Finding Love and Companionship Off the Grid

To anyone who is paying attention to the signs, it is obvious that human society is in a deeply troubled state. Natural disasters are happening everywhere at an accelerating rate, the economy is frozen by overwhelming public and private debt, and government gridlock threatens to shut down the Nanny State that tens of millions of Americans have come to rely on for their survival. The latter observation should not be taken as criticism of those Americans – they have been left to cling to the tattered life preservers thrown to them by the government because the private banks and corporations that have come to control everything have stopped providing real economic opportunity. These powerful interests, driven as they are by avarice and greed, are far more concerned about protecting their obscene profit margins from even the slightest risk in times of trouble than they are about helping to create decent jobs for people who need to work to feed their families and pay their bills.

It should be clear to everyone that the time for bold and assertive action is at hand. But the mainstream media and political elites continue to distract people with bread and circuses, and where there should be a burgeoning mass movement demanding change, what we have instead is a nation of quiescent souls sitting and waiting for the same politicians they supposedly despise to pass the perfect legislation that is somehow going to make everything all right again. Instead of tea parties for real action, we are given phony “grass-roots movements” that are sponsored and controlled by the same big-money interests that have been enslaving us all along.

But unlike the majority of Americans and so many others around the world, survivalists are the one group that has refused to swallow the blue pill. All across this nation, and increasingly around the globe, those who can see the truth and are able to detect that faint scent of sulfur that now permeates the air are starting to come together to form networks for sharing skills, information, technologies, and alternative ideas about how society can and should be organized.

Because of the Internet, it is now easier than ever before to find like-minded souls who understand what is happening and know what must be done. Those who have chosen to reject the lies and the manipulation once and for all and to live without compromise no longer have to be isolated because their families don’t understand them or because mainstream society brainwashes the masses to shun those who refuse to accept the status quo.

Finding Connection

Intentional communities of fellow travelers, whether they are still in the planning stages in anticipation of a post-collapse future or actually in existence right now, are a wonderful way for off-the-gridders to find social, emotional, and physical mutual support to complement their hard-earned independence and self-reliance. But while finding others to trade ideas, skills, and resources with can help bring a much-needed sense of hopefulness and a feeling of belonging to preppers and survivalists, there are still many who are missing something vitally important that everyone wants and needs in their lives – a partner to share it all with. Living and working and community building off the grid may be the only chance we have to survive the coming conflagration, but no matter what else is going on in our lives and in the world, our hearts can never go off-the-grid. A lonely heart can only shrivel up and die, and where there should be love and happiness, there will instead be a void of desperation and despair.

Many people have trouble finding love, but for preppers the situation can be even more difficult to solve because there are so few people who are capable of comprehending and accepting the truth about how dire the current world situation really is. Internet forums and other websites where off-the-gridders gather are wonderful places to find friendship and camaraderie, but connections of the heart tend to be more elusive for those practicing alternative lifestyles in a society where the vast majority choose to go along just to get along. But all over the internet, specialized dating sites have sprung up to assist those who are looking for like-minded people, and there is now at least one site available for survivalists, preppers, and off-the-gridders who would like to find that special someone.

Hearts Online

Survivalist Singles caters exclusively to those who are seeking romance and relationships with others who have embraced the off-the-grid lifestyle and/or the ideology of self-sufficiency and self-reliance. Anyone who would like to join is free to do so at no cost, and once someone becomes a member and posts a profile on the site they will be allowed to browse through the profiles of other members and contact anyone they would like by email. The site also has forums and chat rooms were people can socialize and exchange ideas, and instant messages can be sent to any other members who might happen to be online at a given time. Since those who have been looking for love have probably already spent time on Internet dating websites, all of this probably sounds familiar; but the special twist here is that the site is specifically designed to provide a meeting place for those who have chosen to go off the grid or would like to do so in the near future.

In addition to this website, which claims to have successfully brought together many who have ended up married or in relationships, some of the forums around the Internet that provide outlets for survival-themed interaction have opened up special sections for those interested in romance. And of course, social networking sites like Facebook do give people a good opportunity to find others who see things the same way they do.

