Notice: Forums will be shutdown by June 2019

To focus on better serving our members, we've decided to shut down the POF forums.

Thank you!

Well, I did write "I am a poet," in my profile. Are you saying I should expand on that? I also feel like girls who enjoy gaming might be interested to know that I enjoy doing the same.

I've tried writing paragraphs in the past, but I've read that putting too much information will cause people to lose interest. I could definitely write more if you feel that I should.

Thank you for your input, Ainen. You're right; sometimes we make assumptions without knowing the entire story. A mere snapshot can, in no way, allow you to get an understanding of the entire panoramic view.

I'll work on putting some of your advice into play as well. Thanks!

Thanks for the help. I do appreciate it.

I often find difficulty in leaving out my sarcasm when writing profiles. Trying to show that I have a playful sense of humor, while at the same time attempting to show that I'm genuine is something I've always struggled with.

My apologies for seemingly offending you by coming off arrogant. Not my intention. I also find it difficult to fake the confidence we all find so attractive in the people we are looking to share our lives with.

No excuse for leaving the apostrophe out of I've in the profile, other than I wrote the profile on my phone. Much easier to pick up on mistakes now that I'm looking at a bigger screen.

Since I primarily write poetry, I do tend to get into ruts of repetitiveness - such as beginning each sentence with I. Writing without a rhythm in my mind takes work at times, especially in casual writing.

I'm adjusting a few things right now. Thanks again everyone!

Just needing some constructive criticism in regards to my profile. I'm getting back into the online dating pool again and I'd like some honest opinions on what I need to improve on. Any help is much appreciated!
