Even though the notion of hippies is connected with the ‘flower children’ from the 1960s, today a hippie girl is something different.
Hippie girls from this era combine the best of the new and old worlds. That’s what makes them unique, irresistible and easy to love.
A hippie girl is the most amazing, open-minded and free-spirited creature you will ever have the fortune to meet. She is bound to make some kind of mark, even if she only slightly touches you.
Maybe there is a little bit of hippie inside of every girl. And if you are her or one of the lucky guys dating her, you will recognize her in most or all of the characteristics listed below.
1. She doesn’t play by the rules
She has her own set of ideas and they all advocate love and peace. She rejects all conventions and societal rules and she doesn’t support strict rules of any kind.
She believes in open-mindedness, human rights and, above all, freedom. She is always ready to help and she will do more for others than she ever would for herself.
She is her own leader and she doesn’t mind being an outsider. She is comfortable with who she is. All of this makes her someone to admire.
2. She makes love, not war
She is the ultimate peacemaker and she would love nothing more than for all wars to end. She can’t stand violence of any sort and considers it completely unnecessary.
She is very passionate about it and not afraid to say it aloud. That makes her even more appealing and even if it’s not her intention to provoke that, this kind of passion can’t go unnoticed.
3. She always looks on the bright side of things.
She is genuine and positive. She keeps her distance when she feels negative energy within someone. If she chose you, know that she sees something within you. You are full of positive energy and good vibrations.
A smile is her weapon of choice and there is no chance she remains unnoticed. The good vibes she sends only attract more goodness, so she is the kind of person you want to spend your time with, as she radiates positivity around you, too.
4. She is spontaneous.
Last-minute plans are her thing. This young woman doesn’t like to plan ahead as she is more of a ‘go with the flow’ kind of girl.
If somebody suggests a road trip, she will say ‘yes’ without thinking. If there is a good concert in town, she will put on her dancing shoes and go.
She takes all the best from life and doesn’t like the burdens that plans carry with them.
5. She creates adventure wherever she goes.
This boho girl is an adventurer herself, so she creates them as she goes. She creates them out of thin air because where other people fail to see anything, she sees miracles.
She is a wanderer who is not afraid to be lost. She doesn’t need Google Maps because she always finds her own path to follow, explores new places, meets new people, makes some new friends and shares her hippie love all around.
She doesn’t take photos and video clips just so she can share them on social media, it’s much more important to her to capture moments and collect beautiful memories.
6. Traveling is her lifestyle.
She isn’t the settling type. She might consider it one day with the right kind of man but she has a wanderlust inside that cannot be stopped quite yet.
She is in love with all that traveling brings, regardless of the destination. Walking barefoot on the sandy beaches of California or climbing Kilimanjaro—it really doesn’t matter because she will enjoy it just the same.
She doesn’t mind traveling alone. But if she finds her travel buddy and her soulmate all in one person, she will be over the moon. So the best thing a guy can be for her is somebody who joins in on her adventures.
7. Her boho style will leave you breathless
There isn’t anyone in this world who won’t be amazed by the hippie style. A simple T-shirt, maxi skirt, and dresses of all colors look so modern yet so unique.
Her long hair is perfect for trendy hairstyles that she personalizes with headbands, feathers, and sparkly accessories.
She likes piercings and tattoos but she won’t cover her whole body with them. The beauty is in the details so a little peace sign tattooed or a small nose piercing is enough to make a statement.
This boho style is not something just anybody can pull off—it’s reserved for this beautiful girl.
8. She is at one with nature.
She is the kind of girl who is not afraid of spending the night in a tent or under the open sky. Nature is home for her.
She will make your dates in nature memorable. She is the one you can gaze upon as she walks barefoot on the grass. She’ll show you what skinny-dipping in a lake is all about. She’ll make you sleep underneath the stars and all you will wish for is her.
9. She is music.
Music moves her inside and out. She feels the music. Lyrics are not just words, they all have a deeper meaning. Her dancing resembles magic or some kind of out of body experience.
Woodstock Music Festival is still affecting American and world trends to this day and it serves as an inspiration for her as well.
She will drag you to so many concerts and festivals that you probably never even knew existed but they will be something you only can experience with her.
10. She admires intelligence in a man
She is one of those rare bohemian girls who has the hots for a smart brain, a true sapiophile. For her, there is nothing sexier in a man than his intelligence.
She is smart herself and she likes to be with somebody who is her equal. She likes deep and philosophical discussions.
Even if you don’t seem to see eye to eye about certain things, she finds these kinds of conversations stimulating.
