When one goes to an online dating site they may have certain expectations or preconceived ideas. Maybe we form preconceived ideas and expectations the instant we see the person’s profile picture – maybe in viewing this image we suddenly form an idea of this person’s personality.
Online dating is about selling oneself. And that “sale” starts with ones’ profile picture. And here is where my crazy photo project begins…
Today’s suitor is a butch throwing up what appears to be gangsta signs, along with ridiculous facial expressions. I look like a combination of my uncle, Brian, and my cousin, Matt, neither of which have been known to throw up gangsta signs.
It took me an absurd amount of time to edit through all the photos and come up with only three… every photo was so silly, between shots I was laughing and trying not to laugh while posing.