Off-the-gridders looking for romance online face one problem that other specialized groups do not, however, and that is the imbalance between the numbers of men and women who are aware of and have adopted the prepper lifestyle. At Survivalist Singles, there are twice as many men who have joined as women, and younger women in particular appear to be poorly represented. Nevertheless, for men in particular who have had trouble finding women who share their ideals, an Internet dating site like Survivalist Single could dramatically expand their ability to make contact with members of the opposite sex.

Internet dating sites must always be approached with extreme caution. People who find each other online should really make an effort to get to know each other well before they physically meet by exchanging emails, phone calls, and videos of their lives. If indeed they do decide to get together for coffee or lunch, the first meeting – and the next several meetings – should always take place in public places, and at the end of the date each person should leave separately and on their own. Once a level of trust has been established, then and only then is it time to bring someone home to meet parents, children, or other members of the family. It also would not be a bad idea to hire a private detective to do a background check on people met through online dating services, just to be sure that everything is on the up and up.

Taking a Chance on Romance

While the odds may be against finding the perfect person on the Internet – especially for off-the-grid men – millions of successful relationships and marriages have started out this way. Those who choose to go off the grid do so in large part because they want to live in a way that is authentic, and a life without romance and companionship is inconsistent with this ideal because it is just an imitation of what our existences were meant to be. The off-the-grid community is trying to build something better and more sustainable than what mainstream society has to offer, and that is a vision that is definitely worth sharing with someone special.

  1. Wow! This sounds like a wonderful opportunity for people like myself who are alone and definitely in need of someone special in their life. My husband passed away several years ago, and since all of my friends are married, I always feel like “a third wheel”, and very much out of place. I’m a retired, senior citizen, so I’m also pretty limited in opportunities to find a potential companion.

    I love Off The Grid, and have bought many of your products, including my Powersource 1800, which I was so glad I had this weekend during our October Noreaster up here in Maine! Would be so much fun to meet someone else that shares my same interests. God bless you for making this a possibility!!!

    • Hi Jason, I’ve been thinking about going off the grid for a long time now. Ever since my move back from Alaska, I’ve been yearning to back to the wilderness. The camping, hunting, fishing and just strolling through the forest gave me joy. I miss it so much, the smell off nature in the morning is breathtaking and refreshing. I do like the simple things in life. But like everyone else on this site, I just can’t seem to find anyone who shares the same interests or beliefs about life and living. If like to shoot me an email, I would love to chat and go from there.

  10. Living in the Yukon Territory off grid, I’m a first nations man, and I know how to live off the land efficiently. Living alone is a very lonesome feeling, and I feel as though something has been missing in my life, and that is a partner to share these amazing experiences living off grid with, someone who has the same interests and passions as I do. A person who has a compassionate personality, and a strong will, would be someone that would be compatible.

    • Hi Rick, I’m 46 and love the concept of living off the grid. A realist by nature it seems a more enjoyable task with a partner. Someone has to cut the wood and someone has to bake the pie:-).

  13. I would like to know how to contact someone at the dating site as I read something in the security agreement that concerns me. I have re-read it several times and it still seems like I would be giving up all my rights to my profile and whatever pictures I post. I have no problem with the rest of the agreement. Here is the part I am talking about.

You waive absolutely any and all moral rights to be identified as author of Your profile and owner of Your photograph and any similar rights in any jurisdiction in the world.

    I couldn’t find any contact options there so I am just trying to get more clarification here on this part. Any contact info for the dating site would sure be helpful as I am a single woman looking for an offgrider.

