Ever met someone PRETTIER than their pics?Page 9 of 10    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10)

I've been told I look better than my pictures...
I hear that a lot, too. I also usually think that those I meet look better in person. As I and others have noted in other topics, very often, animation lends attractiveness - if you want to know what someone really looks like (or what you do!), you have to see the person in motion.

Interesting to see this topic resurrected... spring fever striking early, I wonder?

It's not uncommon for someone to look better ( or worse ) in person than they do in a photo. Some people aren't photogenic. Photos are a 2-D still shot of someone. While humans are obviously 3-D.

Some humans are actually 4-D. And take my word for it, you don't want to go there (the 4th, that is). Especially if "they" happen to be DD, or DDD.

Cheers,

Moose

I've met a fair few people because of the meets and in most cases people look better in real life than in their pics.

There's been the odd one or two who don't but by far the majority do.

Uh-oh. I just noticed that pesky little note up there about "no websites" and "account being deleted" if I don't follow the rules. Hmmm......guess I better go fix that, huh?

Oh well......their loss.......

WOW how disturbing and odd. you really think a woman who looks like a Barbie doll is attractive?? that is just too weird. i don't think women should look like a doll. but that's just me.

Yes, and the most common reason for this is because their profile pic/pics aren't very good.

I'll never understand why some people don't put more effort into their pics.
I'm not just talking about the ones with sunglasses, a zillion miles away, blurry, etc.

I'll see someone's bad pic , for example, and a year later it's still the same !!!!

Wtf ?!!!!

I suppose it must be working for them, somehow....

*scratching head * ......I guess that's just how much of an advantage females have ?

Most people look better in person.


Myself I don't take very good pic's. I'm always told I look better in person.

Yes, I have...

I'd gotten contacted by a nice looking there here very recently.

Her pics looked really good.

We when we met in person for our first date....I almost fell off my chair.

She was an absolute KNOCKOUT...

Only happened to me once. ... My eyes almost went like this ---> . ..... :D he could've passed for a model! .. I was pleasantly surprised to see him be completely humble about it too (maybe thats why he didnt really play up his pics online ... oddly enough, he looked really just like an average joe in it) ... ohh gawwwd he could've almost been the total package . ... I don't think it'll happen again though. :'( ...

It happened so often I started to expect it. Not only were they usually better-looking than their pics, one guy was TALLER than his stated height, by about two inches. What are the odds of that?

I actually had the opposite effect....I was talking to a man and he was so hot on his pics I couldnt wait to meet him.....When I did he was totally you can see was 10 years older than his pics....The funny part he was more reluctant to see me and he fell in love with my appearance at first sight and I WAS MAJORLY NOT HAPPY WITH HIS....

I actually worry about the photo thing sometimes. I look a lot better in photos than I do in real life. So sometimes I feel nervous about meeting someone offline because I won't be what they are expecting. That's why sometimes I have a hard time with the online dating thing. The first meeting is scary.

I've had a few guys who looked a lot better than their pictures though. That's why I don't really judge the pictures anymore. I go by how we connect in the emails.

I met this woman recently who was far better looking than her photo. I guess she didn't want to get a lot of responses due to her physical appearance so she posted a photo that portrayed her as a bit overweight. When I first saw her though, that image went right out the window. I was taken aback by just how physically attractive she is. I think it's a bit deceptive to use an inaccurate photo, but, in her case, it was a nice surprise.

Yeah I met someone recently who looked better than her pics and it was a pleasant surprise. As for me, people say I look better than my pics which should be the case since I purposely do that. I figure if you like my pics and I look a little better in person, that's a lot better than my pics looking good and me not being good looking.

My experiences have been... men almost always look better then their pictures.

I however, look the same.... simply because I post realistically.
I have one posted right after I woke up.... How many women do you know that are willing to do that???

almost every woman i've met has looked better than her photos, some vastly. why? because it's much more difficult to take a good photo than a poor one. that's why people who can really work a camera can charge for it.
