It is a small world. I was born at St. Thomas Hospital in Akron! Most of my childhood was in Cuyahoga Falls and the Ravenna area. I practically lived in Geauga Lake Water Park most summers. On Disney World, I'll be honest it isn't the rides. It's the magic.

This week has been an enlightening week for me. Between looking at profiles of the masters, constructive criticism from the masters and some offline input, I've went through a bit of a rewrite. Of course, it is still a work in progress and will likely remain so but it is starting to feel more me.

What do you all think?

Still think you could increase the number of to-be-shared interests in the interests section, and the about me consisting of part recipe, part story, but no description of "her" gives me pause.

BUT this is a perfect run-for-a-week-to-test profile. See who responds and if you've qualified enough, and if not? Have a change ready for next week.

What is the target number of shared interests that you would suggest? A description of her, now that is a tough one. I wouldn't want to eliminate anyone because she didn't fit that description.

^^^^^^ I doubt he is suggesting that you say you want a slim, blond that loves to run 5 miles a day can quote Shakespeare and loves going to the Louvre.

What you seek in another should be kept to a minimum, but what you are looking for in a person as far as generality in character/interests in a sentence usually helps.


Well, Hell Bell.
It's just out right one of the most " OMG, zzzzzzzzz" profiles I have read in a while.

This is what you have been working on and improving? Ouch!

Stick to the facts.
Get better pictures and dress to flatter a BBW.
No pastels.
Main pic should be a close up of the face.
No other people should be in your pics.

The bottom line is you have an uphill battle being male, big and over 45.
Start over( my opinion of course).

Stories and recipes? Just what the flip are you thinking?
If we want to read stories, we can read Pearl Buck and at least it will be interesting, nor do many care how you cook yard birds.

You could be the most fascinating man in the world, absolutely passionate and fun, but this profile will not reflect that at all.
