Lately I have been having a hard time meeting quality women on POF.
I think due to the amount of options girls have in a big city such as the Scottsdale/Phoenix area, a lot have been very flaky on meeting up. I like to transition from private message to text to meetup pretty quickly, i'm not big on dragging on emails for 3-4 weeks, meeting up and finding out the girl is not at all what I thought she was.
For first meetups I usually do something low key, such as coffee or a beer somewhere.
I re-wrote my profile a few days ago and am trying a different approach. My goal with the re-written profile is to come across as choosy and help weed out girls that aren't serious about actually meeting up.
My older profile was very generic and boring. Through browsing women's profiles I've noticed that most girls list a set of "credentials" you need to meet for them to want to write you back (even heavier set girls have some pretty inflated credentials). I'm wondering if having some "credentials" of my own would work?
Since re-writing the profile, I've messaged about 5 girls without response. Before messaging any more and burning out some options, I'm wondering if I should tone it down a bit?
I know for sure that the profile picture is the main determining factor in a woman writing back. Most messages I sent get clicked on and the girls do check out my profile. I probably have a 1/5 email to response ratio with my old profile (very generic, kinda boring).
I'm wondering if the pics are the dealbreaker or the profile itself. I'd be curious to know how much weight does the content of the profile hold versus how attractive a girl finds you based on your pics.
Comments and advice would be greatly appreciated.
My POF ID is Ridah28 in the search, I'd post a link but I can't since haven't posted enough yet.
Thanks in advance, Kevin
