Writing my profile

After an evening of reading profiles some that made me laugh and some that made me cry I decided to update my own profile.

Now, what to say.

Intelligent well-rounded woman seeks a man with similar qualities.

Err… No – well I can be intelligent if the subject interests me, and I am definitely a well-rounded woman. A bit too round at the moment. But, nothing that a few weeks eating salads and going swimming would not help!

Now, what can I write that would be suitable for a mature dating site, that is not going to sound boring.  I think the best thing to do is just to be honest, and try to write from the heart. So many profiles do not do people justice. I have always been a sales person, which helps because writing a profile is another way of selling yourself.

Right. Let’s try again.

I am an honest, caring, sensitive woman who loves to laugh, and have deep meaningful conversations on just about any subject. I am a true Aquarian, which makes me slightly different from other women because I am a woman who enjoys space and does not want to be joined at the hip with someone 24/7

Now how will people read into that? Will they think I am a lunatic, but it is all true so I will leave it.

What am I looking for in a man?

I have joined the site in the hope of finding a man who is genuine, intelligent, loyal and caring, with a good sense of humour. Beauty is only skin-deep; it is what’s on the inside that counts. I am 5ft 8 inches tall, which is quite tall for a lady, and would ideally like someone taller than myself.

I hope that doesn’t make me sound shallow, but once again it is true, and surely it is better to let people know what I am looking for, rather than embarrass them later. I am tall!

I love cosy nights in with a lovely home cooked meal, nights out at the cinema, and lazy Sunday pub lunches. It is the company that counts not the location, or the expense, just two people who enjoy being with each other with similar qualities, hopes and dreams.

Hmm…  I like that bit, it hopefully shows I am not a gold digger, and I am looking for someone that likes to chat about anything and everything.

I have put the past firmly behind me now, and I am looking for someone who has done the same. Yes, we cannot get to our age without some sort of baggage, but with respect, if you are still dragging yours behind you then you are not the man for me!

I hope that does not sound too harsh, but being honest when writing a profile is a must, and after dates where men have spent the evening talking about their ex partners, believe me it is no fun.

Right.  I think that is my profile done and dusted I am happy with it, so let’s get it on site and see if it brings the results I am looking for !
