How To Date Online For Seniors
By David Chastain
Merely registering as a member on online dating sites does not guarantee that you get the perfect match. As a senior trying out his or her chances in online dating services, you should clearly state what you are looking for in a mate. Otherwise, how would the site give you its prospective matches?
Dating online with success is not hard if you remember some tips to guide you through the process. For example, you may be a member of a top senior dating site, but what if you do not check your email regularly? For all you know, someone is interested in meeting you.
And what about your online profile? Does it show your best foot forward? Or does your profile look like a warning signal for others to stay away from you?
Follow these tips in making a good profile, and your chances to get a date will increase.
1. State what your objectives are
In your profile, put something in the headline that will shout to everyone what you really are and why do people need to check you out. Be informative and catchy. Tell something about you and your objectives in a very appealing and enticing tone. An ordinary profile might not carry it, but when finding a love mate, you can use a metaphor as a "sales" tool. For example, you might want to use as headline "Mature gentleman ripe for picking" than "Decrepit old man wanting to get hitched."
2. Accentuate the positive and specific, not the negative and general
You do want a mate, that's why you applied as a member of an online site, isn't it? So, like your job resume, you should focus on your positive side. Tell your good points that you could bring into a relationship. Shout to the world why they should bother reading your profile and hopefully, make communication with you. For example, instead of merely describing yourself as just "fun-loving," why not tell something that would really show your fun-loving side? You could say instead that you "love to watch movies every weekend and going to a nice jazz bar in town." Doesn't that sound exciting?
3. Make the letter personalized
When writing someone you think is a potential match, avoid letter-like introductions. Instead be casual and personal in your note. You can take someone's eyes by responding directly to something he or she said in his or her profile.
Success in getting an online match is easy with these tips.
