    So one compliment that I have received lately is that I look better /hotter in person than I do in my pictures. While I do find it frustrating when on sites like this, I do take the compliment pretty well.

    Do you guys find that the same holds for you? What about for those of you who are the opposite, how do you feel about the whole shindig?

    Oh, yeah. This happens so often.

    Though, with rare exceptions, I find you can rarely gauge true attractiveness from a photo. There's so much more to attraction than looks... especially one look, out of context, and frozen for eternity.

    I don't know. People never tell me in person, I only get compliments from pictures. So I guess it's the opposite for me. Though I'd rather be better looking in person.

    Absolutely. I'm a total stunner. It's just that my pics don't do me justice.

    A lot of people tell me, "wow, you look just like your pix!"
    Which must mean to say that most people either use old photos or chose the ones that make them look better... or of course a little pixieshop helping out those wrinkles and lovehandles.

    Dude, I call bullshit on this one. You're definitely photogenic. If you'd chill in your photos without striking a pose, you'd be a model.

    See, I've had people who don't give me the time of day on the Net, but in person if I run into them they are quite open to talk.

    I blame my complete lack of photogeneity.

    every single man that I've met has looked far better in person than in their pics. So if you look really good in your pics, you look incredible in person. and some guys that I've met that didn't look good in their pics, turned out to look incredible in person. So you can't really a judge a book by its cover, until you meet.

    People from different websites told me this as well. I guess it depends on who takes my pics. Some friends of mine and cameras are more in tune with capturing the moment with better shots than others, I can say that!

    I've been complimented in past online and off...

    However, I really don't find myself photogenic. Like I'll have some photos that turn out great while 2/3 do not turn out well. One thing that I really hate is how red my face looks on all pics.

    Also... When I take pictures and look in the mirror I feel like I look quite different. Does anyone else see themselves same way? Which one is more deceiving?

    I think I look better in my pictures than I do in person.
