Your Questions About Singles Vacations Over 40

George asks…

Singles Travel Experts? For a 2-3 Day Trip Leaving NYC?

I’m a 40-something single guy in NYC and am looking for a vacation idea over July 4th, 2010. Ideally I’d like to swim, run, get some sun. Meeting a girl isn’t my chief goal, but I’m not opposed to it either. A cruise really appeals to me, but it’s such a short amount of time for a trip. Any ideas? I don’t mind flying somewhere (Miami was a thought, but it’s humid and rainy now) and grabbing a cruise. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Yaz answers:

Los Angeles, Las Vegas, or Lake Havisu.
Excellent outdoor activities, fun night life, pretty scenery, good looking women.
Sun.. Hike.. Swim.

Check out Best Single Travel. They have loads of specials for singles in their 30s, 40s, 50s, and active 60s.

Lizzie asks…

Is it pointless to have loads of money after age 40?

Now, answer this truthfully. What is the point of making a lot of money past age 40

-You can’t go to clubs or anything and if you do…your middles aged……. hence lame

-Buying a cool car doesn’t make you cool cause your old…

-any chick that is older than 35 and still single has lower standards anyway….no need to impress the ladies around your age

-What type of vacations are you going to go on? Wait…your over freaking 40….no dating any bikini babes for you

The only point is to save for retirement…..THAT’S it..


Woah….I am surprised at the responses I got

Stepen K- Ya, walk into a club and walk as your saggy,wrinkly boobs roll around the dance floor.

Young is cool old is not.

You guys DO make an interesting point about hobbies. I guess it’s good to make money to be able to DO stuff.

Yaz answers:

Wow.

You are very very young. This is not really the site for you, but I will answer.

You can always use more money at any age. Sorry if that sounds crude, but it’s true. When you turn forty, maybe you want to take up rock climbing or horseback riding or some other new hobby. And those hobbies take money for you to be able to enjoy them, like say, buying your own horse and land at some point.

Or if you got deathly ill, you’d need the money to pay for hospital bills. Or maybe a relative needs help paying medical bills. You can use it to buy a house, take up boating, travel across country in a camper, etc. Or maybe you want to take that vacation to Spain or England, wherever, that you never got to take when you were younger. Oh and don’t forget, helping your kids pay for college. Haha.

There’s always a use to have a nice reserve of cash just in case, or just for the sake of having fun with new things. There’s endless possibilities. =)

William asks…

British over 25 especially men, is it flirting or friends to add an x (kiss) after your name when you text?

New male friend 40 single sends me texts (platonic) with an x after his name. I’m a married woman but we are just friends that met several months ago on vacation. He’s British. I’m american. I’ve never seen this from my american friends…but I don’t text very often either!

Yaz answers:

It’s very very common in the UK for a male to put a kiss on the end of a text to a woman. Doesn’t matter who your texting. Also the women here put a kiss at the end as well when texting men. It’s not flirting or anything. I’ve had this problem with an american friend who is a girl.

Sharon asks…

Guys 18 or over, I’m married, he’s single – are the rules different for our friendship?

I met a man from UK 6 months ago while on vacation here in the US. I am married and he is single. We developed a friendship and emailed a couple times a month. I gave him my cell number and he started to text me and then called me around christmas. Since then we have started calling one another and speak on the phone every couple weeks. ( he stopped emailing as I think calling is easier for him to call – he initiated the texting and calling, I was happy w/email) We were taking turns contacting each other. Sometimes I will think to text him or email him something related to a conversation, but stop myself for fear of him thinking I like him romantically and contacting too much. But with a girl friend I wouldn’t think twice.

Often the women on this site say “yeah no problem having male friends”, but the guys always say otherwise…they always want more. I’m also not sure why this guy wants to be my friend since I don’t really bring anything to the table in terms of an interesting life, work, etc. But he says I’m “witty and charming” so I guess I have some likeable attribute. He is very successful, handsome, albeit commitment phobic since he is still 40 and single lol…But I think it’s cool to have a friend in another country and we talk about interesting things that I don’t have the opportunity for normally.

Are the rules different in guy/girl friendships. This is a new friendship and we don’t really know eachother very well so any insight you can add is appreciated.

My husband knows we are friends.
brucie: I’m attractivebut that shouldnt have anything to do with it.

Yaz answers:

Anything more than friends is a no no. Even if he is from another country. You are married.

William asks…

Is every sweepstake/raffle/draw/lottery a swindle?

I’ve bought so many tickets for cars, holidays, even Xmas hampers, that I could paper my walls with them. Over 50 years of never winning a single thing. Statistically I should’ve won something. So are they all crooked?

