Default Are pics necessary?????

Okay people I need your opinions on this subject:
Is it really necessary for a person to view ones picture before they decide to talk to you?

I've been PM'd a few times requesting to view a picture of myself...granted I have shared with a few people here, there are a few that I chose not to share with...and because I refuse to share they assume that I am ashamed of the way I look and tell me..."you must be ugly then." I'm no beauty queen but I am not hideous either.

I even had a fella tell me, "hit me up with a pic so I can see if you're "worth" talking to." I couldn't believe what I had read!! I didn't even bother answering that PM.

I don't feel that I have to post my pics all over the site to get someone's approval...I want a person to enjoy conversating with me because they enjoy it, not because of what I look like.

There...that's my rant for the day...please give me your thoughts and views...Thanks.

that is why you don't pay attention to those stupid private messages and you concentrate more on having quality conversations on this board. People get a chance to know what you are about by reading what you have to say.

well, pics aren't necessary in my book. I have asked a few people after talking to them to see a pic of them. only because the suspense is nerve racking. I can compare it to receiving a gift, but you don't know whats in the box.Whether you're fine as hell or average. I won't base me talking to you by looks. But I'm naturally curious.

LOL ------- what a jerk, asking for your pic!!!

Men are very visual - and they seem to HAVE TO HAVE a picture..........

I can relate some very interesting tales on that - but alas, I'm gong to bed now - damn headache --------- I'll be back

Lol, thats a mess that someone said that to you.

Personally i really don't care about pictures, but i know others do. They want to know what the person they are chatting with looks like. Then theres others who just wanna see you lol...LAMES.

The people (males or females) who ask for a picture right off the bat, and without having any interaction with you via the boards or PMs are probably just looking for a potential hook-up. Soy is not a dating site, and it appears that the majority of regular posters aren't here for that purpose at all.

What does annoy me is if I have been interacting with someone and he asks for a pic, but isn't willing to share one with me. That seems suspicious.

And Tru, the person who wanted to see if you are "worth" chatting with is only worth your click on the "ignore" button.

I think those are only the kids who register on soy looking to get some cyber booty or something.
On the boards, where it matters, no one cares if you show your pic or not.

Ignore them.

I see no point of privately sending a picture though. If the whole board got together and made a "post a picture" thread just to see who is who, I can understand.

Cause of my username, people think I'm a chick. It's always a noob sending me a PM.

Those types should just stick to Soychicanogente.com and post their telephone numbers. I always wonder if people actually call them up.

What's SJ said?

Besides, I get turned on more on a girl's brain than their looks.

Most of the ones that send those pm's are just looking for some booty. There are some of the posters who have me wondering what they look like (males and females) but only because after reading their posts I have this image in my head of what they look like. All it is is curiosity.
