Im glad your an optimist, but that statement sounds a bit bitter. I don't know what age group your looking at meeting but none of my single mates are in that group.

Sorry it didn't work out for you. Keep on trying. You have to kiss a lot of frogs to find a prince.

So far the only single sailing guys ive met are exactly as Ive described.
Maybe they are the the ones my mother warned me about and all the rest are princes.

Reminds me of a line from a stand up comedian doing a gig at Womens Royal Airforce party.

'Good evening Ladies, I am your entertainment for this evening'. 'Did you know that 98% of all the girls in the RAF are considered to be extreemly attractive'?
'What a pity the other 2% are all here tonight'

My wife is Swedish and when she heard the news and how badly he was beat up she looked at me and said ... See what would happen!!


Anjou I do agree there are many old salts out there and we have met some very weird ones on the water... maybe look on land.

The active lively guys I know tend to be very active skiing, sailing, kayak etc. Maybe if you meet an active land guy you could develope your sailing life together. Although they could still be set in there ways. Actualy I seem to read a lot of posts about guys who are single because they want to sail so much.

Well, I could introduce you to my son’s father-in-law. He’s recently divorced! He has lots of money! He has a boat! But, mostly he lives on 10 acres in the country because, as it was explained to me: "Kenny can’t have neighbors."

Never mind.

Aw Gawd, now we are into matchmaking.
Have you ever seen 'Lentil' with Barbera Streisand?

I hope you guys dont try and stitch me up with a guy twice my age.

Kenny sounds a real live wire eh?

Hey, you share some personal stuff with a bunch of great guys on a sailing forum and lo and behold, they want to help and fix up your "problem" - hello, thats what we do But if you just want to tell someone without fixing it - that what your GF's are for .

Reminds me of the single liveaboard sailor who sees his single liveaboard sailor buddy motoring his ancient 26 footer in to anchor one afternoon with a bright shiny new RIB tender in tow.
"Where'd you get that amazing new tender from, buddy?" the first sailor asks.
"Well I was just lazing on the beach after lunch, when this stunning young lady motors up in the RIB, parks it on the beach, comes up beside me, takes off all her clothes, and whispers in my ear: 'Take what you want!'"
"Good choice", replies the first sailor. "The clothes probably wouldn't have fit"...

That's awesome. I just love being pigeon-holed because of my gender. Thanks very much.
