You need to smile. Add a couple pics of yourself.
The part were you state you spend most of your time in the shop. Lost relationships over it...some might not even bother talking to you. It says "i don't have time for you.unless your in the shop helping".

I agree with this woman's opinion.

Partly because I've been through that routine where my girl friend felt I put more into my jobs and crafts ,
Than I did her.

You admit this in your description...

So why is it .. you still seek a woman ..if your shop stuff
Comes first.
Every man has to remind himself...why it is he works so hard for what he acquires in life.

Most often a man will have a dream car or a dream home
..or.wish to have a dream talent.

All just so he can find a dream woman.

With out the dream woman in the passenger seat of that dream car ....

The dream car really isn't worth shit..
No matter how fast it may fly or look.
You can't f**k a dream car or the wall of a castle.
A woman will kiss you back.
Material things won't.


You list a lot of negative energy in your description.
As to where you feel cheated , ignored or , left out.

I relate to that energy ,
I've been let down by women before ..so i understand where the hurt and drippyness
Comes from in your words.
Sometimes us men dont hear our selves coming off as a pitty party to others because we have so much hidden anger from deep down inside.

Someone who is life long familier with you ..will sometimes except that hurt puppy that hides in us all.

But..a stranger will only find you to be complexed and broken.
So they will easily pass you by.

Just as your here seeking happyness from a woman who excepts your craftyness.

The women who read your profile are much often the same. They too have either been hurt or left behind.
So they seek a happy man that can give them reason to smile.

If you show you are sad..you then just show a woman your bad medicine.
And can not improve their life any so theyl pass you over for
the out spoken happy go lucky guy.

Often this is what a woman is dictating when writing in her own profile ..shes seeking
"a strong man" .

Shes meaning mentally ..
Not so much physically or materially.

You must learn to recognize this..if not you may wonder around alone for years to come.

Its good you share photos of your talents..
Because it shares a few things about your self.

But since its a date site..
Its more important to have several photos of your self on board...and I just see you have only one.

In the dating world a person can not be shy ..

Some people will even wonder if your real or fake if having just one photo.

A smile does help but maybe you have bad teeth..

I have a missing top front incisor
So I rarely ever smile in life or photos ...because I have that mike Tyson grin , any time I smile and hate it.

..but I'm in a happy relationship with a woman who excepts it...maybe one day I'll be able to afford an implant.

How ever , Not every one is always so lucky , I guess.

Thank you......I didn't realize how I was coming off when I was writing my description......I do have to say that it wasn't ment to come off as ive been let down by the women I've been with.... I was just trying to be up front and honest about the faults I have and am working on changing.......so I'm going to do some rewording and see if I have anymore pics of me that I can put up...... thanks again......

I just saw ya on the todays statuses of ppl in dh. So I came over to check ya out. I have read your profile and saw your pictures you've shared. I Love the pics! What a cool car! I love the fire pit you made, very cool! And I don't think you went overboard btw. Give yourself some credit . I admire the creative side of ppl, so I enjoyed your pictures. The only question I was left with was...what does he look like without a beard? Do you have any pics without one? I'd like to see your face. If u dint that's fine, I don't mean it negatively more intrigued to see the real you behind the beard is all. Now the written part: I do love your honesty. That is important. I think it would suit you to find a woman who would hang out with you to do your hobbies but that's all I was left with. Are you willing to go and do things you wouldn't normally do with her? Or is it all about you? Cause when you said I'm not the walk on the beach kinda guy. I thought...well aren't you the romantic lol. so its fine if you listed what things you would be willing to do other than sit around the house waiting for you to come out of the garage to watch a movie. Even for me looking for friends to hang with id wonder what kind of movies you like, do you like to b.s. Or play cards, or do you like the sand dunes, mud bogging, go to races, camping, fishing, dancing, I don't know enough about you from what you've wrote to make me feel like you'd be fun to hang with. I'm left more to think id be lucky to have very little time with you. I mean that very kindly. Being honest because others may avoid you. I agree you shouldn't judge a book by its cover, but finding an open person and fun person is. As soon as I see a couple things in common then I can find something to relate to and say hello.

