Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

I just like balance. I was married for 31 years so it's good to be single for the same amount of time. 28 years to go.

And here you have another:

Actually it is a good idea but I doubt that it works even if I had read some favorable critics on this one. I wonder why there is not one for globoboys?

Goat - I don't blame you for staying single. Most of us women have also dated one too many goats in the past

Well, man, how old are you? What are your positive attributes? What are you looking for? Let's see if we can get something going for ya here! Brag on yourself a bit. You started this. Lots of women like cruises, too, so you never know what might happen once you provide more detail.

Well seeing I'm the Original Poster,
this is my thread and with the power vested in me, I hereby decree that I, "Manawatuman" sole owner of my universe and all whom sail in her, change thy thread name to "Rock The Boat" for singles to mingles.....

I'll start...
Hello ladies of the opposite sex. Im a 50yr old male about to embark on his 1st midlife crisis. After realizing life on land is crazy and repetitive I've decided to give it all up and sail the Caribbean in a life of no stress and total relaxation. I read the book.... looking for a positive girl who still sees the world as a enchanting mystical fabulous playground through innocent eyes. And can sail, navigate and do the weather forecast thingy.

Re: Dating sites for sailors looking for companionship and love

Like previously suggested,I'd suggest starting or joining a Meetup group,or the local yacht/boat club. Volunteer.Won't get if you don't look.
Who knows?

I met my wife the second day she moved to my city.
It was one of things- we saw each other from across the room and that was it. We talked all day,half the night and she crashed on my couch.
I lied (to screen out possible opportunism) and told her that I was a part time hired captain for a 50' boat but that was actually mine.

Turns out she is from a boating/fishing family so loves nothing more than going out on the boat,is an absolute sweetheart,and ditched her modelling career as she didn't like it and she was too shy to be walking around on stage in a string bikini. No joke,Victoria's Secret was after her.

Anyways, the morning after we met,I asked her to marry me and she asked me what took so long LOL.
Were married 24 hours after we met,and have been inseparable since.

How bloody lucky can one guy get?

So it can happen,you have to get out,look and put out the positive vibes. We have noticed that most women walk around with arms crossed and RBF.
With their body language saying 'leave me alone" , they wonder why guys won't talk to them...
