Episode 64: Dating? It can be hard to find LOVE Off The Grid

finding love off grid

As the title for today’s show says it can be hard to find love off the grid. For the last few months I have been seriously occupied almost daily with basically getting things straight out here in the off grid camper that dating was not a concern. Now that the cooler months of fall are here I have found myself yearning to spend quality time with someone special. If you are already living off the grid in any kind of remote area you understand where I’m coming from. If on the other hand you are wanting to live off grid and have not thought about the whole love, dating, and finding someone special please take a moment to think about it because it is a fact of life you will face. Even if your a hermit sooner or later you will feel the call of loneliness and long for someone special to share those wonders of nature with. If on the other hand you are lucky enough to have found your soul mate then consider yourself blessed and please try to appreciate them that much more.

All relationships go through hell, real relationships get through it.

Today’s episode of the podcast may not be much of anything about the physical aspects of day today life out here off the grid but more about one of the key psychological aspects. You can sum it up in a four letter word.. LOVE. It really can be hard to find someone that wants to live this kind of lifestyle because most of the people in mainstream America today are to busy keeping up with the Jones white picket lifestyle. After thinking about it I came up with a short list of pluses and minuses for singles looking to meet each other on vs off the grid. It wasn’t much of an eye opener. Common sense would tell you that the fact that most people want to live with all of the modern conveniences is just easier and more comfortable. Truth be told I honestly believe that most people just don’t like to think. It is certainly a lot easier to simply toss money at a problem rather than use critical thinking skill but that is beside the point. The bottom line is that it has quickly become more apparent that my choice to live out here in my humble camper while taking the path less traveled is a lonely one at present. While it can be relatively easy to access the singles dating pool in the suburbs and cities it can be challenging to get a date out here off the grid.

Relationships are like algebra equations. You ever look at your X and wonder Y?

Looking back at some of my past relationships I have always learned something and it seems like each one faces tests to either strengthen or dissolve your choice to stay together. Fortunately I have been on the grid long enough to experience several “algebra equations” learning something new about each one. For example I have learned that I am pretty good at math when it comes to the dating scene. lol Yes that was a joke! 🙂 Seriously though when your looking to meet someone in today’s modern world one of the best ways is through the internet dating websites. Which leads me to my next point. What about dating websites you ask? The thing is 99% of the dating websites out there were created by and for the 99% of people still stuck in the Matrix so they just don’t get it! lol If you have been following along with the podcast you know about Off Grid Singles by the quick advertisement in the beginning of each show. As an artist and all around creative type I created the dating website in an effort to begin building a community for those of us choosing the off grid lifestyle. Membership is free by the way. 🙂 I won’t turn this into a long drawn out pitch but if you are interested please take a moment to check it out.
