    I Once Used Another Woman's Pic

    as an avatar, and sent it to men online I was chatting with. She wasn't a model though. My reason is I never felt my looks measured up to what men and women find attractive. I was sure no one would look twice or talk to me if I presented my real self, physically OR my...

    Everybody Knows They Are Fake But.......

    I have also wondered about why women use photos of models on their profiles .. ...(?????).  However , I have noticed that even though most people know ( or,  at least I hope they know) these photos are fake and maybe a far cry from the real  EP member, most ...

    You're beautiful and you can be proud of it.

    Never let a picture of a model be a representation of you when you can represent yourself

    I Sort of Don't Understand

    The Answer Is Simple, In Most Cases

    If you have a picture of an attractive person on your avatar, you will get a lot of positive attention from the opposite sex (or same sex, if that's your thing).  You'll be noticed.  I don't see a thing wrong with that.  If someone has a picture of a rabbit on...

    Doesn't This Makes Them Artificial ...!!

    I think every women is a model herself and they don't need to hide themselves for someone's else's Pic. There is no other beauty then the beauty in being yourself.... Ladies...trust me...you all are sexy, gorgeous and beautiful :)

    I Think....

     That the reason they do so is because they don't like themselves, like that model or just don't have a pic. uploaded. The reason why i don't put a pic. of myself >i have put 1 up but is blurred!< is because i like my anonymity, i think that the 1,000,000 of people...

    Mhm.

    I don't understand the logic in this, unless the woman is a lesbian. See, I have to look at my avatar whenever I am on EP. I do not want to spend my time looking at a sexed up model. I would rather look at something cute, meaningful to me or an actor I find...

    I understand why they do, maybe they aren't confident enough about their own looks I know I'm not that confident in mine, however the real reason I don't show my photo online is because I have a troubled past that involved bullying and assault and I don't want any of my past...

    Why? Because We Can!

    I can only speak for myself. I love Beyonce, and think she has the most amazing face in the Universe. I can't have her eyes or skin in real life, will never be as beautiful as her. But here at EP I can use her image for my avatar. I'll tell you what I wonder about. I wonder why...

    Probably for the same reason men put up pictures of hunks.  Look at my avatar - it's really ten times better looking than me, that's why I used it.
