I fell in that obsession too, but now i'm cured :P. So i going to write my story, and maybe someone else can stop his own obsession too.
I entered here without knowing anyone, so without fans. Because of this all my first looks have 0 hypes, and I feel really bad with this, so I started to want some attention. Then i started to post in those kind of topic like "please hype me" and things like that.
Until i stopped and think.
I never entered this site to get hypes or become popular. I came here to inspire myself with all this amazing looks, that I can see day after day.
But this is the curious part, when I noticed that, i started to get inspired and the consequence was that I started to improve my pictures. Since then, the hypes came alone (well, no loooots of hypes, but fine for me)
Conclusion: forget about the hypes, stop create topics like "hype me" and things like that. Just get inspired... are amazing looks here, enjoy it.
