Relocating for the right person is definitely an option. ” ******************************* This is one great dating profile.It consists a number of thought provoking statements right from the beginning that show a woman’s great personality and sense of humor.But what about the 11 million seniors who are leading single lives?According to researchers, many older singles are not doing so well. We worry about maintaining social connections if we lose mobility.Facebook is a great place to chat, keep up with friends’ activities and even play games with them, like the popular game Word with Friends.Some websites offer forums and chat rooms that encourage users to interact with others.(This woman is voicing her opinion and shows her personality early on. )) You: Honest, mature, gentleman, emotionally, mentally, financially secure (“financially secure” is a bad move in a dating profile because it’s an immediate red flag to a guy that he might be dealing with a materialistic woman.) Knows how to treat a lady, ready for a long term relationship (this would sound a bit too eager or even desperate to most guys. I live on the East Coast and travel to West every week for work. (This would make the reader believe that she is not looking for anyone special, but just someone to kill time with and subdue her loneliness).First, meet a guy, then decide what you want out of him). I am looking to meet someone in the this area and see what happens! 🙂 (good, funny, statement that shows personality and sense of humor, she should have used more of this kind of words throughout her profile).
(This first sentence says nothing eye-catching about the woman and is very bland, and boring). (still, nothing thought provoking or attractive) I am very spontaneous and I love the outdoors, watching movies, dancing, and traveling. (Finally something somewhat interesting that she says about herself).Ask anyone who’s been in an unhappy, non-communicative marriage.Eric Klinenberg, the author of “Going Solo,” a book about living alone, looks at the emergence of the one-person household as an increasingly preferred living choice.(Another cliché statement that is being used by thousands of other women) A great date can be staying at home with a movie and popcorn, or a night on the town.
