Your Questions About Tourist Spots In Puerto Rico and Puerto Rico Travel Deals

Helen asks…

What are some of the best vacation spots in Puerto Rico?

I’m looking for a tourist spot near the beach with gorgeous views and nice hotels.

Yaz answers:

San Juan is nice. It’s a big historic city with nice beaches and plenty to do and see.

Rincon on the west coast has great sunsets & nice beaches, especially for surfers. Very laidback feel.

Vieques & Culebra are small islands off the east side with gorgeous white sand beaches. Very quiet & relaxing

Fajardo or Luquillo on the east side are close to el Yunque rain forest. Both have beaches. Fajardo is great for boating & fishing also.

Joseph asks…

In Puerto Rico there is a tourist spot called la pargera where the sea water?

lights up when they take it out of the water could anybody body tell me what is the name of the town in located also could you please give me some hotels i know the hotels are near by but could you give me some names of the hotels near the area thanks

Yaz answers:

PR has 3 places where the water is bioluminescent. La Parguera is the least bright Bio bay on PR. The other ones are in Fajardo and Vieques are much better.

If you are coming to PR just to see the glowing water, you might want to look into these other areas instead.

Mary asks…

Which is cheaper? New York or Puerto Rico?

I’m trying to plan a 4 night trip to either New York or Puerto Rico for the end of July/ beginning of Aug. What would you all suggest? I’m trying to choose the place that would be cheaper in total cost. (flight, hotel, food, tourist spots)

Thomas asks…

Where on the web are the best places to find great deals on traveling to Puerto Rico/ Tropical locations?

Looking specifically for some sort of resort/villa right on the beach …

Yaz answers:

I just got back from Costa Rica. I stayed in Playa Hermosa, a little beach town on the Pacific side. It has hotels ranging from rustic beach cabanas to 5 star all-inclusive resorts. I flew into Liberia ( the state capitol of Guanacaste) with American Airlines and my RT ticket was $349 including taxes, fees, etc. Check out farebuzz.com , hotelopia, and Hotels by City. They have great offers.

Really depends on your budget. Try Hotelopia and Hotels by City for some excellent rates:

Your Questions About The Best Place To Visit In Puerto Rico

Susan asks…

Where is the best place to visit in Puerto Rico?

Planning a trip this summer. Best place for the “young in spirit” to have a good time.

Yaz answers:

If you get chance try to rent a car, that way you can see the sights on your terms and not on a set time frame with a group tour. Most people will know English, especially in the tourist areas, but trying your hand at speaking Spanish looks good.

If you do rent a car just bear in mind that driving is a little crazy, just keep your eyes on all your mirrors and you’ll be fine.

Places to Stay.
Really depends on your budget. Try Hotelopia and Hotels by City for some excellent rates:

There are some great hotels overlooking the beach in the Condado area.

Places to see.

Old San Juan – easily spend a few hours walking around here. It’s a little hilly so maybe jump on the free trolley bus to El Morro (the fort) and work your way back down through the city. Plenty of places to eat and drink for all budgets. Try Breakfast at La Bombonera (one of the oldest establishments in the city)

El Yunque (rainforest) plus spend the afternoon at Luquillo Beach

Check out one of the grand hotels on a weekend evening and try your hand (feet) at some latin dancing.

Ponce on the South coast for more Puerto Rican architecture

Arecibo Observatory. The James Bond movie Golden Eye and also the Jodie Foster movie Contact were filmed there.

There is also this: Las Cabezas de San Juan Nature Reserve (Tel:787-722-5882). I have not been, but I would like to (it sounds a cool place to visit). You can have an escorted tour through the reserve on an electric trolley, but you have to book in advance.

There is plenty to do here. You might even want to consider a side trip to Vieques or Culebra (as I’ve heard the beaches are amazing)

Try the local food stands and just enjoy everything that the island has to offer.

Food wise, everything you can imagine. In Condado area for seafood try Miro’s (was there yesterday and it was superb). In Old San Juan try The Parrot Club for Caribbean style or Tantra’s for Indian cuisine

Thomas asks…

Best Place To Visit In Puerto Rico In Spring?

I am going to Puerto Rico in the Spring, but I don’t exactly know where yet. I am hoping somewhere with a laid back town with places to shop, have beaches, and exploring places. If you know where the perfect destination is please write below and tell me! Thanks.

