In your early years, you chose your life partner based on their looks and other unimportant attributes. Eventually these relationships end in broken hearts, divorces etc. You have now reached a point in life where you are now mature and realise that while looks are still important, the physical aspects of a person is not number 1 on your list.
Most dating sites are designed to enable you to immediately judge your date based on their looks. On Maturebia, users can read a persons profile and decide whether they would like to take things further. You are not forced to post your picture for display, you can send it only to people that you connect with and only when you feel comfortable doing so.
While it is a known fact that a photo adds the trust factor, not having a profile picture isn't necessarily a red flag. There are a number of people, both men and women on dating sites, that aren't comfortable putting a picture out for everyone to see. There are many reasons for this, and you won't know until you ask.
They may have a very legitimate reason for not wanting to put a picture up. Either they just might not want their co-workers, their children or relatives to know they are on a dating site. Sometimes people are just shy or he / she is a high profile, public figure or they may just be a very private person.
A typical example was lady who took a chance on getting to know a guy on a dating site that didn't have a profile picture, his profile also didn't include a lot of detail. After chatting with him for a while she found out why, he was a local TV news anchor and didn't want the fact that he was on a dating site to be public. He also wanted to avoid anyone who would be interested in dating him for his minor local celebrity status or his perceived income.
