::pokes you::
Hey.



::pokes again::
Uhh, hi.



::pokes again::
Oh, forget to say...I find it interesting!




::pokes again::
That nobody bothers you since you have the hunting picture on CC.



p.s. - Used a different finger to poke than the one in my CC picture. My index finger is my poking finger. :eek:


Now it just makes the "NO ONE" more withering :p.

I think it would be really boring if everyone did not put up some kind of expression of themselves. I really like seeing the different avatars and the pictures as well, in fact I think I like the pic. best, as it helps to see where the person is coming from. Keep' em coming!!

Do you get Stranger PM's? I've wondered about that since your avatar is female, but you're a guy. lol
Yes I do : p I just ignore them, haha.

No one forces anyone to respond to them or take them seriously.

hey guys, im curious… does a user on this site really need a profile pic or an avatar of themself? yes, its good for someone to know what you really look like…but what if you're a drop dead gorgeous and decide to post your pic for your avatar…the next thing you know is that you've got a ton of private messages from guys who cant resist finding who you are? im really hesitant on puting a picture of myself. i know i can always use a normal picture of just about anything but i feel there's no point. im really desperate to edit my profile and put a picture of somesort.
so, what i ask is…what are some advice about how decent your pic should be? and how do you avoid all the attention???
Its a hard job being handsome/pretty but somebody's gotta do it...

my profile pic is an illustration from Pilgrim's Progress - "Help" rescuing "Christian" from "the swamp of despair"
i suppose it's what i hoped i might be to someone by being a member here.

and my avatar.. well, that's actually more descriptive. lol.

no, don't sweat it -- i see no reason to put a real picture of myself up. i don't think i'm ugly or that i would attract undue attention; i guess i'm just shy, and thought too that another image might stand to do more good than a picture of my face. though maybe that thought was just me justifying my shyness..?

Lol with all my profile pics I haven't had a pm, I guess it's how active you are on the site, I'm not very active on the site all the time.

i actually take alot of pics of myself and they're all stored on my PC. so, its really easy to pick a random and add it as a profile or avatar personally, i dont approve the pics with your full face pouting your lips into the camera as if its the only pose you can think of. imagine posting a pic like that for all the guys to see. really? well, thats my argument?

now, i have a question.... if you need to put on a pic for your avatar....how do you keep it non-luring and unattractive???? hehe :D
