Dating mature singles can be extremely fun if you just want to meet new people and don’t have enormous expectations. Keep in mind that you can always find meaning and joy in your life, so don’t be obsessed with finding a person who will magically turn it into a fairy tale.
With that said, dating senior ladies is pretty simple, if you know how to play by the rules. If you are new in the online dating world, however, here are some tips which should help you improve your wooing skills.
Your profile picture should be up to date
Yes, you have wrinkles and grey hair, and that is perfectly okay. You should be confident about your look, instead of posting an old photo. It is okay if you want to show other users how you looked like twenty-something years ago, but don’t forget to label the photo with the year. Also, don’t make it your profile picture. Namely, the profile pic should be a close-up of your face (sunglasses are a no-no!).
Don’t lie and be polite
We understand that you may want to turn back the clock, but let’s face it, you are not a young man with a six-pack anymore. Be honest about your age and body build, because women you lie to will reject you as soon as you have met them in person. Don’t forget to act like a perfect gentleman, even though no one knows you privately. So, also if a lady you are not interested in contacts you at some point, tell her politely that you don’t think you are a good match.
Conversation is a two-way street
When you finally go out on a real date, tell her something about yourself. We don’t mean you should share details of your last health exam, but letting her know what your interests and hobbies are is a good start. On the other hand, don’t forget to ask her about her life. Otherwise, it will seem like you don’t care who she is at all. At the end of an evening, reach for the check. Even if she offers to split the bill, tell her with a smile that you wish to pay. In case she insists, you can always say that she can pay next time you go out.
