pictures on personal ads.

How much weight do you give a photo on one of AFFs personals? Are they really important as a determining factor? Or not really ver important?
I myself don't have one, do to lack of computer saavy more than anything, and I have never lacked for responses. When I like someone's personality enough to meet for the first time, looks are not what is really going to make or break the physical attraction.
I have gotten questions from men I have hooked up with, asking what I thought of their pics, and my honest answer that I really didn't pay attention seemed to surprise them (and maybe disappoint?).
And the pictures I do receive, or that are attached to ads... how much is a picture of a penis really going to tell me about this mans ability to fuck? All it tells me is that he has the equipment to fuck.
So what do y'all think? Is seeing a picture of my tits or my pussy going to somehow make me a better lay? Is there a happy medium to be reached here?

following thru with conversation is what's important. those that get off on talk but do not follow thru are those that require pics. face to face is what determines attraction. size and shape does not tell you what fun may await you; only in person encounters can do that!

I agree that face-to-face contact would determine attraction, but I'd feel better about meeting someone if I saw a photo first. At least then I'd know if she was even in the ballpark, and I'd be able to avoid an uncomfortable meeting. That said, I'm pretty new to this site and have yet to meet anyone.

Well, I check to see how closely someone meets my cupid settings before I worry about something like a photo. If that does not match, then we probably won't match.

I ignore the ones with no photo.

You miss out on a lot if you base a response on a photo being present.

I agree with justanne2 somewhat. I don't think blatant pornogrpahic showing of the "goods" (wether that be tits, ass, penis, pussy whatever) is going to get me interested. However I do look at the pictures and sometimes there are "special" ones that stand out. Not because the cock is huge or the tits humongous or whatever but because it's different, because it might give you the impression to convey something of the personality of the person behind the picture.

I don't know why everbody is showing dick or tits or ass or sucking or fucking. I want to meet people, not look at porn. I can do that in other places, right?

As you said it: such a picture isn't going to tell me much about the person (except maybe that they like to show off?). It doesn't say anything about the personality nor "the ability to fuck".

I tend to think that it is that mental/sexual stimulation that comes from engaging in frank conversation that is the important intially. If a person can pique my sexual curiosity, I want to go a step further. I have had ongoing correspondance where I was about to explode, not because of a physical picture but the pictures this person was able to paint in my mind.

I don't photograph well either.

[forest green]The question is, how do you get some one to respond to an e-mail or a wink? There seems to be a ton of "fuck me, fuck me" profiles or explicit photos on here. It seem to be a race to see who can be the most outrageous. May be it is more of an evolution thing. The bird with the brightest feathers attract the most attention. Hence, the T&A shots or the come hither comments. That way they can be more choosey to who they meet up with. I find that I have circumbed to the dark side to a small degree in my profile. Trying to be a little edggy but not "hey babby let's f#*k". Lot's of fun don't you think?

I like your pictures. <g>
People will either respond or they won't, ya know? And I am not sure, but I think the women may have the upper hand here, with more men than women on AdultFriendFinder.
