In other words: they’d be looking for serious relationships.

A profile geared towards finding a long term partner will read differently from one geared towards casual encounters or simply friendship.

If you know what you're looking for it's best to say it in your profile, so that you get the right kind of attention.

Talk about the things you like, and avoid talking about the things you don't like unless they are really important to you, and would prevent you connecting with someone.

Try to make yourself interesting, so that you stand out from the crowd.

Your profile isn't set in stone – it's a good idea to review it every so often and make changes if you spot areas for improvement.

Are you among the singles over 60 who feel that you may not fit into today's dating scene?

That doesn't mean you have to come across as wacky or crazy, but if you an make your profile engaging or witty, you're more likely to get a good response.

Honesty is important, as you can't expect a relationship based on misleading someone to go anywhere, but that doesn't mean you have to highlight every flaw.

Just like any other kind of dating, you need to think of an activity that will make the experience a more memorable one.
