    So this guy runs across my profile and sees my pics....Later, he sees me in person at the clubs and proceeds to tell me that my body pics on this site are not mine. He says that in real life i am much skinnier than the pics on my profile and asked if my pics were cropped.

    I just said, "ok dude, whatever" wanted to punch some hoes but decided to simply walk away. Have you ever heard this before and if so how did you react? Are these blokes just plain haters?

    Pictures without context can be misleading.


    Objects with a somewhat universal size juxtaposed with the person in question (Ceiling, car, a group of people) help us to judge how large this person really is.

    I would guess that some people look at a picture and assume you are larger or smaller than you are because there is nothing within the frame to compare you to.

    Perhaps if this guy had read your weight (145), he would know that your frame is "small".

    I find most people I have met in person look thinner in person.

    I always cam with guys before I meet them (if i'm talking to them online). So there's no weird surprises. Won't do it any other way with online connections.

    I'd be creeped out a bit if someone came up to me and said "You look thinner than your photos." Of all things that could be said...

    i think certain lenses in cameras make people look slightly bigger than reality.

    So then he must be right I guess? I must be skinny and scrawny.

    I've always heard that the camera adds 10 pounds. icon_wink.gif
