Default :D So, you want to get hooked up on your singles cruise!!!!

Hey Fellows,
I've been on a bunch of those cruises and I have always gotten hooked up. Sometimes with more than one gal. Im actually dating someone I met on one of those cruises and I figured I help the rest of you out.
Some key points to remember
-Make sure you have a fresh hair cut.
-Make keep your shoe shined.
-Learn how to dance!!
If you want know more reply to this post

Hummm...Big John...... I guess I better look at a guys with shinie shoes and make sure they have a nice hair-cut.lol.

Since I am a gal I don't look for those things in a guy that you have mentioned. I look to see if we have something in common like cruising, educated, middle-class, attraction to eachother, witty, make me laugh, etc.

I think some gals just like a guy for whatever their reasons are. Some gals are just plain lonely and will pick up on any guy that gives them some attention. I have seen couples hook-up that shouldn't be hooking up but because the gals are so lonely for a guy they don't want to see the guy's flaws. I can tell the guy is not really interested in the gal but I keep my mouth shut and don't say nothing because it is up to the gal to find out she is just being used.
BUT... you know what? Some guys do finally meet someone they really like and they become a loving couple. But we don't hear about them until after a few months when they are sure they really are compatiable.
I truly believe that going on a singles cruise is a great way to meet someone because you get to see the person day/night for the whole week. We get to see who is out for a fling and who is out to get serious.
On my next cruise I plan to see who is truly looking for a girlfriend and who is just looking to have a temporary fling.
If I look around and don't see anybody that is interesting to me then I hang out with guys who just want to be my friend and hang out with me like friends. That has been my experience as a gal.
I only wish I could meet a guy from my own state because it would be a lot easier to see eachother often. The long distance relationships can work out if you really like eachother but one person has to give up their home base.

If a fresh haircut and shiny shoes is all it takes.... I think a charming personality goes alot further. Afterall, I seldom wear shoes.... but...

I can dance, yes, I can dance, I can dance, yes, I can dance

!!

Um...Dave...I don't think by hook-up he meant your bra!

I may be totally naive, but I think you just need to present yourself well, be yourself, and REMEMBER NAMES!!!

Might not work for "hook-ups" (I wouldn't really know), but it is a great way to kick off lots of friendships...and don't downplay the remember names part...it says a great deal when you make that effort!

so no hook up for me.
i don't think i can attract to someone looks like going to office or funeral.
neither a man in a bra looks so irresistible.but go ahead dtw,you look tooo funny at least.
i agree with angelgal,i see the single women waist their times trying to pull the drank guys.
the women were laughing(screaming) constently out loud that you can heard them from land to get the attention on next seat ,and they got nothing.
.or stayed on dead bar for nothing up until the careless wifes or gf arrive before the bar closed.

if someone trying too hard never get enough.

Angelgal, Always happy to provide a laugh at my expense,

Free Spirit, I am with you girl. We are on the same page and reading the same notes. We are swaying to the same music.

Peace...

Hey Dave, you make me laugh because deep in your heart you are just a kid at heart and I think that is great. You let the child part of you come out to play....... and never mind what people think of you because they don't financially support you. I am the same way on cruises. I will do anything for a laugh. My friends love it when I act silly. Angel gal

You are right.

I am a kid at play and don't care what the others may say,
I'll take my pants off in the pool and think it is cool,
I'll go to kareoke and sing and not worry about a thing,
I'll put on a bra and dance, leaving nothing to chance,
and in the end when I get my bill, I will pay it so I can go again, yes I will.
