Not that this is the place to actually write this...but when the person you chat with sends you here and then is useless after that...I guess this is where I'm stuck. (Some actual people who can truly help would be nice...but I digress.)

The search option on the stock site is severely lacking and is in need of updating. It would benefit you to include some more search filters like:

Background/No Background 
1 Person/2 People/Three or More
Looking at the camera/Not looking at the Camera

It would help out SO MUCH! Because I waste so much time right now trying to look through photos that I know I can't use because the search filters are awful! 

I know other stock sites have options similar to these so they are actually something that could be done. I like how the libraries integrate into my products and that's mainly why I use it, but seriously, fix the search.

Thanks for sharing the feedback.
I would suggest the best place to post and gather observations would be: https://forums.adobe.com/community/stock

see! This is what I mean about people who could ACTUALLY be helpful! I talked to someone in a chat from Adobe and they told me that this was the place to put this! That's so annoying!

Apologies for any inconvenience caused.
Stock forums is another heaven for you to share your valuable suggestion/feedback and active participants would ensure to get back to you. You might just find relative post/thread as per your suggestion.

This area is for requesting Photoshop features. The stock team is somewhat separate but we can direct requests to the engineers on Photoshop that help integrate services like stock.

In the meantime, have you tried the visual search on https://stock.adobe.com (Click the camera icon and drag an image on the drop zone to find similar stock images)

At MAX Keynote, the stock/Photoshop team demoed a prototype where you could right click on a layer and search for similar images right from within Photoshop (so it is something that's on the radar).
