I'm new to the online dating scene so I'd like to get some insight from you guys. Before I ran my own business when I used to have things like free time and a life competitive bodybuilding was one of my hobbies. So I have a wide selection of pics where I'm totally shredded for competition.
As an experiment I decided to run my same profile with just a basic head shot vs a shirtless meat-head shot. Now I'm not a bad looking guy, I'm no Brad Pitt or maybe I didn't take the best head shot but I was surprised how staggeringly different the volume of emails and email responses I get with my meat-head pics vs my head shot.
I have read that guys should keep their shirt on in their profile pics but the results are not supporting that at all. Now I'm still in far better shape than most but since I don't have time to compete anymore I didn't want to use these shots because they aren't new.
But now I'm wondering if I should use every weapon in my arsenal and meat-head it up? I have to admit I'm a bit surprised women judge us so harshly by our profile pic...I thought we were supposed to be the shallow ones, lol!!!
What do you guy's think? At the moment I'm at the stage where I'm just experimenting and trying different things to get the hang of the online scene. I don't really care who writes me back, I'm just seeing what things I can do to generate interest...So far six pack abs have crushed my wittiest emails, and most ingenious profile which is kinda disappointing. But like I said I'm new to this...maybe my emails suck, LOL!!
Thanks for any feedback or insight.
