I wish the men posting their pictures would post recent ones. I recently had been chatting with a man and his pictures were nowhere near what he looked like now. Very misleading. Also I've had one that has refused or keeps putting me off on giving me a picture. His original picture is one that would make a woman drool and when I asked for any other picture of him he has put me off. I figure the original one isn't him in the first place.
I noticed a lot of men don't post pictures. In my age group, I just write it off to a lot of men going through mid life crisis and quite likely married. It's a personal choice for me, but I wouldn't be interested in someone who did not post their picture. It has nothing to do with me being interested in their looks first and foremost...it has everything to do with me not wanting to find myself involved with a married man.
I have to agree with jjiggl. If a guy winks at me, whether or not he has a picture posted isn't a factor in my response. I check out his profile; and if I like what I read, then I'll respond back. I've actually been talking for several months to two guys who winked at me without pics, but sent me pics after we started to communicate. Both are great guys...intelligent, articulate, funny, sensitive...which makes them attractive in my book.
Yes, a pretty face is nice to look at...but pretty people can be very ugly inside. AND the other thing to keep in mind is that many scammers use pictures of great-looking guys to lure us in.

It seems that there are quite a few on this site, both male and female who don't post pics. I am not sure of the reason, but I never let it stop me from responding to a wink, (when I was interested in getting them, that is). Not seeing a pic didn't bother me because I was intrigued by getting to know someone. I wanted to let their words influence my decision on whether or not I wanted to continue corresponding with them. I don't think that I am shallow, but I am being realistic in thinking that looks can and do influence how we respond to people on dating sites.
Anyway, that is just my take on the subject of members that sign up and not post a picture.
Hi Skin Deep. I am new here, but I have to agree with you...there seem to be alot of men on here with no photo.This is the main reason I have not been in a hurry to post a photo of myself. Makes me think they've something to hide.
