The man and the profile pic

1 Mar

There is a plethora of profile photos on Plenty of Fish in which the single man is shirtless. 

That’s not necessarily a bad thing. Especially when their abs resemble a washboard.

<pause to visualize> 

I’m not one for muscles and all but they’re still nice to look at. Nothing wrong with window shopping…

Moving on…

99% of these photos are taken with the help of a mirror and a smartphone.

However, what is up with the mirror pics where the dudes push down the front of their shorts nearly exposing … ?

Is it like a preview of what’s to come?  Like a movie trailer?

There are also pictures of guys with gorgeous women that are obviously not their acquaintances. I don’t say that to be mean (lol … promise :D) but these women are models or cheerleaders – you can tell by the look on their face that they’re merely posing with the sad single boy. 

I’m curious if the boys use the photo as a tool to convince the single female fishies that attractive women like them.

I can hear their thought process now: “Look! I took a picture with a hot girl! Other hot girls will take the bait – they’ll think I’m something special!” 

Ooo and by the way, I actually received a marriage proposal from a boy who’s profile picture included himself and a half-naked cheerleader.

I respectfully declined. 🙂

    Seriously? There are so many weirdos out there. Be careful and get yourself some mace for when you actually meet them!

    It’s a generational thing — Too many guys today lack (severely) basic courtesy, know nothing about social skills, live in an adolescent-like, self-centered world where John Stewart is a “journalist” and ESPN their most watched channel on cable.

    ConnieMaria, Good on yer brother! You’re a beautiful, gifted, talented, gracious human of the female gland and I’ll send over Vito to bite off your butt if you swim in that gene pool.

    (That’s what virtual friends are for.)
