Well you certainly sound like someone after my heart. Although I must confess I have a blackberry, but only cause I have to have it for work


Seriously though, I know you lovely gals exist, but it's like picking a needle out of hay stack.


BTW, I am southern boy - Florida bred born and raised

Ok,
curiosity got this cat, I looked...
Why do I do that? Where's my aspirin? =)
I was doing ok till I saw the blurb from a new user: "My parents were zombies so I should be able to offer some valuable insight..." Some days I'm actually glad that I am the only survivalist type I know! =)
gb,

You know, it has to be some sort of sign of this thread coming about.

I was watching the Discovery channel's "The Colony" the other night and I had an idea of making the very network you are all discussing. I am actually breaking ground on it tomorrow.

My initial thought for making this kind of site was while watching "The Colony" and seeing the mix of different backgrounds of each of the individuals in the scenario. I thought to myself that it is just to perfect a situation to have the perfect spread of people they have on the show. Engineers, metal workers, doctors, nurses, handymen, and even personal trainers/self defense. I thought to myself, "yeah right, like that group would ever find themselves if the SHTF."

That is when it hit me. What if there we a place where people could join, start a "colony", and recruit others in their area with specific talents to said colony. They could do "pre-planning" of who brings what, where to meet after the SHTF, who would be responsible for what, and so on.

I have been a web designer for over 10 years now, and I am a computer scientist. I have all the knowledge to make it happen, and I have already built my rational rose UML mockups of the site. (for those other CS people out there).

The fact that not even a week later, this thread pops up tells me that I may just have to see this thing through.

Well, its all in the to-do list at the moment, and hopefully in a few months or so it will be a reality. I have lots of work to do.

I am liking some of the ideas, and may even incorporate some of them into it.

Until then,
xmaddness out.

OH
My
GAWSH!
Someone shorter than me! Momma was right, it -is- possible!

(ontopic)
While I think there is nothing wrong with trying to meet up with people of a similar mindset, I hope everyone (especially the ladies) remember...
Some of them "survival nuts" are NUTS!
Noone here, I'm sure =) but... we all know they are out there.

I'm probably just a bitter old suchandsuch, but my experience with guys that seem to lean toward my way of thinking (preparedness), indicates that oft times it goes like this:

Woman's work: gardening, canning, buying supplies (except the types of supplies that go BOOM), stocking said supplies, raising/homeschooling the kids to have the right mindset, keeping the chaos that is accumulating things for storage in order, And keeping the house in order during the before tshtf time.

Men's work: Polishing the guns, counting the ammo.

*grin* Now before anyone jumps a gun, I am not at all saying all men are like this! Just that, in my experience (unfortunately) there are a lot of those out there. I've read posts on here from our ats survival forum gentlemen who know, and do, far more than I do. Even in regards to more traditionally female areas... canning and food prep. Heck, a few of the guys here have the dehydrating foodstuffs down to an art form! Our guys here rock!

Still, I do think it's ok to mention this problem as a caution to women out there who may be newer to the preparedness lifestyle than I am. We learn by sharing experiences...right?

Also, from what I'm reading from the guys here searching for similar minded ladies... in their cases they seem to be the ones doing all the preparedness type work. I feel kind of badly because I didn't realize until I started reading here how much that applied for men as well as women. I guess it's just rough for all of us to find a partner, or friend, who is awake. I wish everyone who is still seeking good luck in their search.

For me, at this point I'm gonna wait. After all, after tshtf it'll be pretty obvious what man a woman needs to link up with. (the strong, the capable, etc..) Thinking of the guy's perspective (new to me, I admit), it'll also be more evident which women are more capable of coping and being a partner, rather than someone a man has to completely support and drag through the chaos of survival.

Ok, I'm just thinking and typing now. This perspective is new for me. Maybe I'm a bit glad I'm not a guy knowing those situations are coming. It must be a lot of pressure to realize that you will be expected to protect and provide simply because you are male. Hmmm, must ponder this....

