|It reads more like a project than a dating profile. But- we can fix it.|
Your main photo should not have the sunglasses - we want to see your eyes and bright smile. Change that asap. A few more full length casual shots would be good - got anything from a recent holiday?
The Interests are OK. What about a favourite food? tv show? author? ... something light so your viewer can get a sense of your personality and humour.
The goals list is dry. Instead of bullet format, why not just simply say you're hoping to be able to retire early and travel. If a woman reading the profile isn't on the same career/lifetrack, she's going to be gone really quick. Or - even better, if you're going to be incredibly wealthy, does she even need to bother working?? I'd sign up for that.
You say you like to make people laugh. Prove it.
What kind of lady are you hoping to meet? Are you open to someone of any ethnicity/background? Someone who may already have a child(ren) of her own? (If not, don't even mention it.) But do describe the personality type you find most attractive.
When you send a first contact message, keep it very short, light humoured and specific to one topic in her profile. Ask only one question so she has an easy way to respond if she chooses. If there is no reply within a few days, consider that your response and move on.
ps- when I read your username, my first reaction was 'Dog chow'. Any reason you went with Purina backwards?
