Whew. Just put up my OKC profile for the first time ever! Looking for advice and some pointers.
My OKC profile is linked in my Mefi profile here.
I put it up just last night, and when I logged in this morning, I found out I had 37 Quick Matches. I'm so new that I'm not even sure what a quick match is, but apparently that's OKC's way of saying that someone's rated you highly. However, I've gotten only two "someone likes you!" e-mails, so I'm not sure what the deal is with that -- is OKC just stingy with those emails? Either way, I'm just wondering how to actually go about matching with those people... I have yet to give the quickmatch thing a whirl so I'm assuming my high-raters are mixed in with other profiles (a la Tinder) and that comes down to me also rating them highly. Is that right?
Anyhow, my friends to whom I've showed my profile have been big fans, but I thought I'd hit up you folks up here at the Green for advice, since I've found the previous OKC threads pretty enlightening. I know I definitely need a couple more pictures -- and I'm working on that -- but I'm wondering if there's any way my profile itself could be improved. Is it too wordy? Does it strike the wrong tone? I don't mind keeping the tone the way it is because it appears to capture my personality IRL, and that's something my friends have said that they definitely agree with, but I'm just guessing that it'd be helpful to have some impartial advice as to how I come off.
I have to admit that this is all a little overwhelming, but any input (please be gentle) would be appreciated -- just knowing that I'm on the right track here would really mean a lot to me :) Thanks in advance!
