Step 1: STEP ONE: the Right Place. the Right Products. the Right Gal.
I'm not sure about the rest of you, but I am tired of the packaged, silicon enhanced variety of "beauty" that the world has been pushing. While I can certainly acknowledge the beauty of those individuals, and I certainly do not mean offense, I am looking for a more natural look. Interestingly this metaphor applies to our food and daily products too. Sure, it may seem appealing... but often it's a bit bland, over manufactured, and in the end just plain bad for you. Perhaps you agree.
All of that aside, we're looking for an organic gal who loves organic food and cares for the environment. What better place to start than a health food store?! Scout your location, live the lifestyle! Source your food from local producers when possible and focus on the total economic impact of the food and products you're using. This will both put you in the right place to meet such a lovely lady and offer the additional benefits of health and happiness. Bonus!
Step 2: STEP TWO: Meet and Greet. Taking the Plunge!
This one seems pretty straight forward, but it has its own complications. Needless to say, if you stuck to step one you're stacking the odds in your favor.
1. You're eating the right things and feeling/looking healthier for it.
2. That overwhelming sense of doing good for your planet is a sure confidence builder.
3. After learning to appreciate the benefits of using local, organic products you've got a built-in conversation starter!
So then, what are you waiting for? See that beautiful woman by the produce section? Introduce yourself! Ask her what her favorite fruit is. Ask how long has she been shopping at the local market. Keep it simple, casual and welcoming. If you get nervous, let her do the talking and above all don't become too invasive.
If all goes well, ask her if she'd like to eat lunch some time.
Now then, that wasn't so hard. It's a good thing your breath was so fresh from that organic toothpaste!
Step 3: STEP THREE: Dating and Dining. an Ongoing Organic Quest!
Whether it's the first date, the second, or the seventy-third... keep in mind the reason to this rhyme. She likes organic products, clean energy, and earth friendly entertainment. While there are any number of options to fulfill these basic interests... I suggest a picnic and/or swim at your local lake. (Or ocean if you're so lucky.)
Why a lake? Well, because the chlorine in most pools is amazingly harsh on both your skin and the environment. Prepare some sandwiches, some fruit and some filtered tap water in reusable containers. Remember to clean up after yourself, and avoid using chemical laden non-organic sun block or tanning lotion. Respect the rules of your local authority and swim only where it is permitted.
The local wildlife will love you for your efforts, and with enough time, care and consideration... maybe she will too!
Of course there are other dining options, and sometimes swimming isn't in the cards. Perhaps a nature walk, some biking in a park or on a trail, or even some volunteer work with local conservation efforts.
I still recommend swimming though!
Step 4: STEP FOUR: Living the Life, Making It Stick. Wedding Bells?
Ah yes, you've found a compatible partner. You both share interests and desires. Your hearts are beating at a thousand organic beats per minute. Mission success! Right?
Now that you've reached this point you're in love. You know where to get the best local produce. Perhaps your home is adorned with solar panels, wind turbines and rain collectors. You invite her over for a lovely meal of organic beef and produce, lovingly prepared in your solar ovens. Your electric modified convertible willingly acts as your steed, transporting you about in your new state of environmental awareness.
You love her, she loves you. You're both committed to each other and the security of future generations. Do you ask her to marry you?!
I'm afraid that one I can't help you with, but I suggest you follow your heart. I'm sure glad I did. I wish you the best. The important thing to remember is that no matter whom you end up with, or how you met them, preservation of our bodies and environment is always relevant.
Step 5: Conclusion, and Author's Comments.
Thank you for reading this Instructable. I realize it is by no means a step-by-step guide to winning the heart of a prospective mate, or changing to a productive organic lifestyle. Its true intent is to provide a rough outline in a slightly comedic tone. By no means am I suggesting that your sole motivation for going organic or "green" should be to seek a date, though it certainly couldn't hurt!
I hope that you enjoyed it, and I hope it will motivate you to change your lifestyle in an eco-friendly fashion. Don't forget to vote for this Instructable in the Epilog Challange!
NOTE: The pictures depict my wife and myself. Our seven year anniversary is next month, and we couldn't be happier. Sharing similar ecological goals and general interests is a proven boon in my case. I hope you all can have such a positive life-experience.
