Do I need a profile overhaul?Page 1 of 1    
I have been using POF for a few months now. I have sent my fair share of messages and I understand I will not get a response from every girl. But I would like to know if my profile plays a major role in why I dont hear from any girls.


Thank you in advance.

All your sentences start with I.

Add something about the type of woman/relationship you seek.

It's great that family, friends and God are important to you. But women on this site are none of those things. That sentence gives off the impression you don't really have space in your life for a relationship.

Working, not workin.

First, are you aware that many if not most women are afraid of guns and think that shooting venison is the same as killing innocent Bambi's out there?
Next, you list a bunch of music stuff, but you don't give any details, and that's what women want a lot of : details. Do you play , jazz, country, folk music? Who are some of your favorite musicians? What are some favorite pieces?
Same about your work, sports, and cars. GIVE US DETAILS !!!
Women are very curious and want to know lots of things about you, but you only offer the most basic words. You are leaving a lot of blanks not filled in, do you understand what I mean?

Your interest list should include things a woman can do with you.
As it stands, you profile is geared towards finding an activity buddy (an outdoorsy guy). You like cars, 4 wheeling, hunting, and sports.
What else do you like to do?
You have guitar, piano, sax in your interests but don't mention if you play them or admire them.
What is your personality?
What type of woman do you hope to meet?
 You go first

The main photo you have now is really cute, but too far away to be effective on a cellphone app. Can you crop it closer?

I personally enjoyed shooting and there are probably many women in your area that do, too. The bigger deal is can you cook what you bring home?

What are you taking your degree in?
