I am sure you have heard or read that eyes are the windows to the soul. This is the biggest reason I prefer photos. I look into your eyes to get a sense of the person there. Does what I see match the profile and my interests (personal shopping criteria)? This saves both parties much time, as we both don't wish to sort through profiles that just don't fit. I have met non photo persons and have seen both sides of that coin. My discovery is most are hiding something, looks, weight, age, profession, or other essential information. Yes some do hold their picture to make a mental connection prior to physical, but even they tend to give hints on looks to keep one interested. Bottom line is do what feels comfortable to you,

Now for an interesting twist, get a web cam if you have high speed internet. This will allow you to see and talk with the prospective love. Yes this is obvious but now you can see them in there native enviroment, remember to look over their sholder too. This is no substitute for a real life meeting where all your senses get to chime in! Just another tool especially if your new friend it beyond resonable driving distance.

I think men get stranger as they get older.

I enjoy the company of my cats immensly and for now I think I will just stay that way.

Besides don't they say that when your not looking is when you find that special person?

It's not superficial, it's a reality.

There are *many* things that go into a relationship, and IMO, not the least of which is the ability to be intimate with that person. And, if you have to do it with the lights off, or with a blindfold on...it sorta takes away from the experience, no?

That's why cams are such a great invention. It's quite difficult to fudge those images.
