WOW! If I hear one more girl whining about a man shortage! What is it, the good one's are either gay, married or skiers?
Last year, when Mark was working, I went on 2 Boston Ski and Sports Club trips by myself.
Not only were there more men than women, but most of them were attractive and well educated.
BSSC also has a bunch of summer programs. Loads of women show up for those. But supposedly, if they find out that the guy is a skier, they dump him! Well DUH!
Here's the weird thing: I went on a ski trip by myself. I post here more often than my husband.
But Mark is the one who has been skiing since he was a kid. When we first got married, I thought that skking was the most psychotic thing that one can possibly do!
Trouble is, so did his first wife.
So here I am.
I do not believe that your SO has to be a good skier in order for the relationship to work, as long as you follow a few ground rules.
1) Do not expect her to catch up to you technique wise, if you have been skiing since childhood. Its not going to happen. Do a few runs together, then head off and do your own thing.
2) NEVER try to teach her to ski!! Leave that to the pros.
3) If you send her to ski school at Killington, forget about her ever going to slopes again, at least for a long time.
4) Do not take her on trails that are beyond her ability. Leave that to the pros. Who would you rather have her scream at, you or her ski instructor?
5) Skiing is a great form of foreplay. Make "constructive use"
of your apres ski time.
Be Braver in your body, or your luck will leave you. DH Lawrence
