Ok, changed up the photos -- reworded/deleted some of the list-y type profile stuff and finished the quote part.

What do you think now?

Yeah, I had a "few extra" last year and was told that I'm average so who knows-- According to poll run by the LA times, my height and weight are average for the US woman.

The last photo is too dark to include. However, it's a great idea to have one taken doing karaoke so just get someone to use a flash next time you do it.

@ mickathen -- No harm, no Foul. I appreciate the honesty. What I deem average will be someone else's humongous so it all comes out in the wash. Bonus points to you for the Jay and Silent Bob reference :)

Well I didn't memorize what you said before. I like the last 2 photos the best. I got so lost in the first sentence that I couldn't find my way out after three tries. However I liked the rest of the written part. Then again I'm a woman and I care about a lot of the same things you mentioned. I'm pretty sure men never read the whole profile. Yours seemed to get better as you went on but I'm concerned no one will be reading.

Beckera, at risk of appearing like an insensitive ***hole, I'm gonna give you an honest opinion, the ones that are not very common these days. You need to loose some weight, most men are not attracted to overweight woman, looks matter a lot to us, specially when dating online. You have a pretty face, but you should take better care of your body. Losing weight is not that hard, I lost 60 pounds in 1 year and I my love life changed drastically, all it takes is 3 or 4 trips to the gym a week and a change of your diet, no carbs, no greasy food, no sugar. I hope my advice will encourage you to do something about it. You'll see how a 20, 30 pound drop in weight will dramatically increase attention from men, trust me. Good luck!

Actually DBM I think you'll find honest opinions are very common in this forum :)

Losing weight is not an issue for me, I'd rather someone be a few pounds over but happy and confident, than skinny and miserable. I think your profile is just fine apart from a few things.
- Lose the first 2 paragraphs, they don't really add anything.
- First date "impress me" is my pet hate. I'm not going to impress you on a first date, I'm going to ask you for a coffee or a bar to see if we get on. If we do then I might impress you on the 2nd date. As a woman you don't need to think of anything witty or inspirational to write here, if you want to leave it to the guy then change it to "you decide" or something. Impress you... no... not until I've met you and know that you're worth impressing.
- Main photo could be better, a good close up. Your Santa photo would be great if it were closer up, and the last one would be great if you were smiling.
