Hello and welcome!


When I first spotted 'Doris', who features in our lovely logo (above), I couldn't help but make her our poster girl for The Association of Retired Single Women... She's energetic, she's going places, she looks like she has a whole 'bucket-list' of things that she can't wait to be, do and have in life and she has a big smile on her face!

That's what I want for you too - whether you're an 'always single' woman or, like me, you're 'single again'. I want you to have the happiest, healthiest, most vital, productive, energetic, prosperous and fulfilling retirement you could possibly have! At the same time, I want you to get the resources you need to help you balance having the kind of retirement you want and deserve to have, with planning to meet your future needs. That's what The Association of Retired Single Women is all about -

and the good news is, it's completely free to join!

In fact, you don't even need to be retired to join - if you're thinking about retirement or if you're within a few years of the traditional age for retirement, you're very welcome! All you need is the determination to get the retirement you deserve, an enquiring mind and a willingness to share your thoughts and observations with the other single women on this site.

Simply use the sign-up box on the top, right-hand side of this page and, once we've approved your application (just to make sure you're not a spammer), you'll be able to read the blog posts, watch videos, check out the resources and get involved with the discussions.

I hope you find the network to be informative and inspirational and look forward to reading your comments and thoughts on our forum. (Don't forget to come back often to find out what's new!)

Before you head off for a look around, I'm sure you'll agree that a site of this nature needs to have a couple of ground rules, so here they are:

1. Be kind and respectful. Abusive language, name-calling, insults, harassment, spamming, flaming, baiting, personal attacks and general nastiness aren't welcome here and will get you banned from the site. So will the posting of offensive material, so please keep it clean!

2. Unless you have been invited (by me) to become a subject expert, advertising your business, products and services is not permitted anywhere on this site (including any comments you leave on other members' profiles or blog posts). You can, however, mention your business on your own profile page.

Thanks for reading. Hope you enjoy the site and, if you experience any problems, please report them by sending me a direct message.
