This feels a little vulnerable since I am not an established permie -- instead a circumstantial city dweller working on developing skills(never intended to be, and in choosing relationships over myself ended up here, and it's time to choose what I want in life and find a partner in that)

Female, 38, self employed and without financial resources (yes I work and pay my bills and will always expect to do so)  to offer however extremely resourceful in other ways.  A can do, and if I can't do I'll learn to do attitude. Independently content, personally responsible for my own: choices, actions, emotional states, and mental health  Yeah, in partnering this is important.  Comfortable with roughing and hardship. Flexible and adaptable, friendly and socially adept.

I've noticed some properties up North in an unorganized township with a bit of land, on excellent fishing lakes and about 40 minutes from town for extremely low prices.  They need work and the land will need to be worked.  I learn quick and do what it takes, am cheerful, friendly and kind.  This is the internet so I am a little shy about sharing my life story and personal pictures in a public post but would be more than happy to talk....   I would love a partnership with a considerate person that is committed to making it work.  That knows I'm there for him/her and we're in this together, that values the lifestyle and environment that this kind of thing brings. For me there is a definite reticence to doing it on my own, and I would like the companionship and developing love that would come from an endeavour of this magnitude.  

Seriously seeking a partner.

ps:  am a long time lurker... but only just signed up in order to post!  totally willing to be open with who I am, pictures, what I am about, history etc.  but not in a first post

I wasn't asking how to get replies but thank you for the advice :)  I will share pictures privately, as a current professional with a highly visible job, I do not share my personal life (in this type of context) in a public forum.

Hi Barb
I am a 47 year old man. I am in a similar boat, I am interested to learn more about you. I have a  waterfront Cabin in BC. If this is something that you might like, let me know.

Dear Barb,  your description of what you are seeking, seems to fit well with mine.  I retired at age 48, very financially secure.  I am a Veteran, retired union Journeyman Tinsmith, and have a nice log home in the western mountains of Maine. I maintain my home, equipment and vehicles myself, but I do not drive junk heaps. I am also an Artist, and I raise some animals as well.  Our home is surrounded by beautiful forest, mountains, and glass clear lakes, rivers and streams. My life is quite solitary, but I feel it is better to live life, rather than have life live you.  I will be glad to exchange images if you wish.  All the best in your search ~ Michael   foxcroft1800@yahoo.com
