Never leave it open-ended. The great thing about having plenty of life experience is you know what you want without even having to put it into words.

Wear whatever makes you feel comfortable.
If you want to wear those sweater vests, go for it.

Never spend more than a few minutes talking about your family. Never talk about your health problems or your impending surgery.

I can't afford to see you. And Skype relationships are pretty two-dimensional. Men who mentioned sexual details in their profiles.
Navigating the World of Online Dating After 50
Yes, we get that sex is important, even in middle age. But this is just too much information! Men who were grammatically challenged. Either I'm not worth a coherent sentence or you are unable to compose one. My first online date was at a nearby bar.

It was good for the ego at first, but turned out not to be a lasting relationship. Note to self: Just because a man doesn't talk about himself all the time doesn't mean he's right for you.
In addition to online dating, I've tried the novel approach of meeting men in person -- at a speed dating event. But it's just different for the boomer set. We're not kids anymore. We don't really do the "hang out, hook up" thing very well.
