Looking to be able to revamp my profile. I am trying to see what would make my profile work better for me. I do seem to get some views but very few messages. The only reason I specifiaclly mention using fertility treatments is o that guys know that they will not have to worry about drama with another guy.

Is the wording correct regarding fertility treatments? Do you mean you used a sperm bank to conceive a baby? Its not quite the same thing. Either way, you should save such personal info for when you meet someone in person and the subject of the childs father comes up.

A few quick suggestions if you're still looking...

- photos with big smiles are important.
- full length casual photos are important.
- no obvious selfies.
- outdoor shots with just you are good.

Do mention something you love about your work - guys want to know you're not simply looking for a wallet.
You mention you have a son- a viewer will want to know how old and if there is shared custody. (You can simply say you have 1 son, age whatever and you have full custody) If you are open to meeting someone with a child(ren) at home too, say so.

Is there a particular character or personality type you are hoping to meet? If yes, mention it. If you are open to men of all ethnicities, mention it. If not, don't. There is also no reason you can't initiate messages to men YOU find interesting, too. Good luck!

My comment is more about personal appearance. Doing things men like to do, that's attractive. Being low maintenance, that can be seen as attractive. That doesn't mean a guy will necessarily overlook a woman not being feminine in their attire. You can still dress down and be sexy. Wear more feminine clothes. Men show interest based on looks to start with. No getting around that.

You only have 2 pics. Nobody is going to take you seriously with only 2 pics. You need at least 3 more pics. You can do it!

- I agree....... a makeover or simply dressing up in a dress for some pics could help.... men like an attractive woman and I don't think your pictures are doing you justice.

She is presenting an image of who she truly is. I respect that, and so will her match. Who wants a phony?
Maybe a smile and something about your work in the medical field. You must have many virtues.
Good luck.
