Which one would you say is better? Honest opinions appreciated, thanks!
Over the past three months, you have gained a noticeable amount of weight and your smile has become a little more vibrant. Beyond that, I can find no other discernible changes other than the clothes you were wearing in the pictures - which doesn't qualify.

I can't say which I think is better because I'm a heterosexual male. But I am inclined to vote for the "now" pictures only because you appear happier. Ultimately, the true answer to your question comes from determining when you were happier - then, or now.

If you're asking about which one is better in a purely physical sense, I have no idea. Find a woman you think would make a good wife for you, based upon what you know about her, to whom you are physically attracted... and ask her. You never know - her answer may surprise you. Since I always look like a dork in my pictures no matter how I try to smile, I'll stick to the "weight" thing. I'm 6'2" and have vacillated between 193 and 228 pounds since getting together with she who is now my wife - she prefers me heavier. When I told her last month that I was going to lose weight, she wasn't excited... she said "whatever makes you happy, just don't get down to 193 again". I figure if I stop at 200, she may still be okay with it.

Is that actually a word??

You aren't really fat, but did something happen to cause a weight gain? You're handsome, with or with out, and don't get me wrong I definitely prefer men with meat on their bones. I'm just curious. You should do what makes you the happiest.

Best wishes

Feb 2014 pic looks better. You still look good on your May 2014 pic, just lose the tummy. It's not good for your health.

The main difference is the weight gain. I once gained 15 lbs in 3 months because of being prescribed prednisone which often causes extra weight. You are a nice looking young man. I didn't expect to see anything different in only 3 months, but couldn't miss the gain around your middle.

Try smiling--always. Also, the pose in all the photos does not do you justice. Stand up in front of a full length mirror. Remember: you're always "on stage and performing--always. . . "

I'm going to sound like my mother for a moment ...


Seriously though, I have a slight preference of May over Feb (I like my guys a little "fuller"), but I want to yank your shoulders up and back in all the pics. It would do you wonders!

Agree - I also do not care for the more recent haircut. You are a nice looking guy, just grow the hair back out and lose that extra weight.

I agree also that you need to sit/stand straight, shoulders back and pull the gut in - it will make a HUGE difference!

You look good. My impression is that you could grow a really (edit for cleanliness)awesome beard. I would do that. Sit up straight for your photos. Your arms appear to be in great shape.

You gained a LOT of weight in just a few months. a LOT of weight. You got fat and most of it is in your belly.
