Online Dating Advice For Seniors. Tips For The Over 50s And Mature Singles
In this video we’re going to go over some online dating tips for seniors.
So pour yourself some fresh coffee, sit back, and watch this video at least once. You may want to take some notes, if it helps.
If you’re returning to the dating scene after a long absence you may be a little unsure of what to do.
Perhaps you’re not feeling as confident as you once were, so listen to these hints and tips, let’s see if we can put your mind at rest.
Make Your Profile Stand Out.
Your dating profile is like a resumé and just as your resumé is designed to get you the interviews, not the job itself, so your dating site profile is meant to inspire interest, not generate immediate marriage proposals.
Make sure you’ve corrected any spelling and grammatical errors.
List the positive aspects of your character, and don’t refer to your ex partners.
Write enough to generate interest.
Two or three paragraphs are plenty. Smile at the Camera.
It’s really important to have at least one good photo on your profile.
Your photo is the first thing any other member will see, so it needs to be clear and you need to look your best.
Spend a little time in getting this right as it will be time well spent:
For the main photo use a picture that shows your smiling face.
For your second photo you could choose one of you at home or outside.
For your third one you could use a holiday photo.
People form instant impressions from photos, so think about what impression you want to make.
You could show yourself as flirtatious, romantic, thoughtful, playful, etc.
If you were at a party and someone spoke to you, you wouldn’t ignore them would you?
Similarly, adopt the habit of replying to messages, even if the person who sent them is of no interest to you.
Sending a reply, even if it’s to say that you don’t feel you have anything in common with that person, is just good manners.
Besides, you may find that once you start exchanging messages your first impression of that person may have been inaccurate, and you eventually do find something of mutual interest.
Take it nice and slow.
Some folks who join dating sites feel like kids in a candy store.
They see all the people eager to make contact, and they waste no time in letting everyone know their email address and phone number, but we advise against this.
Take it nice and slow, and build up a rapport with the person first.
Get to know them online by using the messaging on the site, and only reveal your details when you feel ready to do so.
Protecting your privacy by holding back on revealing your personal contact details will prevent any contact from anyone you might meet online who doesn’t get the message that you’re not interested.
Feeling like a teenager again?
When was the last time you went out on a date?
If you were married and are now divorced or widowed, it may have been quite a while, and going out on a date again after a long break from the dating scene induces feelings that you haven’t experienced since you were a teenager!
This is perfectly natural and you should embrace those feelings of excitement.
It’s meant to be fun so enjoy the ride!
