scammer or not?

I've been contacted on Y! P from a "supposed" 55 year old man (I am 39). My age limit is 44, but I'm giving him a reluctant shot.
The other day, I asked him if he would post more photos of himself (there's currently only one posted). So, I receive an email from him stating that he had difficulty in posting one up, that he's not tech savvy. So, I'm like to myself, "Dude, you were able to post one up to your profile. How did you manage that one and now, unable to upload another?"
He also emailed me his personal email address and suggested maybe he could attach the photo through there. Um, no, I don't think so because one, I don't want a possible virus. Two, the directions on how to attach a photo are basically the same for almost every type of computer application.
From what he's written, he doesn't sound like a "scammer", but I don't know. He really hasn't shown the obvious signs of one, but the difficulty of uploading a photo is making me suspicious. I'm thinking he has to be much older than the photo he has currently up.
Any thoughts? And if my reluctance grows even more, how do I back out of this? I do not want to ghost on the man (I'm not that type of lady to do something like that - I think it's a mean thing to do and I've had my share of ghosting from men).
