Most women are natural storytellers. After all, we’ve had plenty of practice with our kids and grandkids over the years! But, when it comes to writing a dating profile after 60, we often find ourselves lost for words. We may not even be able to describe the kind of man that we are looking for.

Well, for those of you who are struggling to find your words, I have good news and bad news.

The good news, according to dating coach, Lisa Copeland, is that the lack of adjectives in your senior dating profile probably won’t hurt you, since most men won’t read it anyway. The bad news is, if most single men over 60 won’t read your dating profile, how can you get their attention?


So, what is the first thing that older men look at? Your smile! It’s that simple. To help you to maximize your chances of finding someone special, I sat down with Lisa to discuss how to create a perfect dating profile, starting with the most important component – your picture.

All of the details are in the video, but, Lisa says that flattering, fun and light-hearted pictures work best. Instead of trying to describe your life in words, why not choose a picture that shows you smiling as you enjoy one of your favourite hobbies?

When it’s time to write your “about me” text, embrace the art of storytelling and paint a picture that he wants to get involved in. Tell him what you are passionate about and demonstrate through examples, rather than describing yourself.
