It's a while since I've online dated but I do remember putting a full-body shot up specifically because I kept being asked for one when I got into conversations with guys - presumably in a "making sure she's not deceptively twice the alleged size" kind of way.

Don't get why people bother if the objective is to pick up dates, it's not like you can keep up the lie in person!
I'm actually a fan of the fuller figure myself
But I think a lot of people won't reveal all about themselves in a profile pic...or their bio.. as they feel slightly vulnerable... putting it all out there to be judged by strangers and to be found not good enough....

Society tells us we must meet a partner the old fashioned way...to use a dating site in some people's eyes is an admittance of failure of conventional norms ( more so in years gone by thank feck) but perhaps some still feel the stigma... dunno just spitballing

Honestly, there is a lot to be said for celibacy.

They say the ones who talk most about sex are the ones not getting any.

I'm going to have to say the opposite must be true too. You wouldn't say that if you weren't getting any.

Celibacy sucks..trust me

Not if someone is asexual or has a low sex drive. Or if masturbation/sex toys are sufficient for their needs. More likely to be women than men I've no doubt though.

Lack of sex does appear to be more damaging to men.

Years ago I went on an internet date and found the girl to be way heavier than her pictures indicated. Had been nervous going because I thought I was playing near the top of my league.

Really couldn’t understand why she put up those pics, she was going to be rumbled as soon as anyone met her.

A big unit is the same as a big yoke. Your slang is not universal ye know.

I love how women can get away with saying no one under 6 ft and there's no uproar but god forbid if a man mentions a womans appearance

Why call women either? It's just that that bravado from grown men is unnecessary. Women don't refer to men as things.

Don't think that's the case on this thread though. Personally I cringe at women doing that too. Really lets the side down. If a man isn't attracted to overweight women, that's just his involuntary preference, which there is nothing wrong with. I don't care if he even puts it in his profile, because weight can be lost.

Whereas women who say 6ft only are discriminating based on something a man can't control. And they're ruling out lots of great guys who are maybe 5ft 9 or 10. But I doubt any well adjusted guy would want to get involved with a woman who puts that stupid specification on her profile.

But they can't get away with it, theres a thread of people here and in other parts of boards giving out about women who do just that

I'm not so sure. I think if a woman started a thread about a bunch of shortarses messaging her she'd be annihilated as some up her own hole bint.

Everyone has something they find attractive or unattractive. There's nothing wrong with that. But advertising it kind of seems a bit needless and/or narcissistic.

Although saying that..even as a bit of a shortie myself I don't particularly have a problem with men or women wanting certain heights...some of it is purely down to logistics.
