    Default Critique my POF Profile!

    This is my whole profile and it's all true, let me know what you think, if its too try-hard please let me know, I didn't write it with that intention!

    For starters, I'm not looking for someone to love me. I love myself plenty. I understand a relationship is supposed to enhance your life, not make or break it. I'm looking for someone to love. When I think about an ideal relationship, most of my thoughts veer towards what I'd like to provide for the other person. Things I'd cook, restaurants I'd take her out to, theme parks we'd go to, impromptu road trips we'd take, favors I'd like to pay. I really think the desire to provide for someone else is one of the major hallmarks of maturity, and it is one I look for in people I spend time with. And so by extension of that I guess I'm...looking for someone to love me? No one ever said this dating thing would make sense. Haha. Anyways, onward with my description!

    I'm a bit of a joker and I can be quite unpredictable! I like making people feel happy around me and I like talking to everyone provided they can make good conversation :P. I do a few things in my spare time that I love doing. If there's one thing I love doing it is being an activist, I have always been able to speak my mind and I see things in the world that are just cruel, wrong and immoral, I use my love of speaking my mind to stand up against these issues in front of crowds that can go into their thousands... its the rush I get from it that drives me on when I speak! I have a strong passion for football but I don't let it get in the way of other things in my life (that mean I'm not one of those nutters that beat people up over football but I do enjoy the banter), I have recently picked up an interest in free running and I have done some wrestling and cricket aswell.

    I think the one thing that makes me stand out from the crowd is the fact I'm always smiling and having an awesome time, no matter what the situation, I make the most of it! I'm quite confident in general, I like having fun all the time and working hard on things I want to accomplish. I hope to graduate university and go on to coaching in football and doing many other things. One thing I'm actually working on is a self help book that also explains my life story and where I have been, it allows me to express myself in such a way that I can document my life as it happens and what lessons I have learned from everything! I like acting as well, if the time comes that I somehow get picked out and I make it to the big screen than I guess my life would be elevated to a different level all together but I will always remember those that where always there for me!

    I have a very instrumental taste in music but I'm a sucker for brilliant lyrics. It's a varied music taste but it spreads across metal and rock genres. If you like good metal music regardless of what type than I will love you forever, as long as its not bland and too slow, fast is everything *reflection of personality hmmm*. Anyway apart from my love of listening to music I also play the Guitar and Drums, though I have not played in a while, I had a band for which I played rhythm Guitar for and occasionally drumming, a couple of songs we made I also did the lyrics for but it was a group effort but it was awesome all in all!

    I'm looking for an honest, independent and charismatic woman to be able to relax with and cuddle in bed.

    So if you've come this far and you think we would get along send me a message, I don't bite.. Actually that's not true

    By the way... did I mention I love cooking and baking

    Ideal first date:

    I'm NOT looking to date. First you have to prove we can get along as friends before taking things to that level.

    But if I was it would be a casual thing, like a small dinner, a trip to the town for a drink of coffee or a general walk. Nothing too serious or pressurising, I like to keep things fun and light! It gives us enough time and space to talk and to get to know each other a bit better which is something I like when I'm meeting new people!

    You're giving WAAAAAY too much information.
    There's no "mystery" with your profile to create intrigue & curiosity.... (which are the foundations of attraction).

    That's the exact type of profile I made when I first joined match & POF last Winter... and I received one email from a girl (who was a "3") & got back ZERO replies from all the girls I messaged.

    Soooo... I scrapped my profile & did some research.

    2 months later I posted the SAME pictures I used before, but my new profile was funny, silly, goofy, & left a lot of mystery about me, which made the girls want to know more.

    Your current profile is basically YOU trying to qualify yourself to the girls, rather than making them try qualifying themselves to you....which is what you want them to do.

    You need to be creative, & make your profile different than every other guy posting the same type of stuff.

    I shared my actual match profile in one of my older posts.
    I'll see if I can find it & link to it.




    ***EDIT***
    That was quick! I found it here. Just scroll down to the 4th post in that thread.

    You'll see what I mean by being "creative & different"... as well as not really saying anything about myself, in order to make them interested.

    & yes... the girls who responded to this profile have been VERY good to me.


    heehee!!

    I thought the exact same thing, too much qualification of myself! If I can get an example than that would be awesome!
