Me:

First, the physical because that's how it usually starts, right?  I'm 5'1,” size 2/4.  Small in stature, big in heart.   I have long, dark brown hair, dark brown eyes, big lips, and am “easy on the eyes.”  I love dressing up (the outfits, the heels, the hair, the nails, the makeup, etc.), but I also love throwing my hair back in a braid, putting on a pair of old jeans and a t-shirt and getting my hands (and inevitably my face ) dirty outside.

I am typically a happy person and find joy in even the smallest of things: baby seedlings, sunshine, chickens being chickens, my silly dogs, etc.  I'm a Sagittarius through and through (except for the fear of commitment).  I have a great sense of humor and an easygoing manner, but I've been called a “pistol” (I am a fire sign and born in the year of the Dragon, so it's beyond my control  ).  I am very affectionate, honest, unwaveringly loyal, and prefer a compromise where we're both happy to me getting my way and my partner being unhappy.  I've always felt the need to stand for what I believe in and be myself, even if it makes me the odd one out.   

I have an insatiable thirst for knowledge: permaculture (of course!), natural health and healing, nutrition, science, the supernatural, languages, animals – the list is endless.  Aside from the occasional concert or going out for dinner and a movie, I prefer to stay home (dinner and a movie at home is even better!).  I enjoy watching movies (anything other than horror and gore), reading, listening to music (everything from metal to hip hop and from Latin to Arabic) or podcasts, and working on my land.  I can, however, have fun doing anything, depending on the company.

I live on 5 acres in a small farming community in Northwestern Illinois and am working on converting 3 acres of my property into a fruit/nut silvopasture (poultry and maybe a few pigs), with a half-acre or so devoted to berries and annuals.  I'd like to develop this part of my land into a permaculture business.  The location is ideal as I live off of a main road that connects two towns.  I'd also love to develop this place into a homestead with a wonderful man by my side.

You:

Again, it all starts with the physical because one can't help what one is attracted to.  I happen to be attracted to tall (at least 5'11”) Caucasian men.  While I'm nowhere near perfect, I stay in decent shape through healthy eating, exercise, and working outside, so I would expect the same from you (a few extra pounds are okay).  Tattoos are a bonus.   

I'm looking for a worldly man, someone who has lived, seen things, done things, been through things and has come out the better for it in the end.  Occasional “illicit” drug use is okay, as long as it's of natural origin (i.e., no pills, meth, etc.).  The same with alcohol - all in moderation.

I value compassion, strength, leadership, honesty, loyalty, and humor in a man far more than what he does for a living.  I work a full-time job in addition to working on my permaculture project and am looking for a good, loving, hardworking man who is supportive of and excited about building something beautiful together, someone who would be happy to be my business partner and (hopefully) eventually my partner in life. 

If this sounds like you, I'd love to hear from you (and about you).

I will be updating this post and pics in the coming weeks, but in the meantime, a few pics might be helpful. These were taken in October and December of last year. (EDIT: These are not posting right-side up for whatever reason so if a moderator could rotate these for me, I would be most appreciative.  )

New to this site.  Don't even have much of a profile yet.  Saw yours and thought we might have similar interests.  I'm not looking to bred or raise children.  I need a hard working woman who does not mind getting her hands dirty.  Interested in moving to Kansas and living on a 180 acre farm with 60 acres of trees bordered by a river and creek?  It is rural America at its finest.  Four hours from any major city (i.e. Kansas City, Denver).   I'm not looking to bred children.  I'm 62 y.o. white male 5'11" long when laying horizontal.  6' when on the inversion table.  Traveled and worldly.  Speak some Spanish and some Russian.  Live in a 450 sq ft home that I built.  Off grid and solar.  Will send you a pic of me if you are interested.

HI Dee in Illinois land of Lincoln,
I like your vision, goals,  and sense of humor. Chickens being chickens, got a chuckle from me. And you sound enterprising. I'm 54 yo and would love keep tabs to see how your progressing and lend a hand sometime. I was raised overseas and am comfortable most places, enjoy exploring. Am going around the country consulting in permaculture and renewable energy. Also doing plant surveys and build things sometimes. I enjoy being entrepreneurial and managed my own plant nursery.
Someone once said I look and reminded them of Lincoln. Without the beard lol. Less hair. Have some male thinning hair syndrome. How is it to have all that wonderful hair? Will leave it there for now. I can be reached at childscrick@yahoo.com. Take care and best wishes.

