I Wonder Why Guys Have Profile Pics Of Girls

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 961 People

    That Was My First Choice

      I started using the avatar of a girl.  But all the other info was me.  My thinking was well that's the type of person I'm looking to make friends with. Then I found it really annoying when I was looking for friends and kept finding that the avatars of pretty girls were owned...

    There Are Reasons

    In my case, I am a man who is into groups of people who like to show our wives. So I know they are curious about what does my wife looks like, before asking to be friends to see more pictures I post.

    Fake Or Fraud?

    There are clearly guys using their wives photos (probably without their permission) but worse are all the fake profiles of women. These fakes or frauds are using pictures of their Ex's or stolen images. Scary and sick. I find myself unfriending and blocking several people a day...

    I Don't Really Get It

    I understand why closeted trannies have pictures of girls... They don't have any of their own and want to post a fantasy pic. And that's fine with me but it should say somewhere on the profile that it is a fantasy pic and that they have fantasies about being cross dressed. But in...

    Wtf?

    In the beginning I just clicked on the thumbnail pic of a seemingly nice girl. More often than not, the profile of a 66 year old man is opened?Do they all want to be a girl? It is just an unnerving nuisance.

    Men With Female Profiles

    I believe that it is misrepresentation and cannot understand the logic behind it! I think it should be banned.It is a waste of my time trying to find lady friends. We should boycott these people!

    My Experience Back When Yahoo Chat Rooms Ruled!

    I didn't realize this was much of a popular thing among men and their profiles. But I might have some reasons behind why they do so; not that it's really a disturbing thing to worry about.Back when Yahoo chat rooms/messenger was THE thing to do sometime around 2003 or so...

    Maybe Because

    Girls just look better than we do and he gets more attention from. Others when they see. A good looking girl. Or maybe they are just trying to let others know wat thay are into (what turns them on) . I'm trying to upload my pix but I can't get it to work it's a cool animated pix...

    It Is A Little Strange

    Yeah, it makes one wonder.  I don't mind too much, as long as the guy indicates he is a male member of EP in his profile; but it does seem like a misrepresentation.  I think Pixelita said the same thing.There must be some reason guys to it; I wonder what the motivation is.

    Why?

    I've often wondered this...Can you possibly let me know why you have a picture of a girl as your profile picture? Surely it's not to attract other guys to your profile? Although I'm pretty sure it does. Well if you guys could possibly tell me it would be much appreciated

    To Give The Illusion

    I think guys use pictures of women either because they are showing you an example of their fantasy lady, or they are trying to mislead you into believing they happen to be a woman. I just know that it ALWAYS makes me do a double take thinking I missed some hot chic's profile.
