Cool

plentyoffish.com

I'm not adverse to a partner, it's always more fun with a friend. But resorting to the internet smacks of...I don't know...desperation. I've never had a problem finding crew or partners. They don't have to be the same person.

Yes, the internet thing is really bizarre. The replies seem to be forming into three groups. Those who think they can change me (yeah, right.). Those who think that what I put about myself was not true and that behind it I am really nice (Yeah, right again), and those who want to connect with my inner soul (!).

A general grasp of reality seems to be missing - and a common trend: they all seem to be "lefty" types. And, the most amazing thing of all, not one of them has yet really understood that my post was a bit tongue in cheek. (Well, a lot tongue in cheek really - I feel a bit guilty about it now). Lot of school teachers too - worrying, are our school teachers so lacking in perception?

Let me get this right: You initially (a) posted bullshit on Plenty of Fish (euphemistically called "tongue in cheek" in your earlier post), got (b) bullshit in return, and now (c) post your bullshit statistical analysis and assessments on CF

And then be so audacious to step back and ponder on the possibility of our school teachers as possibly "lacking in perception."

You are full of yourself. And bullshit.

Any chance of keeping this lite? I was actually enjoying the humor for awhile.

No MV. Didn't post BS. Just a tongue in cheek and not self-adoring statement. All fact. Hardly think I suggested a very scientific statistical analysis. The replies were after all, based upon what I posted.

Most regular folks have no concept of our world, there is a huge difference between living the life and spending a weekend sailing.

I had my adventures, an Atlantic delivery (7 weeks Sweden-Annapolis), LA Catalina island, Bahamas twice, from here to St Martin last yr March in rough conditions and I just came back from sailing to / from Dom. Republic in more or less the same conditions ...
40kn wind / 15ft waves ...

and I am still a happy camper at sea ...
and you know why? ...
because arriving somewhere is so wonderful ...
makes you forget lol ...

greetz to all and have a great week to come ...

You put in that you like xyz, and then it gives you a list of people with whom you are a " 99% match" and then, you go look at their details, and they are like 100% opposite of everything you said you like!!!

Jeez. My ideal match is a cross between Connie Rice and a chinese Panda Bear.

Don't you know opposites attract?
Where you been man.

No doubt you have your bona fides. I love the quote from the Latts & Atts magazine, "The difference between and adventure and an ordeal is attitude"
One of the hooks of Alaska is, the weather can be so bad for so long, that when it does finally let up, you feel like you are in heaven. It's a trick that keeps you hanging in there, and it is too beautiful and takes your breath away. Me I'm going down to the south pacific where I can get fresh mangoes and where a sunny day is an ordinary thing.

Definitely like the sunny days, if I could find a little patch of dirt to grow a salsa garden in that would be cool too! However I would be perfectly willing to trade some nice tuna for some nice garden grown veggies and then just experiment with the salsa.

It seems the difference between ordeal and adventure is latitude.
If a sailing bloke wants to attract a suitable mate, they merely have to raise the right flag on their mast
