Ladies, do you want brutal honesty on your profile??Page 12 of 30    (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30)
hello lookin4afish. The first thing that jumps out at me is your marital status. If you are "not single or not looking", why do you have it set for "long term"? Your profile is nothing fancy but it gets the point across. It would have been nice if you went a little further into detail about yourself and what you are looking for. Your pictures are ok but I wouldn't have used half pictures where someone else is cut out. That's kinda tacky. Anyway, good luck to you.

Hey Prettygrneyes, If you laugh like woody woodpecker I will show you my tattoo of him :-) I liked your profile a lot. It was easy to read and worded perfectly. You seem like a very affectionate person who is looking for the same. Add some more pictures and it will be perfect. Good luck to ya.

New Name, how are you? Your profile is another hard one to critique. I felt I have learned a lot about you just by reading it. I was able to sense your passions in life and could relate easily to what you had written.

The only thing that I see that would throw some guys off is the phrase about being with your children every second of the day. Everyone needs a break from the kids every now and than. Since you made that one of your specific points, I also feel that it would be important to share the ages of your children as well. Other than that, AWESOME.

luvlytina....hola preciosa. You should try to capitolize the first word in a sentence. The sentence about you loving to try something different while visiting othe places did not make much sense. Read that sentence over and phrase it differently. I had to read it 3 times before understanding what you meant. You don't seem like the one to kick back at home and watch a movie. Always having to go out somewhere, that adds up even if it is just $20 bucks a pop. Your pictures are nice and based on looks alone, i'm sure you are not having any problems. I bet you that if you changed your main picture to the second to the last, you will notice a big difference. Good Luck

ToWoman. Well what can I say about you? You seem like an all-around fun person to be around. You got the whole package. I enjoyed reading your profile as it painted a very clear picture about you and the type of person you are. I love your main picture that you selected. You resemble an actress from the movie Bad Boys with Will Smith and Martin Lawrence. I don't remember her name but you look exactly like her. You seem very passionate about life. It was a pleasure to read about you.

Bonnie199. First of all, I think you are very attractive. Your profile just seemed like an un-organized mess. The words just seem to have been thrown together with no structure or organized thought plan. You can use the same thoughts but be more creative and spend a little more time putting it together. Boring, boring, boring

bubbles 39, how are you? Ok I just looked at your profile. From just reading your heading, you came across to me as desperate. While reading your profile, I found myself getting aggravated by the lack of punctuations and capitolization. If I was a potential hit on your profile, I would have pulled the brakes hard when I read that you are angry all the time. BIG RED FLAG!! We should not have to try and keep you in a certain mood. That's just too much work for us guys! I'm sorry but I would re-do the entire profile.

Hello Maria. Well you just seem like a very spunky person! I can see that you are the type of person that can find some humor in any situation. You also seem like a fun person to be around. I did not like your main picture that much but the others were very nice. I loved the picture in the Fireman outfit. As far as grammar and stuff like that, put a "be" in front of passionate and you'll be good to go!

I like your profile and says just enough to make us guys wanting to know more.

angie, angie, angie! Your profile was a mess to me. Your first date could have been broken down into your "about me" and your "interests". Your about me section just seemed to me one long run-on sentence that was seperated with just commas. You probably could have made 3 nice paragraphs with what you wrote if you had worded it correctly. Make those sentences more complete with periods not commas and use paragraphs.

Your first date should be simple and to the point. Yours is longing than your 'about me"! I would change it all around. Your pictures are dark and not complimenting. I would lighten the second one and use that as your main photo. You have a pretty smile and I can tell you take pride in your beautiful full lips. Post pictures that accent them more. Good Luck, hon

Coozy, hi how are you? You are very old fashioned. (not a bad thing) There was a few words that I didn't understand but I'm sure it's because I'm from the States. For example, I have never heard the word "bloke" before. You seem like a very attractive woman, I would like to see more pictures of you close up. Overall, I like your profile.

AllieJo, hi sweetie. More pictures!! You have an amazing smile. Ok, I did a few changes to your profile....this is what I came up with:


I'm relatively sane & don't have too many illusions (or delusions) about myself. Life's too short to kvetch about things I can't or won't change. I don't have the time or the inclination to play games. I'm an honest, nonconformist with traditional values. I perceive the glass as half full. My wide range of interests include philosophical mysteries to trying to figure out what my cat is thinking and a whole lot in between. I believe in magic and exceptional people!

First of all, I am not interested in long-distance relationships. Please be geographically desirable! I am a very giving person and feel that you will receive what your heart puts in.

Are you a Romantic? Do you like to kiss and hold hands in public? I love intimacy, both physical and emotional. Are you the man that will make my heart skip a beat? Can you be strong yet sensitive at the same time? Don't worry, I wont tell your friends about the sensitive part...LOL.

