I think the problem is twofold. First, I am old fashioned. I think that a man should approach a girl first and make an effort. Second, I think online dating tends to give men the false sense that women will do all of the work. Then there are those looking for options. I have appreciated being able to look at the banter back and forth, but I wonder if I am helplessly outdated. Maybe. I just know that one day someone worthwhile will find their way to me--probably not online--and I will find my way to him and we will be better together than apart.In the meantime, I am not putting my eggs in this basket or any other basket. I am living my life and believing...that's all.
I definitely think that is a big turnoff with most every man here. You would do better not posting any, but that would get you next to no interest too. So, it's up to you.
I feel for you, but since you want attention now, you need to find a way to step into the now. If you feel you don't know how to get photos up that are current, then have someone help you. Try the folks at your local parish or at a local media/copy center, or your daughter or a co-worker can help you.
As for your profile, and what it says, well you are the only one that should be writing/updating/modifying it. It should be written factually and in your own words. Doctoring it to be more appealing will just not go over well in the long run. So, I am sorry I can't help you there.
