Okay, I've been at this online dating this for some time now. I've messaged literally about 25 different girls now. Each message was not a generic "hi there" or something way to complex. usually they were a few lines maybe something witty, and ALWAYS had a touch of something personal from they're profile. They were confident and certainly not coming across like I was trying to hard. I even when to some forums and seriously copy pasted parts of other peoples messages that they claim to have some success with. I obviously always altered it to my liking. But seriously, what gives? Am I too ugly? The few (literally one or 2) girls that have initiated contact with me said my profile was good?
Here is the link to my profile online (I had to add two spaces between the "www" part because It won't let me share links):
Somebody please tell me what I'm doing wrong or what needs to be changed.
Most Helpful Guy
That's the thing with online dating. Girls get hundreds of messages and often a good one gets lost in between. They sometimes simply get fed up and frustrated with all those messages. So it doesn't necessarily reflect your message quality. How do I know? Met my girlfriend online and asked her.
To your profile: it's not bad. The opening paragraph is a bit odd. Self-protective of failure. That can be a downer. Vulnerability is very important if you want to convey that you are giving this an honest try. What I also noticed is that you are very careful not to exclude anyone. You say you like A, but then instantly tell that you also like B. don't he afraid to stick to your choices. University more important than going out? Say so. You also talk a lot about other (trashy) guys. While you can have your preferences, I would stick to what you like and not what you don't. Simple matter of focusing on the positive and not the negative. And on top of that, talking down to others is an absolute no go for a gentleman. Be a better man through your actions and not by pointing out other peoples failures. Other peoples shortcomings don't show your strengths. You need to be interesting. Not better than others.
So, here is your task: find all the negative remarks in your profile and replace them with something positive.
