Always Date A Scuba Diver
We are always on time! And by on time I mean 1/2 to one hour early. This means we're always on time for dates, dinners, and movies which means more "us" time and less "sighing of disappointment" time. If you're a true scuba diver, you've been brought up understanding how boat charters work and how they require check in times prior to departure. We all know boat captains will not wait for you even if you are five minutes late, we also know to get there early to get a good parking spot and scope out prime real estate on the boat. Divers are able to transition these skills into their dating life, meaning you'll never be late to a movie or miss a dinner!
We are excellent planners. This means we have no problem planning dinners, nights out on the town, or trips (especially ones that include diving). You're in good hands if you're dating a scuba diver; we plan everything related to our dive. Our equipment, our gas supply, the profile of our dive, the way we're going to communicate... all which translates so well into dating life. Our equipment - what to wear (wet suits don't count), gas supply - no Mexican on a first date, profile of our dive - dinner at 6 movies at 8, communicate - knowing how to understand someone talking through a yawn, with a full mouth, or from across the room reading their lips.
Communication; we don't actually care if you talk or if we hear from you on a regular basis. We are really great communicators, I mean think about it we articulate thoughts with grunts and hand gestures ..... BUT there are very few circumstances were divers will communicate underwater with vocals. Typically all communication is done with symbolic gestures or sign language. Most divers, dive with spouses so they can't talk, some quality time with out the nagging. How does this translate in the dating world? Well, we'll kindly laugh at your jokes, we won't nag you, and we'll be able to understand almost everything you're trying to tell us; but we won't expect you to call us regularly or text us every five minutes. It also means that we know what your thinking; we know your exact thoughts when you raised your right eyebrow when that girl walked by, or we saw your eye dilate when your steak came to the table, we are gifted that way. Communicating through eyes has been an accepted challenge for divers. And lastly, because we don't want to communicate the wrong thing, when we take pictures with our friends, we will always give an OK never a thumbs up.
Chilling out with friends? First thing that comes to mind is fleece onesies. We look beautiful coming out of the water regardless, so coming out of the shower and throwing sweats to have a night is perfect for us. If we're drysuit divers who knows maybe we'll even put on our polartec onesie and snuggle in close. If we're not chilling in, then we can get changed into some jeans super quick! Have you ever seen a diver throw on a wetsuit when the captain calls 10 minutes? It's magic. If we're out, we can always provide endless stories to keep our friends entertained throughout the night, but we'll never step in your spotlight.
And last but not least; if you can't figure out what do with us, its easy! We spend hours underwater not really moving and staring at little fish; so pop in the Finding Nemo DVD and grab a bowl of popcorn because we'll be right at home.
Always date a scuba diver!
