So....I saw this guy's profile pic on his O.L.D site this morning where he had obviously "cut out" a woman's picture because he is hugging a big white blob (where he had cut her out) and posted that has his profile picture.... um really? He didn't have ANY solo pictures of himself?? Wow... Seems kinda tacky to me.

Then, the guys who take pictures of themselves holding babies but they don't have children..... or guys in pictures hugging beautiful women ..... what are the purpose of these photos? Desirability points?

FAIL IMO

Okay.... rant over.

I hate the ones that show their nasty house....garbage everywhere, layers of dust on everything, carpet that's never seen a vacuum cleaner, dirty dishes everywhere, etc.....

Yep - I even seen one that posted his wedding picture. You could actually see the entire bride but he had Sharpie'd out her face. Classy.

I do not think some people realize how much their picture portrays.

lieshurt - I am sooo guilty of looking more of what is around the person in the picture. You can tell so much from how their environment looks. In this one guy's pictures....every cabinet/closet/door in his surrounding had a padlock on it. Didn't matter what room of the house. I figured he was either in some halfway house or was Ariel Castro. Either way....next.

Edited...I do realize he could of had a child with special needs. But there is are so many places to take pictures that would not involve padlocks and chains in your pictures, right?

Yikes....my first reaction to that is he probably has a couple of teenage girls locked away in his basement and wants to add to his collection......

Padlocks would have bothered me as well

I've also seen douche, preparation H, jock itch spray and KY sitting on the counter in some of the bathroom mirror pics.

Oh, and lets not forget about those wonderful penis pics we occasionally get that are taken while standing over the toilet with the seat up. Be still my heart

I've seen many women cutting out an obvious man in a picture or cropping it so you don't see him but you catch his hand on her shoulder. I personally don't like the bathroom selfies. And the ladies that lean forward for the picture so that you can see her face and notice her cleavage at the same time.

I'm sure you like the added "Duckface" lips puckered out look in those bathroom mirror selfies....

Or what I call the "MySpace Picture" (this became really popular when that site was big). The over the head picture to make yourself look thinner. You don't see your double chin and you can't see a gigantic body. So many women fooled men with this. Anytime I see one I automatically think it's an overweight woman. But still totally genius!!! Haha.

Can I play?

These date back pre-SO but 2 stick in my mind.

The guy with 2 profile shots: 1) A gas station on a snowy night
(huh???). 2) Him dressed as a clown with his arm around an older woman (his mom????) who was also dressed as a clown!!

Secondly the guy scubadiving in a tank!!!!! You could not see his face due to mask/breathing apparatus. He aLso carrying 50 extra pounds and wearing a wetsuit that was WAY too small for him LOL

Ok... Who wants to play next?????

I immediately eliminate anyone who has a shirtless pic. Figure the penis one isn't far behind then! I also get really tired, living here in the PacNW, of the endless "dude on a mountaintop" pictures. Or people who post pictures in which you can't actually see them at all, or are so blurry they hurt, what is the point of that? Here I also get a lot "geeks in costume", which I am actually more ok with than some things!

I also don't like when they put up pictures of their kids. That seems ... not right.

She11ybeanz posted 8/6/2013 13:53 PM

1. Guys who post pictures of themselves lifting weights.
2. Guys who post a webcam photo of them looking at their computer screen on their laptop....(seems kinda stalker-never-leave-mommy's-basement creepy)
3. I "second" the shirt-less pics.... I mean....come on guys.... although....beware...I've had 2 guys send me shirtless selfies once they got my cell phone number... BLOCK DELETE!

None of those pictures in the original post bother me. SO had a picture of himself holding his cousin's baby. He picked it because it's a good picture of him. Most of his pictures are silly faces.

If there are no full body pictures, I assume the person is over weight.

If the guy has a hat on in every picture, I assume he is bald/balding.

THIS is so true. Just own it guys! I am covered in freckles....but I'm not slathering on the makeup to cover them up! Just be proud of who you are! You can't hide the obvious forever....

So this is what I have to look forward to?

I I have a friend who's a professional photographer. I'm going to ask for help. Sheesh!!!

AussieMum posted 8/6/2013 21:44 PM

My 'favorite' profile pics :

- the shirtless bathroom mirror shot.
- the pic of the motorcycle (hey I don't want to see your bike, I want to see you!)
- the pics where they're wearing sunglasses...

I saw one the other day where he's leaning in towards the camera with his hand outstretched, as if to shake your hand lol. Could be worse I suppose

I tried OLD but it wasn't for me. Some of these women were down right scary. I too was annoyed with the duck face, boob and ass sticking out shots. Come on what are you 16 ? And for the record there is such a thing as too many pictures. I don't care about your trip to Europe in 2007 or drunken photos from Vegas in 2010. And don't get me started on the ones who insist that their pet be in every single shot. LOL !!!
