    I got some very good critique on my profile, so I am working on rebuilding it completely. But I have some questions about how direct I should be about what I am looking for.

    For instance, if one of my goals is to get rid of my credit card debt, how obvious should that be while a POT is reading about what I’m looking for? If I were to say, “I’m working on trying to get on solid ground with my DTI ratio so that I can bring my house-hunting goals to a shorter time-horizon,” how does a phrase like that read? Does it read too much like a resume? And should that go under the category of about me or about what I’m looking for?

    I’ve taken what I’ve heard to heart, and I think I’m on a better track, but I initially approached this from the wrong direction, so feedback is appreciated.

    I wouldn’t bring money into the equation. I think it’s okay to say that you are looking for financial assistance but I wouldn’t be discussing debt. That will be a total turn off to many of the SD’s. If you are looking to discuss long term goals it’s definitely okay to say that “one day you hope to purchase the house of your dreams” or something to that nature but don’t discuss the debt along with it.

    Calababy is totally right.

    Remember to answer the 2 key questions:

    1. What is unique and special about you?
    2. Why will you make a SD’s life better?
