    Help with POF profile

    http://www.plentyoffish.com/viewprof...le_id=21132941

    what do you think? Ive only just joined. When you do a search for men in my age range, mine seems to stand out because it doesnt have a title about "seeking a lovely girl" etc and when you read the first couple of lines of my description which are visible in the search, i think its pretty funny. The only other guy that caught my eye had a description that started "Im socially akward and hate trying new things." It immediatley made me stop on his and laugh.

    Its short and funny - perhaps you need to add a *little* touch of reality in there...

    "when you read the first couple of lines of my description which are visible in the search" Inever noticed that on POF - though to be honest I rarely use it as there seem very very few people use it here in Switzerland

    yeah i thought about adding some reality but i wasnt really sure how to combine the 2. When i did a search for guys, it comes up with the picture and "title" and then like the first sentence of their description, so having a good opening line could be pretty important i feel. I sent out about 8 messages trying various openers and only one has been read so far and she didnt reply. Thats a little annoying as shes like a 6 maybe 7 on the scale and my opener was pretty perfect i thought, she said somethign about her dogs and how if you were a dog lover thats perfect so i sent her this message:

    Title: "woof"

    "What kind of dogs do you have?? I have a spaniel and a labrador so if you have something crazy like a shihtzu then this is never gonna work!"

    Im just amazed that didnt get a reply!

    I read some stuff by a guy who goes by the name Christophe, he says profiles should be structered as:

    Humour,
    Confidence,
    Humour

    So I`d keep what you have to start with then, add a paragraph of qualifications, and finish it off with something light hearted and funny. That`s pretty much what I do these days, and my results are getting much better.
