Deal breakers!

Minor rant time. I am constantly bombarded by all the things that the ladies don't like about the email approaches that are sent to them. Well, here is part one of two on MY perspective on this world of A and an F and an F.

When I go to a profile and see no picture. It says, I am not really serious enough about this site to post a picture. I know, I know, I'm to famous, I'm a big ass business tycoon, people might recognize me. Ok, what ever. There are so many ways to take a picture of yourself. Be creative!! I even have come to like the little black masks people draw over parts of their face. Even the simplest picture says something about you.

Next, Prefer Not To Say! Ok, your bi, or gay, or married, or whatever. Again, pick one. Because you know that we will just figure the worse choice!!

Profile, first paragraph. Tell us at least a little about you. Don't you fill the space with gibberish! Or I Don't Know What To Write! Well, go think up something! We all have!

If you put, "I am here just to fuck." Don't come all crying that that is all the email you receive.

Sorry. I have just run into so many of these that I just wanted to take a stand.

I tried to be honest and descriptive on my profile, but for some reason, no one winked when I noted I wanted my car tuned-up, the gutters cleared, a loaf of bread from the store and the bathroom repainted.

Yea, I can see that!! That's like my 'stay at home husband' idea. I think that will go to the trash soon.

Now Mav, you've had your stand, sit down and relax. To me the photos can be a network thing if people are really interested and pesonal/business resaons dictate a photo would not be a good idea. Eg. A lady i met from this site is a senior police officer and has 3 brothers and another sister in the same job(Catholics, i guess!). It would have been irresponsible of her to put face photios etc and for many of us that is the most important part, to see the eyes, smile etc. Tells you more than a body shot can.
The rest of it I reluctantly agree with because its you If you cant be bothered to do anything other than put in the andfandf stock answers then fuck off, you aint serious. That applies to men as well as the ladies.
Jeez, i write more on your blog than i do my own.
Get a woman man for goodness sake.

maverick1255 replies on 6/23/2006 2:55 pm:
I know! Did you see the "big ass business tycoon". I think it was a freudian slip at the time, but then I read it and thought, FUN!!

Yea, the photo thing to me is so simple. And people have done some very creative anonymous stuff. I just want to push more people for that. I have to agree on the full face. That is not necessary. You can save that for when you get to that stage.

HEY, it is passed the 7:15 deadline!! Are you still alive? Or at least a man?!!

LOL too true Mac, I esp hate the "I prefer not to say" ones usually means they are hiding something. I just made this 2nd profile to blog until my other one is fixed, so I didnt fill it out as complete as the other one.

I'll have a cafe, mocha, vodka, valium latte to go please!

Good girls go to heaven.....bad girls go down!!

Thanks, I am afraid that I will take heat for the next post, but what the hell!!

I dont know why....but it struck me funny that you don't have a picture and neither does the first two commentors! My hubby had a very bad experience when someone recognized him by his picture here even with the face blurred!

maverick1255 replies on 6/23/2006 2:58 pm:
The big guys in the overseers chair must have been messing with my photo. It is still there! Sorry.

Yea, I don't even mind the more anonymous stuff, for the photos. Just some image helps communicate.

HMNN! Funny thing my profile was about to get a pic this morning!! And sumthin will turn up soon. But as far as the pic?? I'll exchange a pic when I meet a new net friend or when I'm trying to meet someone. And that seems fair enough?

I have a prefer not to say on mine and it was not cause I put it there!! It may have been set straight now. I haven't checked.

And as for the profiles first paragraph. WHAT'S WRONG WITH GIBBERISH???? LOL!!!

maverick1255 replies on 6/23/2006 3:41 pm:
We expect gibberish from YOU!!! You have a picture, I don't know if I could believe it!! I will ASSUME that it will be a cock shot!! LMAO!!!

This drives me crazy too!! I have mine set so that people without a profile photo can't e-mail me. I understand why people wouldn't want an identifying photo, but hell...there are some here who have pictures of their hands or feet or even joke pictures....something, anything that gives me an idea of personality.

maverick1255 replies on 6/24/2006 4:46 am:
EXACTLY!!! Just a hint of personality!

Glad to see you! Stop by anytime.

I HATE when someone puts prefer not to say for their orientation and/or marital status, because to me those are 2 non-negotiable facts!

maverick1255 replies on 6/24/2006 1:59 pm:
Yes! And those do seem to be the most common PNTS! What do they expect us to think! Sexual orientation - GAY or BI. Status - MARRIED! Not the brightest move to make.

How large a city do you live in? I have known people living in such small places that any identifying info would identify them, and cause them problems. I also know women who list locations as much as 50 miles from where they really live for the same reason. And these are women who are interested and active in meeting men.

Go over to NightGuy's blog and read what can happen if you're too open here.

I'll stick my neck out here.... I don't post a photo because I wish to remain discreet, and you never know who is on this website.. Even if your "significant other" NEVER ventures into the computer, they have friends... and, there have been cases where I have actually seen people I know on AdultFriendFinder.

However, I DO add the note in any emails that I have a pic (face) that is available if I get an email or a response showing true interest...

maverick1255 replies on 6/26/2006 11:40 am:
That can be fair. I just think that there are a lot of ways to have a photo of yourself without giving too much away. Thats all.

Thanks for dropping in.

Hey, Mav.... I need an opinion..

I sent an email to a female ...... and, as I said, I added the note stating that I could send a face pic if she was interested......

OK... so, I get a response saying that she does not answer emails without photos.... however, HER profile does NOT have a photo....

things that make ya go "hmmmmmmmmmm"?

maverick1255 replies on 6/26/2006 7:57 pm:
That is a real dilemma. Yes, that is a problem. Since, I am naturally on your side , I would think if you would like to really reach her - you should be the man and request a picture from her, but provide one with the email to her. Here, this site, you will have to stick your neck out to get noticed.

Back to the original posting - I might try to create a few pictures of you, just not your full face. Then use these to respond to emails that request a picture. These will give you something to barter with!

Just ramblings of Mav

Interesting perspectives.
And, what about those with the profile completely off?
What does that say to the Mav? LOL
I am thinking of turing it on, just for you.
That would require somesort of pic.
TIme toget creative?

maverick1255 replies on 7/14/2006 7:54 pm:
Hmmmmm. I only worry that, are you real at all?

I do understand, it cuts WAY down on the emails!

Well, you pose an interesting question. To turn it on, just for me? Or not! Hmmmm? I have some pictures in albums for my friends. So, if you put a picture of you, in an album of your own, then invite me to your network - you can see me, and i can see you!!! And your profile never comes on!! Sneaky, huh?
