    While all my pics are recent (majority from 2009), I have found some that are identified by date (even showing members as children) can be interesting.

    I plan to put one on here with my registered quarter horse from about 2000 before long, but it will be labeled and very clear when it was taken.

    One of our well known members, Surreallife used to routinely have pics from his childhood. Jonathan was very good at doing that.... it provoked questions and made his profile more interesting to read.

    Now old pics ... without dates can lead to misinformation about what someone looks like right now. Thats bs... so I guess it depends on what you would like to share.

    Maybe because it's their page and they can do what they want?

    Why keep photo albums of your past?


    Now if your argument is "why are they only posting old pics that no longer represent how they really appear" -- I think we all know that answer...
    And maybe some post pics past and present to show a progression of their physcial lives.

    But really who cares?
    Why post pictures of your friends, last years halloween party, your bff, your dog, your cat, a headless torso (oh wait that's me icon_eek.gif )

    Can't we all just dress like women and go to school or work, not be bothered and just be?? icon_biggrin.gif

    Good question. i've often wondered about that myself. i don't think guys realize that it sometimes indicates how badly they've aged. i bet you if they did... they wouldn't.

    I'm kind of proud of the changes I made, so I posted one "before/after" photo. So what?

    Or, do you mean people that post photos from 10 years ago, pretending that it's what they look like now? If that's the case, I'd imagine it's the same reason people lie about their age.

    I like before and after pics too. It shows the progress you've made in your fitness. Also, it's fun to look at old hairstyles and clothes from the past. icon_lol.gif

    But yeah, I think posting old pics and presenting them as current is bad.

    One problem is that you don't see the date connotation unless you go all the way into 'photo comments'. That seems to be a fault of RJ, but a small fault.

    It's a bit rich coming from the original poster who has only one picture in his profile and one that looks like it was taken in the 1990s!

    As a gay man, you should have nothing against a little tail.

    Because I'm not here to hook up and I don't really care if you like the way I look. I actually look BETTER than my profile photo nowadays, but again, I don't care...

    I'm about to get deep here, but doesn't EVERY picture show what you looked like in the past?

    No, some of my pictures (but not all of them) will be taken in the next few months.

    depends how pics are balanced out.
    Current pics, combined with recent and some older add a little to the history related in the profile . So it can be entertaining.
    If it's only old pictures, well, it could mean anything. Maybe it's a 12 y.o.girl posting as her gandpa and hoping to access private pics of hot jocks.
    Plus as we age, we start getting confused. 20 years ago starts to feel like yesterday.

    I've often wondered that too.

    An ex of mine has a profile on one of these websites. Just his torso (clearly I could recognise him). We've even chatted online and his writing style is distinctly his.

    Problem is that he is 14 years older than his profile and about 40lbs heavier.

    Hmm....?
