What are the chances of a guy finding a girlfriend in Anchorage who wants to or is willing to move to semi-rural Alaska. Places such as small communities far out on the road system or even the Bush?

Have you tried hanging out on 4th Ave. in Anchorage?

Not really. That seems like mainly a bar scene. I'm not really into that.

A lot of Mat-Su is very rural, so I don't see why not. I think "a guy" could. Whether you can is more about who you connect with and choose to pursue relationships with than about the collective traits of, like, the hundreds of thousands of female residents of the region.

You'll find a lot of rural, bush type women there. Some may already have a place out there and just need a good sober man to help then get back. Or you could always put an ad on Tinder. Maybe hang out at REI too...

Ah, it's probably just better to move to wherever you want to and find a woman when you're established.

Plus women from anchorage would always be b****ing about things regarding a rural lifestyle. They'd probably even demand silly things like "indoor plumbing" and "central heating" and "Internet access". Who has time for that?

You want a real rugged Alaskan woman who grew up living rurally and who already knows how to poop in a outhouse, split the firewood, cut up a moose, and fix your truck.

LOL. Idk, OP. I know a few seasonal employees who've ended up staying because they met a guy.

Tinder??? Come on, stiff, be a friend, not a foe! 1984, not sure how well versed you are in online dating, but Tinder is the land of hookups... of the sexual variety. It seems like you're looking for more than just getting laid, maybe? edit: Although, no judgment if that is your objective! ha

I didn't know that about Tinder. Guess I'm not as hip as I thought I was.

Well now that yall know, I'm sure we'll see a spike in Tinder accounts! haha Kidding, kidding. Seriously though, this is one of those pieces of information that's filed under "things I wish I didn't know."

I am totally in favor of your REI suggestion, though. Sportsman's, the book store. Whatever. You get the idea.
