Is there a red flag in my profile that I'm missing?
I mean, even when people will visit my profile, they don't
really seem to message me. I know a certain level of that is to be
expected, but now I worry that there is something about my profile
or whatever that is scaring them off. Maybe the profile is too
boring to keep anyone's interest? Is there something obvious that

not sure about your profile, but I would suggest different
pictures (or more pictures).
One or two additional pics of a closeup of your face so you can
be seen clearly.
I'd ditch at least one of the multi-people pics.
And make your main profile pic a better head shot that's
just a suggestion

Your guiltiest pleasure should really be Billy Joel.
Kidding aside, I think all those quotes hurt your profile.
Despite a bad first line, you seem to give a good sense of your
personality, which suddenly gets derailed by a bunch of quotes not
Procrastinating probably isn't a good thing to admit to, much
less put in your things I'm good at section. I realize you're
trying to be funny, but self-deprecating humor can backfire. People
don't get humor on the internet, at least when it doesn't involve
pictures of cats.

My three suggestions:
(1) Download some free photo editing software and fix the white
balance on #1, #5. Move #1 to the bottom - it's the least
useful photo. You look best (to a heterosexual male) in the
third photo - use it as your main but it might be tough to crop out
all but your face.
(2) Delete "Hum what to say?" - dive right in! Also, you
really evaded the question of "What I'm doing with my life" by
promptly talking about a new job. Move that statement up to
"self summary" and provide something more insightful and sweeping
about you LIFE. I think five sentences minimum belong
(3) The first thing people usually notice about me
BORING: Probably my eyes
BETTER: My eyes are frequently dart about, hoping to catch a
glimpse of the kitten that someone just reported as
You get the picture!
