|Good pics are required for success here. That needs to be your first priority. Get one at work in uniform or working on a car. (If you can get that past security.)|
<-- click my History for my pic guidelines.
Delete the Headline! You need something new, upbeat and creative. If you are ashamed then don't be here, if you are a liar don't announce it.
Don't answer "Prefer not to say", it's evasive.
"Nothing serious"/"Friends" will not work at your age. This is a dating site, most people are looking for "Relationship/Dating" or "Long-term". It isn't about how you want to start, it's about your ultimate goal.
You need more Interests, 12 are ideal. Enter "F1" to begin with! These are searchable links that will bring people to your profile. "Bee Keeping, Mountain Climbing
All my mates are married and most now have kids, so nights out are becoming a rare occurrence, further narrowing the possibility of meeting a decent woman. Also my mates tend to only do couple things which is bloody annoying for me.Negative, unnecessary.
So alas i try internet dating.
Hobbies and the like...
My type:Unnecessary and just plain bad.
I think i prefer older woman but i will generally consider anyone.
I will add more later
Add a paragraph about what and who you are looking for.
You need to be positive and upbeat, genuine and sincere, show self esteem and self confidence. What works is being different, standing out from the crowd. Use humor, creative writing, a song lyric, something different than the 19 other guys on the screen or in her Inbox.
Do a real First Date, make it sound interesting or romantic. Coffee is overused and unpopular with many.
Run spell check.
PS: How about a couple tickets to Texas?

|Everything campfires said, plus:|
Yeah, that pic sucks. Better no pic than a bad one. Get new ones.
It's been said already but never answer "Prefer not to say" EVER. Period.
You are using small "i" (for me, myself) when you should be using a capital "I" (for me, myself). Using a small "i" is often a "tell" identifying African scammers.
More interests, up to 9 or 10 and using easily searchable terms, as interests are searchable. Hill walking=no (No one is going to search for that), try "hiking" or "trail hiking".
If, by F1 you mean Formula 1, you must say it the long way the first time so people unfamiliar with the term can easily decipher it. After that you can use the abbreviation.
A bee house is properly called a beehive or apiary. Show off that big brain, man.
First date: Coffee? Really? Is that all you got? And with a question mark too? It's not supposed to be a question, it is supposed to be a suggestion!
Try for a good, solid suggestion, then add "or how about just coffee and conversation?" at the end.
Use "mail settings" to filter for distance, age-range and encounters you are NOT open to. Looking for a Pen-Pal? No? Say so here.
And everything campfires said. Good luck.
