. . . what could be an issue with what I have listed.

I strive for brutal honesty in life and in a relationship.

Brutal honesty?

I have a feeling you'll say . . .
"You looks fat in those pants."

Perhaps tone down the "brutal" segment.
At our age, who wants to hear brutal honesty?
Especially a woman with plenty of estrogen,
bedazzling glitter and amazingly emotional feelings?

Sure, I prefer my honesty straight up.
Sometimes even a little sugar coated.
Not brutally delivered.
Sounds mean spirited.

I suggest removing the word "brutal."
There is enough brutality in our world.
It is not helping you to kiss the girl,
with "that" on your profile.


You have three "Interests" listed that are too personal.
Hugs, Kisses, Late Night Sexting, er.... I mean texting

There will be time enough later,
to talk of these things.

On your introductory dating profile,
it's way too soon.
Good luck!

Hey Tommy,

A few things jump out at me.

But first things first, I am a Dad and I love my kids. They are my priority in life.
We know this from the boxes above. Sounds like the cliche that men hate to read..."My children are my life/priority/____"

I am a happily divorced Dad
3rd time we have to read about your dad status.
Happily divorced is odd.

Well you certainly like to cover all the bases:



(you forgot ponds)

Holding hands
(you left out sex)

Over the top:

I love the mountains, but I love to be near the ocean. I can spend hours in front of the water letting it wash over my mind, my heart and my soul. I also love to get in, swim and let it absorb me completely...

So I'll pray for you, your family, friends; and enjoy a pint at the pub with my hand on your ass later that night! If that rubs you the wrong way, I am sorry; but that is where I have ended up in life and what I have learned about the faith I have.
Also might want to say sorry to the crickets in your inbox after she reads this.

I enjoy being outside: hiking, biking and walking. But I'm just as happy with a night in: pizza, movie and our favorite drink to share. (But I would prefer the first part - being out and about)
"just as happy" means you like it equally which has the last part making no sense.

Sorry, sometimes my honesty is offense intended.

You have some pretty good pics up there.
#2, 6, 7 look not so great. Looks like camera distortion.

Time to add some more interests and flesh out the text.
Instead of just food, put dining out, cooking, grilling...whatever you do.
You can put back one of your water interests and tell how it regenerates you...I feel the same about bodies of water.
Besides swimming, do you have a boat?

Do you like fairs, festivals (music or craft), concerts, car shows, flea markets, mini golf, amusement parks, farmers markets, etc?
Think of some activities you'd like to enjoy as part of a couple.
The more descriptive, the better she can tell if you'd click.
Write as you speak--so much friendlier.

Don't forget to add the type of woman you seek.

I hate to butt in on your special moment OP,
but I have a profile observation worth mentioning.

You have four ultra zoomed in facial pictures.
They made me want to back up a step.
Too close for comfort. Keep the black shirt one,
and lose the rest of those tightly cropped pictures.

None of your pictures were taken outside?
(Except one, in a high density urban area.)

This from a man that lists these things in his profile. . .

Life is an adventure!

Beach Bum

Road trips
The beach

I get a lot of freedom. . . I can get away fairly easy.

I enjoy being outside: hiking, biking and walking

So replace those redundant photos
with you partaking in some of your
listed adventurous attributes.

Because right now
it appears you've been chained
to the desk at work, and can't get outside.

Hi Tommy
User name made me think you live in a studio apt
The ultra close up ( second one) needs to go - yesterday! Too many head shots
You over use the word Love
Doesn't really say much ( some cliches) nothing about what it is like to be with you, nor the type of woman you are seeking.
Naps as an Interest? Hammocks? no.
