Maybe I need to remind folks that personal attacks are not allowed here? Any further attacks will be deleted. Understand that not all women are secretly offering sex or want someone to drool over them and hope that they make a pass. Until informed otherwise I will take these ladies word for it. There are also males out there that do appreciate female travel companions and are not looking for a sexual encounter. Some are married like me, (of course my wife would never let me cruise without her, she loves cruising), and some just don't like sharing with another male. That would be me if I were single. I also have a number for great female friends including my best friend and sex has never been an issue. Friends and companions do not have to mean sex partners so of you get your mind out of the gutters.
