At the time, I was an emotional wreck. My friends and family, I suppose, were getting pretty tired of my self-loathing and hibernation. They really wanted to see me get back out there and after a few weeks months I too wanted to get back out there. I started to read the profiles of other guys just to see what they were doing different and that is when I discovered it.
I help people find love! And sometimes I'm on TV. Of course you need compelling photos, but those who are looking for a real relationship will look beyond a pretty face to find out what you are about. It would be nice if everyone could give you the benefit of the doubt and magically see what a fascinating, unique, loving person you are, but that's not how online dating works. A generic profile that doesn't say much or says the wrong things will be overlooked by the very people you truly hope to connect with.
