Finding a sailing mate
Some good ideas have been posted, though most of the Seven Seas Cruising folk I've met have been couples. Anyway, let me encourage you single ladies--and gentlemen.
I'm probably older than many of you and the pickin's seemed mightly slim to this lifetime sailor in search of a soulmate. But after meeting many frogs, I finally found my prince. When we met, we owned five sailboats between us. We still own four--three in NC and two in CA. And this fall, we're casting off our dock lines and heading as far around the world as we can get.
If none of the suggestions given here work, you might try what I did. I was VERY specific in the parameters I set forth. (For me, they were tall, Christian, sailor--I'm 5'11", my prince is 6'3". Yea! For you they will probably be different. Just figure out the things you really want and don't bother with folk who don't fit.) Just before I gave up the search (way too many frogs--most of them interested in groping instead of sailing), I tried a specific site and met someone I thought would just be a friend. After all, he was a continent away. Instead, we've now been married almost four years, and I never knew it could be so good.
Blessings to all of you and may you find the one designed just for you. It's incredibly fun when you do.
