I think you're right, age doesn't matter so much.  

It might be that some pictures and more information might help stir up some interest though?

More info. you asked for. ---My picture should have popped up by now. 69 and still alive. But I need
some one to share life with. Have been divorced many years now. Still work part time.  Am a homesteader/
survivalist. ( but not nuts about it )
The older I get, the harder it is to find a soulmate. Looking to move .( anywhere is possible ? )
Tired of the rat race & mega traffic.

Have been to many states,lived a lot of places. Now staying with son in New Jersey. I can move my
business any where. Work from home 2 hours a day. On SS  now, want to move.
Lets enjoy life. To many people think I' crazy for moving to a new area & starting again. They beleave
older one like me, should be watching TV all  day.--- NOT ME. Any ladies, young or old, call or write.
RAY

I'm sorry you've drawn the conclusion that it's age related.  Have you tried advertising yourself elsewhere too?  If you're thinking of doing this, perhaps mentioning your interests would help.

So you are able to buy your own farm!  Wow! Should you have mentioned this earlier?

Anyway, I admire your bravery in starting out anew with such a lifestyle.    👍

Hi Ray.  When you say you are willing to move, would you be willing to move out of the USA?

This one might work for you:
https://permies.com/t/135583/Budding-Homesteaders-Partners-Growth
Their Go-fund-me page hasn't  done much so you might get a foot in the door by offering to pay rent for a trial period.
