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.
Many weekends are spent training for my next marathon and singing in my church choir.” Whew!

Many women use their profile as a list of their likes and dislikes. So focus more on what you have to offer, and less on what they can do for you.
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.
It’s too generic, common and, frankly says nothing about you that’s interesting.The good news is that unlike a lot of things in life, your profile is easy to change and update.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.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.
