All the boys I've come across in real life, look decent, then I go on their instagrams and they look worse in the photos. Also the same for youtube videos. I see a male youtuber, go on their instagram profiles and find that they look worse in the pictures than in the video. It's not even just a little bit worse, it's almost like 2 different people. Are boys just **** at taking photos of themselves

I think because there’s more time to judge.
If you saw a guy in person, you’re not really going to be evaluating him as you’d do with pictures.

I would also say it depends on the guy. Some guys genuinely just can’t take pictures.

Many guys are not photogenic, don't understand the importance of good lighting and never use filters or any photo-editing tools.
Same applies to some girls.

Why does it matter as long as they look 'decent' in real life?

Problem with this is, when they do know how to take good pics, people (speaking in generalised terms here) automatically think they're gay/bisexual.

tbh i feel like the people that judge men for "acting gay" are other men. and men clearly care more about the approval of other men than women lmaooo.

I think the camera honestly hates me.
not saying i'm male model material or anything but I definitely think I look better IRL than in photos..

Yeah I know it doesn't matter, just a random observation I've made
