    #10 Love the "used husband in fair condition," @Nicole Chardenet! That is wonderful! I guess we all know that over the millenia, women have been prized for their looks; men, not so much. They were the ones who went out and found the food for the family, fought the wars, fought to keep what was theirs safe. Looks likely were irrelevant.

    Now? Well, yes. Women are still judged more harshly in terms of looks as we age, but I firmly believe that we mostly also take much better care of ourselves, and I know we look damn fine!

    Waiting for the next installment . . . :-)

    You can always change your mind (of course I'm just kidding). It has to be hard to be on these dating sites. I keep seeing a commercial in the US for one of the dating sites and of course it showcases 2 young and beautiful females and one hot guy who looks like he's a lot of fun but too young if someone in our age group were looking. That is unless the young guy is looking for a MILF- or should I just say, sex?! I once had someone tell me on Social Media that I was a MILF. I was so naive and had to ask what that meant... I asked the guy, no less! I was really embarrassed and felt like I appeared to be a piece of meat rather than a female who wasn't even using social media looking for guys. It has to be tough as a single woman looking for a decent man. Don't give up, I think you are figuring this out.. methodology does come in handy. ;-)

    #9 Thanks, Franci-Eugenia! I hope to have it out in the next week. It was actually one fairly long post that I cut into two so part of the next is already written. Interestingly, I have a suitor I only just recently met, not through Spinal Tap, who came over to pick up some winter coats from me for charity and I invited him to a dinner party I was holding that night. He is extremely interesting and bright and has one hell of a backstory to tell...some of it tragic, some of it happy, but he's indicated interest. We are talking about hanging out as friends for now but maybe seeing where it goes. I don't know him that well for now and I *do* need to get to know a person before I warm up to them. We'll see how it goes...

    #5 @Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess I keep thinking about The Toothpicker...I think I mentioned him in my previous post and he'll get a brief mention in my next one...and the reason I keep thinking about him is because he is is just the epitome of what I wanted to avoid and the giant red flag that I needed to qualify candidates better. (And as soon as I thought of it as 'qualifying candidates' I knew my Inner Salescritter had kicked in to point out that hey, there were some real similarities to trying to close a sales deal and dating!) The Toothpicker was a good, basic, decent guy....whose life was over. Who was never going to look good again *because he chose not to* even though you could see he used to be a really great-looking guy. He was, essentially, a Used Husband in Fair Condition who screamed, "I was married for thirty years and I treat you and other women the way I treated my wife...as though we have all this established familiarity between us so I didn't have to try hard anymore." I think a lot of the guys are like that, unfortunately. I should probably make more of an effort to get on every night and just see if there's anyone new, because I'm sure the 'good ones' get snapped up fairly quickly, and I want to submit by bid before it's too late :)

    16/11/2017 #5 Susan 🐝 Rooks, the Grammar Goddess
    "What a contrast to the middle-aged men’s photos - out-of-focus, schlumpy, badly-dressed, and often scowling or unsmiling. I sift through, knowing looks aren’t everything and in all honesty, I really am more interested in how closely we match."

    Once I catch my breath from laughing, @Nicole Chardenet ... yes. Absolutely right! I spent a few years (a few years ago) going through the usual sites -- most of them decent enough -- to find very few men who took took care of themselves. Really. Men don't have to be handsome -- especially at this age although the ones that do take care of themselves sure do look goooooooood -- but 75 lbs overweight? No exercise? No interest in anything? Watch TV all day, go out for a few beers at night?

    I found a few nice men -- they do exist -- but several wanted to travel all the time, and I have put down some nice roots where I am.

    One of my "problems" is that I could be retired -- according to the statistics -- but what the heck would I do with myself? I don't have a lot of hobbies. I'm pretty much an introvert, except when I can't be. I love my work! I love gardening. I love reading. I love walking my dogs 4-5 miles in decent weather most days! I love living my life -- my way.

    What I've decided is simple: I like living alone. Simple. Easy. Fun.

    Cue Sinatra: My Way.

    #3 Hi David, thanks for stopping by and casting your lot in on the dating scene. I'm quite curious as to what it's like on the other side. I'm not surprised you got ignored or just not much responded to, I've heard that a lot from guys. And it occurred to me later that all those great gals might be closet crazies...I've also heard about 'the crazies' from my male friends. Getting to know people in real life is probably way better than doing it online, but it's harder to do in Toronto where the men live in abject fear that if they're not very, very careful they might get laid :) I'm not sure why Toronto men are so frigid but I suspect 'the crazies' - uber-feminists - are behind it, as a Millennial friend of mine found a photo of some graffiti someone wrote on a wall somewhere that said, "Toronto women turn men gay!" And I know the feminists here have brought new dimension to the word 'crazy'!

