Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

While regular posting is now disabled, you can continue to view all threads until the end of June 2019. Event Hosts can still create and promote events while we work on a new and improved event creation service for you.

Thank you!

WHAT profile? Watch the video at the bottom of the "Edit Profile" section, then rewrite everything.

The best profiles show personality and are well-written with a touch of humor. Internet dating is a visual and written medium. Your profile should answer these questions:

1. Why are you? What makes you unique? What can you bring to a relationship?
2. What do you want in a relationship?
3. What kind of woman do you want? Use descriptive words.

You look angry and grouchy in your photos. Please get new photos taken showing you SMILING. Women want to see your eyes and smile. A genuine smile is inviting and attractive. Women will see your main photo as a tiny thumbnail pic on their cell phones.

Your main photo should be a brightly lighted, head-and-shoulders shot, showing you smiling and looking at the camera. No hat or sunglasses. Have your photos taken outdoors for better lighting, with a real camera for better quality. Other photos should show you outdoors, doing activities you enjoy and SMILING. You need at least one full body shot, fully clothed of course.

"Hate Timewasters" is a negative headline. Your headline should be upbeat and short. "Life is Amazing!" is my headline. Your first date idea, "Let's see if we get that far," sounds negative and suspicious. Instead suggest getting together for coffee and a chat.

Interests should be activities you enjoy and would enjoy doing with a woman. Get rid of everything negative in your profile. No woman wants to go out with a negative, angry guy.

Delete the first 2 sentences and the last sentence.

Use proper punctuation, grammar, and capitalization.

Add a paragraph describing the type of woman you are seeking using personality traits.
