Maybe I need to fire the guy who created my profile. I am not getting the desired results. In fact, most messages I send end up in the "unread/deleted" category. At this point, I am beyond trying to understand what I need to change.

Please do a review and give me your honest feedback. Here's what you are reviewing: Recent pics, truthful profile answers, and whatever else you see.

It could be:

-my looks
-my photos
-the order of my photos ( or the photos I have chosen)
-the profile content I wrote


I would appreciate any and all feedback.

Your interests list is too long. Travel, wanderlust, Bali, Ireland, is redundant. Just say either travel or wanderlust.
Do you flirt when you're with a date? As in flirting with other women? If you do that, then leave FLIRTING in there. If you don't do that, then take that out.
For most women, "wants to date but nothing serious" means you're a waste of time. They won't answer you. Yet you say you know how to commit. That's contradictory. If you're willing and able to commit, say you're looking for a relationship.

You have 3 truck photos, they violate the rules, you must be in every photo. One photo of you next to your truck should do it.
Too many unsmiling photos.
You need one head and shoulders smiling shot without sunglasses for your main.
Hope that helps.

I am thinking you might doubt my answer?

I am Irish and Jewish and I tan very easily.

Your age parameters are cringe worthy. Most women your own age will *next* based on them alone.

The only small advice I could give is not to use the bird pic as the lead. It is kind of hard to see YOU in the thumbnail.

And, personally, I love when a guy smiles with his whole face. Teeth, eye wrinkles. The whole dirty truth.
It may just be me, but when I see a whole bunch of closed lipped smiles, I just think, "this guy doesn't want to laugh out loud at life with me". :D
That's just me, though.

But, I would consider changing the lead pic.

I have changed that. That was not my preference so I am not sure how it saved. And I am curious as to why you looked at that ( good catch, btw). Is that a thing you always look at? And why?

I have made some changes based on your recommendations. Thoughts?

I have made some changes. Thoughts? Or do you think one of my other pics should be the main?

I like the pic changes! Good choices! It shows you in a variety of settings vs just the truck. Variety of smiles. :D

Again, it's just a thing for me about the smiling with teeth. It just makes a guy seem more approach-able, if you will.

While I didn't see the original profile, I do like this one. My only suggestion is to get rid of the picture of you in bed because there's a uck factor. Good luck!

You are tall, not bad looking and educated you should be having success in real life. Nothing wrong with your profile. You dont look Jewish or Irish but more of the African origins. It is that few genuine women are here and those that have it going on are too busy in real life. That you paid for an upgrade is a waste of money from what I hear. Dont waste your money.

When I first went on pof I became an upgraded user because I was really curious what advantages there were. I did really like being able to see who last viewed you and when.
