Online dating with no picture
So improve your chance of success by keeping an eye out for the following red flags as you sort through potential date’s profiles: Photos: Photos can tell you a lot about a potential date.
No photo, or a grainy, out-of-focus or outdated photo, are a sign that the person probably has something to hide, or else is not really serious about the dating process.
Neuharth also notes that while it’s common for men to want to date women younger than themselves, if there's too much of an age gap, it's a sign he’s probably not looking for an equal partner in the relationship. One had to be held back by other members of his family when he tried to assault me. All I heard was “Queenie” this, and “Queenie” that. From a mother’s perspective, let me give you a reason why I would put my child over a man.
I feel like it would be a lot sadder to have a nice conversation with someone (especially since it's so rare on okc) only to be rejected strictly on looks alone than to just never get a response back.Christan Marashio, founder of And Thats Why Youre Single.com, adds that “it's normal for people to have some trouble crafting a profile and to use self-deprecating humor to lighten the mood.Too much humor is usually a sign that the person is insecure and uncomfortable with being vulnerable, which could lead to problems with emotional intimacy down the road.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.

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".I'm not trying to trash people who talk to people without pictures, but just pointing out that if you go the no-picture route that you're severely limiting yourself online.
