Does anyone else on here feel frustrated by the dating scene? I am deep into peak oil and climate issues, and would really like to meet someone who "gets it" but it is so rare that I meet aware people (yes, even in BC, this bastion of granola-eating). I'd love to meet a fella between 36 and 50 who is interested in building a sustainable relationship and lifestyle (as much as that is possible) including having a permie farm. I'm 42 but I'm often told that I look much younger (I guess a lifetime of fitness and mostly veggie/organic food has paid off!) At this point I'm not interested in birthing kids, but I'm open to options and if you already have kids, great. I did my permaculture training at a Quaker retreat centre in Pennsylvania last summer and can't wait to get on some land. I'm open to moving but I do think that BC is a great place to ride out the Great Turning.
My interests include: reading non-fiction (esp. energy and resource issues, permaculture-related, ecopsychology), skiing (x-c and downhill), hiking, running, cycling, yoga, paddling, gardening and more). I'm starting to learn more about food preservation. I also love a great documentary or live music show. I have a really curious mind and I enjoy taking courses to expand my knowledge. And, as much as I love to get dressed up, as you can see from my photo, I don't mind getting dirty! Word that describe me: soulful, visionary, creative, easy-going, intelligent, funny, kind, inquisitive, fit, youthful.
I have spent years lurking far and wide on the Internet, never needing to announce my presence. For every insightful comment there seemed a magnitude or more of trash. To put a prairie spin on an old saying, "a poor wheat to chaff ratio" exists out there. Your comment on the dating scene likely reflects something similar. You changed all that when "fit female Pisces permie" seized on my weakness for alliteration.
Perhaps that is overly dramatic... now you have me flustered enough to start splitting infinitives! I was an awkward geek long before it became trendy. Now I am semi-retired, working three nights a week at a modest job that still pays living expenses and more. The rest of the time is life experimentation in a very progressive rural municipality.
As alluded to above, I live in Saskatchewan at an ecovillage (www.craikecovillage.com) as part of the Craik Sustainable Living Project. I don't share your extroverted bravery about posting photos, but you could see me on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0G95-nKkWus) about six minutes in. It was recorded in 2008 but I don't age that quickly. The beard was shaved once my drivers licence photo updated.
Stats? Born in 1965; BMI about 23; Height 5'8"; old enough to still use inches, apparently; IQ 147 but still appear stupid to the local farmers on a regular basis. Is this information relevant? Can you surmise my inexperience in this area? Am I supposed to be selling myself somehow?
Let me finish for now by saying I appreciate your posting. You appear wonderful. Upon reflection of my own past, I realized that people that have mattered do not correlate to any particular criteria. None of them would return from a database query. Whatever happens, you have already bestowed (ack, another split infinitive!) a positive vibe. Thank you.
