If you’ve been avoiding online dating because you think it’s only for 20-somethings, think again! According to mature dating sites, their fastest growing segment are individuals above 50, meaning there are literally millions of men out there who are above 50. It’s undeniable that online dating is now the new hot spot for boomers as well as older adults. As a woman above 40, you sure have more than a chance to find your dream man. The following are five helpful tips for you: 1. Be in charge.
Interesting Research on Services – Things You Probably Never Knew
Not that you should be bossy though. But you need to be on top of the entire experience. Online dating comes with tons of possibilities, and it’s still a relatively new way of meeting new people. Make some decisions and create some personal guidelines regarding how you want it to be part of your life. How many hours each day, for example, should you devote to it? What can you do to ensure that you meet people while keeping your emotional and physical well-being intact? What can you do to be more successful at dating? When you consider things like these upfront, you’ll have more control over your online dating pursuits, including where they will eventually lead to.
Discovering The Truth About Dates
2. Be a standout. With age, the women-to-men ratio increases further. Invest in pictures that make you shine. Don’t hesitate to let a pro take them. As well, your profile has to be unique and addressed specifically to men. It must scream how special you are, revealing hints of your personality and why they would be interested. Writing “Hi!” on the subject line won’t work, unless you plan to wait in line or deleted. A little flirting won’t hurt and works a lot of magic. 3. Don’t lie. Among the most common complaints men make is that women post pictures that are, shall we say, out of date. That’s a big no-no. Keep your photos pretty… and current. Otherwise, it’s insincere and a complete waste of time. You should also be clear about what you want. For those in the range of 40, 50, and above, there’s an entire spectrum of potential partners men and women would like to hook up with. Say it out there, whether you want a husband or a casual date. There’s no need to scream it, but let it be subtly obvious in your profile. 4. Have a makeover. When did you last change something about your look? How you apply your makeup or style your hair? The last time you shopped for clothes? This is something you’d do for a man as for yourself. A woman who is confident and healthy is a big turn on for any man. 5. Think in the now. Finally, whoever you are today is no longer the one you were yesterday. It may be time to go over your checklists. Update the list of characteristics of your “ideal man.” Revise your “truths” about dating and men in general. Whether you do this alone, with a friend or coach, it doesn’t matter. Just make sure you do it.
