. Knowing what a person looks like doesn't tell you anything about their character.
Look at Ted Bundy. He looked like the kind of guy every Mom wants their daughter
to date. For those that don't know him, he was a serial killer. As they say, looks
are deceiving.

Can members attach photos to the private messages?
Where a member has no photo (due to work reasons) contacts you how else can they provide a photo except by private message. I prefer not to communicate with someone without a photo and say so.


Yes they can...but no one is obliged to.

Yes, sure many scammers provide photos, it does not mean they are authentic, do not be gullible! Even some profile photos may be fake, take caution!

I get many pics of young girls that don't seem right, so I just delete them and they go away

Hi Pats
That’s useful to know. I did suggest a photo be attached to a members pm as they said they could not have a profile photo due to work. They had invited me to ‘chat’ which I say in my profile I don’t do. No photo materialised. All v. strange and whilst I’m prepared to give the benefit of the doubt - a little warning bell rang.

One 'baby' would have been enough for me....er yuck. A man contacted me this week, I could see the photo he had was no doubt 'nicked' I led him on, usual thing he said (if it was a he?) I'm a vet in the US Army in Afghanistan ( yawn yawn, oh that's a new one ! ) photo of him with a dog. OOO said I, what sort of dog is that ? Ages till he replied with the news it was a Boxer..... It was a Weimaraner.... I reported him. He was blocked.
No doubt he will try to get back on with another nicked+pic.
Report them please. Blocking them from yourself keeps them on here.
The site is down on them quickly.
