Fliguy, it's a solid profile, especially for a youthful guy like you. Good job.
I would divide the description into a few more paragraphs to render it a bit more legible.

Have a friend take two dozen well-lit, outdoor, crisp photographs using a high-quality digital camera...which is preferred over a fuzzy cellphone. Include a variety of backgrounds, activities, and various articles of clothing to add greater interest. Upload the best eight images of the bunch. Ensure you date and caption each pic. Good luck!

fliguy: I apologize. I'm rereading my comment #8 and it may have not come out the way I intended it to. If it offended you, I'm sorry b/c I didn't mean you had "nasty choppers". My own pictures show little teeth b/c I just look better that way.

I wanted you to know that we all have a better side or look. Don't hide your teeth, just something mild and pleasant. If you look comfortable with yourself in the photo, girls will be comfortable with you.

Oh, and I liked the previous photo as your main. There's a smile.

You're teeth aren't so clear that I could give you an opinion on them. All I see is a common overbite, which doesn't mean your teeth aren't pretty.

I like the haircut in the new photo, but I'd still like to see a smile like in your license pic.

1. Clean up the spelling, grammar, and punctuation
2. "I am unusually emotional for a guy." Do you mean the sensitive guy women always look for? Your wording makes me think you cry a lot.
3. "so my favorite genre would either be poetry or lyrics"

They may seem perfect for you but they don't think you're perfect for them. It happens to us all dude. Even the most successful guys on here get about a 10% response rate, and that is when we have a good photo and profile, messaging women who are a good match, and sending good messages.

You need a thick skin for online dating, that's just the way it is.

I imagine it is a bit of a numbers game - ie the more msgs you send. But for me that seems shotgun.. msg those you are interested in. You only need to connect with one :)

Ok, if all you can do is selfies, hold the phone farther away so you can crop it out. Hold it up higher and hold your chin up. Take lots of them--think happy thoughts, play your favorite music loud and go at it. Distract yourself from the task; pretend you are a rock star! Experiment with different lighting.
Also vary the clothes you wear and get outside for different backgrounds. Experiment with different angles. If you are having fun, it will show in your pics!
Does your phone have a front camera? If you have a timer, you can eliminate the arm stretched out holding the camera completely. Do you have an editor on your phone or can you download one?
Consider asking a coworker to take some pics for you--you can say they are for your grandma.

You have 8 seconds to make a good impression. Women will see your main photo as a tiny pic the size of a saltine cracker on their cell phone screens. If your main photo is not clear, bright and attractive, they move on. A genuine smile is inviting, warm and attractive. Women want to see your eyes and smile.

Please get new photos taken outdoors for better lighting, and with a quality digital camera, not a fuzzy cell phone. Your main photo should be a head-and-shoulder shot, showing you SMILING and looking at the camera. You also need one full body shot, again taken outdoors and smiling.

Other pictures should show you outdoors, doing activities you enjoy. No hats, sunglasses, alcohol or stupid poses. You must be in every picture. Ask a friend to take 24 pictures of you outdoors with a digital camera, wearing different clothes in various locations. Upload the best 8. Caption and date each photo-giving the location and year- to make the photos more interesting and clear.

Interests should be ACTIVITIES you enjoy and would enjoy doing with a woman. Choose 12 or 15 activities. Since interests are displayed in three columns, this will give you three equal columns that look sharp on your profile.

Your headline should be short and upbeat, and say something about you. "Life is Amazing!" is my headline.

Good luck in your romantic search.

Get good pictures.
Women tend to like to see guys outside in a few shots.
You have great arms so put a full body shot up and a nice short sleeve shirt and clothes that fit to show your physique.



I am the guy that wants a working, long-lasting relationship.

Doria gave you great advise.
No skin off our nose if you don't want help.
^^^To young to go on about lasting relationships.
One step at a time there..
You are 22, so sound fun and not like you are looking for a wife..
