turnabout is fair play, so...yeah. go ahead. tell me how it sucks. (but keep in mind i'm a girl, so if you're mean, I may cry)

I haven't updated this profile in a couple of years, so any suggestions on how to make it awesome are greatly appreciated. :) (I did update the pics today.)

It might be a good idea to throw up a few more pictures, maybe ones of you out and about having a good time -- shows that you aren’t anti-social. Just my $0.02

I recommend replacing all your pictures with better ones. Don't stick your tongue out or make faces. Guy generally don't equate silliness to attractiveness in photos. Being silly is a good thing, but in person. It's all about choosing your spots. With personal ads, you want to put up your most attractive shot. How do you know what works? Well, you can gauge by the number of profile views. Or, we'll assess them for you, here.

The text part is okay but it could use some more specificity in terms of your likes and interests.

Thanks for the constructive criticism. :) I am tucked into bed for the night, but I will probably put up some alternative pic links tomorrow for scrutiny.

so I'm bumping this. I had a couple of friends comb through my FB pics and they suggested these three:

https://sphotos-a.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-snc6/215221_10150208352447125_4995018_n.jpg

http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-prn1/543373_10151014058487125_1724439904_n.jpg

http://sphotos-b.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ash3/530289_10151393909667125_208833407_n.jpg (cropping out kid, and friend suggested I also crop out my boob?)


I'm pretty sure a chick posting pics with a kid is the kiss of death, but what do you think?


Also, any other suggestions for improvements in the text?

Thanks. :) It's my experience that people have a hard time judging themselves; it's a lot easier to look at others and offer helpful criticism than it is to give an unbiased look at oneself.

I updated the 'prefer not to say' section; I agree, it looks sketchy. I also updated my 'profession' section to clarify that I'm in school and not just a lazy bum (not that those things are mutually exclusive by any means).

Use FB pic #1 as your main one. Avoid the pics with the little kid.

(I just noticed that POF recommends people talk about their taste in music, so perhaps people are more formulaic than obsessed...).

Hi OP, the above is pointless and does nothing for your profile, delete that.

This isn't much help, but I can't think of anything that needs changing.
