I Am Afraid to Show Pictures of Myself

Don't ask because I won't tell or show you what I look like. 292 People

    People always seem to view me one way

    or the other. They think I'm super pretty or what ever or they thing I'm the spawn of Satan and belong under a bridge. so posting any photo makes me super nervous because people always feel the need to share these opinions :( I tell myself when I lose weight everyone will think...

    I'm afraid of people getting close to me,

    then leaving me. It's hard to make friends when you have a face like mine.

    I will not show my pictures here on EP

    for the fear that someone might recognise me. I don't want the people who knows me to become aware of my struggles and real emotions.

    I'm Not Afraid

    I am not afraid to show my picture. I just refuse to show it unless you have earned my trust then ask me if you can see it, then I'll show you. I have been called hot, sexy, babe, cute, smokin, you name it. But I like being just a face in the crowd in online living. I am...

    I am not an attractive person.

    There are millions of pictures of people out there, and I find myself inadequate when I compare how I look to how the average person does. The world would not be better if people could see my face.

    No Pictures

    I have kind of a like/hate relationship with pictures. On the one hand, I hate to show people pictures of myself, because I am so heavy and I feel like it's more obvious in pictures. On the other hand, my family doesn't take pictures of me very often. ( I won't go into how bad...

    Ugh

     Not because I dont want to be looked at but because they might see something I dont like.I will scrutinize a photo for a long time from different angles before showing it.

    Maybe some day I'll do it,

    but I'd rather just remain a mystery when it comes to appearances for now.

    Am Afraid That People Will Comment Negatively Or Say I Am Ugly....

    I am by far an oil painting. At best, I am probably sweet looking. I am almost 26 but look 17/18, am very slim and am only 5'3. I believe that other then that I am an ugly person. I have horrible hair, a big nose, thin lips, am flat chested and have ridiculously small ears. I...

    Even Photoshop Can't Help Me...

    ...some people hate the way they look and yet still have no problem putting up numerous pis of themselves, even if it makes them cringe. I'm even worse than that. I wish that I could have the courage to do that, but I really truly hate any picture of me. I don't like looking at...

    It's not really even the fact

    that I don't want people to see me; I could really care less. It's mainly the fact that I want to be 100% honest on here, but I know that I won't if my real picture is up. I guess you could say I'm a little paranoid, but I don't want anyone I know stumbling across my profile and...

    I'm a Bit Timid

    First of all... I hate being photographed and if someone somehow manages to take a photo of me, I look WEIRD in it, mostly because I hate that situation so much that it shows in every aspect of me. There are very few photos that actually look like me, so who would want to show...

    I Don't Have a Camera But

    I do have pictures of myself but I never post them. I feel like when I'm on the internet I can say things without getting judged as much or people knowing who I am. If I posted pictures I would shut up fast and probably not be able to do anything unless I started over with...

    Technically NOT afraid of showing a picture of

    myself...I just don't feel like showing you who I am unless there is some connexion between us, or feel close to you...I guess I'm just one of those people who wants to be in touch with people and bond
