Hi, I was wondering if there are any single ladys on this forum, there are like me, wanting to start fulltiming, but not wanting to do it alone? I have started dating again after being alone for 3 years, but when I tell a lady that I want to travel and live fulltime in a large motorhome, they always say their not interested. Im wondering if any of you have started fulltiming being single and have met someone to share your life with, and if so how you met them.

Interesting that you would post this in the 'RV Housekeeping: Domestic issues, cleaning, cooking and related topics.' Looking for a cook and a maid? :lol:

I know there have been a few. Don't know them personally. I seem to remember Froggi / Donna that used to be on here quite a lot got together with Stu. Haven't heard how they're doing or where.

Things can happen when the moment is right. (Gee, I sound like a Cialis commercial! LOL!)

Best of luck,


Brian

Perhaps it would be good to start out in the Full-Time RV Live by yourself, and

* get the learning curve surrounding the full-time RV process under control,

* join one of the single-RVers groups like Solos or WINs or ...,

and then see what happens.

I find it amusing that all of the replies are from males.

Your impression might be more accurate if you were to check the profile of mockturtle and perhaps others? :unsure:

You won't accomplish anything waiting, other than getting older, you have to live your own life, follow your interests and you will meet others with like ideas along your path. If you want to RV go for it and you will surround yourself with individuals of similar interests.

Here is a Google search for "Single Rv'ers" CLICK HERE One of these groups may kick-start your plan.

Be aware that some of the singles groups prohibit cohabitating.

Single groups prohibit cohabitating? Which ones? Why would they do that?

FWIW "19 Secrets We Wish Men Knew" A slideshow from WebMD website

Here are a couple of samples from the above slideshow:

Dress to Impress: Styles come and go, but a man's attention to his grooming and clothing should be long lasting. It's important to women from the first flirtation through the honeymoon and beyond..."


Guy Wears Red, Guy Gets Girl: OK, this tip doesn't come from women, but from clever testing by psychologists of women's subconscious preferences. One intriguing study found that the color red made men seem more powerful, attractive, and sexually desirable to women. There's a caveat, though. Red doesn't make guys appear nicer or kinder. That part is up to you.

I wonder if you might not have better success with some other singles group because most of the singles here, male or female already own an RV and most of them are traveling it it. We have several single RVing friends who travel alone and love it. We have met both male and female singles on the road many times and we have volunteered with several. As far as I know, none of them were looking for someone to share an RV with. We also know several RV couples who are single and who do share an RV and as far as I can recall, only one of them met while RVing. There are several who we have known for some time who met before RVing and I can think of two or three that met with one owning an RV prior to joining up. Most of the single RV folks that we have known are pretty independent people who like traveling alone and have no interest in a long term pairing. There probably are ladies who might be interested, but I doubt that you will find them on the road. I know of several members of this forum who are single ladies and none have ever expressed an interest in sharing an RV. The fact that only one single female has so far joined in would make me suspect that most simply are not interested because there are others and some of them must have read this thread. ;)

If I were single, I might be interested in traveling with a member of the opposite sex in SEPARATE RVs for a period of time. But move into an RV with a guy, particularly one I didn't know well? No way!

I would suggest starting out fulltiming by yourself...there are many people doing so...and get involved in one or more of the many singles RVing groups out there. Then let the chips fall where they may.
