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?
That is a little disturbing. As a guy I cannot tell you why men do that. It's strange and probably why they are still single.
I suspect they simply lack class! When I was doing online dating there were lots of profile photos of women taken in front of a bathroom mirror holding up a cell phone. My guess is they were in the middle of setting up their online profile and decided to take a photo of them self. Maybe these people don't want their friends to know they are using online dating websites or they don't know how to ask a friend to take a photo of them (alone) without having to give them an explanation of some kind.
There is nothing flattering about a photo taken in a bathroom!
I honestly find those 'bathroom' pictures absolutely disgusting. While I was recently doing research on a dating site, of course with the secret agenda to find the man of my dreams - whom I have actually found - I've ignored all men with tendencies of exhibitionism. What kind of a woman would like to meet such a freak, exposing himself in such a disgusting way? There IS a time and a place for doing that - definitely not 24/7 on a dating site. But then, there are women doing the same thing. Fact is, it takes all kinds to make a world and every Jack has his Jill.
I am glad I am not a woman looking for a men on online dating sites. Why take a photo in the bathroom? Do they have nice bathrooms (i.e marbled heated floors and such ...)?
Strange but hey, it's men we're talking about.
Possibly it's the only place their wife or girlfriend won't catch them taking a picture for a dating site.
More likely they are just using the largest mirror they have and don't notice the background when they take the picture. It is very common for people to focus on the subject of a photograph and ignore the background.
It probably won't occur to most guys to use a timer on the camera and a tripod to take a picture against a blank wall. I am assuming that these guys are not using an I Phone to take and send the pictures. Hope that sheds a little light on the subject.
If they're taking a picture of themselves in the mirror, it's probably the only mirror they have. I'm sure they don't put much thought into it. If it's a shot of them posing over a toilet in a full plate of armor waving a halberd around or something, I can't help you. =-P
it is the inner emotion makes a person to present in that manner. how ever bath room looks elegant than the individual. it is perhaps advertisement of tiles/interior to impress consumers. it is one of the marketing secret. good hub.

Has anyone had any luck with the free dating site, Plenty of Fish? I tried it and so far I'm not impressed. It's not the site, it's the people on it. Too many fakes, liars, and psychopaths. I noticed that in my area, Port Angeles, WA, the male profile outnumber the female profiles at least 10:1....

Do you realize that you could meet your next wife/husband or next best friend when you simply say hello? Why are people so afraid to approach someone? If you get rejected then that's the other person's lost. If they decline your invitation to exchange information maybe they are...
