Well, "looking" might be the wrong way to put it :) I know it's a crapshoot, I'm mostly kind of hoping I might find a local permie since I am not really relocatable.
I'm actively homesteading on my 20 acres out here in Northeastern WA state. I've got poultry, meat rabbits, and am getting milk goats in a few days actually. I'm building my home as I go, out of pocket, so it is definitely a work in progress. I've been here for about 5 years and love it. When I moved into my house, it was just walls and a wood stove for heat & cooking. No power, no water, not even interior walls. I've slowly been finishing it as I go and am almost done except some of the siding and trims. I'm halfway off grid - still not sure if I want to connect fully or just get my own setup.
I am a single mom, divorced, with three kids that live with me and go to their dad's every other weekend. We get along fine, so no "ex drama." I'm a self employed graphic designer - I create artwork for businesses to use on decorative items like t-shirts and home decor. I love what I do and I'm able to work part-time and make a full-time income which leaves me free for a better work/life balance. Politically I'm a Libertarian, and spiritually I guess I'm a Christian heretic (basically a Christian who doesn't do the whole conservative Christian culture thing).
I'm a hard worker, pretty independent, active, driven & very goal oriented, and dedicated. I tend to be empathic and I have very high standards. I love reading, gardening, cooking and baking. I don't watch a ton of TV but I do like scifi/action/geeky type movies. I'm definitely creative but also pragmatic and logical. I'm an INTP. I am very independent but tend to be pretty easygoing and flexible and most of the time I just go with the flow.
I'm looking for someone likeminded who is intelligent, self motivated, ambitious and an out of the box thinker. He has goals in life, and is actively working towards achieving them. Someone who is looking for an actual equal partner (and not just someone to be his mom and/or sugar momma). He'll be secure enough to not be threatened by a woman who is independent and is her own person. I'd also prefer mid-30s to mid-40s in terms of age.
I am looking for the life your living, I so want a simple off grid life with some one who isn't afraid of that lifestyle. most women I meet aren't interested in it at all. I am 37 years old, single, no kids but always wanted to be a father, I have a 5 month old dog named fern. I have many life skills that could be used on a off grid farm. I am an open book just ask away, I am not the kind of person who judges, labels, leaches off others. I would never ask you for anything you wouldn't want to give. my goal is to be off the grid with in two years, I want to bee a farmer. names Richard hopper please contact me if your interested
this is supposed to be a surprise, but it smells like a tiny ad:
