The bait...

Most dating sites I've been a member of have rules for photos.
No nudity (including guys bare torsos showing off muscles) one person in the photo, face shot where the person must be clearly recognizable, no children, no display of weapons, etc.

That doesn't stop people from doing what they want and not what's listed in the requirements.

A feature that was on POF allowed members a chance to view random photos uploaded by other members. It was amazing to see what people tried to get away with on their profiles. I believe if you flagged a photo it went on a list for the staff to review.

Tattoos for example. I suppose if you were an inkaholic posting only photos of your tattoos and none of your face is your calling card in life.

Your face obscured by smoke billowing out of your nostrils while you're holding a reefer is a clear sign what you are and your bait for what you are interested in.

Another form of bait is a photo of an older woman with her young, attractive daughter in the foreground. I'm sure she gets lots of hits that way as guys will check out the daughter and then bypass the profile of an older woman... that is unless guys are thinking that by getting to meet mom, there's a chance they can actually get to meet her daughter!

Using the wrong type of bait could catch you the wrong kind of fish.

POF is such a crap site these days...the age restriction is only 14 years...you have to give your mobile phone number...each time...they send you a code and then you log the code in...women can get you banned for the most stupid things...

Regarding the photos...I have profile photos...with an average looking women...surrounded by hotties...face only pics...boob and face pics...poor quality pics...pics with a woman and her children....

The other thing is...so many female profiles...tend to be negative....some so simplistic...that you wonder how they get on in life...with such a lazy attitude towards...describing themselves and trying to sell themselves in the best possible light...cause it's to evident on their written profiles and perhaps they are bot created fakery?

I have listen and read what many other men have said over the years...about dating sites you pay to use and many have said...that they were baited into singing up...cause they thought attractive women were interested in them and wanting to chat...but the only way...that these men could chat to the women...was by paying to sign up to the dating site...but when they signed up and messaged the women back....crickets...not a single replywow detective

So true Chat.

The obvious photo-shopped profile pic is another common bait technique.

I like the photo shopped thigh in the second IV drug user pic.



I wonder were they trying to making her look better or worse by slimming her thigh?
OC, not sure why the 2nd photo was tweaked as both photos were stock commonly found on the internet.

I don't use baits.

Being honest as to who I am scare off people.

It is better that they know I will not tolerate their bs. banana