    I'm finding that doing the research as one goes along brings expectations into line and makes you waaaaay better at screening out the inappropriate candidates (meaning inappropriate for *you*, not that she sends you dick pics, LOL). I'm sorry you got dumped by your ex. I hope you finally meet the right person and remember, *learn* all you can about dating, women, emotions, all that stuff...it really does make a difference and the more you know, the less powerless and out of control you'll feel. Most people, both genders, don't do this and we should. We research the hell out of just buying a simple mobile, why do we keep spinning our wheels in the dating scene and then withdraw like angry kittens spitting, "All wo/men are assholes!"?

    Fantastic article!! I was thrown into the depths of single hood after my wife of 7 years and together for more then 11 years (High School Sweetheart) cheated on me. Split ways, and I was not excited. Both from a heartbreak side, and also a "Crap what do I do now" I hadn't dated since High School!! I'm 30 and my last date with someone other than my ex wife consisted something like an awkward A&W cruise night date in 2004 (or close to that time frame). I did think that the dating apps made it simple so of course I tried all the standard ones and spent hours updating my profiles, including all about myself, and really wanting to connect with someone on a meaningful level. I guess I spent far too much time listing the books I love, favorite Hobbies, and what not, because in the end when I finally got to the searching portion, and swiping a certain direction, or winking at, or heart, or whatever the apps needed, I found quickly that the attractive girls didn't need any form of bio, just hot pictures. I guess that works for the majority of my Gender base, however I wanted to connect deeper then that, I wanted to TALK to these girls, not take them to a bar and slither my way back home to bed them.Well I spent awhile searching, and it just was awful, so i went back to the old school way, and just talked to people in or around my circle of friends. Worked a lot better for me! I think your article can work for both sides depending on what you're looking for. I never found all of those amazing women you were speaking of. Hopefully the men you are looking for will shape up a bit and post who they are, not what they look like!!

    Great advice @Royce Shook. We set a yearly travel budget and a budget for each trip. I always rely on maps and plan a day ahead. The one time that I solely relied on GPS, I spent seeming forever circling through Kansas City, with endless "recalculating" comments. I finally pulled over at gas station and asked for help.

    Maps still come in handy because there are times you may be in a large city with closed roads or bridges... the GPS may not know this and you may have to pull out a Map. This happened to us in Pittsburgh recently. We like to stay in comfortable hotels (lets just say, I'm picky) so we cut back on spending when it comes to eating out and trying to find attractions (which are abundant) that are free to enjoy. Also, if a person is going to stay somewhere for a week, using homeaway to book a cabin or rental home is cheaper than hotels generally. Plus, you can buy all your snacks, drinks and food to have on hand at the home and cook in, which is cheaper too! Great suggestions @Royce Shook

    Thank you so much for this touching buzz, @Mohammed A. Jawad! Especially the lines, "At times, when sick parents get irritated, children ought to be persevering, their little loneliness should be balanced with cheerfulness, their inquisitiveness should be dealt calmly, and there’s wide wisdom in not retorting them back with a single word."

    I know it is difficult. I have been in that situation too, when the constant repeating of a single word or thought makes you feel exhausted. But then I thought, how exhausting must it be for them to not being able to understand what is being told. How helpless they must be feeling. This most definitely helps be more kind and patient with them. Empathy and lots of love, goes a long way in keeping them hale and hearty!

    #12 Thank you for the the comment, @David B. Grinberg. That is great advice. I should include this in my post. Listening to music is an extremely relaxing practice, before going to sleep. I guess that is why we have the tradition of singing lullabies to babies, to put them to sleep. Something very intrinsic to how human beings respond to music has the led the way to music being such a great tool to use for unwinding before dozing off. I was introduced to the concept of white noise sometime back and found it to be an effective aid to falling asleep.

    Thanks, Proma, for the excellent information and advice which is critically important to the health and well-being of every person. I agree that it helps a lot to start "shutting down" about an hour prior to one's designated bedtime. That means no electronic devices, as you note, including mobile phones, computers or TV.
    Personally, I find that listening to soothing music helps me fall asleep faster and take my mind off the rigors of the day and challenges of tomorrow. The bottom line here is that those who are sleep deprived will fail to function at 100% capacity, which is detrimental to one's work and other life activities. Thus, it just makes good sense to make sleep a priority for a variety of reasons. Lastly, those who just can't get to sleep and/or have insomnia should consult their doctors regarding the appropriate medication to remedy this issue.

