cheap holidays are boring if you go alone.
surely the point of going alone is so that you can meet people there? after all, it helps to keep what goes on in [insert holiday destination] stays in [insert holiday destination].

About "Properties in former East Germany can yield 20% easily."

20% yield in euros that have declined 20% in value against the CHF recently? So I would have made nothing?
depends if you hedged against the FX.

You would only do that if you thought there was an FX risk. If you did think that then you would be better off buying suitable FX instruments, I mean instead of buying foreign property.

Re: Reevaluating my life and need advice please.

What about starting your own business with part of that money? in a while you will be hopefully sucefull enoght to get some "stable" income and then go for a mortgage.
A shop?
a bar?
a consultant agency for whatever you know to do?
Start your own company in something you love to do!

Then the spirit gets a good kicking when it gets unceremoniously dumped after a spiritual fumble.

Sorry, I've had to pick up the pieces of a friend who was hopelessly attracted to the "I'm a free spirit" types who are actually looking for a no strings attached shag.
What is wrong with no strings attached shag if you make it clear to the woman that you are not a one woman man from the get go? So your friend kept going back to "I'm a free spirit" types and you blame us instead of your friend?

Sometimes few weeks of intense relationship can be more fulfilling than years of trapped in a marriage type of relationship.

Not really. This intensity is usually physical and as you get older you'll get uglier (sorry) and no one will want what you have to offer and you'll wish you were locked into a lifetime friendship when you're sitting along in your 400k apartment.
