I am going to be moving to Los Angeles and created a free dating profile so I can chat some people up and get a peek at the dating scene before I get there.
I think I'm a rad chick and I wrote my profile to match what I think is my personality.
The problem? I am not getting very may return messages and I can't seem to figure out why.
I have had a few guys tell me I am just not what they are looking for.
i would appreciate a man's point of view.

I'm going to go through and make suggestions.
"I am however awkward at talking about myself and I find it rather silly- the whole "who are you?" kinda question."
Take this out. It's really cliche.
"I can be pessimistic and cynical but I would rather be optimistic. "
Try not to be negative. Maybe say, "I always try to be optimistic."
"For that reason, I can be hard to really "get." I can be strange, sarcastic, crass, abrasive or whatever I feel like."
You don't want to give people reasons not to message you. You can always tell people, "Sorry, but no thanks," after they message you. It doesn't do you any good to put people off from the beginning.
"many of whom I cared for up until the day they passed."
yikes! that's a downer.
"When I am pissed, you know it. I don't blow up or get dramatic, but I don't take sh*t. The first thing you do or SHOULD notice about me is that I command respect. I am not a meek individual. "
Again, these aren't negative qualities, but they might make people think you're not very friendly.
Putting food and water in your six things might have been funny the first couple of times someone did it, but I've probably seen scores of profiles that say that.
I think if you change those things, it will be pretty great. Also, I'm not crazy about your hairstyle in your picture without sunglasses, but I think if you wore your hair down in the same pose, it would be better as your main picture than the sunglasses one.2
