If you want to attract good men, you need a nicely written profile - that’s where the communication starts.
Be sure to write positive things in your profile. For example, rather than saying you don't like liars, say that what you'd love in a partner is honesty. And whilst the topic of honesty, be honest in your profile. You want to find someone who’s attracted to you after all, not a fake alter ego.
Your profile shouldn’t be too long, but long enough that people get a feel for who you are. Don’t write cliché, empty statements, but rather let your personality come out.
Men over 40 and men over 50 have slightly different preferences than men in their 20s and 30s, just like someone looking for casual dating is different from someone looking for a serious relationship, so bear that in mind when writing.
When you email someone for the first time, mention one thing you liked in their profile so they see you read it. Keep it short and sweet as well, because no one wants to read a whole essay at first. They just want a little taster of who you are.
