Single? Libertarian? Obviously Most of us are not Feverishly Looking for Love but Can We Find it at the Daily Paul?

Please comment if you're currently single and you would like others at the DP to know. As I just commented on another post I've been waiting for the day when someone comes along who would like to stand by my side in this battle for liberty.

I asked a question in chat a few minutes ago:

"Why is there such a shortage of libertarian women?"

The answer was that "Women like to feel safe."

Okay granted a lot of us get into a lot of trouble simply because we assert our rights. Where are the women who find that sort of thing attractive? Our society in this country has gone downhill... perhaps one of the primary reasons is because most women drop men like a bad habit as soon as they prove themselves to not be compliant and especially do not want to be with someone who "questions authority."

When did having a moral compass and unshakable principles become so unattractive?

Bitching about politics ain't always sexy. Even if you are right

Bitching about politics ain't always sexy. Even if you are right. Just like talking all the time about work. So don't bother the girls all the time with it, unless she is just as into it as you are, is what my opinion is.

Old timer's take

This movement for it's first 50 years was a TOTAL SAUSAGE FEST.

There are some reasons for this. We are cranial and haughty and our number one means of advancement as individuals or as a group is DEBATE.

Which is a $10 word for ARGUMENT. wE WILL ARGUE THE SUN RISING IN THE EAST AND SETTING IN THE WEST. PROVE IT. SHOW ME SO I CAN TELL YOU ARE FOR REAL.

We fight at the drop of a hat and like pitbulls and once engaged we will not disengage until only one of us remains and we really don't care which.

Women want to be loved and protected and all we have to tell them is ONE DAY THEY ARE COMING AND WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE, IT COULD BE NOW, IT COULD BE AN HOUR FROM NOW OR A WEEK OR A YEAR BUT WE ARE DOOMED.

We can and will sire children and we will leave them just as quick to fight an enemy real or perceived. To us this is the most high form of responsibility, to destroy your enemies but we neglect you in the process. We think we are doing the right thing but all you are asking for is a hug.

All in all we make horrible husbands and merely passable fathers. But we make some of the best friends for life. Our word is our bond and we are what people used to call "real men".

We will stand in the face of a tornado and say "YOU DON'T LOOK SO TOUGH, BRING IT! HEY WAIT WHERE YOU GOING? DON'T YOU WALK AWAY WHEN I'M TALKING TO YOU, YOU LITTLE PUNK".

Because there are few things we fear. But among these are God and our wives.

This is great smudgepot. I a young female libertarian, and oh my god.... sometimes you guys are willing to fight over the craziest things like you said, like caged pit-bulls. But this comment made me laugh because my Dad is/has been a libertarian for as long as he can remember (that is how he explains it at least). My mom is uninterested in politics and votes democrat every time. Yet, somehow they make it work.

You said you guys make "merely passable fathers" I would disagree with that. My Dad is the coolest Dad in the world! Although on that note.... I was removed from many history classes in school for asking about the "real story." When my Dad told me about shadow governments, the Illuminati, and government cover ups he failed to tell me they were not mainstream ideas so when we were talking about the different branches of government in school and I insist my teacher is forgetting about the Illuminati (because I thought everyone knew about the Illuminati...) and I would not back down... my Mother was less than impressed lol

I agree With Ed Ucation's Comment Below...

... I know I am young, but I am deeply passionate about politics and I want to make it my future career. However I really don't mind if she is not into politics. Just by talking to my sisters I can convince them of any political view within minutes because they really can care less. LOL

Here is my advice to you

Find yourself a good-hearted woman that does not care about politics. Stop looking for a libertarian girlfriend. You will look for a loooong time while your life slips away without shared companionship.

Physical chemistry, emotional compatibility, shared core values, a similar sense of humor - these things are important in a relationship. Political views are not. And I say that as a passionate libertarian. With that said, do stay away from crazy liberals or neocons.

I've always thought my problem was that I was too independent but now I realize it's the libertarian in me. Glad to have found the DP, RP and to know you guys/gals are out there too.

Hey I'm divorced

but I'm an old smudge.

I used to ride motorcycles, I owned my own shop. I was renown.

I used to camp in all 4 seasons, even sub-zero winters.

I have owned a rifle since I was 11.

I wrote a book about food storage and preservation techniques, I'll send you an e-copy.

I read voraciously, always have, I taught myself to speed read in college.

We are lifetime learners or fulltime losers, this I know.

I have two dogs that are my constant friends and companions.

My father just died and I have so little family left that I might make do with somebody else's.

I am rather a movie snob, the sets, costuming, writing and casting have to be marvelous. One movie still makes me cry: Seven Samurai by Akira Kurosawa.

I will fight for my friends any time of any day of any week and I don't care if I die trying. I am not only insanely loyal but I am fiercely protective.

I like so many different kinds of music I don't even bother playing it, I just listen for it. My fave song is children laughing and shouting.

I can't resist a good junk yard or thrift store, flea markets are kinda so-so in my estimation.

