As the title suggests, tell me what's good and what's bad in my admittedly wordy profile. Also, working on getting pics ATM.

First create your own thread, it's bad manner to ask in anothers thread

For the OP you're gonna have problems meeting people and here's why ( My opinion)

When I was single I hung out with singles, once married I hung out with other married couples. Once we had a child other married couples with children

Why?

The same reason you have friends your age - Common interests. At our age you we have no common interests except maybe old cars. Ever use a phone with a cord attached? Remember when gas was 70 cents a gallon? Remember when the Doobies broke up or even know who I mean?

Not trying to be mean but we are too far apart to be friends hanging out by the pool or the bbq

Arg. I was wondering why everyone was getting on me about height. I didn't even notice that in the top part. Do'h. Again. thanks for all the advice.

I think the profile is vastly improved, but. . .

You still don't seem to know whether you're 6'3" or 6'4". How hard is it to stick with one of those? It's just sloppy on your part.

Kat suggested that you get rid of the Olive Garden reference. Unless they're paying you to get their corporate name out amongst the swinging community, you really should do that. So you've bussed tables and washed dishes there (you said you've done everything except manage), that's hardly a qualifier here.

If you're going for "I'm employed and responsible," then just say that. Let us all think you're a budding tech CEO if we want.

Well, I threw some terrible pictures up there for now. Hopefully I can get some better ones soon.

Yeah, I've been trying to find a thing to go to, but a lot of the clubs and stuff seem to be 21+, which is obviously a problem. So I guess it's mostly house parties or whatever for me. What's the best place to find these gathering? The event's subfourm? Or is there another place?

Hi Wie,

Try to get to a meet and greet...people are always very friendly and will gladly take some shots of you. There's so many in the Orlando area. One I saw was O.D.D. (Orlando, Deltona and Daytona) that had over 200 members. See when their next meeting will be.

You can take a shot of yourself without the camera showing -- I did this one.

Thanks for all the advice so far guys. Been checking this every day and trying to make tweaks as you point them out. And I've already had 3 people message me, so I guess it's working!

Now I just need to get some pics. Problem is, I don't really have many good ones. I don't really have the kind of friends who take pictures all the time, and I don't really wanna go with a mirror self-shoot, so what's a good way to go?

A photographer I am not.

Wiedefeldf, I have to agree with Shesmooth on the height thing. How tall you are is how tall you are. Be consistent (honest) in your stats and profile body, don't grow as one reads your profile, unless you want to raise the fibber flag. :(

And I agree with Starrynights22 on adding some pictures...PG is best for public viewing, stay away from the cock shots to set yourself apart from the thousands of other single-minded single males on here. Any faces or nudes can be put in private galleries for viewing by select members. You sound like a person of character, so it is only a reflex that I tell you to avoid the "conquest" shots so many HNGs seem to think others want to see.

Other points noticed: -You have an open-ended parenthetical statement following your unofficial saying.

- I'm guessing few others will care that you've worked at Olive Garden for 3 years unless they have a pasta fetish.

-If you are seeking a mature couple, be clear about it. Don't leave that as an afterthought sentence near the end of your profile. Incorporate it into the first section and possibly adjust your desired age range to suit -- saying you are seeking mature couples while showing you want 18 y/o (remember, you are 19) gives a mixed message.

You've got a good base going, review it, revise it, build on it. Keep it current, and don't forget to revise your tagline as you gain more experience. :)

Good luck, Mrs TF3

Hi Wie,

I really enjoyed the honesty of your profile and overall tone...but it could be shortened. Pics and some certs are important additions right now.

Under Description...Just start out with the basics, "White male,..." and definitely have your correct height. Try not to be so wishy washy in your sentences with phrases like "I guess," and "sort of" which sound on the immature side (however, I really feel that your profile overall is well written!). I would end the second paragraph after "If I want something, I go for it.)" The rest you should save for when you e-mail or meet the person.

Hopefully you can get to some meet and greets, which will help you obtain some certs. Full length pics (neck down, clothed) for your public photos are really important. After all, you're HWP and should show that off : ) If you choose to post face pics, it's nice to have both smiling and serious (but this really isn't necessary...you can save them to your private pics and only send a face pic with correspondence).

Best wishes, Wie : )
