Keep your profile picture up-to-date

Even if there are thousands of photos of you at red carpet events you have to make sure your profile is up to date with recent pictures. This is especially important if you've been known to have various hairstyles in the past like Brad.

Don't Lie About Your Age

In Hollywood it's common practice for actors to tell porkies about their age. However, when speaking with prospective partners it's always best to be open and honest about how old you really are - age is just a number after all!

Talk about your kids

Brad and Angelina have six kids together! For anyone on the dating scene with children, you want a partner who maybe has their own children and can relate to your situation. It's important to be upfront and honest about your children and even show them off on your profile.

Be interesting

For those like Brad and Angelina who've lived quite glamorous and interesting lives, it's important to showcase that in your profile. Both have travelled extensively, met with world leaders and done things us mere mortals could only dream. Why wouldn't you want to show that off?

Have fun

Whilst getting back into the dating world can be daunting, it can also be an opportunity to re-find yourself and what you want from your next partner. There's no need to rush into things, so take your time and have fun getting back out there and meeting new and interesting people.
