Online Dating Profile Tips to Find Love Over 40

Online Dating Profile Tips

There’s a lot more to a winning online profile then you think. The written material needs to be conversational, upbeat and fun to read. Talk about what you do want in a partner and not what you don’t want. Keep it on the shorter side around 250-300 words. Be sure to include a vivid description of yourself and how you spend your time.

Don’t talk about all the things every woman says like walking on the beach, going to the movies, dining out, working out, or snuggling in front of a fire. That’s so common everyone says that! Think about what you’d do on a rainy Sunday afternoon or what things in life make you smile. Don’t be afraid to be an individual!

You don’t have much time to catch a man’s eye so put anything you think a man would find interesting first. Activities like professional sports, hiking, music, an interest in history, etc. will catch his attention.

Then take time to describe your partner. Think about who is he as a person. What does he like to do? How much energy does he have? Does he prefer indoor or outdoor activities, socializing and a healthy lifestyle? Is he kind, does he have a sense of humor, and will he be a supportive partner?

Give your profile some thought because it helps a man identify with you and want to connect or see that you’re not a match and opt out. These online dating profile tips make a big difference to help you enjoy more activity.
