    Not being alone is one formula for survival in a calamitous event. I cannot imagine myself being alone during an apocalypse or even a great disaster like a strong earthquake. I'm sure to lose my composure and panic is a sure thing. But if I have a companion, at least my fear will not be that overwhelming such that I would have the courage to think of what sane thing to do. And searching for a safe place is easier when there are 2 heads thinking.

    My Father used to say "two sheep heads are better than one". He used to say this whenever we were working together on something. I was never sure about the use of "sheep heads" as an example, but now I am older I think I get it :)

    I do not want to survive a shtf fan alone.

    I'm not afraid of being alone but having human company is preferred.
    Humans are social animals after all.
    If we weren't men would still live in caves alone beating their puds.
    Oh! Sorry of that was offensive.
    Prisoners in long term solitary confinement have gone quite mad.

    Not all humans are social animals, myself & my wife are certainly not. We enjoy each other's company, but prefer to be on our own.

    I am definitely not a social animal, I prefer to be alone than to be with others.

    Perhaps you might re-evaluate your thoughts on not being a "social animal".
    After all you are here on the internet and I suspect this isn't the only internet site you visit.
    If you and your mate prefer to be "on your own" why even marry in the first place?
    There are those that prefer to be alone however.
    In a shtf collapse being 100% alone might not be desirable.
    For various reasons.
    To each his own.
    As for me I DO live alone on my place in the woods.
    I tend NOT to socialize much because generally I don't care much for people unless they
    are of like mind.
    If I'd mention prepping like we discuss here to almost all the people I know they would think
    me quite odd, even a bit "tetched in the head".
    The few, very few, people that even know I prep or how many firearms and how much ammo I have,
    think I'm 5 fries shy of a Happy Meal.
    Part of my desire to have "things" like a nice car, guns, ammo, and other sporting goods comes from
    being a dirt poor kid with almost nothing.
    That said having "things" isn't an obsession, just nice but not a need.
    I think everyone should own at least one firearm for defense of self, family, friends.

    many people post SHTF could be left on their own, assuming that everyone alive now will be alive then is a big mistake.
    if someone cannot live a solitary life, if only for a short time until they find others, they may not be around for long.
    given that most people these days are reliant on "the system" and are not self reliant even in a small way, the agreed estimate of the survival rate will be somewhere around 5-10%, in the uk that's the population we had in the 18th century(1750).

    I'm hoping that if a shtf happens a stranded 20 year old bathing beauty model will stop by
    for a snake and coffee.
    Fat chance.

    Population reduction will not be even everywhere.
    In the cities maybe 99% will be dead in 12 months but in rural areas there maybe up to a 50% survival rate, some places may have little change.
    Most young people gravitate toward big population centres and most rural areas are old people towns, the best survival areas will be small towns with few old people but not many towns like that around!

    A country boarding school might be the go for survival potential, youth, knowledge, control, with the right leaders a ready made survival group, or pandamonium:eek:

    most people in the UK are 4 generations removed from the land, if not more, and most have no clue where their food comes from or how it is produced, once the power goes down the survival rate will be very low wherever they happen to live.
    ignorance can kill just as easily as disease or a bullet.
