...or that their face looks different/weird/crooked in pictures or on video, I hope this thread is helpful. I didn't used to think this of myself, but the older I've gotten, the more problems I have with the way my face looks on camera. I'm confident with the way I look in the mirror, but then when I see pictures of myself I'm shocked at how weird I look. It's really disturbing. I began to question if this was really how the world saw me and it made me doubt my attractiveness. So I did a little bit of thinking and research, and things are not really what they seem. You get so accustomed to looking at yourself in reverse (in a mirror), that seeing yourself the way the rest of the world does is a little jarring. It's not that your face is crooked (well, actually, everyone's face is a little crooked; no one is perfectly symmetrical), it's just that you're so used to seeing the subtle asymmetry from the opposite direction (your reverse perspective in the mirror). To everyone else, your face looks completely fine. You just think you look weird because it's completely opposite of what you're used to. I think I'm noticing it more as I get older because I'm simply getting more used to my "mirror face". Depending how much you look at yourself in the mirror, you might experience this in different intensities. But it's important to understand that people don't see you this way. Here's a great example I found online: As you can see, this is a good looking dude. Between pics 1 and 2, you can see the differences, but he still looks fine. Though, if you showed him his anti-"mirror face", he's going to say how weird he looks. When you look at the next 3 pictures, you see that every single feature he has isn't symmetrical. When he sees his picture from a complete opposite perspective (flipped), these features are going to be disturbingly glaring to him, but we will still think everything looks normal. So I guess the thing to take away from this is stop worrying how people see you. They will always see you much better than you see yourself.
