    Yup! That's why I went abroad, find some one that has had there life turned upside down, Some one that understands what all this is about, that is how you find a companion! My lovely Bride has been through a few major conflicts and other troubles, so she really gets this whole "prepping thing"

    Patience and perseverance, Tink....they are out there but they are sometimes hard to find. Better to wait and find the right one the first time around ;)

    What do you say to them? Maybe it is your approach. If you go all tin-foil, doom is around the corner then that would be unsettling but if you go hiking, shooting etc... they can gradually get used to someone who sets some extra things aside. If you bring your date home on the first date and show her 300 cans of Spam, there may not be a second date.

    Well Guys , lets NOT hope we lost another Beautiful breeder !! as MM " 300 cans of Spam, there may not be a second date."

    All In FUN Gurls !!! & no worries , ever!

    Tink , do You as you do , prep for you as u do .

    I'm Married 30+ (second time so I'm used) . Some "smart woman notice I buy bags of bulk stuff " then Im asked , they find out Im Brit from Canada & im needing to leave .Bulk buys are 250$ per qtr. So this happens every time .
    You will notice or get noticed.

    Be careful since My country is a mirror to yours.

    As in "Reds" , Myth !! I do remember two lovely's .


    Don't jump , learn via eye watching.

    Whoops! I guess @Tink44 is a female. Sorry, I had an Uncle Tink.

    Here is my advice. Great places to meet like minded men. Gun Ranges, gun shows also Meetup has some prepper groups and there maybe one in your area.

    The title says companion. It could be same sex. Especially in Washington.

    If you don't have your ham radio license, get one. Then go to the meetings of your local club. Target rich environment. Just saying... If I hadn't married the most amazing man in the universe, that's where I'd look.

    Off hand, I can think of only two single monkey males and three females off the top of my head. Pickin's is apt to be slim in the banana tree.

    Hey Tink, if you have 300 cans of spam (as Motomom thinks, or even 200) and an AR you sound right up my alley! Drop me a line!