    Thanks

  14. Hi, I am a 58 year old woman in Nova Scotia, Canada who wants to live offgrid badly. I want to move north of here and live in cold country as I hate heat, so I am looking at the northwest territories/Arctic. I love to cook, garden, hunt, fish, not afraid to get my hands dirty at all and I am a licensed Private Pilot. Like most others who are either offgrid already or prepping to go, I see what is coming in society. As much as I have been prepping, when I watch shows about offgrid living I absolutely hate to see the shows end and I feel sad that I am not already living the life style. I know it’s a lot of hard work, no problem. I not only want to live offgrid, I NEED to. I have a clean record, never been arrested, don’t do drugs, barely drink, don’t smoke, don’t have any STD’s, was born a rebel and will die that way. LOL.

    email [email protected]

    Please put something in reference to this in the subject line, such as responding to your concerning living offgrid or something similar so I don’t delete it thinking it’s spam.

Five girls. I was five when he told me, “I have tried for a son and now I give up! I will build another bathroom, and Kim, if you are willing, you are it! I was more than willing! I know plants, growing, fishing, maintenance, cooking, cleaning, etc. I am bored in this life now, I want to find passion in what I am doing and with the person I live with. I have been flying solo for decades now, I would like to share my life with someone. No drugs, No drama, debt free by the end of the year. Happy personality. My vices are, I do roll my own cigs, sure I could grow tobacco, and I enjoy a glass of wine, sure I can get the recipe from my dad! Currently living in Wisconsin, relocated from Charleston SC. Flooding, different work ethic didn’t fit, but I am a little thing and am freezing my arse off here in Winter! Easy on the eyes if I may say so.

      • Hey there……..I’m a 50yo white country girl, who just wants to get back to the land, and live a quiet and peaceful life to the cyclical calendar of the seasons….Would love to hear your plans. I have had an inner longing and strong pull to Idaho in the last several years. It’s just something that I can not put into words…I’m an independent thinker, worker, artist, musician, but I’m really desiring a commited lifetime partner to share it all with…I’m just contented with the simple things..I’m also a quarter horse girl, and would like to maybe keep some sheep and goats for harvesting fiber, as a little side income. Like minded gentleman with Christian values is what I seek.

          • Nice to see you clarified Bible believing Christian. After reading all of these posts and seeing “Spiritual” one can be confused IF Spiritual is related to NON Christian beliefs… OR a Christian like me who does NOT have a religion, BUT a Daily 2 way RELATIONSHIP with the Father/Jesus AND Holy Spirit.

            BLESSINGS to ALL OF YOU posting on here. I am 53 but look/feel/act MUCH younger. Although I have STRONG Christian morals and values, I have a Personality and sense of humor. I desire the off grid lifestyle as I love nature and PRIVACY, and PREFER to be alone much more than in a crowd. I do like to spend time worshiping and praying WHICH will come in handy when the SHTF. I am a decent cook, especially making something out of practically nothing. I am creative and have COMMON SENSE. I could NEVER kill an animal, although I eat meat. That is where I would prefer a “sensitive” fisher/hunter. I have been on SSDI for chronic pain, BUT have been trying to overcome and build strength for about a year, although I am pretty fit. As you can see I am very expressive and communicative and PREFER the same. I have several cats at this time that I rescued that ARE NEVER MEANT to be food OR bait. I am very frugal NOT because I have to, but it IS a gift. In Pa just moved from FL Won’t lie…I love STRONG/fit men

          • Hello Rebecca,
            I have a relataionship with Yeshua and not a religion which is what God intended from the begining and as you have stated a Two Way communication daily to know and understand His ways. I constantly read the Bible as it is the “hand book” and try to dig out the “nuggets” that are hidden inside for us to find and use.
            I was raised off grid in northern CO originially and I have many “MacGyver” type skills that I learned during that time that I still use today. I am also an expressive and can communicate with more than just the written word my verbal skills are pretty good also. Just for information, when I do hunt is is for food only and I eat what I kill I do not hunt for “fun” or for “trophies”
            I would love to communicate with you more and I am in good shape and keep my self fit eating healthy and doing outside work for my exercise. you can email me at the address above your reply it is a gmail dot com the rest is correct

    • I am currently building my dream log cabin’ 2000 sqft, I will be off grid but not real remote… I am building this without incurring any debt, I’m not a radical just wanting to live simple… I am a 55 year old male living in northern Wyoming… rwcookie2 gmail… Thanks

