as posted above:
"The models I do know, one thing they seem to be good at, is knowing how to position their head and face and what expressions to make that "work" for them really well."

and the models i have met have given me three tips to look good in pictures (real life, too?).
1. lean your face (not body) a little forward toward the camera. slims and tightens the neck.
2. look at the camera at a very slight sideways angle. "10 to win", meaning 10 degrees=slight.
3. accentuate your one best feature. eyes, lips, whatever you think is your best, but ONLY one.

Love these answers! I've developed more confidence in middle age. I think older folks have a beauty that comes with confidence, self assurance, and wisdom that youth can't match.

I voted yes, because people respond positively to me. I have a mirror, and I don’t think I’ve aged well at all, but I feel that people seem to find either my looks or my mien attractive. Either that, or I’m so homely that people respond positively because they feel sorry for me.

I get good haircuts, wear cute glasses, and dress ok, but beyond that, I don’t worry about it.

When I was younger, I was told all the time I was attractive, and had many suitors. Now, since I’m older, nothing. Sometime last year, a couple of random strangers told me I was beautiful so I guess that counts for something.

With that being said, I keep myself up. Hair, skin, clothes, exercise, weight, the works. I’ve learned to love the skin I’m in, so I think I look good for me and to my standards. But I don’t feel I’m attractive to others.
After a certain age, you will become invisible. which is not al bad if you are tired of the game or not in it

I love "older" people. There is an astrologer named Cal Garrison, and you know, they usually say that we have to keep out of the sun, but I love how her dark sun-kissed skin and her silvery white hair contrasts. I find her very beautiful!

And in the extreme of older beauty, there is Eileen Kramer. She is 104 years old. A dancer and choreographer from Australia. Just looking at a photo of her brings tears to my eyes and chills to my skin. She still dances!! (Though a lot of it is flowing motions from a sitting position now. STILL THOUGH.)

A thought came to me when I first saw a video and article about her. There is a point in old age where a different kind of beauty is there, it seems like all of the bullcrap has been burned away by the years, and she is nearly a being of pure spirit.

LOL I re-read this and feel I lose all credibility as a rational thinker, having mentioned an astrologer and talked about pure spirit...I truly do view most of the woo-woo stuff as just quaint and fun, not serious. But when it comes to Eileen Kramer, I mean it. It's just the only way I can describe her.

Oh, and last year, at age 103, she wrote and published her autobiography.

If a good number of very decent looking guys regularly hit you up for sex, does that mean you are fairly attractive?

Not really. It probably means you're creating the wrong impression with your clothing choices.

How Good Looking Are You?

Good enough that I don't frighten small children or incur dogs to bark at me. But I do smile when I am out in the public domain as it softens my old lady look a bit.
