What Her Profile Pic Says about Her

"Take a closer look"

“Take a closer look”

Profile pictures aren’t quite the magic eight ball we’d all love for them to be. It would make life a lot easier if you could decipher what her profile picture is saying without having to talk to her. While there are exceptions for every rule, these general rules of thumb will help you parse out a profile pic so you know what you’re getting into when you send her that all important first message. Know the kind of woman you’re dealing with and you’ll know just how to get the cookie to crumble.

Boobs on Display

"She would like you to look into her eyes"

“She would like you to look into her eyes”

When a woman really wants you to look at her rack in her profile pic, go ahead and get an eyeful. She’s the one who put that out there for you to see. A lot of men assume that a boob-filled profile picture is a sure sign that she wants casual sex. What it actually means is that she wants attention. She might be up for something casual and she might not, but there’s no way that you’re going to know which just by looking at her profile picture. You should message her, but proceed with caution.

Formal Wear

Women break out the slinky black dress paired with an elegant bun when they want to prove what a catch they are. She’s sexy as hell in that dress and yet she’s still clearly a lady. When a woman wants to impress she pulls out a profile picture like this. She’s clearly aiming for the big leagues, and probably isn’t looking for anything casual. She might not be ready to get married, but she wants a relationship where that could be in the cards a few years down the line. If you’re not that kind of person and you don’t think you will be, let down women in formal wear easily.

Something Slinky

"Of course, she is looking for attention, duh!"

“Of course, she is looking for attention, duh!”

Of course, sometimes there’s no string of pearls or elegant bun to make something go from slinky and formal to just plain sexy. If she’s in lingerie in her profile, she wants attention, she wants compliments, and she’s already dressed for sex. If you’re just looking for something fun for tonight, that’s fine; she’s going to be a good bet, though you might want to message her a couple weeks in advance. Women who pose like that on an adult dating website are going to have a really packed schedule.

A Facebook like Pic


If her profile picture is something nice and wholesome enough that she could use it on Facebook, avoid her. She’s probably looking for something more permanent, like the formal wear women, but she also doesn’t know how dating site culture works. It’s not just about one thing, it’s about a lot of things, and if she thinks it’s like any other social media site but she gets hit on, that’s going to be a problem. Simply put, you don’t have the time or the energy to deal with newbs. When she’s wised up and picked what kind of woman she wants to be then you can make time for her.