    • frederick Lahaye

      where do you live now im 56 and live in florida

  25. Am purchasing undeveloped land in colorado, anyone interested in living and helping on it. 54 make with two toddler boys

    • Hello Mark
      I’m also yearning to find higher ground away from all the city slickers here in Colorado Springs. Living somewhat off grid sounds heavenly. I was raised off grid in Idaho…and can’t wait to find a small partial of land to begin a build. It would sure be nicer with a likeminded partner. I’m accustomed to the life style….and throughly relish the peaceful splendor of DIY’ers. I’m very resourceful, creative, hard working and most importantly….a dreamer who makes life happen. It’s rather a challenge to find others who dream of such a lifestyle it appears. I’m a college grad…bought a home..raised one son..helped put him through College and now….it’s the perfect time to dream even bigger. Off Grid 🙂 makes me smile. Oh, I’m a young, active, enthusiastic Lady of 54. Currently an Art Instructor and pianist/composer.

      • Hello Julianna,
        I grew up in northern CO off grid and currently in the process of buying 20 acres in northern Idaho I’m going up in the spring to make the final look around to decide. One does have a small cabin already and the other 2 are just land but with lots of potential. I keep myself in good shape and have lots of “macgyver” type skills that I use in my current job and I am also an artist and play the guitar.

  26. 65 year old woman seeking a man close to my age to share my off grid life with. If your interested let me know. I can use work working tools, tractors. Have my own virgin land in Tennessee ready and waiting for us. I love to garden, and build.

  27. It checked out the survivalistsingles site. It only took about 2 minutes to find the same girl with two completely different bios. I think this article is just trying to sell junk subscriptions to a website.

  28. I joined Survivalist Singles, but it wont let me log in and I have TRIED to contact the site owner, but have NOT heard back!! From reading through these comments, seem to be working better then their site!! lol

    I’ve been toying with the idea, of living off grid, not only due to our PATHETIC world, but due to people as well….so….there would have to be a DEFINITE CONNECTION with someone, before doing so…..

  29. 40, male (separated, chance she may return), northeast Ohio, seeking a couple or a couple single individuals who would be interested in joining me in self sustainability here on my 6 acre property. I have over the past 5 years slowly shaped this property to accommodate my needs, but would entertain the idea of a small group of like-minded individuals to live together and pitch in so everyone can benefit from our efforts, and we don’t have to work as hard in our daily lives because multiple members equally contribute. This is not a cabin in the woods, rather a 3 bedroom ranch style home with a finished basement. I am very neat and clean and would hope anyone interested in this could appreciate this. Also have 1/2 acre stocked pond, loads of maple tree for making syrup, apple trees (would like to plant more), blackberry bushes all over, pear tree (would like more) small garden of vegetable that I would like to expand with the help of others to produce more food, 36×36 6 stall barn solar operated with gutter-rain water catch for animals water, tons of storage and parking, 2 spare bedrooms with completely livable basement (fridge, stove, microwave, full bath/shower. Ideally id love to disconnect from utility service but this may be an investment that will take time to accomplish. I have not worked all the kinks or questions out as of yet regarding this concept/idea, however the core of the concept is very practical. If this idea is something you’d like to entertain or discuss with me id be happy to listen to your ideas or advice. I just feel that having a close knit community of like minded people to depend on each other and contribute equally is better than going at it all alone. We can all help each other out, relieve the daily stresses, form bonds and friendships while working towards complete independence, away from mainstream ideas and concepts. feel free to email me at [email protected]

    47 year old guy, very spiritual and likes PEACEFULNESS…the woods…fishing….nice conversation, disagreements is fine, ARGUING is not. I like to keep in shape too and splitting wood is a favorite. In North Carolina now taking care of my ailing mother and starting a small car detailing business that I can take with me when I move to Montana. I like this because it’s peaceful, it’s MINE, it’s PROFITABLE and it is fun!!! Tired of always doing what I have to do and not having any fun….For now, have to stay here as my Mom’s heart is at 10% (she is in congestive heart failure) until she passes 🙁 just trying to do the right thing…

