I met a guy on another website and we started texting because we live in the same town. On the site I had a picture of my body, but not my face. People call me a butterface, so I'm afraid to show my face online.
This guy seemed really nice and based on his picture he was cute. After two weeks of texting he asked for a picture of my face. I picked one of my best ones and sent it to him.
That was on Monday and he hasn't texted me since I sent the pic. We used to text every day. Do you think he lost interest? Should I try texting him or call time of death on this potential relationship?

Unfortunately, relationships start with attraction and after you have that, well it is all about personality and how well you get along with each other. So, yes, if you show a guy how you look and he changes up his level of contact to this extreme, I would say he found out he just is not attracted to you.
I think in online dating it is better to be honest and up front about our appearance than hold back on it. When I did online dating I experienced guys lying about their height and physical fitness as well as posting pics that were really not very representative of them. I don't know that for me any of these misrepresentations were the deal breaker but they did not help. Guys are more visual, and I have heard of male friends who were super frustrated to meet a girl and find out she was seriously overweight or looked older than her pictures.
If you feel your face is unattractive, online dating might not be the place for you to date but who knows. I would definitely not just post a body picture though. Sorry, but no amount of personality will make up for a guy just not being attracted to you. It is better to be up front and see what comes of that. I see plenty of people in relationships that would not be considered classically attractive. Don't sell yourself short.0
