As you can probably tell, I have never put up a picture of myself on here. It's not because I think I'm ugly, I think I'm actually quite decent. It's just a general rule of mine- no pictures on the internet. Factor in that I don't have a phone or any social media and... that rule becomes insanely easy to keep by :) Plus, I think having one set picture stands out more than a photo of yourself. I don't know, I could be wrong.
I think I could end up putting a picture of myself on here for you all to see (if the demand is great enough :P ), but not any time soon. I really, really don't want to be recognised here.
Why do I even think any of you are going to care anyway? I'm going to make some apple crumble.
I never used to but recently I've been putting my picture up as you can see. Sometimes I take it down when I get loads of weird messages from men who can barely speak English. I do like having my picture up though so people know what I look like. I like knowing what people look like for some reason. I guess I can then put a name to the face - I'll remember them better then.
I don't have a profile picture up because: 1. I don't want my lack of attractiveness influencing how people take my posts. 2. I don't want potential harassment because some people would think I'm fugly and would think that that's a solid reason to give me grief on here. I have enough grief because of that in real life. Don't need it online too. 3. I'm afraid someone I know IRL would be here and recognize me and sees the embarrassing things I've asked. My posts are a good insight on my thoughts and personality. I don't want people IRL knowing that without talking to me about it.
I have put my picture up as a profile pic for two questions. But I don't think I will do that again in the future. I have and might, however, post my pic on certain posts. Anonymous, mostly.
chose A. primarily for professional reasons i also want people valuing my opinions, not what the hell i look like however, if i ever put an actual pic of me, it will just be one of my body in the shadows
