Man vows to update his dating profile picture after 12 years


Windsor, ON – Richard Timms of Windsor recently announced his decision to update his dating profile picture for the first time since finishing university in 2004.   “I’ve been on Plenty of Fish, E-Harmony and Christian Mingle for the last decade and have always used my graduation picture from the University of Windsor as my profile picture” said Timms at a recent media conference.

Mr. Timms went on to say “I think it’s time for a change as some women I have met have seemed a bit startled when they see me.   I don’t exactly look the same as I did back in 2004”.   In addition to gaining about 80 pounds and losing all of his hair Timms has grown a somewhat disturbing 70’s porn-mustache in the intervening years.

When asked what picture he will use for his new profile picture Mr. Timms advised “I have one taken in very bad lighting with shadows over most of my face and I’m wearing a hat so I have to say that is the one that will get me the ladies”.   Known as the Navy Walrus to his friends and acquaintances at the local pub Mr. Timms is looking forward to many more on-line dates and thinks it is just a matter of time before he finds Ms. Right.
