Dude you're far from unphotogenic. Although your main photo is terribly bad quality, a mirror selfie with the phone in shot (worst type except for public bathrooms)... at least it has the main element, a nice smile! Now if this same pic were taken in your local park, taken by someone else (just ask a passing stranger to take a pic to send to your mom or whatever).... you'd be sorted.

Shirtless pics are against POF rules, and the tongue pic... just no.

You have a spelling mistake in your interests
You use the word I far too much - makes for a dull read, and like you are far too self absorbed
Instead of saying WOMEN say Woman, doubt you going to get a harem :P
Add your first name
Main too blurry
Last one was what, high school? No, pictures should be current
Maybe the first time was a fluke :)
I've never in my Life known someone who " always gets what they want" even those who don't set the bar very high
JMO good luck

Akim,
lose the disclaimer, just put up new photos as you get them ( and rotate them).
You have Other as a language.. I am guessing it means it is not all that common - fun fact to include
You only want to date women with dark hair? Given women change their hair color ( often) you are missing out on some possible good matches.

Nobody is going to "stay tuned". They will look at your bad photos, hit the "next" button, and never look at your profile again.

You have 1 chance per viewer. Make it count.

"Disclaimer" is pointless. Just put up good pics, not excuses for bad ones.

That last paragraph is awful. Delete it and re-write it with eloquence and respect for your prospective date.

Hi Akim,

Great advice offered; follow it.
Using the words "douche" and bullsh1t"...seriously?
Everybody here is honest and sensitive.
"Friends describe me as" has got to be one of the most overused phrases here.


So are you a beautiful, intelligent, caring, playful and affectionate woman? I adore a genuine, REAL (what you see is what you get ) down to earth woman who is sexy and is comfortable being feminine. Physically my type of woman takes care of herself, dresses modestly but still feels sexy, perhaps wearing clothes tailored to her figure and beautiful curves ;), but in all honesty I'm a sucker for a great personality above anything else!
This has to go.
Huge turnoff. Makes you shallow.
You should not be describing physical qualities.
There are other ways to get your point across.

So you are an honest guy that likes music and beautiful women. Doesn't that describe every man here?
Don't explain why 1st date should be short...it's understood.

How many do you want?? Most men dont get any at all and if you are getting some response, you are ahead of the game.The really hot looking gals may not be real, you know. lol! And.... all that you want, does she really have to be online???. She would be swamped wherever she goes, in real life. Get so many messages she would have her choices aplenty and yes, even average looking gals get loads of messages on here. The numbers are skewed against men and you have heavy competition.
