Is It Too Difficult To Smile?

41 posts in this topic

One of the most important aspects for a punter is to have some idea of what the lady he plans to see looks like,, often via a photo, yet I never cease to be amazed an the number of pictures of girls who dont/cannot smile on their photos.

The photos are a perfect way for the WG to start to convey the warmth of her personality (or otherwise) as part of the process to 'sell herself', but I am getting so disillusioned by images featuring a scowl, tight thin lips, a bored or vacant stare etc. They are a total turn off, as are pictures of girls with spots on their arse!!! These can be photoshopped out easily, but ladies, is it that difficult to smile ?? It's a total turn off for me.

Personally i would rather see spots than turn up to find them because the WGs pictures had photoshopped them out. I dont want to see any photoshopped photos. I do want to see photos of the actual WG which matches the WG i actually meet.

As to smiling i agree with you. Some havent a clue how to market themselves.

Victoria Beckham doesn't smile and we all know why... ;)

I think they are trying to look sexy. Or are not actually happy to have their pictures taken, I prefer not to have any online, some crazy people "collect" them on their PC and even if you have paid someone to remove all evidence of your trade online, these "lovely" characters are thrilled to be able to provide that missing photo of so and so who actually stopped working years ago. But that's another issue.

Not everyone is a natural model, simple as that. If you are uncomfortable before the camera, you won't remember to smile and the person taking the photo is clearly incompetent because that is what you pay a photographer for, to take a good photo.

There is a reason why some ladies dont show their faces, I dont need to spell that out to anyone, and there had been more than a few cases of ladys, being outed because of a watch or necklace they have worn when the picture was taken.

Dont get me wrong, a good facial photo can atract a punter, but its not worth the risk to advertise too much, as you never can tell who might be lurking.

Why doesn't she smile? I have no clue other than she is a bit miserable, or maybe because her hubby plays away? Who knows

What about those of us who don't show our faces at all?

Sometimes Its hard for me not to smile when I see some guys :)

If a lady is going to show her face I can't think it would be too difficult for her to look interested in the end product of the photographers work.

Indeed, if a WG chooses to show her face then a bit of smiling will go a long way, or at least if no smile not looking miserable. Conversely it helps me decide though because i just look elsewhere so it can make my choice easier. My bad luck if i miss out on a gem.

While preferring face photos i understand why some WGs dont have any so that in itself isnt an issue, its been a rare occassion when a WG has been so ugly that i simply couldnt proceed with the punt fortunately. Overall a bit of time and effort can go a long way.

I can just imagine the scene, a young escort is dressed in her sexiest outfit, has stripped down to her briefest knickers, and has a friend taking some photos of her to put on her profile.

Whilst trying to lure some guys into booking her by showing enough to capture their intrest, and trying to act as coy as possable and inviting, the last thing on her mind is do you think I should be smiling!.

She looks like a horse when she doesn't. At least if she smiled she'd look like a happy horse instead of a miserable one :lol:

is it that difficult to smile ??

That is exactly what a lady told me a few weeks back. She advertised a comprehensive and very naughty set of services. Kept her bra and panties on. Would only do OW. Kissing? What kissing? 69? Don't like that. Forgot to wash after the last client anyway. She then had the cheek to ask me why I don't smile. I said why don't you get a knife and stab me and that might get me going.

i actually find it difficult to smile when having photos taken. I actually dislike being photographed, it makes me feel odd and I am not a natural model. This means I 'work' quite hard during a photoshoot, take it quite seriously (well good photos are important to me) so my facial expressions often reflect this!

And if two people were thinking enough to write it down, how many others were also thinking that same thing and just shook their heads.

Sorry to mock worldpunter, I hope you have a better dream later on.... ;) you were lucky to escape, see what trouble Kathryn Jenkins got into just denying the fact she had a relationship with one of the Beckhams, death threats and the police would have been the order of the day if you had said that on some other social forum... :D :D :D :D

I once had a dream, that I wouldn't be able to buy even if I was a billionaire - I was the filling in the sandwich with Baby Spice on the bottom and Posh on top.

I agree 100% with OP but its not just in the photos, it also in the parlours. Sometimes, I go to Manor Park Sauna and have a pick of six girls, none of whom can raise a smile. My strategy, when faced with more than one unsmiling face used to be just pick the best looking one, but now its to pick the one in the middle, as she is probably the one with the nicest and friendliest personality. I haven't got a two girl strategy.

For Eastern European girls its a cultural thing, only lunatics smile all the time. I once visted a Hungarian girl who could never raise more than an enigmatic Mona Lisa smile in her photos but was absolutely great during the punt - smiling and giggling the whole way through and not just when I dropped my trousers.

I have found some blogs on this issue. Hopefully Rada Ishes will be able to shed further light on this.

http://blog.properrussian.com/2011/05/why-russians-are-not-smiling.html

http://konstantin2005.blogspot.co.uk/2005/10/why-russians-do-not-smile.html

1. Smile is Russian communication is not a sign of politeness. (Улыбка у русских не есть знак вежливости)

2. Russian people do not smile at strangers. (Русские не улыбаются незнакомцам)

3. It is not typical to Russian to give a smile in return. (Для русских не естественно улыбаться в ответ)

4. It is not typical for Russian to smile at a person whose eyes you met with your eyes by chance. Americans smile in such a case but Russians turn off their eyes. (Для русских не естественно улыбаться человеку, с которым вы случайно встретелись глазами, американцы обычно так делают, русские просто отводят глаза)

5. Russians don’t smile altogether looking at babies or pets. (I think it is a controversial utterance). (Русские не улыбаются смотря на младенцев или животных)

6. A Russian smile is a sign of personal attraction. (Для русских улыбка - это знак личной симпатии)

7. Russians do not smile when working or doing something serious. (Русские не улыбаются, когда работают или делают, что-то серьезное)

8. Russian smile is sincere. It is the exp<b></b>ression of either high spirits or a good attitude to a partner. (Русская улыбка искрена. Это выражение либо высоких чувств либо хорошего отношения)

9. A smile of a Russian person should have a sufficient reason. (Для улыбки должна быть достаточная причина)

10. The only worthy reason of a smile in Russian communication is the wealth of a smiling person. (Единственная стоящая причина для улыбки у русских - это состояние (?) улыбающегося человека)

11. It is not typical for the Russian communicational culture to smile in order to cheer up or make others cheer up. A Russian person will hardly smile without evident wealth or very high spirits. (Не естественно для русской культуры общения улыбаться для того, чтобы поднять настроение себе или окружающим)

12. In a pure Russian consciousness a smile need a proper time for appearing. It is considered an independent action, which is very often unnecessary and annoying. Another Russian proverb says, “Business takes time, fun takes an hour”. (Улыбке нужно время, чтобы появиться. Улыбка иногда считается ненужной и раздражающей. Русская поговорка гласит: Делу время, а потехе час)

13. A smile should fit the situation from the point of view of the people around. (Улыбка должна быть "в тему")

14. Russians do not really distinguish between a smile and laughter. They often mix up these two phenomena. (Русские обычно не очень различают улыбку и смех. Они часто их смешивают)

короче, мы не улыбаемся просто так, БЕЗ ПРИЧИНЫ.

I'm surprised Strawberry, I really am....a couple of the pics on your website are outstanding and well executed (despite no face picture)....I would say you're a born natural...
