Re: Liveaboard Dating

It's kind of funny when I had a dog that was a puppy...I had a lot of local interests.

Thats no way to live
Don't despair, Anjou. And don't lower your standards either. You must get out there and look, rather than expecting Mr. Right to come along. Also, he may not be obviously visible as Mr. Right. Look beneath the surface for the important characteristics that will allow you to be happy for the long term.

Good luck.

I lived on board back in 86 a 42ft Trojan. Back then the mere mention of living on a boat was all it took for a date. Like telling a gal you ride a Harley. of course not all want to ride on it, and even less am i willing to put on it. But the mysticism about it all, well it works. I just can't imagine the average lady saying "you live on a boat, no way will i date you" verus, "you live on a boat, can i see it"

My Experience was clearly that living on the boat drastically increased my dating life. (Chick magnets: Bright red convertible sports cars, harleys, camping and Boats, all rank in the top, and all below the consideration for wealth) They all show a state of mind and desirable charactor statement

Change your address. Fish heads and rice here. I couldn't afford the dating scene in California or Australia. Dinners out. Nine dollar drinks. "Oh, honey, lets go to Italy in May." That killed me. She paid her own way of course. But half was still a small fortune. Could have bought a new dink and outboard!

Re: Liveaboard Dating

I'm SOOOOOO glad I don't have to date.
When I met my wife 18 years ago, she very quickly became
my best friend. No matter where we are in life, we're happy.
I married way out of my league.

Re: Liveaboard Dating

Likewise, Bob, my wife is my best friend, but I DO have to date... we often have "date night," and if the food and wine are just right, getting lucky is a virtual certainty.

Re: Liveaboard Dating

I was selling one of my boats back in the 90's to a really good looking gal who had just broke up with her drunk bf, 3 docks down. She hinted very heavily that I should keep the boat and her and I take off. It wasn't what I was looking for at the time (what an idiot). She ended up putting a down payment on it until her father came up with the rest of the loot. A week later asked for her deposit back and that she met somebody new and was engaged! It takes all kinds I guess...
