Wow I have met a scammer....let me share the signs with you
Posted: 4/26/2013 7:07:33 AM
Scamwarners can help if you suspect a scammer.

They are normally men pretending to be women and use girls to do the phonecalls.

If they get your email address be ready for some serious spam.

They can work you as a group and boy I mean 24/7

However scam baiters can work them also and really put them through the hoops.

Seeking Profile Review Please
Posted: 4/26/2013 6:25:14 AM
Hi
The profile is not too bad at all, and easy to read. But it probably only catch a specific type of lady.

Maybe a few new photos as the half shirtless one is not the best.

Good Luck

Hi
Did you change the profile because it is nice and easy to read. Lose some of the interests as there is a lot. Now go get some pictures because those monkeys are running off with all the lovely ladies, who should be contacting you.

P.S I am packing my bags and off to Canada.

You have made a very grave mistake. You have a women in your pics. Now get a camera, a friend and get a few outside fresh pictures of yourself from around where you live.

Once we get the photo's right we can jig the profile.

Hi

You live in a beautiful country, Take a few outdoor pictures, natural ones. It peaks an interest from the ladies and put captions on them.

Now delete most stuff to do with games...

Ask a few friends in real life, what would they say about you at your funeral...You may get a few hints. lol

We will get there, we are not there yet, but we will get there.

Posted: 4/24/2013 9:07:31 AM
Guys, not all of them are girls. They are what is called yahoo boys, working out of internet cafes and building up a dossier of email addy's, phone numbers etc. If they need a girl to phone you, they will hire a girl or use there mother, wife or sister.

dating scams what are they
Posted: 5/23/2012 3:56:56 AM
It took me 6 weeks to read the whole saga of Anus Laptops from scambaiting.com. as recommended by a another poster here.

It was so funny, I recommend when listening to some of the Audio's, not to have hot tea/coffee in your hand.

However, I would say to any one who has received a request for money,..Drop the person.

Visit scamwarners also.

It is a good profile, but you are looking to date and nothing serious. I would change that.

You use up a few lines on having a laugh with mates yet your profile needs a catcy opener to portray this. Get witty with your ditty's...

I got as far as the third paragraph and found it difficult to read, so hence I skipped to the date bit.

What you need to do is break down the profile.

First paragraph should be a catchy introduction, a few lines.

Main body should consist of about 3 paragraphs, short and sweat.

Your ending should include what type of woman you would like to date. In your case, it would be someone who likes the outdoors etc.

A few things to put in the main body, Family, Job and places you like to visit. A general music taste and books or movies if you are in to them.

Oh, you need a better profile pic although all your pictures are great but you are hiding yourself in your main one.

Hi. Just rearrange the opening paragraph.
Hi my name is........Keep it.

I came from Norway....Good keep it

But rearrange about the rain and weather. You could say. I moved away from Norway to escape the awful weather, but it followed me here.

How does my profile look
Posted: 2/6/2012 2:06:42 AM
I am sorry, but it needs a bit of work in the grammar area. Also there is a basic area which would possibly see you having a very small fish pool and that is due to your drug taking.

As I live on the other side of the Atlantic and come from a different background, I will live this profile for other's to bite into.

How did mine come out?

It is a good profile just needs tweaking.

Firstly you have travelled the world. Mention your favourite place .

Secondly Omit the fact that you have not met someone, that's why we are all here.

Introduce yourself in your opening paragraph. Be catchy to get a lady's attention.

Best of Luck

Hi
Well firstly it is a little short and maybe a few more pictures. Tell us more about yourself and use a short paragraph style, one or two lines will be enough.

Just a few point's. You live in a very interesting place, use that to your advantage. What did you do as a child. Family and genealogy is also good as is something about work. Use everything to promote yourself and happy fishing.

profile review pleasee! comments appreciated
Posted: 2/4/2012 9:11:12 AM
Hi

I have about 2 min's before I head to Dublin, so I have to be quick. Your main profile picture is not the best. Ask your sister's to take a load of really nice photo's of you, dressed nice..then casual and upload them . Make sure that whatever you wear is with a good bra. Us busty ladies need to be measured constantly and wear appropriate bra's. It's a pain but worth it.

