    Unfortunately, due to the work I do and the company I work for I can't put my face as an avatar. But to the people I have already as fans, and to the ones that I add in the future, I will add an album when I have everything figured out with regards to settings and what I can and...

    I'm Just Very Very Ugly

    I don't blame myself- I know it's not my fault- its just the way I am. But it makes me feel very awkward. I feel sad that my husband got stuck being married to me because every man deserves to wake up with a beauty and someone who makes them feel alive and vibrant. I feel bad...

    Anonymous <3

    I enjoy the anonymity of this site. That I can share things, uninhibited and anonymously, appeals to me greatly. I may share my age, which state I currently live, small details of family life (married, divorced, single, kids and the like) and the occassion nude pic, but things...

    This Is My Reason (thanks Oc)

    ☞I'm insecure. ☞ I like the internet because of anonymity. ☞ Everything changes when I show people what I look like. ☞ I like when people have their own image of what I look like. It's more fun. ☞ I feel more vulnerable showing myself. i copied OC because he gave...

    The Reason.

    First of all, I am not attractive. At all. Secondly, and most importantly, I don't want anyone to recognize me or know who I am. I'd hate it if people I knew saw the pictures on my profile.

    To Be Safe

    Even though I enjoy EP a lot.. I know it can be dangerous still.... That's the reason I do not show my pic.. Also, I don't want to be discovered by the people in my real world because they might invade my life here.

    Private Albums...

    We need to have private albums that are not available to people just because they are in our circle of "friends". There should be a way for us to list only the names of our true friends that we want to view our photos.

    Amenity

    I do not show myself for the simple fact that I can share stories and experiences without family and friends knowing. I like that I can be totally open and honest and not worry about being judged well in most cases and the worry of people gossiping. I love EP for that.
