Hey, can anyone please do a profile review for me? I'd like any suggestions that I could get to make my profile better! I haven't been having as many replies as I would like to have! So if anyone can help me out, let me know please!

Hi Spencer.

Love your user name.

"My name is Spencer. I have an undergraduate degree from Southern Connecticut State University, where I graduated with a 3.6 degree. I played football there as well. I'm currently going for a Masters Degree in Social Work."
^^^
She already knows you have a bachelors. No need to mention GPA. Just mention you are studying for your masters in social work.

"I currently work per diem at a residential care facility with people who have mental disorders. When I'm not working per diem there, I'm working as a substitute teacher in New Haven.I recently did an awesome internship at Hamden High School."

"During this time, I'm currently pursuing my dream to be a professional wrestler as well.I'm a local pro wrestler. I've wrestled in PA, MA, OH, NY, CT. NH,NJ, and I'm going to Canada in August!"

^^^
Both are overly wordy. Diem mentioned twice. Wresting mentioned three times. Edit.

"I don't want to waste my time. "

Negative, remove.

"Even though it's 2013, I still believe in chivalry. There's nothing wrong with pulling out a chair for a girl, holding the door open, or doing anything that I can to protect her."
^^^
Don't time stamp your profile.

"This really doesn't matter at all. If you're compatible with someone, you can have fun doing ANYTHING."

Bad. It does matter to her. She wants it to be memorable. Magical. Where are you meeting?

Better pics, as soon as possible.

Good luck.

Spence - Take a few moments and read some web articles on dating profile photos, and compare their suggestions with the pictures you have posted. This is a HUGE reason women don't take you seriously.
