No experience, but wanted to say you aren't shallow.We are allowed to have preferences and specific likes and dislikes.I think its shitty for people to not put fairly representative photos.
Its frustration and really makes you second guess online dating.
In my defense I am not shallow but if you intend to fool me right from a first glance then how can I trust you.
From now on unless a girl has a full body pic or agrees to exchange facebook's then i wont meet. I am kind of surprised that anyone would support his position...
I guess I could have taken more time to not be such a dick myself...
Its a human defect; to be insecure about not being some kind of perceived level of attractiveness.
I know more than once in my life I have been attracted to someone based more on their personality and their mind and that molded how attractive they were to me and I am sure vice versa.
If that's the image they want to convey to the world, good god, what do they look like in person?
I have come across this problem twice with girls that I actually agreed to meet.
If I meet them in real life and they're 15% less attractive than the pictures, I think that hits the realm of dishonesty, which no one really wants in a partner anyway. But I mean, if you're a 6 in pictures, don't be a 3 in real life and think no one's going to notice.
I have and do, but a crazy work schedule leaves me little time to go out and mingle with the ladies.
So I recently became single and , LSs, decided to join a dating site.
