Personal Ad Makeover Contest: Joshua (DURING)

Welcome back to Joshua's profile.  Tarzan's treehouse is pretty rickety.   There are boards that look loose, nails sticking out everywhere, and I'm pretty sure that's not the blood of an animal in that corner over there. I know, you're scared.  But we won't learn anything unless we go in and really examine the crime scene.   Hold my hand... (Want to avoid a crime scene for your dating profile?  I can help!) … [Read more...]

Personal Ad Makeover Contest: Joshua (BEFORE)

I have to say, geek friends, that Joshua was a winner hands-down as far as needing this makeover.  Good thing the dice agreed with me!  (There are no coincidences!) Joshua's profile is long, full of spelling mistakes, and has a Tarzan theme that really needs to either totally go or be toned WAY down.   He's a funny guy that will make a great boyfriend for a geeky girl who loves to laugh, but right now... Tarzan scares Jane.  Jane runs away! (Want help making your personal ad less scary … [Read more...]

Personal Ad Makeover: “Fox” (DURING)

Fox's current profile has some great information, but it's a little scatterbrained in places.   He's surprisingly free of red flags - congrats on that, Fox!   You're one of the few. The sad side?  There's a laundry list of interests, including some slashlists!  What's a slashlist?  It's a laundry list with slashes instead of commas! Let's see where Fox stands at the moment: … [Read more...]

I threw some of the old entrants into this month's contest.   This month's winner goes by the nickname Fox.  He's a 35 year old Texan looking for a girl with an open mind and open heart.  His profile has lots of great ideas in it, but they're just thrown into a heap. Let's check out his current profile: … [Read more...]
