i would be very greatful if somebody dont care if your male or female would please look at my profile and tell me what im puttin wrong if anything I personaly cant see anything wrong with it, then again they do say you can look at your own profile a million times and not see anything wrong but as soon as somebody say's well i would change that oh and put this it jumps out at you...yes i get lots of people looking but nobody messaging and those that i do message ok they read my message and look at my profile but thats about it :(. Dont want to sound like the wow is me type of guy but it dose get you down when you sit here for over an hour trying to write a message that is fun and catch and will make them want to reply, even more disheartening when you message somebody and they dont even look at your profile and just delete your message...anyway im starting to drone so bye for now

Hi,

Firstly I would say drop the line about must not be undecided about children, it's hardly a nice friendly warm welcome, and that conversation could be had a couple of messaged down the line.

As for the rest I have altered all (or as many as I could see) spelling and grammar mistakes, as well as cutting it up in to paragraphs feel free to copy and paste it.






My intent is to start a family, settle down and share the lots and lots of love I have within me.

People I know would say that I have a great heart, warm and lovable, sensitive, a joy to be around, sensitive and caring, kind and generous. One of my best features is am a fantastic listener, even if I do not have the answer, I will still listen, its not the helping that matters its the being there to listen.

I am going through some health Issues at the moment and I am due to go into Hospital for a major heart operation very soon. I was born with a congenital heart defect know as Tetralogy of Fallot (TOF) I am not looking forward to spending five to six hour in the operating room i can tell you that for nothing. That does not mean I am seeking a nursemaid, I've managed with it all my life and will continue to do so, just wanted to be honest and upfront with people.

I am a former online Deejay, as online DJ my music tasted are far and wide ranging from Motown, to R&B, Pop, Rock and Soul, some of the group and or singers I enjoy listening to are. The Drifters, The Temptations, Boyz II Men, Shinedown, Metallica, Lordi, Elvis, Within Temptaion, Daughtry, Alan Jackson, Toby Keith, Brad Paisley, Luke Bryan, Trace Adkins, Fleetwood Mac, Dire Straits, Robin Thicke, Will Smith, Pitbull, Annie Lennox, Roxette and so so many more :)

When I am not listen to music, I enjoy lots of different T.V shows, like N.C.I.S, N.C.I.S LA, Person Of Intrested, Almost Human, Sleepy Hollow, Lost Girl, WWE, TNA, Intellegents, Hawaii Five O, along with a few others. Most of the time you can find glued to my PC, properly playing Star Trek online, sorry ladies am a Trekie and Star Wars Fan, well almost anything Si-fi.

I do like going out for meals, the pictures or even just for a walk something I do not do enough of (nobody to walk with me) like Museums and Culture, would love to do some traveling, just got back from Amsterdam. Before anybody asks there is a whole lot more to see than the Red Light District, not all us males have one track minds. What was I talking about... oh yes :P If you never been and your in Amsterdam do yourself a favor and pay a visit to the Amsterdam Dungeon, You will love it :) i am currently losing weight with Slimming World, so far dropped a Stone and a Half.
Want to know more, then feel free to Ask :D

You have a lot of mistakes. Example " when I not listen to music" ???
Lose the photo of you next to a bed
in some pictures you look bigger than average - some women search by body type
Your Header.. not good.
Not ambitious doesn't make women jump for Joy " be still my heart a lazy Man!"
Disabled is not a profession
Doubt many women wanna visit a dungeon
It is a beautiful city - I'd remove the comment about the red light district. Speak instead about the museum ( Night Watch) stuff like that.

Hey Simon,

I'm not great at this either, however I do know that grammar and spelling are a huge thing for women.

Go back over your profile and read it out loud to yourself.

Things like "I am a former online Deejay, as online DJ my music tasted are far and wide" Should read more like "I'm a former online DJ, and have a music taste that ranges far and wide"

Photo's for women are a huge thing, and you should keep them as up to date as possible, the latest you have with hair is very unflattering, with the glasses you have on looking like they have been knocked.

You also want to get a variety of places. Amsterdam is a great location but 90% of them on the same day? (You're wearing the same clothes).

My advice would be to go back to your profile and rewrite it, shorten it down and get a variety of pictures.

Good luck Simon, you'll get there in the end.

A few quick thoughts...

The main photo you have now looking down onto you gives an odd angle that makes you appear exceptionally huge. Delete that photo and add another with a big laugh/smile, shoulders up, not from any odd angles.

