Tonight I will be brief, and want to talk with you a little about your internet dating profile for your Boomer Dating.
Two days ago I touched on THE GOAL for Millenial Daters and GenX Daters is often a bit different than it is for single Boomers who are dating. That the KIND of romantic relationship desired is often a bit different.
Whatever kind of romantic relationship you DO want, you want to be sure to weave some of that into your online dating profile.
While you may not be aiming for having any more children, because you are desiring to attract and create a romantic life partner relationship where you share your lives together, you want to convey some Home and Hearth feelings. You will want to demonstrate some domesticity in your profile.
Now, the men can safely directly in their online dating profile such direct statements like, “I want a relationship.” etc. Some of the GenX single men can even say, “I’m ready to settle down and have a family.” Women, we cannot. It sounds too loaded and desperate. Even the men, I would suggest some slightly more subtle phrasing for them, depending on their whole profile.
From your three column list, what can you include?
One of my busy successful executive business women coaching clients is an amazing cook. (Yeah, don’t you wish you were on HER Christmas Cookie baking list!) She includes a reference to being a really good cook (a little humility is a good thing, plus the gentleman must win the priviledge of her inviting him over for dinner, not suggest it asap if we positioned it immediately in sentence one of the 1st paragraph of her profiles.)
That particular attribute also nicely yin softens and balances out her super yang successful business woman energy.
The men will sometimes mention such things as, “Successful in business, have learned to take out the trash and do my own laundry….” thus side stepping an image of being a playboy or bachelor pad which is a mess. That man is an adult and also subtly conveyed domesticity and masculine provision (taking out the trash is like one of the last ways a 21st century man can demonstrate his “bring home the kill” testosterone behavior where we ladies then thank, admire, and extol the virtues of it.)
What about you? What could you include?