Yaz answers:

Not every one is a swindle, but your odds of winning anything are low-usually millions to 1.
Save your money and use it for yourself.

Daniel asks…

Are you a SWOFTY? Are you enjoying life?

Single Woman Over Fifty. Couples over 50 who’s children have left home are splitting in record numbers to seek thrills and Independence.. Women in this age group are suddenly realising they are alone with their partner and actually want something else from life other than a mundane existence and looking after him. Oh dear! The lure of exotic holidays and new experiences is making them kick over the traces but looking after their finances is one drawback as some haven’t ever paid even household bills. Some of you will have Mums in this age group, are they enjoying life or just living in it?
Jess, they can always ring my mobile! It works everywhere except for some strange reason in the Bahamas! Perhaps i’ll go there again next!

Yaz answers:

Though I’m no SWOSTY, I have some good friends who are.

One went to The Gambia a couple of years ago and told me she was amazed at how many women ‘of a certain age’ were indulging with the locals.

Still, they all seemed to have a smile on their faces, according to her!!!

Ken asks…

precalulus homework help?

a tour bus has 80 seats. experience shows that when a tour costs $300, all seats on the bus will be sold. For each additional $10 charged, however, 2 fewer seats will be sold. find a function that represents the revenue derived from a single bus tour?

Yaz answers:

As a function for any trip:
T=(300+10n)x(80-2n)

T=total revenue
n=number of multiples of $10 fare increases above $300

For a specific trip:
T=RS
number of seats sold (S)
revenue per seat (R)

You could simplify my expression “n”….

William asks…

precalc word problem using function.?

i’m completely stuck so here goes:

A tour bus has 80 seats. Experience shows that when a tour costs $300, all the seats on the bus will be sold. For each additional $10 charged,however, 2 fewer seats will be sold. Find a function that represents the revenue derived from a single bus tour.

Yaz answers:

Let the charge be 300 + 10x

Then number of seats occupied = 80 – 2x

Revenue = (300 + 10x)(80 -2x)

R(x) = 24000 + 200x – 20x^2

Laura asks…

I was a tour bus driver for over 50yrs UK and the continent of Europe, passengers were mainly,AMERICANS,?

Considering i’m not a porn star, IS THIS A RECORD ??
I THINK THAT I HAVE DONE MORE THAN MY SHARE TO CEMENT ANGLO AMERICAN,CANADIAN,AUSTRALIAN RELATIONS.( SHOULD I GET A KNIGHTHOOD?)

Yaz answers:

Um. I don’t think this is the site for your question! I’m not here to judge, but we don’t cater to those needs. You can find plenty of places that do, however. This IS the internet, after all.

COACH TOURS FOR SINGLES IN ALL YOUR FAVOURITE CITIES – CLICK HERECoach Tours for Singles Holidays Over 50s

Up to 80% off : Discounted Tours & Activities at City-Discovery.com

 

Seeing a city by coach is really ideal and convenient.

You can get off where you’d like, spending as long there as you want and then get back on when you’re ready. You don’t have to worry about parking like if you were hiring a car, or about high taxi fares. When you take coach tours you also have professional guides to show you around and teach you about their city. And the open tops on many of the coaches give you a view that you simply can’t get by any other mode of transport. In really is a nice way to drive around.

Another good thing about coach tours for singles, in particular, is that you aren’t discriminated against as you normally are in other types of tours where they charge an extra singles supplement, which makes your vacation more expensive. The prices are the same for singles and couples. In this sense all coach tours are coach tours for singles.

If, however, you’d like to go on coach tours that are exclusively for singles then that is a slightly different thing. In that case you really have to book singles holidays. There will be a lot less flexibility because you will be with a set group with a set timetable.

Coach Tours For Singles Over 50s

However, you will be with the company that you want to be with, and it is a much more fun and intimate atmosphere on such tours.

Taking singles holidays does not necessarily limit your choices of destination, however.

There are so many choices of singles tours available, from exploring the very exotic to discovering the wonders of your own country. You can find coach tours for singles in the great cities of every continent and country. In South Africa, Las Vegas, Thailand, Argentina, Greece, Hong Kong, and so many other places. These tours are a lot of fun, create a lot of camaraderie, and often start new friendships that last a lifetime, even.

Whatever type of coach tours for singles you prefer, you should take the opportunity now. Don’t put it off. Click on the links below to find a great package for your Singles Holidays over 50s.

Travelling Alone

Benefits of Travelling Alone

If you are travelling alone for the first time, you may be a bit nervous. Also, friends and family may ask you questions and look at you a little weird. If you are a woman, they may regale you with horror stories. Worse yet if you actually have a family, but want to take some time off for yourself.