    Moving to Montana sometime in the next couple of years…around the Three Forks area. I want to be “out” when I go home, and expect a long commute to town, however I won’t be going there to work. I will be making essential oils, chopping, using and selling firewood, running a berry farm, a plant nursery and greenhouse, selling hay (small scale), and probably doing contract work plowing snow, making soap, etc. My place WILL BE WOMAN FRIENDLY….a wood fired hot tub, and living in two “Intershelter” dome houses connected together. I was a fishmonger, so know how to clean fish, and expect to get lots and lots of trout, for my lady and I. Icelandic chickens and maybe ducks, composting and raising worms for chicken feed, and to keep the greenhouse warm, as it is frosty there….and also pristine. Do you like to have great intellectual discussions in front of a Jotul woodstove? Hot tea perhaps?
    I will have two Great Pyrenees dogs also to look after the place. I will hunt to provide deer, moose, bear, rabbit, etc. The right woman long term I will buy her, her own hobie outback kayak so we can cruise around Canyon Ferry Lake and CLEAN UP catching Walleye :-). Sound good? Shoot me an email please before I lose all my hair, as I still am handsome. I have a 4 year degree in Geography from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, 4 pilots licenses, formerly an over the road trucker, police officer, small business owner, etc.

  36. I am 63 female, and a prepper, gardener, solar enthusiast, and ready to go off the electric grid. And I am now learning about Survival Aquaponics.

    If you can hunt it, fish for it, gather it, or grow it,
    then I can skin and tan it, cook it, dehydrate it, can it, and store it…

    Being close to home is where my heart is, so no I am not interested in traveling around the globe.

    I’m caring, honest, loyal, kind, friendly, thoughtful, I even like myself, grinning!
    But I want to be treated the way I will be treating you.

    Sports are not my first interest, but sharing a garden is.
    Riding around in the mountains on a 4 wheeler is not what I do daily, but I would love to watch you chop wood, feed a critter, bring me wild flowers.

    My life is quiet, gentle, fun, happy and I am willing to share it with a man that has some of the same qualities.

    Do you find yourself smiling a lot, can you hold a conversation about most things country?
    Are you kind, compassionate, caring and loyal?
    If you have a few home spun skills, they would be surely appreciated by me.
    Are you ready for a kind hearted, no games kind of Lady?
    Are you honest and straightforward in your dealing with all persons?
    Do you:
    Pick up after yourself?
    Just pitch in because you want to?
    Offer a helping hand when you see one is needed?
    Men over 59 only PLEASE!
    No drugs abuse including alcohol. and smoking, We can live a happy life without
    mind altering drugs.
    Ready to begin, than let’s start the abc’s, I’m ready to learn all about you.

    • Hello country lady,
      I am over 60 and know how to fix and Macgyver almost anything mechanical or electrical , pick up after my self, (even wash windows). I was raised on a off gird ranch for most of my beginning life and chopping wood was one of my chores, besides caring for a large garden that would provide veggies for us through out the year. I can hold a conversation when needed or just sit and watch the stars and enjoy the wonder of the night sky. I would enjoy starting a conversation with you to learn if your abc’s line up with my xyz’s
      you can contact me at mountain dot man dot cabinbuilder at gmail dot com (no spaces between the dots)

  38. 46 and about to start going off grid. I know it will be a big change and I am really looking forward to it. I am currently selling my home and going thru a divorce, just so I can chase the calling of being more self-sustaining. Haven’t decided on location yet, but looking more mid-west. Minn, Mich, Ken, Wis or even WV, not sure yet. I will be getting serious about location very soon. I would love to have someone share the experience with. Not sure if what all to share on here, so if you have any advise, interest or wisdom, I am more than open for you to share. Please reach me at [email protected]

