Not to encourage judging books by their covers or anything (or vise versa in this case perhaps) but I was curious to know if people on here look how you imagined them too? Of course a lot of us have each other on social media or have at least seen a picture etc so I'm hoping some discussion can be had.

Even if you don't have a clue what anyone looks like, how do you picture them at least? ohmy.gif

I defo kinda let people's signatures and avatars inspire a lot of how I imagine them to be even if I know for a fact it's not them in either laugh.gif

Yeah I've seen a few members on here and they don't look anything like I imagined them to. Not that it's a bad thing but I'm always pleasantly surprised by the difference in what I assume vs what actually is reality.

I usually just assume people are like their avatars. Which has sometimes made me forget some male members aren't female. unsure.gif

I know it's perhaps stupid but I can't help but imagine a user looks like the person in their avatar for some reason laugh.gif (if ONLY I was as cute as Mr. Young), I think there's some kind of science behind it, like you might like the look of someone based on their facial structure or hair and in many cases that's because they might resemble yourself in some ways... idk lol laugh.gif

Also there's things like wide age gaps, and posting styles can also help you conjure up a face of the poster but I of course haven't correctly predicted what people look like (or even their age, or sex?) based on their posts/associated images alone.

I thought there was a surprising number of females on here too at first, until I found out they were gay laugh.gif

There are a few examples actually where I do think of a poster as looking like their avatar/signature even though I know they don't. For example I just pictured ML Hammer like his Wretch 32 signature but of course they look nothing alike as I now know laugh.gif It's that familiarity I guess before you actually know what the poster looks like.

I've been pretty open about what I look like on here since I joined, so I'd be surprised if anyone has ever pictured me as my Gaga avatar!

I look like my avatar, mainly because it's supposed to be a chibified version of myself.

No I'm not black! If anything I look like a Bristolian yob. laugh.gif My music taste doesn't help that perception either.

Some people here didn't look like I thought they would.

I always knew who was male and who was female by the symbols.

Aquamaqueesha is the only exception. I never know whether to use he or she to refer to Aqua or Toby as they had a male symbol before as Toby.

Don't people use the word 'they' to refer to an unknown gender?

I will.refer to.Aquamaqueesha as 'she' as there is a female symbol (despite Toby being male and all)

I wonder what do.you look like, does your whole face look like it has been spun in a specific direction or is it symmetrical? ohmy.gif