Yaz answers:

I would DEFINITELY suggest Rincon to you! Rincon is a smaller town on the Western side of the island, it is a super laid back area – great beaches, good surfing, good places to eat, lots to do in the immediate vicinity.

You can search things to do around Rincon here: www.rinconvacations.com

James asks…

what city is the best place to visit in puerto rico?

hello. I was wondering what is a good, safe, fun city/town to vacation in puerto rico.
i am single and love to surf.
any suggestions.
thanks

Yaz answers:

Rincon is for you. On the west side of the island, it’s a surfers paradise. Laid back, relaxed and fun.

Carol asks…

what is the best place to visit in puerto rico?

Yaz answers:

Your question is very broad. I would Say the best place to visit in PR is Old San Juan. That is the old historic part of the city where you can see lots of sites like El Morro Fort. San Juan also has the best nightlife, shopping & entertainment.

For the best beach, you should go to Culebra island. They also have great snorkelling. The best natural sites are El Yunque rain forest, Camuy Caves & the biobay.

The best manmade site (apart from everything in Old San Juan) would be the Arecibo Telescope.

For the best surfing go to Rincon in the winter.

For the best views go to the central area’s like Utuado & Orocovis.

Mandy asks…

Hi Ppl,

I will be in san juan for the first two nights and then out to some plane ride that lands and takes off from the water….cant remember what thats called….1 week starting tommorow….Let me know….Anything….

En espanol

Donde esta las cosas rico en puerto rico

Muchos Gracias

Yaz answers:

Old San Juan
El Yunque Rain Forest
Culebra or Vieques islands (ferry service from Old San Juan)
Camuy Caves
Arecibo Observatory (Radiotelescope from Contact & James Bond’s Goldeneye)

Old San Juan has lots of bars, pubs, restaurants and a couple of discos.
Condado and Isla Verde have most of the beaches in the San Juan Metro Area. This area is where most of the hotels are, almost all have casinos and some have nightclubs like the Water Club at the Gallery Inn in Isla Verde.

The Puerto Rico Tourism Company is pretty good when it comes to information, they have magazines in most places in Old San Juan, Condado, Isla Verde and all other tourist spots in the island.

If you want to venture out of the touristy area and go to a local hotspot, there is always Shannan’s Irish Pub (in Guaynabo), Logan’s (Rio Piedras), Double Team (San Patricio), and lots more all over the metro area.

best 1 week vacation for single man over 50?

looking for a get away for 1 week ,I am single man good looking living in canada,want to go where weather is nice,lots of woman ,have lots of fun,not interested in marriage ,or looking for a partner,just woman to have fun with while i am there,wine woman and song,

Yaz answers:

Thailand.
No contest.

Sandy asks…

Where can a single- over 50- woman go alone on a vacation and feel fairly safe? Not too expensive!!!!?

Yaz answers:

Hi there! As a 49 year old woman friend of mine who travels a lot advised me, there are two suggestions:

1. Her home state of Alaska. There is hardly any crime, the traffic is minimal and Anchorage is a very safe and fun big city. It has a small town feel even though it is a city of approx 300,000. The summers are gorgeous, but you must be prepared for rain and cool temps. Lots of outdoor activities, plus the city offers great restaurants, clubs, shops – you name it. Alaska isn’t cheap, but if you research enough you can get some great deals.

2. Where she is living at present – Panama City Beach, Florida
Not too expensive and safe. The beaches are gorgeous: white sand, turquoise waters, palm trees – people are friendly and they are definitely developing too much – trying to turn this place into a Destin/SanDestin etc…but still fairly unspoiled, people are friendly and lots of activities for day/night.

Good ol’ USA is a gorgeous place: you could also try Arcadia Nat’l Park, Maine/Nova Scotia, Oregon coastline, Keystone/sturgis/Deadwood, South Dakota area, Eureka Springs, Arkansas; Cody Wyoming/Yellowstone too many to name!

Hope this helps any questions.

Your Questions About Holidays For Singles Over 60

Steven asks…

are there any decent holidays for over 60’s singles wanting to enjoy good company without being overpowering

Not looking for Spiritual fulfilment, not looking particularly to develop new arty crafty skills, just to enjoy good standard of mixed company that can be fun.

Yaz answers:

I would suggest that a Cruise would be your best idea – lots of nice people to meet and then you are all in the same place and visiting thoughout your time onboard.

Check out Best Single Travel. They specialise in holidays for singles over 60, and you don’t have to pay an expensive “singles supplement” like you do with other travel agents.

