How often do you look at your own reflection when out and about?


#1

All the time for me, Clive. Like a tinted car window, although find the window of a tube carriage to be especially unflattering. I am incredibly vain.


#2

As little as physically possible.


#3

Every available opportunity. Switch from thinking “yeah, not bad today” to “KILL IT WITH FIRE” every twenty seconds or so.


#4

i tend to do so only if i’ve just eaten as i get paranoid that food is in my beard


#5

oh god, all the time. Wild mane of hair that has a tendency to stick up like tintin at the front if I don’t keep it in check.

Plus I like checking myself out.

(Actually I don’t so much these days) :sob::rofl:


#6

Evidently not enough. Just noticed I’ve got peanut butter all over my face. I ate like two hours ago :thinking:


#7

Suffering from mild eisoptrophobia, basically…never?

#9

Went through a phase of hating myself so much during my pubescent teen years that I could only stomach to look at my distorted reflection on the surface of a bathroom tap.

Met an old fellow at a folk festival years ago who claimed they hadn’t seen themselves in twenty years - no reflections, no photographs. He claimed to have killed his ego.

^ this is exactly the sort of thing i check for


#11

in shiny cabbies and shop windows all the time but only on my bicycle


#12

Quite regularly. Mainly to try to gauge the size of my manbreasts compared to other men of roughly the same age (mid-twenties).


#13

I hate trying to style my hair in the mirrors in public toilets when there are other people around. I want to fix my hair which never stays in shape (unless I have a lot of product in it), but I just feel really uncomfortable doing it around other people for some reason, as though it’s a sign I must be vain or something.


#14

Whenever I catch my reflection I’m surprised by how miserable I look, even though I do feel pretty miserable


#15

fairly often, don’t mind the way I look in real life. I hate looking at myself in photographs though. I’m not sure why there’s such a big difference. something to do with fluidity and motion vs it being a static moment?

anyone want to psychoanalyse me


#16

loads
i’m drawn to all moving images though


#17

Phone cameras are the absolute worst, which is what I imagine most of our social media photos come from (except me as I don’t really hang out with people who take photos). But the lenses are always of the crappest quality so they’re not a good reflection of reality.


#18

used to check myself out all the time but cant believe how ugly I am these days

dont wanna know mate


#19

I’ve started doing my makeup without a mirror


#20

Pretty much this. Try to avoid. Those concave tube mirrors are the worst. Always catch me off guard and make me go “Woaaahhhhh, I got a big nose”.
