Finding Love While Prepping

April 11, 2012 by  

Finding Love While Prepping
SURVIVALIST SINGLES
“For better or for worse” may take on a whole different meaning for prepper couples.

If you are single, prepping can be a lonely lifestyle and dating may be even more treacherous than it is for non-preppers. Imagine trying to explain the importance of the five-year food store and impressive ammo cache in your basement to someone who is interested only in what happened on the latest episode of “Jersey Shore” or which team the Braves are playing this week.

And then there are all of the tin-foil hat jokes.

Few people appreciate the prepper lifestyle and may find it weird that you carry a concealed weapon for protection, a bug-out kit in the car and spend time in public places identifying threats and planning escapes. Even though being prepared for disaster is a basic responsibility of all humans, partners who understand the prepping lifestyle are often few and far between.

Luckily, Andrea Burke, a 45-year-old teacher from Montana, recognizes the plight of the single prepper. She runs a website called Survivalist Singles that is similar to popular dating sites like eHarmony and Match.com. Only, on Survivalist Singles one might find stockpiling non-perishable food, shooting weapons and perfecting bug-out plans listed alongside “long walks on the beach” in the interests section.

The site launched in 2010 and currently has about 1,640 members. Burke told CNN Money that she hopes to see the site grow. While membership is free for now, she plans to charge a $5 per month fee so she can pay for maintenance and improvements.
