    Hi Folks,

    In April 2005, Senior Bachelor was launched on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and the "Mission Statement" was "One Man's Search For Romance and Adventure." As most of you know, a lot has happened since then!!! A worldwide audience of well over 100 million people in more than 100 countries saw the segment on Oprah and I received in excess of 25,000 e-mails from women all over the world interested in knowing more about the Search and Journey. For the benefit of new readers of the Newsletters, over 2,000 courageous and adventurous women sent in videotapes and biographies.

    Within a few months of the launching on Oprah, it was very apparent that there was a much (MUCH) larger picture. I was receiving hundreds of e-mails every day from single women 45 and over with basically the same message. They, too, were trying to find their soul mate, and to be in healthy, loving, committed relationship. And, like me, they were not having any luck. In my pursuit for my soul mate I had the help of not only the original broadcast with Oprah in April, but also an article in People Magazine in June, and then the rerun of the Senior Bachelor segment in late August. The women who had contacted me seeking a relationship did not have those advantages. Then it hit me. There was a much greater mission than mine. One that could help and give hope and inspiration to literally millions of single women (and men) 45 and over all over the world. As I was conducting my Search, at the same time I could help others in their search. That's why many months ago the Mission Statement changed from "One Man's Search For Romance and Adventure" to "Promoting Romance, Adventure and Recognition for People 45 and Over."

    I knew from day one that my my Search and Journey was going to end on or before June, 2006. One way or another! Hopefully it would end in finding my soul mate. Seeing as there never was a "Senior Bachelor 2" planned, that would be that. Or so I thought until all of those wonderful messages.

    In the upcoming Newsletters, I will discuss some of the truly amazing ways that Senior Bachelor has been of so much benefit for so many people.

    Best regards!

    Hello from Hilton Head

    I thought some R&R would be good for RR so I flew from the West coast to the East coast last Friday for my annual visit here with good friends. My next doctor's appointment is in one month, and my feet were getting itchy.

    Hilton Head Island is off of the coast of South Carolina and about 40 miles above Savannah, Georgia. HHI is known for its many golf courses and tennis courts. The permanent population is around 30,000 which can swell to the hundreds of thousands in the summer months. I like to visit in the Spring or Fall when the weather is great and much fewer tourists. I have been visiting here for 20 years and highly recommend it as a fun spot to visit.

    Funny Stuff Sent by Readers:

    A sweet grandmother telephoned Mount Sinai Hospital. She timidly asked, "Is it possible to speak to someone who can tell me how a patient is doing?" The operator said, "I'll be glad to help, Dear. What's the name and room number?"

    The grandmother in her weak tremulous voice said, "Holly Finkel, Room 302."

    The Operator replied, "Let me check. Oh,good news. Her records say that Holly is doing very well. Her blood pressure is fine; her blood work just came back as normal and her physician, Dr. Cohen, has scheduled her to be discharged Tuesday."

    The Grandmother said, "Thank you. That's wonderful! I was so worried! God bless you for the good news." The operator replied, "You're more than welcome. Is Holly your daughter?"

    The Grandmother said, "No, I'm Holly Finkel in 302. No one tells me shit."

    The Senior Bachelor Cruise- Book Early!

    Things are heating up with the Alaska Cruises! I do plan to keep my "date" with all of you and host these two incredible Senior Bachelor kick off cruises. We have lots of fun things in store which we will be sharing with you shortly. Let's just say that, even if you have cruised before, you will come back saying you have never been on a cruise like this before!!

    I exchanged emails with Shawn, our Personal Cruise Consultant, and she wants me to remind you that these two cruises are in the "peak" of the Alaska cruising season. They are very popular in their own right- much less with the added attraction of having us party-ers on board! So please start checking your travel calendar and, if you think there is a chance you want to go, contact her ASAP. Your deposit goes directly to Holland America Lines and is completely refundable up to 75 days before the cruise. People seem to book the better cabins first so at least call her to check availability.

    For information about the Senior Bachelor Cruise, click here! Remember to send me an email at if you need a cruise cabin mate to save the single supplement. We've already matched up a whole bunch of people and I will be able to help you even while on the Journey. Or you can contact our Personal Cruise Consultant, Shawn, at or call 1-800-355-3017 Ext. 4294 Mon- Fri, 9:00AM to 6:00PM, PST.

    I love hearing from you about your experiences with PerfectMatch! I share them only with the writer's permission- usually given enthusiastically because they are excited to share their success. Fits nicely with our New Year's Resolution theme:

    From Marti- "Richard,

    Want to tell you about my success with Perfect Match. I joined at the same time I started planning my trip to Chicago to meet you. David and I emailed a few times, then started two-hour phone calls each night for a couple of weeks, then met in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan immediately after Chicago (my Chicago "tour" included a leaf-peeking week in UP). Since then we have been almost inseparable - almost four months! Incredible! So, yes, I think Perfect Match works, and I have recommended it to a couple of friends. I had tried eHarmony at my sister's insistence for a month, with no luck, and David had tried three other sites at different times over the last couple of years and actually had met a few women. We both think we got lucky on PerfectMatch!

    Good luck!
