Could it be my breath?? lolPage 1 of 1    
Hi everyone!
I would really appreciate some advise to make my profile better. It seems to be the common problem, no one replying. I have sent probably close to 100 messages to ladies and nothing. Don't worry, you can tell me anything, I wont take offense to it! Thank you everyone!

1. Pics: Need better ones. No baby, bf, nor meme pics. Get some photos taken outdoors.
2. I don't want to know about your siblings and grandchildren. Just tell us if your children live with you.
3. We know your age and general features from the specs up top and photos. No need to repeat them. It also says "About Louie", so don't repeat your name.
4. Get rid of last two sentences. You should add what you need now, it's not a blog you keep updating and women know to contact you, but you'll be doing most of the initial contacts.

We can't see your face in your main picture. Delete the photo with your grown daughter. Don't use photos of yourself with other women. That's poison on a dating website. Women assume you are married or in a relationship.

START OVER. Read the Profile Writing Tips highlighted in green. Your profile is an advertisement to help you meet the kind of women you want to date. The best profiles are well written, upbeat and interesting, with a dash of humor. Internet dating is a written, visual medium. Correct spelling and grammar are important because it shows you care about details. Write in short paragraphs. Nobody wants to read a wall of words.

Describe your best characteristics and strengths, activities you enjoy, and what you are looking for in a relationship. Talk a little about the type of woman you want to meet using personality traits.

You have 8 seconds to make a good impression. Women will see your main photo as a tiny pic the size of a saltine cracker on their cell phone screens. If your main photo is not clear, bright and attractive, they move on. A genuine smile is inviting, warm and attractive. Women want to see your eyes and smile.

Please get new photos taken outdoors for better lighting, and with a quality digital camera, not a fuzzy cell phone. Your main photo should be a head-and-shoulder shot, showing you SMILING and looking at the camera. You also need one full body shot, again taken outdoors and smiling.

Other pictures should show you outdoors, doing activities you enjoy. No hats, sunglasses, alcohol or stupid poses. You must be in every picture. Ask a friend to take 24 pictures of you outdoors with a digital camera, wearing different clothes in various locations. Upload the best 8. Caption and date each photo-giving the location and year- to make the photos more interesting and clear.

Interests should be ACTIVITIES you enjoy and would enjoy doing with a woman. Choose 12 or 15 activities. Since interests are displayed in three columns, this will give you three equal columns that look sharp on your profile.

Your headline should be short and upbeat, and say something about you. "Life is Amazing!" is my headline.

Good luck in your romantic search.

Hi Louie,

If those aren't your bikes in the pics, get rid of them. Save them for your buddies. I love a nice Harley myself but pics posing with them is like a hunter posing with somebody else's dead deer.
Do the parents of that baby know she's on a dating site features in 3 photos?
Does your best friend know she is here, too?
Your main/primary pic should be a close up of your face. Many view the site on cell phones.

This is the only thing worth keeping:
I also love to travel, listen to live music, cook, go away for the weekend, some sporting events and even just sitting home spending a lazy Sunday together on the couch.

Write about your personality, what you do in free time. Elaborate on an interest. Don't write about children, grandchildren, friends, or family. They aren't coming on the dates.

Write about the woman you hope to meet.

"I have sent probably close to 100 messages to ladies and nothing."
Trust me, Louie, it's not your breath. You have a LOT to learn about women and dating, but I give you points for at least coming to the right place to learn.
Your photos are mostly lousy, and your words are mostly lousy.
Let's begin - First you need a nice smiling photo of yourself, your pic #2 is good, and the pic with the yellow bike is good, delete the rest. You should have more than 2 pics, but it's not carved in stone.
Your words, however, are a disaster. That's why you are zero for 100, the words. I don't like your POF name, and I don't like your headline. You're a good guy? Prove it ! Don't tell us, SHOW us !!
That's your goal in life? To put another name on your body? Funny, no takers yet. Hmm, I wonder why , , , ,
Louie, isn't it obvious that having a bike and some space on your chest isn't enough to land you that great woman?

Your best friend looks uncomfortable in your bear grasp. And the adjoining pix has the B-word? Most women are long gone!

The woman in your life comes in 4th place after: 1. Your job 2. Your kids 3. Your motorcycle
