I'm on several online dating sites and one thing that is a major turn off for me is when guys have posted pictures of them with their arm around another girl. Most usually caption it to say "This is my friend, blah blah blah" or some even admit it's an ex. It especially bugs me if it's an exceptionally attractive girl, it makes me feel like I can't compete, so why even bother, right? I was talking to my roommate (who is male) about this, and he thinks I don't hold the popular opinion. He argued that it's actually a turn on or attractant for girls because they like to see that a guy has female friends because that means he's not some creeper. What do you guys think? Do you think it's tacky? Do you like it?
Tacky. Turn off and I'd probably just assume he was still in-love or already seeing someone. It'd make me turn and go the other direction NO DOUBT. I don't step on another woman's toes and so I would only think one thing: leave her man alone.
However, I don't date (in a relationship 6 years) and have never done online dating, but I personally would feel similar to you -- it would put me off make me run the other way. It's not cute or attractive.
Quite honestly, in my opinion, your male friend was totally off (on my personal feelings anyhow). I am the girl that would go for the type with little to no other females in their photos because it would say to me: he's really not a... guy who sleeps around or has multiple female partners? I'd be going for the "creeper" with no or few female photos!
LOL on second thought... maybe this is exactly why I have always been a "creep magnet" lol! kIDDING. Kidding.
