    Am I the only one that has a picture in their head that they want to see matches the person that they think they are talking to on here?

    Sarge---I have a feeling that I am imagining an older person than you really are, but you offer so much advice that I agree with.


    Alice---I taught with a wonderful English teacher my second year that healed my soul in so many ways. I still count her a dear friend. Your advice reminds me of her, so when I read your post I hear her voice saying them.

    This is just the start...I would never ask anyone to invade their privacy by posting a picture. I teach in a small school where I would be slammed for posting some of the things I do, so I would never post my own picture. But I want to give you a clue....


    I am between .....

    That's quite the range! :haha:

    I'm terribly curious as well...I just want to know how accurate (or not, more likely) my mental images are.

    I'll send you a PM since I know you're out of state. :)

    I'm told I bear a remarkable resemblance to this person (especially the pic in the blue dress), but with a bit of a curve to my nose.

    We had this thread when I first joined the forum (nearly 2 thousand posts ago).

    I'm too chicken to share a photo of myself here, though if you follow me on Twitter I have my picture there. I am NOT ku_alum on Twitter.

    I always get "you look like a skinny Trisha Yearwood." I can see the resemblance, so here is a photo of her with a similar hair style as me (a lot of her photos have curly hair):

    I look like my sister. So much we could be twins (and are often mistaken for twins), even though she is 12 years older. How's that for helpful? :lol:

    Some of you I know from Facebook, but still sometimes to me you don't match your image!

    I've always been curious about this as well. I remember when the original thread went around a few years back, and people put up their pictures for a few short moments.
    I'm too chicken as well to put up a photo, not because of the way that I look, but I guard my online identity as much as I can, although anyone who know me would be able to figure out who I am reading my posts.

    Yes, I've always been curious as well as I have mental images in my head and they are probably all wrong!! :)

    It would be neat if we could all find a celebrity or a picture of someone online that we sort of look like. It would help with the "mental picture" i guess. I will give it a shot.

    I don't post pictues online.

    But I'm 5'4" with Irish features: blonde hair (right now, it's short-- just above my chin-- and layered) and blue eyes.

    I'm of medium build.. a little heavier than I would like but still pretty thin.

    I'm 52 years old, but was told yesterday that I "wear it well."

    I have no problem! Here are 2 of me within the last month. And I threw in one of my husband and I on our wedding day; sure he won't mind! :) Hope they aren't huge!

    MissWull~I remember seeing pics of your wedding and thinking you were beautiful.

    I've been told I look like Drew Barrymore.

    You do, STG!

    I don't mind my picture online. We have one on the Sprout website, which is my signature here.

    Bros, you so do not look like how I imagined you to. :) Cute high school picture. :D

    Well, I don't like to post pics of me online. I've been told of some actresses that I look like, but I don't see it. I did one of those who do you look like celebrity thing where you post your picture and it matches you up. According to the site, I looked like Kate Winslet the most, although I totally don't see it.

    I agree! It's so funny that several of us had the same (wrong) idea!

    I have no idea who I look like...except for my mom, but with ash blonde hair.

    They are soooo adorable, ST82. You've had a busy year I bet.

    The celebrity picture idea sure is a good one. I don't know who I'd pick. All I know is that 30 years ago people thought I looked like Natalie Wood with blue eyes. Now they'd say Kathy Bates with short hair! Haha. Not exactly .....

    But I sure have changed. I started going grey in my twenties, I'd say, and was completely grey by my mid-forties. I just go with what God intended these days and get compliments on my silvery hair. Some people think it is professionally colored.

    Alice - I pictured you exactly as you describe.
