My reason is I'm new hear and for the last day or so, I've had a look at some of the post and had a good laugh .....

I'm short, fat n' ugly.....I work in the public sector, and I don't want my work colleagues to know....also, I have some ex-lovers who will ridicule me if they see me on a dating site....on top of that, I'm going thru a divorce, and my husband is not out of the house yet....

...oh, and by the way, if you're wondering about something, the photos that I've posted are all stolen off the internet, I'm actually a woman.....

Actually I lied......I'm tall, muscled, broad shoulders, stomach like a washboard with bumps....my legs are tree trunks, and I have meat balloons for biceps.....

.....ignore the photo, that's an old git of an uncle, who doesn't even know how to spell the word "date".....

...but I'm actually famous, so to protect my Hollywood career, I cannot post my true self here....

....if you want a photo of me, please send me an email to the following adress:



Thanks for your understanding....

I wanted to post a pic .... since I don't have many (I dislike my photos) the one I liked was


this is how I feel about it .... moderators said rule is strict - it should be explicitly me.... well, was thinking about posting a part of me - in that case my profile would be deleted for sure :-)

So I ended up without pic....

Hey great!!!!....mugshots.....that's what I have up too...lol...I'll be honest, I was squeamish about putting my photos up, because we'd all love to look like a film star, but most of us don't....(except for all the women in Malta, of course)...but posting photos of yourself on a dating site is like having sex.....the first time is traumatizing, embarrassing, and awkward....but the more you do it, the easier it gets....


laugh doh

Oh boys, you got it all wrong......there is a boy for every girl as no comment about taste, but being smart inside makes up for much outside...now reading profiles without pic is kind of boring...unless you let your fantasy free.....and that could be worsekiss

I think I agree with Mirodenia ...... If a person is serious then they would post a photo. If they afraid of being recognised by internet surfers ..... then there must surely be a problem....?... huh? A couple of the regular members have put up a photo now and again .. and then removed them, for reasons known only to themselves........ but still a bit confusing.

I disagree... some even don't bother answering if no pic.... crying

Well - their right anyhow. But just maybe they are missing a chance to meet a nice person.
And some have false pics....

I described why I don't post it. Those willing to comunicate with me (as a person) will do it.
Those unwilling - bad luck wave

Not really .... some can be shy, some dislike their appearance (like me)....some are not comfortable by taking photos of (guess what - me again) ....

But like in other reality (not this virtual one) you have any kind of people around....

I use to blame people who judge first the look of a person. I learned and observe myself that I am influenced by the look of a person. Is this a normal think to do? I think it is.
But the approach of the lady who posted before is a wise one, we don't need to spread photos over the internet. The chances for somebody to stop to a profile without a photo are reduced though.

Jan,

Similar to your multiple choice question, the CS site requires a yes/no answer from people when they make their profiles. But as Hamlet said to Octavio " There is more in heaven and earth, Octavio, than is dreamed of in your philosophy".

Peoples lives can be immensely complicated. Some people dont give a damn about complications but most people do. That itself is one of the attractions of this site ie. anonymity. Compare it to an auction if you will. Some bidders are there in person and some keep their anonymity and call in with their bids. Why? God knows, goodness knows and person himself knows.

But why question the judgement of the people on this site who do not post photos? Contact can still be made on a personal basis if anything in someone else's profile is attractive and intriguing.

Maybe this is not a satisfying answer to your question. Very probably not. If your question is directed towards people who have photos, for their comments then you'll probably get a lot of answers condemning the non-photo profiles. That's obvious...they will be free, frank and fearless as they are. If you are asking photo-less people to reply - they are likely to ignore your question. That too is obvious.
