    How do I "sound" in my profile?

    I'm wondering if I'm coming across as too much of a smart ass or too sarcastic. This is actually pretty toned down of me as I can be very sarcastic in writing. Anyway, I'm getting about 1 response to every 20 or so messages that I send out (no exageration) and I'm wondering if it's to do w/what I've written.
    OKC

    My Self Summary:
    I'm a guy who likes to lift, throw and carry heavy things, cook and experiment in the kitchen, learn and teach, observe things from afar, examine things from up close, watch films and documentaries, imitate accents, spend quality time with friends and family and a slew of other stuff that isn't coming to mind right now.

    What Im Doing w/mY Life:

    I'm a self-employed trainer and strength/conditioning coach in San Francisco. I share a co-op facility with a few of my fellow trainers. By my 35th birthday I hope to have my own gym/studio. I also run a fitness / paleo-recipe blog. I LOVE what I do for a living and am thankful for everything and everyone that made it possible for me to have this as a career.

    But if for some reason I was told that I couldn't be a trainer/coach anymore I would set my sights on becoming an SNL cast member because I'd totally kick ass at sketch comedy!

    I知 really good at
    Modesty.
    The first things people usually notice about me
    How awesomely modest I am.
    Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
    books:
    Orwell, Poe, Cleary, Haley, Blume.

    Movies:
    Snatch, Fear and Loathing, Raising Arizona, Amelie, Run Lola Run, Three Amigos, Office Space, Airplane, Total Recall, T2, Braveheart, Being John Malkovich, Saw 1, 2, and 3 (it just became a total clusterfuck after that) Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, Tim Burton, zombie and vampire flicks.

    Shows:
    Dexter, The Walking Dead, Family Guy, Mythbusters, History Channel, Discovery

    Music:
    Pantera, Depeche Mode, Nirvana, Sade, Madonna, Mos Def, 2Pac, House of Pain, Skid Row, EPMD, Public Enemy, Rammstein.

    Food:
    I'm a sucker for a good burrito and can get a bit irked if I'm served one with a knife and fork since the easiest and most efficient way to eat one is when it's wrapped in foil.

    The six things I could never do without
    My own place with a full kitchen.
    Music and the arts.
    Netflix.
    Friends/family.
    Barbells, bumperplates and squat racks.
    I spend a lot of time thinking about
    Those little salt and and pepper condiment packets. You know, the double barrel kind. Why is it that when you open up the salt, there's enough in there to give you a heart attack but the pepper packets are barely even 1/4 full?

    The most private thing I知 willing to admit
    I sometimes wear Chuck Taylors w/a suit but I pull it off well.
    My kitchen is not 100% clean 100% of the time (because I actually use it.)

    You should message me if
    You are of sound mind and body.
    You don't have the word "transplant" anywhere in your profile unless it's in reference to a medical procedure.
    Tall girls are hot as well. If I can lift you over my head, who cares if you're taller than me, right?

    END OF PROFILE////the last line is because I'm 5'8" and I know that some tall girls who don't mind being w/a short guy sometimes think the short guys won't want to be w/them. So that's why I kinda clarified it.

    I'll post my POF one later.

    I'd add a little more c/f and more mysterious.

    EXAMPLE:
    I'm good at:
    Modesty
    Sporting some sexy rippin abs
    Not flexing those abs in bathroom mirrors :P


    Instead of giving your entire employment situation be more mysterious:
    EXAMPLE:
    Can you believe I make a living off my body? Haha! No! Get your mind out of the gutter (and off my abs)! :P


    I'm assuming since you mentioned trainer you do have abs.
    I make the good girls bad, and bad girls worse;
    nice guys are last 'cause I知 always first.
    I知 a freak show sucker for how it feels;
    turn the girl next door into hell on heels.
    I知 red-white-blue tattooed and just don稚 care;
    I知 the all American nightmare.

    No abs. I've actually got a belly because I was trying to get my squats and deadlifts up so I was eating like a mofo. Gained muscled along w/fat as expected. Now I'm going to try and lose the belly while maintaining my strength.t'll actually be a few months before I'm in shape enough to use something similar to what you suggested. But I'm more performance oriented so I don't think I'll ever have abs because I'd have to lose too much strength to do it. I'm not really a typical globo-gym personal trainer, I'm more of a strength and conditioning coach.

    I wasn't telling you what to put word-for-word. More like giving you examples.

    IMO, the biggest "red flags" in your profile:
    1 - talk about how successful you are in your career.

    Why does this guy sell himself on that?
    that's a question that might pop into a lady's head. I just would not put that. Be mysterious. On mine I put Evil Genius as occupation. Then just mentioned I'm a trained computer geek in my profile briefly. Really, I'm a Network Engineer w/ my Associates.

    2 - talk about being short, but being able to lift a taller girl over your head.
    Can come off insecure about height. Just don't put it in your profile, and message taller women. Don't mention anything about it.


    One opener I came up with for my friend that is a big dude might help you out. He used it on PoF and gets decent responses:
    Would you date a guy that punched a midget?


    P.S. He was a 6'4" midget. :P
    I sometimes use that opener and just change the "P.S." part to fit me.

    I知 a freak show sucker for how it feels;
    turn the girl next door into hell on heels.

    Good profile, but I would skip the whole music/movies/shows/food list. Nobody ever reads those, and it detracts from the main point of the profile, which is to give her a glimpse of your personality/lifestyle.
