I've noticed that it's mostly the guys that use fake profile pictures and they tend to be pictures of a buff/fit guy. What do they hope to gain from that?

Sadly, this site and the internet itself attracts a certain introverted cateory of people who make up the majority of its users. Many of whom, like creating their own internet persona of something they aspire to be. Others will be using it to try and get attention while a few will just do it to troll.
I personally don't have any photos on my profile in case someone I know could recognise me.1
