I'm curious - why do all of you pretty ladies take 'selfies' (man, I hate that word...)? I've noticed quite a few attractive females with 'selfies' as their profile pic... I mean, if you're hot, it shouldn't be all that hard for you to find someone to take your pic for you...

It's a lot easier to take a 'selfie' for a profile picture than have someone take your picture.. Js.

Yea but why go through the trouble of going to get someone to take your picture for you for a workout app whn u can just take yourself?

I see what you're saying, but I see it all over social media, hot girls taking tons of selfies - It's like they're crying for attention, but they're good looking so I would think that getting attention in real life shouldn't be a problem for them...
23 Feb
I mean maybe their trying to get attention... people are lonely even ones tht people consider beautiful...or maybe they just enjoy social media or maybe they are just bored..I've never really thought about it... be honest I didn't knw what " selfie" met till I googled it lol
23 Feb
And now I bet you wish you never did google it lol

I dnt knw ... its one of those social things tht I dnt see the big deal about ... I thnk taking pictures is mostly a girl thing around here I mean everytime I turn around girls are taking pics on their phone as well as on digital cameras... of their self of them and their friends... guys jump in the pics or they take a pic of thm but I thnk its a girl thing... anyway doesn't it sound more desperate to go around asking people to take a pic everytime you wanted to take a pic of yourself?...
23 Feb
Yeah, you have a point there

Terry I enjoy taking a selfie because I like seeing progress and I am lonely. So I have no one to take a pic with. 100% being honest!

23 Feb
Aww, and you're such a nice girl - I'd take your pic for you
23 Feb
Awww thank you darling. :)

Honesly most of the time I look better in my selfies than in a picture someone else has taken of me.

Yeah, I don't have anyone to take a photo of me.. Usually my selfies are the product of myself with nothing to do.. That sounds vain but I'm not I just.. Erghh idk. 
But like Marushke said, most of the time I have a better chance at looking decent in a selfie than in a photo someone else has taken of me aha!

Haha "oh i'm bored now. What should I do? Oh now I know!!!! #selfietime"

I volunteer to be your personal photographer - when do I start? Lol

So Christian if you're making fun of me go right ahead if it makes you feel good. I actually sometimes just feel like doing my hair and makeup and taking selfies when I'm bored, it's a girl thing (reminiscent of my gymnastic/dance past and acting present. One thing I do contest is the stereotype of # .. I don't speak in hashtags, I consider myself to have a rather diverse and usually non colloquial vocabulary, so I tend not to speak in # unless I'm half heartedly making fun of people who speak that way.

Someone's feisty - I like a woman with some fire and aggression ;)
24 Feb
Yeah I'm full of passion and aggression I'll admit, but this was a more complacent rant against the injustice of being stereotyped. I HATE BEING STEREOTYPED oh my gophers! Haha I'm not angry, I tend to save my anger for things worthy of it.. so I'm not raging please don't misunderstand!

People don't have patience to take the photo the way I want it. Btw my default picture was taken by my three year old niece, just captured a very intresting moment and pose.

Mmmm..... I hated pics of myself period and someone told me to start taking a "selfie" everytime I felt good about how I looked. Huge confidence boost( which is hard for me to have) but at the same time my nine year can't take a good pic. Lol. So its up to me!

You have a 9 year old? Wow, you look really young yourself
07 Mar

I have alot of selfies but i have a few different reasons first i think my best photos are the ones i take myself  and i feel awkward and goofy and last time someone took a picture of me it turned out horrible im not super heavy set but the angle they took it at made me look like i had several chins. So its easier to take myself as well as sometimes im bored and just take random goofy pics.

10 years ago no one would want to take a "selfie" because it felt...wierd...

Look at it now! It's all the rage! :)

I don't take a lot of selfies because I do have a friend that takes pictures but when I do,  it's because I am wearing a particularly cute outfit that day and want to preserve it before I go out

Well the term selfie has just been recently made popular (I hate it too lol) but idk it just seems easier and being a girl I know we're oicky about how we look in our pictures, its easier to take more than one of yourself than make someone else constantly retake it ;) btw, your profile pic is a selfie lol ((;

It's pretty fun actually. And it's easier. I don't take them daily but once in a while is fun & just kinda silly

Op has demonstrated something that pickup artists call a neg. it's a complement burried in an insult so that the lady on the other end feels as if the pick up artist is superior to her. Well done op.
