If you have done a good job planning for your retirement and have little or no debt you are off to a flying start. Many financial advisors suggest that you will require at least 50%-60% of your working income to retire, enjoying your current standard of lifestyle.
Deciding to retire and keeping yourself busy with a hobby or volunteer work will make sure you have something to fill your time. A few of my single friends in Australia have joined ‘volunteers Abroad’ and found a totally new lease on life helping third world countries building such facilities as schools and irrigation works
If you have reached a point in your life where the kids are now gone to build their own lives and the mortgage is paid off then now is the perfect time to book your first trip or cruise, in your new lifestyle. Here are a few cruise ideas to consider.
The small ship cruise advantages
Fantastic on-board service with some cruises being only 40-50 passengers and crew.

I always talk about the bad relationships experiences that I have had. However there were many good ones. There were ones that I regret or wish that I had taken more seriously. There were ones who really like me and I did not like them. And now most of them, if not all, are married and are living a wonderful lives with their wives or serious girlfriends.
It is so easy to get caught up in the could of would of should of. But through these relationships are valuable lessons. The first lesson is that I was not ready for those type of men. While I can always site what the man has done wrong to me, there were times where I went about the relationships wrong way and was not ready for a real relationship. Or better yet there was time where I done the man wrong and I was the one who ruined things.
This is why it is so important that we always work on ourselves so that when the right one does come along we do not go about ruining the relationship.
Yes I am single and I am okay being single. But I must admit that it was not always this way. I used to be like other single women filled with desperation and thinking that me not having a husband or being with someone was the end of the world. With the prevalence of social media and everyone posting their happy married and couple moments all over it, I felt like I was missing something and I felt incomplete.
The idea of being 30 and single would lead the conversation with me and my over 30 single women friends. It was as though we were obsessed with it. I can recall one man that I dated in which he was attractive but no where near a good fit for me and he would often stand me up and not keep his word. My divorced friend told me that since I wanted to get married I should just accept it and not make a big deal about it. She also told me that I was too opinionated, and when talking to men even if I did
Women are attracted to many things, such as money, power, fame and similar. Many of them want a rich guy, who is capable to make their lives easy to live. Some of them want a strong man, ready to protect them from the dangers around the world.
But these wishes are superficial. A Relationship, built on top of those desires, never lasts for long. To be able to attract woman and more importantly, create a lasting attraction, you need to go deeper. And the only way to do it is to develop personality traits that target her emotions, capable to hit the deeper corners of her heart.
Let me explain the difference between the looks and feelings.
Many men think that if they drive a Ferrari, or own a yacht would help them attract more hot women. Others believe that building a heap of muscles would attract women. Well, that’s just wrong.
While women can get attracted to these superficial things because of lust or hope for material benefits, they aren’t driven to them because of the chemistry. They don’t feel the attraction or affection on a deeper
Is the lack of confidence around women holding you back in pursuing the woman of your dreams? You are not alone, many men have this problem. They get tense, anxious and feel insecure in front of the woman they adore. If this keeps on happening to you, you won’t be able to act the way you want and you will appear unattractive to most women. Confidence is a trait that women admire most and building self-confidence around women is necessary if you want to succeed in dating women.
How to build self-confidence around women?
Know that most people lack self-confidence. Your lack of confidence shouldn’t be an excuse for not approaching the woman you like. You have to know that it is normal for people to feel unsure, uncomfortable or shy in front of another person especially if this person is someone you like so you do not have to feel less of a person for feeling less confident. Who knows, the person that you are afraid to approach might be as shy as you are. In building self-confidence around women you have to muster your
Let’s get straight into this…
So, you basically need to roam around your city until you find a girl that you think you would like to talk to and then as you she her approach directly…
And when you have her attention by saying something similar to “Excuse me… ” then say:
“Sorry, could I please borrow your phone for a second please… ” whilst holding strong eye contact…
Depending on the effectiveness of your approach (see three points below), she may or may not hand over her phone, if she doesn’t just say thanks and walk away.
If she does, take the phone and enter your number and call it straight away (ensure your phone is on load), once your phone starts ringing take it out and say thank you to the girl and pass her phone back with a smirk.
The effectiveness of the how to get a girl’s number technique hinges almost solely on the three factors below, there is NO point in getting the girl’s number if you don’t create some sort of bond with the girl as she will just delete yours when she leaves
1. Realise That Your Happiness Is Not Within 1 Specific Girl
The majority of the information handed down to you regarding girls has come from marketers. Marketers who would like you to believe that when you have purchased the correct plastic configurations that the perfect girl will find you. The marketers that present the heavily moderated image on the billboard to keep you going on your little hamster wheel.
This is actually a myth, girls are just like you, human, they get depressed, smell, excrete and are also searching for happiness.
They also couldn’t really care for your plastic configurations or how many 1’s and 0’s you have accumulated in your bank account.
But why would they lie to you?
One answer… Money.
OK, so now we have cleared that up, it should now be obvious that the movie star or calendar girl that you are trying to work out how to get, is not what you actually want.
2. Realise That Your Happiness Is Not Solely Dependant On Your Success With Girls
OK Dave, so if I shouldn’t chase after one specific girl, what should I do to get a girlfriend?
One of men’s greatest fears is that they will end up to a woman who is an emotional liability. They fear being trapped in a miserable relationship. The last thing they want is to be in an unfulfilling relationship with a woman who doesn’t make him happy. Below are some qualities women who satisfy men often have.
The first quality that men often admire in a woman is direction. Men don’t want to be a woman’s life, nor do they want to be her sole provider. Men want a woman who has her own goals and ambitions, a woman who knows what she wants and is prepared to go and get it.
The second quality men like in a woman is independence. This quality ties into the first one but it is more holistic. An independent woman has her own life. She has her own career, her own friends and interests and isn’t the type to drop all of her plans to cater to a guy or go out of her way to show him how much she likes him.
Thirdly, men respect a woman who respects
For most unattached men, the word “single” brings a dual, or should that be duel, feeling. Being single is synonymous with freedom, but on the flip-side, very few men look forward to a lifetime spent alone.

