i am a young female herper. every guy i have ever dated was either terrified/grossed out by my animals (especially the big snakes), or was like "you like reptiles, so you're insane, but we can work around that."

Roy, very interesting your theory.

Vanan and I met b/c of herps and it seems we stay together b/c of herps!! There's been some darn rocky times however, but we're over three years now.

Why exactly do you believe herper couples burn out? B/c of finaces? Squables?? Should I dump Vanan find myself a rich non herper boy and live in paradise? <laugh>

Actually, I can't imagine it any other way now. We talk "shop" a lot, but we have so many other varied interests. Plus we're pretty darn seperate. Seperate collections, seperate herp food bills , seperate computers, heck we pay our food seperately. There is only one thing we share, and that's one bank acct (we have our own bank accts in different banks), which I don't even use! Just today we decided that "our" third cat belongs to Vanan. We don't even touch each other snakes or open containers or feed.

I think that's the key though. We have long since drawn the line on what's mine is mine and what's his is his.

Sorry to hijack. I've just found it interesting how many herper couples DON'T seperate their collections.

There are alot more female herpers now than when i first got involved in this craziness back in the 60's and 70's. Trust me there were none. Come to think of it,there were hardly any herpers period. I personally now know quite a few female herpers and I think its great. Where were you 30 years ago? An Oldtimer

well I wouldn't say there weren't that many herpers, its just it wasn't so public as it is now.

It was sortof an underground thing back then. I can think of at least a dozen female herpers that have been around for along time you just never met them or heard of them unless you were at one of teh herp parties/BBQ's

Ive been around this hobby now for quite some time i suppose, and ive been to lots and lots of shows, had the chance to meet lots of members whether live or in chat or just here on the forums...and there is an abundance of single herper girls, single herper boys etc. I think if you want to find them...you have to physically get off your p.c. and go and look. Hit the shows, meet the ppl you talk to on here everyday...it wont take long. Im not sure if i agree with Katt's mental picture of most herper girls but i have met a few that are out there lol. Most of them are great however and im a fan of anyone who loves and cares for animals...i think its a great quality...ever tried to date someone who doesn't like animals!!! Roy, i have to agree with your conclusions on ppl dating each other in the hobby...i find the exact same thing with the majority of relationships ive seen happen over the years on here.....maybe thats another reason i have no herps :P But seriously....for those who want to meet and get to know someone such as a single herper chick or dude i have two words for you.....CHAT ROOM!!!
