Well, actually, I don’t need a woman. I already have the best one in the world. But that was what a fellow told me yesterday when he said we should add a dating column for single RVers to our website and the Gypsy Journal.
I suggested he join some of the groups for single RVers, like the Escapees Solos, Wandering Individuals Network (WINs), and Loners on Wheels (LOW), where he could meet other solo RVers, and that they have lots of activities all over the country. But as it turns out, he doesn’t want to waste time with all that nonsense. He said after four divorces he doesn’t want a friend, just a playmate, and that there must be plenty of desperate single women out there. He just needed to find them.
Yes, there are a lot of single women who are RVers, but it didn’t take me long to decide that very few of them are that desperate! There is a reason some guys are alone.
But it got me thinking about solo RVers, especially solo women RVers. At least once a month I hear from a woman who wants to go on the road but is unsure if she can do it. And usually there is at least one friend or family member telling her that she’s crazy, she’ll get ripped off at best, and very likely raped and left for dead on some lonely back road. After all, RVing is a rough lifestyle, you’re surrounded by strangers all the time, and without a man to take care of them they are doomed to failure.
Nonsense. We have met many very competent solo women RVers who are out here having a wonderful time, and they don’t need a man to validate them or take care of them. They go where they want, stay as long as they feel like it, and do just fine, thank you very much.
And in the RV lifestyle, you’re never alone. The strangers parked in the rig next to you are one smile and a “hello” away from being your new best friends.
But if you’re a woman and are really, really desperate, boy, have I got a guy for you!
