3 of your pics are very similar. They are all in the same location from the same terrible underneath angle and all bad quality and poorly lit. Delete all 3 of these. The other 3 pics are MUCH better. You could do with a couple more of this standard.

The headline, not sure what you're going for here? Most people would like both.

Your interests field has some good stuff but also a lot of pointless filler. Can't see the wood for the trees. Delete the useless stuff that everyone likes, such as music, film, movies (duplication), food, friends, family, etc. You need to stand out from the crowd here.

The about me is pretty good, but I'd lose the first line (pointless) and the first sentence of the first para. Go from "I'm an ambitious...".

The first date seems a little complex, I mean you'll probably need to meet many girls before finding a suitable one. Are you going to take them all on the clipper? I would recommend keeping it simple. The second line, you're the man, you need to be decisive here, not do whatever she wants.

Get rid of the message filters, they don't achieve anything except making you look a little creepy. Many would think it's inappropriate that you'd date an 18 year old, and having an upper limit of 40 seems like you're looking for an older woman. There's no reason whatsoever for a man to have ANY age restriction on here.

You are probably a lovely young man but the photos make you look 16. Seriously. Maybe it's the hair, maybe it's the angle.. I don't know, but I expect many women in your actual age range will think you're much younger and pass simply on that alone.

Beyond that, the profile was simply OK. A dash of personality and humour would help out there, too.

Hi Steve,

You need more pics.
I agree you look very young...I think a hairstyle change could help that.

I would like to see more interests--activities you enjoy.

There's really no excitement to your text; nothing jumps out at me that says you'd be fun and interesting.

I know it's not changeable, but shorter men report that online dating is more difficult. This is why your pics and write up need to be stellar.
