Not photogenic, or just ugly?

I've heard many people say how they simply do not look good in photos.

Ok, so you look GREAT in real life, but when you see a picture of yourself, somehow technology has failed somewhere between taking the actual picture and putting it on a photo? It's the camera's fault, not you, who looks as if you ran through the ugly forest and smacked face-first into every tree.

Who should give them the news?

As one of the beautiful people, I can't talk to the uglies. Sorry I can't be more help.

Sometimes I am walking past a plate glass window, and I will realize that the reflection that I am seeing is ME! Shocked

I think that people have an image of themselves, which may or may not be too consonant with reality.

(Then again, a three "D" image, superimposed on a 2 "D" picture, does tend to make one look heavier! Laughing )

That's weird...I've always had people tell me I'm very photogenic. When I look at same photo I think....."eeessssshhhh!"

So I guess I'm uglier than I thought, if I supposedly look better in pictures.



I think you should have the job of telling people slappy, since you come across as so sincere.

I think the whole thing is just funny.

Even though in reality it probably somewhat holds true. There are certain pictures of my ex where I thought she looked better than in real life, than other pictures that were more "realistic." Then a girl I've been dating is absolutely gorgeous and gets hit on while I'm f'n with her, while she just looks average in some pictures.

Either way, I'll be sure to tell people the news after hearing how they're just not photogenic.

You do have to admit I'm pretty photogenic though, don't you?

Whenever I see pics of my friends they look exactly how I see them, but then i see myself and I cant believe its me.
i see me more than I see them but Im the one who is shocked by how I look!!
Cameras should be banned or have some kind of magical beauty filter added on.

Confession: when I was a kid I had a tail. Like a mullet cut into a thin little....piece of stupidity.

MG, if you have a hair cut that resembles anything like a mullet, and you're a female, that could explain a lot. I'd invest the $$ into going to a real hair stylist and getting that little problem fixed.

ohhhhhh mg....say you don't have a mullet.




my hair finally got long enough to correct the butcher job I had months ago....so I went to get a new 'do yestiddy.

I knew I'd get a really cool look because the stylist was like 24 and had nose rings and tattos and everything....

She told me when she first started she had this guy who had a major severe mullet, and he said she was the only one who could do it right.

She always felt embarrassed when he came in because it made the whole shop (and her) look bad..like that's all she could do.

Everyone teased her and called this guy her "return mullet customer"

Anyway, now I have a really great cut (NOT a mullet).

Bald guys with mullets have a certain look of distinction.

Yes. They distinctively look like they should be punched in the face.

Its shorter on top then long, but its all layered and very modern.Please think Tony and Guy not Trailer and Trash.

Slappy I wanted a tail (like a rats tail bit of hair at the back of a short haircut)when I was about 12, so glad i didnt get one.A girl I knew got one I thought it looked so cool, now i just realise it was very 80's

Chai and Slappy, please dont ever breed.
