Feeling Confused

I finally managed to post a photo, at least to humanize this thing a little.

I'm ambibalent about that image. I really like it, but it's dark and maybe even ugly. I have pictures where I look really cute, and then guys start assuming I'm this cute thing, and that makes me feel hypocritical. I have photos where I look old and then guys ignore me and I feel that's unfair, because I'm not all that bad. It's the medium that's the problem, I guess. When you meet people IRL they know what you look like right away, and in this very visual world that's one important thing to get out of the way right away.

I know it seems shallow to obsess about an image, but I think it's important in this place.

I wouldn't mind some honest critique of this photo. I don't want to become a two-dimensional thing, but I do want some feedback. I also don't want my guy to come across my photo even by the remotest chance, so I can't be too obvious.

Oh, what a tangled web I weave.

I agree, pictures can be very misleading. My best advice to you is to use a pic that reflects what someone would see of you if they met you on any given day. I don't use 'good' pics of me. I use ones that look like what you might see if you passed me on the street. {=}
