I think I have a mild case of reverse body dysmorphic disorder where I think i look much better than i actually do - I dont think i am "miss thing" but in a mirror I look acceptable and in a photo I ming bigly
Why are people with cameras really very aggressive and never take no for an answer
i hate having my photo taken, and thats the only thing im really sad about..... i have hardly ANY photos of me with Jess, and now she's almost a year, i look back and think people will think she only has a daddy!
You know I was considering starting the exact same thread earlier! How strange. I hate having my photo taken. In normal life I can convince myself I am not a total minger, use loads of make up etc. Then I see a photo and realise that I don't know why I bother. I look terrible and it makes me feel very sad.
An ex friend of mine took a photo of me and him. Four months (I estimate) later, I discover he has posted it on his website and I felt mildly violated. I am sure I would not have minded had I looked OK in it but as it was a shocking close up, it was most distressing for me.
How shallow of me
I am v glad I am not alone in this.
I hate it too. In my head I'm reasonably presentable - in pictures I am a complete horse-frightener. I have no photos of myself with ds, not one, and I actually cried when I saw my wedding video because I looked so bloody awful.
The worst thing is when people say 'Oh, but that's a really nice one of you.' WTF? So that's me looking good is it?
Snafu _ I so know what you mean. You know a really awful passport photo most people have for their work ID? Well I had a truely awful one. A girl I knew looked at it and declared me photogenic!! OMG - You mean I look even worse?
same here hate pic being taken and am only on about 3% of all the pics we own...and half that is probably wedding pics. DH always moans about this so last year when ds tots group did the xmas pics i had one pic taken with ds which dh loves and it is actually one of the better pics of me eso cis ds is sat in front of me...lol
