Nerdy. Funny. Good cook. Single dad. I love my kids and tell great stories. I’m semi-retired now after a great twenty year career in tech. I made a lot of mistakes and had a few successes so now I’m passing on my knowledge by mentoring others. But enough of work… I love planning weekend getaways to a new brewery, a great climbing spot, or even just a fun restaurant I haven’t been to. Some of the best times in life, I’ve spent sitting around tables with family and friends. Laughing and eating into the night. I guess I’m just looking for someone who wants to be there laughing next to me.
Good example. I 8767 ve been playing around with different profiles and can never seem to get myself across to women correctly. Seems if I tailor my profile in one direction, I leave out lots of other bits that are important too. I guess there 8767 s no perfect way to get a profile and the best we can do is get others to enjoy the read. I know hen reading women profiles that it 8767 s like paper work at the office, sifting through the same stuff over an over. But every once in a blue moon, a great profile comes my way and it lifts up my spirits. Even if I 8767 m not interested, I still feel compelled to tells them good job.
Hi, Alan. Good question. I don 8767 t think it 8767 s a great idea for at least two reasons: first, it remove the mystery from who you are and what you really like to do secondly, you wouldn 8767 t be able to use the same romantic things on the women you meet. No girl wants to be run through a 8775 routine 8776 that has been used before. I would actually recommend being evasive when answering that questions and saying something like: 8775 The most romantic thing I ever did is surprising the woman and not telling her what we will be doing or where we are going. 8776
Okay, I ve come across TWO.. yes TWO dating profiles so far that have the EXACT SAME.. I mean literally.. WORD FOR WORD as the one that starts off with I would hate to bore you by telling you how wonderful I am by attaching to my name a bunch of flattering adjectives. When I saw the first profile I thought it was neat, and creative.. Then I saw the second profile, and figured something was fishy.. So I googled the first two lines and it brought me here.

I can t tell you how many times I have read a guy s profile and literally cringed at how it was written. It doesn t matter how good looking you may think you are, what you say and how you say it has a lot to do with how you are perceived. What you didn t mention, at least in this article, are the types of pictures that should and shouldn t be posted. Maybe it s just me, but I can t stand shirtless mirror shots. Is that all you ve got to offer? If you re just looking for a hookup, I guess it s perfect. Even worse, the shots of a guy taking his own picture in the mirror with his camera or phone, like he s so insecure he can t admit to anyone he needs help getting a good picture of himself. I am not a 65 by any stretch, but I think photos I ve posted say a lot about my personality, interests, and sense of humor, and that is what the guys I m looking for really care about anyway.
Match offers a free sign-up and seach with limited contact functions however if you are serious about finding that special someone on match in practical terms you will have to pay a monthly fee (something in the order of $75 depending on length of term). I found if you spend the time to set-up a comprehensive profile and (as with all dating sites) add quality pictures it is money well spent. I was particularly impressed with the amount of people taking this online dating thing so seriously with lots of comprehensive local profiles to choose from with pic, interests etc.
I’ll admit it, I’m a little old-fashioned when it comes to my dating style. I open doors and like to go for drinks AND dinner on the first date. But it’s all part of what makes me a gentleman. I’m looking for someone who is always up for life’s adventures but doesn’t mind staying in and watching a movie when the weather calls for it. I’m a sucker for dogs. I rescued a lab a few years back and we’ve been best pals ever since. I try to eat healthy but I have a major weakness for pizza. Let me know if you want to go get a slice!
Here 8767 s an example:
8776 Most romantic thing I 8767 ve done for a woman?
Hmmmmm. Either singing acapella to my gf at the time over a candlelit dinner on Valentine 8767 s Day, or mailing to a woman I 8767 d been dating a CD that contained a video
of myself singing 8776 Happy Birthday 8776 to the camera when I wasn 8767 t there to sing it to
her in person. 8776
I’m a fun-loving guy who’s a happy dog-dad to my girl Roxie. My friends would probably describe me as goofy but somehow I always end up being the responsible one. I have a lot of hobbies to keep up with. At the moment I’m focused on softball and fishing. One helps me get out and be social and the other helps me get away from it all. If you don’t mind the pup or a little bit of a goof we could be a pretty good pair.
