    I Don'T Get It

    I don't understand why some people put their actual picture up as their avatar. In a world where we are first judged on our appearances, isn't it nice to have some anonymity and be able post our experiences without fear of being judged off how we look as well? I mean, it is a...

    Yes everyone it really is me in my avatar. I'm too confident in who I am to give credit to someone else by using their picture!

    My picture on Experience Project is really me.

    The picture was taken by my father, and I use it on here. It is from last year, but I still look the same today. I am not really skilled with pictures & computers, so I do not have any other pictures loaded on Experience Project; I do not know how to do it.

    Yup, if there's nothing to hide,

    why use a fake picture?

    It's My Torso

    That's my torso in my avatar. It was taken just after a workout so I'm a little sweaty, and I'm also a little sunburnt from having spent the day outside.

    My Avatar Is Me...

    ...but not how I always look - I'm normally a bit more masculine than that, but this EP login is my femme personality.

    Well It Depends

    I am shy in reality and bold on Internet :3 I have the guts to message you and to ask questions while in real life I would probably give you a bad look (people tell me I look angry- in reality I just don't know how to handle attention) or blush. But my beliefs are the same in...

    It's Me!

    If I was going to have a fake avatar or pics in my profile, I would have picked someone hotter, lol. Or at least thinner... hahaha.  It is me!  And I will eventually be posting a verification pic so people will believe me...  Just don't know what kinda pic I wanna post!

    Facing My Face

    I've always used either my own picture or Mjolnir, Thor's hammer, as an avatar.I never saw any reason to hide myself online, for the same reason I never wear a mask when I go out into the street.Some people opt for anonymity, usually because their entourage isn't as broad minded...

    Obviously, the picture in my avatar isn't me

    because it's a tiger, but the pictures in two of my private albums are indeed me, even though I choose not to show my face in any of them.

    This is a picture of Isak Dinesen.  Well, that's her pen name.  Her real name is Karen Blixen, the author depicted in the movie, Out of Africa, one of my top ten favorites.  She led such an adventurous life.  The opposite of mine.  I have stayed much too safe for my own...

    Your Avatar/pic

    Is that a real pic of you? Or are you just showing all of us who you would like to be. Anonymity can be fun. it allows us to show the world who we are inside, our alter egos, even if it is unacceptable to the masses. I enjoy the stories behind the avatars. Please share yours

    I am not a fake person and I would never use a fake avatar on this site or any other that I belong to; that's being fake and a liar, and I am not into that.

    Well, It Is a Part of the Real Me. . .

    Yes, it's definitely my foot and one of my dozen's of pairs of shoes.  Perhaps in time another photo will take this one's place.  Perhaps the curve of my neck, my legs possibly, my torso. . . who knows?  Maybe in time I'll reveal the complete me.
