I had to face the reality that I am older and less attractive. Your pics are only a tad better than mine, and that is not good. At least you have four instead of two.

Best to post this in Profile Review. Pics go with profile, unless you're objectively hot. Tons o dudes online. So I'd pay attention to that too.

Your 1st picture has a facial expression of "B!tch?! Where'd you put the cream? I need cream in this damn coffee!" -- and the other pics, besides the one on the deck (just fine for a secondary pic) has partial head-shots. You want them clear, including the 1st one. The 1st one is fine for secondary... same with the one on the deck.. but I'd get clearer ones, showing your whole head & body.

Combine that with not-so-filled-out profile that just says you work a lot and take care of your dogs -- ehhh, goes in the negative direction, too.

Your profile says you're a smoker (smokes occasionally is the same as smoker). That in itself will eliminate a lot of potential dates. Otherwise, I don't see anything else that's a red flag.

Easy to answer.

Go and pick 10 profiles of females you would not date.

Then ask yourself what kind of picture could they post to change your mind.

When you come to the realization that there is nothing they could change then you will have your answer.

They ain't bad. Maybe take a few more. You got the dog one down. You're "supposed" to have one where you're smiling so women know you have all your teeth. Apparently that's a problem somewhere (not where I live).

Keep in mind a few things:

1. You're getting advice from the same six people who give advice on a forum that's about as active as a Syrian nightclub, and they pretty much all have mediocre pictures and will call your pictures mediocre/terrible no matter what they are.

2. Just about every picture looks like garbage on this dumpster fire of a site because it scales any perfectly good pic down to 140 x 60 pix or whatthefucever, and grains the shit out of it when compressing it. My suggestion: Put up a profile over at OkC too where it doesn't ass up pictures like it's still fukin' 1997.

if I'm just older and less attractive now lol


Well, OP, today you're one day older than you were yesterday. There's no stopping Time.
And 'being older' does not necessarily make you less attractive. Everyone else around you is getting 'older' as well.
It must be your sucky profile! hahaha (no I haven't read it---you said it)

Few men- if any- are.

OLD is just not what it used to be.
Lots of profiles on sites, but a much lower level of participation by women overall, compared to years ago, during the glory days.

They passed us by.

I never said that, come on man. 30-40 is a popular user age, so it's good for POF... but for any site, yes, your market will plummet as you age when you're looking for young gals.

Do you get 'meet me' notices or do women view your profile? If they do it could tend to suggest you're attractive enough to generate some interest. I looked at your profile. It is pretty empty. In my limited experience I've observed that women tend to put greater value on the written sections than men....so if you're getting views but not responses that may be the reason why.

OP, learn to be more confident. You will manifest what you believe.

Yeah, I wish that concept was literally true. "I believe I can have a 3-some with you two, I believe I can have a 3-some with you two...," then when told No over and over again by the two ladies, it becomes "No means Yes, No means Yes, No means Yes..." :)

Every woman has a price at the end of the day, whether it can be paid in money, time, status, or some other need is the operative. Some women are just more upfront about it than others.

shaler20, your profile is fine. Your pictures are fine, you look fine.

You're 5'9 and women are extremely shallow about height, so that will eliminate you from about 90% of women right off the bat. Nevermind that many of these same women are like 5'1 and 5'2 themselves which is very short to the point that 5'9 should be perfectly adequate for them, but women do not date with rational thinking. If they did these sites would die because most of these women would have a man already. The majority are holding out for men that are way out of their league, and when they get pumped and dumped (which usually happens with men out of their league) they will be here crying "where have all the good men gone!" when there are probably 50 of them sitting in their inbox unread because they don't meet the unrealistic Chad requirements, smh.

OP -

Yes, your pics suck.

YOU look GREAT!, BUT --


1. Main pic -- good pic but not for main pic. Choose a close up of your smiling face.

2. Scowling. Is that a selfie in your car? The backwards help not helping your case. Take a nice, smiling, close-up of you smiling against blank back-drop (mine is a selfie taken in front of a door). If you have good teeth give us big pearly-white smile in 1 close up. Camera at just above eye level, VERY slight tilt down toward you. Have on a decent solid color shirt or tee.

3. Nice body shot, but bad camera angles, not looking at camera, junk in the pic. Def wear that impressive outfit again. But nice pose, uncluttered back ground, look at us and SMILE.

4. Nice to show us that you are a dog lover. Not interested in dog's dental hygiene. Your Pic 1 with the dog is good enough.
