I'm in grad school, but no one wants to hear about that.
They always tell you that your pictures should tell a story about yourself. Well, okay. My first non-profile picture represents a time in my life when I liked wearing guitar straps around my head. As you'd expect, that got me girls like crazy. Hopefully (and expectantly I must admit) you're probably one of those girls.
I also like wearing sunglasses indoors, AT NIGHT. Again, combined with the guitar strap look, you'd imagine that must've made me quite the catch. Do you purposely seek out the guy in the club conspicuously wearing sunglasses with no shame? You're my type then.
I used to live on the edge of the desert (for 2 years!) in a place I had no idea previously existed before. Turbans and tank tops were a big deal there, so I figured I'd represent that part of my life (that was a wild time).
See that picture with me in the Celtics shirt? That's exactly what I look like when they lose. I will love you forever as my girl model of perfection if you too react the same way when the Celtics lose.
Somebody told me it would be really poignant for me to include a picture representing me coming back home to Boston. What's more Bostonian than the ducks and swans of the public gardens? So contemplative. So poignant. I hope you agree.
When I took a picture of myself with my iphone, I tried to brood and look away from the camera. I read statistically that guys who did that on sites like Match, get the highest percentage of responses. Obviously, THAT didn't work out for me. I can't help but look earnest in self-shot photos.
What I can say though, is that one of the hallmarks of 'closeness and chemistry' is willingly showing a girl all those photos of yourself which were in the reject pile. If I really like you, I'll show you how I looked brooding away from the camera. Try not to laugh, or else I'll send all of your reject photos to everyone who matters to you.
Do you want to take a ride to the top? Do you want peak performance? Are you trying to find yourself through the eyes of another? Hell no, you're probably not going to get that with me (despite what my carefully crafted photo sequence may have led you to believe). However, if you said YES to any of the above, then you're my girl. Get in line quick! You know it's going to get busy here soon.
