On online dating sites, why do some men choose to be represented by a picture taken in a bathroom?


Most of the time the pictures are not very flattering, but the context makes them downright repulsive. If you are a man, could you shed some light on the phenomenon? If you are a woman, could you share your thoughts about how "impressed" you are with such photos? In general, what do you think about those type of photos? Do they do "the job", are they attractive, distractive, repulsive or maybe who cares?

    Yes, I agree, Martie, I find them - mmm - unappealing. What surprises me the most is the NUMBER of those pictures floating around. It is not just one or two men, there just too many of them.

    I agree that those men lack class. Once I met a man in a social setting and he looked acceptable. Later I saw his picture in front of the bathroom mirror so full of himself! - I lost all respect.

    Apparently (I did not know this), it goes for both men and women. Bathrooms are usually shabby just like their inhabitants. And I have been told that it is women who are more indiscreet - they show (almost) everything.
