Yup, taking into consideration the fact that cameras hate me. I kill them regularly, and they return the sentiment. In spades.

Isn't it fortunate that none of my critters care what I look like... the bird hates me no matter what I do, the dogs love me, especially when I have a pocket full of treats.

No I don't look like my picture. My picture looks like Jennifer Lopez, but in real life I look like DemonLeather yes, with moustach and beard and I wonder why women oggling at me with starry eyes and men smirked at me with green envy..

Just add them to facebook to see if they really look like their pictures before you meet. And of course everyone is going to come on hear and say "I look better than my pictures in real life or I look Like my pictures". Besides if you don't look like your pictures it's really pointless because your just setting yourself up for a very awkward situation if you do meet.

All the pics I exhibit are chosen to reveal the plainest, most obvious "me".
I obscure nothing, crop nothing and retouch nothing. What you see, is what you get.

They're pictures. I post "routine" stuff. I figure if you undersell, you can over-deliver. So far ~ that theory has worked well for me personally. JMO

Actually, No. I am an additional 40 pounds, 10 years older (but everyone says I could pass for 35), I only drive past the gym, (but hey that still makes me athletic doesn't it?)
and sometimes I wear a really bad hair piece.
OOPS!!, never mind, that I thought you asked if the men I have met look like their pictures

***Snort***

~OT~ I had pics in my profile when I was single sans make-up, having a reasonably bad hair day. Oddly, those were the pics most liked the most. I guess this is another one of those "in the eyes of the beholder" topics.

I like fat guys, it's not because I am a biotch and a user and I can not afford to buy a Serta, that I sleep in nails inbedded board.

Fat guys are warm on chilly nights, and they are loving...

I look like my pictures ... which have all been taken within the last few months or a year.
Although I have found that the men I have met on POF.... always put up younger versions
of themselves as they are also fibbing about their age! Do they really thing with the internet we aren't going to find out. After all it is starting a potential relationship with a lie. I had one guy I corresponded with for months with a strongly worded profile how he was an ex-marine and a man's man, telling people to be upfront and honest who you are and we had chatted at great lengths to me on this topic. Only to find out he had pictures from 6 years ago before he had stage 4 Cancer and no longer had an athletic body and looked much older. I have worded this in my profile to please post recent pictures and to be upfront who you are. Eventually someone is going to see the difference unless they are BLIND! lol

Yes mostly I hear I look better. I think because in person I smile a lot and I don't like how my smile photographs most the time. I tag all my pics with dates and update monthly or so. The full body one is older around christmas time but I've lost at least 15 lbs since it was taken so it's to the positive not the negative.

My pictures I keep up to date. The problem is the pictures do not show all my wrinkles and sags., so when I meet anyone from online, they say I look 20 years older than my pictures and think I posted 10-20 year old pics.meet. The thing of it is, bc i am 60, most of the men that do mail me, to start with ,are men mostly over 65, and they don't look all that good either, . I cannot figure out how to get my pictures to look exactly how I look I look to others . I suppose I need to post a picture of an 80 year old relative ..lol..maybe if I was lucky enough to meet a person , I would not hear that I posted 20 year old pics..lol..But to hear most of you say you look like your pics, I think that is great. It makes you feel more confident going in to a meet

I took the pics for my profile about a week ago.All the "kids" I grew up with say I don't look much different than when they saw me 40 years ago.I think that they need better glasses! Whenever I meet someone from a site they have no problem spotting me & are somewhat relieved that my pic isn't from 10 or 20 years ago.

Why do guys post pics of their bikes, cars or dog? No pic of them!!
Even if I am not interested, I always send a message saying "Is it your bike/car or dog that is looking for a date?" lol

It's never come up, but I think my pictures are pretty accurate. Though I did find it weird when the last girl I met from a dating site seemed surprised at the fact I have long hair. Should've been obvious from my pics.

I always get "wow your beautiful more pretty than your pic" but I do look like my pics tho, Men do tell me women seem to put old pics of themselves up.
I always ask for a recent pic from a man if we are going to meet.
So far they look like their pic.
