A primary pic should be of just you, a head/shoulder shot and yes, flash that smile!

Have more pics - go for a variety!


It's unreal how difficult it is to just find someone to love...

Remove that... you're coming off a tad needy.

Have a read of the profile writing tips at the top of the forum page. There's great advice there.

Mention in a couple of sentences about the type of woman you seek.

You're only 20 and seeking long term. You'd be better off as stating 'dating.' There's very few young women about your age that want to settle down - their life is just beginning and stating long term, just may scare them away!

Here's a few pointers RE: initial msgs to women:

Ask her one or two questions based on her profile. Do not bombard her.
Don't rattle on and on about yourself.
Keep it light.
Add a touch of humour.
Don't comment on her physical attributes.
Don't ask/beg her to reply/check you out.

Headline is boring. Your thumbnail has two people in it and you don't make it clear which one is you. Same with last pic. You need at least one good clean head and shoulders picture of just you to be your thumbnail.

"Feel free to message with questions or just chat." That's your job, you're the man. It's great when girls contact you, but saying this gives off a bad impression, and it's boring.

Really, your whole profile sounds like everyone else's, and that's a big mistake. Show some personality, don't be so generic. Say something funny, say something interesting, say something that someone will want to find out more about.

Hi OP, honestly? You are trying WAY too hard to impress, just be yourself.

Have you seen the profile tips at the top of the page in green?

Best wishes

You have one single picture in your gallery.



It appears to be of you,
wearing pajama bottoms
taking a selfie
in a bathroom mirror.


Personality --- Adventurer



Come on! How much "adventure" can you find in the bathroom?
On second thought, don't answer that.

Your solo picture doesn't match your "personality."

More pictures of you
doing something adventurous
would be an improvement.

No point giving another review until you have put into place the good advice you have already been given, here are the highlights:



A primary pic should be of just you, a head/shoulder shot and yes, flash that smile!

Have more pics - go for a variety!




Headline is boring.




Make your first line "When I graduate my goal is to become a real life CSI".
I presume you get that show in canada. It's a more interesting way to say it whilst not giving away all the details on what you're studying. Now that's intriguing.

Hi Phil,

Let your name show.
Only photo is a very classy mirror selfie in bathroom in your flannel pj's.
If this is you at your best, wonder what you look like when you go casual.

What's your personality? Geeky? Jock? Outdoorsy?
