Alright so I'd appreciate someone telling me what I need to change with my profile, as I'm getting a terrible response rate. For every 10 messages I send, I'll be lucky to receive one reply. I don't think I'm an unattractive guy in terms of looks, so what could be the cause? Thanks

You have 2 sentences. Try again.

You have a master's degree? Not unheard of at 22, I'm just checking (some people here think working toward a degree is the same thing as having a degree).

I think it's a good profile for what you're seeking, which is NSA sex and hookups. 1 in 10 is a very good response rate in that arena - it's very competitive.

If you're looking for something more then you need to re-think your strategy.

Agree with both commenters above. I see a profile that says, "look at me, I have muscles". Eh...

You have a tacky half-naked torso selfie, no "interests", and nothing to talk about except you like to have 'fun'. So all you're offering is a body? Honey, girls can get that anywhere. What makes you special? Literally, what makes you special? Speaking 5 languages isn't going to help if you're not looking for 'conversation'. And you're really not, are you.

As already suggested, there are other sites that would get you faster results for what you're really looking for.

Hi neighbor,


I don't think I'm an unattractive guy in terms of looks, so what could be the cause?

This is LA and your pictures "scream" (with jazz hands) West hollywood and gay.
Your hair up and styled like Glee (Kurt and Blaine) is one reason.
"If" you are straight you are sending the wrong signal.

all around alpha. Message me if you'd like to know more about me.


Alphas don't need to proclaim themselves as alpha. They show it by writing good text in their profiles. They send confident messages instead of saying "message me if you'd like to know more".

The shirtless photo is against site rules, and even if allowed, it's douchy and lame (mirror showing phone). Two other photos need cropping.

The sleeveless red shirt has discolorations that look like stains. If even I notice them, most girls will too.

Shallow. There isn't anything in that profile that would convince somebody to take you seriously. Your "about me" section looks like it was cobbled together by pre-school pupil. Good luck with that.

I agree with the others.

Your profile is perfect for a student seeking cute girls.

you are getting 10% strike rate, much more than most. You seem attractive and tall but as a student you probably don't have much money to spare, right???? At your age you should be doing okay in real life.
