How To Write Your Profile On A 50+ Dating Site

If you are over 50 and want to start dating, using a 50+ dating site is the best way to meet someone. It is important to understand, however, that if you don’t have a profile that is nicely written and designed, you won’t be as successful as you would if you know how to write a profile and if you take it seriously.

Know What a Successful Profile Would Include Overall

The most successful profile would let other singles get to know you as a whole. You also want your to include enough information in your profile so that it will weed out any singles that would not be a good match for you. If you are getting requests from other singles who you have nothing in common with, you will be wasting time that could be spent on singles that you do have things in common with.

Be Honest, But Not Share Too Much

Even though you are not meeting someone in person, you still need, to be honest, when you are creating your online profile. If you embellish, the person that you are interested in will eventually find out. When they do, it can cause problems before the relationship even starts. You should write a general description of yourself, without bragging. Also, you don’t want to tell too much about yourself. If you include your entire life story in your profile, you won’t have anything to talk about on your first date. Part of the fun of dating is learning more and more about the other person as you go. When you add just enough information, but not too much, there will be a bit of exciting mystery about you.

Focus on Your Language

It is a good idea to focus on the language that you use when you create your profile. You don’t want to use language that you don’t normally use in everyday conversation. You don’t want to use a thesaurus to create a profile that makes you sound intelligent. Not only is this a turn-off, but it will give potential singles a false idea of what you are really like.

Write About Yourself

There are several things that you should include when you are writing about yourself. You should touch on things like what you look like and what you do for a living. These are things that are important to other single over 50. If you are a religious person, this should be included in your profile. Mentioning whether or not you have children is also important. These are things that could be a deal breaker for some singles. Getting this information out right away is the best way to attract the right person for you.

It is a good idea to mention a few positive character traits. If you have a good sense of humor or if you are adventurous, it should be included in your profile. Finally, mention any hobbies and interests that you have. This is the best way to meet someone who you have something in common with.

Discuss Your Ideal Match

It is a good idea to mention exactly what you are looking for in your profile If other singles do not know what you are looking for, you could end up wasting time with someone who does not possess the qualities that you are looking for. If you are looking for someone of a particular faith, someone with a certain level of education, or if you have a preference when it comes to children, it should be mentioned in your profile. You can also touch a bit on age and appearance as these things have a great deal to do with the attraction that you would have with the other person. When other singles know exactly what you are looking for, it will keep you from wasting your time on people who do not fit your ideal match criteria.

Your Profile Photo is Important

The first thing that a person is going to see when scrolling through the list of eligible singles is your profile picture. Most people have a photograph where they think they look unbelievable. This is the picture that you should use. It is best to use both a close up shot and a full body shot. This will give other singles the best idea of what you look like. It is important to use a current photo of yourself. If you use a photo of yourself when you were in the 30’s, your date could be disappointed when you meet in person. You should also avoid using group photos. The people viewing your photos may have a hard time figuring out which person in the photo is you. You also want to avoid using family photos. Most singles want to see what you look like. They don’t really care what your children or grandchildren look like. If you have a group photo and you really like the way you look, crop the others out of the photo so that you are the only person in the picture. Finally, don’t show too much skin in the photo. You don’t want to give other singles the wrong impression of yourself.

If you are going to be successful when it comes to dating on an over 50 dating site, your profile means everything. When you include the information above and you are honest, you will be very pleased with the results. Be yourself, be honest, and be natural. It is the best way to find someone who could end up being the person of your dreams.

When you sign up for an over 50 dating sites, you should understand that your profile is going to be the first impression of you that other singles get. Most people know that first impressions are very important, therefore, you should keep this in mind when you are creating your online profile. The most successful profile will be honest, informative, and it will sound like you. As long as you create a great profile, you will have an excellent chance of meeting the person of your dreams.

Tips for Dating Over 50

Dating can be challenging at any age but for singles over 50, it can be a daunting experience. The internet has changed many of the long-accepted rules about meeting people. But whether you are young or old, and whether you meet in person or on the web dating should be about mutual respect. Also, dating at any age should be fun!

Here are some tips and advice for 50+ dating:

The first tip is to stop putting so much emphasis on how you look. People come in all shapes, and sizes and very few have the body of a model on television. This is real life and no one, no matter their age, is perfect. The media and other outlets project certain body types and unrealistic standards. We often fall prey to believing we don’t match up.

 

People over 50 have a lot of life experience, and hopefully, you know that looks fade and change. It is a person’s attitude and character that matter the most. Substance and character are what keeps someone interested beyond the initial attraction. Try to have the same outlook when you are meeting other people because most of us are insecure about our looks. It takes a time to get to know the person behind the looks.

 

Listening is a skill that we need to build relationships. Most of us are adept at talking about ourselves or our favorite things. But a date needs to give and take. You need to let the other person know that you are interested in getting to know them and to hear what they have to say, as well. Listening is a talent that will help relationships last for a long time.

 

One taboo subject on the first date is money. There is no place in the first few meetings to discuss your salary or their career pay. You don’t need to get to know someone just as a reflection of their bank statement. While financial goals are important, that is a subject to be saved for when you know each other much better.

 

It is best to allow dates and to get to know someone to go naturally. It is much easier to let things happen organically. When we force issues, they don’t usually work out. Just take it slow and enjoy all the new things about the other person. Also, don’t pressure the other person about the next time to talk or go out. Just breathe and relax.

 

Past relationships should be left in the past. You don’t want to project past issues onto a new friend. We all carry baggage from the past, but try to resolve these matters on your own before you begin dating again. Don’t make a new person pay for wrongs done by someone else. Don’t go into a new relationship waiting to be hurt or waiting for the other person to make a mistake. They will make errors but they are not fatal, and they don’t always mean it’s a repeat of the past.

 

Dating for 50+, is exciting, frightening and challenging. Age doesn’t have anything to do with it, though. A great date will send you home singing and laughing, just as if you were a teenager. You can learn to love and enjoy the other person, no matter your age. And who knows? You might just find that forever love!
