Wow, thanks for the really helpful advice.
even sven, is editing profiles your career? This is some fantastic advice.
Negativity - I did not notice this as I read it my own voice. With that tone it is not a problem. The individual items seem fine to me, but I absolutely see how they can sum up to a tone of negativity. I will remove or rephrase most of them, but am not sure I want to do so with the intro. Looking at my local competition, almost every one of them uses several of those cliches and my guess would be my target audience would enjoy it. Will consider removing it in the future, or at least making it more positive.
Self-satisfied - That was where I knew I had a problem. I put too much emphasis on the individual clever comment rather than the overall tone. I think I will be cutting a good bit of it and reworking more.
A space for the reader to fit into my life - Probably the best bit of advice here. This is exactly what I need to have in mind while reworking it.
Movies/Music - Totally agree. No need for it.
What is it like to date me - More good advice. The sections I had that did this well got rewritten into what you saw. I think I need to step back and try working from those earlier versions.
Kids - Don’t mind women with kids, but are not specifically looking for them. I was already about to remove that bit before this, and will definitely be doing it now.
Robot Arm, a crack in the eggshell seems to parallel some of what even sven wrote. Get rid of the bathroom line? I thought it helped to make me look less pretentious, which I already realized was a problem.
pulykamell, thanks, I like it and think that at least for now it will be the one negative thing I keep.
Mr. Nylock, as you can see from the comments, it needed work. I did think it was pretty good to start with though.
Honey, this is my fear with the edits I will be making. I still want my personal sense of humor to come clearly through as it is people who like it that I really want to meet. I don’t want to overly genercize myself. Most of the men’s profiles in my area are painfully bland.
AHunter3, I thought the jerk comment was nicely self-effacing and made the last section read well. You think it is off-putting? As far as questions, I thought the best method was to answer the questions you care about, skip the ones you don’t, and then once you start looking at other people’s profiles remove the ones you don’t share in common with the kind of woman that most appeals to you.
Brynda, does everyone else agree on dumping the income? I would not have thought that was bragging as it is just a simple number. For me, blank incomes always seem to say “below the poverty line.” NASA has people cutting the grass too.
A couple of specific questions: Does the 9 image picture work? I was not sure that comes off well. Does the song link in the first section work?
Thanks again everyone for the advice. I will be cutting the length down a good bit, but I will still be keeping it as a fairly long profile as every profile of women I am actually excited to get to know has been long as well.
