Hey /adv/, I decided to try online dating about a month ago and I posted here for advice about my profile. Since then, I started trying a lot harder and now I wanna know what you think again.
I have 7 pics now, 2 of which are selfies at home and the rest are either outdoors or out with friends.
Any advice or criticism?
Can you at least take a pic of yourself outdoors and with a different style of hair instead of lego combover. Act a bit dynamic in your pictures like you're actually taking a pic of yourself while out there and doing something.
I did that, I just thought I should use a normal bathroom selfie for my main picture like everyone else on the site
I like it, particularly the last line. The only thing I would suggest is include a non-digital interest. I don't love the line about being a critical thinker/realist (what do you mean by realist? Philosophical realism? it is trite imo) but I don't have any suggestions and it isn't terrible.
Your pictures sound reasonable. Have you had any success?
First of all smile instead if give a creepy stare at the camera. Second of all stop trying to matte your hair down. Give it volume, shape. The part itself isn't bad. Layer your hair.
I didn't get a single message for the first few weeks, but I only started trying harder about a week ago. I did finally get a message yesterday, but I messaged her back and she hasn't replied to that yet. She's kinda butt, too desu
>I don't love the line about being a critical thinker/realist
I'm just trying to say I'm an intellectual and a skeptic, but every way I say it seems wrong. I guess I'll just have to omit that idea entirely. Thanks senpai
Be specific. What do you do to be creative? An example or two that goes beyond the straight-forward descriptors would give more opportunity to connect to you.
Picture lower on the list--plaid shirt and vest? More fun than your bathroom selfie (as far as bathroom selfies...no no no no no).
Hm, could you give examples instead of saying it outright? Like... maybe you enjoy discussing some intellectual topic, like life on other planets, but you also enjoy debating the best kind of pizza? That isn't amazing but maybe it will inspire another idea.
>Picture lower on the list--plaid shirt and vest?
The only plaid I'm wearing in those is the green shirt fishing. Do you mean the last picture? The guy on the right is my roommate
Anyway, how's this?
C++ was a joke, I thought it was pretty obvious.
And what bottom line, this?
>Planning to start my software development business (someday)
Is that really so threatening? I said someday, implying it might not even happen
I love being creative. When I was younger I [painted], now I express my creativity through making software like websites and windows apps. On weekends I like to get together with friends and see a movie, hit the arcade, or watch a fun TV series together - [I just finished...] [I'm in the middle of...]. I love exploring and I've been around the world, but I also love fishing at [my local] beach.

Different people have different tastes. Diversity keeps things interesting. None of us are going to date him, but let's help our li'l bro present his best self for some nice young lady who thinks he is cool.
