    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.

    I come here to be honest

    and talk about stuff anonymously. If I wanted people to know who I am, I'd go somewhere else

    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 :(

    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...

    No One I Know....

    .....knows I'm on EP. My screen name is nothing more than a red herring. Because of what I do for a living and where I do it, and especially because of what my significant other does for a living, I keep myself hidden even as I'm making myself public. But my views, my...

    No, I’m Not Ugly!

    I have a GOOD reason why I don't show my face on EP, and no, it is not because I'm ugly! LOL!  It is that I’m here ONLY as MissGaga and I believe MissGaga looks like this >>>  Regardless to the fact she is called Miss, she has a mustache and wears men clothes! ….:)) First...

    If I send you a picture

    and you're "smart" (not so smart) enough to screenshot it. Be SMART enough to know I won't be sending you anymore. It is disrespectful and rude and you miss the phone so you're not hurting anyone but yourself.

    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 don't show my picture on here for a reason.....it's because I belong to quite a few "interesting" groups and I don't want people in my small town knowing what I'm really like. People judge..that's just the way it is. They don't need to know everything about me.

    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.

    I would never post a picture with my face in it

    online but I have no issues sending pictures with my face in them to people I know - just not with strangers. Though as a guy you don't get asked for pictures very often anyway so it isn't a big deal one way or the other.
