Seriously, people's (particularly the male gender) obsession with the physical appearance of the opposite gender is at a very unhealthy level on this site
So ladies, if you want a man to "like" your photos and increase the chances of him contacting you, display photos of yourself in a seductive outfit, or at least a seductive pose (you know, the pouty face with the big lips). If you aren't comfortable with your physical appearance on the original photo, let me know. I can alter it so you look like a movie star and then you will have all kinds of messages/emotes.
Second part- Although I understand and agree that some or most men seem to respond more to women wearing seductive clothing, I don't want that type of man. I couldn't trust that type of man. Maybe that's why I am still single.
First off - great thread, Marian.
Here is what I will say about man's appearance. I'm not a fashion expert by any means. I've seen photos of some gentlemen who just needs a little encouragement in the facial hair area, maybe a nicer haircut and clothes that might better suit their body type etc but I find them all to be handsome, again some just need a little encouragement in those areas. I know they all can't be Darren Sharper or Ryan Gosling clones and I don't expect them to be. Just would be great if they were Christ-like.
In defense of make up hehehe- I don't wear it often ( only on special occasions, going out, when I'm playing with the band in an event etc). I don't even wear make up that often a work. But I do like make up . It's a way to highlight what we already have. Make up is not the devil :D.
Someone mentioned duck face - that's just hilarious. Do men really find that attractive? My friends do it out of mockery but I never find it attractive when women do it.
"BTW, I am VERY OPPOSED to seductive photos. I just made an observation in regards to women who did provide more "attractive" photos and women who didn't, and shared those observations to the CM community."
I will say this - I've met at least 2 men F2F who had NO photos of themselves. They just gave a general but accurate description of themselves. It was a leap of faith in a way but the meetings weren't bad. I went based on their profiles. They didn't look like frogs either.
I had a guy who was emailing me for a while but never wanted to meet. The emails were decent. But when I changed my profile photo, he said the new one was "nice" but he liked the old one better! He asked me to put the older photo back up! I said it was on an old computer which I recycled - ha! So much for that and him! Wasn't there an old movie, "Laura" where some man fell in love with a woman's portrait?
Even in person, people can be terribly RUDE. Men with elevator eyes - looking the woman up and down I remember an old famous "Oprah" show about Alaskan men who were having trouble meeting ladies. Oprah had an audience full of them and the men were able to ask some to lunch. One guy had the nerve to ask one woman to "turn around" when she stood up. I guess he wanted to approve her front and "rear view." Jerk.
Men are visual~ yes, but so are the ladies~ come on we all know we appreciate a nice looking lad. Just sayin!Here it comes....
But yes the heart is more of where we women "meet up" with men I know.
And Joan I knew you were kidding in that one post!
