So, be grounded to facts when you are dating a sailor and avoid blindly believing in popular perceptions.

Go on with other aspects of your life when your sailor partner is unavailable – this will prevent you from obsessing over what he is doing or who he is with.

So you may find your partner not exactly forthcoming on when he will touch shore or where he is heading after this port.

Thus when dating, be mature enough to understand these compulsions instead of berating your partner for his evasiveness or worse interpreting it as disinterest on his part.

And if you want to get serious about your guy, you can discuss the modalities of a relationship with him so that each of you are clear about the other’s expectations.

Adapt to a sailor’s schedule Since a sailor’s work schedule is likely to be random and subject to change at short notice, they often have unpredictable leisure hours; so while you were planning an intimate evening with your guy, you may be shocked with a call that he can’t make it.

Cell phones are the most convenient of them and for regions where there is no network, satellite phones can be used.

Sometimes however use of phones may not be permitted on board for security purposes and on such occasions, you can use the internet to reach out to your partner.

On the other hand, if you are still winding up things at your workplace, your sailor partner may call you up to know if he can meet you within an hour.

Also you may not always be able to spend important occasions like anniversaries and birthdays together.

He on the other hand, was so perplexed that I had to remind him that i just proposed him and he need to give an answer to it...
