Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) April 20, 2012
With the explosion of information and interest surrounding the looming apocalypse, the fear of an economic implosion, nuclear threats, earthquakes, the Yellowstone super volcanic eruption, solar flares, and a possible viral pandemic, it's not surprising that interest in survival and doomsday preparation is growing at an amazing rate. The National Geographic Channel has a new, reality TV series “Doomsday Preppers”, which is creating a lot of excitement. Websites such as Survivalist.com, BePrepared.com, TheUrbanSurvivalistBlogspot.com, AmericanPreppersNetwork.com and PreparedSociety.com along with Survivalist Magazines are energizing the movement.
In his “Doomsday Dating”article on CNNMoney.com, Blake Ellis said, “Canning venison, shooting firearms, living off the grid and creating manure from human waste just aren't traditional interests many people look for when browsing mainstream dating sites like eHarmony or Match.com.”
“Kwink.com was developed for singles who were tired of trying to find the perfect mate through typical dating websites, which are based on looks and personality”, said Joel Peters, COO of Kwink, LLC. “Those are great attributes but we thought it was more appropriate to match soulmates with similar interests, traits, characteristics, or passions that we call “kwinks”. We think of
Kwink.com as “the dating site for the rest of us”.
“The website was developed around various communities based upon the different kwinks. The survivalist and doomsday prepper movement created a perfect fit for a dating community. Thus the Kwink.com/Survivalist Dating Community. There is definitely a hightened excitement in this area,” said Peters.
All of the gloom and doom scenarios, which have emerged and appear to be culminating in the near future, have created a real interest in many different cultural circles and life styles. Some have started to stockpile water and or dehydrated food. Others have gone a step further and have started urban farming and generating their own solar and wind power. Still others are preparing for the worst possible situations by buying guns, moving to the country, growing their own food and living totally off the grid. For those “survivalists” or “preppers” we are in a perfect storm scenario and anything could happen.
"Spend your remaining days with someone that shares your instinct to prepare and survive the end of the world as we know it. The Doomsday dating community is your place to connect, share and grow with similar people." http://www.kwink.com/dating-community/doomsday-preppers
The slogan, “be yourself” definitely defines a survivalist or prepper. Where else would you find a date who thinks baggy pants, a sweatshirt, a backpack and a bad hair day are sexy.
