i think the wooden boat forum people should put up another topic heading something akin to a lonely hearts dating site!!! seriously, how else is a good looking intelligent sporty woman like myself supposed to meet a good looking intelligent (wealthy!!!) sporty man who either has a boat or is seriously into boats?!!! i dont frequent night clubs and bars*and the men's profiles on the local RSVP dating site are just so damn dreary and well, plain boring. so what's a girl to do!!!??? :D

"a good looking intelligent (wealthy!!!) sporty man"
Probably because they're happy as they are, it's an increasing trend.
The demographics and income level stats narrow your choice anyhow and it's good for a man to be content with his own company.

crickeys skuthorpe, i hope you dont work in the 'relationships' industry...so much gloom and doom...heck! who cares about numbers and the such like, and if a guy is happy by himself, well he can stick by himself...i dont date hermits anyway...but he would have a lot more fun sailing with me im sure!!!

ian (bigfella) if you dont have anything constructive to say then i suggest you leave this post well enough alone...you are behaving stupidly and foolishly and embrassing yourself big time.

i have a 'keen' sense of humour but i dont appreciate your earlier sexist undertones nor you trying to act funny.

i was going to delete the entire post because of your comments but then decided that you should delete yourself from it instead. so im going to ask you now, to not post anymore comments.

while my original post may seem a trite flippant, there is as other single people will attest to, difficulty at times of meeting like minded individuals: hence, my reason for writing here.

Was that "sporty woman" or "sporting woman?"

Join a yacht club. There's always plenty of "boat widdowers" around. Consider it a target rich environment. Besides, if you are a bit reserved at first, you'll learn the ins and outs of who's worth investigating and who's a hopeless drunk!

PS: Joe, you shameless whore!

Bernadette... maybe up in the more sane area of People and Places would get someone to respond a bit more serious? Actually come to think on it I dont know if there are many single wealthy people here :confused: most seem old pharts who are content with themselves their lives and well their missus's!! :D

No seriously... up in People and Places with you my dear this down here is inviting flippant irreverant posts... while up there you may actually get a nibble or two ;) specially if you post a pic or two of yourself AND Decature!! :cool:

Anyway good luck with it and stay happy
Cheers

Funny bunch down here eh? ol Joes a pic whore Ians a bitch Skuthorpes a joker ol Bobs still mopin about that Marther Stewart sheila who dropped him so she could have a stay in one of their gaols poor buggars never gotten over bein stood up like that... but see at least one of us has the good sence to be helpful and give direction eh? :D

Bitch eh? Hmmm!

OK - a serious answer.

Relationships are no different to anything else we do - lets use business as an example. I don't care what business it is, you have people, a product/service and a marketplace. If the product/service isn't exposed to the people in the marketplace it doesn't sell. How well it sells depends on how well it is exposed. (no - I'm not being funny).

I think a bit of prioritisation is in order.

There will be foundation attributes and leverage attributes. Foundation attributes are those things that are essential to you, eg:

Male
Single
Interested in sailing

(make your own list - I'm just giving some examples)

Leverage attributes are the "nice to have"s, eg"

Good looking
Healthy
Honest
Wealthy
Intelligent
Loyal

Prioritise your two lists - and then figure out where that sort of person spends time. Then get there. If it means signing on as race crew on a plastic boat at Hamilton Island race week - so be it (don't forget to take photos of Decatur). Plastic boat sailors can always be taught the meaning of life.

Does that make sense - albeit somewhat simplified? As you know, I've been out of the dating game for over 30 years - but I'm well in the marketing game and the basics are the same. Companies that over-promise and under-deliver fail - so do those in the dating game who do the same.

Maybe you should add some other pertinent attributes; narrow down the search. Grin.

Fellas! Me a joker? Doorstop ugly? Gaaarrnn!!

