I went to a POF party last night at the Yucatan in Coppell and three men told me I looked exactly like my profile photo and two told me I didn't look anything at all like my pictures.
So, I guess three out of five times, I look like my picture?

I am in the same boat Ms. Cutie Pie Face! Every man I've ever met from an online dating site has always said I am more beautiful in person than my pictures. And I've always felt like you - would rather have them feeling excited once they meet me than to be disappointed.

I've met men that have looked better and worse than their photos. I do my best to get to know the person via email, phone then meet before I rule them out or in... It seems you can learn alot about someone just by talking on the phone and then the real test comes when you meet them in person. Let's face it, I've met some really incredible looking men and when I met them - their personality, bad manners, body/breathe odors just were too much - even if they are cute by society's standards.

I hope that someone gets to know me - and not just take a photo as their one and only judgment!

100% just like my pic, but I think the live version is better. Its normally the other way around, I think. I have meet girls that look way worse than their picture. I tell them that they never mentioned anything about a train wreck before.

Actually I have dyed my hair, I got tired of the grey look. But basically I do look like my pictures. I have been told many times that I don't look my age in person, however. I do know that some people do not take very good photos, and some do. And those who use an older photo, well to me that constitutes a lack of planning.

I look like my pictures. I hate answering "body type". I have avg on mine because where I live I am better than avg. A few extra pounds might be more accurate but then whose to say what a few extra pounds are. To some 10 pounds could be a few extra pounds, while to others, 30 pounds could be. Besides, to me it's what is on the inside that counts and with that in mind...I am a hell of a nice woman...LOL

LoL...I ask myself that all the time. I've been on a few dates and I actually had to pull out my cell phone and debate the diffence in the picture and what I was looking. Finally the joker admitted to the picture being about 5 yrs old. Looked more like 10 to me. Some get a lil offended when you ask but those are the ones that have no up-to-date pictures posted. All of my pictures are recent and taken within the last 60 days.

Good topic..

I personally would like to believe, that people are generally honest... and "the camera doesn't lie"... of course with the advent of computer graphics and editing programs... "people" can do just about anything with a photograph.... although I have not discovered the "make me thin tool" on Photoshop yet! HA!

However, I think the real question in my mind is: WHY on Earth would they do that?... knowing that at some point they may meet the party of the second part in person. And WHY would they consider entering in upon a potential relationship... starting with "a lie", for all practical purposes? Either by photo shopping a pic or putting up a 10-15-20 year old photo and saying it is current...

WELL? I hate to say it, but I have experienced this sort of thing first hand, live and in person on several occasions... whereby, they person I agreed to meet... turned out to be NOT AS ADVERTISED. WHAT did they think the reaction was going to be? Jeesh!

All I can say is... I was disappointed, but... was a gentleman about it... followed thru on the meet and greet... was cordial... had the dinner, had the drink... and then parted company. Guess what... said person... did not get a follow up message, other than... thanks but no thanks.

Continuing along the lines of this photo thing... I also think that the "body type" check box... descriptor, whatever, really turns out to be "relative"... In so far as it is relative to the persons OWN perception of their self, and relative to all the other people in their local area, region, whatever. They compare them self to everyone else around them... Average may mean... 5-4 and 200 pounds... because where they live... the norm, is 5-4 200 pound women everywhere. Somewhere else in the country... or state... "average" may indicate 5-4 and 125 pounds... So who KNOWS?

SO... guess what... I have ONE pic posted that is from 1999... yep 1999... the others are either June 2009 or June 2010... now y'all go decide which one is from last century. I look like my pics... 5-9, 155-160 pounds... no pot belly. Long hair... Sometimes contacts, sometimes glasses... Beard or a Van Dyke... depending on my mood and if the razor gets out of control that day... LOL! Why do I have one 10 year old pic posted you ask? One reason... so when someone is talking with me... I can bring up that very issue (prior to meeting)... and be able to say... "SEE... I have barely changed (if at all) in a decade"... and On a couple of occasions... me doing so... has actually ferreted out, some of the would be Con-Women, or deceitful ones.

There ya have it...

I ran across someone whom I had been conversing with on this site. I was backup person at a fundraiser, checking to see if people needed anything. My friend't boyfriend was sitting across from the fellow I had "met" on here. Yes he looked like his picture. He says, "don't I know you from somewhere." I said, "Yes you do." "Where?" he says. I smiled and said, "I will let you ruminate on it for a while." I didn't leave him hanging long enough. I quoted a line from his last email and he got it. The moral? I look like my picture.

I look like mine. And I try to post recent pics periodically (within the past couple of months). I'm a camera hog, so I usually have plenty of pics to share

Not to sound "full of myself", but I've been told SEVERAL times, by didfferent women that I actually look BETTER in person. They say I look the same... just better somehow. lol

I look like my pictures. Why lie he will find out sooner or later. All the men I have met look like their pictures but truthfully I wasnt that attracted to their pictures. Thought I would give it a try.

I also found this cute dog on the net. It's photo-shopped to cover the big stain on my shirt.
