Dating over 40
Either you are occupying your time with errands that you couldn’t get to during the week, you become a couch potato and catch up on your favorite shows, or maybe you go out with your friends to catch up and talk about your lives.Does the topic of being single often come up and how you wish you could meet someone that really grabbed your attention?And once you know how it is inadvertently turning off the men who are looking for a positive, fun connection, it’s really not that difficult.Here are the top five profile mistakes common to women over 40, along with specific tips to make your profile more appealing and reflective of the best you. Your profile is your calling card, not a wish list.
I’ve seen how rewriting a profile, making it more positive, more aspirational, and less demanding can help the right guys find their way to your inbox.

Does your profile sound like someone who likes to have a good time? “I’ve tried online dating before and it didn’t work, but I’m trying it again.” Or “I’ve had a lot of challenges and hardships over the last 20 years and now I’m ready for a change.” Or “I’ve devoted my life to my children and caring for my elderly parents…now it’s my turn.” Again, this all may be true, but it’s important to let your prospective match know that spending time with you will be enjoyable…otherwise why would they want to contact you?
When was the last time you read a man’s profile and thought “Wow, he sounds like he really needs me to cheer him up…I definitely want to meet him!
After all, you’ve probably accomplished a lot in your life without a man and are prepared to continue doing so.
Be careful not to sound like there is no room in your life for a relationship.