  39. I’m a 63 with a 46 coat, 34 waist. I’m in good shape. I don’t smoke or drink. I’ve got 50 acres 60 mi north of Dallas. I’ve got 16 ft heavy chain link across the front and good luck trying to get through from the sides. The cedars are ready for harvest. The underground log home starts this summer

Should be off the grid by next winter. Need a companion to share the experience. Call or text me at 2142123639 if you don’t mind getting your hands dirty

  41. Sorry but I read a lot of things here and really wonder? This is no walk in the park building and sustaining life off the grid. If your going to do it with a big wack of money to get established well think again. La La land is what some of these group developments have become as I have read about many group projects that end up like developments planned with every latest piece of technology available and building beautifully architecturally designed oversize homes that look like Beverly hills gone to the bush. Look up and down the BC coast at people who drive their big new 4 x 4 up to the 50 acre estate and say wow this is the life off the grid. Run into town pick up the plants at the nursery bring them back, plant them, fertilize, water, and then harvest and put them up for winter. But we still need runs to the grocers and all that organics to complete our dedication. I guess I am becoming cynical of the label going off the grid.

    I have built a couple of conventional homes in rural small town and it was a long hard slog to get it done. So I question the need to look for that 200 acres of bush off the beaten path. Reality is unless your Yule Gibbons or Jack Rabbit Johansen, dating myself now! but those guys did it the way that off the grid originated. Years or scavenging and dragging stuff into the bush isn’t really heading off the grid? Sorry but putting your name on a big wack of land and saying here I stand just makes me wonder? What are you thinking? Yup it is a great location , but what are you really talking about? all your degrees and military experience and etc only means your plan is now what? Axe and chainsaw in hand, a trailer full of hardware your now going to work yourself to the bone for a few years steady and figure some temporary living through all the seasons to get your secluded Walden completed? I don’t mean to piss on anybody’s parade because I am personally right in there with the same dream. We have a tiny house culture now springing up and is it is another form of off the grid. So if it is about electricity you don’t need to be in the wilderness to achieve that or build to suit reality of life with a 800 or 1000 sq ft home. Yup that sounds big but again give your head a scratch and try living in one big log room or yurt or what ever your style. Going to keep some animals out there? they need a shelter too. Home depot is a long distance away?

    I question the approach and defining the goal, grow your own and survive all the seasons is not a fancy walk in the park . Reality is that there are a lot of long derelict developments in some really nice wilderness locations and there are some fantastic developments in other grid locations. I know that even having a good woman partner may not be enough for most mortal men and I hate to be a downer, just saying.
    I have a few acres on a rural road outside a small town in Southern Ontario and I am planning to develop it to suit my idea of off the grid, small house built with low cost materials from used and smart use materials. Put in as much solar as possible, develop a small self supporting water system and then the garden and all the support stuff. This means there is a road to town there is a chance to stay part of some society/culture and not totally disconnect like a hermit in the bush.

    I am 63 and looking for a single lady who just wants a simple rural life and wants to get her hands dirty working on achieving our off the grid vision. To add to it I hope to find a run down cheap place in Florida to fix up as a winter retreat traveling there at my own speed during those dam cold winters. Honestly I don’t want to be critical of some lofty dreams people are laying out here, but unless your really thinking dooms day is upon us? think carefully about what your biting off. There are many ways to be off the grid in your world. I am hoping there is a real woman of any age who might like to partner with me on my project . [email protected]

    • Frazier, They all want to just improve their lives! For some it is just growing their own food, some, it’s just not paying for utilities, and for some it is just having something they can call theirs. Buying a cheap, run down place in Florida to spend the Winters may raise an eyebrow with the folks here too. How much will you have to pay for that run-down place? Going to be able to afford flood insurance, thought about storm surge? How are you going to get out in a hurricane ? How are your summer rental people going to fare, or are you going to leave it unattended? Don’t be too quick to judge people that are just trying to improve their situations. Good luck finding your mate.

  42. My name is rusty and im tired of making other people rich while i live off the scraps.

I desperately want to get off the grid and i feel that i have a lot of knowledge to share
