Have some good stuff in there OP, but it is hard to follow, mostly because your about you is seperated top and bottom.

Go through each sentence, if it is WHO you are put in the top paragragh. If it is WHAT you enjoy doing, put is in the second paragraph.

Then to close describe the woman you seek, which personality traits do you find most attractive?

Close up smiling main photo would be appreciated (let someone else take it).

Change occupation to Radio Host/Student.

What are your introduction messages like?

Intro messages shouldn't be more than 3-4 sentences initially, but it sounds like you're on the right track. Do hurry up with a good smiling main photo. First impressions on these sites are often your only chance to get their attention.

Delete the first line and the last two lines.

New photos! I like your main picture, but not as a main.

Lookin much better OP! Just two things to ponder.

WHAT you enjoy is still "mixed" in WHO you are, it makes it hard to follow. WHO you are first, then a new paragraph od WHAT you enjoy.

Your description of the woman you seek is weak, mostly just assumed givens, honest, kind, caring, fun, etc.

Just an FYI...I prefer main pictures with your eyes clearly visible...no sunglasses or low hats. Good luck!

Bless you my Dreamer - so you are 37 and will date a 20 year old, but only date up 3 years? Hmm
Yes it is a bit wordy.. overuse of the word I. Sometimes I can glimpse your wit but it gets muddled with the rest.
The things list as what you enjoy doing sound pretty solo, talk about what you can do as a couple.
Your Main isn't the best, it look all bunchy ( the hoodie)

So to answer your Q it is " longwided" hehe
Good luck

if you can't show you are passionate it is merely a word.
Good you have a laundry list - bear in mind so do women so try to meet somewhere in the middle

I'd delete the first paragraph and the first sentence of the last one. I like the 2nd photo best, although others might say it makes you look drunk.

Looks like one of the anise flavored alcoholic drinks like raki or ouzo.

Capitalize "i" and ikea.

I wouldn't say it's negative, more like trying-too-hard-to-be-clever, which does not score points with the opposite sex. What works best for most people is friendly and sincere, there is plenty of time later on to prove how clever you are, but what good is it if you never meet?
I think your headline is self-defeating, why not just say "I love bicycles" ?
Down below you claim to love poverty, and while that is another clever line(not), what is a woman to think of you as a possible date , or God forbid, boyfriend material?

If the women like your profile and you are getting replies to messages, what are you looking for?
It doesn't seem negative to me.

My guess is that most women are hesitant to date a 38 yr old man who is a FT student and only works PT.
She's likely thinking she will have to pay for dates, you have a couple more yrs til you get a degree, and you seem fun loving but immature.
You are nearly 40 but seeking a 26 yr old? Good luck with that.
A woman will read that you want someone 12 yrs younger but only 2 yrs older and click next.

Any reason you posted a pic of your stereo and albums? It's violating POF rules, and is a nonsense pic. Nobody wants to see your stuff.

Sorry, my bad. I could swear it said in that paragraph that you work PT.

You have "Graduate/Student" as occupation. "I'm currently in my fifth year of being a student." You didn't say you have 4 mo left in the program. That makes a person assume certain things since a Masters usually takes several years past a 4 yr Bachelor's Degree. It's better to be clear. Like "Proud to say I'm graduating soon!".

You spelled ridiculous wrong.

Looks like you are polished up and ready to launch.
