Does anyone know why some people post photos of themselves with their ex(s) hanging off their arm either in full view or just about cropped out of the photos? You can see strands of long blonde hair or a hand or fingers over the shoulder or something, lol. I am struggling to understand why folks do that. If they haven't moved on, why do they need to be in another relationship? Or if they are still with this person, what are they doing here? Some are photographed surrounded by a bevy of girls. Did they obtain these people's permission to post their full or partial images on here? I guess not. What is the point? Personally, I just walk right past these lot, but I'll like to hear your opinion.

Hi there Livnlov,

I appreciate your question and hear your confusion and irritation over some people's choice to post a photo with a visible hand/arm/strand of blonde hair or surrounded by a bevy of women.

2 ideas about the subject to share: first, I have actually posted such a photo in the past on another dating site. Reason was ... I LOVED the way I looked in the photo. I did my best cropping job, yet still you could see a tiny but of arm from the former beau. Long way to say that some people might really be "attached" to that particular photo and think they look terrific in the shot versus other photos that might not be as alluring. Let's face it, we all aren't blessed to look like you - gorgeous and youthful, that is!

I like to give people the benefit of the doubt (gullible) and believe that they think it's cool to show pix of themselves with other women. It could indicate that they indeed have close women friends and the men are attempting to show their sensitive side. Or, some men might be flaunting a bit their popularity.

In the case of plastering other people's "kissers" over the internet, one hopes that they have obtained permission or at the least, would be willing to "X" the person's face out.

Personally, I also pass right by those men who show too many (more than 3-4) shots with others, unless, of course, the others are dogs!

I like your blogging style and chutzpah. May you find fulfillment in your online dating experience.

Samantha

Hoping4, you're right about pedos, though - they are very smart, very patient. It is pathetic the length they'll go to achieve their sick objectives. As for CG posting a photo, I guess I have to stick up for him here. He's taken and only here for the blogs. Since statistically, profiles without photos get less attention and response than profile with photos - perhaps it won't be fair on his partner to have his photo splashed on the internet. I think she's extremely mature and generous to let him continue on this site after finding her, don't you think Hoping4? C'mon ease off on CG, lol.

LMSAO @ CG!! HILARIOUS!!

 

LIVNLOV.... I too find pics of men with other women to be "stupid" .. unless it is their sister or truly their BFF that helped them write the profile.. (not all men want to sleep with their best GF...)

 

HOWEVER.. what I truy find offense.... is the men who have their 10-20 year old daughters at the beach or pool and there they are "innocently posing" but their father has just posted them on the internet for the world to see..There they are in their little bikini tops.. THIS IS A DATING SITE, NOT FAMILY REUINION... People if you MUST place photos of your children... Make sure they are fully clothed!! I've dealt with filthy individuals in my life.. and if you don't believe me.. ask MACHEVILLI.... HE'S GOT MY BACK ON THIS ONE.. I HAVE NO DOUBT!! And we've never discussed it! I don't post my gorgeous girls... Esp in beach attire!!

 

MEN THIS IS DANGEROUS!.. PREDATORS ARE SMARTER THAN YOU!! TRUST ME!! They are smarter than ALL of us.. They eat, live and BREATHE to prey on our children.. QUIT BEING IDIOTS!

 

NGL2001.. GOOD FOR YOU... FINALLY!  A smart man who doesn't care to have his dauughter blasted all over the internet.. even if she is in graduation uniform.. However, I agree with LIVNLOV.. just write caption saying your arm is on your daughter whom you've cropped out! :)

 

And since CG is new again.....ya gonna put a pic up? Or do you always leave more to the imagination? :)

Tausi, You and I are on the same page, lol. CG, Delusional hardly describes you! You are one of my favourite bloggers here because of your very balanced and intelligent views. Coincidence can be unkind, lol. However, though I can appreciate the chance that the hottie you've been dying to talk to is available and alone, I can't understand why she would become interested in you when you are unshaven, not well-dressed and "look like crap" but not before then? Could these hotties have had a thing for men that look like crap (which I seriously doubt, though I can’t speak for all women)? Or perhaps, of course, she was always interested but you didn't make the move. Or because you've misread all the signals because you were just plain horny (borrowing your words, lol)! This is so funny. But again there is a huge difference between being seen with a hot woman or any kind of woman for that matter in real life with the resultant possible reaction of generating or eliciting attention from the opposite sex, and posting a photo of oneself and a female. Whilst being present in flesh and blood may work up some interests due to human magnetism, posting photos of someone else hanging off one’s arm like an accessory is very, very tacky and in bad taste, particularly when that person is supposedly trying to attract the best possible match for his next stage in life. It is in poor tacky taste – JMHO.

I think most of the people who do this are not looking for love. But you are right. Whatever it is they are looking for, it is pathetic to post a picture of oneself with another woman. Cmon, if i have to date a man even on a no strings attached basis, Its disrespectful and no woman can pretend to be ok with that. Creepy!!! Gals, run as fast as you can coz you never know when he will post your and his photo here.

lol i love it!! i thought it was just me.. alot of them use that type of pic because they believe they look good or lack of other pictures but thru and thru its a bad move if your really  trying to put your best foot forward...



Life is a journey of learning..lol

Yeah I see that a lot. The girls usually look stunningly beautiful. Whether it is his ex or just a friend, seems to me they are setting the standard high in what they are looking for in terms of appearance. Whether they will get that is another matter. I wouldn't post a picture with an ex. I feel the past is the past and you need to move on. Sarah :-)

CG, I know why you don't post any - it's because you are terribly handsome and spoken for, lol! On a more serious note, yes the nicely cropped photos are fine. The 'just about cropped out' ones are the problematic ones. They have these body parts in sight, that seem to belong to some non-talking extras taken off a frame of a cheap TV drama! As for the decade old photos, those are just a waste of time - they eventually crawl out of the cyber world to the real one for their first date - bang, their dates drive off without getting out of the car and they wonder why they've been stood up, lol! NGL - I'm sorry you had to take your photo down; a little caption saying that was your daughter's graduation should have been in good taste really and stop the complaints. However, if it was just an arm showing as you did not want her full image on the internet, then it would be a little difficult to graciously pull off captioning an arm. I have seen some full graduation or children's photos on here and I think it is very sweet and it shows that the parents are involved in and proud of their children. I think you did the right thing by taking it down - JMHO. Sandi - Ha, the Barbie Doll Syndrome. No you can't compete with that one. I am too much of a chicken to even want to try that one, lol! As for the full photos with the lady wrapped around the fella like a new fashion accessory that deserves no introduction, the no introduction itself says who this person is. It is funny.

It does make me scratch my head evertime i see a women that either looks old enough to be their ex or girlfriend. they never explain who it is with them. sometimes the photo of that person is fabulous, but they have to learn how to edit the photo.

there is one gentleman who has a picture of his deceased wife with him. it is very difficult to compete with a Barbie Doll. That same person writes about his fabulous wife and how he misses her.

belive me when i tell you, there are many women who want to comfort him. that is a good reason to do that. also, it shows that the man/women can attract the opposite sex. they want you to beat that. it is an ego thing of course, but not something that attracts the right person. i have edited my photos as best as i can. the pictures are so good of me, so i just took out the man in the photo.

also be sure you read their profiles. if they say they want an independent women, it is BS. that is why they show themselves with another women wrapped around them. that is what they are looking for. Watch out for the red flags.

Sandi

I can only give you insight from my experience. I had one photo up on here something close to what you described, you could see another person's arm and hand around my shoulder. It was at my daughters graduation and I didn't want her photo on the Internet, so I did my best to crop it out. So after all the accusations from women here, I just took it down.
