Do you send pics without being asked?

When you meet someone online, do you send photos of yourself before they've asked you to?

Why or why not?

I don't like pictures of myself, so no.

Browneyedlady Level 6 Apr 16, 2018

No, there are plenty of pics in my profile. If they ask for naked ones I block them.

helionoftroy Level 7 Apr 15, 2018

I've not had to make that decision, yet.

farmboy2017 Level 7 Apr 15, 2018

I don't even send them when I am asked. Nor do I like pics sent to me. I can see the pics one has here.......that's enough, and sometimes too much!

Should I hide my avatar from you? smile009.gif


Yes, but only of my genitals.

Seriously, no. I'm not looking for Ms. Right, so it's not really an issue for me anyway. But even if I were looking to date, I'm not photogenic enough to think that my mug is going to succeed where my words have failed.

Reminds me You're so vainj

Never thought of myself as photogenic. But if they are already a friend I will sometimes send a pic of an activity I am involved in that they might be interested to see and hear about

...Do you mean, ahem, pics? Absolutely not. That's just nasty. 😂

Face shots? Never occured to me to do so. I guess if someone wants to see what I look like, they can certainly ask for one, or check out my profile or whatever. But I think it would be a bit odd to send unsolicited pics, at least without some context.

DonThiebaut Level 7 Apr 15, 2018

Not usually

Donotbelieve Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

No. Not without being asked.
Why would anyone.


Never ever. I also never send nude ones either. I'm into your face first.


No. I typically have some photos in my profiles(s) and unless they ask specifically for others, I dont' see any need to send them more.

  • send pictures if it supports what I am talking about at that time.

no, i don't even have any photos of me anymore, maybe some old ones on facebook, but im so computer illiterate, i doubt id be able to get them from there to anyone else.

I prefer camming. smile002.gif

bingst Level 8 Apr 16, 2018

Absolutely NOT. I don't like unsolicited pictures sent to ME, so why would I send them to others. On the rare occassion that I DO get asked for a pic, I will still encourage more communication betwixt them and me before sending them a picture of me. Mind you, I have "profile" pictures on nearly every site that I frequent, so everyone has a pretty good idea of what I look like.

BearsNPenn Level 6 Apr 16, 2018

Haven't faced that yet, but no, l wouldn't. It would seem presumptuous.

Sticks48 Level 9 Apr 16, 2018

No, not really but its something I ask for fairly quickly because I like to know who I'm talking to

LeighShelton Level 8 Apr 15, 2018

I don't need to send pics, I have community accounts online, all they have do is ask to friend me and they can see all of the pictures they want.

Clare Level 7 Apr 15, 2018

NEVER! Due to the nature of my job & the number of wierd people trolling the net, it just seemed smarter.

LimitedLight Level 7 Apr 16, 2018

I am new. So I do send one if I have seen their picture. I think it fair. I don't mind. smiles
I am comfortable in my own skin today.

RUKittenMe Level 2 Apr 16, 2018

No , why would one do that?

markdevenish Level 7 Apr 16, 2018

I feel like sending without being solicited is kinda narcicistic. Why would I think someone wanted pictures of me if they didn’t ask? Like, Happy Birthday, here’s a random picture of my mug...


I send my songs. It's like an MRI of my brain. I actually had someone decide we weren't going to work based just on the songs on my youtube page.