IN SHORT IT SEEMS I WAS YOUR PERFECT MAN 20 YEARS AGO.

Now I am just an old and rusty Smudge Pot.

my wolf pack

Smudge, I picked up this thread tonight because I'm watching the tragedy play out live on CSAN. Figured I'd check out if anyone had anything interesting to say on DP. Turns out, there is this thread here on something that my wife has been talking about for a year (Classified/Dating adds for Ron Paul types - and all other types who find themselves welcomed here if not welcomed by mainstream society).
Anyway, I'm reading this thread to see what posts to point out to her tomorrow morning as she's only "kinda" snoring next to me. I read your post above - the thing about the moon and the she-wolf magic - thinking the posting party was a woman. Don't ask my why, but maybe it was because of the confidence in knowledge of females (i.e. only a woman would be that confident to lecture on being a woman). In any case, I had a very different picture in mind when I first read that post. I saw this one a bit down the page and it made me think of a movie that - as a mainstream movie snob - I find to be nothing MUCH better than most of the sh1t that comes out today as dirty comedies go, but with a few redeeming moments that help it float to the top of the sh1t heep: The Hangover.
In it, the relatively new comedic actor, Zach Galafasomething, proves himself to be a perfect Hollywood addition. That is to say, he makes me laugh in the movie sometimes, but he makes me sad in real life... and this sadness for his real life will probably creep into his films as he either continues to play the same role monotonously or starts to play roles that let his real character shine through. But there is a short monologue of his in the movie that comes to mind; it is the scene in which he's describing his wolfpack.
That is a long-winded way of saying that although you and I have nothing in common and would likely not trust each other if we met on the street or under most circumstances. However, I wish as a man that I had more men like you in my wolf pack. I am finding some off them slowly among guys my age, mostly by discerning among my own male acquaintances for the first time with concern for the manner in which they think. Somehow, we as men are very willing to forgive other guys for being terrible thinkers far more readily than we forgive much else. There are probably a great deal of redneck TEA party libertarians who "cling to their bibles and guns" who would get along smashingly with a group of metrosexual homosexuals from an east or west coast city when it comes to the MANNER in which they think, even if it doesn't lead them to the same conclusions.
Now that I recognize this, I have surrounded myself with some great guys my age, though they be few in number and each one is part of an unrelated group (so most don't know each other). There are very few men of our senior generation (we are either side of thirty) who are part of my wolf pack. You are a hard lot to find, I think, because when you were growing up, it was far more difficult to remain part of mainstream society while maintaining your rebellious and discerning spirit. To us, you tend to be a little kooky. Please don't take offense to that. I offer it as an admission of prior guilt on my part and not as an indictment of your way of life. My eyes haven't been open. I haven't been paying attention for very long.
Just know that you might be increasingly alone in your life, there are MANY younger men out there who need people like you, and I don't mean because you think you are in touch with women's wolf spirits (though I reserve judgment at this time as to whether you might be right, pending my observatons on my wife commencing NOW). I mean that we need you because we have so few good male role models. If you didn't have a good father (I was lucky enough to grow up with one), to whom do you turn in search of model behavior or model living? There are many things which my father did not know enough to teach me, primarily the "counry living" things that a small business owner (and I mean small business like you are only able to employ yourself and maybe one relative, and you close the business when you can't run it any longer). Where do I find the older generation of guys who can teach a young man to be like the men who thrived when commerce and trade or getting a white collar job were not necessary?
Know that your independence is sorely needed by younger guys.

Old Rebel With A Cause

Thank you so much with this insight into your character.

I used to say, "I am waiting to grow up and I just grow old."

When I was 50, I decided that it would be really be nice to find someone to grow old with. Now that I am 68, that is no longer a goal. I don't need someone to grow old with since I am already old.

No matter how old we are, we are still rebels with a magnificent cause, LIBERTY!

I shall always smile now, when I see your comments.

Wish I could have been one of these things first.

I could have been a sailor
Could have been a cook
A real live lover
Could have been a book
I could have been a signpost
Could have been a clock
As simple as a kettle
Steady as a rock

I could be
Here and now
I would be, I should be
But how?

Your Poem Reminds Me of this Song

From reading your comments in this thread, I know you're unlikely to enjoy the following song, but you could appreciate it.

As for me, I like the song. It's a rap song. I recognize our age difference could be the maker on our takes of this song, but do know this song was before rappers swore or, if they did, wielded swears how Norse god Thor wields his hammer Mjolnir, mostly and forcefully. This song rhymes and is creative. That's the rap I enjoy. Perhaps it's poetry. Whether it is poetry, the song's fun and light hearted.

Here is this one hit wonder and, I think, his lyrical, suave song "I Wish."

TRIVIA FUN: Before clicking the link, any DPer, can you name the artist of that song? Hints: rap, early 1990s, homonym of ski, opposite of high. ;) Last two hints give rapper's name away. lol

Well, I might've been wrong

Well, I might've been wrong about saying this rapper is a one hit wonder. He's got other hot songs, but I don't know if they got radio play. He can pay his bills, no question.

