People surprise me sometimes

Or maybe not. So I did actually get responses on my ad, even without the picture. Even added to Hotlists! Now how does that work if you don't even see me. I think people need to be more discriminating.
Finally managed to EM with someone that I tried to get together with the last time I was enrolled on the site. Now how weird that this time I had no pic in my profile, but I get a response, whereas before when I had a pic, nothing! Weird. Maybe system failure. (These are the kinds of things that always run through my head! LO

I believe it's true that pics usually get more responses, but there are other factors to consider- distance from a member, content of profile, what kind of person/people they are looking for. What good is a picture of a straight man if you're looking for a bi-sexual woman? LOL...Besides, responding and adding to one's hotlist at least opens the door for more communication......

We have experienced some of the same things. But consider this; we also use the hotlist to keep track of profiles that we believe may have potential with or without a picture). This gives us a chance to browse the various profiles as time permits and email later when there is more time to write something meaningful. I added you to our hotlist right after reading your profile simply because of its content and the many similar things between us.

Yes, I have to rethink my comments because of some of what I've heard. I understand better now.