Holidays For Singles Over 60

Lizzie asks…

What is the best company that offers holiday for single people over the age of 60 ?

Yaz answers:

There a number of them, but I recommend Best Single Travel. (Click on the link above.)

You can check others, though. Another well  known specialists for “over 50’s” holidays must surely be Saga holidays, who also have a dedicated section for single travellers –
Another company possibly worth taking a look at is “JustYou” who also cater for single travellers of all ages.

Mandy asks…

60 years old, single, what to do on the coming holidays?

are women interested? i don,t want to spend the holidays alone, but i don,t mind if i do. but it would be nice to have company, female company, i am not a spendthrift, but i am not a high roller, i don,t go for the dinner scene or movie scene, so anyway, what is there to do over the holidays with or without a nice companion, any ideas, for yuma arizona, holidays, meaning ThanksGiving, Christmas and anywhere from now til then? should i pick a destination and just get up and go? France China, which one? or locally, some state, in the southern part of the usa? which one?? thanks for all and any ideas and comments, all is appreciated
i have yet to travel to and visit France or China, what are they like this time of the year? i would like to stay for at least three months. just want to get on a plane and buy what i need when i get there, which is the place to do this easier? but i would also like tips about what to do locally while in yuma arizona, in the next few weeks, thanks again

Yaz answers:

I have travelled alone for many years. Currently I enjoy putting my car on a train and then driving around the chosen destination, staying at backpackers hostels, or camping (small tent easy to put up, takes no room in the car). At each place overseas, I take a tour, preferably a water trip as it is so soothing. On tours, there is company, so a day trip or two-day trip helps get in touch with people again.

Your Questions About Singles Holidays 30s

Sandy asks…

I am thinking about going on a 20s-30s singles adventure holiday – can anyone recommend a good one?

Yaz answers:

Always fancied going on a travelbag tour but never got around to it! They have a good reputation and deal with individuals groups and alsorts!

John asks…

singles holiday for one person.among like minded people.male over 30s?

single male age 35.would like holiday in europe with like minded people.like club 18 to 30s but not into clubbing and power drinking.loves sunning on beach and water sports

Yaz answers:

Bite the bullet and go alone! I am in my 40s and have been going abroad on my own since I was 18. You can always find someone to talk to, by the pool, at the beach, at the welcome meeting or on an organised trip. It can be a bit pricier going alone if you don’t go with a specialised company, but sometimes the singles holidays I’ve seen advertised are even dearer. Having said that, the holiday I went on last month cost me £160 for the week – that was Costa Brava, peak season in a 3 star hotel. Go on, be brave!

 If you check out Best Single Travel (click the link) they have specialised tours for 18-35 year olds. But if you  don’t want the binge drinking, “party hard”, university type stuff, you might consider going on a singles tour for 30s and older. Check out the link below for that.

Danielle asks…

Any suggestions for short holidays (under 10 days) for single women in their late 30s, this winter?

Going back to work on Jan 8. In Canada only. Not too lavish. No sex please. Any ideas about dog-sledding trips in the northern part of the country are also welcome (for beginners).

Yaz answers:

Pack up your skis, jump on a WestJet flight to Calgary.. Take the Airport Shuttle to Lake Louise, Kananaskis, Banff…. If you’re not a skiier then just enjoy the scenery (boys included), take a tour on the Icefields Parkway.. Tons of stuff and great places to stay out here… Tons of people (single and otherwise) doing the same thing, those that live near and those that come from far. Dog sledding out here as well as you mentioned, perhaps in Northern Saskatchewan as well. That is a little more remote, here is a big tourist area and you wont lose any comforts unless you want to. Rent a cabin, stay in a hotel (budget to extreme), or camp year round.

Check it out on the web.. Keywords travel Banff, travel Kananaskis, etc etc..

James asks…

Things to do when single for the holidays!?

I am a 28 year old single male from NY. I was wondering what most single people do on the holidays when all of their friends are with their balls and chains (girlfriends/wives). Some people have suggested double dating, attending parties with other couples etc. The thing is, I don’t date as I don’t get the point of it. I don’t like people touching me or vice versa. Maybe it’s because I haven’t met the right girl yet. Most of them are trash these days you know! Because of this reality I haven’t even been able to experience my first kiss yet. I also have not gone on a date for about 5 years. I have gone on a grand total of 2 dates in my entire life too. So dating is pretty much out for the holidays? What is a good thing to do? I was thinking about maybe gambling or going out for coffee, etc. And why are people getting into serious relationships so early in life, especially now that the life expectancy has gone up considerably? If I try dating again, it will be in my 30s.

