Now that online dating is no longer taboo and senior women are joining one or more of the thousands of sites available to find the future Mr. Right, the next task becomes creating a stellar online profile. Your online profile is a delicate dance between creativity, honesty and couth.

So without posting a naked photo of yourself swimming in hundred dollar bills, how do you catch the attention of potential suitors? That’s easy, be yourself and don’t overshare.

Here are some helpful tips to create an eye-catching online profile for senior women.


If you’re 60, don’t pretend that you’re 40. You most likely have grown kids and maybe you’re even a grandma. Why try to hide who you really are?

With age comes wisdom, self-confidence and natural beauty. Don’t post a 20-year-old photo of yourself on your profile. Post a picture from the last year or so and let men know exactly who you are.

Don’t overshare.

You may be a widow, divorcee or just haven’t yet met “The One.” Either way, a potential mate doesn’t need to know the nitty-gritty of why you’re on a dating site — at least not at first.

He just needs to know you’re a classy broad looking to start the next phase of your life and would like a dapper gentleman on your arm for the duration.


When you’re filling out your online profile, don’t feel compelled to stick with cookie-cutter answers. You didn’t spend 20 years as a housewife. You were CEO of the household where responsibilities included the rearing of three children, cooking gourmet meals, entertaining house guests and running a tight ship.

As you’re enjoying your senior years and dipping your toes into the choppy world of online dating, remember to stay honest, don’t overshare and be creative. You never know who will be browsing your profile.