David, thank you for your response to my post. Your place sounds wonderful. However, as you can see from my post, I am looking for someone much closer to my age. I wish you the best of luck in your search.

Hi, Jeremy.

I'm glad you liked my post. Chickens are amusing, aren't they? ;P It has been slow progress, but slow and steady wins the race, right? I am always grateful for help, but I wouldn't feel comfortable hosting someone I don't know. If you happen to be in the area, though, please feel free to message me. I would love to meet a fellow permie. Have fun traveling the country!

-Dee

Hi, Skye.

I first became vegetarian, then vegan several years ago after watching one too many PETA videos and reading about how feedlot animals are kept and treated and what they are fed.  However, I did not feel as healthy or as strong after a while so I started eating meat again. As I live in the country now, I am lucky enough to be able to meet my local farmers, ask what these animals are being fed and how they are kept, and in some cases actually see it for myself. While I don't like the thought of animals dying to feed me, and I do believe everyone is entitled to make those decisions for themselves, to me, it is the natural way. Animals eat each other to survive and we are "human animals" who need to eat meat to be healthy.

I hope you find your perfect vegan/vegetarian woman.

If you were not in "the land of Lincoln", I'd be there in a flash.  I'm  6'4" Caucasian... Irish Catholic... and I have an immense fondness for Hispanic women and food.  I often consider moving to Oaxaca just for the food... seriously!  But...My family has been in the American South, between Wilmington and Charleston... since about 1670.  This is my home.  I have too many family cemeteries o tend to ever leave.... and I love the land, the people and the culture.

Hi, W.J.

I am all too familiar with the distance issue.  Mexican food happens to be my favorite as well. Well, you are very lucky to have your family so close to you and to be so deeply rooted to an area.  Having lived on both coasts, and in the South, I am now beginning to put down roots here in the Midwest.

Best of luck to you.

Hey, Ben.

Life is good!  This site is not the best for meeting people, though, at least not during the growing season. ;P

I hope things are going well for you.

Dee,
Please excuse my commenting on your search, but I was 62 when I married my wife, who was 26 at the time. It is OUR experience, that of all the qualities that are most significant in bringing two people to join in life and love, age is the least important. ....Nathan seems like a pretty cool guy.
-Best of luck and happiness in your quest.

Thank you for your kind words, Jim. Age seems to be less of a factor once you get older. While a young woman may be ready for a serious commitment at a relatively young age, I have found that it takes men a bit longer to get to that point.

You seem to be pretty amazing, and also well knowing of what you are looking for. Ive been single now for 5 years (45 yrs old) and actually currently not looking, but open to someone if God brings someone along. 2 kids, 18 and 15 (Girl/Boy).. and we all have lived in big cities to smaller cities.. recently sold our house in the city to find our 5-20 acres for our homestead/market farm/Permaculture farm.  We have no experience, but very open to taking the leap of faith.

Fiery red beard, but not much on top lol... For me, life is about being there for family, loyalty to your loved ones, and bringing them up in the right environment. Id rather be at home with family, enjoying time together... or on drive to see the beauty of God's creation. I would love to be able to wake up at 5am with the person I love... take in the beautiful sunrise while sipping tea or coffee.. and then with a big breathe of fresh air... start the day knowing that what I achieve and how I work is for the betterment of the family I love. I love being spontaneous... (ever try to get co-workers to sing a chanty). Love humor, love being close, love cuddling, and just random showing the person i love is the most important person.

Lol I'm a little opposite in how to dress.. I want to find something I feel comfortable in.. then buy 5 pairs of the same exact outfit and go with it every day. But I will have those special occasion clothes available (want to make wife feel special, and spontaneously take her for a special time). I do believe that the simple look is the most amazing... jeans and tshirt are tops.... but a women knows how gorgeous she can be when she wants... just all the time is too much for me.

