So... If you had to choose a partner by one of these methods, which one would you opt for?
- Pictures. You get 10 pictures from each person. You can see their face clearly in most of them. You can see their body well in some (There is also a nude included). You can see how tall they are. Most pictures are taken of their personal everyday life (so you might be able to see friends, hobbies). Their age is mentioned. The pics are not photoshopped.
- Profile descriptions. You get a full description of their looks, their likes, their jobs, income, a personal message of about 500 words, if they want kids, political/religious views, pretty much anything that could be asked on a first date. All filled in answers are double checked and verified.
There are 100 people to choose from. All of them are interested in you (they saw pictures AND your profile description).

For starters, them being interested in me doesn't tell me shit about them. I've found plenty of girls interesting, but would we be a good match? probably not. plus they could be interested in me for a very specific reason, how am i to know what they have honed in on, maybe its something that i dont consider all that important?
Also, are the photos professionally done, or fully candid? eg the no make up 11pm snack run to the supermarket during study week, or a perfectly timed and lit 'stetch' at the park in work out clothes and full make up?
Personally i think you can tell very little from photos. makeup might as well be photoshop in the hands of some women, its amazing what that stuff can do. but what a photo won't tell you is if they intelligent, articulate, and can actually hold up a good conversation, or are an actual interesting, person themselves. These aren't things that will change. Stupid is for life.
Yes. if all i want to do is fuck them, the photos are fine, but a partner. Nope. Need to 'converse' with them first, and assuming their profile is written by them, then its their 'opening line'.
that said, 500 words ain't shit. To put in perspective there are 154 words in the description you wrote. Maybe if you pad that out to 1000 words with photos, or seeings there are no photos, 1500 words to accomodate a decent description of themselves?0
