Yes, I get that guys will ultimately want to know what I look like. But if it's the first thing they are asking for, does it foreshadow them, at least seeming like a jerk? Or being shallow?
How embarrassing it is to send a picture and for them to stop replying! This only happened to me 1/5 times. OK maybe 2/5 (He replied for a couple of times after that with Q's and then suddenly stopped).

"But if it's the first thing they are asking for, does it foreshadow them, at least seeming like a jerk?" No. Because he has to find you attractive if he's going to have a relationship with you. Men and women are different. Women get much more out of conversation for the sake of conversation than men do. This man is on a mission to find what he wants to find. He just doesn't want to waste his time or yours.
If you're embarrassed by guys not replying to you after you show them your pic, make your pic visible for all to see. Also you'll encourage more guys to message you.
