Updated: Jan 25, 2022

I know what you're thinking, "It's just a profile picture on some dating site, it's no big deal", or "I have no good photos of me", or "I look like an idiot when I smile in photos". I hear ya, but I'm also here to tell you that those are just excuses and a whole lot of laziness.
