Not for me it's not...and not for people that can swim.
OK, I know I am going to sound rude quake...but seriously, learning to swim is very important. It's VERY easy, you just have to get over your initial fear. I LOVE to swim, and I LOVE the water...that is so because I learned how to swim when I was a kid. I've even won diving contests when I was an early teenager.

Or maybe it is because you are a mermaid. But I am not afraid, just lazy.

Basically, but like I said, I didnt take a vacation the last two years that I was active. I was burnt out and then went on 60 days of vacation which was entirely too long.

I would love a 60 day vacation.

My mother used to seriously call me a fish cause I loved the water. I used to help my cousin for free (well for food) by going out into the harbor and help him clean out his lobster traps. Yummy.
You can't let fear of ANYTHING win you over. You need to overcome it.
You gf is right. This is important to learn, you never know when you might need it.

I bet...you were probably used to doing nothing, then all of sudden when it was time to work again, it was tough pulling yourself off the sofa?

Oh wait...this is for you quake.

Ok cant I be right once. I am tired of being wrong. On the other hand then she gets in a bikini again, so it is win-win. But I am so fucking lazy that she could be willing to teach me how to swim naked and I would probably just blow it off.

lol...when it comes to trying to learn to save your life, yeah, she's right.
I bet you could make it a game for you. I would bet she REALLY wants to teach you how to swim, so she'd be willing to do certain things in the bedroom to compensate for your willingness to learn to swim?

I'm with you man. I can't swim either. No one in my immediate family can, except my brother who learned when he was like 21. It's kind of embarassing because I'm half Puerto Rican. I love the water and I go to the beach all the time just can't swim.

I had some bad experiences. When I was 3 or 4 I nearly drowned. I was passed out, my cousin saw me and saved me basically. I didn't go into a pool for about 7 years. Then I was at a pool party and decided what the hell. But then I broke my ribs in a freak accident in the pool.

I've always preferred the ocean to a pool but I would love to get in either and go swimming but I just can't bring myself to lift that second leg

No, I was ready to get off of the sofa. The only troublre that I had was finding competitive pay and benefits to go back to work.

The messed up thing is that when I got desperate and was willing to take just about anything for a paycheck no one would hire me. They would look at what I had been making previously and my job skills and often told me that I was over qualified. Among those who turned me down were Police depts. and Security jobs. I was like WTF! It all worked out for the best though.

I can understand your apprehension, but you really need to learn too...especially since you actually do enter a large body of water. Although, I would not recommend learning in the ocean.
