I've been on okcupid and POF for two years, Tinder for about 6 months, and I have had zero luck. I have only met two women from the sites in two years. In that span of time I went on a date with a lady after exchanging several messages and a few phone conversations, it went well, pretty hot make out session in her car for a couple hours afterwards. She could tell that I'm not a burnout but she wasn't too comfortable that I smoke weed based on her past experience, so we moved on, no biggie, she was nice and forthright about it. I met another lady who was a 92% match, I thought we had a lot in common, a lot of the same interests, more than previous relationships, she seemed interested started to hangout after messaging a few weeks, she initiated text conversations every day, hung out once or twice a week for a couple months, then all of a sudden it just stopped. No idea why. Thought she might've met someone else, though didn't seem so according to Facebook. Last couple messages didn't get a response so I stopped. Bummer oh well. Outside of that, I've managed to get at least 15-20 phone numbers; most seemed interested but stopped responding after a couple texts, and a good amount never responded at all after saying "text me some time" (so weird). I look forward to meeting someone new, learning about someone, getting to know, so I carry myself in communication that way and act like it. I'm wondering if I should change my approach somehow. I work full time, have creative interests, take care of myself and responsibilities, no kids, never been married, 95% of women are immediately turned off that I currently live with family (high medical costs, student loans, changing careers, classes, etc…) which sucks but… I'm just trying to further educate myself while being patient.
Is there a way that I could get some feedback or a critique with my dating profile info? To be honest, I don't have many female friends to ask about this stuff.

Admitting your shy, less independent than average and being less adventurous than average would probably not help your case. However other than that I don't see anything else that is striking bad or off-putting you seem like an interesting, fun enough guy it seems odd to me that you've had no luck. I also live at home and they don't seem to like that maybe if you can move out and get your own place, they probably think you have financial issues and can't take care of them. Many say they don't want to be taken care of but a great majority end up working part time or being stay at home moms so you need to make that money man. I myself have tried online dating and I haven't had much luck either I had two texting buddies if you will but one lasted a couple days and the other a few weeks and then nothing. In my case both were far away enough so I couldn't meet up within a week or two I would have to plan a trip to see them. One was 4 hours away the other was 8 hours away. Good luck man hopefully things start working out0
