Instagram began to take the world by storm in 2010. When that happened, most of the app and mobile site’s population only comprised the young. Nobody thought that this highly visual platform would also sweep the young-at-heart Netizens off their feet.
Greater things happened afterward, especially when Facebook acquired Instagram in 2012 and gave it a billion-dollar boost. Much of the social-media world was soon on board: the Generation Z’ers, Gen Y’ers (otherwise called “Millennials”), Gen X’ers, Baby Boomers, and the Lucky Few alike.
Today, the great ‘Gram embraces almost everyone. It’s for people seeking platonic friends or business contacts. It’s for romantics looking for partners in love and lust. It’s even for hot-blooded adults who are into finding and meeting older women and other types of gorgeous and gracious golden girls.
Many singles use Instagram instead of dating sites. Mostly because it is free. But of course, it is easier to find a more suitable partner on dating sites, because thanks to these services, you can set the parameters for which you are looking for older women. This will save you time. But if you still want to try to find older women on Instagram, then here are some tips for you.
1. Study the popular hashtags
Hashtags are those words or space-less phrases that are preceded by the hash symbol (also called “number sign” or “pound sign”). These are widely used on social media, specifically in captions, to cross-reference posts that have the same theme.
On Instagram, the hashtag “#DatingInNewYork” or “#DatingInCalifornia” will lead to the page that contains posts about dating in the Empire State or in the Golden State, respectively. It will even show people from these American states who tell others that they’re available and ready to mix, mingle, and make merry with other ‘Grammers near them.
The best locations where you can meet older women is ultimately going to be a very personal decision for you. Think about where you are planning on spending a lot of time and then you can start searching through Instagram with those hash tags. Where you live is a natural place to start but you can also look at places you’re planning on traveling to or would consider moving to.
You don’t always want to include a location in your hashtags though. It’s a great way to get very specific results but Instagram already knows where you’re located and will automatically give you results that are more targeted toward your area. It certainly isn’t perfect but it works pretty well. This is why you get different results for every city you’re in and why you’re results look different from your friends.
Some of the popular hashtags on older women are: #HotMama, #HotMamas, #HotMomma, #HotMommas, #MatureWomen, #OlderWomen, #OlderWoman and #SugarMommy. Go to the pages of these Instagram hashtags and check out the posts of ‘Grammers, who are older women prepared to pamper you and give you the time of your life.
2. Build an attractive profile
If you haven’t joined Instagram already, sign up and start building your profile that’s undeniably attractive. Upload your most appealing photo and make your short bio totally enthralling.
If you have a personal site or a blog that showcases your thoughts, lifestyle choices, or interests, add its link to the bio. This way, you can invite ‘Grammers to your external blog or personal website and let them get to know you more.
3. Make your posts eye-catching
Much like your profile, be sure that your posts are captivating, especially to the older women you wish to meet shortly.
Being a highly visual social network, Instagram is about images and videos. Craft posts around the most enticing multimedia files that you have to attract your target audience. Post stories, too, to maximize your exposure. Instagram stories are usually live, but these disappear after 24 hours.
Just don’t get obscene and offensive, though, and follow ‘Gramming rules to the letter.
Put captions that give extra shine to your multimedia posts. You can tell followers how you feel about the image or explain to them what the video is about. Don’t forget to add your hashtags here, as well as your location.
4. Comment on ‘Grammer posts you like
Now that you have built your profile and published posts or stories navigate the Instagram universe. Here, you can add your real-world inner circle or make new friends, or both.
Browse the pages and look for people who tickle your fancy. If there are posts that you wish to “like,” click or tap on the heart icon. If there are comments on posts that you wish to “like,” click or tap on the heart icon within the comment.
To comment on a post, write in the box. Negativity shouldn’t have a place here, however, so be polite and positive!
5. Follow mature ladies you like
To connect with mature ladies in your area whom you would like to hang out with, follow them. Scroll their page and generously color the heart icons of their posts that you like. They would definitely love that!
You can follow a bunch of people on Instagram, but there’s a cap: 7,500 accounts. That’s a lot already, particularly for someone like you who’s mainly looking for potential dates in the neighborhood. As for the hourly limit, you’re allowed to make no more than 60 “follows” and “unfollows” within a 60-minute cycle.
6. Shoot direct messages
Once you’ve figured out which of the mature ladies you want to pursue, comment on their posts. Craft a well-worded, impressive text, and then add emojis for good measure. But don’t overdo it, so your comment won’t look tacky and terrible.
If you’re dying to win the hearts, minds, and attention of some of the mature ladies you’re following, send them direct messages (DMs)—and keep your fingers crossed for a favorable reply. Just don’t be spammy unless you want your account disabled or suspended.
If an apple of your ‘Grammer eye responds positively, it means you’ve started a seemingly interesting conversation with her. Congratulations are in order, then, along with a bit of advice on what to do next to keep the ball rolling.
Here goes: Dig deeper into the lady’s Instagram page and study her posts closely. See which ones arouse your curiosity. Ask questions that she’s likely comfortable answering: about her dogs, cats, boots, and whatnot. Or answer questions that she’s posing, including what color dress she should wear to work the next day.
No one will judge you for chasing and falling for older women, especially if you have sensible reasons and the best of intentions. As long as you conduct yourself properly at all times, on Instagram or elsewhere, you won’t have a problem. So, don’t be in any way discriminatory, judgmental, and offensive when wooing females born ahead of you. Despite their wit and wisdom and woman’s instinct, mature ladies are like any other human beings who deserve respect—be they ‘Grammers or not.
