Re: Can 2 people live aboard and just be friends?

I Tried it with Charlize Theron.

It worked, for a while...

I Also tried with a lesbian girl. Perfect vacation 1mo long, but no sex, that great friendship... many hopes broken..., now, l wouldn't want her onboard, anymore, no matter what. :-)

Nothing to add, except can't believe this has gone on for 7 pages.
Get a real boat-mate and video pal - a dog...
Adding this hoping we get to page 8!

I mean if you even have to ask this question, you know that the outcome won't be pretty.

You want to live with a former lover, in a space smaller than most bedrooms. Where you can hear, see, smell, & feel everything about the other person 24/7. Down to routinely seeing them nude, having the commode but mere feet from your head. And you say that you're okay with her bringer her lovers home?

There are words for that, most all of them emasculating, & none speaking well of character. The kindest of which is that you'll be her door mat.


Odds of this working: Pretty the same as a factory original 1963 Volkswagen Bettle winning the Indy 500.
You Sir!
Have an incredible grasp of a lost attribute by many folks today, common sense!
Then there is the issue of making emotional decisions based on our testosterone level, guilty!

Sounds like the making of a reality show...

Plenty of sailing couples have strained there realationships sailing together, so sailing with an ex will be very interesting. I imagine you could be the next big YouTube stars.
Cheers
I'm with Fore and Aft on this one... so many cozy couples that only post the "good" videos, when all is happy go lucky, even the ones that show that something went wrong, I am sure they heavily edit out the "Why did you put that $%*& in the head" or other caught on film emotions. Now for my answer, would you still want her on board after you stop speaking to each other? Good luck with what ever you decide, this is one that Lin and Larry should respond to!

Re: Can 2 people live aboard and just be friends?

Wifey B: Next topic on as the boat turns...Can three people live together on a boat platonically or even if two are a couple can the third remain platonic and all innocent? What if she's really hot and the girl member of the couple is bi?

Of course, no temptation on a boat for two or three. I mean why would tight sleeping quarters be tempting? Why would seeing each other nearly naked in swim suits or even naked tempt anyone? Why would weeks and months at sea and no sex for that time tempt anyone?

If figure you throw people together like that and one of two things will happen. Either they'll or they'll . I'm not just here. Like the OP's situation either they'll make or they'll Either way, I see

Re: Can 2 people live aboard and just be friends?

I have lots of woman friends. Most of the ones I'm life long friends with have been "close" friends (or ex-wives). Women make great friends and sex doesn't have to be part of it. They are nice to look at and they are more reliable as friends. Its also good to be seen in the company of women (envious male friends) and they bring a different perspective to almost any activity. I wouldn't think of playing Twister with a guy in the mix. But a woman friend, not so bad, even if it doesn't end in sex. And once in a while, you find yourself on the "same page". The reason it has worked so well for me is because I never apply any pressure. They don't feel strange, threatened or obligated. I am also a good listener and sometimes that becomes your most important role. People that have to live in defined roles are missing out. Hanging out with women avoids the testosterone driven conversations that frankly get tiring over time. Still have plenty of male friends, but I enjoy my platonic female friendships more.

Wifey B: Gord says he doesn't know. Can we convene a Grand Jury? Maybe it was Gord, but I suspect the two girls and they pulled off the perfect crime. Everyone suspects, but no one can prove.

Re: Can 2 people live aboard and just be friends?

Considering how well the women still get along, my vote would be for them also.

This.

I think one of my most tortured years of my life was having to be in close quarters just for most of the daylight hours with a girl who wanted to be "just friends". Not fun!
