Few days ago, I was thinking about stereotypes. Generally, I’m against them but I couldn’t deny that some facts and features of people, categorize us and apart us from each other. This doesn’t mean that we’re all the same or that the whole world is divided into categories and groups. Of course, our character, the experiences of our past, the way we have grown and our temperament, the country we live in and the customs of our country, even the religion we believe – if we believe somewhere – makes us stand out from the rest. But nothing makes us stand out more than the way we think and our behavior toward ourselves and others.
Personally, I believe in myself and I think it’s very important to know who you are, what do you want to do in your life or which paths you want to follow. So, including myself, let’s talk about stereotypes. About Hippies’ stereotypes..
Most hippies are fascinating and, maybe, the most incredible people you’ll ever meet. They exude the aura of freedom and self-awareness and they seem to get along with themselves and that they have found the meaning of life. They’re happy people and they captivate the people they choose to surround themselves with. Their everyday life is surrounded by simple things – yet, of such great value to them – and most of them are artists or craftsmen. Their external appearance is as alternative as the way they live. They’re people who don’t believe in the rules or borders and, like a wild beast, they don’t intend to be imprisoned in any cage!
There are many reasons for you to have a hippie friend. If you never have, you should certainly consider it. You only live once, right? And, in case you date a hippie, you’d better be prepared to fall madly in love with him or her. Dating a hippie is an exciting experience and you’d better be ready for a wild ride!
So, here are 10 things you should know when you have a Hippie Friend:
They Love To Travel!
Hippies love to travel to new places and go on adventures. If you’re lucky, they’ll take you to places that you always wanted to go, but never thought you’d be able to. Life is one big adventure to the free spirited hippie.
They are more open minded!
Hippies are more open minded than other people. They’re not hung up on things like appearance, so you don’t need to stress if you think that your clothing isn’t so nice as you wanted to or if you’ve gained a little weight. They’ll value you for the person that you are on the inside.
They are great conversationalists!
Hippies are excellent conversationalists. They love talking about the deeper meaning of existence and how to make the world a better place. Hippies aren’t gossipers, which is why they make better friends and better life partners.
They are not materialistic!
Hippies are not materialistic people by nature. They understand that the best things in life are things that don’t come in fancy packages. You won’t feel pressured to buy your hippie friend an expensive gift, nor will you feel like you’re being used for your money. They’re not impressed by cool cars or designer clothes. They’re more frugal. Hippies have no need for material things, so they are also more frugal than most. They only spend money on the necessities of life, like food and bills. A hippie would rather make new clothes than buy new clothes.
They are less clingy!
Since hippies are free spirits and love independence, they’re less clingy than other people. They understand the need to give people space when they need it. They won’t be upset if you say that you’d prefer to spend tonight at home for some much needed me time.
They are spontaneous!
Hippies love spontaneity, so you’ll never be bored if you decide to date one. A date with a hippie could consist of busking on a street corner, going to a music festival or attending a protest. There’s always something fun to do when you’re dating a hippie.
They are happier!
Hippies are happier and more at peace with the world than others. They are more accepting of their flaws and they’ll be more accepting of yours as well. They emanate positive energy and those around them can’t help but feel a little happier too.
They are passionate people!
Hippies are passionate about the things that they believe in, like making the world a more beautiful place. Hippies have many causes that they care about, like world peace and saving the planet. This passion also translates into passion for the people that they love and, naturally, they make better friends and lovers.
They make you a better person!
Dating a hippie will inspire you to be a better person. Hippies are always looking for ways to feel more at peace with themselves and the world around them. They’ll encourage you to do the same. You’ll discover new things about yourself with each new day and you’ll learn how to be better at loving yourself.
They are free spirits!
Hippies are free spirited people, which is beneficial for the people lucky enough to date them in a lot of ways. Free spirits are more independent and, generally, less needy than other people. Hippies are filled with energy and light seems to radiate from them constantly.
