I'm a single white male on this whirlin' ball of mud who is very much into homesteading and I'm looking for a cool chick to chat with! Who knows what might grow from there ---just tossin' this out into the universe! (pics below)

Monty Python and the Holy Grail High Noon (I've seen a ton of old cowboy movies and a lot of the old west tv shows like Gunsmoke ---Festus is the bestus lol) Game of Thrones Lord of the Rings Kingkiller Chronicles It Happened on Fifth Trading Places Battlestar Galactica The Prophet Downton Abbey The Expanse
Physical Appearance, Values & History
As for physics, I'm in good shape, not overweight, healthy with straight teeth and a full head of hair (pics below) If you're into spicy ---then check out my pick pic. As for values, I consider myself conservative and not really religious. I don't smoke or do drugs and only enjoy beer and wine, and on the rare occasion a cocktail. Importantly, I have definitely found in the past that opposites do attract; somehow there tends to be a natural sort of chemistry there that just manifests, however, I've learned downplaying important differences "to make something work" is really a mistake. As for my history, I've never married and don't have kids. I've had a couple long term relationships that didn't work out, which kinda goes back into what I was saying about chemistry taking a front seat and values and differences a back seat. My last LTR ended over three years ago and I've just been working and having fun with my hobbies since. I'm not really into dating apps or sites so you wont find me there. Low and behold ---while digging around on permies I found they've got a singles thread, so I figured why not, this place is for goofballs after all.
If you made it this far, congratulations! You're probably wondering ---who is this cool chick I'd like to chat with. Well... she's speckled, loves her feathers ruffled, cold hardy--- Oh, wait ---no that's the chicken I want to meet ---an Orlaff chicken. lol
This person I hope to chat with...
... finds herself in nature; the spirit of the outdoors fills her with happiness and it is by this wellspring she cannot help but share her smile with the world. ...slaps mosquito... She finds herself breathing deeply of the dawn breeze, or well... the almost dawn breeze, or ah... she's pretty sure it's the dawn breeze ---blown from the next time zone over because... well, it's windy. And with the same eye a master painter surveys canvas or a sculptor clay, she looks upon the land and sees the potential; the possibilities and most importantly the fun ...and sees she's gonna need to crack open another beer to get this garden planted right. ...picks off tick...
She's got a sense of humor
She also embraces self sufficiency; taking pride in standing on her own two feet, her passion might be in cultivating her own business ---perhaps it's her love of pottery or natural soaps or something else. Or perhaps she's found her calling working with animals or elsewhere ---but whatever her pursuit, it has inspired her so much so that she's tasted the fruits of success; knows the flavor of independence, and like a sommelier ---deduced its key ingredients as hard work and the avoidance of debt.
Beyond her day to day, as the sun sinks into the horizon, her attention turns to an evening meal and for her, cooking has become one of the creative outlets she loves; and she loves it even more when she can share the fun with a kitchen copilot. I myself am no stranger to the culinary arts. Health and wellness are important to her; she's in good shape like myself ---and feels passionately about eating healthy. Anticipation fills her as she rattles around the fridge, why? Because she planted and cared for these greens; maybe she's reaching for her Tronchuda (Portuguese) Kale, or her Red Rat's Tail Radishes or her Sunrise Bumblebee Tomatoes. Who wouldn't be excited to taste these? This person I'm hoping to chat with probably has a seed catalog or two around the house ---or finds her curiosity piqued and just tossed one in a shopping cart.
With her fingers brushing the pages of an old cookbook; its worn pages showing more than a few splatters from bygone years, her gaze settles upon some faded scribbles written long ago by someone dear to her. For a moment, fond memories bring forth a sentimental smile and when at last her thoughts wander back from the past, she next begins to wonder about her future. She considers herself family oriented, and with an eye toward having a family of her own one day, she'd likely be on the earlier side of adulthood knowing with time, starting a family can become more difficult. She hasn't begun that journey with anyone yet; and she's in no rush, but knows this is something she wants from life.
Night falls and she might find herself relaxing with a glass of wine, perhaps enjoying some of her crafts or playing music. Maybe she's got a show streaming in the background while she thumbs through a book or article hoping to learn something new ---she has a curious mind, and the wheels of her thoughts turn on her next project or interest ---maybe it's pickling, canning, composting, or could be anything from vermiculture to even growing edible mushrooms. Who knows, it could be anything, but she's definitely the type who is cooking up new ideas for her next project because ---it's fun!
Are you her? ...Or do you know her?
So if you've read all this and thought to yourself ...omg... this is totally me... drop me an email and say hi! I'd love to see what you're up to, from your plants to your prize chicken! Maybe after reading all of this you recognized this person and thought ...omg... this is totally my friend/niece/daughter... If you think you might know her, please forward this to her ---and let them know you just found the perfect complete stranger on the internet for them. lol!
Hi I'm Angie. You sound great you look great and place looks amazing and would love to get to know you

I’ve just recently finished the purchase of 100 acres in East Tennessee that was an old homestead dating back to the 1800’s.
It’s an amazing place with lots of potential; springs, hardwoods, pastureland and seclusion.
The soil is great and the farm desires a lot to get started. I’m currently in the process of moving my RV there which will have running water from the spring and a combo solar/propane generator set to start with.
I’ve just repatriated to the States after many years around the world and am seeking a team mate to share ideas and help build a vision for the farm together, construct a home and focus on income production.
My job is a remote working job so I have a lot of flexibility and freedom. My ideal soon to be friend would be a like-minded woman that is also encouraged by living sustainably in all aspects of life. The rest of the like mindedness will come through conversation.
Please reach me singles, couples and others in the area. Always willing to exchange ideas and help others.
