And for people who have no interest in serious dating and just want to find people to hook up with?Online is a much better way to accomplish that too.But the pattern is that they don’t stop demanding more.This has led me to stop talking to some guys who may have been a great potential. Not because of issues with my image, but because they’ve seen other photos and I hate to think a date rides on how my body looks from this or that angle.
I have a friend that goes on two or three first dates every week with people he already knows are potentially good personality and physical matches for him—how you find the right person, and good luck keeping up with him meeting people the old-fashioned way.But is this a positive development or something to be concerned about?Is online dating making the world better and dating more effective, or is something important being lost or sacrificed as a result?The men who are attracted will still write, the men who aren’t won’t, but you will have largely eliminated the request for recent, full body photos, because you provided them up front. Yes, you are being objectified, but each side is objectifying the other, no?Don’t you expect that the men have posted recent pictures that honestly reflect what they look like? If a man asks for more pics after you have posted the extra pics, I’d “next” him and move on because we’re getting into creeper territory.