Even though im responding, and think you are amazingly beautiful, at this point in my life i feel i want to establish myself first and just pray that if God wants to bring someone with like aspirations into this crazy daily whirlwind i call life... then i will be open.. but if not, im ok with it... God Bless and stay strong.... You seem to be

Dee, I just thought I'd chime in because you remind me so much of myself!  I'm 40, single and 5' tall on a good day, but I always dated tall men--usually 6 feet or even taller.  So funny. I've been a lurker here on Permies for a long time, but I just recently registered.  We are finally getting out of the suburbs, after we got busted by the local zoning commission for having hens.  In less than a month we are moving to a lovely little 5-acre farmette.....I say lovely, but really it's a mess.  But we are still excited to see how Permaculture can start to heal the place.  (We is my kiddos and I.)  Good luck to you!

Heyruthie,

Congratulations on your new place! I'm sure it's lovely - it's lovely because it's all yours! That's too funny about getting busted by the zoning department for having hens. It totally sounds like something I would have tried to get away with if I had my own yard when I lived in Chicago. ;P I'm glad it prompted you to get your own place where you can have all the hens you want! I've found that it takes me getting really upset to make the big changes I need to make. Lol. We need that cosmic kick in the butt sometimes! And funny that we're both tiny women who like tall men. I'll bet you have a big presence too. I wish you the best of luck with your new place!

-Dee

Greetings. Ok, I'm just a tad bit over your target age of prime males....at 50y/o...and that being said up front....I am however a SWM standing at 6 ft, 180lbs soaking wet....semi retired iorn worker/weldor/fabricator of metal. Easy going and looking for that "special someone". Not a fighter but a lover of Latina women having spent most of my adult life( when not working industrial shutdowns) in south Tejas. Am new to the online meet and greet, but trying to keep up😁. If I still have your undivided attention, you very well may refer to my recent posting on this site to uncover more about me, myself and I.
We l@@k forward to your reply.

Hi, Roberto.

Thank you for writing, but I'm looking for someone much closer to my age (5 years either way would be ideal). I read your post and am sorry to hear about your wife. I hope she is being treated well. 😕 I wish you luck in your endeavors in southern Tejas.

Hello Dee,
I'm 35 and a little over 5'11". I'm currently homesteading in TN but I would like to share my passion with another homesteader so I am willing to relocate. I don't think you have mentioned children. Are you interested in starting a family?

I have chickens and a dog. I love to garden and have sold vegetables in the past. I'm not very familiar with fruit farming but I love to learn as well.

Hi, Daniel.

You sound great. I don't mention children in my post because mine is grown (22). Unfortunately, by the time I get to that point in my next serious relationship where it would make sense to consider children, it will be too risky and/or difficult for me to conceive/carry a biological child. I wish you the best of luck finding your special someone, though.

-Dee

So starting there I’m 37   6’2” 230 lbs Caucasian or gringo vaquero, former Bronc rider who’s recently divorced and back from a 3 yr stint in Nome and St. Lawrence Island, Ak where I dredged for gold and worked as a carpenter for Denali General Contractors. Back on family farm in Kansas where we have 10,000 acres growing mainly wheat and corn. A welder, mechanic, Commercial Truck Driver, Heavy Operator, also have oil and gas leases
Though your looks are wonderful it’s the heart that I find most important due to the fact I grew up with sister and mom while dad traveled so am an highly sensitive to the feelings of all animals and women and children 👶. Hope to hear back

Good morning Dee I assume your somewhat of an early riser though if not I’m very considerate as I move about in the morning. Truth be told this time of year I tend to sleep on the river bank more often than not but I reckon with a woman as pretty as yourself it won’t take much to get me near. I take country living serious these days but lost my horses, trailer and personal truck in the divorce. I only miss my horses I’ve bought more trucks than I can count and every time I turn around someone has a horse they can’t afford even a handful. I want to get several and use them as therapy animals they are amazing healers. Anyway Ive had you on my mind ever sense seeing your post and pictures and yes we can’t control who we are attracted to and you are my type no doubt.  In opinion my only negative feature is have my teeth rearranged by hoof but greatful I didn’t lose any anand will get them fixed soon enough and only those who know me previously notice, I think it adds to my  curb appeal 🤪🤥John Henry’s my name but you can call me
