Said as gently as possible... admittedly, some of the responses were brusk, but are you looking for advice or fishing for compliments, hence your posting your personal pics & dating profile... not something I've often see done on this site?

You've panned every response you've replied to... the better ones, I might add. What is it you truly want? Compliments? No one said cut your hair, just style it differently. You can't get your eyebrows done 'til your mum does. Your large holiday sweater was just a one off. What do you want?

It seems as if you're a young, insecure girl who needs a bit of ego boosting. No offense love, but perhaps that's best gained in a short stint of counseling. Put off your dating attempts 'til you've gotten a stronger sense of yourself... then, you'll attract a better partner who will enhance your life. For the time being, it seems you need to do that for yourself. You seem a nice person. Strengthen your ideas of what you want, are & need before venturing out beyond your comfort zone.

I wish you well. As always, take constructive criticism with a grain of salt & do what's best for you. But, if you're asking for advice, don't stomp on it all once offered. Remember, you asked... strangers, I might add.

Good luck with your decisions!

I really love Audrey Hepburn's look for someone with your shape! (Or what of it I can surmise from your pics.)

All I wanted to know was if I looked like a man.

No, but got to say you look closer to 50 than 25. Or are we being punk'd?

Op you be how you want to be. I look like a normal white woman then when people met me I'm more of a "Vanilla Ice" type of gal.

Go towards what you like. Never conform.

What's a Vanilla Ice type of gal. Do you stop, calibrate and listen? Or flow like a harpoon daily and nightly?

Throw it AWAY!! Seriously, you need to get rid of that sweater (and any others that you have similar to it)

You are waaaay too young to be wearing the granny Christmas sweaters.

I had to go back and look........ yep, you are wearing christmas themed clothes.

No one under 80 or above the age of 8 is allowed to do that.

Ever.

Pretty much. If you want to feel christmasy, try a red top with a few sequins. You can put on a santa hat. The christmas broach is a little hard to pull off, but plausible.

I'm on board with Jade. I'll even concede a pair of cute christmas-y earrings.

I told my 66 year old mother that if she starts wearing holiday themed clothes I would put her in a home immediately.

For her, I allowed a pair of halloween socks only to be worn on the day itself.
