May I offer the perspective of a person who is not a prepper? For what it is worth, I am a guy. 25 years old. I have a beautiful girlfriend who is not
a prepper either. But, lets say for the sake of discussion that I did not have a girlfriend at all.
If I met a girl and found out she was a prepper, well, first, it would NOT be a turn off or anything like that. I don't know if a prepper ever worries
about coming off as a "crazy conspiracy theorist" or what have you...But for what it's worth, if a girl I was dating was a prepper, it would not
In fact I may find it somewhat impressive that she felt so strongly about something and has gone to such lengths to prepare herself, should something
happen. Though, I may be biased because I have seen and been exposed to many ideas and ways of thinking here on ATS and could probably be called a
'crazy conspiracy theorist", myself. So, it just would not surprise or concern me...
But, for what that is worth, to those preppers who may or may not worry how they will look when they break it to their significant other that they are
a prepper.... Wouldn't bother me.
As for when you include them in your plans? I say...When you fall in love. When you are sure you are in love... That's when you should include them.
And yes, sometimes feelings change...If you decide you don't love them and end up breaking up, well, you can always exclude them from your survival
plans, should that happen.
I say, don't worry. If they care about you they will accept that you are prepared just in case something happens. If they have a problem with it, then
well...That's just their problem and I say you deserve some one who accepts you for who you are.
Just for what that is worth...From the point of view of a non-prepper.
