Share the Story of Your Life with Photos

26. March 2012 by Dasha 0 Comments

They say a photo is worth a 1,000 words. However, when it comes to international romances - where language barriers and miscommunications are common – photos can be worth even more. If you’re struggling for conversation ideas or ways to get to know a special lady on a deeper level, why not try exchanging photos and stories? You never know what you’ll learn.


Start with conventional photos of family or pets - explaining who’s who and why they’re important to you – and then go from there. Not sure what’s next? Think about your life, both past and present, and then send photos of the people and things that are important to you. This could be photos of your childhood; your days in the military; a memorable concert or a historic event; a beloved hobby like restoring cars, riding motorcycles, or running marathons; your neighborhood; your favorite restaurant or bar; your job; your home; your favorite vacation destination, scenic spot, or city locale. The opportunities are endless. Just snap the photo and tell the story behind it. Your special lady will love getting a glimpse into your life and learning more about you.


Though the logistics are up to you, it might also be fun to send your photos on the same day every week, or the same time every day, so your lady will have something to look forward to. If you’re feeling really motivated you might also accept “assignments” from a lady where she requests a photo of something specific and you provide it. Of course, you should also encourage your lady to send pictures and stories as well! Why should she get to have all of fun?


Photos are great conversation pieces and a great way to learn something new about someone special. Instead of relying on the standard email exchange, why not shake things up a bit by sending unique photos and the stories behind them?
