This might sound shallow on my part, but anyways for those of you who have used dating sites like myself, have you ever met a person who lied about their weight saying they're average or athletic and for their pictures they are either at an angle where you can only see their face or its from an upward angle or they are a few years old, then once you meet them they are fatter or look completely different?
This has happened to me a bunch of times. Sometimes I'll see girls that look really thin in pictures or just average and then I'll either talk to them on Facebook or meet them in person and they balloon up. It almost makes me feel like an ass because I don't wanna call them out on it and make it seem like appearance is all I care about. Now I don't think women or men should be judged on appearance alone though you can't hide that stuff if you're planning on meeting in person.
To be fair, it'd be like me taking only mugshots or pictures at angles and saying or trying to make myself look athletic and say I'm a bodybuilder but I'm just very tall and skinny. There also was a time where I met a girl who was kinda chubby but had a nice face. Only difference was I knew what was coming and she was honest about it.
In this south park episode I watched with kim kardashian and kanye west, the episode was pretty much about how models photoshop and airbrush photos to give this ideal unrealistic image. In a way I kinda feel its the same thing when you use misleading photos. People will care more for the image than the real thing. I don't manipulate photos because you either like what I have or you don't.
Anyways for girls, how often do guys do this on dating sites? I'm curious as well.
Most Helpful Girl
I haven't meet a lot of guys but I don't think guys do that as much. When I was online dating sites I always was very truthfully about myself and because I rather be honest and meet someone who already knows how big I am beforehand this way I don't have to worry about what they might think of me otherwise. If I tell you I'm a bigger girl to start then I know that maybe your actually interested in bigger women and wanting to hopefully get to know me. I always say I'm a BBW.1
