Ok so we notice very often that couples tend to add an avatar of the lady only and media of just the lady, we do have a rule in place that if you are a couple we need to see a photo of you both, I think this is fair. So why is it that you look at an album and it's all of the lady and may be that one obscured photo of the man in the relationship?
If you are a couple wanting to meet as a couple then surely we need to see both?
It's hard to be creative together but I honestly believe as a couple we make an effort.
So My question is after that rambling.. Why?

I have often wondered why it's usually the woman who's pic gets used... Not always sure who you're talking to and I agree, it's a bit one-sided and not ideal...

But

Does that mean there should be a rule about it?

People's avatars are their own business, surely.

Not saying one way is better than t'other - just think before you legislate.

Avatars are up to you as long as it's clean and of yourself, as a couple we do try to throw a mix in, If we were to meet a couple then I personally want to see pics of them both. I also see the other side where women sell it, I don't quite get it but understand where people come from. I just think no matter what you look like or if it's the down below area you worry about as guys and think that's all you have to offer then that's crazy, there are some amazing photos here of guys (yours included) Just be a little creative, even if both heads are chopped off :D If you know what I mean :whistle:

I don't know why maybe men like taking photos of their girlfriends more than ladies like taking them of their boyfriends, I'lI admit though to liking photos of couples looking happy being together.

Put just a teeeny bit of effort into your avatar (or not) - it will identify the quality of your character immediately ;)

Just to clarify this though as it was missed; the avatar as mentioned is fine.. but as a couple - the first 3 x photos must include one of the couple together, as a couple = if a couple on here. That's what was meant. :)

We have far more pics of the Mrs but it's basic supply and demand her pics tend to get voted up, comments and likes, his pics maybe get one or two likes and that's it it's human nature to keep doing the thing that gets positive reactions and stopping doing the thing that doesn't

Yeah thats something we want to do nore of but we do tend to forget the camera once we get going but some are there
There is that but set up photo shoots when you have some private time, we do try to fit one in once a month, get different outfits and props and go from there (y)

Thinking we are doing something wrong here as i land home Friday at 7pm at best following a 4 hour drive then am back in the car at 4am Monday for another 4 hour drive back to sweaty sock land. Must have run a Nun over at some point i am guessing