Next you need to look at your profile. It is interesting but long. Remember you need to capture that fella with a good catchy profile that is postive and fun to read. I bet you are good fun and have great friends so ask for their opinions also. I put in very short paragraphs (You can read mine) and although it tells the viewer alot about me, it does it in a subtle way.

Best of Luck

Hi. It is interesting in parts. What do you teach? The opening is catchy but lacks a bit of oomph.

I am not at my best for reviewing at the moment. I have bad man flu and chest infection. So I am going to bump this up for some of the other reviews to give a little input.

Agree with the above and above above. There is no flow to the profile. It does not project the real you. Think of a few things you would say to a lady the first time you meet.

You would always say Hello, I am ....

And work at it from there.

Profile Help
Posted: 2/4/2012 3:07:17 AM
Hi,
Your profile is OK but needs a bit of work. Your opening line needs to be deleted and replaced with something catchy.

You spent your early years in Pakistan. Develop that..That could be really interesting.

Your headline ..last try, needs to be replaced.

I would leave out your weekend work and chat about your main job. It sounds interesting.

It makes sense to me Ryan, as we know you, and you are trying to say it in a nice way and be gentle.

But the OP may not see that this is your Brand of Humour, However what Ryan may be trying to say is...We need to rough your profile up a bit. Is this the first profile we have roughed up while normally we are toning them down.

Hi. Overall it is a good profile but needs tweaking.

Your introduction...Hi...Get rid of anything to do with stopping by etc.

I really liked the part where you chatted about your mum. You should move that paragraph up a little as it is very important.

Delete this... I believe this is the part where I need to tell you all about myself. Grab your attention, have you start learning what a one of a kind man I am! However, I am not going to tell you too much. After all that is what a good conversation is for ;)

Keep this..I will say that I am a relatively easygoing and mild mannered kind of guy. I like to have fun. It makes the mundane tasks in life tolerable.

Most days you will find me in jeans and a t-shirt. Some may describe me as low maintenance. Do not let that fool you though, I do clean up well and can be as sexy as the next.

I grew up in small towns north of Milwaukee… Therefore, I am a small town guy. The hustle and bustle of the metropolitan city is not my first choice of places.

I lost my mother many years ago. Sadly, she has been gone from my life longer then I was able to enjoy her in it. Therefore, family is very important to me. I enjoy spending time with the family I have when I can. I look forward to one day having a family of my own. Making them a top priority and treasuring every moment!

When I said I was “one of a kind”, these are some of the reasons why… I cook, clean, do laundry, wash the dishes and all the other “fun” stuff involved in taking care of a home. Unbelievably I even SEW. Yes, I said it I sew.

I am sweet and romantic. I will open the door for you, hold your purse while shopping, carry in the groceries and give you a kiss just because. I can also be a silver tongue devil when the situation calls for it.


But move it around a bit, putting like paragraphs closer together.

For example, Start about your childhood, move on to your Mum, what you wear normally, next about that you can cook etc and then move on to the para about holding a door etc.

We are getting there. Now we need to soften it up a little. Bullet points seem severe where as short paragraphs are easier on the eye. We need to open up with a catchy line or paragraph that shows who you are.

Give me a few minutes to think of something.

first Paragraph, introduce yourself...Hi, my name is .......and I am a hard working business woman who likes nothing better than to potter around the garden in my down time or spend some time stargazing.

Hi
Nice to meet you. There is a lot in your profile, but it seem's very picky. I do not wish to be harsh, but I guess guy's will see it as off putting.

What your looking for my be very difficult to catch, but would you date a guy who was not religious or liked a glass of wine on Saturday's night's with his dinner.

I have only sent 2 email's to guy's on this site, one because he had a very funny profile and some great picture's and the other because of his brilliant profile picture. Other than that, I spend a good deal of time replying to all the email's I receive. Most women would be in a similar situation here.

Finally the picture of you in the red dress is terrific. It really suits you and you should wear red more especially in your photo's.

Ok..it is not bad, needs Tweaking.

You say.. So finding someone with the same goals and aspirations is a must.....What are your goals and aspirations? As I reach one goal, I change and reach for a new one. How can 2 people in a relationship have the same goal's. They may have similar career's in which they follow different goal's.

Take out the part about getting xxxxfaced at a bar. You could say that although you like a beer, one or two is enough and you would like to meet a lady with a similar idea.

You also say Family is important. Develop that. Chat about what you like to do together.
