bully-featureOne out of every three kids is being bullied right now.  Over fifty percent of teenagers are being bullied online with more girls than boys being bullied, although boys aren't excluded from it. And there are a lot of these kids committing suicide because of it; especially over the last few years.  to those of us fifty and over, this looks like it's becoming a trend. But why?

With this younger generation so closely connected through the Internet and social media websites, they don't get any time to recover, or even have a couple of hours away from it. The barrage is constant. They can't escape it, even when they are home surrounded by their loving families. It is very tragic.

No one want to see their children or grandchildren have to suffer this kind of abuse. The children often don't talk about it. We have to learn to see the signs that the child may be experiencing some sort of trauma.

Relationships & Dating Revisited

woman-likeSince it's getting closer to Valentine's day, it's only appropriate to publish some articles based on matters of the heart. I was having a look at a new 115 page novel by Kim Harris today titled A Woman Like Me...A Man Like You: Relationships & Dating Revisited in the 21st Century.  Yes, she means revisited. The woman appears to be in her forties, and is raising her teenage son.  The advice she offers certainly is straight from the heart. She doesn't mince words.

She says she's "tired of reading books written by men telling women how to get their attention.   Somewhere along the line somebody got it twisted.   Why isn’t anyone educating our men on how to step up to the plate and be Real Men?"

Watch the interview with her below where she answers the question, "Can you really enjoy being alone."

She says in the video that being single is not a disease. And just because you're a little older doesn't mean you still don't have "it". She certainly takes the time to dispel some popular myths associated with being an older woman and single.

woman-ebookHer book, A Woman Like Me...A Man Like You, was just published on January 9th, 2013, and doesn't have any review yet. But I think if you're a woman and wondering where you fit into this 21st century dating game, this book will give you some great insights and a positive outlook. This book is being offered for free for the next 24-h8 hours, as an Amazon promotion.

For the men who are reading this... Should you get the book? No doubt the ladies will appreciate it, but what about the men? Well... if you're interested in knowing how older women who are single again are thinking these days, it wouldn't hurt. Although an entertaining and informative read, this woman has attitude too.  A good example of this is when she says, "That's the difference a woman like me makes in a man's life.   We challenge him to look at his behavior and find ways to improve it so that he can step up to us ready.   If he feels he is not quite there yet, he will step back, reassess and then try again."

Frankly, this site was built for people over 50 and living alone without a partner. As for men who choose to do this, some of us may be a little tired of hearing how a woman plans to change us, so we can "step up to the plate!" We got tired of walking on broken glass from those plates.

Relationship advice for those over fifty

heart-leave-featuredPeople fifty and over should have enough experience when to tell if the relationship needs to be over. Sadly, this isn't always the case. The idea may perambulate the conscious brain waves, but it can be hard to make a decision, and sometimes you need to have someone confirm that your thoughts on this matter aren't as far-fetched as you may wish they were.

Kathryn Alice's book Releasing a Person was first a workshop and then a bestselling CD that she created to help those suffering with the deepest attachment we face: that to another person. It has produced MIRACLES for those have used it.

Kathryn, author of the bestseller LOVE WILL FIND YOU, is the U.S.'s foremost expert on soulmates and spiritual dating. She appears in the 2012 Feature Film Secrets of Love. Her work has been featured in Psychology Today, USA Today, The New York Times, Associated Press, Body+Soul and on Montel, NBC and The Aware Show. Kathryn directed Agape's Crisis Support Team for 6 years & teaches in the U.S., Australia and South Africa. She has been married for over a decade to her own soulmate, and they have 4 boys.

She certainly seems to be a credible source. Mind you, here at 50alone, it's felt we could have dished out some pretty good advice, by telling you not to get involved in the first place. Still, it's understood that going it alone is a big lifestyle choice and an even bigger decision.

Watch the video below as Kathryn explains some of her thoughts on this.

This book will help you:

  • Relieve the pain of a break-up or divorce
  • Heal from heartbreak
  • Dissolve a pesky attachment that is putting your life on hold
  • Possibly work it out with the person you're releasing (Kathryn calls this "The Phenomenon" in the book)
  • Free yourself for the REAL love that awaits you beyond tie
  • Get beyond a "crazy love" situation that is making you miserable

alice-re-ebookThe book, Releasing a Person is free for the next 24-48 hours as an Amazon promotion. It is very long in length, but Kathryn Alice's work has helped tens of thousands go beyond heartbreak to find the love of their lives. Kathryn has worked with people from their teens up into their 80's, who have overcome love disappointment, dissolved their attachment and then found true love.

If you happen to miss this promotion; not to worry. We can setup a forum on this site to discuss relationships. I certainly don't consider myself a love guru, but after being married twice and divorced twice, I am probably capable of giving you the worst advice you ever heard; guaranteed to be fresh and entertaining.
