Is it OK to Photoshop My Profile Picture?

Bethany Heinesh Bethany Heinesh • 9/25/14

Ladies, while it might be tempting to Photoshop your pictures and make dramatic changes to your appearance, don’t do it. Too many women these days are altering and posting pictures to their online profile to make themselves look better in hopes that such a move will increase their chances to land a date.

The last thing you want to do is start off any relationship with deception. You may be unhappy with your weight and want to look thinner, or maybe you hate your nose, or perhaps you have a mole you dislike, but Photoshop isn’t going to change that.

When he finally meets you and sees the real you, he’s going to feel like he was conned and he’ll never call you again. Besides, you want someone to love you for you – fabulous flaws and all!

Now, if you have some great pic that includes a giant blemish on your chin, or you want to crop out an ex, I see no harm in Photoshopping such minor details.
