Any chance you fine people can have a look at my profile and give me some pointers to help as I get a decent amount of profile views but still lacking enough replies.
I've tried to show some of my personality within my profile.

Thank you :)

Hi OP, maybe I just don't get the humor because I am on a different continent, maybe some others will chime in from your area.

As for your personality, I see none other than possibly the humor. Have you seen the profile tips at the top of the page in green?

Take a look if not, follow the guidelines, then post back to THIS thread and someone will help you tweak it.

Best wishes

At 34, the profile tends to sound juvenile. Maybe if you were 22 this would be funny, but if I were a 30-something career woman with energy and enthusiasm, I'd get the impression you were more interested in partying and goofing around. Maybe it's just my impression...

There are definitely some smile-worthy lines, but more on the party-boy than serious boyfriend material style. Sorry... that probably doesn't help...

Your age restrictions are not working in your favor. 10 years younger, but only 3 years older makes it seem like you're leering after young women. Delete the age restriction all together. I promise your inbox will not suddenly be flooded with messages.

Your profile reads like one written by a 24 year old.

I also agree with another poster: why do you set your restrictions to ten years younger, but only three years older?

I'm afraid it's more immature than funny.
Delete the photo in the giant hat.
You don't look like "a few extra pounds".
Interest list is too long. She won't read it. Get rid of the useless ones like "cuddles, laughing, etc".
About Me:
You sound hyperactive and overexcited. Too many !!!'s and words all in CAPS.

I am way too much of an enigma
Really?
This:
Garfield is your bible
You are cool and an attention whore like a dog,
You don't care that I'm a little lazy if I do a 50+ hour work week,
You can laugh at yourself as much as I'd laugh at you and myself.

Could we see a couple of photos where you are not either drunk or snowboarding, thanks.



If you ever find yourself in Prague, do not, I repeat DO NOT use the underground train unless you ABSOLUTELY have too. Trust me on this.


What does this mean and what relevance does it have in a dating profile?

You want to show them
enough to line up a date,
not scarce them away.

You might dial back the "funny meter" just a tad.



I personally like the "hat" photo.
It desperately needs a caption.
A good one.

If you do get a date.
She should know
you won't be showing up
wearing that particular hat.

Or, maybe you will?
It's your most favorite hat.
You always wear that one,
to every first date
that you have ever been on.



Your new caption could push someone on the fence, off.
Which way,
depends on you.

Thanks for all the feedback so far guys I have taken it all on board.

I've toned down on the humor and added some more info plus removed any age restrictions.

How does it look now any better?

Thanks for the help :)

Hi OP, I don't recall exactly what the original looked like, but biggest changes I noticed are simply switching the content around.

My comment is basicly the same as it was the first round, did you actually read the tips?

Best wishes

Ok, I'm English from Herts and I get the written humor. The mental age is as old as this guy is going to get and he's being honest about who he is.
Now I am not going to be PC here because this is your language and I'd tell my cousin this if this was his profile. The picture of you in the hat screams gay! That is one major reason why you are getting views, they want to see if the next picture involves pink feathers and a disco ball.

Remove the main picture in the hat.

I really disliked your "Headline."

Really, a boob joke to start things off?
I suggest changing "that,"
to something more demure.
