Depends, my closest friends are female, and I do like to hug them and stuff. Even have a picture with my arm around one at a party (for the record, I hate parties). I guess it depends less on the gender and HOW they are behaving with that gender.

I'm not sure about this question, but for me it is better to have a picture posted, so at least you have an idea of how that person looks like. It is so hard to be talking to someone that you have no idea how he or she looks like. It is like talking to an invisible person. I guess as time goes by and if you really want to meet after a while that you have known each other, then you will know how she / he really looks like in person. Some people looks younger in their picture, some would look older, so just to really know exactly how she/he really looks like I guess would depend when you actually see each other. No offense to anyone here but there are some that really looks older than their age while some looks younger. Well this is just my personal opinion, and everyone is entitled to there opinion as well.

Well, I guess it depends on what kind of photos are loaded into the person's PROFILE. What is captured in a photo can tell a million unwritten stories and also it can trigger different perceptions about what's actually happening at the moment the photo is taken. So, my answer to the polls question is 'yes - THEY CAN BE'

I think so. Because you don't know who that person is. If that's the only pic you have of yourself then you should say that in the comment under the pic. That's a bad look. After all this is called "Catholic match"

I am a man, seeking a woman in my age cohort.....so I'm not really sure what the point of the question is. But beyond that, I have a comment on the photos in general: many women own up to being 60-something or 70-something, while the profile photo seems to be 40-something. That IS a red flag, indicating either dishonesty or displeasure with who she is or both. I don't need to know either.

Poorly worded question. "Are photos of the opposite sex within a profile a turn off?"

No, because if I'm looking at the profile of a potential interest (a woman), I'm expecting to see pictures of "the opposite sex" (a woman).

This should be reworded to something like, "Are photos of the opposite sex of the viewed profile a turn off?"

This question needs more multiple choice answers. Yes it is a turn off because the first thought is "competition". Most pics with family Members can be obvious but why would you put a pic of a friend in your profile unless that friend was very very important to you? I believe you can have friends of the opposite sex without it being more than a friendship and you shouldn't have to give up your friends just cause you are seeking a relationship so none of the multiple choice fits my opinion and it is just my opinion :)
