Posting photos on your online dating profile can feel agonizing, especially for women and most especially for women who are dating later in life.
Writing a profile and filling out questionnaires can be a challenge, but the posting pictures part is the hardest part for many.
I want the guy who wrote the profile, not this moron.
I got a bunch of comments — from both men and women — and the string of comments morphed into me sharing a list of about a dozen things I considered a real turn off on a man’s online dating profile. Adding photos is a good way to get a fresh look on the same site, anyway. On the same vein but not deserving its own category: blurry, over exposed, under exposed, or extreme closeup photos.

Probably because over 20 percent of women post old pictures of themselves when they were younger and often thinner. A man could easily swindle a woman into a date, or even a relationship, before the woman discovers he's not a prince but a pauper.Short but nicely written and says the kinds of things I want to read.So I strike up a conversation with him in the site’s messaging system.After I put out the call on Twitter and and the Dr.Nerd Love Facebook page, several of my readers kindly sent in photos of themselves from various dating sites for commentary and criticism.
