I am single.
I am not too worried though because:
I have several "equalizers" if you know what I mean and know how to use them,
blood and gore doesnt bother me much anymore,
I also have made it a point to learn self defense techniques and stay in excellent shape,
I am already bugged out for the most part
I will be a valuable member of any group because I:
am an herbalist- I know almost all the wild edibles and medicinals in my woods here and how to use them,
hunt and fish and have for years, (I hunt with both rifle and bow),
know how to tan animal skins and hides, and know the uses for all parts of the animal,
have a good amount of commodities cached, so they are nearby but not apparent,
make excellent wine,
am 50 years old so not the most "desirable" of the girlys, lol
am an excellent cook and prepare delicious game as well as other foods,
am pretty even tempered, have outgrown drama and am pretty cool in the face of tragedy and disaster.
Really, the only reason for having a man around (for me) would be for companionship...and occasionally getting the tight lids off of jars.
ETA I started preparing myself for a SHTF scenario more than 10 years ago, and have spent much time since then learning skills and preparing for the worst...it doesnt come overnight!edit on 18-5-2011 by Elostone because: (no reason given)

Bachelor number one, I'm post menopausal, big/wide and frumpy, but I have a cute face (as reasonably as can be expected) I'm covered in cat hair, and I harbor 51 years of abject rage, otherwise, I'm super empathic and have a dry sense of humor.

The only thing I'd be concerned about in the shtf scenario, is keeping my kids safe. I'm not really worried about having a bloke around to protect me as such.
