Date a Girl Who Climbs Mountains

Date a girl who climbs mountains. Date a girl who conquers steep slopes with a towering 60Liter backpack and muddy shoes. She will look at every challenging mountain with a smile on her face because she embraces adventure and she finds utmost exhilaration upon reaching every summit.

You will see how she loves and appreciates nature. Colorful floras and faunas delight her and will stop on the trail just to take its picture. Tell her you’re hungry. She will share her zip lock of assorted trail food: gummy bears, jell-O, Hershey’s kisses, granola bars and cookies. She will get her first aid kit when she sees a scratch on your arms.

Once she reaches the summit, she will spread her arms, close her eyes and lift her head up, breathing fresh air with a smile on her face. You will look at her and you will see bliss. She will sit there and wait for the sunset, gazing into the vast horizon. She will tell you stories about her first climb, when she encountered a spider in her tent and she will ask you questions about how you pack your backpack. Your conversation will suddenly stop when she sees the sunset. She will nail her eyes to the fiery sun as the sky ablaze with stunning shades of purple, pink, orange and red. Twilight bores you but you’ll notice that she still has this sweet smile on her face and you’ll wonder why…

She will surprise you with gourmet cooking in the mountains, just using a small burner, a small pot and limited spices and you’ll wonder how she made it so delicious. Sit with her on the grass and offer her a warm jacket while watching the moon and the stars. Make coffee on her Nalgene bottle. She will continue to share stories and will crack jokes about how funny you looked like when you slipped on a swampy trail. You envy her that after 8-10 grueling hours of trekking she still has this energy to make you laugh. When you ask why she’s still smiling after sunset, she will answer “Because I can’t wait to see the sunrise”

Propose while the sun is peeking from the East. Tie the ring on the shoelaces of her muddy shoes. Hold hands while walking down the mountain and take a side trip to a waterfall nearby.

When you marry a girl who climbs, the first time you see her walk elegantly on a flat ground is when she walks down the aisle towards you. She looks at you as if she’s looking at her long awaited sunrise…A lady of beauty, finesse and strength combined she will be. She will look gorgeous on her dress with flowers on her hair and a Suunto Altimeter watch on her arm. That’s the girl you will work up the mountains together, forever, literally and figuratively.

Expect a separate room for her outdoor stuffs. Get used to granola bars and jell-Os in the fridge and boxes of zip locks on the grocery list.

Love a girl who climbs mountains and she will share her positive outlook in life with you. Ask her why she climbs mountains and she will answer “Because it’s there”. Ask her why she married you and she’ll get your hand, put it on her heart and will say “Because you’re here”
