I Do Not Show My Face On Ep For A Reason

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 1,476 People

    Two Reasons

    I have two main reasons that I do not show my face here. Some of my content here is of a sexual nature. Since this is the case, I have to protect two parts of my life from it. The first is my livelihood. Nothing will stunt your career/professional growth faster than a...

    I Don't

    Some people have seen my face privately and that is fine but I don't show my face to the entirely of EP because I do want to remain somewhat anonymous. There are some friends and family who would not appreciate seeing me here. I am not ashamed of how I look but I am careful. So I...

    My Reason:

    I've shared a lot on here, and will probably share more that frankly, I don't want my neighbors or co-workers knowing... I'd share a pic with someone after chatting for a bit, but not just publicly...

    Used Too But Not Anymore

    I used to have a head shot of me as my avatar but not any more. I witnessed some things and heard some pretty scary stories that made me re-think my choice to do so. So I am much more cautious now and only those in my circle can see those pics. Right away there was a huge...

    Because

    Why would I? I have no plans to ever meet anyone from here, so no one needs to see my face.

    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.

    Politics

    In real life, I'm involved in politics in one of those "unstable" countries in the Middle East. I'm one of the despised liberal secularist opposition - despised by the Islamist majority, of course. My profile contains some explicit stuff (well, actually, will contain; I had an...

    I don't want to be identified.

    I am a very private person and anonymously on the internet with strangers is , by light years , the most I've admitted about myself. I feel ashamed about my self and mistakes. The "real world ". Sees me always smiling and laughing

    I do not show my face on here.

    ....it's only because I think I'm really ugly, hideous, and fat. I also am scared I'll be talked about or judged on the way I look. I know it sounds stupid and dumb :(

    It Is An Anonymous Site

    Hello?!!EP is an anonymous site.If you care to show your face on it, fine but for those of us who choose not to, that is our right to do so or not.People should share what they feel comfortable sharing not what they are bullied into sharing.

    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.

    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.
