Meanwhile, I'm looking for a female companion. Mid-20s, tall, trim, firm. No dingbats or snowflakes. Employed with a good job, makes enough money to support me. Must be intelligent and logical. I'm OK if she has a catamaran, but I'd prefer if she has a 45-50' monohull with sugar scoop. And she'd better know how to cook.

Until she comes along I'm going to stick with the one I have now. I wonder if it will be a long wait.

Unless you're a 1%er, fat chance! And I'll bet she'll still will not cook.
Love is just another 4 letter word!

Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

had a good friend who ended up marrying a beautiful woman in St. Thomas, quite the lady's man! She was a multi millionaire, had a Lagoon 52, farm in Virginia. He left her and never took a dime! I met her and she was absolutely beautiful and quite pleasant!
The stuff that I have witnessed in my brief tour on earth...

You can make this stuff up, but real life can twist your brain sideways...

Ah ... companionship and love ...

Mrs. Trump was asked if she would have married The Donald if he were not a wealthy man. She responded with her own question: Would he have married her if she were not beautiful?

Me: I'd like to find a gal* that wakes up wondering about Comparing techniques used for eye splicing double braid polyester (=Class 1) as well as doing all the other stuff I can't do. Large aluminum yacht a plus!

They cant see the long game where the adults raise the children as a couple, children leave the nest, couple grow old together and go sailing, this is a sailing site of course .
Most people live 75yrs and to base ones whole life on10 to 15 yr child raising period seems short sighted.
I think you have forgotten what can happen in close families. After the kids are grown, the grand kids arrive, and now, going sailing is even more difficult then when it was the kids at home. It may be a short time in child raising, but until you die, either you stay close to the grand and great grand kids, or you wait on the boat for them to come and visit. Mother/grand mother/wife will rarely choose the boating/cruising life over any issue.

Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

My take away from the last few pages are this...

1. Don't make this a lot harder than it needs to be.

2. Quit skipping ahead and worrying about step 842 when you are not even on step 1 yet.

3. Painting both genders with a very broad brush is not helpful and will not make you feel better about yourself or your situation.

4. As many have pointed out already... Single and hopeful / open to marriage is better than being married and wanting to be single. It's not even close.

Two overarching themes that are repeated often within the thread...

1. There are women (and men) who are bitter and cynical due to prior relationships / marriages / life and they expect whoever is with them to "pay for crimes you didn't commit" or they want you to put on your superhero tights and cape and proceed to rescue them from the hell of their own creation.

Hurt People, hurt people. When you run into these types... Keep on trucking down the road. Why or how they got that way isn't your problem to solve and no sane person would give them the time of day.

2. There are many women (and men) who are perfectly happy to be land lovers. Their reasons are valid and vary from kids, family, enjoy the rat race, career, dislike water / boats, etc.

Whatever the reason, they do not need your permission or approval. Keep looking until you find someone who either already feels the way you do or comes to love it after experiencing it with you.

Nothing has changed. What has worked very well since man has walked the face of the earth still works today!

Step 1 - Walk up and introduce yourself to all the single woman you find attractive and would like to get to know better.

Step 2 - If after having a conversation with them you are still interested, ask them out. If they say no go back to step 1 and repeat until one (or several) say yes.

Step 3 - Show them a good time.

Step 4 - If you lose interest or she does... go back to step 1.

Step 6 - When you finally meet someone and you both develop feelings, care about, value, respect and love one another... the rest of steps all the way through 842 sort themselves out in a normal, natural and healthy way. This is the fun part, not this complicated, difficult and painful process that some have alluded too within the thread.

Why worry about or discuss step 842 when neither of you know each other and for some, you do it prior to your actually first date. The whole "where is this going" or better yet "you have to give up everything you know to go sailing with me for X number or months or else" isn't very attractive nor effective.

Slow down fellows. What would you think and what would your reaction be if a woman you just started dating told you that if you want to continue to see her that you have to get her pregnant? Yeah... not good!

Patience and timing is everything. If you give her the opportunity to to get to know you and for the relationship to develop like you should... she might very well come to that decision that she wants to sail away with you and want it just as much as you do.

Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

To add to this thread, and speaking from experience

It is (far) easier to turn a nice (yet intelligent and adventurous) girl to sailing, than to woo and wend to your way a single sailing female.

I say this on my honeymoon, from on board our shared 32' cruiser/racer

Zeehag, I'm not a frequent poster and not on your radar. But of all the people I have ever seen post on any internet forum, you would be my choice if faced with the question " Who would you choose if allowed to meet only one person from the internet?"

This is said in the most complimentary way possible.

I might not like you, but that list is small so unlikely. It's 50/50 you would dislike me (maybe already do). I wouldn't tell you how to sail or touch your stuff or try to bait you into an argument. I'd just sit and listen because your perspective and outlook on life is at the same time humorous, maddening, educational, and cringey.

Keep on keeping on!
