It appears that is the case! I have several Internet accounts, and many times when I sign onto them, there is an ad for a singles service; there are a lot of ads for those services on TV, too.
The thing I always notice right off, is most of the “singles” they show on the ads are young. Now that stands to reason, because most single folks probably are young—younger than me, anyway—although, I see ads for sites that cater to the older set, too.
But no matter the age group, all the ads have one thing in common: the people in them are all good looking. What’s up with that? At the risk of being un-politically correct; ugly folks are single too… aren’t they? Are there separate sites for them?
You hear all the time about people who put out-dated pictures of themselves on the sites, as well as lying about their habits, income, etc. But I don’t see how that can work, because one look and the babe or hunk you’ve enticed into a date is outta there!
The picture thing is kind of prevalent on Facebook, too. Most people don’t post a current pic, because if they’re like me, they just aren’t sure their FB friends can handle the truth. That’s why I tend to use pictures of me when I was a kid, or most the time the duck. I bet lots of my FB friends wonder what the deal is with my duck. Ask me, why don’t ya? I dare ya!
The last person to ask me about my duck was my youngest grandson, Nathan. Check with him before you ask. It might save you some time and aggravation. Well… I don’t know that aggravation is the right word.
Any way, if you’re single and ugly, let me know how you handle the picture thing. Does the site reject it? Do they airbrush it? Do you give them an old picture—of somebody else? Would they accept one of a duck?
Inquiring minds want to know!
