I would start with improving your photos.
#1 is OK, but I can tell it's a selfie. Better to have either someone take a photo or use a tripod and a timer.
#2 is awful. I know it's meant in fun, but no, delete it.
#3 is good, I like the smile. Next time do it without sunglasses.
#4 No, no, no. DELETE. No photos with women, even if you explain. The photo captions are regrettably tiny.
# 5 NO, friends or family, it LOOKS like your family. DELETE.
#6 eh, it's OK
#7 good
You need a full body shot, you will have to ask someone to take it, not possible as a selfie.

i get no replies at all.


A common problem on POF and most dating sites at the present time.


so im just not sure what im doing wrong


It is in the realm of possibility that you are not doing anything wrong, it's the other people who are doing something wrong.


So im starting to think its either my profile or im past my best before date


Or

Women overall are just not participating as fully in the online dating process as they used to back in the glory days of online dating.

Right now, is the toughest climate I have ever seen for online dating.

Except for guys who are 6 feet tall, look like a male model, and drive a $1.4 million Ferrari LaFerrari.

Best of luck.

This is a very accurate answer. I also think that the Tinder model seems to be what most women prefer to old school POF profiles. I am also not getting good results. While I am seeking feedback to address what I thought would be errors on my part, I am asking myself why I paid for an upgrade when most of what I see are scammers and bots.

^^ Don't forget they take a recurring payment when it runs out so you might want to check your auto renewal setting in Paypal if that's what you used to pay.

I've come to the conclusion the bots aren't an external entity and in fact are part of this websites game plan.

Don't give up. You just have to keep putting yourself out there.

Don't take it personal. If they look at your pics and your profile and pass, then let them.

Keep trying!
Good luck!!

Are you trying offline too, Chris?

It's harder to just blank you if you ask women out in person. You might not like the reply you get, but you'll have respect for them ;)

Seriously well since you think you can give it lets see...

It wasn't a dig at you. Boo said about prison. I made a joke about bad boys as in they get all the girls, apparently. Isn't that what gets thrown around, hence persona.. I'm only 5 years older than you and have had grey hair a lot of years since my twenties roll:

Realy spectra your trying to say "He'd probably have better luck with the bad boy persona" wasnt a dig lol

It wasn't meant like that but I really don't care fella.

Want advice. Don't look like you need a wash mate. Their you got some good advice because you do!

I couldn't care less what others think of what I wrote. It wasn't intended as you think but seriously find a bar of soap.

Spectra's comment was clearly directed towards me as he quoted what I posted.
Calm down....jaysus.
No replies...I don't think it's your profile.
Perhaps it's over reacting to trifles or getting angry for no reason.
Talk about being a butt.

^^^Bingo.
OP his off the road humorous comment was actually funny because it is like an inside joke to those that are on POF forums. It wasn't directed at you. There is a recurring theme that being a bad boy is fruitful with online dating. TBH based on my own experience as being 2/3 of a bad Apple I do say it is a bit spot on.

That being said, when you make a post(op) you do actually open yourself to help, criticisms etc. You become in the spotlight since you are inviting people to give opinions about yourself. Insulting Spectra , in the old days , would get POF to ban you because he isn't an OP, which means he is immune from jokes,comments,etc from pissed of OP's. Just a heads up.

That being said, Spectra perhaps my generic message I was going to give Hawking's would work for him?

^^ It was just a flippant thoughtless comment by me. What I will do is this.

I will apologise if I caused any initial hurt or pain. It is the last thing I want to do if someone is struggling on here. I'm more than happy to leave it at that.

I'm not sure on that. I love that message though. Its spot on. Sums up a lot of this place.

Spectra i apreceate that

But boo it wasnt a comment directed at you and that was obvious.

And joe i get what your saying, but if somthing is an in joke its probably not best to post it on new posts, as it will just be seen as a dig and offensive.

I think theres enough blame on both sides so i allso apoligise spectra. I dont feel i was wrong to react the way i did, but i dont see the point in holding a grudge if its a missunderstanding over a stupid in joke. Maybe make sure somone is in on the joke first.

personally im gonna stick to meeting women in the real world. Its not like i need this i thought it would have been fun. this online lark is just rubbish, its all bots, working girls touting for work, and very few genuine people. Its just sad how its comming to this swipe left or right bullshit.

I wish you all luck but this online crap isnt for me.

The pic with the green hoodie with you smiling w/sunglasses
is your good picture.
What you want is your smile (genuine) and lose
the sunglasses. But for now, the smile does more for
you than the no-sunglasses pics do.
The outdoors setting works in this photo.

The smile is what's going to create contacts for you.
It's hard to get good photos taken; you have to solve this,
though -- there's just no getting around it.
It's visual media.

Wild guess: take a bus trip somewhere with a camera
that you don't care too much about, and ask strangers to
take your picture. Keep doing it all day long on a sunny
day and go to visually interesting places.
You might eventually loosen up enough to get a really
good facial expression, showing your smile.
If you can't do any of that, might try a cell phone
that takes good quality motion images (videos) and pick
a good still frame from a selfie-film ;)
Your facial expression will change probably at least
once a second in many instances, so there are more
flattering facial expressions within that one second,
than any given one (on average).
Get several people to look at your still photo
choices, and be sure to include a few you don't
like much (your bias may be off).
When it's right, most people will pick the same
still photo .. that's your lead photo (but remember it
has to be a smile showing most of your front upper
teeth) (sorry to be so clinical, but it's important).

I think the offence was caused by you talking about him in the third person (as if he wasn't there), particularly as you addressed it to someone you seem already familiar with. The added meme of someone laughing hysterically made it appear you was laughing at him, not with him.
