    Flash in dark places really ruins photos. It's one of the problems with nowadays digital cameras that I really hate. However, the photo does seem nice. And she seems quite nice. Congratulations to you both.

    ..... I see a lot of girls who are more than overzealous into trying "illuminating" an already lighted environment. You need examples, what the fuck?

    As I've said, it wasn't personal, just a general rant.

    flash is great as long as it's used well. and by used well, i mean an external flashgun with a diffuser, ideally bouncing off something or being used off camera.

    the only thing I can think of is intentionally making the flash so bright that you can't see skin blemishes, or anything else for that matter, which is dumb

    except it still doesnt make sense because 99.999% of the time flash just makes you look awful

    perhaps you're thinking of girls using filters/photoediting in photoshop to try to make themselves look better, ive never heard of them using flash to do it

    Yeah, I think he's referring to the tendency to over contrast things and wash out their faces. That trend is annoying. Looks stupid anyway.

    Met a girl on Omegle that lives in California, i showed her my abs and she liked it and her face went like ":O!!!!" and she gave me her number. Now she says she wants to meet me and date me and she wants to fuck.

    She says she thinks im cute, and i think she's cute too.

    the fuck man.

    Is she for real? And yes, she is real, and not a gif. I talked to her.

    She lives like an hour away.

    I'd say don't rush things. Take your time, don't appear as if this is something that doesn't happen everyday. You'll benefit from this, trust me.

    Talk to her on the phone and see if she's authentic enough. I usually don't drive for women, personal preference, no particular law between those lines. If you want to... then have a blast.

    Also, as you know, this is the internet. Be weary.

    Yea i won't rush. But what's puzzling me is that SHE is rushing. She already wants to date. I'm pretty sure she interacted with all the stuff i did or said.

    ....No I wasn't. That's just over-exposing the picture using flash. You find this disgusting as I do, good. But still, people, whether you like it or not, use this method to hide the imperfections on their faces. How is this hard to grasp?

    I wasn't saying it makes women look good... I said, quote, "Flash is an intentional instrument in this age of low self-esteem".... do the two paragraphs together make sense now ?

    i'm saying it mostly based on the way you type. i don't know if it's the way you've learnt english, or how the sentence structure compares to your mother tongue (which i'm guessing is hebrew?), but if it's just you attempting to sound more intellectual by using long words then i would suggest you stop, because you're not getting it quite right and a lot of the time it leaves people wondering "what the heck is he trying to say??"

    also you come across as having a much higher opinion of yourself than most of the people that are regulars in here, and that doesn't bode well for someone that (as far as i know) hasn't been active in these threads much before now. some things you say are valid, but you say them in a way that people either a) don't understand you or b) think you're being a dick.

    so my suggestions to you are:

    1. work on your sentence structure
    2. have a little more respect for the posters in here

    i'm trying to tell you that using flash hardly hides imperfections on faces. have you ever taken a picture with flash? it quite often makes them glaringly obvious, and i've never seen a girl use it like that. the sentence you wrote would make more sense as "Photoshop is an intentional instrument in this age of low self-esteem," although that's still awkwardly written what with the whole "intentional instrument" part which just sounds a little off

    Still, two people understood what I had in mind. This doesn't matter, I think you understand me by now.

    It's not 1, as I am intentionally writing this way. I express emotions using English's rich selection of words.

    Respect... hmm. I find it odd people seek respect from those around them in the form of masks. I say things the way I see 'em, with my own personal opinion thrown in the mix. Whether I like it or not, I can't have control over people's thoughts of me, so this absurd notion of "have respect" is... absurd to me.

    Though, I gladly accept the basic terms of speech (being nice, respectful to older that sort of thing) most humans use of course, but I don't see a need to lower myself so that others would feel less insecure around me (Nelson Mandela).

    people talk that way, sure, but there's no need to type out all your pauses and thoughts
    it makes it seem like you think everything that comes out of your mouth (or in this case keyboard) is important enough to jot down

    You control people more than they would like to think with words, influencing someone's opinion of you is a simple matter. Opinions can be expressed in many ways without the need for filtering, it is just a matter of what else your words say.

    A need is irrelevant. Ask yourself what you are trying to accomplish here, would forcing others to be callous to you be helpful? Would you change your message in a way you oversee so it may be accepted or risk others hearing what they want rather than what you want?

    I respect you doing this for a while, but I have to. So what? I don't fling this fact around, I just say what I think. Again, I think this is more of "you disagree with what I say, so you disrespect me. Who are you to say what you say to me?"

    Leaving this aside for a second, I don't care whether I come off as one. I've been coming off as one a lot, doesn't make this true. People hate the truth and that's a fact.

    Finally, I was quoting him, not being him. I don't need to be great in order to quote the great. They're quotes for a reason - to aspire from.

    You should learn from it too. Majority and a sense of bullying the bullies does not change the forceful attitude you mirror. Show respect if you want to gain it.
