Ever since this guy I met on Match put me through a grueling picture-by-picture interrogation, I’ve been rethinking my Match.com profile pictures.
It was excruciating to hear, “And HOW old is THIS photo?” over and over again.
Yes, some of my pictures are old but that’s because I want them to show me DOING interesting things – like flying airplanes, hiking the Watchtower trail in the Sequoias, and eating a silkworm grub.
I think they APPROPRIATELY capture my essence – funny, adventurous, creative. . .
I mix them with CURRENT photos.
Photos of me at Burning Man.
Photos of me catching a salmon.
Photos of me in my sister’s hot tub.
Do you want to know what THE MOST POPULATR PHOTO OF ME IS?
It’s this picture of me leaning on my friend Geoff’s Cobra.
It was taken on my 34th birthday (some 9 years ago) and to be honest, the only reason I’m draped across the hood of his car is because I didn’t think he’d be happy if I tried to do the SPLITS on it.
À la Whitesnake.
Sadly, I think it’s time to retire this photo.
Although it feels like I was 34 JUST YESTERDAY, the sad fact of the matter is that it was 9 YEARS AGO.
I don’t want to be accused of misleading anyone.
But FUCK that guy for making me feel deceitful.