I am sorry to hear about your insomnia and your husband's Parkinson's Disease. I understand how difficult it is as I have seen people very close to me suffering from the same. Have you tried meditating before going to bed? That is one thing that literally gives me that gentle nudge (more like a push) to fall asleep. Applying slight pressure on parts of your palm and fingers can also help induce sleep by relaxing the nerves. I will get back to you with more information, if you think that could help.

    I agree @Proma - sleep is a very important issue for many people today. It is almost like we are trying to deny being human by being able to stay awake all day and night. we have forgotten the richness of sleep, of dreams, of allowing our sleep to help us process what has occurred during the day, so we can wake up with new insight. Sleep is like eating. We can not live without eating and drinking - we love to eat and prepare meals. We can do the same with sleep by creating a ritual that suits our selves. Whilst eating is often a group activity, sleep and preparing for sleep is more a time for ourselves.

    The last 15 mins of the day, alone all by yourself. Critical moments in our continuing health.

    If i could add a thought to this critical 15 mins.

    Judgement is all around us during the day. Reviewing and deciding right and wrong will sometimes load us up in the judgemental wave.

    Take a few moments to recognize that ideas can twist and turn without judgement of others. Separate the journey of wisdom from the people.

    #1 I agree, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher. Reading makes me sleep better. Meditating before sleep makes me fall asleep mid-meditation. The peace and calm it brings is too tantalizing to continue in a state of awareness. Television helps a lot when it comes to fleeting thoughts as they help a lot in diverting our attention. Especially the late night tele-shopping programs with their repetitive ads, help even more to lull people to sleep. Thank you for your comment!

    Everyone should heed your advise about sleep, for once that door is cracked it's hard to shut @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal! Healthy sleep is essential to maintain; a battle I lost to insomnia since 1997. My husband has Parkinson's Disease, and it's a constant mantra to all newbies in PD to don't let that door open (eventually it does anyhoo). In sufferers, this becomes an enormous monster as they progress (degenerate); the parasomnias take over the ship! I wrote about it : https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/what-we-do-dark-parkinsons-lisa-vanderburg/
    I'm going to share your buzz with my PD groups, so many thanks!

    I used to sleep much better when I read before falling asleep, yes, even on my kindle. I have been trying to keep my phone "at arms length" and it works fairly good for the most. I fall asleep a bit earlier when I do this. Some people have incessant thoughts like a merry go round and they are hard to shut off no matter what you try. I find the TV works better when those thoughts are present, it sort of drowns them out. A good night's sleep is vital to a good day. Nice article @Proma 🐝 Nautiyal and great infographics!

    @Royce Shook, great buzz. It was filled with fun spirit. But, your right, the only thing I know to expect is Change. The world changes faster than I can keep up with is. I also find that part of the adventure. It's ironic, that I was the one once teaching my Dad how something worked. Now, my nephews are telling me how to work everything.

    #1 Interesting comment on annuities Jim, I tend to agree, but many people are drawn to them because they help to eliminate or lower risk. I know that there is a high price to pay for this level of safety, so I am like you wary of annuities but they are an option for those seeking safety and a guarantee of a level income.

    As many finicial planners have told me. “The only people that make money from annuities are the biker that sold them to you.” I have always stayed away from annuities and have made more money than they pay out.

    #4 Paul, many of us who "retire" keep busy doing some for pay, others for fun or other reasons. I believe that having a sense of purpose is a prime mover for all of us. We need a reason to get out of bed in the morning. If we have no reason, then you are spot on in that over time our brains will feel like a bowl of jello.

    @Royce Shook . There is no such thing as retirement. I guess I was lucky in having sold my company at 48 and thought, "that's it I'm retiring" That lasted 6 months until my brain akin to a bowl of jello. I 'work' in that I write commercially and not necessarily for the money but it does I think, keep me alive. None of us should effectively'retire' as all we then do is take up space!! However, thank you for a thought-provoking piece

    #1 Pascal, you are correct. The problem is that after about 10 years or so when the retiree is in his/her 80's they may not be able to work even parttime, so the crisis for those of us close to or now retired is now, but the problem for our country and our politicians is about 10 to 15 years down the road. Politicians are not longterm thinkers in many countries so they will not address the problem until it is way too late.

    Various countries are facing or will face a pension crisis especially those where state pensions are traditionally relied on upon, more of us will work longer probably part time and in a different capcity
