Creating Your Over 50s Dating Profile

Creating your over 50s dating profile is an important task, as it can mean the difference between being contacted or replied to and not. There are a few different stages to creating your mature dating profile and you need to pay careful attention at each stage to attract great mature singles who you can share companionship with and maybe more!

Think of your dating profile as marketing - it's like an advert about yourself and should highlight all your great points to make a great first impression. Remember, the internet can make it hard to really get to know someone, so you have to be as descriptive as possible.

Grab Their Attention!

Writing an attention grabbing first line that is slightly unusual is a great way to attract attention and get people looking at your profile. So many profiles start with 'Hi, I'm Joe' or 'Well I'm not sure what to say about myself' and other boring lines like these - yours needs to stand out. Be confident, make people realise that you DO want to find a date and that you aren't afraid to have a little fun.

A Lifetime of Experience

Be Honest, But Don't Drag It Out
Being honest is very important in senior dating for over 50's, because by this stage of life people can't be bothered with the rubbish. Just be yourself and that is all most over 50's singles want. But at the same time, that doesn't mean that your whole life story is needed. In fact, don't really write anything about your past - just a bit about you, what you like and how you view life. Make it witty and interesting, but don't waffle on. Leave the intimate details for when you're sat sharing a bottle of wine one your date!

Take Time in Writing Your Profile
Don't feel that you have to sit and tackle your profile in an hour. Feel free to note down the questions and go away to have a little time to think about it. Even get on Google and search for some ideas how to make your profile more interesting - just make sure to stick to the truth. It may help to take more time to write about yourself as you can think about your best qualities and really sell yourself.

Over 50's Dating Should Be Fun

Keep It Light Hearted
Don't get into any gory details and try not to be gloomy in a profile as this won't attract people for dates. Over 50's dating should be fun and about enjoying life - if you're not naturally upbeat then perhaps mention that you're looking for someone who can lighten up your life a little and join you in a journey to have more fun! Always try to keep it light hearted and have fun writing it!
