do you look like your pictures?Page 3 of 26    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26)
I certainly do, and I have been told that I do look better in person! Never get tired of hearing that!!

I have always found it interesting how you perceive a person to look based on the photos they have posted, and how they actually look in person. Since the pictures can't show height, the way they carry themselves, etc. it's amazing at times how different people can be in person, even when the pictures they have shown you are current. Did that make any sense???

And unfortunately I too have met people that have posted out of date photos, which has never proven to be a good experience.

Yes I do. I purposely have pics of me doing different expressions or angles so when I meet someone there will be no surprises.

I do also want to note something I've found. A few of the guys I met who were the best looking in person had bad/not so good profile photos (grainy, blurry or taken from too far away). But you could tell from the pics that they weren't really disgusting looking. But I wasn't prepared for how much hotter they were in person.

I think I look EXACTLY like my pictures, and the only comment I've heard (twice) was that I looked better (which I think is puppydoo)...everyone sees something different in a photo anyway....

I've only been on here a short time and I've updated my photos three times. Why would you want to post an old picture? If you're that insecure about your current looks, do something about it. If you're looking for someone that doesn't care what you look like, then don't post a picture.

I have a hard time convincing people that I'm 33yrs old sometimes but I don't lie about my age. I look young for my age; I only hope I have this problem when I'm fifty.

You can never be sure if you look exactly like your picture when you meet new people. The lighting, time of year or maybe your just a little puffy one day, can play a big part when you actually meet someone.

B/W vs. Color photos is also an issue... I'm going to try posting both soon...

I hate my pics. People say I look better in person. The ugly lens always comes up when I get my picture taken.

well my pics are all within 4 months, the one on my profile is vague as I choose it to be, other pictures posted have been seasonal, for fun showing personality, one picture in particular was definitely me looking like me. Those that know me have seen real, current pictures that I send in emails that are not cloudy or vague.

I've been told that I look like my pictures... I guess that is a compliment, I haven't scared animals or children off (yet), nor have I posed in Playboy or Cosmo lately... I'm just average "Sue"

I look just like my pics...took em two days ago!...I have to say I've only met a few people on here in the flesh (and most at a recent POF party) and they ALL looked better in person! Pics only show one side of you...you see the expression in real life...and let's face it..when a smile is directed at YOU and not a camera...it's so much nicer!

All my photos were taken last year from spring to fall...
I will take more this year and replace the older ones...
I think it is only fair that we keep our photos up to date...
It is only fair and honest in my opinion...
GOOD LUCK & have fun

I look exactly like what I do in my pictures. You hear of too many horror stories where people put up fake pictures and the other person is like "what the hell!" All real here!

Wow, this thread is proving the #1 complaint about internet dating TOTALLY wrong - that most people do not look like their pictures!

Apparently, everyone either looks exactly like or better than their pictures.

What planet are all those OTHER people from??

Why do I think we'd see a very differnet response if the title of this thread was "how many of your DATES have looked like their pictures?"

Yes, I look like my pictures.

I think that outdoor pictures would look the best. I'd feel like an idiot holding the camera outside and taking a picture of myself. I don't really like blinding myself with the camera's flash multiple times while indoors. My camera's flash and I need to spend some quality time together...back to the drawing board.
