Do you read /accept/ invite/ etc profiles with no picture when you are on dating sites ?

Is a no-picture profile better than one with unattractive picture ?

What do you think?

I think you should have some sort of picture. Not for looks but something.

I personally would prefer to see a picture of someone just so I knew who I was talking to.

I’ve got an account on OKCupid, but it is there so I can take their funny tests.

I have a picture on my profile, but no text at all. Though I have answered thousands of their questions.

I’m not looking, and I never answer anything, because I am well and true to my one and only.

It is going to require or only interest someone quite special if you only have text and no picture.

That said, if you want someone who can and is willing to read, and if you are decently literate writer, you might attract someone who loves English (or whatever your native tongue is).

In this world, in the current day and age, that is about .000000001% of the population. the end, be true to who you are, even if that means taking the longer road, the steeper grade, the less-traveled way.

Because if you are not true to yourself, you will never find the partner(s) who are right for you.

Best Wishes,

When I was on eHarmony years ago I think that I talked to people who didn't have pics.
In general, if their profile was interesting with good grammar and spelling, I would contact them.

Looking is very important, especially important than anything for me

So no pics could mean no date to me

I have found that meeting people IRL is a whole lot better.

On a dating site, I have to wonder if the photo is recent (if I care about looks), I have to care about whether they have carefully honed their answers, whether they're attempting to present "who they want to be" instead of who they really are, etc.

IRL, I get to see them in action. Saves LOTS of emails/texts and those first few dates trying to see the bits in them that were in the profile, but not IRL.

To me, no picture means you have something to hide. Confidence is far more attractive than any physical trait, and no picture at worst means you are hiding because you have a secret (like you're married, cheating on someone, lying about who you are, etc.) and at best means you aren't confident.

If you aren't feeling confident, just fake it and post that pic! :)

the only reason I would go for a profile without a picture is that I would expect someone to be quite pretty and hoping to be judged on character rather than the optical appearance. but if there is no picture online how would the person ever have the guts to attend a date?

No ... no chance.

I tried it once without a photo. If I got along with someone I would send them a photo and a few did the same back. I just preferred people not knowing I was on there, because I like to keep some things private. I talked to a few people and met one person at a coffee shop. Nothing came of any of it. I eventually met someone in person and had a few years relationship, but our paths didn't click. I voted wrong....should be first answer..picture not necessary in beginning

Yeah, an unattractive picture definitely gets more from me... No picture tells me that not only are you not likely attractive, but even worse that there is a terrible self image
