Why do women put fake pictures up on their profiles here?

Like does it give them a confidence boost knowing a guy talks to them? I don't get it. I know some women on here are actually genuine which is good but a lot of them with profile pictures are fake. What do people get out of this? It's pointless.
Also, before you hate this has happened quite a lot in the how do i look section and actually on some profiles.

  • Why? Because this is an anonymous site. And it's not some dating site where everyone has pictures of themselves.
    As far as using fake pictures for "how do I look" questions, they're just trolls.

    • Yeah, but what's the point? it's not going to achieve anything in their actual life.

    • Probably because they think they will never get as much attention using their real pics so they wanna use a more attractive persons pics to get people interested in talking to them. Lol I watch a lot of catfish haha

    • True, good point and I watched like 1 or 2 episodes. I've watched the movie though lol.

  • It's supposed to be anonymous. I just used one of my favorite pic.

    • I'm talking about claiming it's them and yeah pictures like yours i can understand.

    • I don't know why people do that. Why steal some ones pictures. There probably insecure about there looks

  • Well i think the reason most people dont use their real picture is in order to protect their identity. Its not about being fake or getting guys, its just about not wanting a real picture of yourself up on a website like this

    • They actually say its them though lol

  • It's not just girls, guys do that too. But i'd still say a good number of people on jere with their profile pictures up aren't catfishes.

  • If I should give a logic reason, perhaps it's desperate people seeking to boost their self worth by any means they can think of?

  • Anyone gets a confidence boost when someone talks to them. And putting fake pictures is just a weapon to use in order to achieve a goal. That's about it.

  • Because they think they're not pretty enough to just use their own. Or, they think people will come after them if they have their real pic.

  • Cause they can and its not a dating site so they can present themselves here however way they want. Maybe they just want to look at a beautiful person each time they log in.

    • No they claim its actually them

    • Well they're just catfishes. How can you tell whether they're lying or not?

    • search the url of the image and you can see where the photo is from.

  • Because they sometimes don't see what we see

    • They can't see that they put a picture of a stranger up?

    • They don't see how beautiful they are and end up doing stuff like this

  • I am actaully a snorlax

    And this is a forum not a website like faceboon or twitter so who cares?
