    Hm.. You shouldn't delete them, or atleast ask someone else to see if it's good, or just normal.

    Or you could just put it here.

    Meh, that's fair. I delete pictures of myself all the time because I don't like how they look. For the record, I think my iPhone camera is a habitual liar and I get frustrated with its constant distortion of reality :P It's not unreasonable to want to put your best foot forward, but then again a picture doesn't have to be perfect. It's totally up to you; I wouldn't push you to do something you didn't want to. In any case, I don't think anyone will think less of you if you do. You're still a cool mod and a nice guy. Your good, bad, or average looks won't change that for me personally.

    Naahhh, you've got a long way to go before you're bottom of the pile. If I can be completely honest, I've seen a few pictures on the Internet where I thought "ouch". Not so with yours. You've got a little extra weight around your face, but your features are fairly symmetrical. Your skin is clear and you seemed to survive adolescence without facial scarring (not everyone is so lucky). Weight can always be brought under control (I lost 75 pounds myself several years ago) and you might be surprised how good you could look with a little time and effort. I don't see a lost cause here, sorry!

    Honestly you don't look bad.

    At least you don't have bags under your eyes like me.

    And have you considered what you would look like if you shaved off that beard, let a little hair grow, wore a tux etc. Like a BAWS!!


    Big changes can happen instantly in terms of appearance. Not that it is needed.

    Also.....I am in the mood for meat...... a lot.

    Okay I give.
    It took what feels like 100 pictures taken and 60 deleted before I gave up and just went with the best one xD
    I included some pretty to the sides for everyone to look at, and had to crop the image because there was a whole bunch of space above and to one side.
    (Also supremely bad timing on pimple in the middle of my eyebrows...I swear that's not normally there)


    Welcome to the first picture ever uploaded to the internet of me, in the last 6 years.

    EDIT: Some people assume I'm a girl. If anyone here still thought that, the above may be shocking.

    What were you so worried about? You're a nice looking guy Honestly, and I really mean honestly, the way you played it up made me think you were going to be unattractive. You look way different than I expected, older too. Solid pic!

    I'm 22 for the record, if you didn't know.

    Over the past ~10months I've lost about 28kgs (61.7 LBs for Americans) so maybe that explains why.
    But more so all I meant to convey is a lack of Camera skills, I said in PvM already but I almost blinded my self trying to take pictures...not even sure if that one was using flash or not. I stopped using flash when I had 3 dots in my vision that wouldn't go away.

    You look pretty good, Anak!

    And you also look older. xd


    Also, those posters behind you, I want that!

    It has been more than a year and a half since I last posted here so update is in order

    1) I am the small guy. My best friend put on her killer heels so we could see hight difference just for the lolz of it.
    2) Blame the phone for the crappy picture.

    Congratulations on the weight loss, dude. That's damn impressive! Looking good too! =D

    I though you are female. No idea why, though. I think because of Ava/sig

    Ahahahaha!!!

    Anak, you thought everyone thought of you as a guy, but I guess not.

    I did, and not because of your avatar or name or anything, but because of the fact that you tried and deleted so many pictures. Most guys I know would just take one and say "Ah Hell, good enough."

    Anyway, you look better than I do, so yeah. Nothing to be afraid of.
