Why do I look good in mirror but not pictures?Page 3 of 3    (1, 2, 3)
Ok original Poster I have met a lot of men on the dating site who defintely looked better in person than in their photo.. I would say 99% look better in person than in their photo. And they with out fail and no prodding from me tell me that I look better in person than my photo. I usually don't take good photos..

I think you are seeing the real person.. when you look in a mirror..

Photos don't catch the person very well..

Thats what FRIENDS are for. You do have friends, don't you?
Go out and do some of the things that you like doing, or that you'd imagine doing on a date. Sit at an outdoor cafe,
Stand by something that represents what you like to do.
Have your friend take pictures of you!! Take lots of them, and sort through for the best.

Besides, I just hate those 'bathroom mirror' pics.

Why not take a picture of the mirror? That way you get the best of both worlds :)

It has to do with the lighting.

No reflection on you, of course.

LOL @ James ^

Real humans are not two-dimensional. It is impossible to convey three dimensions on paper which is why nobody looks much like a photo.
