Well, a profile not written all in CAPS would be a nice start.
Modesty is just arrogance in stealth mode

You seem to be looking for paid work yet describe yourself as 'amateur'. There is no reason why you should not attract paid work so make it clear what you want. All the TF work in the world doesn't pay the bills.
And the CAPS didn't bother me.

Strike up a relationship with local photographers, tidy up you portfolio showing versatility, the type of work you are looking for if you don't have a good quality image of the style you want leave it off until you have one.
Bon chance with the future

The profile notes starting with small case and then caps look very lazy, like you cant even be bothered re-typing a line, like typical going through the motions "think I will put myself up in a model site but I'm just messing around really"

You look like you could get some work though. The snaps showing your figure are a good idea but are very unflattering. Do the same again but ask the photographer to take them from a low angle...camera position about thigh level.

Good luck.
I tend to be a modest man, but then I do have a lot to be modest about.

It was the comments section so I assume you have corrected it since. Nothing major, looked like you caught the caps button while typing and did not realise. Lately I'm afraid that counts for high drama on this site while things are so quiet

Anyhow best of luck with your modelling.

You don't come across as being happy in front of a camera. I don't mean you should be smiling but you need to look relaxed or appear comfortable.

Some photographers have that effect on a model unfortunately.
