I wish there were more full body shots
This is a followup to my last post about the online dating photo. I really wish more people would post full body shots. Everyone posts a head and shoulders shot (or at least something similar, unfortunately so many of the photos violate the basic rules of the last post). I'll see a profile that has well over a dozen photos (Match.com sure lets you post a lot of photos), but none of them really let you see what kind of body the woman posting the photos has.
There are probably two reasons for this:
(1) As explained in the last post, people are lousy photographers and have no idea what they are doing when they are taking photos and then again when they are uploading them.
(2) Women don't want men to see their full body because they don't think they look good. I hope this isnt true, but if it is, my message to women is that most men are not looking for anorexic model figures. As long as you look normal, letting people see the rest of you from the shoulders down will only attract more attention to your profile. Men are really easy to turn on.
