I believe Scott Peck nailed the process of courtship and attitude displayed by both sexes and how the feelings change after marriage.

However, I must also add that finding out he was a serial adulterer during his career with his patients did not sit well with me or the profession. The vulnerability of patients is not to be exploited.

Quite right, weavis. If you can tolerate woo-woo, the book is "Affirmations" by Laura Day.

CF's a little like ham radio in that I am not sure I have the words to avoid the censors in saying "some need not applyi."

True honesty awaits the lack of censorship. Not the only ship that I had ever seen. [Ooops! did it again. No G & S allowed, either.)

Re: Search for 1st mate keeper

Good to hear there're relationships working in the cruising world. Sure it's tuff and all boats get small at times.
Standards there for a reason.
Everyone is sooooo much help and lol with some replies.
Be great to find one who can take the lead, teach me a few things, be there with me on the dance floor and the helm.
Another day in the Capts log / cruises forum
Everyone have a great day!

Try this:

10% of conflicts are due to different opinions. 90% by the tone of voice.
Raise your words, not your voice. It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder.
