    I know we're supposed to be supportive but what kind of deranged mental nutter are you? How many of those ran away as soon as you said it and of those that stuck around I assume they knew you had a bit of money?
    For some reason never. I'm blaming it on pheromones ;-)

    I suppose leaping into relationships feet first makes me a deranged mental nutter in many people's books, but since I'm skill still friends with most of my ex's I'm at least a cute one.

    Maybe it's a measure of the lass I'm seeing, she seems to be doing a good job of preventing me being one this time.

    Not really having much luck with online dating so far. On OkCupid because it was free and the layout doesn't make my eyes bleed. Can't work out what the issue is. I send out messages and very rarely get replies, so maybe I'm just saying the wrong things but I vary what I write and try to be original/specific to what's in the girl's profile. Equally, when I do get messages, its either by girls I have no interest in or they then never send a reply once I message them back.

    I can only assume there's something wrong with my profile so I'm going to post it here and see what peoples thoughts are. Help me. :(


    Self summary
    I'm a police officer (detective) in London which keeps me pretty busy. I really enjoy it though and can't imagine doing anything else. Outside of work I try to keep quite active, enjoying cycling, running, hiking etc. Though I'm also partial to the less healthy activities of computer games and the pub.

    What Iím doing with my life
    Working, and trying to find new ways of spending the time outside when not.
    Iím really good at
    Iím an empty essay... fill me out!

    The first things people usually notice about me
    Not a clue. Probably the beard.

    Favorite books, movies, shows, music, and food
    Movies: Not fussy but generally prefer action, thriller or horror stuff. Always have time for Pixar stuff as well.

    TV: Favourites at the moment would be Breaking Bad, Dexter, Boardwalk Empire, Game of Thrones and Spartacus. I equally enjoy comedies like How I Met Your Mother and Big Bang Theory. Also Family Guy.

    Music: I love metal; Iron Maiden being my favourite band. Enjoying more progressive music at the moment. Can still quite happily listen to almost anything though.

    Books: I enjoy reading mainly horror or fantasy. Just finished the most recent book in the Song of Ice and Fire series and am now at a loss for what to read next.

    Food: I eat pretty much anything, though I do like hot stuff and could never be a vegetarian.

    The six things I could never do without
    My bike
    The outdoors
    Music
    Spicy food
    The internet
    Beer

    I spend a lot of time thinking about
    Work. Followed very quickly by thoughts trying to distract me from work. Usually along the lines of when I'm next going to get the time to go cycling, skiing, camping etc.

    On a typical Friday night I am
    Down the pub with friends or watching a film at home. I tend to go out more on Thursdays and Saturdays for some reason.

    Yeah profile blurbs mean fuck all. Scan fodder after the 3rd or 4th email. As roadpod says it's all down to the photos.

    Ditch the current crop, buy yourself some fashionable togs down at the local fashion vendor and get some activity shots going. And no mirror shots!

    @Megapocalypse - I'm no expert, but if I was a potential lady friend I'd be put off by the several mentions of how busy you are/ how much you think about work. Oh, and I'd personally never have computer games (or the internet) listed as a hobby or something you couldn't do without...

    Other than that though it makes you sound pretty reasonable and interesting.

    Have you tried that uniformed dating website, out of interest? Isn't it for people who may want to date Policeman, Fireman and the like?

    Other than that, they're probably all filthy criminals, thinking it's some sort of sting operation against them ;)

    I work with a guy who used uniform dating for a little while and he had decent success. However one woman was nuts and basically stalked him into quitting the site, but that's half the fun of internet dating right?

    I'm a cross between the two. ;)

    Anyway, cheers for that. Everything mentioned is stuff I was thinking of changing/removing anyway. I signed up on Uniform Dating but the site is a complete mess full of mostly awful people, and you have to pay to get anywhere.

    Women do read profiles, but yeah photos are the bait. Yours is just a bit sensible. It needs more colour and intrigue.

    See, case in point, there's so much entendre you can take advantage of. Big truncheon, own handcuffs, helmet... You're wasting it.

    @Megapocalypse i wouldn't worry about reply rate, these sites are just another means of meeting people, you wouldn't expect to start talking to compatible girls in real life every day, same can be said for the internet, you just have to be patient and wait for a good un to come along.

    in terms of your profile, other people have said it but don't talk about work so much, you can mention it but it seems like you're defining yourself by your job which is unalluring, particularly when you have such interesting hobbies you can talk about.

    i think you need more "hooks", things that a girl will see and want to get in touch with you about, for example - talk about where you cycle or hike and indulge more about your active lifestyle. i would also be more specific about the films and music you like; if i see a profile where a girl lists one of my favourite bands i'd be more inclined to get in touch with her. where you say you're at a loss for what to read next, how about turning that into a question? a girl you message might have some ideas for you.

    this isn't a criticism but there are wee bits of negative language there, if you can't find the time to indulge in your hobbies then a girl might think you won't be able to find the time for her. "less healthy...", "not a clue", "could never be a vegetarian", it's maybe best to avoid saying things with negative connotations, for example i'd leave out any mention of not being able to be a veggie, it doesn't really add much to how you're being percieved as a person. instead of saying "going down the pub", you could maybe word that as "hanging around with mates" or "socialising" for a slightly more convivial feel.

    just to be facetious you should change your username to "sherlock"... :op

    all the best mate, i hope you manage to find someone on there, but it's just another way of possibly meeting someone, don't take it TOO seriously. good luck!

    You know the thing that stuck out in Megapocalypes profile? Having a beard. That could be the issue. A beard is a thing you grow when you are not bothered about relationships. I would not mention it though it's probably tricky to hide it in the profile pic.

    You are probably thinking it makes you look like Kurt Russell in The Thing but the first person I think of when knowing someone has a beard is Noel Edmonds with Jeremy Beadle coming in a close second.