(Can I help being cheeky when I've got a fortnight off?)

and, seriously, the advice men get from women when they make the same complaint - join something. I'm not a joiner either but then I like solitude. Not lonlieness, solitude. Yacht clubs can be stuffy but maybe take up skiff sailing, you know, the wet stuff. You meet a different sort of person there. Good luck

ian you are excused for your earlier shabby behaviour with your last posting.
i already have a list tucked away inside my head which gets flexed in times of spotting potential targets!!!
i will not be 'joining' any clubs as im too undisciplined for the confines of such gatherings. and i doubt i would find any comfort crewing or mingling or whatever else plastic racing boat crews do during hamilton race week as i find those 'types' rather uppity, snobbish, and about as 'plasticy' as the boats they sail. and besides, im just not that desperate.
men with boats smaller than DECATUR often get a sudden inferiority complex or they try their best to impress me with grandiose schemes of sailing off into the sunset...either way, far too extreme to be taken seriously.
so its back to bananas in the shopping trolley for me i think!!!!
here's my list by the way: this should amuse some im sure....
tall: over 6'
good looking/ruggedly handsome
no beer belly
wears aftershave
snappy dresser
no beard
no earrings
no tatoos
no swearing and frequent bodily expulsions
no pink shirts or lemon shorts
not interested in football, cricket, golf or other women!
fantastic sense of humour
has written 10 books on gaff sailing
was born on a gaff schooner
can speak french and spanish
can row a dinghy
can splice
horatio hornblower is his hero
loves his mum
blah blah blah....

Wealthy? In what way?

Seems like you just need a bank account and you can rent to your needs.

When I carried on with big money and had it to throw around all the women I met were just receptacles. Since I gave up chasing the dollar I have found a few real women. The ones looking for money are not worth a damn, Take it from a man who married a gold digger.

Maybe it's because I've been out of the dating scene for so long now, but honestly, if you think that having money is one of the attributes of a "good man" then if I were single, I wouldn't give you a second look.

Change your priorities around; you looking for a man based on his bank account is like a guy looking for a woman based on her bra size. It's all superficial and it's a sure bet for disaster.

That said I think wanting a mate that is of their own means is a good idea . Who wants to date a bum ? People always get so upset when people are looking for a mate and they think financial concerns should not be important, but when the #1 problem for most marriages is financial trouble. It seems sharing the same fiscal interests should be entwined with the same social & romantic interests. Gold Digger is not the same as being financially responsible.

Joe:
I was just basing my response off of the original post where "wealthy" was listed as a desired trait.

A friend of mine is in the process of amputating his significant other of about 4 years and she's all pissy because aparently, she hasn't spent one day by herself in her entire life. Her whole existence since birth has been dependant on either the financial or emotional moorings of others. It's disgusting, she has no concept of what "solitude" is or even HOW to live on her own.

Grow 5" or maybe 6", why not have one to spare?

Change my place of birth

Change my last name to Leather-Worth-Cunliffe-Chapelle and lie about the books I have written.

Learn Spanish

Learn to splice (or just keep practicing)

Written in the spirit of Bernadette's original post, most of you guys are way to serious.

tall: over 6'

5-10 or 5-11 depending on whether or not my brain is full at the moment

good looking/ruggedly handsome

a subjective question asking for an objective answer

no beer belly

got the belly but no beer was involved

wears aftershave

I DO NOT wear perfume…I wash regular instead

snappy dresser

I wear clean clothes mostly but do not dress for other people’s approval

no beard

I don’t like beards but I also don’t like shaving…mostly I shave


no earrings

again…I don’t dress so as to seek the approval of strangers


no tattoos

again…I don’t dress according to the whims of fashion


no swearing and frequent bodily expulsions

These two don’t belong together; I once was young and a sailor (USN), that can’t change. The second depends on a myriad of circumstances.


no pink shirts or lemon shorts

this one’s easy


not interested in football, cricket, golf or other women!

I don’t watch ball sports much but I do notice women…from a safe distance


fantastic sense of humour

this is a trick question…right?


has written 10 books on gaff sailing

an incipient writer who never gets past the second page of the first draft

was born on a gaff schooner

the boat of my dreams is a top’sl gaff schooner…two masts and under 60 feet length (I'll do good to even get near a 40 footer)


can speak French and Spanish

I can function in other countries and have done so but know very little Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, and I know only two words in Swahili: todo and hodi


can row a dinghy

it’s been a while…is that like riding a bicycle?


can splice

I’d have to break out the book again but I have done so and it held on our anchor


horatio hornblower is his hero

sorry…my father was my hero (but I've read every seagoing book I could find)


loves his mum

yes, I did and she loved me


blah blah blah....

yes, I have those days sometimes…

I know what you mean Joe but too many people measure their lives by the contents of their wallets. The strongest relationships I see are based on love and mutual respect. Sure money causes the majority of breakups but that shows how shallow the relationship was to begin with.
Being a Frenchman I have found the best relationships are based on sex and passion with a large dose of intellectual and spiritual compatibility.
If your missing any of those three your screwed and should head for the hills.
I also don't think one should go looking for a partner, just live your life and be happy with and by yourself.
I never had a decent relationship looking for it, it always just happened. Serendipity....