A single 20 something female

A single 20 something female here. I support individualism and hate the herd mentality. Although I'm monogamous I'm quite independent and don't pay too much attention to what other people think of me. I'll say and do whatever seems right to me but yes most women want to please others instead of swimming against the stream and standing up for their beliefs. They want to be approved by the society and they want to feel safe. Libertarians are in the minority for now so that maybe a reason why we don't see many libertarian females. I hope it changes and it better change because personally I can't possibly be in a relationship with a bleeding heart lefty Obama fan female. She has to be either a moderate conservative or a libertarian. (Yes I'm gay).

I'd like to mention one point though. You said "most women drop men like a bad habit as soon as they prove themselves to not be compliant and especially do not want to be with someone who "questions authority." I observed the opposite. If you noticed women are drawn to powerful figures and rebels such as rich men or rock stars. Not because these people are rich but because they're the authority themselves or they go against the authority. They're bad boys and bad boys get women chasing after them while the nice guys end up in the friend zone. I think women should find the rebellious self sufficient nature of libertarians very attractive.

Yeah, I noticed that too.

Most women (imo) drop guys when they are 'too' compliant lol.

I've never known women to be irresistibly attracted to followers, or 'yes' men, or kiss asses. Not at all.

I've never been exactly compliant with what other people or society thought of me, or what I *should* be doing instead of what I wanted to be doing.

That definitely never hurt me with the girls.

"nice guys end up in the friend zone"

Yep, seems to be a common denominator in a LOT of single people's relationship problems.

To me, it's all about showing both sides of the coin. Open up with your 'nice' side, and as soon as she opens up a bit (personality wise...), show some 'aggressive' behavior, usually in the form of body language.

I guess an overused example would be to open up with a joke, then momentarily lock eye contact while she's laughing.

I dunno, but it seems to work for me, and I'm certainly no prize pig.

A signature used to be here!

I am single but...

I have several characteristics that women tend to shy away from (in my experience, anyway).

First, I have been independent from a very early age. I cook, garden, keep a decent house, and I can repair almost anything from plumbing to electronics. I've had women tell me - "I need you to need me" - but the truth is that I was surviving just fine before I met them and would do so if/when they leave. I think it's much more attractive for people not to "need" each other, but rather "want" them around because they enjoy their company. I can "need" something without liking or loving it.

Second, I tell the truth. When someone asks me a question, they should be prepared for a straight answer. I try to be as gentle as possible, but I cannot tell people what they want to hear for the sake of keeping the peace. That - to me - is lying. Honesty is the best policy.

Third, I reserve the right to openly disagree with anyone at any time. True progress is only made when people confront the truth. Many people have misconceptions of the world. That is no secret, but it turns out that most people don't like to confront them. On the other hand, I will openly admit when I am wrong with little to no hesitation. I've always said that a person learns much more from being wrong than they'll ever learn from being right.

Fourth, I have a very long attention span. I can sit down and read a book or write for days at a time without doing much else besides stopping to eat or to get a drink. I've been known to read a book at parties if I get bored (and a book is available). I haven't met anyone yet that understands this quality. It goes back to making people feel that I don't need them.

Fifth, I refuse to be anyone but myself. I like me. Do you like you?

If there are any women that think they are interested to take me for a whirl, I am 31 and live in Eastern Oklahoma. I do have many redeeming qualities. I am funny, quick witted, tall (6'7"), blue eyes, intelligent, and I am always smiling and typically in a good mood.

For the most part, I have given up on relationships. I do not put up with drama, and it will make me leave very quickly. I would like to meet a woman that stops and thinks before she acts rather than acting solely based on emotional whims (there must be some out there). I enjoy the company of a good woman, but most of the women that tend to be attracted to me are either too old for me or married. Attracting unavailable women is the story of my life.

This is awesome

I came on here because my wife and I are both pretty rabid libertarian types (unbeknownst to us when we met), and we've been saying forever that if people from the daily paul met or pursued romantic relationships, a lot of very happy marriages would result... or civil unions, or anything else that ANYONE wants to call it when two people love each other enough to finally be willing to continue to find another person interesting every day or just spend all their time together.

As we're reading these, I'm seeing a lot of the same characteristics in the men on this page that, many would say, make me "anti-social." These traits (like yours) are the ones I wish more guys I knew possessed. I am finding myself with a lot fewer "buddies" these days. Btw, not saying you'll ever find one, but women who will love you for the things that make you the way you are do exist. I found one. She doesn't enjoy the fact that I would rather read than talk to her friends when they are over. At times, she has laid into me pretty hard because I have lost control in agruments with people during "civil conversation" time... usually tends to be her family and the reason we get that far is because they understand me more than any other people I know and they also argue as much as any people I've ever met.

Good luck. Try not to compromise, it might come back to haunt you later in life. For the record, when you find the actual right one, your entire life will be spent compromising, which in my house means giving in if she can't be convinced on the "small things" since we agree on so much at the core.
