    That is not true most people don't have back dimples if they have cheek dimples. One in eight people have a back dimples and cheek dimples.

    Dimples are holes in your cheeks. However you can have them anywhere. You can tell if you have them when you smile and these holes appear in your cheeksz.

    Heres mine:

    dimples holes cheeks smile holes cheeksz

    Smile now if u have them ! "A dimple is any sort of indentation; most people use the term to refer specifically to indentations in the skin of people, particularly on the cheeks. Dimpled cheeks are considered attractive in many cultures". If you have them someone will automatically tell you...

  • Weasley... Johndec... 2010/02/12 09:04:41
    that's true. I have dimples. I think every person I have met has told me at least once that I have dimples. LOL.
  • matthewt Johndec... 2010/07/01 10:58:19
    Thanks for writing about this. There’s a lot of important tech info on the internet. You’ve got a lot of that info here on your site. I’m impressed – I try to keep a couple blogs pretty on-going, but it’s a struggle sometimes. You’ve done a great job with this one. How do you do it? online economics degree

    to tell you the truth I have never known and have always wondered. I knew people had them cuz they told me so and i can kinda tell if they do. but i'm not too sure cuz i dont know what im lookin for exactly cuz they're not only on your cheeks. you can have em on other parts of your face and someone said this one guy had'em on his shoulders, so idk
  • melo 2010/02/11 09:34:03

  • Kristen-xoxo 2010/02/11 04:34:12
    i dont know how to explain themm. aha so this is what i just searched googe and found.
    "A dimple is any sort of indentation; most people use the term to refer specifically to indentations in the skin of people, particularly on the cheeks. Dimpled cheeks are considered attractive in many cultures, and it should be fairly easy to find someone with dimplesdimplesdimples in your neighborhood, since dimplesdimplesdimples are a genetic trait. Most dimplesdimplesdimples are actually caused by a birth defect, which just goes to show you that not all “malformations” are actually bad."

    i have dimples, and i hateee them. /:
  • I_FELL_... Kristen... 2013/05/18 00:16:51
    I have dimples, too. You shouldn't hate them b/c some people wish they had them. Be grateful that you were born with a delightful defect that a lot of people desire!

    This is from Wikipedia, but it seems to be relatively accurate.
    Dimples are visible indentations of the skin, caused by underlying flesh, which form on some people's cheeks, especially when they smile (may be obscured by male facial hair). Dimples are genetically inherited and are a dominant trait.[1] Dimples on each cheek are a relatively common occurrence for people with dimples. A rarer form is the single dimple, which occurs on one side of the face only. Anatomically, dimples may be caused by variations in the structure of the facial muscle known as zygomaticus major. Specifically, the presence of a double or bifid zygomaticus major muscle may explain the formation of cheek dimples.[2] This bifid variation of the muscle originates as a single structure from the zygomatic bone. As it travels anteriorly, it then divides with a superior bundle that inserts in the typical position above the corner of the mouth. An inferior bundle inserts below the corner of the mouth.
