Thank you. It sucks, but I suppose it is what it is. I'm a realist. Anything other than moving on seems unhealthy.

Hello R.
This is Jason from kansas city. Sorry for your loss, there has been a bit around me but nothing to compare with your situation. I am so happy that your strong about this especially for your kids. I'm an independant and free ranging lunatic that can fix anything. I work for myself, have a car full of tools and travel a lot for my work. I recently went to missoula for the permaculture conference in november and did some work for people while up there. I am in the middle of changing my life drastically. Sprouting, close to vegetarian, needing to leave the city (this one being worked on most heartily), reducing all I own to two vehicles worth and primitive living. My plan is to go to the missoula and idaho area this spring/summer, but need to go to iowa and nebraska on the way to help friends with their homes on the way. Wow, got all rambly. Long story short... my plans are fluid, my life is fluid, I want to meet more good people, I love all of missouri and have traveled it extensively. I live to help people and give what I can. So without further ado, can I help you? I am 41, love kids and animals and nature and yurts. Women are ok I suppose but we can talk about that later. Don't wanna come on too strong you know. Please respond with any questions to jasonfixit@gmail.com or pm me. Gotta go now and work. Bless you and your children.

wow....what a story you must have! I wonder if you will find anyone man enough to step up to the plate! What you really need, of course, is a village, or at least an extended family.....have you considered community living? Opening your site to interns and wwoofers might help out with the unending work as well. It's hard to imagine that your life is anything less than continual overwhelm, especially as I'll bet most of the kids are small and not much help yet.

I have considered intentional communities, but most are not open to a single adult with a bunch of kids. Plus, we have worked so hard on our little homestead, giving it up is really not an option. I'd much rather the community come to me I've looked into putting up a little cabin and trying to find someone interested in staying in it.

You could try taking in wwoofers. In the warmer months some might even be willing to camp. Beware of the drama they might bring though.....we learned to interview them carefully, ask for references, have a discrete timeframe agreed upon, and try to have them visit before committing. Of course you'll want to separate this endeavor from looking for a partner; but there is the side benefit of getting to know someone in a real-life situation over time, as opposed to the artificiality of dating. Two of my former girlfriends started out as farm interns.....

I would hope there are plenty such men left in the world, sad of a point as overall society has gotten to in general. I would think Missouri should be a bit easier place than a lot of places in that respect - I lived there for a while as a child and some of my best memories are there - really nice part of the country, and a lot of people into more self-reliant ways of living there. Once I do have money saved up for land, it's not unlikely at all that my destination will end up being Missouri, as I can buy there is land that's inexpensive, remote, and has minimal property taxes, perfect for a self-reliant lifestyle. I'm personally hoping to have a big family, and would love the opportunity to meet somebody like this - if only the timing and location were closer! I hope that the "real" men in Missouri can realize the wonderful opportunity that the sad/unfortunate loss has brought (my sincere condolences to R Fracassa), and not let fears get in the way of that.

Hey, are you still in search of someone? Probably a long shot since this was posted so long ago. But worth a shot. You're a cutie.
