Men present as providers

I told Hoffman about my experience helping a relative over 60 with his online dating profile. He’d put his first photo as his professional headshot – very serious, in a three-piece suit. It was a nice photo but not a fun photo. I couldn’t understand how he thought that was what women wanted to see. But Hoffman explained, “They don’t know how to describe themselves in terms of their personality and the things they offer in a relationship…outside the context of being a provider, etc. People over 50 have worked so hard to build their life and have their stuff. There is this feeling in dating where instead of showing ‘who I am’ it’s more about ‘this is what I have.’”