Yaz answers:

Well, I’ll leave some of the glaring issues aside for now. But in your case, just dating is not a good idea to spend holidays… You should travel around the world. May be you will find someone special without looking for one. And if not, you’ll have a good time.

Your Questions About Singles Cruises Over 40

Ken asks…

Any recommendations for cruises specifically for over 40 singles (older, but not old singles)?

Some of my friends and I would just like to take short cruises and trips that are geared for older, mature singles. Older doesn’t mean old! Mid 40‘s is mature, but certainly not old, and we don’t want to be stuck on a cruise with a bunch of “kids” or “senior citizens” but would prefer a clientele composed of our own age group. We live in NYC and love to party, dance, drink, swim and soak up the sun’s rays, sports, etc., but we’re committed to not doing so with “kids” or “senior citizens.” We’ve researched only a few singles cruises and found their pictorials very disappointing in that the clientele may be single, but obviously too young or too old.

Yaz answers:

You really have to go for a specialized travel agent, like Best Single Travel.

Singles Vacations for Singles in their 30s 40s 50s & Active 60s


Greek Island Hopping & Cruise Singles Vacation

from: Best Single Travel

Singles Vacations

A travel agent that specializes in cruises will really help. You won’t have to pay an expensive “singles supplement”, for one.

If you want to try other options, I would definitely stay away from Carnival and Disney. Both are popular for families and younger people. While adults still enjoy both lines, you will want to avoid them if you don’t want kids on board.

Royal Caribbean is going to have a slightly older crowd than Disney and Carnival, but still will have quite a few families on board. But, I believe this will be a line that could possibly work for you.

Princess is going start to go a little over your age range. It is a little more expensive and little more classy than the other three lines I mentioned. I would say the average age is around 40 or 50, so as far as age this may be a good line for you. However, if you are really wanting to party, I don’t know how much you would enjoy this particular line.

Norweigan may also be an option. I think they would have an average age of around 40 on board. Not too many kids, adults not too old, etc. So this may be a line to consider as well.

The best thing to do is look for lines that have the fewest children’s activities. These will be the lines with the fewest kids on board. Also, try going during the school year, this way most kids will still be in school and fewer will be on board.

Finally, I recommend look at http://www.cruisecritic.com for lots of reviews on different lines as well as boats. They also have a great message board where you can chat with other people about cruises.

Hope this helps!

George asks…

What’s the best cruise / cruise line for singles over 40?

All of the singles cruises I’ve found cater to either 1) 20 to 30-somethings; or 2) seniors. Isn’t there anything in between? I’m just interested in hanging out with fun, energetic, intelligent people around my age!

Yaz answers:

That is a great question…….

Best Single Travel specialises in Singles Vacations for Singles in their 30s 40s 50s & Active 60s

Singles Vacations

But if the cruises they have on offer right now don’t fit your schedule or where you’d like to go, it might be a bit of a drag.

I’ve suggested getting a blog together to find groups of people who want to cruise together. Carnival is very inexpensive right now, for september. Http://www.halladazevacations.com/cruise.html and I see a lot of our aged people mixing and migeling on there… And besides the 20-30 somethings have to go back to school / work in September. Check out the blog on that page and maybe suggest a travel group of single 40 somethings! Hope I’ve helped you out!

Carol asks…

Serching Hawaii cruise for 2 single women over 40?

I’m sorry I don’t have a link for a Hawaii cruise, but I do have one for a Greek Island Hopping cruise and Egyptian and Nile Cruise specially for singles over 40.

It is here: http://singles-holidays-over-50s.com/singles-cruises-over-40/

It is a great experience.

Charles asks…

Is it harder to find a date as a single man over 40, or a single woman over 40?

I had a conversation with a lady friend this weekend and I would like to know some other opinions. I say it is harder for men. A 40 year old man in a cruising for women is kinda sad. Women just have to pick a guy to go home with where men can’t just pick a woman it does not work that way. You got to be tall, good looking, in shape, house car job you name it. Women just have to be fat in the right places. Guys have it much harder in my opinion because being a good man has nothing to do with the man that women want.

