Because I'm embarrassed for the person who lacks self-esteem that posted them?

I don't get mad at them. I just ignore them. Still, I feel bad that people don't think higher of themselves than to post on the Internet asking a bunch of strangers if they look ok.

The only person not to receive a second invitation to our rather open home with a decent cook is someone who a) has to share everything he/she hears b) is boring (which ahs nothing to do with being a loner/introvert). Greetings from a tag along of aviation.
This is an excellent point.... if I freaked out at every minor change I'd have had a few mental breakdowns. Hell, I'm writing an entire aviation companies SOP and creating all their forms (per IATA no less) from the ground up and there's no room for melodrama.

Be honest with all of your responses. I want to know.
I have no problem with rate my looks threads. I always promise to be 100% honest with my feedback.

sometimes I get really curious about what the people who rate others look like. I always assume the average person here is a 300 pound beast, so when they give that other girl a 6/10 I wonder what they give themselves. (6/10 doesn't have to be so bad depending on the scale you put together in your own head but im sure nobody wants to hear they are a 6.)

I'd LOVE to be a 6. I've done the 'rate my pic' threads on other sites and usually come up a 3 or 4. A 6? Sign me up!

Over reacting describes me better. I have always been that way, but have never had a "meltdown" in spite of some stressful situations. When things get difficult, I just refreshed my mind through meditation, put the past horrors behind my back, and moved on. Some people over react more than others, and I am one of them. Accepted the fact and did what works best to avoid panic when things go bad.

And here is a skill I have developed as a New Yorker:

"When small disruptions happen, we whine. When large disruptions happen, we gang up, don't panic, and tough it through "

So true for several instances in my life.

I'd consider that their problem, not the one asking the question...No one has to participate on a thread if they don't want to.
Don't let negative people get to you...but be aware that when you ask in a forum, you're bound to get some negative responses from some angry people.
There's nothing wrong with asking others opinions in a forum...about anything

well, even if you are a 3 or 4, the little saying under your username ensures that there will always be someone happy to bang you.

a long time ago I put a picture on hotornot.com. I think the last time I tried to log in it didn't work anymore. now that im a geezer id be a little nervous about doing that again.

does he still not talk to women? not talking to women is a trait that really isn't consistent with his persona. its not really consistent with yours either. id expect you to have female friends.

oh and when you say "oh dude not again" what do you mean? if this kind of thing is something you don't want me to bring up then let me know and i wont.
