Ladies, do you want brutal honesty on your profile??Page 28 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)
surprisemerecon. You love those "commas" don't you? GET RID OF THEM! Capitolize the first word in each sentence. So you checked out the profile writing tips? I think you need to check it out again.

Break your profile up in at least three paragraphs. The first paragraph normally describes you. The second normally describes what you are looking for. The third paragraph can be a final thought or something creative that will grab our attention.

Jude52. I think it's too short. You don't have to give your life story but I think you should put a little more into it than 3 sentences. Your main photo is blurry and your others are just tooo black. Find some that are clear and more colorful shots. I see that you love fishing. Do you have any pictures of you on a boat or showing any type of activities?

Thanks bunches Eddie,
Funny....Truffles on the other profile thingy told me it was tooo long so I shortened it lol...But a man's point of veiw is good. I will try and make more pictures with light colors...I tend to like the color black , so I wear it a lot. Truffles suggested the same on that subject, I have some of me fishing and catching a good Bass but they are a few yrs old.
Thanks again, I will repost when I update the profile and C what you think again.

Hey Eddie,
I lightened the pic's up a bit....till I can have some more made and added a few words more to the profile. What do you think?
The pic with the white shirt on is small and it is strectched on here that is why it is fuzzy...But I will have more made soon.
Thanks,
Jude

Hello ellebk.
Your profile has way too many "I's"! It is good but i would re-word most of the sentences that start with "I". While you are doing that, I would break your "about me" section into 4-5 seperate paragraphs. Your profile is a little long but I think it would be more appealing on the eyes once your thoughs are seperated. You pictures are nice and you are a very attractive woman.

miscevious imp,

<div class="quote">I'm blonde and cuddly If your not blonde, don't mention it!
<div class="quote">(even though my pictures show im not its my natural colour) take this out of the "()" and just add a comma.
<div class="quote"> now before youu run screaming for the hills I mean just cuddly some thing that will keep you warm on a night. This sentence does not make any sence. what are you trying to say here? spelling and grammar issue here
<div class="quote">I enjoy lots of differnt things in life and my taste in music is very varied. Double space after periods and "very varied" does not sound correct together. Say that 5 times real fast! different is spelled wrong too. I'm not going to go any further until you take you profile and run it through a spell checker. That will help you with grammar and spelling.

Also, the short walks comment makes you sound lazy! Take out the dark, blurry picture. If you can't see it, why put it up? Ok, I'm done!

katiebug, I loved your profile. It made me feel like I was just missing out on beautiful places and made me think about traveling more often. Your profile is a perfectly drawn picture. I was in Europe for 4years and it was absolutely breath-taking! Great Great Great!

Ok, I've been away for a while but I'm back to try and catch up. Sweetdreams, your profile is short and to the point. I would leave out the things that you have already mentioned in your "interests". Can we see atleast one picture of you? If you are serious about meeting new people, putting a picture up will improve those chances.

Wow, I would visit your treehouse anyday! You seem like a fun person to hang out with. I would like to see some better pics but it's not a big deal. You can be a passenger on my Ninja anytime!

BORING, BORING, BORING! TAke out what you have already mentioned in your "interests" and your profile is ONE sentence. All of your pictures are head shots. I would had a few different pics that show a little more or even activity photos. You do have very pretty eyes.

jodstar6, in reference to you last picture........I WOULD TOO!! Bom Chicka Wow Wow! If you are ultimately looking for someone for more than just friends or "hangout", I would change that part. You seem like a lot of fun and I wouldn't change too much with your profile. It probably wouldn't matter if your profile just said "hi, contact me". You are beautiful.

Ok, You state what you like and what you are looking for, that is good. I am going to be brutally honest with you. I hope I don't offend you in anyway. Whenever I see a young woman's profile that says "widowed", it makes me concerned. I think about how this person's lifestyle is. Is it dangerous? Other thoughs run into my head but I will leave that to your imagination with a lil hint. "act of passion".

I am sorry for your loss with all my heart. Without out going into detail, I would mention or hint to how you lost your husband. You are pretty and would like to see more pictures of you.

Your skin disorder is something I would bring up later once you get to know someone.

You seem more of the "I'ld rather be in the pub every weekend" person! The pub is your security blanket and you lack the confidence to find someone outside of the pub. Alcohol relaxes you and lets you open up more to strangers where if you weren't drinking, you would be timid and shy.

Stay away from the pubs because they are bringing down your self-asteem and confidence. You are a pretty girl and guys will realize that without being drunk out in a pub looking for a piece of A$$!

Hello, How are you?

As far as your interests section, "good food" and "good TV" does not give much to the imagination. Your profile is way too long and too informative. Leave some details for mutual conversation. Your spelling and grammar is almost perfect. Just a couple of spelling errors. In paragraph one, "realised" is suppose to be realized. The word "cliched" is actually spelled "clich'ed".

Also saying that you can spend all day watching "good TV" and that you love just hanging out at home screams "Couch Potato". Update your pictures and put new ones up. You have some serious compressing to do. Your profile is boring, boring, boring!

Good Luck!!

I have a lot of time on my hands so I'm looking for someone who isn't married to his job or other obligations.

Looking at what you wrote as your profession, I will guess that you do not have a job. If I don't spend my every spare second with you, that will be a problem. You would want to come first before my Job and my family!

Having "a lot of time on your hands" is not a good way to start your profile. You come off to me as "clingy" and have to be the center of attention.

Your pictures, although nice, need to go. I can't stand when someone puts a bunch of pictures up that are exactly the same. Keep one or two but add some different ones.

How is there a good way of giving people a hard time and teasing them? There is no such thing as "in a good way".

Well, I am looking for someone who can give me a lot of attention lol ..not someone who is too tied up with work and kids.

There are good ways of teasing, if you can get that person learn to laugh at them self. I think anyone who can laugh at them self will never run out of something to laugh about, and to me laughter is the best medicine. I tease in a fun way not in a picking on someone and trying to make them feel bad about their self. If someone doesn't get that part then I wouldn't want to be with them. I despise people who are too serious all the time.

I do have a job but I have a lot of free time, so I would prefer someone who has a lot of free time as well. There are people out there that have a life other than their job and family.
Family is important , but it shouldn't take up all your time. Also, a lot of people my age have kids that are grown and on their own who don't require constant care.

Thanks for your review, but it really did me no good.

Nope. They've been deleted.

Might need to go somewhere else to open up your lemonade stand.