Take out the 'I'm nots' and that garbage at the end about being judged by profile words and pics. Just what the hell do you think a woman you will probably never meet has to go by on interwebz date sites?

Trust me. They will view the profile and form an opinion.

Period. It's really that simple.

Closing the profile with that crap is almost pathetic. Like you know you're gonna get shot down, so you're responding to it BEFORE it happens.

Shows a lack of confidence. Don't do that.

if you only read a persons profile because of what that person looks like then basicly your judging a book solely by the cover...


Yes, yes we are, because we can. So what.

You have designed your own book cover to be presented in a certain image/style. That is how you chose to be judged initially. If you truly want to be judged by your personality alone, remove your photos. Then add some personality.

Consider this a catalogue, where women (and men) can flip from page to page until something/one catches their fancy. Do you write to EVERY SINGLE WOMAN in your area? If you do, you're really desperate. Everyone has some parameters of attraction and what they want in a partner. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

If you feel you are being judged for how you look, you have several choices:

1. change how you look/dress
2. get better photos
3. whine about it and do nothing
4. do nothing and realize that's how the process works.

Your call.

This place is more than a catalogue.

Its a HUMAN GROCERY STORE! (Ain't that rich?)

We like it, we sample. If it tastes good, is resonably healthy, and requires a minimum of prep.....

We begin the 'ordering' process.

If you're lucky, we park you in the cart and take your a** home.

Oops, what were we talking about?.?.?.?....

You don't say enough in your bio to truly NOT be judged mostly on looks. Your photos at this point say more about you than your bio does.

You look smug, aloof, detached/unemotional. Maybe that IS you. Maybe that's not. But that's the impression those things give.

You're a car guy OP so you'll get this analogy.

You're on Craigslist or eBay motors. You find a potentially slick whip, but you go to look at the pics, the hood isn't popped, the photos are taken from a distance and are blurry, and it doesn't even say whether it has a V8 or a doggy inline 6. The next listing of almost the same rig, has all the pertinence and has pictures that show under the hood, show everything close enough to know its had some light body work, but it is actually still pretty straight.

Why would you message the first guy or even risk buying a car you can't see, when you can go right to the next option that has all the information and pics you need to know you're interested.

Don't be the first car. Be the second car.

You're posting on a thread. It's against the rules, and really bad form, to hijack someone else's profile review.

thread. aka TOPIC. main page of this forum, upper right it says CREATE: TOPIC / POLL ... choose topic and write your own. that way you are the original poster of your own topic, and all reviews will be about your profile. otherwise it's too clustered having multiple peoples' reviews on one topic to keep track of it all

I'm just gonna say.

I found your profile a little hard to read because you didn't use paragraphs very well.

And omit the comments about what you feel about looks. It's a little bit asinine.

HUGE improvement. Well done. You actually sound sincere and like you'd be fun to have a beer with and talk about cars 'n shit. There are women out there that will appreciate the work you do, and maybe score some free bodywork or car repairs in the process.

Now you REALLY need to get a smiling main photo without sunglasses. Even if you don't like your smile, at least grin. Otherwise you look mean or bored. Don't give that first impression.

For sure. Much better. Separate everything into paragraphs though with a full line break in between. Add some more interests if you can. To the interests section. You mention bowling in your bio. And after it say 'and many others but you'll hafta ask me about those' that's fair. But list them in interests. If something like 'pressing flowers' was in your interests, and she was curious about it, she could ask you about it. That can open the door to communication. I would also encourage specifically stating you hope to find that one gal to spend forever with or whatever it is you're seeking. Your profile gives off that vibe, but a lot of women who have been burned on these sites will find that omission as a red flag that you'll take whatever you get (whether it's a coffee date that turns into something more or simply an arranged adult play date). Don't let her assume the wrong thing. We're kind of notorious for that.
