It can work the other way around also.
Trust me. I know...

What does the mind of a SaltMonkey have to say...

Read my back posts here...

But the true definition is only one...twin flame or twin soul found in mythology.

that is why you should know the difference between primary and secondary values. Successful should not be more important than being nice.

Gada girl and SaltyMonkey have good lists.

I just need someone who will be nice to me. For me that wraps up most of the lists and adds some other behaviors I find attractive.
Dave. Don't you think that you should inform all the fine ladies here that you have already found that? Don't give us false hope.

Sure a guy with that successful edge is preferrable to a dork, but as with all things in life, its a compromise and ballance of many things.

Ive dated some high flyers and wealthy guys, but that can often lead to arrogance and elitism, which arnt attractive qualities. One married guy I once knew was very down to earth, he was a builder and appeared very ordinary, yet he had a presense and humble confidence that stood out.

Absolutely Judy. I thought I had done that previously. Perhaps not.

Some of success in relationships is timing. Some is self-awareness. But those aren't values ...

For what it's worth, I have left several new sailing women (still friends) available for you other guys during my search. *grin*

Agree. Actions speak louder than words and backing up your words with actions speak volumes about any person.

Just don't want to look like one of those guys trolling outside a relationship.

Janet's great - quite aside from all the great relationship stuff she's done a bunch of overnights, some coastal hopping, and one passage with me. She's still adjusting to passagemaking, but her biggest complaint was not being able to do her share of the cooking. Fortunately she doesn't have any complaints about my food. I can actually sleep soundly while she is on watch.

Soulmate? I don't believe in the soul, nor in karma, so I guess I'm not looking for one. Guess I"m looking for a mate, who is, as Gadagirl says, NICE.

Yea... what's up with the "nice" women out there???? I get accused of being a "nice" guy, over and over and over... All I seem to find is women'z looking for @$$ hats...

Just when you think things are on track... they drift off and find some AH... and leave you flat, scratching your head.

Come on "nice" women, what gives??? There are some awfully nice guy's out here... don't just look and leave, give it a shot. What have you got to loose? Are you more willing to take big risk with an AH... but not with a nice guy???

Please explain....
