    Some mirrors are kind, some are mean. But most of the time they make me feel better.

    the mirror is a reflected image which is what youre used to, but photos are the opposite if that makes sense, so its look weird; i definately prefer the mirror

    You're vain. And probably ugly too.
    i love it when people hide behind anon to post mean comments. why not just do it on your regular username? it's actually sad that there are certain nerds who are afraid of getting neg repped on TSR, get a life

    I really don't know. I look good in one specific mirror, just about OK in another and crap in brightly lit mirrors. In photos, I can see some resembalance to the way I look in the "OK" mirror whereas on my webcam, I look most similar to the "good" mirror IMO. It's confusing.

    This exactly You are used to your mirror image but photos represent how others actually see you.

    I believe neither, every time im in a picture, or even in my reflection some ugly fat kid appears. Yet i know for a fact i am the spitting image of Keira Knightley in real life.

    Well the mirror is how you see yourself.
    And the camera is how others see you.
    In the mirror I usually look good.
    And in pictures I usually look good (although I think it depends on the camera because in my one friend's pictures I always look terrible)

    The camera makes me look and the mirror makes me look Which one do you believe more for yourself and why?
    I agree with how each makes you feel, I am the same.

    But I think the camera is most accurate.

    Mirror. I manage to give myself a double chin in almost every photo I 'pose' for, I don't understand how it happens. I have to try quite hard to do it when I try in the mirror :/.

    In middle school, I was in front of the toilet mirror with a friend and she said 'WOW, It's weird how much better your reflection looks'. I've been a paranoid mess ever since
