So where can I go rent a motorcycle so I can find a young man trained to take care of me the way I should be?

Was married to a wonderful woman for 30 years. I wanted to go cruising...she didn't. Now I know why divorce is so expensive... 'cause it's worth it!

There might be selective bias in this question. Ie, do single people spend more time and freedom to spend on CF? (Me, I'm married 11 years)

In all fairness you can remove the word young woman and insert young man and it is also very true. The one big difference would be that the D.R. young men are very chauvinistic about male/female roles. But they are easily trained. And also very athletic and whatever the male version of gorgeous is.
- - One the favorite "tours" in Luperon is the 7 waterfalls. You hike up a river to a cascade of 21 waterfalls - 7 of which are accessible. We normally take 5 or 6 couples (including singles) and change into swimsuits at the base pool. Then you swim to the first cliff wall of about 15 feet of height. There are at least two young exceedingly good looking, muscular D.R. males guides there that grab hold of your upreaching hand/arm and lift you up the rock wall face to the next pool. I have seen these guys straight arm lift a 50 year old, 100kg woman up the cliff.
- - At the next pool you have to make like a salmon and swim upstream to the next cascade. The current is strong, but not that strong. But for some reason the women all opt to "ride" on the back of the guides as he swims them to the next wall. This preference seems more prevalent than the water current requires . . . .
- - So yes, rent a bike from Jose and take a few lady-friends with you and you will also find "old-fashioned" hunks who will cater to your wishes and desires from just plain fun to anything else. All the other caveats and considerations mentioned about "outside the USA" females equally applies to these young men.

¿Su papá dueño de una fábrica de cerveza?

The other great beers are Bohemia and one that has the kick of a bull - Brahama. Dominicans drink more beer than rum. You can find out more at: Cerveza/ Beer and Vino/ Wine made in Dominican Republic

I want to clarify that post (above).

I wasn't referring to intimacy (it was called to my attention that it appeared that way). The way I think I should be treated is as a true best friend, help mate, sharing chores, helping with kids.... all the things I never had in relationships.....

Rerlationship problems usually stem from unfulfilled expectations. Some men don't have a clue what women want, and vice-versa...

Who could hang with this schedule, although I'd like to find a wonderful woman who could:

2 weeks on, 2 weeks off in the Oilfields, all year-round. Summer, live in Alaska and ride a Harley all over hell's 40 acres, Lower 48 included. Winter, liveaboard a 41' Beneteau in St Martin, still working the 2 weeks on - 2 weeks off.

- - I think you have hit the bulls-eye about "unfulfilled expectations." And it is the unvoiced or implied expectations that usually come back to bite.
- - Problem is "straight" human males and females younger than Willy Nelson most usually have one shared activity foremost in their libidos. I would hazard that to find what you are looking for a fellow adventurous female would be a better choice. It is the same with men, a best friend is usually another man.
- - From somebody who has also achieved Willy Nelson's final declaration, true best friends among a straight male and female rarely happens under the age of about 70 or so.

I heard that single sailors must keep a massage table and wine in the cockpit at all time...that we must have conversation and understanding.
