Am I so terrible?Page 1 of 1    
O.k., I admit, those pictures aren't the greatest, but all I can do is selfies. I thought my description clean and concise. Am I really so repulsive? And, no, I am not stoned in the second picture. lol

Bracing for critique. Go ahead. Be gentle. )

Your write up is nice, but photos are not good. Have someone snap a few decent photos of you. You must know 1 person that knows how to use a camera. Delete you mail filters. Unless youre getting flooded with messages, you dont need them.

Hello Particle.

You have so much going for you.
All you need to do is fix your advertising and that is why you are here.

1. You MUST smile.
2. I like the combination of shaved and non shaved. Gives the ladies the option and they can see you both ways.
4. Have a friend take some pictures or use that brilliant mind of yours to set the timer and take some well lit outdoor shots. Perhaps with your beloved woods in the background. Chopping firewood? I think you would look spectacular in an action shot.
6. Some close up face and shoulders and full body.
8. At least one dressed up to go out.
10. Hide the upgraded logo. Unnecessary and in some cases can make you look desperate.
12. Remove all mail filters. You can screen the multitudes of messages like the rest of us.

Good luck.

Oh and remember to SMILE.

Very good and thank you. I'm working on it. I do in fact have a GoPro. I'll have to set up some shots.

I thought my description clean and concise.

I read your profile expecting clean and concise.

particle0101: One thing missing........

One testicle, guess which one?
Your wallet? Must be in your other pants.
Upper teeth? Is that why you don't smile?

Ah, I see........
You explained the answer
to your "Headline" question
lower down, in your "About Me".

Athletic body type

At 46, lot's of guys begin to start
showing a "spare tire". A head to toe
photograph might dispel that notion.


Nights without words
Men like cuddling too

Awww, a cuddler! So is my GrandMa!
Even though, she is about a hundred years old
you two, might be a match!

Wouldn't it be better to keep that "cuddling"
information quiet. At least until you have found
each other to be on the same page? Otherwise
it has a creepy vibe to saying it "loud and proud,"
on your introductory dating profile.

I want a relationship with a woman who is capable of both intelligent conversation or a night without words.

That unusual "night without words" shows up again.
Since you write about it twice,
it must be important to you.

Your profile would read cleaner and more concise
If you elaborated on that subject, a little bit more.

Most women I know
don't have a "mute" button.
Like the TV remote control.

A night of silence? No banter, no words?
No whispering sweet nothings in her ear?
Sounds like it tilts the creepy
anti-social meter into the red zone?

I suggest making a few adjustments to your profile.
You know, to clean it up.
Good luck.

Particle101...welcome to the Profile Reviews forum.
POF groups interests into 3 columns. It looks best from an aesthetic perspective to have 9, 12, or 15 total interests.
You will wish to remove "cuddling" and replace it with another. It's way too soon to be talking about cuddling.

Have a friend take two dozen well-lit, outdoor, crisp photographs using a high-quality digital camera...which is preferred over a fuzzy cellphone. Include a variety of backgrounds, activities, and bring various articles of clothing to create greater interest. Be mindful of your backgrounds because people DO notice those details. Ensure plenty of them do not feature masks, costumes, hats, helmets, or sunglasses. Upload the best images and ensure you date and caption each pic...which also makes them more fun to read. Certainly resist the urge to use "selfie" snapshots taken in a mirror. You'll wish to ensure a full-length body snapshot remains in the mix. Good luck with your romantic search.

ok the pictures have been addressed ( people pay big money to have lips like yours, honest lucky you ) but ditch the unshaven photo. Have one up in something other than a t shirt.
For the love of Prada remove " clean" from the traits you seek
You don't give me any idea of what it would be like to date you.
The profile is rather flat - you work, you pay your bills ( Me too!) But what makes you YOU?
I like to see a first name instead of about me
Best of luck
