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 I've missed?

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 clear.

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 from you.

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. 

And speaking of that, I'd make your photo with the cats your main photo. It's a bit blurry, but they are cute and you look good in it

i think get rid of first photo i personally  think it the worst one and maybe a few less quotes they take up more room then your about me part does

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 here.


(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 missing. 


You get the picture!
