Please review my profile. Would you be interested?Page 1 of 1    
POF just deleted a bunch of my selfless bathroom selfies, no I'm afraid my profile is lacking the essentials needed to attract a proper mate. It may just be me being overly critical of myself, so I'd appreciate a second opinion.
Any advice is welcome
I wont take your criticism/praise personally.

Hi OP, not very good, here are my suggestions.


I'm laid back


So are about 75% of all the other men on here, the purpose of a profile is to tell the ladies what makes you unique, not the same as most other men. Cliche and boring delete

enjoy the outdoors


Relisting interests is VERY boring, either delete of go into more detail about the activities you enjoy.


and good company


Well this is earth shattering news, someone that actually prefers good company over bad company! Do I need to say it or do you get the sarcasm?


Here to meet some people, make friends, go on a few dates and see what happens.


Geeeze OP, this is just wrong on so many fronts, totally useless waste of space. delete


I'm in no rush and really looking for someone with similar interests so we don't drag each other to things we despise.


This is generally assumed, MOST people want a partner with some interests in common. No need to say you are not in a rush either, just delete the works.


I don't like to fight or argue over petty things.


Avoid the negatives at all costs. delete


I'm a firm believer that things can be solved with being open.


Certainly not great, but it's the best thus far. Everyone knows communication is key to success, it is one of those assumed things.


If you don't like that, better to figure that out now than delay the inevitable.

OP Do NOT speak of failure in your profile, NOTHING negative. delete


Trust is a must.


What I call an assumed given, useless in a profile. delete


Message Me, I don't get on here very often. Very Busy


Delete the works

Have you seen the tips at the top of the page in green?

You have a BA degree. Mention the field of study it was in.

You say you are one of the best Mas Effect 3 players in the world. Really? Explain that.

Add some interest to your profile by describing the last new thing you tried.

You didn't need countless shirtless selfies of yourself anyway. We can see that you are buff. Leave something to the woman's imagination until and when she meets you. Shirtless selfies in the mirror tend to send out too many sexual connotations too early in the game.

Photos of you camping/fishing/working on a car will go a long way in putting your money where your mouth is.

"Muscle" shots and shirtless photos are really douchey. Just.. don't.

The profile is delivered in bullet-format without the bullets. Facts, no personality. Where's this alleged sense of humour?

I look forward to a rewrite.

And good riddance to them. If they were still here, we would have told you to get rid of them and BURN them anyway. So POF did you a favour.

You say you want a nerdy gamer girl, but you put athletic personality and have a lot of outdoor/physical hobbies? So the nerdy gamer girl reads it and sees you enjoy lots of outdoor stuff, and presses "next". The active outdoor type reads the headline and presses "next". You seem to be shooting yourself in the foot here by excluding all matches.

Don't care about other matches, nerdy gamer girl is a must have attribute.

It's kind of hard to put into a profile without it being taken the wrong way, though, I will try.

And thanks all for the recommendations! They are very much appreciated.

Nerdy gamer girls are few and far between on this site, and the number of guys seeking them is very high. You're entering an extremely competitive arena. You need to be THE BEST match for them, to have any hope of success.

Yet you talk almost exclusively about outdoor interests. Nerdy gamer girls are generally attracted to nerdy gamer guys.

That's what I mean by excluding all matches.

You exclude nerdy gamer girls and non-nerdy gamer girls. There is nobody left!

Any advice is welcome




If that's the case, I'll just jump right in!
And welcome to the Profile Review.




Education --- Bachelors Degree

Profession --- Gas station clerk



Something smells fishy in Denmark!
Are you confusing a GED with a Bachelors Degree?
It happens sometimes.









About Me
So I was told to put in here what makes me different from every other guy on this site. "Unique" LOL

I have
I am
I was
I am
I'm
I enjoy
I'd go as far to say I'm probably the best fisherman on this site.
I like
I'm one of


Even people expert in the three "R's"
Readin' Rightin" and Rithmatic,
know not to start every sentence with "I".
So change that up!

Additionally, I would feel better if you changed
the "fisherman bit" to "the second best."

"That" would add a touch of humour.

As you know us, 20 percent of fishermen,
catch 80 percent of the fish!
Good luck!

^ you call that a review? That's more you spouting nonsense.
Keep your GED level opinions to professional wrestling.
And I'm the best fisherman this site has to offer. I'm sure to find a woman who likes eating fish at the very least.

You need more pictures up. They are what sells you - Main shows you are handsome, second one can't really tell what you look like.
I like to see a first name instead of About Me
You could flesh it out more - describe the type of woman you are drawn to - give her an idea what it is like to date you
No children. Pretty young to be set on that, however, you realize that will stop single Mothers from contacting you hmm
Lots of guys lie about their height - get up at least one full body picture ( and no not a shirtless bathroom selfie) If you wanna show off your body then get to the beach get a photo there/
Not fond of the user name - so come up with a killer Header to off set it.
Remove the best fisherman - makes you sound like a player

Yes I do. The more nonsense I read,
the more nonsense I spout.


Your profile seems to fit you somehow.
Don't make any changes. It is, what it is.

Gee thanks buddy!
I know my profile is pretty cool being #1 fisherman and all.
I mean its not too bad with the lack of competition either.
But really, does the information even matter?
I thinks it's there for the naïve and shallow person to think any of it is worth reading.
Every profile mentions "I'm a nice person" or "I'm a real catch"
I'll meet the real person through spending time with them.
It takes at least 6 months before you see who a person really is.

you need a full length shot of yourself and smiling. You don't have to flex your muscles, we can see how you are built if you load a decent shot in good light. I agree that we need to know someone for at least 6 months and then it would have to be often, to get an idea of who they really are, in all sorts of situations. The profile will be read if the pictures and the stats appeal to a gal, upfront.

You may want to rethink the 'moving in' together language in your first date, especially as you talk about needing 6 months to get to know each other.

If you are an 'exceptionally great' cook, perhaps you could get a photo of you in the kitchen actually cooking something.
If you are the best fisherman on the site, perhaps you have a photo of you with an actual fish. money.... mouth... repeat.

By the way, my husband was the best fisherman on that site. Just sayin'....

Yeah I'll just take more pictures then, with a shirt on this time so PoF wont delete. Thanks everyone for the advice. Will try and improve but the artistic juices just aren't flowing.
