Dating rules in your forties
That they’ve been duped in the past and women trick them with angles and lighting. I’m sure I’m not the only woman that feels this way! I wince when they ask me to send a “body shot.” I hate to think a date rides on how my body looks from this or that angle.
I’m also uncomfortable with strangers I’ve never met having a stash of my photos. Most guys aren’t photo-collecting stalkers; they’re men who don’t want to show up on another date with someone who is 25lbs heavier than advertised. In fact, it sounds like you very much understand how the world works – you just don’t want to accept it.
But the pattern is that they don’t stop demanding more.
This has led me to stop talking to some guys who may have been a great potential. Not because of issues with my image, but because they’ve seen other photos and I hate to think a date rides on how my body looks from this or that angle.

I understand they don’t want to be fooled so I send another one or two.You can do this nicely, and you should explain your reasoning clearly, but you should still break up with him. I have a particular question about sending pictures to potential dates.For better or worse, men will not make commitments that aren't required of them. If he really wants you, he will try to get you back; but if he doesn't, remember: during your most eligible years, you are better off being back on the market than tied up in a dead-end relationship.If he isn't taking things to the next level when you think it is appropriate, break up with him.
