|There is a sort of 'bossy/will wear the pants' tone to your profile that man may find offputting.|
Not sure how successful this will be but I hope to be successful with the right person! The first few lines of your profile show up in searches. "Not sure how successful" is not a very good first impression and will likely not encourage many men to click into your profile. Also, as the first line, it sets a negative tone right off the bat.
I think he's old enough now that I can start dating. I have been single for quite a while and wonder if I'm even relationship material anymore, especially with having a special needs child but a gal's gotta give it a shot, right? This is your second statement that says "I don't think this is going to work"
The difficulty is with being a single parent and having a professional career and also having the time to have a social life!This is your third statement that says "I don't think this is going to work"
I do not play games. If I sense that's happening, I'm out. No questions asked. I'm mature enough to be beyond that point and I'd hope you are too. There is simply no point in saying this. Most people don't recognise or acknowledge that they are game players. They aren't going to look at your profile and say 'oh I better not contact her then'. It just comes across as negative. Focus on saying what you like not what you don't like.
He probably has children and is a wonderful father. I like to watch the interaction between fathers and their children. It tells me a lot about the person he is. I find that single dads who are very involved with their kids and who aren't afraid to get out there and play are incredibly sexy! What also warms my heart is the man who isn't afraid to treat other children as his own.I understand what you are saying here, and agree with your sentiments, but it just seems a little intense for a profile. I get a mental image of you studying his every movement and making a mental checklist of how he is with kids (his and yours). Which *is* what I did with the man I dated when my children were younger, but I would not have wanted him to know I was scrutinising his behaviour so carefully.
I can't say that I have a type as far as looks. I have no preferences as far as hair, eyes, body type. Then you don't need to say anything.
Nothing too extreme I guess. I don't mind a few extra pounds but can't do obese.Try saying this in a positive way, ie what you'd like, not what you don't like. For example you could add on to your "I like to take care of myself and stay active " statement with "and I'd love to find a like-minded man", or "I'd like to find someone to share that with".
I don't mind bald or balding but can't do bright blue hair...lol. Unless a lot of men in your area have blue hair - there really is no need to say this. Don't talk about what you don't want, just talk about what you do want. So if you don't mind bald men, then you don't need to even mention it.
Won't date a smoker - sorry.Use your mail setting to filter out smokers - then you have one less negative statement to include in your profile.
