Dating A Neo-Hippy Or Granola Child
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.
Females from both of these groups will tend to be similar in a few ways. Like their 60's counterparts, they are into everyday clothes most of the time and seldom see the need to dress up fancy for anything. Jeans and a loose blouse, flaring skirts and a peasant blouse, or long flowing dresses are the norm. Their hair is invariably worn long and free.

Running shoes are for dress up occasions. They skinny-dip whenever possible. You can find them working with animals, volunteering to help young children, lecturing on healthy cooking, working in health food or herbalist stores, and giving lectures on Eco-friendly living. 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
If you want to maximize your exposure to this new generation of hippy chicks, there are certain places you can go where they naturally congregate.
Drum circles – Just show up, chances are they will let you watch, and if you bring something that makes a noise, like a gourd with pebbles in it, you can likely join in.
Pilate's class – A clean life style demands regular workouts, and the simple mat exercises are most appealing to them. Find a class and put your mat at the back of the room for the most enjoyment as you improve your health.
Indie music festivals – Burning Man or Rainbow festivals are good. Read local free weeklies, or check Craig's list online for likely music festivals of this nature.
Organic markets/health food stores – Hippy chicks love a gluten-free, organic diet. If you’re at the same store buying similar foods, you could suggest trading recipes…
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. These are women who will not dent your wallet seriously, and will be all the happier for it. They are fish out of water in a fancy restaurant, and would likely not eat any of the offered food anyway. On top of that, if you are just getting by with the job you have, they really do not care. They are into loving you for what you are, not what you have.
They don’t wear a lot of make-up or perfume, which lets you see her in her natural state. What you see is what you get. They will look pretty much the same in the morning, or after a shower. If you like what you see, you get to see exactly that all the time. As an added plus, they’re usually easy going, compared to a business minded “modern woman”. They don’t mind relaxing in a hammock or napping under a tree in the park.
They will tend to freely walk around naked in the privacy of your home. They usually have slender bodies that are a pleasure to behold and be held, and even when dressed, they seldom need the confining form of 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. You have to like how your lady smells.
So go get them and happy hunting!
