Looking for a fellow homestead dreamer

I'm a 20-year-old female (but I'm questioning my gender right now; maybe I'm gender fluid?) bisexual history education major who is taking steps to one day have an off grid homestead. I'm open to females, males, enbys, and others. I'm looking for a serious monogamous relationship that has the potential for a future. I also wouldn't mind meeting new friends who are interested in homesteading.

I found out about homesteading a few years ago and I have been on a journey to learn as much as I can, and I'm trying to do that learning through hands-on experiences whenever possible. At my college, I am in charge of a flock of 20 chickens. We also grow vegetables that we give away to students at weekly markets. I must confess, I know more about animals (especially chickens) than I do about gardening/plants, and I would love to find a partner or friend that will teach me more about that side of homesteading. I am currently learning more about aquaponics and permaculture. My journey to homesteading started with a tiny house obsession, and it is still my goal to live in a small space with minimal possessions.

I was born into a very religious family (Southern Baptist/non-denominational) and as I have become an adult, I have been on a journey with my faith too. I consider myself a spiritual person, and I regularly attend conservative Quaker meetings. Politically I consider myself a Libertarian. I guess I'm close enough to the classification of ancarcho-capitalism, but my perfect utopia would consist of a primarily barter economy and no regulations besides securing life, liberty, and property. I support LGBTQA+ and BLM. My religious and my political views don't factor as much into who I look for in a partner, but I thought it would be nice to share them because I spend many nights staying awake and pondering these things (If we were in a relationship religion and politics would be topics I would probably gush about too much). I do want to be someone who at least has an open mind and empathy for others.

I live in Virginia and I would like to find someone close to me, but I'm not opposed to a long distance relationship, especially during Covid. Age doesn't matter to me either. I'm not vegan, and I don't care if that is your lifestyle, but don't judge me for eating meat. My love language is mostly words of affirmation, but I also treasure physical touch and quality time. I mostly show love with words of affirmation and quality time. I am an introvert, but once you get to know me, you can't get me to shut up. I am an INFJ, so I will ask you a million times how you are feeling and if you are mad at me. My perfect day with my partner would start with shared homestead chores in the morning, afternoon lunch break with fresh vegetables we grew and lots of laughs, reading time in the afternoon on the couch together, and Netflix and cuddles at night. I want someone I can talk, grow, and share a homestead with. I love to get to know more about you!

Also, I use a pseudonym on here. Marie is my middle name, but Christine is my first name.

I brought this back from the farm where they grow the tiny ads:
