These are women who aren’t comfortable with letting you see how the rest of their bodies look.
It is common in online dating.
Yes, a lot of them do it because they are overweight or all-out obese.
A few others do it to be modest.
They are in good physical shape but they aren’t about flaunting it on a dating site.
You are clearly frustrated about constantly coming across dating profiles with pics of women who are only giving you close-ups of their faces or shooting themselves at such weird angles that you can’t make out what their shape is truly like.
Yes, in most circumstances, that is trickery.
They don’t want to show their faces at a good distance or their full bodies so as not to turn off guys who aren’t into bigger women.
This is a practice that has been prevalent on online dating sites for a long time.
Using online dating as an avenue to meet a potential match has made a lot of people very superficial in what they are looking for.
It is akin to using a magazine brochure to place an order.
In this case, an order for the perfect mate.
People are looking for a mate with the perfect size, height, ethnicity, complexion, etc.
Online dating has spoiled people into thinking that they can order exactly what they want in a person.
This usually means that people start having an unrealistic notion of what their perfect person should look like.
Meeting someone through traditional real life channels such as work, friends or family is different.
In those situations, flaws aren’t as egregious.
People are able to overlook imperfections.
They get to experience that person in real life and are privy to that person’s charm, mannerisms and energy.
This can go a long way in making that person desirable.
Yet, that person isn’t perfect.
They aren’t the perfect size or height.
But, they are intriguing.
Soon, the two are going out on dates and even end up getting married.
This process is not the same on an online dating site.
As human beings, we are now in the habit of looking at online dating as we would a brochure.
We think about our perfect mate and forget that so many of these new parameters wouldn’t have been so prevalent if we were to meet someone through the traditional channels.
As sick as you are of seeing these women hiding their bodies in all of their dating profile pics, you have most likely exaggerated your own standards in a potential mate as a result of being on an online dating site.
Try to assess those standards and understand that you will have a much better chance at finding a match if you are more realistic.
If you never attracted a 10 in real life, you are not going to attract a 10 on an online dating site.
Online dating may initially seem like the answer to providing you with the most perfect mate, but in the end, it is really just a reflection of what we are able to attract in real life.
It is understandable that you are sick of these women who only post close-ups of their faces and shoot pics at weird angles, but there is a good chance that they are fully aware of the superficial expectation that comes with online dating.
They have chosen to protect themselves from that cynical eye by using trickery in their pics to hide their imperfections.
This doesn’t excuse their behavior.
But, you would do yourself a favor to reflect on what your expectations are.
Are they too lofty?
Has online dating bedazzled you into thinking that you can find the perfect mate who has no egregious flaws?
If that is the case, temper those expectations.
Success in online dating only comes when you are realistic about the type of person that you can actually attract.