In your Interests field, it's probably fine to just put Star Wars/Star Trek and not all the sub-variables. It's already borderline having both of those in there, along with the WoW reference. Can you trim a few more of the Interests?

The first line can go - your intent already shows that.

The last paragraph can also be removed. Replace with a short, light description of the type of person you'd like to meet. Mention personality traits you find attractive, and if you are open to someone with kids or of all backgrounds, mention it. If you're not, don't.

I am not quiet following what you mean, I got in my Interests field two star trek and two star wars, where one is the tv series Star Trek and one is the game Star trek online, with the star wars ones being the films and the Star Wars The Old Republic being the game. as for the Wow reference standing for World of Warcraft a pc game i play on and of.

and your also saying I should remove My intent is to start a family, settle down and share the lots and lots of love I have within me. along with the last paragraph Replacing with a short, light description of the type of person you'd like to meet.

Hi Simon
Is the Main photo an older one? You look much diff in the Amsterdam ones
k, you say you are average, yet you say in the text you are trying to loss weigh. I would put few pounds over instead of average
The Interests - idk, for me too man/boy
If you used to DJ what do you do now?
Instead of talking about marriage and family off the bat why not speak about what it is like to date you?
You go on far too much about that trip. Did you get to see The Night Watch?

These are your Interests, and I've bolded the ones that give the impression you may be 13 instead of 38:

Cinema
Eating Out
Internet
Watching tv

Muesums
Traveling
80s Cartoons
Marvel
DC universe
Disney
Animated films
World of Warcraft
Star Trek
Star trek online
Star Wars
Star Wars The Old Republic
PC games

American tv shows
Music
Swimming
Theatre
Meeting new people
American Football
Socialising
Films

The repetition and obsession gives me the impression there is something else going on with you. A mature woman looking for a relationship will want to see someone who has well-rounded interests and activities, which is why a preponderance of comic/sci-fi related items can be a detriment here.

Instead of just 'music', mention a couple of your favourite bands/artists. No more than 2. You have Cinema, Film and Theatre. Again, repetition. Do you mean live theatre? You only need one of the others. "Meeting new people" and "Socialising" can go as these are to be expected. "Watching TV" and "American TV shows" don't both need to be there. Actually, watching tv shouldn't be an Interest, it's like taking a shower or making lunch. Everyone does it. However, "American TV shows" may be a conversation starter with someone who also has this same interest.

You mention Traveling as an interest. Do expand a bit on that in your profile. Where is the most beautiful place you've seen? Where is one place you still want to go? Your viewer wants to imagine pictures when she's reading your profile.

(Sorry, the system won't let me add a comment to my previous post)

Do shorten the bolded list to two ONLY of you absolute favourites. And yes, you are correct in understanding what I was saying about the last paragraph.

Your body type doesn't quite appear to be "average" - "a few extra pounds" would be more accurate, and the bicycle pic drives that impression home.

Yeah, that main picture doesn't look anything like any of the other pics, especially because of the shaved head. I'd stick with how you appear now ... don't lead with how you appeared some time in the past.

A second Even Third option need on my profile please
Posted: 3/10/2019 7:49:31 PM
Hi Forum People :) since I last asked for people option on my profile way back in 2015 nothing has change, still single and not getting any or very little message. I've even try gasp upgrading, yes I payed as so called you are meant to get 3x as many messages. ( taps my inbox, mine must be broken). since my last profile review I have try short to very long profile's. well I have rewrote it short and am hopping and eye catching. all though I did leave my Headline as: Warm Hearted Male seeks similar Female. well I look at it a few time and a few tips about making it stand out and changed it tonight, maybe that will help a little who knows. Anyway here is my profile

https://www.pof.com/viewprofile.aspx?profile_id=6858132

thank you in advance

Posted: 3/10/2019 8:51:11 PM
It's fairly positive in tone, so that's good.

Your photos are not the best. You need a closer shot, head and shoulders, smiling, no sunglasses. No large graphics on your shirt, it's distracting. Your second photo is an obvious selfie, don't do that. Have your friends take some photos while you're out having fun.

Take out "eating out" as an interest. You're already a Few Extra Pounds, saying you like to eat out makes it seem like you'll be gaining weight. I know, not fair, but you don't want to give a woman a reason to click next.

Your profile reviews in 2015 emphasized proper sentence structure and punctuation, but you still need work on that.
