I dont really have any other photos of myself that look okay, Im horribly unphotogenic.
Is it better to have a long profile or short? I can't think of any good user names or headlines for pof lol
It's summer, the weather is beautiful, go out to a park with friends and have them help you take a picture. And then uh, post those pictures back here, it's also been shown that strangers are better at picking a good profile picture than the individual in question is. Honestly, I don't have a problem with the way you look in those photos, I just dislike the lighting and background, and the graduation robe. I'd be way more okay with them if it was just you in your dress shirt, it still has the formal feel but it's not randomly graduation formal. What is important to you? What do you like? What are your interests? Generally I would try to think of a name based off of that. So for example, I play a lot of League of Legends, and one of my fav champions is Lulu, she has a line "that tasted purple" so my username was "love tastes purple" a reference to Lulu and League.
My interests are Cooking, Watching Sports, Reading, Movies, Listening to Music, Video Games and Workingout
Im skinny though and dont have any muscle
I would go for short and sweet, people have short attention spans and they're looking at a lot of profiles. Do have good spacing (paragraphs, don't have one or two giant walls of text). Do try to convey your personality. Are you funny, witty, enjoy movies, you could include a joke, a play on words, or a reference to a movie or an appropriate movie quote. It's basically like trying to write your personal statement for college admission, you want to try to convey who you.
A little bit of muscle on my arms and legs thats it
So how much of that paragraph should, I cut out?
nvr mind lol here it is 😂I'm extremely passionate and care deeply about the health and well being of others which is why, I plan on going to school this fall to pursue a career as an Respiratory Therapist or Practical Nurse! Cooking is one of my favourite hobbies, I enjoy cooking a variety of foods and dishes, but my favourites are pasta and stir frys! I exercise two to three times a week to stay healthy. When, I'm not working or exercising, I enjoy watching action and comedy movies, listening to music, and reading non fiction, my grade six teacher ruined fiction for me lol. I am looking for someone who is honest, kind, considerate, with a good sense of humour.
What about headlines would either of these work?1. Im looking for that special someone2. Looking For Trouble3. To text or call... this is what, I think
It's okay if you're skinny. My boyfriend is freaking skinny, he'd probably fit into my skinny jeans better than me, well except for the length of the jeans since I'm short and he's kind of tall. The paragraph isn't terribly long but it is kind of dry, it mostly reads like a laundry list of your goals and your interests. You want to inject part of your personality, so for example, I also love cooking but I'm also a romantic and I love animated films, so I probably would say something like, 'I love cooking and pasta's one of my favorite dishes, perhaps we could have our own Bella Notte moment.' or 'I love cooking and I love eating what I cook even more, but it's difficult to create a Bella Notte moment as one, perhaps you could help me?'. The latter also has a sort of playful/flirting air to it while still referencing my love for cooking, pasta, animated films, and I'm likely a romantic. It adds a personal spin onto cooking that separates me from everyone else who likes to cook.
Fav sports team? Fav movie? Fav book? Fav band/song? Did any book/movie/song have a significant impact on you? Why do you care a lot about health? It's obvious between your career choice and the fact you cook/exercise the health is important to you. How would you describe your personality?Since it seems like staying physically healthy is something that is extremely important to you, and it seems like you would probably want a partner who is probably fairly interested in staying healthy/fit (food + exercise), if I were you, I'd try to see if I could think of a username somehow referencing that. So like, if you like running, perhaps 'running for love' or 'running to love'. I'm not a huge fitness/exercising person so the username suggestion isn't the best.
As for headlines, what are you looking for? Just to casually date and have fun? Someone who you can see a future with long term? Someone to talk to/a friend? Casual hookups/ONS? What is your goal?
My favourite team is the Blue Jays, favourite movie Tropic Thunder, favorite band Three Days Grace, as for my personality, Im quiet and serious, and can be a goofball at times 😂. I'm interested in healthcare because, I was born 15weeks premature at only 1.1 pounds and, I want to give back and help other people so their lives aren't as difficult as mine has been.
You could reference the movie by saying something like, "I'm a simple guy, what you see is what you get, I'm not a dude playing a dude disguised as another dude. I'm looking for an honest straightforward girl, when it comes to love, we don't read the script the script reads us." (so the last line is a sort of, we don't play games and we make our own rules when it comes to love, and it's a reference to the movie)... are these examples helping? Like it's still basically saying the same things as what you said in your paragraph, except it's incorporating your interests in as well. Try to include your personality and interests, sort of a show not tell type of writing. Like you can tell me you like the film Tropic Thunder or you can show me you like the film Tropic Thunder by a reference. The best references are ones that still work even if they haven't seen the film. If she hasn't seen it, she probably would think the guy being a guy disguised like a guy line is funny.
Thanks for your help, I hope the girls go easy on me since, I look like a teenager apparently 😂.
If you fairly recently graduated high school, it makes sense that you still look young. It's okay, a guy friend of mine has such an innocent looking baby face that when we met up with an internet friend, her mom wanted all the details on us in case we were like axe murderers or something, I was okay since I was female, and he was okay because the minute her mom took a look at his fb picture she was like, yeah he's such an innocent looking guy, daughter of mine, don't corrupt him!
The two of them ended up dating and now it's just a question of who corrupted who... XD
thanks for the MHO :)
Photos of catching you off guard, it doesn't looked staged or like your posing.

I look the same way right now and, Im 23
I still look 18
try one more casual also
What do you mean?
I know lol, Im 23 though
These were grad pictures 5 years ago, I dont have many decent pictures, Im unphotogenic all my pictures look terrible
You could easily pass for 15. My suggestion is to take pictures that don't look like they should be in a year book. For example, have a candid park picture and a picture doing something you love.
Okay thanks for the advice
Im still going to look young though no matter what, Im doing, I carded for everything lol
