I have not posted a picture because I want to keep my professional life and personal life seperate and I wondered how important everyone feels a picture is to your profile? Do you take the time to read profiles with out pictures? If you where interested in some one would you request a picture? I am torn because I know I like looking at the pictures but I don't feel it is right for me to have my picture up on the net(I am just talking about my own personal situation... this is NOT me passing judgement on others)

I might read a profile without a picture if the person contacts me first, or if I get curious about the writer of a particular blog/forum entry, but usually if I do my own search, I ONLY look at profiles with pictures. If I email the person anyway (usually if they write first), and they can't or won't even provide one through email, but STILL expect me to agree to meet them in person, I tend to think they must be hiding something, and will NOT agree to meet them. I probably won't write them for too much longer either if it keeps on like that.

Thanks for evey one's responses... I am now considering adding a pic. although I do still have mixed feelings about it. I don't feel I have anything to hide I am secure with myself and the way that I look so I wouldn't pull that fuzzy far away stuff(you might as well not even bother with a pic. if your going to do that) but I have just heard of such weird things happening on the internet like a friend sent someone a picture and then later just happened to check out a site and saw some one using her picture on there profile. I mean the picture is only a reliable as the person posting it....you might think you are talk to some hot sexy man or women and you're really talking to a gender confused trucker or something.LOL (not that there is anything wrong with gender confused people or truckers...don't want to offend any one)

First impressions is what we've always heard right? Well, I agree. I definitely want to see the person. I want to see if I am attracted to him. Maybe he's overweight or bald or a different race than I am willing to date. Why waste mine and his time if we are not attracted to each other? Anyone can make their profile out to look great on paper. To answer your question... no, I do not read profiles of men that do not have their picture posted. It's all a game if it's not up. Good luck!

a picture is very important. I do not read a profile if it does not display one. Everyone that I know that is on these sites feels the same way.

I think you answered your own question, you like looking at the pictures. I for one read the profiles although on MM people don't seem to take the time to actually write much so there is little to go on. I rarely look at profiles without pictures because there are just too many and I figure those people aren't very serious about this whole thing (serious may be the wrong word).If you don't feel it is right to put a picture up then you should contact the people you are interested in because it is likely your profile will just linger in cyberspace more than you would like. Good luck.

There's no doubt that picture profiles get more response to them.....but you have to do what works for you.I do read profiles with out pictures, but it's always nice to see to whom your reading about. You know that your going to get asked for a picture so be ready to offer one when you think the time is right. You can also state in your profile that you have photos and will share them privately. Good luck

Miszy, Knowing that men and most women are VISUAL creatures, I think it is important to include a picture with your profile. Chosing to NOT add one of course is your choice, but given that this is a forum for promoting one's self in the hopes of attracting a potential partner/mate...i think it is in your best interest to include a photo or two...Since you asked, Yes, I DO PASS BY completely those with no photos included with their profile. I figured they didn't "take the time" and neither will I. Just my "two cents worth." :)
