Profile Feedback: Edition #9
This month's profile comes courtesy of Rhona - she'd love to know what you think about her profile, what could be added, or even what's best left out.
Sometimes it’s great to get a second pair of eyes on something. That’s why, every month, we showcase one user’s eHarmony profile, asking for your feedback. We’ve had a great response so far, and for our ninth edition we’re showcasing Rhona’s profile below.
Whether you’re male or female, we’d love your comments. What do you think of the profile as a whole? What do you think works? What do you think could be improved? All comments are gratefully received, but please, nothing rude or overly personal. She’s looking for helpful critique not harsh criticism!
And, if you’re interested in getting involved, you can find out more here:
The one thing I am most passionate about:
I enjoy keeping fit, particularly running, and enjoy taking part in races. I am basically an outdoors-y person at heart. While long-distance running is my sport of choice, when I’m not training I prefer more leisurely pursuits such as hiking/hillwalking, cycling, sightseeing, etc. When not outdoors I like to visit museums/art galleries, exhibitions, places of historical and/or social interest, etc. I love music and am a keen participant in an amateur operatic society.
The most important thing I am looking for in a person is:
Honesty. Someone who is honest with himself and with everyone else both materially and emotionally. Beyond that I am looking for a gentle, caring man who shares my outlook on life.
In my own words:
The most influential person in my life has been:
My closest friend – she is always encouraging and very supportive, and has a positive outlook on life which is infectious!
The three things which I am most thankful for:
• I value the close bonds of my immediate family – they are the most important part of my life.
• I value personal security.
• I am grateful for my health and fitness, and the opportunity and ability to pursue an active lifestyle
Three of my best life-skills are:
• Achieving personal goals
• Keeping physically fit
• Finding pleasure and contentment in simple things
The one thing I wish MORE people would notice about me:
Under the surface I am a pretty emotional person, my feelings tend to run very deep.
The things I can’t live without are:
• My family
• Some peace and quiet – space to chill and relax.
• Freedom to be who I am without fear of ridicule
• Air, food, water – bet everyone says that!
The first thing people notice about me:
I come across to most people as being quiet and calm, and pretty level-headed.
Some additional information I want you to know:
I can come across as shy and retiring until I get to know someone – don’t let that put you off, there’s a lively, caring, fun-loving person underneath!
I typically spend my leisure time:
Keep fit – running, swimming, hiking/hillwalking, cycling, gym classes. Reading, particularly fantasy (eg Terry Pratchett, Ray Bradbury, Douglas Adams, JK Rowling) Amateur Operatics (musicals and light operetta) I enjoy learning in my spare time as well, and have recently completed an Honours degree through the OU. I enjoy the theatre, cinema, and performing arts though I don’t often have the opportunity and/or time to go as often as I would like. I love eating out, though again it’s something I don’t do often.
The last book I read and enjoyed:
I’m always reading something so it’s difficult to pick one book over all the others. I am currently reading Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” – I’ve been meaning to read it for years and have kept putting it off. I’m enjoying it so much I’m now wondering why I didn’t pick it up sooner!
According to my friends:
My friends describe me as:
• Physically Fit
