As has been said, I imagine people as their avatars. This can be particularly confusing when I see posts by people like Aconite or Emerald

I don't know many people on these boards and the majority I do have profile pics so there's no problem but it means I don't really know anyone well enough to guess based on posts etc

I do get this annoying habit when reading, when I totally ignore what the description of the character is, come up with my own image, sometimes of someone I know, and then the description end up being quite important :rofl:

Feel free to take the mick out of how you imagine me to be, or my actual pic (which I'd like to point out is over a year old. And I'm shaving tomorrow :sad:

I'm intrigued, pumpkin. Or rather, my ego is potentially being stroked, which is always an enticing prospect. What did I look like? Whisper to me. Don't let everyone on here know.

Hmm. Can I give it a serious go?

Redhead - maybe looks more brown, or maybe proper red or ginger. But redhead somewhere there. Possibly dyed another colour. Longish face. Tallish, maybe 5'8? Hourglass shape, or close to. Feminine clothes, but not skimpy - classy. And your biggest assets are your breasts and your sense of humour. (See what I did there? :p: )

Am I close?


Edit: Mrgd291190 - on reading your post, until I saw your gender above, I thought you were a girl Sorry!

Reminded of another habit of mine. Like with nuttygirl - her real name (peeked at her profile :ninja:) is the same as someone I know, so, logically, both of them look exactly the same.

Actually...I know two people with that name and they both look like total opposites...
