Your profile is great!! I wouldn't change one word. As for the undesirables, they are going to wink. They wink at all of us. They just want a woman with a pulse. While your profile is outstanding, I would advise you to join in the forums. It is a good way for people to get a better sense of who you are.
I saw a profile once that looked like a checklist.... literally! I thought it was straight to the point... however, I don't know how much luck he got with it! As far as this site goes, you get out of it what you put into it. Post in the forums and let people get to know you and see your personality. I think it is important to state what you want and weigh that against the men who are showing interest.... see if there is a fit anywhere. Good luck in your search sweetie!
Dee and Music, I also love your profiles, so if unsavory types are contacting all of us then we must all be goddesses and stone foxes. :)
By the way, thanks to others who have emailed me advice. I don't want to put you on blast but (( )) to you, too!
My co-workers and one the customers at the shop I work at pushed me on line and to this site in particular. One thing some smart diva said resonates with me.
She met her husband of four years online. And she said, that when putting out there what you want, be very sure and focused. Creating a profile should help us in defining who we are and therefore help us clarify the type of partner we want. It's like an affirmation, if you will.
If that's true, then I sincerely hope that all the positive you all are putting out comes back!
Islandgirl it really doesn't matter what you write they will come.They don't read your profile. Frankly they don't care what it says. It seems to me it is like fishing with a net adventually they will catch something (probably more than they bargained for) if they just keep trolling. Hey maybe we can all get the pice we have been sent and make a coffee table book.
