The main photo is great but #3, #4, #5, #9 don't show your face (against POF rules). A lot of the rest are very similar, you've got the same expression in a different outfit. I don't know why you need more than 5-6 pics anyway, it doesn't really add anything. I would keep #1, #2, #6, #7 if you crop you mate out, #11 again cropped to you alone.

The about me is generally a lot better than most. First paragraph very good. The last line can go (they all say that). The penultimate paragraph should be moved to 2nd, and remove the negativity and mention of police record (even in jest!).
The 2 parts about the woman you'd like to meet, combine them into one paragraph and rephrase it to the 2nd person, ie. say "you", not "the woman" or "she".

As the guy you need to do all the work sending out messages on here. What kind of messages are you sending, and how many?

My suggestion is to remove that "police record" sentence (even if it's a joke) immediately.
Personal safety is one of the most crucial factors a woman views on her Creepy-O-Meter when viewing a guy.
The last thing you want to do is plant negative thinking (about you) in her head for no reason.

Landscape and postcard pictures can be discarded.
There are plenty of places online to view those things.
Keep this about YOU and help her envision herself with you...the the places you've visited.

Otherwise it is pretty upbeat, straightforward, and pretty solid.
You'll naturally wish to continue to ensure all photographs remain dated and captioned.
Good luck with your romantic search.

GoHudson...no need for individual responses in the thread.
We all see them all in sequence.
Separate messages do not "ping" individuals.

Yeah, it's pretty good but a few minor things.


There is no point showing photos that don't have you in, or when you are so dark we can't tell it's you. Women want to date you, not a sunrise. Take out all the photos that either don't have you in or your face isn't clear and you'll have a good set.

Text is pretty good, again a few minor things

'About me


Me:'
Doesn't need the the 'me:' does it?

"You don’t not mind a guy...." Doesn't make any sense.
