Letter Re: Advice on Finding a Preparedness-Minded Spouse

Dear JWR,
I am a middle-aged female, single and have no children. I recently relocated to an area that I believe to be “safer” than where I had been living previously. I had hoped to meet others who were awake to the realities of life once I settled here, but much to my disappointment and amazement the natives seem to be “clueless.”

So I find myself in a very difficult if not dangerous situation. I may likely find myself alone when the SHTF. I have searched endlessly for a message board or the like in which I could communicate with others who have a similar interest, but to no avail. I know that there must be many others who share my concern about being alone when the time comes. I have a tremendous amount to contribute in many ways and I don’t give up easily either.

Do you have any resources or ideas that you would share? Thank you in advance for your time and consideration! Sincerely, – Beth

JWR Replies: I recommend this site previously mentioned in SurvivalBlog, as well as the Country Singletree Forum at Homesteading Today. Use the same precautions that you would with any other online dating service. Proceed with prayer.
