Last week I read a piece written by a dating coach for the over-50 set.
While I agreed with most of her advice, I bristled as she urged women to "leave sex out of your profile" because "it gives men the wrong impression and encourages those you aren't interested in." My guess is that 99.9% of dating coaches would preach the same thing: AND you will attract men who are incapable of seeing women as anything more than penis receptacles.
This kind of reductionist thinking is horribly unfair to both sexes and, IMHO, is one reason men and women don't trust each other.
Since I've become intentionally sexually transparent in my dating profile, I haven't met any douchebags. Men like my profile because they know where they stand. My marriage ended for many reasons, but sexual incompatibility was at the top of the list. If you want to write a sexually transparent profile, go for it.It can intervene if it sees worrying trends or serious matters of concern. A link to our customer service arrangements is provided here.So you're a single midlife woman and you care about sex? And no, I'm not just talking about women who are looking for casual fun, although that's a perfectly acceptable choice.Where I do agree with dating coaches is on the importance of marketing.You have one shot -- a fleeting shot, given the cyber candy store otherwise known as online dating -- to make yourself stand out.
