It's a dating site; your children's faces should not be available for just anyone to screenshot and view. I always put a lot of pictures on my profile -- some close up and full body pics.

Maybe I live within my means and work my passion instead of seeking money and power."12.

I've seen more bits of men in the last few years from men on these sites than I have in my entire life." 30.

"Why do guys take pictures of themselves from the vantage point of their penis? Homie either bald, got a bald spot, or hairline so recessed he should just be bald already. As a fat chick, I wouldn't be able to pull that shit, the fact that you think you can puts me right off."24. "If I'm expected to look like some kind of hot trophy MILF then you better not be wearing old jeans and a Metallica shirt. If you don't mention something specific in my profile, like, ' I saw you like this band. Man up and talk to me like an interesting human being. Conversely, please don't exchange messages with me, then texts, then a phone call, some email, for days (or weeks! Here is my favorite message I've gotten of all time.

I saw them in concert last summer…' then I'll assume that you just saw my photos and wanted to get laid. And if you say you're interested in a relationship in your profile, you BETTER BE INTERESTED IN A RELATIONSHIP. If I don’t message you back, then I probably never will.

Not sure if he was making up his mind about something or hoping I would sneak a nudie in? Re-evaluate your pictures, and quite possibly, your life.
