Okay, I know we all rant about OLD, but please, gentlemen, please stop post photos of you flipping the bird, it's just plain crass, and photos of you with a gun next to dead things. I don't care if it's the best buck, doe, fish, alligator, hog, pigeon, whatever the fuck it is, that you have killed in your entire life. If you're holding a gun smiling over a dead animal my thought is not "Wow, he'll provide well for us after the zombie apocalypse" but "Wow... he's going to hunt me down and murder me in the Everglades."

Selfies, shirtless, duck face, I don't care just don't flip off the camera and nothing dead in the photo!

End of rant.

PS: I'm sure women do creepy things as well... maybe there are also creepy women on OLD wearing camouflage and standing over a a recently castrated steer holding a knife, but I feel like that's a rarity.

also when u right ur profile, there is a shift key so u can add capitols wear they r suppose to go i mean when u say i it should be a capitol also u can put periods so it isn't just one runon sentence and u can also spel words properly so it looks like u r intelligent.

Umm...writing like a 14 year old cool internet writing style at 40-50 something? Yeah, it just isn't making me swoon.

I agree with both of you!!!

And please stop describing sex acts you want to perform on any woman. creepy.

Williesmom posted 3/20/2014 20:52 PM

also, please don't make your screen name be something sexual like


You get the picture. It's juvenile and gross.

The other day the local news posted a new "most wanted" mug shots collage. I swear it looks like all the local guys on

this has made me chuckle!!!

In the UK (no guns), but plenty of fish, topless shots, in front of their cars…..hey, ladies, look what I have!! Seriously…and they moan if they attract a gold digger I call it the "Peacock Syndrome"….sure is funny though.

Yes! to the writing….I'm totally put off someone who cannot not string a coherent sentence together….and if I get another "how's you doing?" I am scream

I think there could be a thriving business for someone who is willing to get hold of these guys and coach them on how to take a decent photo of themselves. I don't mean they should look like they've just come out of a fashion shoot, just NOT wearing a three day old singlet (vest) with sweat stains perhaps?

Also, anyone with a screen name of Stevo, Davo or Gazza is not even going to get a look in unless you are just looking for a drinking buddy.

Worst screen name I've seen recently? 5fingers4u.
Yep, I've used up all my stamps for that one.

This reminded me of this Louis CK monologue on dating.

"How do women still go out with guys when you consider the fact that the #1 threat to women is men? Globally and historically we're the #1 cause of mayhem and injury. We're the worst thing that's ever happened to them. You know what the worst thing that happens to us? Heart disease!.. ... but women are 'sure, I'll go out with you, alone at night'.. what are you, nuts?? - hi, where are we going? - to your death, statistically!"

Ha, I had a guy write me: "Can you help me out? What changes should I make to my profile to get someone like you to respond to me?"

I recognized it as a line but thought, OK, I am willing to clue this guy in and tell him "Remove that shirtless photo!"

I wasn't interested in him, so didn't correspond further, even after he took my advice and removed that photo. But maybe I'll earn some good Karma for giving free advice.

I know a photog who does just this. She has a thriving business!

LOVE that bit! The first time I saw it, I had to keep pausing the replay because I was DYING! I am giggling at my desk now just thinking about it.

I actually don't mind a shirtless photo as long as they're not *all* shirtless photos! Also, it's better if its contextual (e.g. at the beach) versus a shirt pulled up, pants half unbuttoned, dirty-bathroom, mirror selfie.

I just really hate the gun in hand smiling over a (literally) bloody carcass. I mean... really?! really?! Also why post photos of yourself flipping off the camera? Are you 13?

Nature_Girl posted 3/21/2014 18:38 PM

Are you serious? People actually post photos of them flipping the bird? That just astounds me.

I didn't mind the hunter photos. I guess I'm used to it since I grew up with a family of hunters. I enjoyed watching a deer turn into venison.

I do agree with you on the photos of guys giving the finger. There's no value in having a photo like that on your profile. Well, I guess it helps with the weeding process since you won't be sending him a message!!

Heart disease and cancer are the #1 causes of death in women in the US.

However.. see

Again, for women in the US --

Ages 1-34 it's unintentional injuries followed by birth defects, cancer, or suicide. 35-44 it's cancer followed by unintentional injuries followed by heart disease. 45-54 it's cancer followed by heart disease followed by unintentional injuries.

Homicide is not ranked very high for any age group except 1-4 (8.3%).

I LOVE those photos!

(I actually like some of the ones you listed, and have "check please" on a few others... Like do NOT pimp your kids for dates. But seriously... I like not wasting time. When someone posts something I rabidly disagree with, it's AWESOME! Because I can pass.)

I'm laughing my head off.

My foray into OLD was for a few weeks after DD. I kept thinking WTF? Guys out the weirdest pics up. Pouting selfies are not a good look anyone. Neither is lifting your shirt to show me your abs.

A GF of mine is gay and likes to send me pics she comes across on lesbian OLD to prove women are just as bad.

One was a woman in high vis wear in a disabled toilet. Seriously?

"bigbonetyrone" just viewed my profile. Thank goodness he has no photos. Don't be jealous ladies!

BAB61 posted 3/24/2014 00:53 AM

Oh em gee! LoL I haven't taken the step into OLD yet, but oh my CANNOT wait to now! I need the laughs! Seriously? BigBoneTyrone? Hahaha
