Why You Lie: We all know others judge us on our looks (and hello, we do it too!), so it makes sense to want to put your most photogenic foot forward, so to speak. However, old, photoshopped, strategically cropped or otherwise enhanced images are false advertising -- plain and simple. (And since you are doing this ostensibly to meet someone in person, you won’t pull this lie off for long.)
Try This Instead: Email your closest friends (including the male ones!) and ask them to pick a few pictures off of your Facebook page that make you look best. It's okay to include the best photo of you ever taken, but make sure it still looks like you! Try to pick a recent shot -- and not one from when you put on a Farrah Fawcett wig for a 70s-themed party. Finally, remember to crop yourself out in group photos, so no potential dates are confused by your friend who happens to be a blue-eyed brunette, like you.
