Profile pictures, people! You have smart phones, otherwise you wouldn't be here... okay, fine, I suppose there may be some savages amongst us, but still. Your little ghost avatars are freaking me out. Let's see some faces, ladies and gentlemen, doubters and unbelievers! Get to it. I give you 48 hours...
ha, I do have an actual photo in my profile, my profile image is less offensive though. I can't use a smart phone, I am a Luddite on my laptop, and I don't have a real name, not one that I identify with more than any others. I have a different name most places I go. My birth family know me by a different name than what my kids do.
Negative. I am not here for dating, so it shouldn't matter.
I hate being treated any kind of way based on my looks (and not because I'm treated poorly, either!). I've always wanted to be invisible, and online is the only place manage it.
Finally, people have to respond to me solely on the basis of my words and the merit or character contained there in. Dream come true.
Photos, especially if used elsewhere, could compromise a member’s identity if used to search outside this protective, protected site.
When I did online dating for a few years (Match, Nerve) I met many women who didn’t put up photos. The only in-person appearances I remember being disappointing were of people who didn’t resemble their photos, not of those with no photos.
