I was surprised to see a singles forum here! I've lurked for years so it's a funny way to start posting, but what the hey.

I'm Jen, newly single after a four-year relationship. I moved out to rural Virginia (and West Virginia....it's a long story) during Covid to escape urban craziness, but it's pretty hard to find likeminded people. I've been building up my little food forest paradise here and have loved learning all things permaculture, it has become a huge passion of mine.

I'm politically homeless. Completely disgusted with the corruption and overreach of both parties. I have a PhD in political science and at this point in life, pretty much hate politics. If I had to identify with a political philosophy, maybe some kind of weird pacifist libertarian?

I don't fit into any organized religious paradigms either, but believe in an intelligent universe and constantly seek to understand it better through nature and radical honesty in relationship.

Oh, and I'm sober for 10+ years now, as well. Sober, vegan, radically honest....I'm a lot of fun at parties!

I'm looking for someone smart, funny, spiritually self-aware, and emotionally intelligent. I've been vegan for 20 years or so and while I hate to say it's a deal-breaker for you not to be, in most cases in my experience it does end up being so, because my ethics around it are so firm.

If any of this remotely resonates you should definitely reach out! jwhowk@pm.me.

Tried to post a hosted photo here but apparently that's too complicated for me to figure out. You're welcome to investigate my youtube channel (@jenhowkAK) or instagram (@mtnmoonfarm).

I think it is weird how the word weird winds up as descriptor of what should be normal things for us. I just thought I would say that, but also that I would be happy for contact as a friend, a male one though honestly I believe you would consider me too old for anything further, and that would be fair. I am vegan as well, about ten and a half years, most of those with the really healthy way I know for that, and I went without meat for many years longer. I would go fully off grid with simplicity growing things for food and needed and useful things, with having a sustainable way for living, I would also be joined with any who would also live in this way with what they can do for it if I can have that. My political position has grown to being anarchist. I believe in example being shown as the way effective for needed change. I think the intelligence and benevolence to look for I can think of as God, the Maker my existence is from which I can trust for care as I do things I am responsible for, and this could be generally for everyone.
