Do you get more replies on mails on RJ when you have a clear facepic on your profile?

    Are you tended to respond to some1 with a clear facepic more than to some1 who just has bodyshots. Even though they are both verified?

    Anyone noticed any difference in getting mails when they put a facepic of themselves online? Only thing thats stopping me from doing it is that im not out..

    Probably helps, but I've had a facepic for the most part and a not unsubstantial percentage of guys simply do not respond to emails. Generally speaking the ones who do I have chatted with in the Forums, or left a photo comment on their profile.

    As a result I'm a lot less likely these days to initiate conversations via email.

    Then again I'm not verified so my experience may not be typical of others.

    Guys send emails to other guys they find attractive/hot/interesting etc. Hot/attractive/interesting is a multi-step configuration. A guy not in super great shape could have 40 face pictures of him smiling, looking confident, and get several emails. Another guy could have a total of 2 torso pics in his entire profile and get several emails. A guy could have 10 torso shots, no face pic, and get more emails than the first two. A guy could have one face pic and 1 nice torso pic and get more emails than all the previous ones. The fuller the package (lol) the bigger the response.

    I don't normally respond to headless profiles. "No photo" guys are ignored completely and a headless guy doesn't get much more attention.

    It depends on what you're showing in your pics and what you say in the email you've sent them (since you said replies to mail). I reply to every message I get since I think that's polite. Some responses might be pretty short but it depends on what the message said and how interesting it was.

    If you're talking about people initiating contact with you, I bet it depends on how handsome your face is versus how ripped your body is. I'd guess it's the same with adult pics. If it looks good to someone, you'll get mail. Seems to me that if you want attention, the key is to have a profile picture that makes people want to know more about you.

    Note that fhaynie81 has now officially received an email. Welcome to Real Jock. And I agree with the comments to date. Even without a face pic publicly posted, I get plenty of messages, prompted by my forum postings, or the pix, or by someone who has actually read my profile!

    You automatically win my undying respect and appreciation; and will more than likely get comments on how cute you are. It's the nature of web profiles. Been like this since I can remember in 1998.

    That depends.

    NO reply if:
    - completely blank profile
    - no pictures whatsoever
    - message contains something simple like "hey there stud" or "what's going on?"

    WILL reply if:
    - has private pics only (hey we were all in the closet at some point ourselves)
    - member is verified
    - has a profile that's filled out at least to some decent extent

    That's because you're so hot that you intimidate people.

    Yes, strikingly so.

    I`ve noticed since putting a face picture up on my profile I get a lot more attention, viewings, messages, etc.; good and bad.

    I respond to all messages from other RJ members regardless of any pictures they have out of politeness, first and foremost, but profiles with face pictures do make a greater impression on me. A guy with a face picture is more likely to get an approach from me and a fuller response. I take guys at face value to begin with. Our senses are dominated by sight and the face is crucial to our responses to other people.

    How other guys react is individual to them, and will vary, but that`s my thoughts.

    I think most guys on here are looking at the muscles, aren't they? The nicer the body the more emails I would think a guy would get. Although I get quite a few emails... a lot are from guys who actually read my profile and compliment me on my progress post-recovery icon_smile.gif
