I have noticed a lot of women have pics that show thier children and or grandchildren. Unless you are trolling for a pedophile, stop it! A friend of an old g/f just found out her b/f was molesting her daughter, they met on the internet and yes, you guessed it she had shown pics of her and her daughter posted on a dating site. If that isn't clear, I appologize but it is hard not to use names AND make it clear.

After much thought, I would like to put this discussion to bed. Spunky your attempted apology is accepted. Ride safe. Let us all live as if what we do to others, is actually being done to ourselves.

Well Spunky, you took a big step and that counts for a lot. I hope the two of you can work things through. Remember though, you men fix things by just going at it, you guys don't think about being gentle (most of the time). I don't know what was said between the two of you but if it was your delivery, well, we are women, we are not carbs, clutches, etc. I cannot speak for Teach but I know if you were trying to give me that advice I would like it wrapped in 10 layers of goose down because I HATE getting my pic taken. Ok, as Bkrbab said, you stepped up. That is a good start.

Spunky, way to step up. Now that we've got the BK stuff done--can we all tackle world peace?

I dont post my kids pics, not becuz of pedophiles, hell they can just read my profile and see that I have children..I dont post their pics becuz I dont think they need their faces on the internet. But no one ever meets my kids for a long time, and no one is ever around them alone.

Vicious...damn...just tryin to give a word to the wise. I am an ex-professional photographer and I wasn't disparraging anyones looks, I was trying to point out that some angles shouldn't be used to photograph some people, such as getting up close to a wide angle lens (such as the ones on most point and shoot cameras) will make your face look fat even if you aren't fat in the face! ...meerly suggestions, obviosly taken the wrong way and by the way, Sorry....I certianly never meant to hurt anyones feelings.

Quoted from "IDEAL PROFILE PIC SET" blog Sept. 4th: The REAL REASON to show certain piks, Guys, are simple! Guys are looking at piks to see if you meet thier own visual miniumum standard. To see if you are exceedingly old, ugly, fat or just plain scary or some combination that might be just too much for that one person. Way, if you are all about the "visual", then I see a HUGE problem!!! This must be what you are seeking?

Well, here we go back to two things that I believe in. Be nicer than you need to be and MEN don't attack women!!! Spunky, the smart thing to do here is to take responsibility, own up to it. Apologize to the lady, and she is a lady and be a stand up man about it. Not like the cowards I have dealt with recently. And hopefully it will be sincere, knowing the pain you caused. Because decent people do not like to cause pain. I would hope you will be a decent person about this. Owning up to our wrongs goes a long way.

And do you wonder why HE IS SINGLE? HA!!! Could be his winning ways with women. And yes, He should look in the mirror,.. sort of the Pillsbury Dough Boy does old age. Dust lightly with white flour and roll in gray cat hair.

Caligirl, I think your pics are great--don't change a thing. They're fun and say a lot about how you look at the world. I don't know Spunky but I do remember how hurt "she" was and that's never good. Posting kid pics isn't the best idea--we have enough to do to keep OURSELVES safe from the weirdos of the world. But nice people don't always think about that--just isn't the way they process (thank goodness). I'm getting a chuckle out of the discussion about standards in general. I've heard guys who want perfect bods and young enough to be their daughters. Then you look at THEM and they haven't seen a gym door since high school!! At least THOSE are making their character, or lack thereof, well-advertised.

Belly in the boat. if we are talking about the same one. hasn't several women posted warnings about this man. he is also one who will bleed your finances dry. Agree. No children. They might be your pride and joy but many out there purposely trawl sites looking for single female parents. The world is full of scumbags. And Yes. They all go to church and are even leaders and elders. Junie

HD, personal preference I guess. NOSKOOL, I see you are on a roll this AM. I have nothing against bellies, but good God leave something to the imagination. lol If you post a blog slamming women for their pictures, I would think you would practice what you preach.

Sher and T, after reading your comments, I clicked on his profile and low and behold. I remember him very well! About a year a go he posted a blog slamming women on here about their pictures. How do I remember him so well? It is the picture of the belly in the boat and how I ws appalled that he could belittle women for our pictures, when we have to look at this? Reminds of some of the guys I see here riding around on their bikes with no shirts and their bellies hanging over the gas tanks. All I can do is laugh and think to myself, "please go home and cover that sh** up".

Ok Sher, I don't know the whole story. I only know what she posted. And what he posted. No, you almost never get irate. I will leave it to you. I just had this impression of men making the point like some tend to do, like bulls, you know, driving it home, no thought about how harsh it can be. But if there was more to it. Like I said, I will stand back. I hope it gets resolved the right way.

Well Spunky, obviously your intentions were good. Apparently your delivery was harsh and hopefully you can speak to the lady in question about that. She was quite hurt. There is no need to hurt someone in trying to help them and you never struck me as the type of man that would cause harm. But really, how different is it from bumping into someone in in a store or swap meet when you have the kids with you? Most mothers and grandmothers are fiercely protective. Hell I don't have children and I am fiercely protective of my students and any other children. I am not implying that your friend was not. Please know that. Tragically, these people do find a way in at times. But I agree with Charmz on this. And a mother's instincts to protect are probably the strongest instincts in nature.

So your the jerk making others feel bad about their profile.. Next time you dont want to respond to a wink keep your negative comments to yourself .. Your no prize yourself and hurting someones feelings is just down right mean.. I have met the wonderful lady you dissed and she has more class in her little finger than you will ever have...

My Grandson is on my profile and I personally don't worry about this. The boyfriend would never be in a position of being alone with my Grandson to begin with. That goes without saying whether it is someone off a dating site or not. If he is put in my care and my responsibility, then my eyes are always on this child.
