Post your dating profiles and help others who post theirs.
Femanon here. I think your description is very nice. It's a good mix between humorous, down to earth, having interests and being a good person. The thing i PERSONALLY don't like is the smoking. But that's just my preference. Good on you on being honest. Also, check the spelling of kaleidoscope.
The other issue are the pics. You look so different in them. I have NO idea how you look now. And they aren't really flattering. I'm sure you could take better ones! The snowmobile one is ok. It's nice to have some pics of you being active up. Take the others down and retake current ones.
What's the best way to open up a conversation with a girl? The ones I message usually have the same interest as me (nerdy stuff, outdoorsy stuff, music) but I feel like I come off as a dope.
I usually look at their profile and find out what they do for fun, then I'll message them something like
>I found you on my matches. That means we're supposed to watch netflix and cuddle, right..
>How does this work? We're dating now, right?
Usually works if they think I'm attractive. Just met a cute asian girl on okc who's up for casual sex. Used the first line on her.
At the time (and still now, that I look at it) there wasn't a "husky" option. "Overweight" just sounds bad and "a little extra" sounds dishonest, so I'll just blank the field and try to use some honest photos.
Just treat it the same. I usually mention how long it would take me to get to their place after they say they're interested in meeting.
I only meet with people within an hour drive. Not worth anything more than that.
Maleanon, guess I've been out of the game a bit but I met my gf on OKC, I think maybe even exactly a year ago (or at least first messaged)
Get a better profile pic.
And your messages should be something interesting, but not something where it looks like you're try-harding.
Honestly, my experience has all told me that the more time you spend chatting online, the less likely you are to ever meet in person. My best two dates happened after 1 hour of chatting, and we met that same day, and after 3 messages (my gf).
Conversely my longest convo's (one was like 70 messages another was 40 over like 3 weeks) resulted in pretty much absolutely nothing happening.
Who knows, maybe it'll be dif for you.
I'm sure you'll get a lot of guys who will message you just because you're cute, but personally I probably wouldn't have just because your profile lacks a bit of personality.
It says a lot about what you do and like, but doesn't reveal much about who you are, and how you're like. All i get is that you're sweet. Is that all you really want to display?
>I am so alpha
>look at all these betas
>talk to womenz in real life you nerds
Fuck off with the the 'holier than thou' mentality you still frequent the same Thai underwater basket weaving imageboard that we do you faggot.
Just got out of a 3 year relationship and no nothing about how to meet people. Trying my best not to sound too much like a nerdy fag on my profile but once again no experience.
baby face is killing me. You don't even know. No one wants to date someone who looks 16 but 14 year olds.
The both of you need some better pictures.
First two sentences on your profile should go somewhere else. Start off on an upbeat note and keep it there. Instead of things like "I'm trying to figure things out, hoping for the best," try "I'm looking forward to what life has next for me."
Mentioning anime and vidya anymore is a death sentence. It sucks, but even remotly showing interest in the subjects pretty much is a mark of death (trust me on this one, I know). Best bet is to just tone that down until you have a girl actually physically meeting you and the two of you are getting comfortable. At that point, it's almost expected that you two start talking about your weird sides.
Lastly, a little extra enthusiasm never hurts. You're here to meet girls, not "meh" girls. Coming off as somewhat depressed is always a red flag.
Self deprecation gets you zip with the ladies. Read what I told the guy above your post, and try to apply it to your profile. Also baby face isn't that horrible; go find a decent barber and get some more mature looking threads. You'll be surprised how quickly you can turn a younger-looking face to your advantage.