I started this post to remind women that some of the men out there are worse than being alone, but I begin to see it works both ways. So I'll stick with saying, "Just be careful about meeting people..." Not that everyone here isn't a grown up, it's just the Mom in me worrying, maybe. =)
Ok, I'm done rambling, sorry. Thanks for reading this disjointed mess! =)
god bless,
~prep

I'm sure I'm not the only one but I'd like to see how your site works out. Glad to see that I'm not the only one with concept. Although you're a better man for the job cause I only have a jack of all trades level of webbuilding. Not that I know bits and pieces of all the stuff, I just mean I learned enough of the basics to pass by.

If you think women look at you like you're crazy when you talking about preparing, or the realities of the world, try being a girl. Men are at least remotely expected to be into survival sorts of things... Women aren't supposed to be into anything besides ya know, hair.

All the men I meet are barely conscious, let alone sentient when it comes to even basic things like politics, philosophy...

The world is a shallow place.. very rarely do you find a good diving spot, so to speak.

PS. Tall and manly for me starts at 6ft, sorry, that's how tall I am :p

Well, I am not really partial to height in a relationship. I'm not saying that to make you reconsider, just putting in my two cents. But I find it funny sometimes that usually the man has to be taller then the woman. yes sometimes I'm self conscious of the height, but 5 out of 6 girlfriends have been taller then me.

In part one of the main reasons this dating site idea was that one of my girlfriends was an on and off relationship for the last 2 years of about a 5year relationship. Only cause it was long distance. She was one of those that would "hope for the best" etc. In fact one of the things she stated when we were breaking up was that I plan ahead too much.
So yeah.... I plan ahead too much and that's a bad thing? Nope nope. So yeah, trying to carry on relationships with someone of a different mind set is for the most part, bad unless you are able to open up their eyes.

If someone else is interested in putting a site together or has any experience with web design and wants to help, UTU me. I'm totally down with this idea on two conditions.

1. No personal info on exact location is stored on the servers.
2. No IP logs are saved on the servers.

We would want this to be a nice thing for likeminded people, not a honeypot for a government agency.

A couple of Alice's in the group. I didn't see a Louis or a Bill. Come on they need to have a well-rounded team like in Left4Dead.

I'm actually surprised the number of women in this Meetup group. Applause to those ladies. Nothing is attractive as a woman who knows how to kill zombies and chew bubblegum.

Too bad there are no Zombie-prepared groups in my town. Perhaps, I'll create one.

Since the topic of this thread is dating in relation to survival etc, I think what's missing from this list is "contraception in post-apocalyptic world". Condoms have expiration date, you know.

If I remember correctly originally condoms were made out of sheep intestines. Ah the things we learn in porn games lol. Basically I get your point, alternative methods of birth control. Well for one the intestines idea if you are herding animals for food. I'm not sure what else.

Trust me, it's an argument I've heard before. It's not about whether we look pretty together or anything like that, but there's definitely a part of you when you're a tall woman that wants someone who makes you feel feminine. It's hard to do that when the guy whose arm you're on is 5 inches shorter than you when you're wearing heels.. I've dated guys that are shorter than me.. it just *feels* weird.. 6'3 is actually my ideal height on a man.. at that point, things fit together better.

Romanticizing the fall of civilization and the return of the old ways. Of course there has to be sex in there somewhere. I'm sure some fantasy's include roasting game over an open fire while sipping coffee next to the home made shelter. Cuddling up as the smell of roasting foul permeates the air and the dew settling in for the night with a misty fog like dance. OH yeaaaah we know what some are thinking.

Plus, ya know, extra body heat is definitely good for survival situations..

Who wants to survive alone, anyways?

No kidding right. What's hotter than a lady that can behead the undead with a glaive and carry on a conversation about gene resequencing.

That is what I'm talking about.

Does building your own zombie survival kit count?

I could probably rustle up a picture of mine :p
