I Wonder Why Guys Have Profile Pics Of Girls

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 929 People

    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

    Girls Just Look Better

    I'm going to spend time looking at my avatar, so it's just nicer if there's a hot chick on it.

    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.

    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...

    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.

    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...

    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.
