There has been a lot written and said about the baby boomer generation. Most of it about social security, health care issues and the like. One thing that has not been heard about much is single baby boomers. There is a segment of boomers that for one reason or the other has found themselves single at this later stage of their life.
People react to the age of 40 and above in different ways. Some long for the good ole days and would prefer to be back in their 30’s. Other people embrace the maturity and wisdom of their lives and are happier than ever.
Now there is a web site just for the single boomer that wants more and has the ability to go out and take a big bite out of life. A significant amount of single boomers find themselves at a crossroads where they could retire at an early age and/or start a new life abroad.
Retired really just means they stopped working and have the means to do so. They then have to decide what do next. This situation makes some singles very uncomfortable. For many making big life decisions is much better if there are two heads involved.
A lot of single boomers have taken the step to live, invest or travel abroad. There are major migrations to Mexico, Panama, Costa Rica and South America, Europe, and Asia. Mainly they go for better weather, low cost of living or for just pure adventure. Some want to escape the rat race and reinvent themselves with a whole new set of friends.
