Thanks, Sea Dreaming, but I think most people are missing the point. Solo is not a limitation; our attitudes are limiting. I am doing everything I want in my life, and I'm single, and sail solo. I get help when I need it and sail with friends whenever I want to or they ask, but being single is NEITHER LONELY NOR LIMITING.

Not sure he meant you. I would have to agree with him in some cases when i was dating. It was a phrase i used often after a 20 minute coffee date.
Being single and sailing solo are two totally unrelated subjects, as you have pointed out. Often when sailing with new crew ( read: can I have a ride on your boat) it would have been easier and often more pleasurable alone.

Re: Single, Female, and living aboard?

not limiting--exactly--i get to see that which I wanna see, not only what the other one desires. and so --much less limiting.
not lonely--life as it is rocks.
life with others can suck massively.
choose your poison, and lie in your made bed. i love my life, and would not change it for anything in the world.

Gamayun..
Its just a case of if I can't manage it.. so you should not be able to..
Different is dangerous which is why four people on one boat will call the one person on the other boat a threat.
Human insecurities.. let it drift into your wake..

Perhaps, and I appreciate the thoughts, but to keep beating this horse, being single is a choice and not a disease state. Nothing wrong with a woman (or man) who chooses to be single ---- no matter what other people think is the reason or the cause!

I asked my NSA pals to run a check on you, G, and they came up with this:

"An attractive single subject who likes 'Diving, sailing, kayaking, biking, reading, being lazy.'

They couldn't confirm beer drinking/pot smoking but it sounds like we're 90% sympatico from the jump. I'd like to ask what's yer sign?, but I'm too cool for that. I have 3 tool boxes aboard, and a road-worthy box trailer full of toys.

Wanna play around?:flower s:

Yes, exactly. I enjoy challenging the paradigms from time to time.

It use to really piss me off, well intentioned members of the sailing community trying to pair me up with someone while all I wanted was where I was at.
