What Does Your Computer Avatar Say about Your Personality?

An avatar is a real life digital photo or any graphic image (cartoon or otherwise) used to create an alter ego—an image or illustration meant to represent you.

I had a few good date nights this week which I totally needed before my self esteem goes down the tube. I just can't seem to close a deal over the tele-cellie these days.
