I met Traci almost two years ago, on a singles site. She knew that I sailed, and that I was looking for someone to sail with. She had never actually sailed, but was interested. We now sail all the time, and she's getting really comfortable with my passion. She does better than 90% of the people that I've sailed with in the past. Even my racing buddies from back in Wisconsin. She reads the wind, takes the helm even when it's rough, and can pick up a sailing term in an instant. She's a born natural. When the kid is off to college, we plan on long term cruising together. I couldn't ask for more.
I think the internet is a great place for sailors and and sailorettes to meet. and your right, you weed through the ones that want nothing to do with sailing and other things that you're looking for. It really makes the dating thing easy. Although, you do meet a few psycho's along the way.
