Interculturalisticman, thanks for tagging me. I’m glad I got to see this before it self-destructed. I can do relate to your selfie-aversion and how it can seem self-centered and vain. (You see I went back to my six-year-old profile pict — haha!) But it really has to do with your motivation. Some folks include to share their adventures, others simply to preen. You took a really big step in being so transparent. Give it time. You’re an interesting person with an even more interesting story to tell. Trust yourself, take it a little at a time, and enjoy the ride!
P.S. Your looks should give you NO REASON to feel self-conscious about posting full-face picts. Dude, you’re handsome. (I say that here as a statement of fact because I know this entire thread will self-destruct.)
