Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

Thank you!

I'm not new to websites like POF and Match, but now that I moved to another country, I'm much more active and serious about meeting women. I'd like an honest review of my profile, so I can make the necessary changes.

The problem is that you don't sound really serious about meeting women in your profile. It reads more like a rundown of something you recently did rather than a fuller description of what you actually have to offer as a potential date/partner. In other words, you want someone to show you around town but you don't need a dating profile for that .

"Date but nothing serious" doesn't help. I've seen countless profiles with that intent and yet their intentions are still more clear than what you've provided.

You will need clearer photos (no red-eye or blur).

You also completely missed the Interests field. This is where a viewer skims to get ideas of your personality and humour and things you may have in common. Go for at least 8-10 things that describe your 'favourites' (tv show, comedian, travel spot, country of origin, music group/genre/artist, sport you play, team you follow, food/cuisine... clues!)

In the stats, you put "Prefer not to say" for the Kids choice. You hate kids? It's perfectly OK to say you don't want kids, but Prefer not to Say gives the impression there's something weird behind your choice.

Thank you very much! I actually didn't notice I had 'Prefer not to say' in that section. Thank you for pointing that out. Made some changes again.

Looks like you have a lot going for you: handsome, tall, good career, educated....
Gotta make yourself shine in the "about me" and you'll be golden.
What's your personality?
Add some humor since you are a comedian.
Expant the interest list to include activities to do with a woman.
What type of woman are you looking for?

I love Guinness and Flogging Molly :)
