That's not true. I am a freelancer though.

How many job you posted? One? Two? I guess one.

Now what, how many application you received? 50 / 60 / 100 or more? It can be anything right?

Now, how many did you hired? 1 / 2 or more? No one?

Look, freelancers can apply in many different job post. Suppose there are 50 freelancers in this site and 50 clients also. Those client posted 50 job post and all the freelancers applied for all the jobs. If all the client hired 1 person for their job how many freelancer stay unemployed?

It is going to give you some fuel. I hope so.

 Yes, there is a huge number of freelancers competing for a much lower supply of jobs. It is a buyer's market by a gigantic margin.

Question is, what are you going to do about it to win that job? I mean except of what Petra pointed out so succinctly?

Jesus, it's your profile. You need to rework it. In the help section, you'll find useful tips about writing attracting overviews. Also, your rate, at $5 per hour, is way too low.
