Have you tried online dating without success? Your profile might be one reason why you didn't get any responses. Since profile space is limited in the online dating world, you have to make sure what you put up there gives a potential date a taste of who you really are. Here are some common phrases to avoid using.
If you're doing online dating, great. Don't hide behind a friend who might have told you to try it. This statement implies that you're not sure about online dating and if the person viewing your profile doesn’t feel like responding, it's because your friend pushed you into it.
Even if a friend did suggest you try online dating, you made the decision to do it. What's more? It's a good decision. Online dating is still the best way for midlifers to meet someone new. There's nothing wrong with it, so don't use up space in a profile by trying to defend yourself for doing it.
