I'm sorry to hear you haven't met someone like that.

wonders how this thread became so testosterone laden.

Guys you've completely hijacked the intent of this thread! But to be fair, it seems only a few ladies did find this thread interesting enough to post on.

That's actually what's so funny about it. I think I've seen more sailor chicks posting since this dust-up than I've seen in a while.

It's good to see that the sexes can still mix it up a bit. Oh behaaave, baby...

I must say, after 2 spouses, 25+ yrs of marriage, I have noticed that no matter how good or bad you think you wife is, like you, same goals, likes etc, there will always be something that you like, they do not, they like you do not. At the end of the day, most things are equal, hopefully, there will be times when they go off by themselves to sail and go bowling or bowling the other knits, or some such blather.
Things like politics, both liked watching the politic, I generally get bored........

life will go on. many as said, probably do not like playing on internet chat rooms...hence not as may come to places like this.

Some exchanges I have found baffly. Others have enlightening. For instance, I now have a greater understanding of and sympathy for my friends who refuse to sail with their husbands and prefer sitting home in front of the tele.

There are some really wonderful, full- evolved males here on Sailnet whose voices of reason drown our the grunts and chest-thumping from those of the troglodyte persuasion.

Evening Folks,

HerSailNet was created as a a welcoming place where polite conversation between and about women in sailing is supposed to occur. The hope is that this can be a forum where people of any gender and all preferences can come and be treated with respect. Read the sticky... confrontational attitudes are to be left at the door.

I have removed some of the more offensive posts and hope that the recent events on this thread will not in some way prove a deterent to using this forum as it was intended.

Respectfully,
Jeff
