Oftentimes, you have the option on a dating site to choose whether you would like to be matched with accounts that have no pics. If you don’t like being matched with accounts that have no pics, you can easily opt not to.
Yes, there are people who choose to open accounts without pics. They have the fears that you laid out. They fear that coworkers or even a boss may see them. They even fear that family and friends may see them.
Sometimes, it’s even an introverted person or someone with social anxiety that doesn’t feel comfortable with showing their face on a dating site.
It does work for some people. Some of them do get matches and do get to chat with others and even go out on dates.
The pickings are slim though.
They don’t get anywhere near the kind of attention that they would get if they had an account with pics.
Some deem it worth it though.
They trade the likelihood that they receive less matches for the comfort of knowing that they aren’t putting themselves in a situation where they feel awkward. This is especially true for the ones who are socially awkward or anxious.
