The modern day hippy is often referred to as either a neo-hippy (who are very much like the late 60's hippy in dress, views, and outlooks) or else they can be a granola-hippy (those who are not really into political activism, but are into green eco friendly vegetarian life styles). There are two other types of modern hippies, but they are not really hippies at all, just hippie wannabes. In my personal experience, one of the best kinds of women to date when you’re looking for a special someone is a modern neo-hippy or granola-hippy chick. So these are not activists from the late sixties, although you shouldn’t discount anyone based on age. Just look at Cybill Shepherd, Sharon Stone, Madonna, Sigourney Weaver, Debra Winger, Ellen Barkin, Beverly D'Angelo, Kathleen Turner, and Margot Kidder for examples of 60's generation women who are still pretty darn hot! In any event, the modern day neo-hippy or granola-hippie will take a lot of their lifestyle cues from the 60's hippie movement.
What you will tend to notice is that women from both of these groups do exhibit some common tendencies. They wear flowing sundresses or jeans and may even wear flowers in their hair. (They wear sandals and love to dance around campfires.They will wear flip-flops, or simple sandals, and go barefoot as often as practicable. They are uninhibited and thing nothing of dancing around a campfire on the beach, or just relaxing, looking at the stars, and contemplating the infinite.These ladies prefer being barefoot, and when footwear is necessary, flip-flops or simple sandals are preferred. Running shoes are for dress up occasions.They skinny-dip whenever possible. You might find them teaching the secrets yoga or tai-che, working at a health food bar, teaching crafts, or working with animals. They will drink beer or wine (especially if it is home made from scratch), smoke grass, perhaps indulge in magic mushrooms occasionally, but they will never touch the chemical narcotics that trapped the 60's generation. In short, they’re awesome!
Where to Meet
Of course to meet these tantalizing women, you need to go where they hang out.
Drum circles – This is where a lot of hippy chicks go to dance and play their drums. Fill up an empty vitamin bottle with dry macaroni, and you’ve got a shaker to play. Mingle!
Pilates class – Hippies love to breathe and stretch. Put your mat behind theirs for the best view.
Indie music festivals – Burning Man or Rainbow festivals are good. Check out any local free paper or telephone poles for free or inexpensive local festivals of this nature.
Organic markets/health food stores – Check our stores that are more into naturally prepared herbs and foods. They tend to shun capsules and the like as over packaging. Herbal tea stores is another likely spot, as is the organic aisle at the grocery store, or organic farmers markets.
Lectures on environmental issues – these ladies are all about green living, low carbon impact lifestyles and organic foods. They seldom miss these kinds of lectures.
Pros to Dating Hippy Chicks
The most admirable thing about these women is that they tend to be happy with very little. That means that you can have a date where you only go out for a walk (preferably in a park where they can take their shoes off) and follow up with a snack at a health food bar or a herbal tea shop. What that means is that they are not a heavy drain on your pocket book. And if you ever get serious enough to marry her, although she will likely be as happy with just living with you, these thrifty attitudes will carry into the long-term relationship. You can live the rest of your life on a budget and never feel cheap about it! Plus, hippy chicks usually don’t care about your income, so if you’re not making the big money, you don’t have to hide that fact.
They are not big on makeup. They may go for natural flower fragrances, rub a red flower petal on their cheeks as a blusher, and bite their lips a bit to make them redder. Tallow would be used as a lip-gloss or skin cream. The only area where they may concede to heavily manufactured products is sunscreens. Because of the lack of makeup, they do not spend hours in the bathroom putting on their war paint. And the biggest plus is that if you are attracted by their looks, those same great looks are there after a shower, when asleep, and even when just hanging out. One of the great things is that they are willing to stop and smell the roses, both figuratively and literally. These are not the types of women that you usually run into, who are driven to outdo their friends in everything.
And the two biggest advantages to dating a hippy chick: she’ll probably be into tantric sex, and rarely wear a bra.
Cons to Dating Hippy Chicks
Not wearing a bra can be a drawback as well if she had more than her share of estrogen and thus is well endowed. Gravity is not a friend to large breasted women, but at least you can see what you are going to get up front ;-).
Additionally, hippy chicks usually have shaving issues. She might have a hairy downstairs, or legs, or armpits. Some guys like that though, and even if she does have “winter bush”, it’s the treat under the bush that’s important. In extreme cases you will find women who do not believe in deodorants. But you will figure that out early on when it is easy to walk away from them. No matter what she looks like, you have to be happy with the way you lady smells..
Of course, you may find that she will smoke all your grass, and is a lot handier than you are at a lot of things, and that can be disappointing and just down right demeaning.
So go get them and happy hunting!
