Hi OP, you're pretty good-looking. I like your profile too, it showcases your personality. I would remove the following:

"So if you like the sound of me lets get chatting, feel free to message me, it's 2018 :)

P.s Seriously girls, lay off the phone filters, bunny ear, dog nose, and that much blur you look plastic really are not what guys want! They want to see your face for what it is. If I turned up to a date and you didnt have bunny ears I'd be annoyed lol"

People reading your profile are adult women, don't tell them what to do. If not your cup of tea - keep it moving.

I viewed your profile, and the only thing that stuck out to me was something that I look at in every profile. Your longest relationship was only 4 years? Really? Course, mine was 20 but who's counting. Everything else was ok, not a "wow". But your photo's were fine. I see allot of profile's, and after awhile they all look about the same. Men my age all seem to be on some heavy drug that makes them more active than the normal. I find that alittle bizzare. Anyhow, good luck.

^^^Didn't stand out to me. Mine was 4 as well, and I'm the same age as OP - and we're both over 20 years younger than you. You had a long relationship, not everyone did, and? I could also judge you because you have "some college" and I have a degree which I went back to school and earned as an adult. If you don't know the individual you can't make judgments of them based on the length of their relationships, let's not be ridiculous. And, OP is probably active because he has a manual job and is in good shape as opposed to couch potatoes on drugs.

Hi, thanks for the response Twoish.......I'm sorry I could only hold down a 4 year relationship, If I could go back in time and tell the last 3 girls I've dated to not cheat on me then maybe they may of lasted longer! Congrats on yours being 20 years, you obviously found someone you can trust. I am veryy active as my job is manual, I go to the gym several times a week yes, I do mostly cardio with a few weights thrown in, I can send you my workout if you like, but I've never done drugs in my life, I barely even drink more than a handful of times a year, a good diet and and basic excercise can keep you trim and in shape even at my age. Thanks for your opinions though, but as mahwahgirl339114 stated you don't know my back story of my life, and i'm hardly going to publish such personal stuff on here am I? I wanted an opinion on my profile not to feel like someone is berating of my life. And mahwahgirl339114 Thanks you're so kind :)

Great profile, doll. The pictures are varied and I like that you added captions. One thing: Contractions while typing up the captions don't take. Have a look and instead of an apostrophe you'll see a bit of gobblygook.

Great About Me. Lots of information, a bit of humour, and nothing negative. Good job!

I actually had to go back and see where you were from. The usual profiles that I've seen from your neck of the woods don't come close to what you've achieved with yours. Once again, good job!

Reviewers should remember that we review the profile content, not the reviewee's looks or lifestyle. (Both of which you have in spades, doll, no worries!)

Your profile seems fine. Don't get me started about the "longest relationship". Best thing about that field is it weeds out people who judge based on the value. Players who have had nothing but one night stands can put 10+ years to get a girl to bed, then he never calls her again. Comments in profile reviews were actually a lot ruder years ago, when there were regular forumite losers who ganged up on the people who asked for reviews.

Just about every paragraph and some additional sentences begin with "I". Could reword with less of an "I" focus.

People who look young for their age don't need to write that they do. I've seen that claim in so many women's profiles, it's a cliché. The first few sentences in your about me are the most important and they show up in some searches. When I do searches that show opening text and I see wording that's in a zillion other profiles, I'm less likely to view the profile. Could just say you're young at heart, letting your photos show you look young. The opening "Hi" isn't particularly useful.

The photo caption saying the site deleted the picture the first time you tried to upload isn't particularly useful. You could edit that caption, either having no text or say the month and year you took the photo. Especially for people who look young for their age, captions with the month and year could make viewers more confident your photos are indeed recent.

"Crappy TV programs" is a hilarious thing you put for an interest. "Nerdy and geeky stuff" is funny too. Ideally the girls find those amusing.

Good luck!

Thanks Cloud_Interpreter and MeramecRiverRat, this is more what I was looking for, some helpful advice :) I didn't even notice the picture caption error, very odd but I've sorted it and reduced some of the "I" sentences, I see where you are coming from with that.

Nice profile! I like the bit of humor describing your baldie haircut, I'll try to work that into my profile.

"Younger than 45." You're 42 and not exactly young yourself.

OP, since you've never had kids and want them, I don't think your under 45 age preference is an issue. I think the sentence about having your own teeth and hair is an overused cliché, and it's a bit of a turn-off.

You have pictures of yourself smiling, so I think women can make that determination from those. Mentioning your hair loss is not cute; it makes you sound insecure about it.

Thanks guys, the hair thing is genuine and Im not in the slightest bit insecure, I am what I am and I can't change that :) As for the age thing, as Whiterose stated I do want kids so looking for someone younger would make sense right? Also I cant help who Im attracted to really but I get your point, thanks for reminding me of my age, I forgot there for a second.... ;)

Hi,

Pics are good apart from pic 3. Recommend removing but good mix of the rest.

Id change the title there is defo a market for that especially with the younger ladies but still can be worded better. May get away with if was not for the interests.

crappy tv
hardly travelled etc

most people want fun and adventure. However you are selling a lifetime of indoor trash tv and gaming if women pick you. Over-all good profile, pics and effort all the same.

Thanks Indiallias, a couple of good points, Ive changed it to "Id like to travel to new places" I see what you mean as it sounds better, got rid of the picture and looking for a couple of new ones, outdoors too :)

Hi what you have is good and without trying to change your persona too much have brushed up a little what you have below to be more flowing. I am not a pro but hope it helps.

I'm a down to earth, honest, fun loving guy who's young at heart. I'm not the party animal I used to be but that doesn't mean I do not like to go out and have a few drinks with friends, for meals out, to events etc. A loving partner to join me and make my life complete will be amazing also.

I'm always up for learning new things in life, I've tried snowboarding, learning electrics and plumbing, even starting to try archery soon also. I'd like to travel and view different parts of the world and it would be nice to do it with someone special.

In the week I work and like to spend my free time going to gigs and listening to music, watching films, socialising with friends. Playing on the computer here and there but also going to the gym several times a week to stay healthy and relax. I'm a pretty good at drawing and arty type things and very house proud & trained & am able to look after myself, even enjoy cleaning to pass the time.

I do like to get my geek on at times. Be it films, comics and games. Cause of this I'm quite passionate at times, always excited when the new Marvel films come out etc

My home is shared with a cat that keeps me company. I drive and have my own car, my own hair....oh wait, not so much hair. It was shaved off a few years back for charity and so I decided to keep the smooth look.

I am serious about meeting someone for a relationship and eventually settle down. If we connect perhaps could be you.
Happy fishing :)
