on the website, ..."
As mentioned - more for any new members who may be wondering about Brian's profile.
I have noticed a bit of an "epidemic" of the following: A "new listing" response to search criteria----showing with NO profile photo....YET the no photo box indicates 9 PHOTOS....or 5 PHOTOS...and so one MIGHT think they just came on and cannot decide which photo.....for Profile. Perhaps this might just be a "FAKE" indicator, also???
So, when you click on the 9 photos...the 9 or 18 or 2 or 5 are ALL the empty profile boxes....This has been the case in ALL of the new searches that meet my search criteria...so I just will alter to PROFILE only....what a shame! On the one hand CM tells you to open your parameters...and then, one must constantly close doors because of pests!!!!!
I know that several CM women have been saying they are NOT going to click on any match without a pix...even if sent by CM search ....so I will join those ranks...perhaps this is the latest trend...to indicate there are oodles of photos in the album...??????
Anyway....I for one think this is a pretty good indicator that you have many just "playing" here...Waste of time!
But in regards to why someone may have no picture for their profile, yet many other pictures of themselves I offer up the following which I believe still to be the case here on CM
The profile picture itself has the potential of showing when anyone on the web accesses CM without being a member (paying or non-paying). The search for a given gender in a specific city/state gives the general public contemplating joining CM an idea of what its membership is made up of. Short version - profile pictures may be accessible to non members - whereas the remaining pictures in their profile are ONLY available to CM members who have signed up and passed the vetting process of new memberships.
It is for the above reason (amongst many others) that some members have stated in the past they do not care to provide a profile photo. While the above may be news to some - and always seems to cause a stir when brought up - that is not my intent (there have many posts in the past arguing the pros and cons of the availability of the profile picture to the public at large in past posts here on CM). I bring it up as a possible explanation to the many that wonder why someone on a dating site would not post their profile picture here.
I can say, and I may be wrong, that I do not EVER recall a single member who does NOT have a profile picture here complaining about the lack of activity they receive from other members. Whether or not someone visits their profile due to a lack of profile picture is never a complaint I have heard from the unseen members. I have seen many here take precautions about who they are in many forms - I think the lack of profile is just a different form of security that some members are most comfortable with in their time here and their searching.
I would imagine they seem to be OK - with people being NOT OK with their decision.
What I am experiencing is with CM Search Results. The ones SENT automatically by CM.
I only have one Primary Search.
So, CM sends "new results"....generated on that one "Primary Search".
What I wondered is how a whole "string" of "new results" in the last few weeks....ALL sent by CM have NO profile photos, NO album photos although the boxes have the words "+9 photos" or "+4 photos"...then when you click...it is basically an empty profile...and they are NOT labelled "NEW Member"....
again...I'm just wondering HOW they get "by" the CM listings with names like "christian" and "Hansom"...that are getting through CM filters....with little or NOTHING in the profile....
Like Jeff the OP said....it's in the last few weeks....sent by CM....I personally do not search...nor do I revise my search....I just was wondering what Jeff was wondering...these are "waste of time" results...I don't need nor want them...just wondering how they get referred...fake or empty??????
Thanks for trying to understand my rambling!
P.S. My Primary Search just is what it is...cause it has to be Primary! LOL Good News!
