If the last year has proved anything, it’s that meeting the right person — much less asking her or him out on a date — is more difficult than ever. Of course, that’s always been true if you live in remote areas like the Brown family, stars of the Discovery Channel’s “Alaskan Bush People.”
So what’s the secret?
You have to work with what you’ve got, as eldest son Matt Brown demonstrates in this video clip from the series illustrating his dating advice.
Four ‘Alaskan Bush People’ Dating Tips
First, as Brown notes, the hardest part about talking to a woman is getting started. So, go with what’s right in front of you … even if it’s explaining the historical origin of the polka dots on the dress she’s wearing.
After that, the most important thing is to be sincere. Of course, if you volunteer that spending too much time out on the Alaskan islands makes you go “loco,” that could be considered being honest to a fault.
Then, it’s good to get a laugh. Brown, for example, is prone to juggling water bottles. And the prospect that they may fly out of control at any second is always an attention grabber. While he says even people laughing at you is okay, however, shoot for having them laugh with you.
Finally, close the deal. It’s all for naught if you don’t get her digits, so don’t be afraid to ask for them. After all, who knows when you’ll have another opportunity, especially in remote areas such as where “Alaskan Bush People” is filmed.
Do as He Says …
Of course, giving people advice versus taking it yourself can be an issue. After Brown left the long-running “Alaskan Bush People” due to substance abuse problems, two women accused him of sexual assault in 2018. Although the local district attorney declined to prosecute him, the alleged incidents led to Brown’s estrangement from his family.
Despite being out of the public eye for the past few years, Brown is reportedly doing better these days. “Alaskan Bush People” fans are certainly pulling for him.
