Another SWF - Will trade companionship for expense paid crui
 
I saw Kim's post and figured Id post a message. I am SWF fairly good looking and well educated. Since financially I am unable to cruise right now....I would be willing to accompany a gentleman in exchange for an expense paid cruise. I stress here that I am not trading sex...only companionship for dinner, shore excursions, dancing, intelligent conversation etc. Unlike Kim I am not in my 30s but in my early 50s

Hi!

If you live in Florida then maybe we could cruise together. I am in my sixties and love to cruise. I am retired so I have a lot of time on my hands. We could try a cruise to the Bahamas (3 or 4 days) and if it work out we can do longer ones. I am a part time Cruise Consultant and can sometimes cruise at a discounted rate. Looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello!,
In response to your posting, I would be interested in a companion cruiser. I am a home based part time travel agent. From time to time the cruise lines offer FAM(familiarization ) cruises at a reduced rate. I am married,but my wife doesn't seem interested in them. Therefore I would have to pay a single supplement. I would rather have a companion. No problem with sex,because as a two time cancer survivor, I have been left sexually impotent!
I hope to hear from you soon.
Regards,
Marshall

There seem to be several women seeking to trade companionship for an expense paid cruise. Maybe there should be a separate category for this so thse are all together for people who are interested.

George, what a great idea...........maybe it should be under something like "Please pay for me, a complete stranger, to go on a vacation........I will be nice to you if you do" LOL

IMPORTANT: Female Compansionship for Cruising
 

To All the Women who question those that offer companionship for a free cruise:

I am lonely. I have been in the desert in the middle east for 8 months and its depressing. I am only 22 years old, and am older then most of my friends out here. I dont have a family, I didnt have time to start one. I havent even finished school yet, I have one more semester to go.

I get one break during this tour, and it lasts only a few days. Sometimes a cruise ship offers the best of both worlds - relaxation and all inclusive low expenses - the very two things that are needed.

The company of a female is very treasured after a long tour out in the sands, because it brings a comfortable, almost relaxing presence. Conversation brings a different perspective of life, and a smile brings a warmth that hasnt existed for months. I do not have to sleep with the woman to appreciate her company, I do everytime she smiles back, or we make funny face gestures across a room when we have both picked up on something intuitively. Thats the amazing bond between men and women, the likeness that can be shared along with the subtle differences that are admired. Forget the sex, its pathetic.. its a natural evolutionary need that our body is driven from at its most primitive and pressing need - evolution survives through re-creation.

Our brains, however, have developed past the point of evolutionary needs determining every action. We can understand a deeper meaning between the companionship of a man and a woman, and can appreciate the subtle joys each can bring to the others life.

There are a million stories like mine that tell of men taking a vacation on a cruise as a perferred method of relaxation, but also of being lonely, or of truly wishing they could share this time with another person.

Dont crticize these ladies for posting available times in their schedule to share a vacation with another person. One person has the monetary funds but lacks the available companionship of another, while a different person lacks the funds but is more then ready to share in the joy of meeting new people and sharing memorable moments in their lives.

The internet allows for this incredible unification of people, from all around the world.

Dont criticize people for finding eachother, thats the building block of our eternity, and hopefully will forver be the foundation of our future matrimonies.

-Lonely Man in the desert

I can appreciate that and most of us have the very best intentions. But we all are familiar with the workings of the human mind and if we're completely honest about it and not trying to pretend that we can walk on water, everyone knows what goes throught the mind when we see the opposite sex walk across the room in their sleep wear, unless we're homosexual. It's the nature of man. I think it's great to be forward enough to make these offers, but there's no sense in trying to fool everyone and make it sound so innocent. The people offering and the ones accepting both know the score, so let's knock off the innocent act. None of us were born yesterday.

Re: Another SWF - Will trade companionship for expense paid
 
You are wrong about this. I guess what you are saying is that it is impossible for men and women to be platonic friends, business partners, or co workers, and that all male female relationships are about sex.

Have you ever gone on a date with someone you knew that you were not going to marry. Most people have. Perhaps you want to go to dinner or a show and dont want to do it alone. Perhaps you want to have someone to talk with at dinner or about the show youve just seen and see everyone else is coupled and dont want to be alone. Perhaps you have professional or intellectual interests you like to share.

When a man and women go out on a date it most likely is the man who pays for the date, because 1) it is the custom and expected of any decent man and 2) most men make more money than most women.

When a man and woman go on a cruise it is simply a long date.

There are also circumstances where a man may have business either on the cruise or at the ports and may be going to business events where he is expected to have a woman with him (if he does business at the port he may be able to take a tax deduction as a business expense).

Also at least one of these posts offered her companionship to women as well as men. There may well be some elderly or disabled man or woman who has difficulty getting around and needs a companion or pehaps a single parent or couple who desires an au pair.

I do not know what prostitutes charge but its my guess that if a man wants to pay for sex he can do so for a whole lot less money than the cost of a cruise.

Your quote was "It's the nature of man" perhaps it is but these posts are being made by women not men, promiscuity is not the nature of women, so if everyone is up front with what they expect and what is or is not included there should be no problem.

Dear Elle13

I find it interesting that JackC was not judging the book by its cover. Actually your "picture" was posted after his comment. I believe that based on your reponses to this message as well as others, he was judging your "persona" ...how you are inside!
Maybe we should try to understand and be respectful of other's way of thinking and feeling. My best friend use to say..."people like you start wars".

Elle13 June 13th, 2005 09:37 AM

Re: Re: Another SWF - Will trade companionship for expense p
 
Actually FL girl........he was implying that I was ugly, before even seeing my picture.....saying I couldn't get a man except if it was really dark or something like that implying that.......if one was ugly, they couldn't get a man.........basically saying that the cover was all that one should use when judging the worthiness of a book.......so yes, he in effect is saying that he only judges books by its cover.........never gets to see what's on the inside if they don't look perfect on the outside..........I attached my picture after the fact to show him who I am ................. he still may think I am ugly.......everyone has their own taste and really it doesn't matter to me anyway..........

ps..........someone has to start a war..........

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.
Jim

Re: Another SWF - Will trade companionship for expense paid
 
Gee,

It started nice and friendly didn't it? Can't we all just get along? I guess I am putting my two cents in because I just happen to be looking for a cabinmate (for 04/30/06).

Though I am not comfortable with someone paying my way, I certainly have an expectation that if I signed on to share a room with a man that it would be just that, to share the room and not to share a bed. So if there is anyone out there willing to share a room, strictly platonic with another decent human being (I am a 48 yo female) drop me a line.

You seem to be a lovely sensitive mature man with an incredible insight into life and human beings.
Thankyou for your love and expression of love to all here.
I would cruise with you any day.
I am sure we would have a wonderful time.

Beautffully put and so true. I hope you find what you are looking for because you sound like a good person indeed. People will be people and those who criticize the ladies who seek companionship in exchange for a paid vacation, only show how truly shallow their thoughts are which really aren't worth commenting on

Thank you Jim - it gets pretty depressing reading when the claws come out. What you had to say was very refreshing. The world has enough cynics without the comments which have been posted.

Thank you again.
