A picture is worth a thousand words

I start this off by thanking all of you who have taken the time to read my writings and a special thank you to those who made comments.

Since I got that out of the way, now it is time to complain about the general lack of viewing my profile gets. When my wife and I had an ad on here together, we were always get viewed and e-mailed. I realize that the blue bra and a well written profile helped our viewing. I know that now my profile suffers from DSM (Dreaded Single Male) Syndrome. I also know, part of it is that I have not posted any pictures.

So, now I’m thinking maybe I should post a picture to increase interest. The big question is, what kind of picture should I post? I kind of liked the shadowman that is on my profile…it makes me look slim and manly. I even got a compliment on it on a blog comment about my nice shadow pic.

A direct face picture is out due to the nature of my job and the general fear that a member of my family or someone I work with has an ad on here. I realize the odds are low but then again you don’t know my family. I like how one of the bloggers that I met in Atlant who is “normal” took a nice picture of her eyes for her profile. Creates a sense of mystery and sexiness. Don’t know if a picture of my eyes would work, but it is a thought.

I could go with the “Sleepy Hollow” type of picture. A picture of my body without my head. I seen a lot of headless people on AdultFriendFinder. Do I want to join the headless posse? I kind of like my head attached to my body, so that type of picture is out I think.

How about the “Eyes Wide Shut” look (a mask) as a variation of the “Sleepy Hollow?” No, still doesn’t do anything for me as I would still not have a face.

I can’t do lingerie….don’t think I would do my wife’s blue bra justice (few people could). I do have some Scooby Doo Boxers but that may not be a good picture.

I could do a tasteful art house pose. I think that the profile pics by two bloggers I met in Atlanta who were curious and like to be caressed are great pics. The pictures look very professional and create an air of class on AdultFriendFinder. I think women can do those kinds of pictures, but it is harder for men to pull off. Hard for us to look classy unless we are in a suit.

Last and not least (I hope people don’t consider it least) is a penis picture or as a friend of mine would say, “hey bitch, look at this” (Long story….believe me when I say he really does respect women). Do I have penis pictures? Yes I do. Are they good pictures? I think they are good for that kind of picture but do I want to be known as “Dick Picture Boy”. What If go to a meeting of bloggers…do I want to whip it out so that people know who I am? Probably not.

Any suggestions on a type of picture to post that will at least give people a small flavor of who I am? Any type I might have forgotten? Should I just post a picture of someone famous and get sued?

First, you're welcome! You're just becoming a regular blog addict! This is what I think about pictures... I agree with Jez, love the butt shots, you have a great mouth and nice eyes, those would both be good. Keep the weinie pics either in your profile or keep them in an album that way only women in your friend network can see them. I'm not sure I would use the cock shots from the mmmgood profile, if I am remembering right the female half of mmmgood's hand wrapped around is wrapped around. I really don't want to see another female in a picture of a guy that I'm considering, but that may just be me. I'm the jealous type, others here don't seem to have that problem, lol Mac

thanks for your views. As you know, I like your profile picture. I'm not an addict....I just write everyday. Need something to keep me busy.

I kind of knew that going in but thought I could be somewhat proactive. Us guys are a dime a dozen.

If you want to be creative, there ARE other body parts...

The hands come to mind. Feet generally work better for a woman's pic, though, since they generally have the better footwear choices.

If you have good arms, perhaps a bicep shot?

thanks for the suggestions. I could show my perfectly peidcured feet

I agree that women have the good body parts to take pictures of.

I will think of something

I think it all depends on what it is exactly that you want to portray. I chose to put this one up because I the pictures was taken by someone who knew me very well and I think it captured a lot of the feeling of who I am. If you like the shadowguy look, you can always do a silhouette picture of yourself...arms or back shots are good too.

I agree that your picture does show you in good light. It is well done and classy. If you didn't figure it out, it was one of the pictures I admired.

Pic a body part, any body part, just NOT the penis!!! Far too many dick pics in this place.

My favourite for a male is a nude from behind or a body shot with no shirt, just jeans etc....works for me anyway!!

I had no pic as a blogger for the first 8 months but that was just me.
