Online dating with no picture
EDIT: I also think if there is no picture, they are not serious about meeting, they are just wasting time. The part that makes that more annoying is that I work out a lot and am pretty careful with my diet.
I'll humor the ones who message me with no picture. I state that I'm only looking to date similar minded people and my pictures reflect that, so it's kinda like "did you even read my profile?
As a straight female, most of the time I am not willing to engage with a guy without a pic only to have to reject him based on his looks and and risk getting the insult-laden response back.
Self-description: If the user name or headline is weird, overtly sexual or otherwise inappropriate — Bangyourdaddy, 69Reasons — you can stop there, says Trish Mc Dermott, a founding team member of
Yeah it will be more work, (you'll have to message people you're interested in first) but it's the best work around I can think of. When I went back, I used an ambiguous (no face visible) picture, and it weeded out a lot of shit.
I had a profile a couple of months ago, and it attracted too many weird/creepy messages (me and every other woman, I know). I don't think I'm hot off the charts at all, but I think my face was just good enough in comparison to the other options in my area that I was inundated with too many people who went with "looks first, personality later".
Also avoid people that disclose too much, whether it’s a recent staph infection, bankruptcy or bad breakup.
And Mc Dermott recommends steering clear of people who don’t have kids but use undue space in their profile soliciting information about the age and sex of your children.
