PassTheChocolate,

I don't know if you already answered this (and if you have, forgive me), but when you say you sent him a blurry picture, exactly what do you mean? If I asked for a picture or saw one on a dating site and it was shot from a distance so that you couldn't really make out the details of their face, that probably wouldn't bother me too much. Usually, when I want to see a picture, it's just to confirm the person isn't older or larger than they say. The pic doesn't need to a professional head shot where I can tell what eye color they have or how full their lips are. So when you say blurry, was it a bad photo or was it just shot from a distance or are you just really small in the picture?

It's also funny how people see dating as some kind of game where each side is assumed to be tricking the other. If you're someone who's entertaining the idea of a setup, online dating, speed dating, or something else, go in with an open mind. But if walk in looking for signs that the other person is trying to deceive you, then you're better off staying clear. I would never want to date someone who's already biased against the whole process.

I agree with PTC. It's sad that a person's concern for their privacy can't be accepted at face value, but is termed an excuse to just be secretive.
unfair dating practices, want lots of personal info on you but you are kept on a need to know basis. i have seen internat dating talk shows where owners of dating clinics for women teach the gals to misrepresent. they get paid to do this. as to the OP, men are wary of women who are heavy spenders. there is a reason soldiers drive armored vehicles in bagdad.

I used to come across several blurred face pics with full lips

Ten minutes isn't enough time to "get to know someone". I'd say you didn't give it a shot.

Still, it IS your choice and I have to applaud that. First impressions are important for some people.

Thanks.

10 minutes is enough time to decide you don't want to get to know someone. There many ways to annihilate a first impression. I gave it a shot in opening myself up to getting to know him and in trying to work with him while still maintaining my boundaries. It wasn't the biggest, most generous of shots, but it was a shot.

I'm confused. What about my communication with him indicated I was a heavy spender? Offering to pay for my own lunch?

It is a good sized photo, pretty close up from my head to about my knees. I attached this photo of J.Lo so you can see how close up, it is about the same distance. I blurred out my face from about my eyebrows to my upper lip.