Ironically, though, travelling alone allows you to meet people much more easily than would be possible if you were travelling with friends and family. So although you will be “travelling alone”, you will most likely be a lot less alone than you think. Especially when you are travelling “alone” on singles holidays for over 50s.

Travelling Alone

Flexibility

The great thing, however, is that it is all up to you. When you feel like being alone or doing something that only you are interested in, you don’t have to worry about offending anybody, or meshing with your friend’s or family’s schedule. So many opportunities on vacations are missed because of compromises that have to be made for your travel partners. Not so when you are travelling alone.

Travelling alone allows to more fully enjoy your holiday. You can taste-test whatever you want, without your travel partner crinkling their nose in disgust. You can wander the streets of Madrid at 3 am without your travel partner pouting in annoyance.

Also, trips with friends and families seem to generate some sort of fight all the time. Thankfully, that can’t happen when you are travelling alone.

New You

As corny as it sounds, travelling alone also helps you find yourself. Being in a totally new context brings out unexpected and sometimes “unused” sides of yourself that you can discover, or re-discover. It can be a life-changing experience.

For some people, travelling alone is a great way to find someone new as well, romantically or platonically. Quality relationships in our lives are things that should never be taken for granted. If your current circle of family and friends just aren’t doing it for you, then travelling alone can be a great way to make new lasting friends.

Travelling Alone

Checklist for Travelling Alone

Travelling alone also means that you have to be responsible for all your own things. A good checklist of should include

  • carrying a pocket dictionary or phrasebook with you
  • make copies of all your essential travel documents (passport, health insurance, travel itinerary, tour agent information) to leave behind with someone you trust, in case of an emergency
  • Bring a credit card, along with cash. Make sure to take note of your credit card company’s customer service line in case of loss or theft.
  • Take books, a journal to record your experiences, a camera with extra batteries and an extra memory card, and maps to educate yourself on the layout of the area. These things can make a world of difference.

Tips for Women Travelling Alone

Women travelling alone should also follow some of these guidelines:

  • Make sure you know who will be meeting you at the airport and that arrangements are fully secured beforehand.Be your own best counsel in strange situations. If it doesn’t feel right, don’t do it.
  • Carry good identification, in more than one place.
  • Keep to open and public places, especially at night.
  • Exude confidence and walk purposefully.
  • Avoid appearing like a tourist, walking with maps, guidebooks, and tourist clothes or hairstyles.
  • Don’t wear flashy clothes or jewellery.
  • Tell some white lies so that people don’t know you are alone. When asking for directions, pretend that you are meeting your friend.
  • Don’t let down your guard with very friendly and helpful strangers.

Travelling alone will be a rewarding and extremely enjoyable experience. Live Life to the Fullest!

Single Holidays Over 50

Specialized Single Holidays Over 50

Going with a regular travel and tour agent is probably not the best way you should take your vacation. You need a company that specializes in providing single holidays over 50.

By booking through here, you will not be charged an additional “singles supplement”, either.

Travelling with people around your own age — solo travellers who were also in their 20s in the 1980s — will be great fun. You may not really want to be around other families, or a lot of younger singles whose interests may be far different from your own.

Single Holidays Over 50

By being with others who are also over 50 on single holidays, you won’t be out of place. All too often in other travel groups, solo travellers are seen as somehow “lacking”. There is a bit of awkwardness, and sometimes stupid questions are asked.

That won’t happen when you book specialised single holidays over 50. Instead, you will be surrounded by others who share your zeal for life, joy in discovering new places and meeting new people, who are comfortable with themselves, and share similar life experiences and tastes.

Open to New Experiences

You may be single and open to romance. While these single holidays over 50 are not meant to be dating services, it is not unusual for romances to blossom. The main goal, however, is to provide you with an enjoyable experience.

You may simply want to spend some time alone, rethink where you are in your life, get away from it all and come back with a new perspective. Single holidays are perfect for that.

Maybe you wanted to visit a special place for your whole life and never got a chance to do so before. Now is the best time to fulfill those dreams.

Challenging yourself on a Kenyan Safari, looking at ancient ruins in Macchu Picchu, immersing yourself in bustling Thailand, experiencing the history and romance of Greece and the Mediterranean, crusing down the Nile River and experiencing the wonders of the Pyramids, or having a great time in Las Vegas … whatever you want, there is a singles holiday over 50 for you.

If you have any special needs, let the agent know and they will do their best to accommodate you. If you want to meet your fellow travellers before you go, log in to the special Facebook page.

Take time out, discover the world, re-discover yourself, live life to the fullest! Enjoy your single holidays over 50. Click on the links to find the right package for you.

The booking deadlines for the great singles holidays featured on the right are almost here, so make sure you book now to secure your place.
