I 'll Take No Pics Over No Stories

Personal Stories, Advice, and Support 160 People

    Any Day! I can understand people wanting to

    feel secure when they are online. Many security sites recommend that one never post pictures on the internet, but I don't understand why someone would be part of EP and not add stories. That is the foundation of EP, without stories it would not have grown to the site it is today...

    Odd.

    Half the time I don't even realize that people I have friended have pictures until someone happens to comment on them.If I've added someone it's because I like what they have to say not because of what they look like.Except *Blushes* the creator of this group. Kinda added him...

    This is true. Don't get me wrong pictures are

    nice, but stories tell who the person is. I mean even if they have pictures they could be fake. So give me stories any day.

    I never understand how this isn't the case with

    everyone. I was under the impression that this site is about sharing experiences that you may or may not feel comfortable sharing in real life via the medium of anecdotes and the like; yet every single day I get a hoard of guys messaging me rude, overtly sexual messages and...

    Yes

    I rather friend someone who has stories, who i can truly get to know, rather than having just pics and no stories. There is so much more to understand and get, and learn from people from their stories as opposed to their pics. I much rather have people write stories than post...

    I will definitely take no pictures over no

    stories. Pictures could be of anyone, and usually are. A picture does not tell me much about the person even if it is the person's picture. On the other hand, a story tells me something about the writer and how he or she thinks.

    Two Reasons

    One of the reasons I like EP is that I get to read all kinds of interesting experiences.  That's not going to happen if a person hasn't posted any stories!  A picture may be worth a heap of words, but there is more to any person than the visual.  I hesitate to interact with...

    If You Are Happy Or Sad, Write About It!...

    I am so grateful I found this forum. I know some of my writing is a bit redundant, but I'm working on it. I'm adding new experiences and finding new ways to share my experience with you almost daily! I was having a case of "writer's block" over the weekend. I have a lot of "stuff...

    Yeah I really like looking at

    and taking pictures but this site gives me a chance to get to know others as well as myself by sharing experiences. So while I would like a healthy dose of both pictures and experiences if I could only have one I would take the stories.
