You don't have the equivalent of the RedHookers in STX?

Or any Frenchtown Floozies or the classy Downtown Dames?

STX isn't weighing in.. Only STT. I guess all the geriatric STX'ers are asleep after the early bird special at Bill Knapps

Past my bedtime for sure. I'm on STX. Old lady and busted my butt working on the house. I'm done when the sun goes down.

Boredinstx sounds like he/she could live the same life in... Brooklyn?

Might even be far better for you. You could sell the car and just walk to the corner for your newspaper. Return to your apartment and email. Watch the sunset over Manhattan. Enjoy all the sights and sounds of a city jam-packed with millions of "intresting" people of all ages.

I'd have to ask Tammy's same question, why did you move to the USVI?

I guess STX is awake again. Probably the giant prostates and frequent urination waking them to make a comment before their warm milk and Metamucil shake

Well, I don't have a prostate, do wake sometimes to go pee in the night. Warm milk with honey is delightful maybe with some cookies before bed. No metamucil but coconut oil will do the trick.

What started as another boringly mild thread turned quite interesting and funny. Here is my take..

When people ask me what is the most important item to bring with to USVI my answer uniformly is to bring your mate from the mainland. From the perspective of educated, financially successful, white male being moved down here for work the prospect of meeting an attractive, educated, financially stable and bastardless ( btw love this expression) mate is next to impossible. I am fully open to interracial dating and crosscultural interludes but what is available here in terms of dating pool is a swamp. Sure there are options for one night stand at Red Hook but hardly anything for meaningful relationship. Personally I could not feel physically attracted to 99% of local ladies for their super voluptuous body habits. Ain't not Hally Beary or Grace Jones living down here. And then you hit the cultural gap that is nearly impossible to bridge.

As to the white chicks you have the young hippie types coming here for adventure and the more mature type who are here to join yoga clinics at STJ and find solace in the circles of like minded emo females. Neither of them rock my boat.

So having said all that I perfectly understand where boredinstx comes from. For the single guy who is beyond the age of collage frat boy lifestyle being single here and dating could be very frustrating.

Finally. Someone else understands.

It's really amazing the difference just between say St. Croix and St. Thomas. At least on St. Thomas you're bound to get some women who meet this definition, as they might take a semester off college to work down here or work right out of college. Even then it's about 8 years on the age gap and it's difficult to meet them unless you're hanging out at bars.

Yo Dude...
Sounds like a classic "wrong place, wrong time" issue. You need to get yourself a Hot Tub Time Machine!
Come back in like 25-30 years. Bring your Old Lady. It'll be righteous Dude!!!

Move to STT, Dude!
If you're not satisfied in STX, would it be difficult to relocate to STT?
Doesn't seem like you're happy there.

I think STT has way too many "old white people", "married white people" and (gasp) "locals" to adequately compensate for the few more young white bastard-free women he's seeking.

Hey. You have to stay PC correct here. Although I think there would be nothing wrong to send some rifruf to Liberia included in the top of the gov heads. There are some lovely clean islands in this chain when the overal mood is set right by the right people.

Boredinstx,

You say "at least on St. Thomas..." - Several people have asked why you don't move to STT and you haven't answered...I am very curious myself. Seems like STT would (perhaps) be a better fit for you and it appears that you work from home so....what is the problem with changing islands???

I'm looking at doing so but work requires me to be here on STX as I'm on-call a lot.

I miss these days:

Yep, life on STX is exciting. That's why we love it. For those who dive, they dive regularly, those who love fishing do it , and those sailors out there truly love the place. I love the island life I've created for myself. I am lucky to have a great wife that enjoys our island life as well. And in my humble opinion West is Best, love Rhythms and the snorkeling out there. That is if my prostate ain't acting up and I got them swimming Depends from the catheter people. Cheers yall!
