Meeting women while cruising?

I'm in my mid-thirties and single, and I would be interested to hear from single straight men under 60 sailing around the World, if are there any. How difficult is it to meet women when you're living a lifestyle like that?

Do they often run away screaming when you meet on land and they learn what you're doing? Any chance in hell finding someone to join me on the boat?

Probably depends on the boat.

About the same as meeting them otherwise. Some might find it interesting, many will not. Just as in any other effort to meet them.

The location, and boat will mean a lot in finding single ladies. Example of where I am. You might get lucky, and mett one in a grocery store. Go to South Beach, and strike up a conversation. Bring up sailing, and you have a date.........i2f

Most find sailing exotic and interesting until they actually step on a boat. If you really wish to meet women who like the sailing concept, check out Find a Crewâ„¢ Worldwide - The World's largest Online Marine Crew Network - if you sail around you will almost always find one or more interested in coming along for a stretch and you can cater your selection criteria to search out only those with the same intentions and interests. That site is almost like a dating site for sailors, I know of one or two (or maybe three...) single sailors with boats who use that site quite a bit.

Thanks for the replies everyone! findacrew.com is a really interesting resource, even though I probably wouldn't look for a romantic partner on such basis.

As for if meeting women while you're cruising is the same as while you aren't... I guess not too many women would want to date a man a relationship with whom requires leaving your job, friends and home and spending weeks at sea with no one but him to talk with.

There's a longstanding maritime tradition whereby you simply rent them. Note that this is not legal in some ports.
