I submitted photos yesterday upon joining this site. The nice people on here told me that it can take 5 busniess days before they may be everyone stand-by.

However, I happen to think that pictures are very valuable when doing this online thing. Of course there are the obvious reasons; you want to know if you're attracted to such and such person, and there are other reasons as well.

I for one, am always perplexed by people who do not want to post photos. I understand the common reasons but evenutally if you're goal is to meet someone, seeing what they look like is important. Like it or not, attraction plays a huge roll in relationships. I'm not saying you have to beautiful, (I've been out and about and see a woman who probably wouldn't be considered "hot" by many and it still makes me want to have wild monkey sex with her ) But I digress...

Pictures tell me many things: the way someone dresses, are they proud of their body, are they photogtraphed by themself or with others, is it a glamour photo, is it casual, is it outside, with their kids, with exes or wedding photos, (my personal favorite...this is always a red flag .

In closing, I do want to be clear that I understand that some women have issues with posting photos. Men do judge and I'm sad to say women have certainly judged me as well so I empathize. No one wants to be judged soley on how they look...that goes for "beautiful people as well".

So, I'm interested in what everyone thinks...let the bantering begin!

I can see why some people would not want to post a pic here (for perfectly legitimate reasons) but they should be at least willing to provide one in private email. And I don't mean one taken 10 years ago, or one of you standing on top of Mt. McKinley while your friend snaps the picture from the bottom of the mountain and there's an arrow pointing to a dot at the top of the mountain saying, "Hi, it's me!" either.

I think current pictures are vital... however I hate that scum sucking dick wad asshats will insult women based on their pictures...

So I understand why they don't post them....

Well although I have been accused of using this grainy old pic (year and half) to make people think I am better looking than I am, even tho i have new pictures in my profile. Funny thing is of the men I have met from this site, they tell me I either look just like that picture that I have as my main profile pic or that my pictures dont do me justice.............I can understand why people dont post pics.........sometimes people go out of there way to be nasty and if they cant find anything else they will make fun of how you look. Sometimes jobs and stuff also keep people from posting pics. For me its what you see is what you get.
