The shirtless pictures are everywhere. Seems like everyone wants to take their shirts off these days...

 

Ladies, whenever you click on a man's profile and view his photo album, and you see him just standing there with no shirt on, what kind of thoughts go through your head? Are you instantly turned off by seeing the man with his bare chest exposed, or do you happen to like it?

 

Are you okay with seeing pictures of men in their bathrooms taking pictures of themselves with no shirt on, or would you rather have something left to the imagination?

 

Or maybe you prefer to see men's shirtless pictures because you're a bit curious to know what a guy's physique looks like before you begin talking to him? Or do you find the shirtless pictures to be downright distasteful?

 

And does it make you wonder if a man with a photo album full of shirtless pictures has any substance to himself, beyond the shirtless pictures? Does it send you a signal that the only thing that this man probably has to offer a woman is his body - and his bare chest?

 

Any thoughts on this topic?

On that subject, there are some man that I would not even want a face pic in my inbox of and then there are some men that I just shake my head at when I get their pic and then there are some men that just know how to take a pic without making it look tacky, trite or desperate. 

 

I enjoy physical fitness and therefore I would like my guy to show some kind of inclination that he values his himself, his health and his body. On a side note, you did your pics very tastefully!

 

At the end of the day, having a good body requires a ton of work, discipline and dedication.  If you got it, show it off.  Who cares!  It's like driving a Lamborghini, don't cover it up.  Show it off and take care of it.  Eventually, everything has an expiration date.

I literally received one the other day and just sat there with my head down, blank look on my face, glaring at the screen. It took me well over an hour to reply because I was unsure what to say...sort of 😉

I had words, no doubt. The energy that bubbles over from within like a volcano spews forth its fiery lava was being redirected to my fingers. I was typing away; the swiftest fingers in the land. 

 

I suppose the above did not leave anything to the imagination. Though it is important to be attracted to who ever you are dealing with, I do not care for them from a stranger. I want you to save that, reveal your heart to me & allow your body to be exposed organically.

I do however, love receiving pictures like that from a man I'm with. If I'm with someone, unexpected pictures of each other randomly are fun. What's better than getting a pic of your lady in the middle of your work day, rather a sweet selfie or a little exposure to get the blood flowing, just certainly not with a stranger or someone I hardly know.

I would pass on the profile as well.



I think such pictures are associated with being low-class.

Quoting Weol2016:

If he want to share a shirtless picture, go for it. He might be proud of his body. If I really wanted to know, I would ask him about the picture? Who am I to judge...? I will say in context of posting he shouldn't be a show-off. 



First you say "who am I to judge," but then you say "he shouldn't be a show-off." But in order to determine if he is or isn't a show-off, aren't you indeed judging him?

Hi everyone, when I see a man on a dating site and his profile pic is himself without a shirt or wearing a wife-beater in my opinion says "tacky".  Again my opinion he is cocky and arrogant and all he is interested in is sex.

Men in general, I think, think they are sexy no matter what the evidence is in the mirror. They remind me of little boys showing off. I see confidence. I've never thought 'desperate'. It usually makes me laugh and feel closer to the person as I know something about them they didn't intend to 'show'. And, a sexy, muscular black man is a turn on. I say men, do whatever you feel but some of you should definately keep your shirts on. Would you want to see a woman with an large exposed belly? Well, yes, some of you would.

Quoting Lovely2099:

I think men that have profile pictures where they are shirtless is non-verbal communication of desperation!!  I imagine their mindset is "Well, this is what I have got, let me show you."  instead of what they might have to offer intellectually or personality wise.  I also think shirtless selfies sends a non-verbal message that they may be more interested in a sexual relationship more than anything.  Substance please!!!



Well said Lovely, well said.

You're right. Yesterday I had my big level-set and while I'm not happy, I'm moving forward. It doesn't mean I've given into the madness. I'm just dusting off my shoulders and keeping it moving. Well at least that is my official response for today.

I always wonder about the poster's intent when I see shirtless pictures. Why do you feel the need to send me a picture of yourself unclothed? Is it supposed to be sexually arousing? Uhm you haven't even met me yet. And more importantly why do you have a picture of yourself shirtless? Who just walks around with these in their phone? Seems like some of that Craigslist hook-up "ish" that ends up in the newspaper. Has this just become the norm and I need to level-set?

Yes, I think this has become the norm these days. I think what you've just described is what the online dating experience has become for so many people.

As a man myself, I agree with the ladies. Its tacky... Its like they are scraping the bottom of the barrell for attention.. You gotta take your shirt off in a pic?? Really??? I do not even like to do that at the lake, beach or waterpark....



For some of these guys, even their main profile picture is a shirtless selfie. So much for leaving something to the imagination. But I guess if that's all one has to offer, then that's all that he has to offer.

Quoting jzbl06:

If I see a man without his shirt on in a photo, I think that the man could be shallow. My question to the men that expose themselves on photos would be this: Are you truly here to find love or friendship or are you here to find your next one night stand? My next question would be, what if roles were revesed. If I was on here revealing myself to you would you take me serious or would I be something to bed? Now do not get me wrong, I do like nice bodies and I do not believe every guy that takes off his shirt wants something extra, however image is eveything and if that is all they have to offer, I will pass their profile.



You made a lot of good points. I think it's a combination of all the things that you said.

Quoting Greeneyed_Love:

Definitely tacky. And for me a real turn off. That said, if their ONLY photo is one that is shirtless that's tacky. But if they have several photos and only one is shirtless it's less of a big deal to me. 

I don't want to be attracted to a man because he has a tight 6-pack going on, or bulging muscles. To me looks are of course important, but we're all attracted to different looks. I'd rather have a nice looking guy than one that's drop-dead gorgeous but when he opens his mouth to speak he sounds ignorant or uneducated, crass and a bit too forward before we've even had a chance to communicate a little it's the worst! Hope that helps answer your question! :)



Yes, it does help answer my question. Very nicely stated.
