Friends with one photo and a very bland/ 2 liner profile are getting loads of messages.


Yeah, that's par for the course around here. Their profiles are easier to respond to whereas yours is (rightfully) longer and more demanding of the reader. Although, you cannot fully blame it on that alone.

Since you've already tried harder to make it unique, there is little to fault with the profile. However, if I had to choose anything to be critical of it would be this:


I am looking for someone who is thoughtful, happy to try new things together, knows the importance of laughter and agrees that making time for each other is the key to any relationship.


Well this sounds fine and dandy. However, it's too synonymous with friendship. Friends are thoughtful, like trying new things, enjoy laughter and DEFINITELY think about trying to make time for each other (a legitimate issue in any friendship). So, I'd say try and instill a little more actual dating material in it that separates itself from friendship territory. But like I said, there's little to fault with it on its own. Looking at it objectively as I have though is different.
