My dating pics
The enjoyment of dating only happens when you've widdled the four potential mates down to one. I feel pathetic just telling my girlfriends I'm either “Bumbling” or have a “Bumble date” because I can't help but think back to “Gladiator” and what Russell Crowe would do in this situation. I recently wrote about how I trolled my Tinder matches with lyrics from Adele's “Hello.” It was fun. I've also written about how sucky Tinder is; how it's basically one giant swimming pool of floating bandaids. And I don't know or meet a whole lot of people in my day-to-day life. The people I do meet (when I say “meet,” I mean gawk at from afar) leave my life quicker than they enter it because I'm too much of a pussy to actually walk up to somebody and say hello. So I need something else to help me; to aid in my finding of that “nobody's perfect” person. Even if it's just someone to hang the f*ck out with and get a beer. When I wrote my own profile, I painstakingly chose the photos that I felt best represented me, and I spent quite a bit of time crafting my profile. The photos are sometimes blurry or off center, or they’re trying to be sexy but, well, they’re just not. Here are eight cats who give these careless humans a run for their money when it comes to online dating pics. No idea, but I found the trend to be kind of funny after a while.Look at a dozen profile pics, and at least one will be taken while sitting in a car. Cats would also hop onto the car-pic bandwagon, although theirs would be taken inside a carrier. People actually use some blurry-a** selfie as their primary profile pic, and they think, “This is is one that’s gonna reel in my true love.” They have to think that, because why else would they use it?There’s definitely something to be said about the modern technology intervening in our love lives.
Posting photos on your online dating profile can feel agonizing, especially for women and most especially for women who are dating later in life. Selector .selector_input_interaction .selector_input.

The figuring out of who you can actually give your real number to (because, in your head, you're fast-forwarding eight months and wondering if you're inevitably going to have to block this person) is awful and somewhat similar to listening to country music — which is the worst. And there are all kinds of men who are attracted to all kinds of women. Here’s another thing: Both women and men post photos that are outdated, have them hiding behind sunglasses or are too dark to really see.Last year, I spent several months wading through the online dating pool.
