Often it is the singles who are over 45, 50, and 55 years old who are striving to communicate that they are good looking and live an active and engaged life so that you know they are not couch potatoes living a sedentary life.
There really are quite a variety of ways to communicate that in your profile.
So from the early days of internet dating, singles learned the tactic of clicking just about all of the “Hobbies” and “Interests” check boxes.
Kids are often lying about their age when it comes to registering on certain websites on the Internet, a study conducted by the National Consumer Council revealed.
These are the kind of things you can position in your dating profile by saying something like, “I used to really love walking in the woods trails where I grew up and want to get back to that. I’m not a moutaineer, mind you, but a hike and lunch on a Saturday afternoon would be fun.” Notice how you kind of set the parameter of expectations. Don’t expect me to be able to keep up with you quite yet for half day hikes or full weekend outdoors adventures.
You establish boundaries of the kind of hiker you are. This way you both manage expectations (Yes, one of those Marketing World terms from Product Marketing) and avoid overtly lying to your Prospective Date.
Now mind you, I have a corporate professional background in Sales and Marketing from San Francisco and Silicon Valley, the land that brought us HP, Steve Jobs, Apple, and The Woz.
This is the land which coined the phrase, “Vaperware,” for the software that SV Sales People would sell to corporate businesses before the software engineers had even designed and developed it.
