Perhaps it's just a quirk I have, but its really really irritating to me and screams 'I'm unintelligent and lazy!!!'. Mistakes are fine, we all make mistakes, but deliberate laziness when it comes to having a conversation isn't okay.
^^Exactly!

I read what you write: if you write u, I pronounce it oo in my head. That sure doesn't make me feel all warm and cuddly inside.

This is not how most male friendships work. But the camera timer was invented for these situations.
LOL! No! Just have the friend take a normal picture! I am really turned off by guys who take the mirror ab shot. It's one things if it's a picture of him and his friends at the beach, but it seems really cocky to have a picture of your abs on a dating profile. Seems like that would attract shallow girls that only care about looks, but maybe that's who they want to attract?

Not to mention the fact that a lot of the guys in 'ab shots' look like they'd probably cheat on you in a heartbeat.

I once got this:

"So hey, are you interested in sleeping with a married man who really loves his wife?"

Not only was that bizarre enough, but in my profile, I had specifically said 2 very important things. One was that I was was looking for a marriage partner, and two, I did not have sex in the early stages of a relationship.

"Surely that doesn't apply to me" .....he thinks.

I don't like it when guys take mirror pictures. Deal breaker. No matter how rock like those six pack abs appear...the mirror picture is so lame. Does that guy not have one friend who could take a picture for his profile?
Women are so illogical lol. All these weird little rules. "No spelling or grammatical mistakes and only pictures of yourself in a certain context taken by at least one other person"

I just think taking a picture of yourself shirtless and posting it online reeks of vanity.

I don't see anything wrong with mirror pictures. Better then someone who is fat whose pictures are outdoors. They could take the picture but it has to be good. Why would someone put a bad picture up?

You can be down to earth taking your own pictures in front of the mirror.

That is just your assumption. Abs are definately better then some fat guy. There is no scientific research that shows this.
