How to write good online dating profile
Baby boomers today are redefining life after 60 and setting an example for future generations.
We are pursuing our passions, exploring the world and looking for new relationships of all kinds.
When you are preparing to fill out your profile, think of it as an application.
You want to make sure you talk yourself up so that people will be interested in getting to know more about you, but in an honest (and humble) way.
You might think people only want to see what you look like when they look at your profile picture; however, you’d be surprised to know that if you have a picture where you are something—like parasailing, hiking, meditating, traveling, riding horses—you’ll get more responses.
Your friends can point out your best qualities, even if you don’t recognize them. People want to see how they can be part of your life, so when you talk about enjoying solo hobbies—like reading, knitting, or writing—people will assume you aren’t social.
Even if you do enjoy walking on the beach or watching the sunset while sipping wine on the rooftop… You can be honest about yourself by including these activities, but include activities like flying a kite, hiking, or playing tennis.
Or, you could even come up with a name for your mystery man or woman and keep them in your mind when you write your profile.
During this phase, it’s also important to give your expectations a reality check.
