imagine2frolic I would have to agree, but there were a couple that were very practiced in deception. Just not practiced enough, and I escaped......lololol.......i2f

In my search, I found the pretenders and posers to be easily spotted after a few emails. Phoniness is hard to hide.

Very true. It certainly takes a huge amount off the edge when stepping into a strange boat ....and into a strange life.

I've been seeing the same thing.

Exactly. Fundamental to a good relationship is that we be good friends.

We both come from prior marriages, and we're both amazed that we have yet to have an angry word with each other. What a difference!

Yes, this is one of the beauties of Internet matchmaking. We can be so near, yet so unknown. Somewhat like unlit ships passing in the night.

imagine2frolic I believe a lot of it is you have time to get to know eachother. Time for real conversations, pics can be exchanged, and thoughts processed. I have found this a huge advantage.

RhosynMor Yes, the internet is a wonderful thing. One of the cool concepts was that because we had emailed a number of times before we met was that Marybeth had already seen numerous pics of Rhosyn mor before coming aboard, and so perhaps was more at home than if she had just stepped on one afternoon.
There are some caveats . that we all understand when meeting somone online.... but the advent of instant messaging and web cams have made it so easy for a cruising sailor/ess to meet their soulmate.

AlanBrown I met my honey as a result of an ad I placed in a FL scuba diving magazine for a dive buddy and cruising partner. She was a diver, but had never been a sailor. We exchanged e-mails for 5 months before we ever met. In that time, we came to know each other very well, so when we met, it was like meeting a good friend, not a stranger.

Fast forward a couple years. We are now married (had our ceremony on a beach in the Bahamas) and she loves cruising almost as much as I do. We are very much in love and after being together almost 5 years, we have yet to exchange a cross word with one another.

The Internet made this all possible.

bloodhunter Hey Michael,
Laura and I met on match.com 8 years ago. We had a love of sailing in plus a lot of other things in common. Without the Internet I'd probably still be sailing solo as I never did well in singles bars.
