How to Attract a Man in Your 50s

When it comes to the world of online dating, men are attracted to what they see, whether that be a photo or something they can read.

To attract a man in your 50s with mature dating, you need to play on this fact and play to your strengths.

Your profile photo

This is the most powerful tool you have to attract a man in your 50s.

If you have a recent photo with you smiling and looking wonderful, this is an ideal photograph for your profile picture. If you don’t have a good recent photo, there’s no harm in dressing up and taking a selfie or asking a friend to take a photo.

Here are some tips:

  • Tilt your phone. If you are taking a selfie, angle your phone slightly up, down or to the side to create a natural perspective.
  • Your smile gives you character and makes you look friendly. Try different types of smile to find one you are comfortable with.
  • Stay away from harsh lighting. Try and get a photo on an overcast day if outdoors or with dim lighting when indoors.

A sweet profile photo will have men falling over you to get in touch. Attracting a man in your 50s is always easier when you show yourself off.

Your biography

This is the second most powerful tool to attract a man in your 50s and especially if you are looking for love and companionship.

Your profile biography is your only opportunity to sell yourself in your own words. Men don’t want a life story, but they do want to know what makes you tick. Your personality and interests are a big deal to men looking for love.

Here are some tips:

  • Start with your interests. Love walking? Cycling? Meals out? Sunny holidays? Knitting? Start your bio with your interests to create an instant connection.
  • Say what you’re looking for. Looking for a man to take care of you? Looking for a man to grow old with? Say so, so that men know what to expect.
  • Don’t say anything that’s negative. “Recently divorced” is the most common negative thing women say. “Single” is a better choice. Write as if you are providing a glowing reference for someone else.

Chatting online

Chatting online with a man for the first time can be daunting, but there’s nothing more to it than writing a message, proofing it and sending it.

Here are some tips:

Don’t flirt (at first)

Men are suckers for flirting, but you don’t want to give off the wrong impression. We recommend avoiding flirting for the first 2 or 3 chat sessions until you get to know them. This will ensure you don’t tease them.

Don’t create a false impression

Answer questions honestly and avoid using Google to look up conversation starters. For example, if a man says he loves jazz, don’t search on Google for ‘jazz artists and facts’ so you can start a conversation. This will only give a false impression.

Discuss what you want

The best way to attract a man in your 50s is to let them know what you want right off the bat. Do you want someone to have fun with? Go on holidays with? Love and grow old with? Discuss what you want so you get a like-for-like match.
