Online Dating Photos

7 Aug

In attempt to be awesome and have an actual life, I nearly forgot to write a blog entry today!   Yikes.   But I DO want to talk about online dating photos again.

I can’t speak for ladies photos, because I really don’t meet girls off the internet..

But- to those of you new to the online dating world..  (Girls, I am talking to you in particular..)   Be forgiving when looking at these guy’s pictures.  Read the profile, too. I have met several people online, and every last one of them, with the exception of one, was WAY cuter in person than in their photos.

I met up with a guy once and I was almost positive I wasn’t going to be attracted to him – his photos were awful.   Turns out, he was adorable.   As a general rule, guys don’t photograph well.

If his profile indicates he is a total tool, AND his pictures don’t do anything for you – then by all means, don’t send or reply to a message.   But,  if the profile intrigues you – do it.   Worst case scenario you meet up and gain a new friend.

    My Baldy doesn’t photograph well…and he still hooked me…Damn him 😉

    You probably should avoid judging a book by it’s cover…sometimes the contents inside make the cover seem less…Geeky…Oh wait, that’s me thinking of Baldy again…

    “his photos were awful. Turns out, he was adorable.”