Yaz answers:

At 40, you do have to have a job and a car helps too :) My single friends think it is easier for women. In her words, she’s not fat (lol) but is 40. She has been dating a man for 9 months and in the mean time she was asked out almost every day by someone else. (They are newly engaged. Good for them.) She tells me that she thinks  it is also harder to get “rid” of a man when you want out of a relationship than it is for a man.

Good luck guy~the term “cruisin for women” won’t get you a lot of dates either :( I think at that point most women want some type of reliable man in their life.

Mary asks…

Inexpensive Restaurants In Paris, France?

My sister and I are going on a trip to France in the coming months, and I would like to have a list of inexpensive restaurants. We are each looking to spend around 10 to 15 euros for lunch and 20 to 25 euros for dinner and we are spending 5 days and 4 nights so we could really use all the help we can get.

Yaz answers:

You’ll find that there are plenty of places where meals can be had within that price range.

French law requires that cafes and restaurants post their prices in the window. Wherever you go you can check the prices before entering.

In France the term “menu” refers to a fixed price meal, usually with somewhat limited choices and almost always a good buy. (What English speakers refer to as a menu is called “la carte” in France.)

For some specific reccomendations:

L’ Auberge au Pot de Terre at 22 rue du Pot de fer (5th arr) has an evening menu for 11.50 . Http://www.lepotdeterre.com/index2.htm

La Brouette at 39/41 rue Descartes (5th) serves up an all you can eat Fondue Bourguignonne with potatoes and vegatables for 20.90 € http://www.labrouette.fr/

La Lozere at 4, rue Hautefeuille (6th) has an excellant menu for 21.90 € On thursday nights they make “aligot” a fantastic mashed potato dish made with cheese and heavy cream. Http://www.lozere-a-paris.com/

Crepes a Gogo at 12 rue Soufflot (5th) Paris has an all the crepes (both savory and sweet) you can eat for 18 € on Wednesday nights.

La Méthode at 2, rue Descartes (5th) has main course for 10-15 € and draws a pleasant crowd with a lot of students.

The Restaurant Maupertu at 94, Boulevard de La Tour Maubourg (7th) has an excellant lunchtime menu for 23 €. Http://www.restaurant-maupertu-paris.com/menu_en.htm

And check out the excellent guide above.

You can read more at the web page on this site about Cheap Restaurants in Paris.

William asks…

what are some inexpensive but good restaurants in Paris?

Yaz answers:

If you read french check this site
http://mmmm.free.fr/

But the guide I mentioned above is really superb. You should try it.

Chris asks…

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive, decent restaurant in Paris?

Preferably in the 14th/15th arrondissement. Also, where can really nice gluten-free bread be found in Paris?

Yaz answers:

There is a restaurant that I recommend to anyone going to Paris. It is called “Nos Ancetres Les Gaulois.” It is near Notre Dame Cathedral.

Here is their website: www.nosancetreslesgaulois.com

I recommended this to a native Parisian I know who had never been. They loved it and have returned each time they go back home.

Also check out our webpage and the guide that we mentioned above.

Sandy asks…

Romantic, inexpensive restaurant in Paris?

My girlfriend and I are spending our 1 year anniversary in Paris and it’s the first time for both of us in the “City of Love”. We are looking for a special restaurant for our special night but as we are students we can not afford anything too expensive. The food must be good (although she is not the most adventurous person when it comes to food), it must be very romantic and not cost over €100 for us both to eat. A good view is also a big plus! Thanks in advance! :)

Yaz answers:

While I wouldn’t say there is much of a view I would suggest Le Coupe Chou at 9 & 11, rue de Lanneau in the 5th arrondissment. Its quite a pleasant and cozy place with reasonable prices. Here is their website (In both French and English). Http://www.lecoupechou.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=17d8ae5ee71ea0e209cf3313d06d8e58

I should mention that what one person sees as romantic another will not. Indeed “inexpensive” is another such word since I would not associate it with a €100 meal for two. So I will put in a plug for my favorite little place, La Methode at 2 rue Descartes.in the 5th. Its on a tiny little square just a few blocks south of the Pantheon. A very nice three course meal with drinks before and a coffee after will cost you no more than €60-€70 including a pitcher of one of the house wines (all of which are quite nice). There’s no view at all from the dining room in the back (which is where I suggest you eat) but staff is very friendly and good humoured in this tiny place and you’ll feel quite at home. The food is stunningly good and traditionally French with the occassional little extra touch (like szechuan peppercorns on the duck breast).

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.

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
