Offer a few tips to help matches win you over.
-- You’ve actually read all of what I have to say on my profile.
Skimming over it and looking at the pictures doesn’t count. In my
opinion, it’s a matter of respect to read what I have to say.
-- You have a significantly higher than average IQ. You’re
interested in and able to discuss intellectual things like science
and philosophy but still have common sense when it comes to country
-- You have the heart of a true warrior and the spirit of a true
rebel. You’re dangerous in a good way. You have the courage and
integrity to fight the system for the good of yourself and others,
even if it means risking your own life, liberty, security, and
-- You have an off-beat sense of humor and can laugh in the face of
adversity. You’re also up for some pretty crazy adventures.
-- You have what it takes to survive and enjoy life in the
wilderness. You’re not afraid to go out into the woods at night.
You don’t spoil yourself with a lot of luxuries. You’re not
materialistic and realize that you don’t need a huge stockpile of
so-called “survival” gear and have the skills to make it with just
a few simple, basic items.
-- You’re open-minded when it comes to religion, spirituality, and
the Occult. It doesn’t matter what your spiritual path is, as long
as your personal spirituality is important to you and you’re not a
fundamentalist of any kind.
-- You’re NOT the jealous and possessive type. You can appreciate a
strong, independent, and free-spirited woman for who she is, you’re
not in a big hurry to make any kind of commitment, and being a good
loyal friend is your first priority in a relationship.
-- You like dogs. You don’t have to be a dog person to the same
extent that I am, but you do need to like having them around. Also,
you need to respect my cat and my chickens.
-- You’re 420-friendly. Whether or not you partake is optional, but
I’m very pro-legalization, so we need to be on the same page as far
as our civil liberties are concerned.
-- You’re thin enough to look down and see your own dick. Sorry,
but I personally don’t find big, burly, heavyset guys physically
attractive. I’m not much of a cuddler, I don’t need a teddy bear,
and big guys just make me feel smothered. Other physical features I
find attractive, like long hair, dark complexion, tattoos, etc, are
all certainly a big plus, but the “rule of dick” (similar to the
“rule of thumb” only more specific) is the only real must-have as
far as physical appearance goes.
-- You’re older than me. I’m not interested in dating younger guys,
and I’m very rarely interested in guys my own age. I’m not going to
set a specific age range, but different generations have a
different mindset, and I don’t relate to the modern,
addicted-to-SmartPhones, Generation Y Millennial mentality very
-- You’re local (within about 25 miles or so) or at least
semi-local (within about 50 miles or so) or plan on relocating
soon. I’m not looking for a long-distance relationship, and I love
my Mountain Holler too much to relocate.
-- You love music. The music in your collection ranges from
mainstream to obscure, and you enjoy sharing your music with
friends and discovering artists that you haven’t heard of before.
Bonus points if you can name more than 4 Oingo Boingo songs.
-- You hate TV as much as I do. Or at least you’re not addicted to
it and don’t watch much. I’ll make an exception every once and a
while for a 2-hour movie, but in general, TV starts to grate on my
nerves after about 30 minutes or so. I won’t have one in my home,
at least not in the main living area.
-- You like to hunt. You’ve got a good coon dog and don’t mind if
me and my dogs come along with you on your hunts from time to
-- You wouldn’t mind coming over every once in a while and helping
me with tasks I don’t have the physical strength or skill to do on
my own in exchange for a good old-fashioned
home-cooked-in-cast-iron meal. You’re not afraid to eat things like
raccoon meat and wild mushrooms. Everyone seems to really like my
cooking, and it’s more fun if I can cook for someone other than
-- You make really good homemade wine.
-- You like medicinal herbs (take a wild guess at which one is my
-- You’re an artist, musician, writer, or some other creative type.
It doesn’t matter whether it’s a profession or a hobby, as long as
it’s a passion.
-- You’re Native American and traditional. I may not be one of your
people, but I have friends who are and I am 100% on your people’s
-- You’re self-employed or work for a small business as an artisan,
craftsman, or tradesman of some kind. Also, I’m independent enough
to be happy with a truck driver or someone who travels for whatever
work he does. Let me make it very clear that I may be cash-poor but
I’m not a gold-digger and I don’t care how much money you make or
don’t make. I care that you value your freedom too much to be a
loyal slave to a big corporation.
-- You’d consider having an open relationship. I can adapt to and
be 100% faithful in a monogamous relationship if necessary, but I
prefer to be open. If I’m in an open relationship, it’s actually
very rare for me to even want to have sex with anyone else, so for
me it’s not about sex, it’s about freedom. If I actually do
anything with anyone else you can trust me to be completely honest
about it, and if you do anything with anyone else, I expect the
same honesty in return.
-- You're just as eccentric as I am.
-- We have a fairly high match percentage. I realize that the
matching system isn’t foolproof, but it does have some validity, so
if we’re only a 20% match or something like that, it’s probably not
going to work. Plus, I didn’t answer all those questions for
I realize that the odds of meeting someone who meets this
description 100% are slim to none, and I don’t expect to. I’m just
describing what kind of man I’m looking for and likely to be
interested in, albeit idealistically. So realistically, the more
this description applies to you, the better your chances are, even
if you don’t fit it completely.
