I would have thought that anyone who has access to the internet and is able to compose enough of a string of letters to create a username has received enough education to intrinsically understand what might be appropriate on a dating site, but apparently that is not true.
But don't take my word for it, see for yourself:
1. Shirtless = pedophile/rapist/serial killer
2. The Player:
4. R. Kelly:
5. Great photo, if I could only tell what he actually looked like:
6. Looking for Girlfriend to Visit Me in the Hospital:
7. Looking for Girlfriend to Shovel Buffalo Manure:
(And "ZgByAGUAZQAgAHIAbwBhAG0..." ...suddenly everything is so much more clear.)
So let's guess. Is he conveying an undying love for bison burgers? That he needs help maintaining his prairie (which, I might add, is obviously nowhere near the metropolitan area in which I live)? Is he indicating, through some magic, secret code, that he was a buffalo in a past life? Is it an inside fraternity joke?
I give zero fucks about landscape photos. I want to see what he looks like, not the herd of buffalo that will trample me to my death on our first weekend away together.
8. The Mystery Man:
9. Let me just glove up a sec...
10. Would it kill you to smile?
A sourpuss face is not going to land dates. That is not a "sexy" frown. Guys don't have to grin like a clown in each photo but the MAIN profile pic should be one where we can tell you have fun sometimes.
11. Bonus profane example:
I can't post a photo for this so am just including the link. HOLY FUCK is this NSFW. It likely will disappear soon so click while you can. Warning: dudes may be traumatized:
Yes, I am looking for genitals to shave. Not an actual person, just genitals. How compelling, let me jump right on that.
