Pictures of your pets? Seriously? You think someone will want to answer your ad because you’ve got pet pictures? I’m just not seeing the chain of logic here.

Why do people put up unflattering pictures of themselves? Especially when it’s two pictures, and the second one just looks busted. And I don’t mean to diminish the picture of the zaftig woman—kudos to her—but, really, if your head looks like a little peanut on top of your body, it’s not a good look. (Although, it’s better than the “my head is too big for my body” anorexic look, pioneered by Calista Flockhart around the Ally McBeal days. Incidentally, how did “Ally McBeal days” become an instantly recognizable period of time?)
