Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

This was a very entertaining thread to read! The original poster is obviously very lost as to his go forward plan and obviously relying on one of us to draw the map. What I gathered from his writing is this: He has a junked out sailboat that he is attempting to utilize as a baited trap for the females of our human species. Since he is not really sure how to go about fixing it he is looking for cheap laborers to do it for him. Like minions I guess? Meanwhile, as his minions are hard at work he intends to get a box truck?! Lol lol. He said box truck right? No doubt to collect all of the women he intends to take out to the middle of the ocean. Not just any women , but young nubiles.... He said he was divorced right? One can only wonder why? Lol

Hi all, Came to post a question on a different subject, saw this thread and had to jump in! For starters, I "resemble" the remark above! I recently received my medicare greetings in the mail so I've got a few years on the author of this thread. I've been living aboard as a single for 15+ years. I was married when I got my first boat (a 30 Newport), she got the boat in the divorce (whole 'nuther story) I bought a 25 footer, all I could afford and have been happy and snug as a bug ever since... got over the woman real quick, but couldn't get over loosing the boat. That said, I've noticed (since I've been in the heartland and on both coasts) that meeting a cruising soul mate is much easier when you're hanging out where cruising boats and cruising people are. I wasted a lot of time meeting women on cruising sites or ashore until it dawned on me that it made no sense to start relationships with women who did not share the same passion for my chosen life style. Those relationships did not all end badly, but, they all ended. I have since been content to live my dream and am doing so without expectation. If I find my first mate along the way, then I'm all the better for it. If I never find someone to share my vessel, I am content that I can get up when I want, stay out as late as I want, come home when I want, go where I want when I want without having to confer with, ask permission from or grovel about. This life style is too fulfilling for minor idiosyncrasies. It's not for everyone, but for some people like me. it can be and is the be all to end all. And if there is to be a "shemale" in your life, it can only work if she embraces the same view. If in fact it's your own view.

And that's the news from Lake Woebegone ...

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

Yep.

I have a lot of female friends because I gave up with the "hunter" approach a few years ago. I never met anyone that I wanted more from until recently, and it is someone that fits the criteria that I had on my do not touch list. A fellow doctor, a passionate Cuban and a mother of a 6 year old. Oh, and limited English.

She has a wicked sense of humour. When I asked if she liked boats, she fixed me with a steely eye and said: "Please! for us they are used only once as transport to flee the country". I collapsed laughing.

She actually lives in Spain and has for a number of years and is a very happy person.

"And if there is to be a "shemale" in your life"........ I'm pretty sure you didn't mean it that way, but damn, that's funny!

Given the "communication" problems so often (but not always) inherent b'twn. men & women in relationships, I've often wondered if an actual language barrier might be helpful!

Re: Single Men Living Aboard and Cruising... an honest look.

Your qualification that the women being hot and nubile is probably why you are single. This comes across as very shallow and is not attractive. Most older men with a beautiful woman on their arm are usually wealthy. They can "afford" to be shallow.
