I know not everyone on here is hot and i don't have low standards.. It's actually hard for me to find people "attractive" in real life but ever since i joined this site i've been getting mini crushes on so many guys and girls (i'm bisexual) with their pictures up. The weird thing is many of the hot people on here are single like WTF. Their is also some really intelligent people on here but i'm too shy to talk to anyone. Why is this lmfao? And all the guys and girls at my school look like crusty potatoes !!
Because in real life you see them as they really are. Online people sometimes search through hundreds of photos and search for the one that makes them look their best. Often those photos are even touched up and makes them look better than they really do. Others are even using other peoples photos, for some reason.
I think people are generally more attractive online, and a lot of it is angles and other shit. If I took a picture at an unflattering angle I'm not gonna use that, I'm gonna use a picture that makes me look good haha. You also prob get the more extreme end where people photoshop their pics whether to remove flaws etc. I've seen in the HDIL section backgrounds are warped around girls asses/hips/wastelines and more than once. I think people will take the attention whether it's a true reflection of themselves or not. I've also seen lots of catfish call outs too. You never know what's real on the interwebs.
Typically the only types of people who would put pics up on a random forum site are people who are hot and looking for either 1) validation, 2) confirmation or 3) attention. Now this is not always the case before people rip my head off. But a lot of the "am i attractive" ones are girls who must clearly recognise they are attractive so seem to only be doing it out of a wanting people to call them attractive.
I'm also pretty picky with the people I like. Their faces, anyway. Maybe only the people who know they're attractive post images of themselves. I have no idea (just started an hour ago), but that might be it.
