Would you like to move to Dominica with me?
I am 46. My children are all grown and I am free to live my dream. I am moving to Dominica.
I live a healthy lifestyle. I eat healthy and exercise.
I am kind and a lady. I lift up and build up.
My motto is " They may forget your face. They may forget your name but they will never forget the way you make them feel"
A little more about me... let's see. I am emotionally secure. I attempt to learn something new every day. I believe it is important to grow and learn your entire life.
I am physically attracted to strong masculine hands.
I like to predict so I am not big on surprises or spontaneity. I like the color green and am addicted to sunshine and warmth. I do not function well in the cold weather and live most of the winter as a hermit.
I am not a big fan of dogs, sports or Harley's. I am a nature, hippie type woman. Permaculture. I am seeking a partner to live an independent and self sustaining life with me.
I am on social media as well. Please drop me a line and I will be happy to share that with you.

I have not been to Dominica, except as a child but don’t remember much, but tropics are in my blood as I was raised in Africa. One of my bestest friends lived in Jamaica and went to a lot of the islands. I heard stories that Dominca is where the islanders go to holiday lol.
That was harsh! . The hurricanes. It seems a earth sheltered house would be smart Permaculture design? Or a shack that is expendable then build a new one.

Domes. Concrete domes are the thing now. Or, like you said, a shack to rebuild. It is amazing cheap to live there. Everything is fresh. Relaxed island life. I miss it so much.

I stand to inherit a concrete dwelling built by a Dutchman in the hills of the Dominican Republic (different place, I know). I hear they don't levy taxes unless you earn too much money and small change can be in the form of Chiclets (candy) Ha ha.

Haha....Chiclets...I love it. Yes, the laid back life and living with the natural rhythms is something I miss too.
To endlessly follow and chase money in the modern world can be exhausting. And tough on this beautiful world.
I learned scuba diving in South Florida and did a little diving. What a trip that was! Like entering another reality. But snorkeling is my favorite. And plain old fashioned swimming.

You may need to learn to latin dance. The Dominican woman taught me to dance in one night. They are very proud of their dancing. And they do it all the time. She told me that about half of the music comes from Dominica and all the best dancers are. I told Mexican women that and nobody argues with it. Must be true.
I love to hear more about how it goes there.
I'm open to options to the United States.

Really, that dance sounds like a blast. Warm nights and sea breezes. Could go for a dose of that. Maybe someday. Vamos.

I did not know about the dancing. I will need to explore this.
Dominica offers more freedom than I was aware exists. And I live in the land of the free. Taxes are pretty much non existent and You can (most do) harvest anywhere on the island (not private land). Everything is fresh and the water is so clean and tastes amazing. There is very little to pay for and what you do pay for costs very little. There are no permits to be had and the laws are mainly moral ones.
The people are very nice however you can still catch some contempt. The current residents on the island are descendant from slaves as the island was once a slave hub.

Aside from driving on the wrong side of the road and they drive like maniacs on them mountain roads I see no fault with Dominica. America is falling and I do not want to be here when it does. I am adding expat to my resume.
