Some Woman Over 50 Dating Profile Examples

There’s never been a better time to be dating as a senior woman. You’re dynamic and you know what you’re looking for, and as more and more of us discover online dating – a whopping 36% of British singles over 50 in fact – it’s never been easier to meet someone new. Now’s the perfect time to create a profile and begin your search for someone fun.

Setting up your profile can be a speedy and smooth process – no stress needed. There are three key steps to creating a profile, and each will make it easier for you to find that special someone:

  1. Enter your interests and personal search criteria
  2. Create your personal description
  3. Upload some photos

Your Interests and Search Criteria

Entering your personal interests and search criteria will help us to recommend singles that we think might be just your cup of tea. Let us know your main criteria in a partner – male or female, religious or not, football-mad or a devoted gardener – and we’ll show you profiles of committed singles that match these preferences. Alternatively, if you’d prefer, you can also use our criteria search tool directly to find your ideal partner in crime.

Your Personal Description

Your personal description is a little like the blurb on the back of your favourite book: it’s there to catch the interest of the reader and to let them know a little of what to expect. Generally, these will only be a few lines to a paragraph long and will showcase your passions and personality.

Here’s what we’d recommend you include in your personal description:

  • Your interests – What are your favourite things to do or to watch? How do you imagine yourself spending quality time with someone special?
  • A little about yourself – This can help interested singles to know how to break the ice and start a conversation with you. Maybe you want to mention your hobbies, your work or your family.
  • An ice-breaker, joke or prompt – These can all help to get the conversation flowing. An ice-breaker could just be your best pun, while a strong prompt might be something like “message me your ideal first date plans!”.

Let’s say you’re setting up your woman over 50 dating profile. Examples of what you might include in your personal description are:

“Hi there! I’m Sharon. I’m a retired nurse and a mum of three who’ve all flown the nest, meaning I’ve got plenty of time to kick back and enjoy a nice glass of wine (or three). I live near the sea and love to spend time unwinding on the beach with a good book. I’m also a passionate traveller and would love to meet a man who’ll have his passport at the ready! My next trip will be a cruise of the Caribbean – I’m counting down the minutes already.”

“I’m Liz, a born and bred Yorkshire woman. I’m usually found in the hills, so I’m looking for a hiking buddy to join me on my adventures. Outdoors is my favourite place to be, generally accompanied by my dog Baxter. Message me if you’re up for a walk and a good laugh, because mountains aren’t just funny, they’re hill-areas!”

“I’m Amira, and I’m a die-hard footie fan. When I’m not screaming at the telly or agonising over penalties, I’m generally looking after my gorgeous grandchildren. I’m also a major bookworm and always ready to talk your ear off about the latest Hilary Mantel novel. You should message me if you’re well aware that the Red Devils are the greatest team on the planet (or if you disagree and just fancy a row!).”

Your Profile Photos

They say a picture is worth a thousand words, so picking the right snap to introduce yourself will make all the difference.

We’d recommend uploading a couple of photos when you’re setting up your profile. Choose which image you would like to be your main profile photo – you can always change or update this over time if you’d like to do so.

There are a few key things to bear in mind when selecting your photos:

  • Avoid blurriness – Blurry pictures won’t show your best side, so opt for snaps that are fully in focus and are large enough files that they won’t get all pixelated when they’re shared on screen.
  • Up to date – Recent pictures are always best. The wonderful you now is the person our singles want to get to know, so leave the pictures from a decade ago at the back of the drawer.
  • Just of you – It can be tempting to opt for crowd shots because often our favourite photos show us surrounded by people we love. The problem with this is that it can be hard for people discovering your profile for the first time to know who’s who. For that reason, it’s best to revel in the limelight with photos that keep you centre-stage.
  • Up close and personal – Include at least one picture which clearly shows your face, preferably with your loveliest smile on display.

Although we’ve included some woman over 50 dating profile examples here, the most important thing to bear in mind when you’re getting your dating profile up and running is to be yourself. Be honest about your passions, and don’t feel pressured to pretend to be someone you’re not – the right person will appreciate you just as you are.