Honesty is of great importance that builds the foundation to a strong and healthy relationship. I prefer intelligence over looks and kindness over ego. Couch potatoes please do not respond. I'm looking for someone just as motivated as I. Strong values and a sense of direction are important. Someone that believes that people in general are good, and understands what it takes to make a relationship work. a great partner and good friend….a straight shooter and good listener, with a strong personality to match my own. A little on the wild side is okay! Someone who enjoys life in general, and who has checked most of his baggage... I will scratch your back if you rub my feet (and work your way up)! I love to laugh and am good at it. I want to grow old, just not alone ~ And I am OK with growing old!

If this sounds like you, I'd love to hear from you!

Hello agilegirl. I like the way you paragraphed your thougts. The thoughts were good but you had many spelling mistakes. I have corrected your spelling mistakes and a few grammar errors is this is what I came up with...


I am a confident,intelligent,independent and self-sufficient woman. Intellectual but could be referred to as a red neck woman. I do and enjoy varied seasonal activities such as ATVing, fishing even ice fishing, skiing, snowmobiling, camping, boating, home renovations, mechanical repairs, ect.... I can relate to guys about guy things easier than most girls. I can usually fix anything but have on occasion played dumb so the guys will do it for me. Not just another pretty face you know. LOL.There is no food better than that cooked and eaten outdoors. I work year round in an active outdoor profession, so I am experienced in the great outdoors.
Versatile, I can clean up well and quick and have the sexiness, softness, emotions, perceptions, needs and wants of a woman. Satisfying some of those needs and wants will take chemistry and an honest friendship first, that will take some time to develop so let's get started. I want to laugh, loosen up and have fun yet still be able to carry on an intelligent conversation on most any topic. I'd rather laugh at you first, but if not I can laugh at myself. Nothing like a bit of humor to get us over life's awkward or bumpy times.

Just want someone to be genuine about who you truly are and what your about. We all know you can't change somebody else into what we want. Take me as I am, what you see and hear is what you get with me. I am very genuine, loyal and honest, direct but not hurtful. I usually know what I want and strive each day to be positive, grow and improve on myself. Very communicative and approachable, friends, acquaintances and surprisingly complete strangers often trust me enough to confide in me. I have a lot to give and offer and also receive from that someone special. If you capture my heart, you have it. I am a one man woman.

I have my own home, truck, ATV, kayak, camping gear, even power tools. Not scared and content at times to venture out alone in nature or travel, sometimes with no destination in mind. Looking for an adventure somewhere, just the dogs and I. I am never bored or boring. Very sociable and outgoing, a night out occasionally is great, but most comfortable in smaller crowds rather than large ones. I appreciate the great friends and relatives I have and enjoy a quiet night at home, in nature or visiting with friends.

A single mother of one boy who is now grown and lives nearby. Other objects of my affection now are my 6 yr. old Golden Retriever and 2 yr. old Belgium Shepherd. Hoping to train the Belgium for agility, when we master the obedience training. Both are well behaved, affectionate and cuddly, just like their owner. To them, I am their world. I can train a dog but I want a man already trained, ready to go. LOL. To the special guy, I want to be his world too, right after his kids, of course.

My absolutely favorite place to be besides in the arms of the man, I really admire, trust and respect, is to be on or near the water. I love the good conversations or quiet moments, beautiful scenery, sharing the sound of the loons, or splash of the waves. This summer I will own a large boat to work on and spend weekends and nights on the water. So if you are the one, then maybe we can enjoy the water together this summer.
I value the simple things and happiness over money and possessions any day. I don't need someone to look after me, complete me but compliment me. It would be really nice to have someone help me find and keep track of the things I consistently forget, misplace, keys, money, vehicles,ect and maintain the things I already have. LOL.

So, if I sound like the type of person you'd like to get to know better, let me know soon so we can work on deleting our profiles and get off this damn computer. I've met some really nice people here but warmer weather is coming soon. I'll be busy, I will have a boat to work on, and a lake to visit.


*First Date*
Think I rather call it a first meet, an opportunity to see if the online person we envisioned each other as, matches the offline person. Pics and chat doesn't do everyone justice on both ends. Just bring your conversation, personality, dog, along. Can just be as simple as meeting for coffee, beer, or meal first, or we can share a common interest or winter outdoor activity for now, but definitely more options in better weather. If mutual chemistry, then we can arrange a date interesting to both of us. If no chemistry, we can still get out, have fun and conversation and maybe meet a new friend

sexyiz...I would LOVE to do you! Ok here goes. Lets start with the physical stuff first. Your have gorgous eyes and a very kissable mouth! 95?? Well I guess we get the point on that one....none of our business. Your profile is short, sweet, and to the point. It does leave us wanting to know more about you. But since you are looking for just "friends", I think you gave just enough info to create great conversations. ;-)

reblgurl4life, how are you?? I think your previous comment was based on your third picture and this statement.....
but I may be the first one to throw a big armful up in the air just to stand and laugh while they fall around me


That scared me a little as well. I would take that picture out completely and rephrase that sentence. maybe something like this. "I'll be the the one playing in the pile of leaves while edging you on to join in the fun"
