Lack of Photos

SHEESH! What's the point of joining a dating site if you're not going to put a profile picture? It's the internet for Pete's sake. I went through the San Antonio Section and only about 20% of people posted a photo. Maybe I'm just being a diva. ./endrant

I hear ya.Between people not having photos and most people not talking on dating sites. I sent out a ton of e-mails out to people but only three people replied. The one reply see gave me her cell phone number without knowing me. The other person told me to e-mail another account but never replied after that. And the other person told me try another dating site because its more successful then heard nothing after that. I don't understand this.

Women can be a bit difficult and discreet. FavorHouse, why are you complaining? You don't even have a picture of yourself posted 8)

Well I'm glad you posted a picture Favorhouse and hey, maybe that's what happen with most of the women on here!!! They thought they post a picture, but they didn't or they had a had time "consolidating" their photo so that it could fit

Same concern. Way back I thought "Why do you have to have a photo, is this a way of screening people out?", pictures do not encapsulate the whole person. Well I have come to another conclusion, electronic dating needs as much information as possible.

I had a woman cook me over a fire pit when I asked about why she had to have my photo. The good part is her less nice write up side went south and her venom came spewing out. That interchange concreted for me she was not someone I would want to meet.

The part that concerned me was her comment, "Why shouldn't you see what your getting involved with?" A picture is a must to me, but the profile write is important also.

No picture, and many profile areas left blank tells me "I have a secret.", "None of your business!", or "Just don't care to fill this whole thine out." When I see no picture and areas left blank I don't waste my time. I took time to fill in the blanks, if this is serious I would think they would to.

You all bring up valid points. As for other sites, don't go there. They cost and hook you in with photos and validations, once on noting. The sad part is they have your money and no refund. I figure this site is free and if it is meant to happen online it mine as well be here.

I totally agree!! If the rest of us are taking the time to fill every part of the form out AND include a picture than I think EVERYONE should have to have a profile pic....it's only fair that if you can see me, I should be able to see you..ya know?

lol...right!! i went thru one dating site and eliminated some of the people i wasn't really interested in and the ones that were left didn't have pics and it was about 6 pgs....lol....i feel that it doesn't hurt to talk to people, even if they aren't what you are looking for romantically, you might make a great friend..some people are considerably stuck up and think they are too good to even chat with a person....they are the ones i DELETE off my search results...lmao

At various times and on various websites I have removed my pictures or not posted any pictures to discourage certain types of people from viewing my profile.

I kind of like the profiles that have no personal photo (but are still thoroughly filled out) because they allow me to focus on what that person has to say, which I consider the most important part of the profile. Photos are often distracting, and they are far less likely to draw me in compared to text.
