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.
I guarantee you’ll see the immediate payoff in the quality of men you attract. Here are some statements I see every day in women’s profiles: “I’ve waited so long for the right relationship and I hope it’s finally my time.” “I’m ready to be his everything.” “I’m looking for a relationship where we are totally devoted to each other.” While some of this may be true for you, it’s not something to put in a profile.
The man reads this as you having incredibly high expectations and reliance on your relationship for your happiness. If you wouldn’t say it on your first date, don’t write it in your profile. Women in their 40s, 50s and beyond are particularly guilty of this.
After all, you’ve probably accomplished a lot in your life without a man and are prepared to continue doing so.
Is it attracting the interest of couch potatoes, the chronically ill or the guys just looking for a little action?
If so, you are likely making at least one of the mistakes commonly made by women over 40 who are using online dating as their new discos. ) Unfortunately, all it takes is one major profile mistake to potentially sabotage any chance of finding love — or even a few good dates.
Because, let’s face it, the odds are not in our favor, ladies.
As we get older the man-to-woman ratio moves more and more lopsided.
Some statistics show that for every man over 50, there are up to 5 women; over 60, ten women, and so on. The days of sitting back and waiting for anything incoming are over.
If you want to be noticed and rise to the top, it pays to create the best possible profile and keep it polished and shiny.
Because if it doesn’t catch his interest right away, it only takes a single click for him to find one that does.
The good news is that unlike a lot of things in life, your profile is easy to change and update.
