Hey thanks, sailorcherry! I really enjoy the PPJ section of Latitude 38, but didn't really go much further. She has lurked here but said the forum is "just not my jam". I'll recommend Lat 38. (Note to CF peeps, "not my jam" may simply be code for "I'm too busy". Dunno for sure)

Oooh a hot topic.....

My mother hated feminist. She just wanted to be a good housewife. And they told her that she was (oh so many things). She was never a victim. She raised 4 kids alone and bought 3 houses and had many lovers. She had a good life.

I once was breaking up with a girlfriend and she jumped on me and started beating me. I twisted and she fell to the floor. I escaped her apartment and was confronted by her roommate as I was running to safety. The roommate told me that if I ever hit my xxxx again that she would call the police. Nothing I could say in my defense. She and no one would believe me.

There was a girl when I worked for Intel that kept asking me to come to her house after work. She had the hots for me. I don't know why. It was really annoying.

I was married to someone who was a queen bee. She needed to be the center of social events. Her friends would call the house for her (she was never there) and comment on how I was a good dad and a single parent.

My wife of 20 years is from Ukraine. She does not understand American women.

-----------

My mother died in the love of her life's arms.

The girl I broke up with went on to find someone that she truly loved and is happy.

One night at Intel I realized that the girl that wanted me to com e home with her was a nice person. I went home with her and we dated for about a year till she moved to Eugene for a job. It was a nice relationship.

The queen bee is married and retired. She has commented to our kids that if she was not such a **** head that we would be cruising the world now.

My wife from Ukraine is a women and proud to be one. She knows what she wants and the differences between men and women are to be cherished.

-----------

We each have experiences in life that can inspire us or that can eat away at our souls. Women as victims were never part of the women in my life. Grandma shot the moose in the dude ranch in the '30s that everyone had their pictures taken with.

Power can be claimed from your achievements or by claiming your victim hood status. The women that had the most to do with my forming years were very powerful and not at all victims.

------------

Wow did I really write this? Can I actually post this?

So very true. And even if victimhood is totally justified it doesn't necessarily mean it has to be claimed. In fact, it can be a total turn-off for someone looking for a potential partner, provided they have learned how to recognize it that is.

'Not sure about the thread women, but my Admiral just shocked me. She peeked in at the videos and picked the Beneteau over the FP 40. This, after lots of time on many different cats and a couple monos, but never a wedge mono (older designs only). The wedge hull, wide transom on the Bene sold it.
I learned something today. Our new boat search just to a funky turn.

A few years ago, My wife and I were looking for a home. She chose one that required a lot of work and money. I was not to keen on it and said so. However she was set on it and in the end I bought it.

After 6 months of living in chaos with builders in and out fixing stuff... and the bank balance changing shape, and then we discovered more issues to fix, She turned to me and yelled at me..."Why did you let me buy this house!!"

I fixed the issues and sold it.

A good wife always forgives her husband when she's wrong.

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

Since we are, after all, supposed to be taking an "honest look" . . .

about single women living aboard & cruising that is . . .

including why some who might be looking for a male partner nevertheless remain single . . .

some would say the problem is that "some girls" . . .

simply want "everything in the world" . . . .

I, for one, am glad you did. Especially the bolded parts. Ironically, many women who claim power from victimhood all too often wind up giving up their greatest inherent power when it comes to men, namely their femininity & womanhood. Imho, that's why so many are unhappy and why so many guys look elsewhere for loyalty & affection.

Cyan

I've been at the dock I'm at in NE Florida for about 18 months. There are currently 2 single women on the dock. One is early to mid 20s. There is also the teenage daughter of one liveaboard on the dock. No issues that I'm aware of.

Last year there was a mid 30s nurse here on her own. She didn't have issues either
