Looking For Love

Remember the meterosexual trend? (Meterosexuals are  self-aware and often self-centered heterosexual men who are concerned about their appearance and who display characteristics—love of art, culture and shopping—which are more typically seen in gay men.)

Well, meterosexuals have now been replaced by 'lumbersexuals.'
The lumbersexual man is essentially an urban woodsman.

He is brawny, wears expensive flannel, has an impressive beard that is painstakingly unkempt and represents the ultimate sense of manliness.

The look of the lumbersexual man can be described as something similar to a hipster-outdoorsman hybrid.

However, you won’t find him in the forest chopping down trees.

The lumbersexual man traded in his days of tree felling for hitting up hipster bars, and instead of wielding an axe, he now carries around a MacBook Pro.

I never got the meterosexual thing, and I damn sure don't get the whole lumbersexual thing, but evidently many others do. There is even an online dating site for lumbersexuals.
Men all over the world are growing their beards, getting tattoos and styling their hair.  There are people all over the world who love guys like us.  Until now there has been no place to find each other. Luckily now there is LumberMatch.
As if that's not bad enough, there's a whole passel of other niche dating sites available for the discerning (or weird) among us.

Sea Captain Date - Find Your First Mate
Sea Captain Date is the only place for Sea Captains to connect with men and women who share a love of the ocean.

Date Skaters
... skating is not only a sport or lifestyle, it is something you have in your soul; and if you want to date a skater, you have a lot to learn.
Farmers Only
Sowing seeds of romance can be a hard row to hoe.
 Date British Guys
Because sweet nothings whispered in a British accent sound so much better...
Alikewise is a dating site that allows you to find people based on their book tastes. Anything from cooking to politics to yoga — we think we can find others who would like to talk to you.
The Atlasphere
Of course, if you’re a little more specific about your literary tastes — namely, you only read Ayn Rand — there’s The Atlasphere. For those searching for a little bit of Randian romance, head here.
I understand that meeting the right person can be difficult. And the world is a harsh, lonely place that is better navigated with someone by your side. So while I may poke fun at these dating sites, it is a gentle, good-natured ribbing, not a cruel mocking of those who seek comfort in the arms of others like them.


I hope everyone out there is as fortunate as I am in (finally) finding someone to share life with.

No matter how out of the mainstream their tastes might be...

Is there a dating site for men who wouldn't be seen in public with any woman who would go out with them?

Reminds me of the guys who dress like cowboys, but aren't. As my hubby says, "All hat and no cow."

All plaid and no ax...

I'm seriously ready to chop my beard off over this shit. If it ain't Duck Dynasty jokes, it's this...

P.S. I have spent many happy hours with either a duck gun or an ax in my hands, thankyouverymuch.

Bear, I don't think you have to worry about being confused with a lumbersexual.

Duck Dynasty, or ZZ Top, however, is another story... :-)
