What if your friends don't take pics?

Some guys don't take pics of their guy friends.
There just aren't any photos of me taken by someone else that I have access to. There is one class photo, but it was sunny and due to transition lenses, no one could recognize me.

What say you ?
The ladies are all crying baby crocodile tears because you will not give them a chance.

Only date locally, and ask to meet asap (after 1 or 2 convos) and this will take care of all of your concerns.

It's not a gender issue, both sides do it; and yeah, I agree, no old photos.

He's mad about selfies because you can hold it at certain angles that make you look much slimmer and make your boobs look bigger than they are.

What amazes me is that there are guys who go online thinking that women who look like Kate Upton are just waiting for them to discover them.

I have to admit, I take points off for men with selfies. Bathroom mirror selfies are the WORST. and what is up with taking selfies in the CAR? Do you want to convey that you spend all your time there? And of course, SMILE! If your teeth aren't great, please smile anyway. And don't put several versions of the same photo/pose, as if you couldn't decide which is the best one.

And don't put up a photo of yourself with a stuffed animal on your head. It does NOT make you look witty.

Heavens, if your camera doesn't have a timer, go to a mall or city street and ask a random stranger to take your photo as if you are a tourist. Repeat until you've got one you like.

Um, time to update my photos!
