Recently underwent the excruciating yet well meaning experience of having my ex-wife and her sisters vet this profile. Their conclusion?
"Lower your age, mention that you love to travel and make it sound more like you are looking for a life-partner...you'll get more dates that way"
Opted not to take their counsel as went that advice but did edit out a sentence or two about the general physical types that attract me. "Those make you sound like a jerk" said they.
"Hmm...but what about all the profiles that mention tall men only etc, etc"
"But when a man does the same?"
"He's a jerk."
These being very smart women....the discussion stopped there, the point ceded and heeded.
