Up close and personal: A safari game drive is an excellent way for singles to break the ice Cruises and rail journeys are often good options for those travelling alone. Great Railway Journeys says that 20 to 25 per cent of its groups can be people travelling alone. It also run trips just for singles — with no supplements — to five different destinations, including Lake Garda and Venice, and Lake Bled in Slovenia.
Trawling the net, I found the Mistral hotel in Chania, Crete, which offers a variety of special-interest holidays, such as painting, and song and dance, for single people. Safaris can also be brilliant for people travelling alone, as bouncing around in the back of a Land Rover is a great way of getting to know people who share a common passion for wildlife. Travel One offers a safari holiday for single people, while Aardvark Safaris says it will tailor one of its safaris to accommodate single travellers.
Festivals are also very friendly places to go on your own. On my trips to India, I have found Homestays ma very good base as you are essentially staying as a guest in a private house and your hosts make it their business to help you in any number of different ways. Another good option is to study something. This year I browsed the net and ended up at a tiny, isolated hotel, La Bella Baita, high up in the Piedmont Alps in Northern Italy, learning all about local food.
I spent most of the days exploring on my own, and one afternoon I was taken by my hosts to a local festa where I danced to the music of a hurdy-gurdy, before going back to the hotel to eat with the owners. I describe myself as slim, blonde, widowed, easygoing and ready for a new relationship all true and give myself the name Life Enhancer. Before you can contact the men they suggest, you must subscribe.
The men I find First up is Nottinghillbilly, pictured with messy hair, a beard and in a leather jacket. I then peruse Oddball, Goopile and Naked Plumber. A guy called Wayne winks, but on his profile I discover he is recovering from having his brain tinkered with on the NHS, and much as he sounds lovely, I need someone straightforward at this stage in my life. LondonArty looks younger than some so I try him. He responds by asking me to come up and see his Samurai Swords.
But I agree to meet Unicorn, a year-old retired construction engineer, for a coffee in the West End, where we both work. How it works Being a Guardian reader, I assume this will be dominated by intelligent, solvent and liberal Guardian readers. I upload the same photo and answer the same questions and details as I did on Match. It is the Guardian after all. A feature called Your Matches creates a list of compatible, potential dates.
The men I find On day one, I get six matches who are all in their fifties, rated an overall 75 per cent match with me. That means we have interests in common and fit into the right age bracket. Only Corona emails, saying he is solvent, a widower, and likes Daft Punk and Bowie. Not bad, I think. Ellyleadguitarist sends a good email: As suitable traffic has not been forthcoming on the other sites, and now feeling more confident, I upload a different photo, this time wearing a hat.
The men I find I have lots of banter and flirting with men, then a long interaction with Peter from Royston. He implies he has enough money not to work but is bored being single and would like a companion to share his holidays and life with. We have similar taste in music and talk about the joys of travelling around the States. I feel more comfortable on this website than any of the others.
