Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

I used to belong to a Yacht Club in Alameda, CA. We had a program where we advertised free sailing and sailing lessons for women. Dubbed, "Women for Sail." The interested skippers then took the ladies out sailing and sometimes on the club overnight trips to other clubs in the Bay. It was a rousing success we met the girls/women and they got to check out the skippers with little to no further commitment. It worked for all and many of the ladies became club members, one of which even wound up as the club Admiral. Many of them stuck around and bought boats. A better way to meet than in a bar I think.

Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

I always loved it when I lived on my boat in the US and had a date come over. "Oh...this is like an RV". I knew then the date was doomed!

Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

Why not find the soul then introduce the love of sailing? I think one of the things my mate loves about me are thé things I have introduced her to.

Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

I met my guy online. Just an ordinary dating site. I didn't sail yet but "met" many who did.

No matter what you do, just do it to have fun. Don't take dating seriously. "Serious" come after spending time with someonè. Just spend time getting to know others. Plan some dates that are fun and not too personal.

I met a lot of folk who seemed to take online dating as a hook up matcher. That wasn't my thing but I still found plenty of dinner, mini golf, movies, plays and concert companions. Lots of folk looking for something to do without making a big deal of it. I think I spent a year with a new date every night if I wanted it. If you don't take dating seriously you feel freer to be yourself and talk about ýour interests. Don't hold back now! I estimated there were about 40,000 men in my area, of similar age and status. Surely there would be a few who shared my interests? Yup. Quite a few really. I have kept one of those dates for 6 years now.

Quit looking for "an angle" like specialty sites. Take the pressure off yourself and just have fun. Go ahead. Invite your dates for a sail. Get out of your own head worrying about finding people to like you, know you are fabulous, and put your self into getting to know someone else. Weird idea huh?

It's really funny thouģh, the lonely hearts clubs are full of people who try really hard to "fit", and in doing so they hide themselves. The best remedy for that is to not hide yourself and don't be shy about knowing what you want. Just refuse to accept anyone who does not offer you what you seek. Including be willing to sail. It's OK to say, this isn't working for me after the first date. Go ahead date several at once. Just have fun with it all. You will find that special person when you suddenly realize you keep inviting them back. No rush to comMIT or get a commitment. Just have fun trying it all out.

Ps, just noticed the comment about land lubbers...maybe it's not the land, perhaps it's rushing them with pronouncements about your plans. If you are going soon, they must realize you are leaving before they are even sure of you at all. Better to run than be ditched!

They only mix if you want babies!

Women need their space, hygiene, clothes, food, security, sleep and relationships.
Some things are not synonymous with sailing, especially off shore!
Sacrifices are a must. And the older you get, the harder it gets!
