|Peter finally meets MJ after putting it off for a while, because he assumed she wasn't pretty.|
Well this is a first. The shadchan told me the girl asked me for a picture. I've never heard of something like this. Heck, I think it's rude to ask for a girls picture, despite how accepted it seems to be, and that's why I don't do so (though I will admit I sometimes to an internet search, and even if the picture is not to my taste, I'll sometimes still go out to with the girl as pictures are not always accurate). I thought about it, and about double standards, and I decided to send a picture of myself. It's only fair, if guys have the option, girls should too. And I also feel this girl may be somewhat of a disadvantage as I know a decent amount about her including not only how she looks, but a wide array of similar interests we have (word of advice, if your name isn't common, don't use your real name in your blog or youtube or twitter or whatever unless you want people to find it) while she knows next to nothing about me, including how I look. So I figure, what could be the harm? True, if she says no after seeing my picture, my ego may take a hit, but as Calvin's dad says, it builds character. And then maybe I'd be better able to relate to what you girls may sometimes unfortunately go through. At least I'm doing my part, and if she says no, well that's her loss.
