Hi!

I have a profile since a few months, but didn't have that much luck with it until now. I would appreciate advice on what to improve. Concerning the photos: I have very few photos of myself, as I don't own a camera and use my mobile a lot less frequently for making photos than some other people do. If you think the photos especially need improvement, I might try and contact a few friends to ask them wether they have better ones.

Thanks in advance,

Benedict

You come across as an intelligent, friendly, genuinely nice guy. If you lived in my area, I'd probably message you just to be friends.

Maybe you're a bit TOO nice, or TOO open? A lot of women get off on mysterious bad-boys--perhaps you should develop a slight edge?

Here are a few other changes I'd make:

  • Lift your target age a couple of years--it'll make you seem more selective and refined.
  • Replace "casual sex" with "short-term dating"--this could definitely be scaring some women off.
  • Skip details such as being "hotheaded," and focus instead on the positive--positive it what sells belles.
  • Talk about what you do for FUN--right now your profile is devoid of fun, so there really isn't much incentive for anyone to talk to you.

To elaborate further upon the last point: You're a nice guy; so what? Why would anyone actually want to know you? What do you stand to contribute to someone's life? How do you stand to improve their existence, should they let you in? Answer these questions well, and you'll do well.

 

Best of luck,

Zach

Thanks, that was very helpful. I've tried implementing some of your advice, I'll try and see wether it comes across more interestingly.
