Well, aren't you just adorable!!

I like your profile. Others more qualified than I will be along with much better critiques, but the only thing I would tell you to remove is the "mostly friends" line in the last paragraph. Women already have friends, they're looking for dates. Don't put yourself in the friend zone right out of the gate.

Absolutely agreed on having any references to 'friends' in a dating profile. Don't even go there.

You do write well - what a treat from the usual phlegm.

How about replacing one of the head shots with maybe something from your work environment?

So how about scrubs (or whatever) in the non-identifying parking lot outside of work!?

Yeah as others have said it's mostly a well written, you come across well.

I would leave the word 'sarcastic' out. Oh yeah, all women want a sarcastic guy, that's reeeaaaal attractive! I'm sure you mean well, but it just sounds like you are going to take the mic out of everyone.

Add in a few lines about the type of person you are looking for, what attributes you find attractive in a woman and what romance means to you. Studies have shown the best profiles have a 70:30 ratio, that's 70% of the word count are about you, 30% about the person you are looking for. Also you come across as very nice, but if you talk about being romantic you move from nice to databale.

I think the smiling photo with the glasses is the best one you have and should be your main. Don't worry about being 'photogenic' you are a good looking guy with some good photos. Maybe have one where you are dressed a bit smarter, just a nice shirt or something will do, show women that if you were to take them on a nice date to a fancy restaurant you can scrub up well.

Hope that helps