Here are five places that are custom-made for a singles holiday.

Most women have an innate insecurity mechanism. We worry about one thing or another like cellulite, wrinkles, stretch marks or our weight for example.
For many women the thought of flirting with men to initiate contact is worse than giving a speech to an audience of 1000 people. Why? Because we doubt ourselves. We convince ourselves from the outset that a guy won’t be attracted to us. This can be the case even if we receive lots of evidence contrary to our self-opinion, like men looking at us, paying us compliments and pursuing us. Our perception of ourselves will always be the opinion that we listen to.

Do you find it difficult to impress women? Do you want to get rid of the tag of ‘loneliness’? Are you sick of ‘being single?’
Then you have landed on the right article, because I am here to tell you the top five ways to impress women. Since I am myself one, I know what the ladies look in men. If you think growing muscles or earning a handsome salary is all that you need to impress a real woman, then you are surely wrong.
Following are the top five ways to impress the real women:
- Just be yourself – Instead of imitating someone, it is better to be just the way you are. You don’t need to do a lot of things to impress us; all you need to do is be who you are. We like men who know how to express their emotions and put their innermost feelings into words. Unless you do that, you can never have the right kind of a woman walking by your side.
- Don’t be too hard on yourself – The worst thing that most of the men do is
In reality though the real reason why she does not respect you is because of this!
You have nothing to offer as far as getting your life together.
Yes getting yourself together for yourself so that they will notice you, crave your attention, be around you. When you got yourself together you feel better, look better and command respect.
Women like to talk smack and make you feel bad about your manliness but do not fall for this nonsense because they do want a man who acts like a man, does things like men and can handle himself in any situation without falling to their knees and giving up!
By nature women need to be with men and men need to be with women.
Women also want a man who has resources, which is why Rich Men always do better with the women than Poor Men. There is no turning this around as this is how Nature works. The one with the most resources gets to breed while the one who has no resources is left watching on the sidelines.
Do me the favor and stop rolling over like dogs
Oh my goodness. This was a life-changer that I learned in a workshop, the short course that changed the course of my life.
I met my love after 5 years of being single and feeling more and more lonely, till that fated evening when I found out what I really wanted in a partner. And soon enough, I was in a steady relationship, totally in love, and finally married. It is the second and last time, for good reasons, of course. Curious about how we met? If for you or someone you know, here is the exercise I learned in a special romance workshop. It worked, and we have now been married for over 7 years, together for over 14.
Step 1: Get a pen and paper, whiteboard, or notebook on your device, and write down the 10 qualities that are most important to you in a partner. And remember, this is to help you move forward, so no cheating! For example, “attractive, tall, green eyes, black hair, athletic” does not count as one quality but 5. And “kind, generous, loyal” is 3 qualities, not 1.
Do you ever fear of being single forever? This fear of being single is so widespread that in our day to day life someone or the other is either trying to find someone, or forget someone or deal with someone. The desire to be with someone and being loved is one of the most fundamental human needs. And when a person is afraid of being single, he has a nagging feeling that he is destined to be alone forever, or maybe he is full of flaws. But this is just a fear and not a reality. You must know that you are a worthy person and deserved to be loved. Don’t let fear of being single guide your life.
Start with being gentle with yourself…
There is an inner-voice in us that constantly analyses everything about our life. We engage in positive and negative self-talks that has an impact on our feelings. So when your inner voice says discouraging things such as, “I am so stupid”, “I am ugly”, “I always mess things up” and the like, your insecurity increases and you start believing that you