Big boobs, by the way, are not an "attribute" of a woman such that "shallow men will judge a woman by her boobs." Not so. Boobs are a primary interest in and of themselves; the attached woman is actually an attribute of the boobs. I personally like my boobs with a woman attached who is smart and funny and all the other good things.

OY :rolleyes: No what Im saying is people should consider MUTUAL financial compatibility as much as every other compatibility. It only makes sense, people tend to be somewhat shallow when it comes to affairs of the heart but if you gave as much consideration to how you both will LIVE than how she / he looks in a pair of jeans you might just have a relationship last a little better.

It has nothing to do with me or you it has to do with mutual compatibility in all regards including monetarily.

mmmmm well... sex and passion... a large dose of intellectual and spiritual cpmpatability... thats 4 not three Tyler ;)

Okay the first two Im not touchin... but the intellectual and spiritual compatability one I will... Possumpoop is the intellectual here very learned having a physicist for a father and an academic for a mother didnt help... a long line of smartasses she comes from... whereas I come from the direct opposite of the spectrum and its been BLOODY hard work getting to a point after nearly 25 years that we can have an intellectual conversation without me feelin like a mental midget :rolleyes: and I still feel that way when talking about anything of sygnificance with her family... as for spiritual she doesnt have a spiritual bone in her body! to damned grounded in the here and now and doesnt understand in the slightest nor wants to understand anything about spiritualism or beliefs that are not grounded in the here and now

Direct opposites

Yet we have been happily together for over 25 years now (one must include the 6 months we lived together before we married)


I also don't think one should go looking for a partner, just live your life and be happy with and by yourself.
I never had a decent relationship looking for it, it always just happened. Serendipity....

Now this is so on the money!! Exactly so... every woman Ive met and loved has been found by me simply living my life without expectation on finding a partner... if it happened it happened if it didnt well say la gare (sp?) but most people go looking searching for love partners whatever instead of living their lives to the full

Not talking about you Bernadette!! Im sure given Decature that you go about your life to the max.

I think though for the most part most people crave COMPANY more than anything else... and the company of the gender they are attracted to physically... we can go some time without the company of others but there will come a time when we need it.

Be patient be kind to yourself like yourself enjoy life and dont push your need for a partner and they will be there... trouble is most dont realize that the partner is right there already most think they have to look further afield than they do

All the best again Bernadette

Big boobs, by the way, are not an "attribute" of a woman such that "shallow men will judge a woman by her boobs." Not so. Boobs are a primary interest in and of themselves; the attached woman is actually an attribute of the boobs. I personally like my boobs with a woman attached who is smart and funny and all the other good things.

They give you something to look at while the woman is talking, too.

Anyone else ever had a woman stare fixedly at your crotch while she talks talking to you? With a scary, mesmerized stare, parted lips, and tongue almost sticking out of her mouth?

Its scary.

They made a joke about it in some movie with Mel Gibson, I think, where he can hear people's thoughts, and some woman is thinking to herself "ohmygod, I looked at his crotch again."

Seems to me the only thing wrong here is YOU'RE upside down. But I could be mistaken; it happened once before way back in the 1990's. Jeez that's the last millenium!

Okay, to clinch the deal I can give you references. NOT the XW of course, but a lady since then...:D:eek::D Still on good terms!

OY :rolleyes: No what Im saying is people should consider MUTUAL financial compatibility as much as every other compatibility. It only makes sense, people tend to be somewhat shallow when it comes to affairs of the heart but if you gave as much consideration to how you both will LIVE than how she / he looks in a pair of jeans you might just have a relationship last a little better.

It has nothing to do with me or you it has to do with mutual compatibility in all regards including monetarily.How about when the woman earns more?

Bernadette,

Be careful what you wish for. Some guy asked me to dinner once and let's just say, the ride had been interesting.:rolleyes::D Nothing like being called Bob in the middle of the night . . .

Gee, Bernadette has been around here longer than most of us.:p
I think it's great she has a sense of humor about this whole thing.

And while I personally don't mind a little distance.... 10,000 miles +/- is not my idea of a good time!
Sorry B! But I AM glad you found some good cheer in this thread!:)

Bernadette, I wish you well. You know guys, if you find one you like just wink and it all starts all over again. If you aren't where there are men then get a dog. They're always good company.
