6 Worst Online Dating Profile Mistakes Women Over 40 Commit


When you’re over 40, it’s difficult to meet a great man in real life. You believe online dating is your last hope, but all you face is a complete failure. Blatant men, con men, married men and guys who are younger than you are all trying to fool you, bring you down and make you think that you will never meet your soulmate because of your age. Age and love have nothing in common. Even women who are over 60s deserve to love and be loved.

When it comes to online dating, your profile plays a crucial role. If you commit these online dating profile mistakes that most women over 40 are guilty of, you will less likely attract the right man. No offence, gone are the days when you could sit and wait for your Mr.Right. You have no time for playing games. Change and update your dating profile today to let serious men find you faster. Here’s a list of the worst online dating profile mistakes women over 40 commit:

1. Superwoman

Typically, women over 40 feel confident, accomplished and seemingly happy. They believe they are able to do everything alone and a man is just an addition to their lives. They’re sure of themselves and their capabilities. They have houses, cars and money. They consider themselves perfect and ignore those who criticize them. If you are one of them, chances are your profile screams “I’m a perfect woman who doesn’t need a man.” When crafting your dating profile, make sure you doesn’t sound like an ideal woman. Men are afraid of arrogant women, and only those who are looking for a hookup will send you a message.

2. Banality

You love reading, partying, traveling, cooking or whatever. Most of us love it. Your dating profile should say something new and unusual about you. It should stand out from the crowd. Avoid using banal phrases like, “I want to find my dream man” or “Relationship is my top priority.” Once a man sees them, he’ll more likely move to the next profile. No one believes in banality these days, especially men over 50.

3. Moaning

Even if you cry every night because you’re lonely and unsuccessful, your potential date shouldn’t know about it. Don’t moan about your past relationships, financial problems, failures, mistakes and overall miserable life. Otherwise, he may think that you will be moaning and crying all night long instead of having fun, and moves on to the next profile. With a positive profile, you’re one step closer to finding your dream man.

4. Blaming

“I had my first serious relationship in college, I loved him but he cheated on me and I had spent 20 years trying to make other men’s lives miserable. Now that I realized my mistake, I feel guilty and truly want to find my love and build a long-term relationship.” It sounds touching, but the woman who wrote this (she’s 52) made another mistake. She revealed her guilt but the truth is no one needs it. Men don’t care about your past mistakes and guilt. They want to know your positive present and a few plans for the future and that’s it.

5. Bragging

Perhaps you’re a successful leader, a mom of 6 or a foodie junkie. You’re perfect in bed and cook the most delicious meals in the world. You’ve visited many places around the world and know many different languages. You know how to win a man’s heart and become the best wife. It’s really great. But, ladies over 40, bragging doesn’t work when it comes to online dating. Stay realistic, honest and modest. This way, your prospective match will appreciate your profile.

6. Devotion

Telling something like, “I’m ready to do anything to be with my dream man” or worse, “I don’t need anyone in my life, except my future partner,” is a big no-no. Most men are afraid of a woman with high expectations and devotion. Building a relationship when you’re not 20 anymore requires step-by-step actions. Don’t leap into a new relationship at once and don’t promise the moon.
