6 Ways to Teach You How to Avoid the Jerk After 40

Mature Dating

Dating at a later age often makes people feel like it is going to end up fruitless. In a sea of people who can’t seem to get over themselves or their baggage, how can you find a gem of a partner? There definitely are ways and you shouldn’t give up on mature dating. There are many mature dating sites out there made specifically to help out those who are trying to get back into the senior dating game.

  1. Your profile speaks volumes about who you are and what you are looking for. Make sure to give a good description of yourself without putting in too many details. Your true self can get lost among a list of your qualities. Mature dating sites are filled with profiles saying they are all “fun”. You could use an adjective (don’t) or you could explain why you are fun (do).

  2. Be honest on your profile and in your messages. People in the mature dating world do want honesty, but they don’t want to read your life story off of your profile. You want to show who you truly are, whether on a date or simply talking over text, you don’t want to build a relationship off of lies.

  3. Dress appropriately. This goes for both your profile picture and when going on a date. You don’t want to post a ton of pictures in something you would never wear in your daily life, the same goes for when you are on a date. It’s okay to dress up but you don’t have to change who you are.

  4. Be firm without being cruel or overbearing. It is important to create a balance between the two of you. You don’t have to automatically agree to whatever the other person says just because you don’t want them to leave. You can have your own opinion and they can have theirs, it takes a good equality to even out a relationship.

  5. It takes balance and honesty to find a match. You both have had good and bad experiences with dating, but you don’t want to only focus on that. Focus on what the two of you can have, not what you did have.

  6. Stay positive! You will find someone in the senior dating world. There are plenty of people looking for a relationship later on in life and there is hope, never forget that. If you think since you are older that means you’re out of the dating game, think again, because the person you’re looking for is in the same boat as you. Always stay positive, you will find the person you’re meant to be with.
