It’s also an important idea to be honest and upfront about your life and status. Do you have kids? Are you divorced? Perhaps you lost your spouse and are now a widow or widower. Whatever the case, it’s important to be forthcoming about what your life is like right now. There is no need to go into detail, but keeping the fact that you have two daughters in elementary school a secret is simply asking for trouble. Many people, including biker singles who use online biker dating sites, are looking for a specific type of person and situation. Some of them may not be searching for the situation that you are in, while others will be. By being honest about your life, you can help to weed out the ones that won’t mesh with your chosen motorcycle lifestyle.
In addition to being honest about which you are, and the situation that you’re in, it’s also very important to be honest about what you’re looking for in a rider partner or bikers friend. Being anything less than honest in this regard is nothing more than a waste of time for everyone involved. If you’re looking for a girl in her mid-20’s interested in fun and riding, say so. Or if you’re interested in a mid-30’s man who has their eye on a long term relationship, state that as well.
One thing to remember is that putting ultimatums in your profile is a pretty big turn off for most people. Try to avoid using words such as never or always when describing what you are looking for. For example, try to avoid saying things like “I never would go out with someone who smokes,” or “My ideal woman would always cook me a wonderful dinner”. These type of statements, although possibly true are simply too hard to live up to. Remember, a relationship is about compromise, and give and take. Is a glorious dinner cooked for you every night more important than a real person to spend the rest of your life with?
