I know my profile probably comes off screaming "Geek" but other than that any thing I could do to improve upon it? I know I could use a few more photos but its kinda hard with just my cell to take pictures. Alright enough gabbing, Rate away!

^^^What Lynette said.

But "geek" can be endearing (Big Bang Theory), scary (Unibomber), or just off putting (the guys that played Magic The Gathering every lunch). You don't show a guy that is endearing or scary. I'm an old guy, so this may be a generational thing, but listing a song called "Snuff" by a band called "Slipknot" on a dating profile just seems like a really, really bad idea to me.

I totally agree with lynetteinaz. One pic seems to show you in a bathroom? Really? Why would you post a picture of yourself there? The other pic has as its main feature, your nostrils. You need some better pics!

Yea the lighting in the bathroom is the best in my house, probably should get an outdoor one but mainly the bathroom has a big mirror to help see what the pic will look like though the camera.

Thxs for the info so far will take more pics and probably keep upgrading my profile.

Yeah, do the pictures.

There are a few things I'd wonder if I were 30 years younger and looking at your profile.

What are you studying?
Do you have your own place?
Do you have any outdoor activities you could share with a partner?
If you 'wanna' be a writer, don't you think you could clean up the slang?

You seem to be heavily into the fantasy/sci-fi/goth stuff that is so cool with teenage boys right now. Other than Dancing, is there anything else you can think of that may be female-friendly? It's hard to imagine having an adult conversation, much less relationship, with someone who is so focused on fantasy and make-believe. Maybe there are girls out there that also spend all their time indoors in front of computers, who knows.

I think for you the key is to channel your inner writer and write a picture that will inspire your viewer to WANT to meet you. What do you offer? Don't just say "I'm funny" or "I'm a nice guy". Prove it. I'm sure you can do better than this version.