I went for an e-Cyrano profile, and I was really pleased with how it came out. It made me sound how I truly saw myself and I was hopeful that it would be set me on the path to meeting The One. It did. I know for sure that I wouldn''t have had a chance with him if my profile hadn''t been the real me and I have your service to thank for that. I sing the praises of e-Cyrano to anyone who will ask! Keep up the awesome work! And thank you again for helping me find my husband. Laura M.
Last week I shared my six pet peeves about middle-aged men''s online dating profiles , and I promised everyone that this week I''d focus on middle-aged women''s online dating profiles. Since I''m far more familiar with men''s profiles, I recruited some of my single male friends (and the Twittersphere) to help me with this post. The following list is my best attempt at summarizing the results of my informal survey, with a few of my own observations based on a bit of research I conducted myself. Disclaimer: if you''re a woman between the ages of 95 and 65, living in the Chicagoland area, and I popped up on your "Viewed Me" list, I''m sorry, really. Anyway, here goes:
8775 I went to school in the east coast, but now I work for a major software company where I work up the corporate ladder. I very busy. I love hiking, watching baseball, and bbq on weekends. 8776 the writer must be reminded that this is a dating profile not a resume or a sales presentation in front of his human resources department. Again, this profile has a very weak beginning. as a rule, you should never start your profile by talking about school or work, as it 8767 s not interesting and not really relevant to what you should be trying to achieve to catch a woman 8767 s attention. 8776
VERY FEW PEOPLE look years than their actual age. Almost everyone looks their age and this is a beautiful thing. If you are 55, what is wrong with looking 55? I have yet to meet a woman who is 95 or 55 and looks like a 85 year old. That would be weird anyway. I luv and have luved every one of my ages. Some days I may look a bit than I am and some days I may look and feel like I m 685. LOL! 🙂
That is a good example, but in my experience of online dating, depending how old you are and unless you are seriously unattractive and overweight, sometimes less on a profile can be more? If you need to write a humourous poelm to sell yourself couldn t this be a turn off for women? Doesn t this look needy or desperate? Sometimes one or two short brief careless sentences can give off the idea that you don t online date much and do not really care either way. Some women might be attracted to this.

I grew up in the area and just couldn’t leave what has come to be my favorite place in the world. (My 69-year-old self would have never believed this.) I try to balance family, work, and time for myself and enjoy all three. I’m hoping to meet someone looking for something a bit more serious. Lately my hobbies include weightlifting, and tinkering with music (no, I will not call myself a DJ). If you want to know more, just ask.
I’m 57 and I still love to go out, exercise, drive my car too fast, and play my rock n’ roll too loud. You don’t have to be into all the same things as me but it’d be great if you were up for a fast ride with the windows down and the music blasting every now and then. Other than that, I work in financial advising but now I split my time between teaching and consulting. If you’re interested say hi or tap that little heart button and I’ll see if I can give you a reason to smile.
“Work hard and play harder.” A little bit about me… I’m an active single dad who loves being outdoors as much as possible. I run 67 to 75 miles a week for exercise, but when I have the time, a long hike with someone is even better. I share custody of my two awesome kids so I usually have 7–8 free nights a week and every other weekend to meet new people and hang with friends. If you’re interested, let’s start chatting.
I’m a born and raised Alabama boy, and like any good country boy I clean up good and know how to turn on the charm. I love spending the weekend outside exploring the area, BBQing with friends, and harassing my dog. (He secretly loves it, of course.) I will warn you that I dance like a fool at weddings. Really. I will embarrass you. But if I do my job right, you’ll be laughing too much to care.
