It's just harmless projection. "I like to look at scantily-clad female bodies therefore women like to look at scantily-clad male bodies. I'll show them mine and it will attract them."

I'll bet on harmless/clueless.
And brainless.

What's with these men that have posted bare-chested, almost homo-erotic pictures of themselves but are looking for women? It seems kind of creepy but maybe I'm being naive? Are they trying to market themselves as sexy?
As somebody else mentioned it, it's the same for women.

On the actual site where I'm, there's plenty of them and I find it a bit scary that, with such "sexy" pictures, they will only have the attention of superficial men.

A few profiles had some interest for me, but as they put such pictures I just moved away....

I'm perhaps a bit naive too....

Exactly. These "tease" pictures seem to suggest they are looking for sexual relations only and aren't interested in real relationships, even if it says something else in their profile.

It would produce the next Wagbo, known as... Olytrand-Geneva. Such a thing can never be allowed to come to pass.

Re: Best Dating Websites

Well, I'm stopping my experiment with dating websites for awhile. It was interesting but also a bit scary. Since I didn't post my picture, I only had a few contacts, even though I did make an effort to contact others.

To sum up, it was fun, adventurous and I even met a nice man through it (though we are not dating). Because of this thread, I was also invited to an expat singles party which was a lot of fun.

If I get another free offer to use the website again for a month, I might consider making another effort. In the meantime, I'm going to stick to flirting in my region for awhile.

Thanks for all your feedback and input. It was all highly appreciated.

Re: Best Dating Websites

Nooooooooo, I know that I for one looked forward to your devilishly saucy updates like I look forward to a new series of Peep Show on Channel 4 every week. And now youre going to pull the plug? For shame olygirl, for shame.

Re: Best Dating Websites

Yes - also found the dating websites a bit scary.
You really have to be careful when assessing who you decide to meet.
Met some frogs, but was quite straight (and hopefully polite) about not seeing them again.

But....

....met two great guys who I am seeing in rotation and getting to know on a casual basis. May the best man win!!

Haha. I'm sure if I had posted a saucy picture of me on the website, I would have had a lot more interesting tidbits to tell.

However, I do have one lesson learned: this forum provided a haven of more "safe" contacts than the dating website.

If a man does that with you being one of two women... would you keep dating the man thinking "let the best woman win" ?

Re: Best Dating Websites

Yes.
If it's just the "getting to know you" stage, I think it's quite normal.

Why do we automatically think about sex when someone says that.

Valid point and I suppose in such a situation woman will call him shallow just stop dating him and spill around some bad words about him.

That is after claiming "they fell in love with you on first sight" to counter your protest that you guys were not exactly having a relationship but just seeing each other and evaluating.
