I am so tired of coming across online dating profile after profile of photos sans the member. Shoes, sunsets, paintings, drinks on a table, landscapes, DOGS, space…etc, the list goes on. "I want to keep my privacy," "My friends or coworkers might see me," "Online dating freaks me out." You know what? No one is forcing you to join an online dating site and if you're uncomfortable with posting an actual photo of yourself, DON'T JOIN. It's that simple. If it freaks you out that much, GET OUT OF HERE. There should be an "I, Anonymous" style dating site for these cowards. Ugh. Listen, I'm NEVER going to be attracted to words only, so either delete your profiles or take the plunge like the rest of us and post a goddamn actual photo of yourself!
