here it is a sailor... I don't want to be just a fishPage 1 of 1    
Hi fish and mermaids,
what about my sailor's profile?
I tried to be funny with the title and I hope all the rest is interesting too. Instead of fishing I'm looking for a sweet mermaid... is that too difficult? :D

I don't think the "wading into the ocean" pictures adds anything to help your cause, nor the "diving" pic. Holding parallel to a bar is pretty cool, but there's a woman in the picture - better to crop her out.

In their place, add two pics, head/shoulders, that show off your dazzling smile. Including your current main, rotate the three every week or so for maximum exposure.

Adorable and adventurous.
Add some more pics where we can see your face.
You look 10 years younger.

I think your writing style shows English is your second language and that's perfectly okay.

Professional is not a job. Tell your actual job.

At 35 you should know whether you want children...the women do.


I don't like people who often complaints and that can't find a positive aspect in daily things.
If you are optimistic, don't write about negatives or what you don't like.


Anyway, this looks like a showcase where we have to sell our person... but I'm not like this, I will not write words and words about myself; I've got a professional CV not a dating one :D
That's exactly what it is.
It need not be a CV; it's just a peek into your world and the most successful profiles give more details.
So...tell us more.
Where do you volunteer and what do you get from it? My passion is dog rescue/fostering so I wrote about that when I had an active profile.
You could tell about a favorite SCUBA dive, place you traveled to, write something about your job.

She need to picture you and whether she wants to date you.

You will do very well her with a few fixes.

Well I like you for using the word Bricolage!
Main is great, I agree about the wading into the water.. that one could be replaced.
I am guessing English is your second language so the text is good, I'd remove the negs and add and S to Sports.
You could flesh it out a bit more ( favorite place to visit, etc)
I like seeing a first name instead of About Me
Best of luck
