The men who are attracted will still write, the men who aren’t won’t, but you will have largely eliminated the request for recent, full body photos, because you provided them up front. Yes, you are being objectified, but each side is objectifying the other, no?
Don’t you expect that the men have posted recent pictures that honestly reflect what they look like? If a man asks for more pics after you have posted the extra pics, I’d “next” him and move on because we’re getting into creeper territory.
That they’ve been duped in the past and women trick them with angles and lighting. I’m sure I’m not the only woman that feels this way! I wince when they ask me to send a “body shot.” I hate to think a date rides on how my body looks from this or that angle.
I’m also uncomfortable with strangers I’ve never met having a stash of my photos. Most guys aren’t photo-collecting stalkers; they’re men who don’t want to show up on another date with someone who is 25lbs heavier than advertised. In fact, it sounds like you very much understand how the world works – you just don’t want to accept it.
After exchanging numbers the men ask for more pictures.
I understand they don’t want to be fooled so I send another one or two.
Usually, I don’t notice because I don’t WANT to notice, I keep hoping the jerk will end up being a nice guy. Real men never walk in front of you unless it’s to open the door for you.
If you’re dating a man who always walks in front of you, leaving you straggling behind trying to keep up, then you ought to know that this guy will always leave you behind.
This has led me to stop talking to some guys who may have been a great potential. Not because of issues with my image, but because they’ve seen other photos and I hate to think a date rides on how my body looks from this or that angle.
You can write off all men who ask for more photos by assuming they’re all shallow, which is partially true.
But, as you said, chances are that some of these men are decent guys who have been fooled by one too many women who misrepresented themselves.
And so, for the last three digits he simply used his wedding date (April 7) and his wife's birth month (March), making it ,743.
I have a particular question about sending pictures to potential dates.
He will never consider you his equal, he will never put you first, and he will not take your opinions and feelings into consideration because he puts himself ahead of you (and everyone else).
