Your Questions About Singles Over 50 Travel

Michael asks…

I recently moved to Newport, RI. and would like to know where I can meet eligible bachelors here over 50.?

I am an early to bed, early to rise type lady who loves fine dining, world travel, sailing, golf and polo.

I eat lunch at LaForge, attend Polo, play golf but haven’t been approached by any single men.

I wear pretty skirts, do my hair nice and am reasonably attractive.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I’m not a night owl and don’t do bars. Perhaps a good breakfast place?

Yaz answers:

Try Match.com seriosuly there seem to be lots of guys in Newport on there. Or join Chairty event.s

Donald asks…

How do i get a refund for train tickets online?

I have made the mistake of purchasing rail tickets for travel to London Paddington tomorrow morning at 11:55 ….

I will be unable to travel but as i have purchased advance singles to Paddington and for my journey back, i am being told that i cannot cancel the tickets and claim a refund….

Meaning i am over £50 loss, surely there is someway of claiming a refund or credit note from thetrainline.com

Any help is greatly appreciated, thank you.

Yaz answers:

If the conditions of Advance tickets mean that there is no refund, then, I’m afraid there is little you can do.

When purchasing the tickets you would have had two options:-

1) Purchase the cheapest possible ticket with penalties for changing your mind and no refunds

2) Purchase a more expensive ticket with flexibility and most of your money back if you cancel.

Unfortunately for you, you chose option 1. Nobody made you choose this option. It was a gamble and this time you lost.

Sharon asks…

I’m in my late 50’s, single female, from new york after 30 years, lived in colorado and want to move to…?

I am in my 50‘s, don’t have a college degree, have experience in housekeeping, caregiver(not certified), love to cook(not a chef)and have traveled to over 30 states including Anchorage, Alaska, and parts of Canada. I am looking to move from Colorado Springs(only has fast food jobs)to a medium to small community where I can work on a temp basis until I find something permanent. I don’t want to sign a lease(don’t want to commit). I enjoy music, jazz, top 40’s, meeting singles(I’m single)and thought Seattle was the place for me until I read the horrible traffic, cost of living is high and how it rains 9 months out of the year. I need some direction.

I was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity but am considering turning it down because I’m afraid to travel

I was offered a once in a lifetime opportunity but am considering turning it down because I’m afraid to travel

I’ve never gone anywhere outside my hometown. This job would require me to go all over the US, Canada, Europe, etc. I seriously live in a bubble, and I’m afraid to leave my parents. I’m young, right out of college but I’ve interned at this place for quite a few years and they offered me a full time position. I’d be travelling 50% of the time. I’m afraid of planes. But I feel that I’m single and have no attachments. I needt o learn to be on my own.

Accept the offer or turn it down? I’m so torn. The money is excellent for me being right out of school, I just am so hesitant because of the travel.

Girl. You are young. You will only be able to do this once.
You will cry and tear your hair out, but end up a stronger happier person for it. You say you live in a bubble. Break out!
2 years ago, I had never been more than 40km away from my mum. I was married (still am), 22, and had our own place, but still spoke to my mum every day and would automatically turn to her at the slightest hiccup.
One day, my husband and i were sitting in KFC talking rubbish. We kind of sort of maybe said ‘Hey, we’ve always talked about going to Europe… We should do it one day’
The next day I started applying online for jobs in the UK, so we could base ourselves and travel. I wasn’t really expecting anything to come of it, but by the end of the week I had received a call and been hired as a teacher in Birmingham.
We had 4 months to save. We sold everything we owned and THEN thought ‘oh no… What have we done??’
We arrived 4 mths later – in the ghetto. Violence, crime, tougher kids than I ever imagined existed. I cried every day for a month. I missed my mum. I missed Australia. I didn;t think I would cope and desperately wanted to go home.
At the end of the 1st month things didn;t seem nearly so bad… Not great, but I was crying once a week instead of every day. Then not at all.
2 years later and it was the best decision I have ever made.
The 1st 2 month were hard, then I adapted and it was fine.
The same will happen to you. If you can sacrifice 2 months (maybe less if you’re better than me!!), you will have something that will be a personal, professional and just general boon for you.
Everything will still be there when you go back, You’ll have missed a few birthdays perhaps… Maybe some Christmases… A few subtle changes…but everyone and everything will be pretty much exactly as you left them. I promise.
I am 24 and I now solve my own problems (except the REALLY big ones.. And mum is only 10 numbers away!!)
DO IT!!!
DO IT!!!
DO IT!!!
Hard? Yes.
BUT it will be so worth it and you will KICK yourself if you don;t do it!!!
Swallow your butterflies and get excited about all the cool syuff you will be seeing!!
