Personally, I look for common interests, intellect and someone down to earth. I think the line about not looking at other women shows humor and would make a good headline if worded in a funny way.Try grouping your topics together and give thought to sharing your lifestyle a bit and then go to the profile review thread and they will help you fine tune it.
Remember that we are the largest free online dating service, so you will never have to pay a dime to meet your has no vision at all.... and as far as my profile goes, I've tryed to shorten it up.... It shows a real personality, all too often lacking in this venue, and the photos are gorgeous. You probably hear this a lot, but these shots really show it. I'm legally blind, but not blind, and am always scared about how people will judge me.
at times I find it hard to find a date on this website.... because some women are nervus of meeting a blind person for the first time. Being a fellow Texan, having a car here is pretty essential too, so I know people judge me for that, especially this site having the beyond-stupid "car" question (though I have bioptic glasses and should be on the road soon).
All in all, show her that you are great company with a positive spin on life.
If you still have their attention after they know the situation, then it may be worth the effort to show them around the blind world as you see it. The fact that you are blind, does not excuse you from following the rules here, like the rest of us.
My hat is off to you bro and I wish you the best, you're a better person than me.
I attended a meeting just the other week about first impressions of the blind.

Anytime you have some limitation and you're worried by the limitations that others will perceive you as having, try to make the other person know that you're comfortable talking casually about it by using some humor and not dwelling on it nor turing it into a serious conversation.
I think most people are afraid of what they don't understand and are also afraid of trying to understand it by talking about things they think will make another person self-conscious.
Maybe do some volunteer work of some sort, something that gets you involved with other positive people. Well I guess you haven't either, lol sorry bad joke.
