    I think all you boys are crazy, and I wouldn't have it any other way. What natural disaster is in your area that could take out the heater- water or food supply- or even worse the ammo supply-
    wimmin types are rather interesting creatures. just do yer do and let her know this is how you plan to take care of her in a bad situation. SL

    My wife was kind of the same way and I didn't know what to do other than continue my prepping and then an idea hit me. We got to talking about it again and she hit me with the money in my preps then I hit her with "think of it as another form of life insurance" We gladly fork out big bucks every year for car, house, life insurance, medical policies and it is expensive out of the gate and we really so far have never seen a dime of it. Think of the preps as insurance and so far not one food item has gone to waste as we eat up the short term food as the date approaches. This was over a year ago and she hasn't said anything to me since about my preps and I think she even may understand a little, I hope so!

    TALK about it here on the forum. Just DO it at home. She'll notice shelves getting a bit fuller day-by-day, and she might wonder at your sudden interest in gardening, but once she starts to reach for the stuff on the shelf instead of going to the store she's in.

    My wife is so on board -- as long as I don't TALK about it -- that she does more than I do most of the time to prep. That's because we LIKE living from our preps instead of just seeing them as a hoarded room full for some unknown future disaster.

    heh I cant even convince the cat its a good idea. she hasn't been biting the garden plants so I left the door open for her to play on the patio. she was quiet for too long so I get up to check on her- and she was in the cucumber box covering the baby cucumbers like they were little poops. she may be a fine housekeeper- but shes no gardener. :/

    I cant help you, meng.

    just buy her jewelry or clothes. it's at the point now, if i spend $100 on something one paycheck my wife knows she has $100 to blow on something she wants...and then you could always take her to the range.

    simple really..dont talk about it to her. and if you do talk about it to her apply it to the reality of your situation. for example, i live on the gulf coast..we have hurricanes. i store food and water and other stuff for this reason. show her pictures and true stories of hurricane damage..it will sink in. can do the same for tornadoes, flooding ect

    for most wimmins in the US buying them jewelry and flowers will get you what you want!! Throw in some compliments and she will forget all about your tin-foil...

    Just be careful, too much of the above and she might stop being your girlfriend... Then the real trouble begins!