11. She is all for sexual freedom yet she is romantic and loyal.
She doesn’t like people putting labels on love. She supports all sexual orientations and advocates people’s freedom to choose for themselves.
Having a great sex life is important to her but that doesn’t mean she will jump into bed with just anybody. She has to have a deep intellectual, spiritual and emotional connection in order to be that intimate with somebody.
12. She doesn’t tolerate jealousy
Dating for a hippie girl is all about freedom. Jealousy makes her feel restricted, burdened and oppressed.
She is one of the most honest and loyal girls you will ever come across, which is why she doesn’t see the need for jealousy of any sort.
Also, because of her nature, she always makes new friends and likes spending time with people, so she never allows herself to feel restrained from doing so.
If you are the jealous type, you’ll lose her before you even begin to properly date.
13. She is down-to-earth.
She is so easy to be around and a lot of people enjoy her company. She has a heart as open as her mind and that’s why she has a lot of different friends.
She never looks down on people and no matter how they treat her, she always treats them with respect. She has nothing but love for all people.
Of course, negative people won’t have a place in her life but that doesn’t mean she will hate them. It means that she will simply avoid spending time with them.
She values her friendships, so she gets validation in return. In a relationship, she puts the friendship part at its foundation. There is nothing better than having a girlfriend and a best friend all in one person.
14. She doesn’t like materialistic things
She likes the simple things in life. She doesn’t understand people’s constant chase for money and things. She collects memories and moments.
When you want to buy her a gift, stop by the nearest record store and buy her a vinyl record that she doesn’t have in her collection or something hipster from a retro store that she would love.
For her, it’s the thought that really counts, as she will see that a person she shares her time with was really listening.
15. She is the best listener you will ever meet.
As she expects her man to pay attention, she does the same. She listens and remembers the important things about you.
She will keep every secret you trust her with, even those deepest and darkest ones. She is one of those rare people left who value honesty and someone’s privacy above all and she will guard your secrets till the day she dies.
16. She likes the little big things about you.
She likes the way your hair looks in the morning. She loves your smell—it drives her crazy. She will make you feel special and appreciated because, in her eyes, you truly are.
She will inspire you to be creative. A girl hippie will make you use your imagination like you never did before.
17. She is independent.
She can live without you but she doesn’t want to and that makes all the difference.
If you are the right guy for her, she would choose you any day over anybody else. She needs a man who will welcome her self-sufficiency, a man who is independent and has his own life.
Clinginess suffocates her. If you want to be the right one for a hippy girl, you have to have your own interests, friends, aspirations and, in a nutshell, your own life. Only then will you be the most important part of her amazingly unique life.
18. She can’t be tamed
She doesn’t like men who try to change her. She knows she is not perfect and nor is she trying to be. But she is true to who she is.
She expects a man to accept her for who she is because she would do him the same courtesy. She needs a man who will set her free—that will bring her closer to him.
In trying to tame her, you would just make her pull away as far as possible from you. Don’t even try to do that to her.
19. She is big on forgiveness.
She is reasonable and she knows nobody is perfect. If the two of you are in a fight, she will choose an argumentative conversation before screaming and shouting.
She believes that conversation can save people a lot of heartache and pain. She will forgive you with ease if she sees that you are truly sorry and most importantly, she never holds grudges.
Be careful though—she is very intuitive and she will pick up on fake apologies. Be honest and make sure you mean what you say.
20. You will admire her strength
A hippie woman draws her strength from the difficulties life has put her through. She owes her strength to those things that almost killed her. Fortunately, they only made her stronger.
She never panics or creates unnecessary drama. She knows everything has a solution. And whatever happens, she knows that bad days are bound to pass. She accepts bad days as a normal part of life. She deals with things with such ease that you can’t help but admire her.
21. She will inspire you.
She is like nobody you ever met before. Everything about her is something new and unseen. She is the simplest girl you have ever met but at the same time, the most extraordinary creature you have ever met.
Everything she is and everything she does will inspire you to do more. She will make you think outside the box. She will open up brand new horizons.
She will never force you to be anything but yourself. But her closeness will make you discover a side of yourself you never knew existed. She will inspire you to greatness just by being by your side and supporting you.
22. The only love she recognizes is the one between two souls
She can’t give her heart to just anybody. She believes in love that happens when two souls meet and connect on a deeper level.
The love she believes in can’t be compared to some flaky, half-love of the modern era. The love she feels is far from skin-deep and superficial.
For her, it is all about connection. It’s about your souls connecting into something that is beyond this world.
