I am getting frustrated (probably overstated) with the lack of views on my profile and I frankly (can’t believe I’m writing these words) am not confident in my profile. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. I’m a successful, funny, good guy and shouldn’t (IMHO) be struggling. It wasn’t this hard in my twenties, LOL.
Taking a quick look at your profile, I can see a few pretty major things to tweak that I think will help you get more of a response.
Since you don’t explain it or allude to it in any of your answers, it is a bit of an odd choice. You pride yourself on your sense of humor, so this would be a great place to catch the attention of other like-minded singles who would appreciate a tongue-in-cheek profile name.
You provide 4 photos that show your look is consistent, albeit 3 of the photos are quite similar. The 3rd one, in the striped shirt, is the best and should be your main profile photo. The last one with the 2 boys needs a description (You don’t have kids, so who are they? Your nephews?). The other 2 could be stronger and, seeing as they are all taken from your computer’s camera (which is basically a selfie and not recommended), I suggest trading them out as soon as you get other, more interesting, photos taken.
Your intro is really great! This is where your sense of humor truly shines through – rather than just saying you’re funny, you also show it through these couple of sentences. I don’t see a need to change anything here.
I honestly like everything you’ve written and how you’ve gotten across your personality. The one addition I would make is to use your sense of humor to poke fun at yourself, namely, your height and your cueball-shaped head as well. No offense, it is what it is. I feel like you’re the type of guy to embrace these things, so address them and embrace them and women will too. Using that third photo I suggested you make your profile photo, you can make reference to being an Evan Handler look-alike. He’s the actor who played lawyer Harry Goldenblatt on “Sex and the City” and also poked fun at his short stature and bald head before anyone else could.
Finally, I suggest adding in a bit more about who and what you are looking for in a relationship. Focus on the positive, rather than what you don’t want. And under the “My Ideal Match” column, you mention wanting a woman who only identifies as “single” but at 46 years old, I think it would behoove you to consider women who are divorced as well. In that same note, make sure your age range is realistic – 35-48 is a good place for you to start.
