(quote) Joanna-615441 said: The purpose of this site is to meet, date and marry (although there are some who state in their profiles they are interested in friends only). For someone to just look at pictures and make contact without showing any interest in the profile no matter the length, indicates their attention is only physical. That is shallow and yes I find it insulting. If they dismiss the profile, then what else will they dismiss? I respect anyone who reads a profile, finds conflicts (IE age parameters) and sends a request to the person to reconsider. It shows a true interest in the person.
I agree with you here 100%. It means a lot when someone messages me and the things they mention show that they have actually read through my profile. Similarly, it leaves a bad impression if they ask questions or go over topics that were already covered in my profile.
