The real question you have to ask yourself is, how much do you want your soon to be date editing their pictures? Because photo finish lets you edit so much, you may not be seeing what your date really looks like. That is the whole point of uploading pictures to these matchmaking sites, so you can see what your date looks like. I am not saying that everyone changes their pictures too much, but I am saying that it does happen. It use to be a lot easier to tell if someone had edited their photo or just put in a photo of someone else. Now with software like photo finish, it is becoming very hard to tell if it is a real person, or just what someone wants to look like. Have we all become consumed with fake looks? Are we so unhappy with ourself that we are willing to change the way we look to try and please someone we have never even seen before?
I do not think that photo finish is all that bad. I think that is was made with the right idea in mind. However I do feel like people took it too far. Instead of editing out their red eyes with this software, they are changing the whole way they look. In fact, sometimes they are changing it so much, that if you were to see the same person on the street you would not even now who it was. People have to learn to stand up for themselves, be happy with who you are. Do not change yourself for anyone, and definitely do not change for someone you have never even met. I know that people do this to get others to come check out their profile, and indeed for the most part, it works. Of course, you are never going to be able to really meet this person, because you changed the way you look. You are not even sure if they like you, or the new photo finish “you.” If you edit your picture, do not change it some much that you do not look like yourself. Use these online matchmaking sites to find someone you want to be with, and if they do not like you for you, then you should not be with them.
