Self Confidence through Photos Curious about how posting pictures effects you.
Posted Thu Aug 04, 2011 11:17 PM
I am wondering from other peoples' points of view, how does posting pictures online benefit you? Does it benefit you, or do you get over analytical about what you've posted. Does having others comment on your pictures boost your confidence in real life?
As always, thanks for reading!

If I had to make an educated guess, it'd be kind of like 'this is how I/we do it!'

I try not to let what happens here affect me outside of here, yes I take those compliments I get into shoots with me to help boost my self esteem (that way the shoot will go better), but I try to take everything that is said on here with a grain of salt. It is the internet after all and a lot of guys have more blood in their penises then they do in their brains when commenting LOL. Not to say that their isn't sincere compliments and sincere guys on here, because their is.

I'm glad you are actually intelligent. You should be more proud and self-righteous knowing you can over-analyze like that then feel anxious and unconfident.
Let me let you in on a secret, everyone goes through that. Girls who want to feel more comfortable and confident, use SF as a method. So stop your negative hindsight and enjoy yourself at the moment.

Why am I so sure online pictures can up your RL confidence? Cause its the story of me.
I can go into detail if you wish.
About the analyzing, I do it for sure but I blame that on my photography interests these days.

i basically have a few in my gallery to say hey, this is my booty, or my smile or my ... short self. me havin fun, livin it up.
when i post in chat, i dont think beyond im havin fun, enjoyin the moment, maybe answerin back to someone whos posted somethin, joinin the gang or showin off a great time out.
i guess i think if it makes me feel good, do it, if it doesnt, i dont...and when im drinkin, i need to hide my pics folder. lol.

For lack of any other means, we paste a very private photo or video somewhere to see if anyone notices or has a comment. At one time, each of us had something called privacy to be treasured as very personal and sacred, but slowly we seem to be surrendering this most precious commodity to people you would not associate with on the street; people you would never talk to; people that might have prison records or be pedophiles....somehow, maybe because of distance; that seems to be the thing to do.

For those attached to mates who do not share that idea, posting could be the beginning of trouble and maybe a break up.
My Mother, who I respected for her wisdom, once said, "If you wouldn't write it or display it on the front page of a newspaper, don't do it." I sort of live by that ideal...but that's me...semi-square.
People that are unattached have got to simply deal with their conscience which defines for them what is right or wrong or who might see it that could cause them friction. KAZANTZAKIS

basically, ive heard everything that can be said, and while i still appreciate compliments, i know. (in a totally non conceited kind of way lol)
i dont post many new pics because i guess id rather talk about something other than how big my penis is. (most of the time)
